Bye For Now

I noticed that I've been through a lot of Despedida (A Spanish word the means Farewell or Goodbye) lately, and I just figured out that most of my friends are neither outside the country or about to leave the country. It makes me envious though, thinking that most of them will be having a better future. Being overseas opens a lot of doors and tons of opportunities (Noticed how many "S" I used? lol.) but thinking about the things and people that I'll be leaving behind, makes my heart melt. I'll going to miss everything about my home. I know I'm such a coward for not having the guts to step out of my comfort zone, but hey, who needs to rush? I'm young and I've got a lot of things to learn It's very clear to me that that day will come that I have to leave everything behind. I'm just prolonging the inevitable. For now, I'm enjoying the company of my friends, the comfort of my home, the warmth of my family and the simple joys of being on my haven. Don't worry, when that "time" comes, I'll let you know every detail of it. I promise. :)

Last Sunday, Jr and I together with his friends The Buddies grabbed a dinner to say goodbye to Mick, he's bound to London this Friday. We had a sumptuous supper at Lamarang Steaks and Seafood Restaurant here at Cabanatuan. It offers home cooked meals and of course seafoods and steaks on affordable prices. The place has Bahay Kubos (Nipa Hut) that gives this fresh and homey feeling (I regret not having a snap shot, don't worry, I won't forget it next time). We had Gising Gising, Beef Kare-Kare, Shrimp Tempura and Buttered Chicken. (Forgive me for I won't be able to make your mouth water, I neglect to take some photos on the food. My bad.)

Right after the storm! ha,ha
As I said, there were no food left, and it almost felt like a hurricane just passed by. lol.
Everybody was full and hyped.
L-R: Meek, My Kuya Allan, My Jr, Me, Cris, Annie, Mick, Eric and Eric's friend (Oh please forgive me, no matter how much I recall, I can't remember his name. Please, please forgive me.)
P.S. you'll notice the yellow thingy in the middle, it's a buzzer. Yes, a buzzer. It's used to call the attention of the waiter. Convenient eh? Wish they could put bells instead. Lol :p

After the overwhelming dinner, what's next? Of course! Dessert!!!
We went to Yogurtree, a frozen yogurt/ice cream parlor here again in Cabanatuan. It offers, of course, frozen yogurt, ice creams, espresso based drinks, sandwiches and pasta. The place has this cozy, relaxing and comfortable feeling. Everyone of us had Frozen Yogurts with the toppings of our choice except Jr, he hates yogurt by the way. He had ice cream instead. Everyone had their own conversation going, occasionally laughing at each other. I didn't felt the sadness on the air, I just felt real friendship and in spite of the teasing I felt their concern and happiness for Mick.

With Mick and Criselda. Although I haven't got the chance to spend more time with Mick I know how a wonderful person he is. And he will surely be missed.

Please forgive this. I can't resist putting this. I super adore that cute little drawer. Jr and I even attempted to steal it, unfortunately the store is equipped with CCTV. Lol.

I look cute here. Right? Lol. :p

With Criselda. She had blueberry syrup, cheesecake and Kitkat while I had Koko Crunch, Choco Chips and Kitkat! Yum-O! :)

My Jr had Cheese Kasoy Macapuno Ice Cream. It's heaven by the way. He dreads yogurt actually, I mentioned that already right? :)

We're hyped and full of energy, maybe because of the sweets? But all in all. I had a great time. I'm looking forward for next time. :)

After the sweets, we decided to call it a day since Jr needs to go back to Manila that'll take three or fours of travel. Before we go, I hugged Mick and I told him to take care. We also had a group hug! It made me feel good actually, it's nice to know that there are people that you can count on to hug you when you need one and that's priceless. To Mick, I hope you'll take care, it was so nice meeting you and let's bond when you get back. :)

P.S. Thanks to Meek (Micheal Mercado) for the photos, you're really like a pro! :)

More to come Hearties!

Love Lots,



When we're not fighting, we're fooling around. We only see each other every weekend (because Jr works in Manila I'll tell you the whole thing next time) and we make it appoint to spend every minute of that two days together. I often tease him that I'm his weekend girl friend (Don't worry I'll try to write something about that too) but he usually doesn't pay attention. :)
Jr and I are kids by heart. We play games and tease each other, and I always end up pissed off. As I told you, Jr's talent is pissing me off. We love doing things together. I can't tell you all our crazy antics together since it's too many, but one thing's for sure, we always have the tendency to get crazy. :)

Now lemme show you some of the photos that we got over the year/s (LOL), and I promise to describe each of it as best as I can. Here we go.. :)

Believe it not, we love to look like idiots sometimes. :p

During our trip to Baguio last February, it was also the celebration of Panagbenga or the Flower Festival, we spent three days there. We saw the flower floats and the street dancing competition. It was our first and wish we could go there again next year. :) 

The piggy back ride. Whenever I get tired from too much walking or whether I don't feel like walking anymore, Jr never hesitates to carry me. When I say wherever, I mean wherever. Even when people starts to stare. :) 

At Barj Coffee shop with Jr's friends last December 2009. He was based at Singapore that time, he just went home for three days just to see and spend Christmas with his family and me.  

During one of the long drives. Jr doesn't adore driving, when traveling he rather sleep than drive, my friends can attest to that. :)
But he can't fall asleep when I'm the one behind the wheel. :p

Our Power Ranger watch. I told him that we can communicate  with each other using this watch and we we're like pretending the whole day that we could hear each other while whispering to the watch. I can't help but laugh when I remember how we fooled ourselves. :p

Jr adores sunnies! He got this little collection of weird and interesting pieces. I wish I could show them to you. :)

He spoiled me. Whenever he's around he makes it appoint to pick me up from work or wherever. ♥

Our Rosalinda and Jose Fernando imitation. My friends did this to us, but we liked it anyway. :)

At Stone8 Resort with my friends. :)
The good thing about us is that we became friends with each other friends. Got it? lol.

Jr got this from Singapore. When he gave it to me, I was like, really shocked.  Because you see, that time, he's not that good on showing how he really felt. But he changed and a lot of people noticed that. Some people said that I did that to him, but I really don't know what I did, I just loved him and I made him feel it. :)

During a night out with my friends. I'm really not a party girl type. I don't adore dicso clubs and the like.  I rather stay on a coffee shop and drench myself on caffeine. I don't like live bands and the smoke and the noise. I'd rather sit on a cozy couch and chit chat with friends, but sometimes, I had no choice but to blend in the crowd. And besides, I needed to experience different things, so I'm trying it with my good old friends. I once tried dancing, and it made me feel good, but I rather not do it regularly. Once in a while is enough for me. ;)

Our trip to Tarlac. I told Jr I wanted a barbecue on a sizzling plate and we almost searched all over Tarlac. (See, I told you I'm spoiled). Good thing we saw Reyes' Barbecue. :)

Our trip to Aurora, as I said on my previous blog that we travel as much as we can. Aurora is like a two hour drive from our place. Maybe that's the reason we've been there twice.

If I remembered it right, my sister took this photo during our lunch at Mang Inasal here at Cabanatuan.  I can fairly say that Jr has a good relationship with my siblings. And my Mom and Dad loves him. :)

Matched! Probably Jr's getting tired of it. I always wanted for our things to be matched. As a couple, for me, it's mandatory. He can't do anything. I'm his Boss. :p 

Our trip to the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta at Clark, Pampanga. He taught me how to fly a kite. Jr and I had a different  childhood. He had a lot of friends growing up, you'll frequently see him on the street when he was young, He knows all the street games that you could think of. Whilst I, on the other hand, stays at home, not allowed to go out. Doesn't have childhood friends aside from my cousins, doesn't even know how to play Paway and spends the whole day at my room watching Aladdin and playing Barbie dolls with my sister. But I never regret it. And it wasn't late to learn these stuffs, good thing Jr's there teaching me. :p

Fooling around again. One of the things that Jr does the best. Lol. :p

Whilst on the queue at Enchanted Kingdom last January with my sister and friends. Thinking about the closeness that Jr developed with my loved ones really makes me happy.

Even though we've been together for almost two years now, we still discover new things about each  other. And we're loving each other in spite of the flaws. ♥

One of the sweetest thing.. An episode of our arm wrestling (one of our many so-called games) Jr and I always fool around. We're like kids, sometimes it feels that we'll never grow up. We fight over the silliest stuff. We argue a lot but we always kiss and make up. Our relationship isn't just a walk in the park.we learned to compromise. Good thing he's always willing to loose every game just for me to be happy. ♥

I don't know what the future holds and it seems like everybody's going on their own paths. I can't tell what will happen, but I'm enjoying every moment with Jr. I know that nothing's temporary and eventually everything will fade nor disappear. And believe me, God knows how much I fear for that time. Some says that love is a game and you shouldn't lay all your cards of the table because it'll make you vulnerable. I say, loving someone more that you though you could is the best feeling in the world. And knowing that that someone loves you too is better.

Maybe I'm love struck-ed or hopeless romantic, you're probably getting sick of it.
Forgive me for I can't help it. I wanted to make him feel how much I love him and this is my simple way of showing it. I wanted to tell the whole cyber-virtual world that I do.
And maybe Nicholas Sparks did this to me too. So blame him also. :p

That's for now, you'll probably seeing a lot of this later. I know sometimes it's vomit-inducing. Please bear with me. I'm in love. ♥

More to come Hearties!

Love Lots,

Look Book

I've been very vocal about my dreams of becoming a fashion designer someday. And I wanted to start on myself. lol. I just opened an account on LookBook. I still don't know the perks of the site but I was really fascinated and envious. And a lot of people inspired me too and I see no harm on trying, so I signed up and let's just see where it'll lead me. So, please, hype me and I'll adore you forever! :)

Being Under Satan's Yoke

I realized everyone I know is busy or at least keeping their selves busy. When I was texting my friend Mae from Taiwan (because it's her birthday, Happy Birthday again Mae! I miss you!) we came across this idiom, and from that I became to wonder if truly these things can occur. I go to church every Sunday with my boy friend or at least we tried to. We make it appoint to hear the holy mass at least once a week, as a Christian I think it is our responsibility to do so, okay, hang on. I'm not trying to preach around here. I'm just reminding you. And if you don't get what I'm saying, it's fine with me. Okay? Relax. and I think that's what everybody needs nowadays, a time to relax, unwind and put things on perspectives. I'm not as busy as a bee, I still find time to do my nails or read a book but I know that time will come, and I just have to be prepared for that, I guess, but for now, I'm enjoying all my free time and savoring it.    

And if your having a good time reading, read this story that I got from the web.

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.

In his opening address he said, "We can't keep Christians from going to church. We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth.
We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their Saviour. Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken. So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.."

"This is what I want you to do," said the devil:

"Distract them from gaining hold of their Saviour and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.

"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow. Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles. Keep them from spending time with their children. As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work! Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice. Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive. To keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays non-biblical music constantly."

"This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ. Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers. Pound their minds with the news
24 hours a day. Invade their driving moments with billboards. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogues, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes."

"Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become
dissatisfied with their wives. Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night. Give them headaches too! If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere. That will fragment their families quickly!"

"Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children the real meaning of Christmas. Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk
about his resurrection and power over sin and death."

"Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have them return from their recreation exhausted. Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect
on God's creation. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead."

"Keep them busy, busy, busy!"

"And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences. Crowd their lives
with so many good causes they have no time to seek power from Jesus. Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health
and family for the good of the cause."

"It will work! It will work!"

It was quite a plan!

The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busier and more rushed, going here and there... Having little time for their God or their families. Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives.

I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?
You decide...

Love Lots,

Paradise by a Hundred

I can't tell you how much I love the beach. I don't have a particular favorite because every one is different from the other. Since it's summer here in the Philippines I was dying to set my toes on the sand and feel the salty air of the sea. And thank Heavens it heard my prayer! :)

On the 7th day of May this year Jr and I together with his friends The Buddies went to one of the most beautiful places I've seen, The Hundred Island National Park in Pangasinan. Yey! Actually the whole trip took almost a month of preparation and I even thought it won't push through, thanks to Criselda and Annie and of course Jr for fixing, arranging and preparing everything. :)
(Honestly, the trip was new to me, since I'm not the person in charge, in most trips that I've been, I'm usually the one who's doing the preparation and cramming. So it felt good. Really.) :p
We were set to leave Cabanatuan City at around 3:30 in the morning but we left at 4:30am. Talk about Fi-Li-Pi-No time? lol. We rented a van that will take us to Alaminos City (Where Hundred Island is located). I met most of Jr's friends already, and even though I was a new acquaintance they treated me nicely and the trip by land which took almost 3 hours didn't turn out to be boring (maybe because I was asleep the whole time? lol.). We ate breakfast at a Jollibee store that I can't remember where. ha,ha
We even went to the market to buy food since Annie said we won't be able to buy at the island. I admire Alaminos' public market, it's clean and organized, compared to the market where I live.
We arrived at Baranggay Lucap at around 10am and we went straight to the office of the tourism to settle our stuffs. They took our names for insurance purposes, they also assigned a boat that will take us to the islands. All in all we paid 2000php for the stuff that we rented (e.i, goggles, life vests, and other utensils) and 3000php for the boat ride and island hopping plus 400php for the Department of Tourism that I really don't understand what's for. lol They did not explain everything and that's the problem with the Philippine Government but that's another part of the story so I won't elaborate on that. :p

All in all, I had a wonderful trip with ten adorable people namely Criselda, Annie, Leah, Ace, Rael, Von, Eric, Kuya Ed, Kuya Cris and of course my Jr.  :)

Another first of us. Definitely unforgettable! :p

At the store outside the tourists welcoming center at the Hundred Island National Park where you can find probably all the souvenirs you could think of.

with Leah, it was my first time to meet her. I can tell she's nice and cheerful. We were both scared at snorkeling at first but we conquered our fears and we had one hell of a good time! :)
Also at the Tourists Welcoming Center, with Rael this time. He's nice also and funny. It was really nice meeting him. :) 

The boat ride was frightening at first. It was not my first time to ride a boat but it still give me the creeps every time. I was scared to got sea sick (Dyahe! lol) but luckily, I quickly got used to it. The ride took about 10-15 minutes, but it didn't bother us because the view is over whelming it took us a lot of time to absorb it.

The mesmerizing Light House. I just wished we had more time so we were able to explore it. :(
Next time. :

Before the boat ride, if you can notice the children on the water, they are a very good  swimmer. Usually the tourists throw  coins onto the sea and the kids will swim to retrieve the it.

Good thing I didn't get sea sick. Or else I won't be able to enjoy the wonderful view that awaited us. :)
I really adore the life vests for it gave me the assurance that I won't get drown. lol.
And orange is beginning to be my favorite color. I think it suits me. Lol
The boat fees are ranging from 1,500php-3,00php depending on the negotiation between you and your boat man.
One of the Island that we saw, most of the islands are well preserved and I'm happy that the next generation will be able to experience something as beautiful as this. :)

A view from the boat. Water and the wind hit my face a lot of time but I made no fuzz about it. I was enjoying the moment. :)
After approximately 10-15 minutes (according to Jr's estimating powers) we arrived at The Governor's Island. I asked our Guide Eric (Whose only 18 years old. I interviewed him a little. He said he's doing it for the summer to help his family, and his graduating from high school, I told him to continue his studies. And according to him, he earns 500php per day, depending on the number of tourists. Seasonal, he says. Too much for the side way story, back to the main thing) why it's called Governor's Island, he said that it is the largest island and it holds the highest peak where in you could see most of the other island and let me tell you, the view is literally breath taking. We arrived at the island around 11am and the sun is angrily beaming at us and we had to endure more than a hundred huge steps just to get there. Believe me, we were almost soaking with sweat when we reached the top, but every step was worth it. When we reached the top, we couldn't believe something as beautiful like that existed. :)

Just to show you how hot it was. I kept dragging Jr to the shade. Good thing I brought a hat. And don't wonder why Jr is so tan after that. :p 

It's the climb! lol!
Really, we were literally breathless when we reached the top. Whew!

Jr, being the protective boyfriend that he is. He never goes less that a foot from me because he knows I'm clumsy and sometimes I can't control when gravity pulls and he's scared that I might fall or something.

At the peak. The jaw dropping view. We managed to smile in spite of the scorching heat. :)  

The gang under the burning heat on Governor's Island. :)

At the Governor's Island. The grandest Island I think. It also holds the Big Brother House that was used  during the Teen Edition. Although I haven't verified that information because I'm not that interested at all because I'm not a huge fan of the show.

Our Boat named King Nixon. I forgot to asked our boat man why it's called like that. :p

Mesmerizing. Endearing. You judge. :)

Heart heartbreakingly beautiful. I couldn't say more.

I would personally like to thank Ace for holding the camera most of the time! Thank you for the wonderful photos. Till next time! :)

Governor's Island from a far. We fought the urge to dive into the water. :p

The Notorious Jellyfish. Responsible for Von's and Ace's itchiness. :p 

After taking so much photos we were dropped by our boat man to the next island which is the Quezon Island named after the former president of the Philippines. It is the largest island and probably the most developed. It has fine white sand and a snorkeling haven. It also has a few variety stores which sells over priced goods (Believe me, when I say over priced I mean over priced. You can buy a vinegar on a sachet for 20php that usually costs 7php and a tasty bread for 120php that normally costs 50php.) a rest room and some cottages. It also has designated places where you can cook, grill and prepare your food but the island doesn't have anything aside from sea water, good thing we brought purified drinking water with us. Also the rest room doesn't have normal water, so when you take a bath you have no choice but to use the sea water which will make your hair and body sticky and let me tell you that it was the stickiest feeling I ever felt. lol.

At Quezon Island. People didn't mind the heat. The water's really refreshing.

From 10am-3pm the sun's rays is very harmful to the skin and I promised myself I won't go under the sun during that time, but I ate everything I said. I wasn't able resist the clearness of the water. :p 

With Criselda and Ace. Criselda was one of the people who really  made this trip possible. And I give my thanks to her. And Ace is also a wonderful person. ;)

I can't resist to include this photo. I find it so cute! lol.
At Quezon Island, Jr and I admiring the clearness of the water. ♥

As always the sunset was breath taking. I really can't help to pause for a while and savor every minute of it.
One of the numerous attempt for a perfect jump shot. :)
Promise. We really did try our best on having the perfect jump shot. We tried and tried but we got tired! Lol.
The Mandatory picture! I fell in love with the sunset and the guy I'm kissing! lol!
After settling down, we had grilled fish and chicken adobo for lunch. After taking rest and fixing our stuff it was time to feel the water. The beach has this blue and green color, it's also clear so you can really see from the surface. We went swimming and snorkeling. I was so freaking scared at first since I have no idea how to swim, but all my fears melt away when I saw the things under water. I saw starfishes, corals, school of fish and NEMO (Seeing Nemo really brought the kid in me. Heaven knows how much I wanted to catch him! lol) and Dory (Nemo's friend)! I was so excited I forgot I was afraid. I would also like to extend my gratitude to Von and Jr for dragging me when I get tired from flapping and flipping. And for encouraging me not to be scared. :)
I can't tell you how much I wish to share you what I saw under water.  I'ts a different world down there. It's mesmerizing nad unbelievable. Actually my adjectives aren't enough. I made a mental note to invest on an underwater camera so I will be able to show you next time. ;)

As I told you, I'm beginning to like Orange! :)

It's snorkeling time! :)
 I can't describe how wonderful it is under water. I even asked myself why it took me 23years before trying this. I'm hoping that I could try this more often.

One scary thing about skinny dipping is the threat of jellyfish! Yes, you read it right. There's a lot of jellyfish roaming around and we should be cautious because their sting is really painful and sometimes deadly. Von and Ace can testify to that, because they've been stung, good thing we're nurses! lol!
TRIVIA: First aid on jellyfish sting. VINEGAR. Pour vinegar on the affected area .
P.S. That kid in red is the nine year old nephew of our boat man. I envy him for being such a good swimmer.

The girls? lol
L-R: Me, Leah, Real, Criselda and Annie. My teammates (except Rael) on the games that we played. We won on the charade. Beauty with brains indeed, but we lost on the balloon-catching-volleyball game. The boys cheated that's why they won . :p
(Forgive me for I don't have photos of the game, We're all having fun we forgot to take photos.)
Being the candid couple that we are. We can't afford to miss this photo op!
I was so proud of myself! lol. I was able to conquer my fear. And I enjoyed everything I saw. I'm glad that Jr's with me all the time. ♥

We were allowed to assemble our tents at 6pm, the boys built our tents. We only built 2 tents because we have to pay 200php per tent. It's like a rent on something. Sadly, we were not allowed to have a bonfire which disappointed me because I've been drooling on roasted marshmallows. :(
But everything went okay, we played games like charades, 7up and laughed the whole night.We decided to call it a night at around 11pm. Actually we almost got lost track of time because I think everyone's having a good time. We also needed to wake up early because our boat man will pick us at 7am. :)

Our second day started fine. We had a, as what I call instant breakfast meaning instant noodles and canned goods and I believe everyone got full. After packing our stuffs we made ourselves ready for the most anticipated island hopping! :p
Some islands are not fully developed, some has pristine sand, some has virgin forests and mostly possess an exhilarating view. and I thought how wonderful God is, for making this beautiful places for us to experience. Enchanting places cannot be created, they can only be discovered.

The morning of the second day. The sun rise was hypnotizing as well.

Saying goodbye to the Island that took care of us for the whole night. Till we meet again Quezon Island.

A view from the boat, we're ready to go island hopping! Yey!

Exhilarated, hyped and full charge! Off we go! :)
The Turtle Island, shaped like a turtle. Really. :)

The Cathedral Cave. It has this captivating view at the center.

Prepare yourself to be spell bound because the view is really enchanting.

From a far you wouldn't notice what island is this.

But when you get closer, you'll see these flying mammals hanging from every branch of every tree. It's creepy actually but fascinating as well.
At the Old Scout Island where we played some of the games. This time, the boys won. (because they cheated. lol). On my opinion, the Old Scout Island has the finest sand. (And don't tell anyone, I brought some sand home. TeeHee)

The rest of the Old Scout Island. Although the island isn't developed  there were a lot of people who went there to swim and bond with their families.

At the Cuenco Cave. Picture taking is the only thing you could do to the cave. It still  has this creepy vibe for me. And I saw traces of bats as well. Yikes!

With Rael again at the Cuenco Cave. :)

As I told you, I've saw traces of bats inside and I'm really scared of them, maybe that's the reason why I didn't like batman? lol.

Even with the creepiness we can't resist the photo op! :)

I can't come up with a good description so, I asked Mr. Google to help me out. here's what he got. :)
The islands (124 at low tide and 123 at high tide) are scattered along Lingayen Gulf and cover an area of 18.44 square kilometres (4,557 acres). They are believed to be about two million years old. Only three of them have been developed for tourists: Governor Island, Quezon Island, and Children's Island. The islands are actually ancient corals that extend well inland, in an area previously comprising the seabed of an ancient sea. Lowering sea levels have exposed them to the surface and the peculiar "mushroom"-like shapes of some of the islands have been caused by the eroding action of the ocean waves. (Thanks Wikipedea! lotsa love! Lol.)

One story that I will never forget to tell is the fact that I jump of a  4-5meter high cliff and landed straight on the water! Talk about over flowing adrenaline inside my body! I just can't tell you how scared I was. Actually everyone jumped of that cliff like structure. It's really scary. Jr and Annie did the same actually, in a much much higher platform, it's like 9-10 meters? Jr says it's like a two story building. It was literally breath taking. Leah and I was indecisive at first because we're really scared, but it surprised me when Leah suddenly jumped and being the competitive that I am, I counted to three, held my breath, pray and Splash! I had the time of my life! I'm trying to look for the video and photos but unfortunately I didn't find any. But I promise you I'll post it when I see it. Okay? You can't blame us because we can't bring a camera or any electronic gadget because after jumping of that cliff we have to swim for us to be able to get to the shore. And mind you, the moment when I reached the shore I was exhausted, but it was all okay, I won't forget what it felt or how it made me feel. :)    

It was my first time to bond with my boyfriend's friends and I had a great time, they are nice and they treated me well. This trip made me closer to Jr because I saw how he is with his friends and I must admit that he doesn't change, he still possess that same character. The character that I love. ♥
This trip also made me discover new things about myself, that I never thought I would be able to do. As I told you before, I'm scared of trying new things for I don't see comfort on adjusting and who would have thought that discovering new things will make you a better person for it enhance your personality and boost your confidence. :)
Each trip that we had is truly memorable and I'm so happy that I shared with JR most of the happiest days of my life. All in all, I just hope and pray that something like this can happen again, maybe with the same group of friends or family. Who knows what will happen next? Life, is I guess like the hundred island, there's a lot of island to discover, to explore and to appreciate. Just be sure you're armed with life's essentials and it wouldn't hurt if you have your loved ones on your side. :)
Hope you had a great time like I did!

Live life! Love more!

Love Lots,
