Photo Diary #106: October 06, 2018 Saturday, War Memorial and Floriade

I promised myself to go around more after watching a Youtube video on loving and living life instead of chasing your dream all the time. And so I set up this day for Floriade and Poppies garden even if my papers aren’t done yet.  Thank you God for bringing me here in Australia.

Photo Journal #296: March 01, 2015 (Sunday)/Boating

The photos do not reflect what we felt while going back to the shore. Of course, I failed to take a photo of what happened because we were all focused on asking God to calm the waves. While praying, I also constantly repeated in my mind like a mantra this strong sentence, “I’m not going to die here.” Knowing that God protects those He loves, amidst the fear, I was calm and positive, a quality I would have never discovered about myself. Second life? Salamat sang daku, Jesus.

In the afternoon, I watched the sunset with cousins while eating pizza and enjoying the conversations in between at La Veranda. IMG_7424 IMG_7426 IMG_7428 IMG_7432 IMG_7429 IMG_7430 IMG_7431

Photo Journal #294: February 27, 2015 (Friday)/Sunset at Sipalay City

We had three activities lined up for today:

1. Dine with Tita Regie’s co-teacher

2. Visit mama’s grandfathers in the cemetery

3. Watch the sunset at Sipalay Bay

One thing I realized while traveling again, it’s better to savor the moment than take photos every second. 😀IMG_7073 IMG_7067 IMG_7066 IMG_7065 IMG_7063 IMG_7062 IMG_7061 IMG_7057 IMG_7056 IMG_7054 IMG_7039 IMG_7043 IMG_7048 IMG_7050 IMG_7049 IMG_7036 IMG_7033 IMG_7031 IMG_7030 IMG_7030 IMG_7029 IMG_7027 IMG_7026 IMG_7023 IMG_7021 IMG_7010 IMG_7011 IMG_7014 IMG_7016 IMG_7018

Photo Journal #293: February 26, 2015 (Thursday)/First Time in Bacolod

Today, I woke up at 3:00 a.m. to prepare for our 7:25 a.m. flight to Bacolod city. I thank God for our safe journey, my  cousins, the amazing scenery to Sipalay city and my lola. IMG_6963 IMG_6964 IMG_6965 IMG_6966 IMG_6967 IMG_6968 IMG_6969 IMG_6970 IMG_6971 IMG_6973 IMG_6981 IMG_6982 IMG_6987 IMG_6988 IMG_6989 IMG_6990 IMG_6994 IMG_6997 IMG_7001 IMG_7002 IMG_7003 IMG_7004 IMG_7006 IMG_7009

Photo Journal #34: June 12, 2014 (Thursday)

As usual, we got it fixed again and so I ended being cuddled by my sister. Today’s independence day and Sta. Ana parish PCLM’s outing!!! The resort (Olaer) was not at all inviting. In fact, it appears squalid due to the fallen leaves from the trees that surrounded the spring resort. But it didn’t bother me at all! It’s the presence, the event and the people that truly mattered anyway. Usually, dressing up after a swim frazzles me but today, it didn’t. It was just fun washing up with three to four girls under a shower and only wearing *you know* in front of women who were completely undazzled by the scene. Tata (my other maid) and I stayed and enjoyed the oreo coffee and choco muffins in a certain cafe at Robinson’s after the outing.
