Health Fitness Junkie

NOT! haha!

I was just trying to take a break from my sedentary lifestyle and decided to join the Fun Run early this morning. 
The start/finish line is situated just outside The Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu. 
With people anxiously waiting for the Go signal, I couldn't help but feel really excited!
It's my first time kaya.. . ;p

Done with the 5K for almost an hour. ..
I couldn't wait to eat breakfast! I was starving sooo bad! HAHA

Legs and feet hurt a lot. .. 
Can't wait for the next Fun Run! 
Don't get me wrong, I'm not making this activity permanent. 
 You know me, I'm too lazy... HAHA

Back to work tomorrow.

I ♥ Negros Oriental

8 Reasons Why I Adore Negros Oriental

1. Dumaguete City

One of my bucketlists includes a trip to Negros Oriental. Wish granted and I was able to venture out in the beautiful city of Dumaguete. I love how the city appears relatively small and convenient. It's like a miniature of Cebu. I love it! ;)

2. The Boulevard


 ◘ The vast stretch of the boulevard is such an amazing sight experience. It also fascinates me the fact that the locals never fail to lounge about the area despite the expanding new establishments around the location. Families do picnics, tourists enjoy taking snapshots, kabarkadas hang out and devour in tempurahans and etc.

3. The People

Dumaguete City is nicknamed The City of Gentle People. I was not certain of what their title really meant because as what I have observed, they don’t speak or act in an amiable manner. But there were significant ones who showed us pleasing personalities. The Manong in charge of the bangka ride to Apo Island was firm and strict regarding their policy of the number of people occupying in the big boat. The big boat’s accommodation is only limited to 8 persons. We were exactly 8 people and there were still 2 friends of ours who will be coming over in a short while. Manong promised he will take care of the other two so, off we go. And he really did. He offered our fellows a small bangka ride and only charged 300 per head. Thank you Manong. After our escapade at Apo Island, we made our way to the main road of Zamboangita to take a journey back home. We realized it’ll take us a while to find a ride. We were keeping our hopes high as we made gestures to passing vehicles to let us hitch a ride. After a few unfortunate attempts, a family car pulled over and offered us a drive back to the city. That was one of the sweetest travels ever. ;)

4. Geographical Wonders

We spent our first day wandering around the remote part of the city. We stopped by the "Smokin' Rock" like literally, it's a marvelous rock formation that emits an awful scent in the inferior part and it's water is boiling hot. It was my very first time to witness something like that. I was awed even though I was clueless as to what might have been the scientific explanation behind it. Oh well, amazing as it is, that's how nature works right.

Smokin' Rock!

As we went along further, we finally reached our destination to the Pulang Bato Falls. Again, like literally, the large rocks behind the waterfalls appear rust in hue and the water tasted like iron. We couldn't care less about it's odd appearance we just pursued and jumped in the cool water. We even payed a number of people's attention. If we were not mistaken, they were discreetly taking a video of us. haha!! assuming. We were rationalizing maybe it's their first time to see ladies in bikinis or their first time to see people swimming in a water with a questionably safety issue. The hell we care.

5. Low-Budget Food

I find it amazing the fact that the city is surrounded with the fanciest restaurants yet it offers reasonable prices on their meals. We were inquisitive enough to try out a few of their dining places. I loved Cafe Antonio! We stopped by there to grab some late afternoon snacks and I got overwhelmed of the costs of their food so I ordered a few. At night, they have this place where in people hang out and chill with booze, great music and good food at the same time. The place is called Hayahay. It was "hayahay" indeed because it was situated at the seaside and the cool sea breeze just makes the night even more interesting. There's more to that. Who could miss trying out the city's SYLVANNAS! This mouth watering dessert will keep you craving for more bite after bite. Although I am not much of a sweet tooth, it definitely leveled up my sweet tolerance.

6. Dolphins
Oh yes! This was one of the most magical moments during the trip. On our way to Apo Island, we were greeted by a herd of dolphins! This was my very first time to see dolphins swimming along our pumpboat this close! See that ? ?? It was sooo breathtaking! I wish I was crazy enough to jump in the water to join with them. Like seriously. ;)

7. Apo Island
◘ This would definitely be the highlight of the trip. If you're a nature lover, then this is the place to be! Acclaimed as one of the best dive spots in the Philippines, Apo Island boasts its rich and blossoming marine sanctuary and the breathtaking view of the sun, sand and sea. It may not be the usual sugary white sand beach however it's magnificent build of the rock formation makes the island extra special. I am so going back there. ;)

Snorkeling in the Fish Sanctuary.

I missed documenting the Turtle Sanctuary. boohoo.

8. DDGs
◘ What better way to spend an awesome trip with the best company in the world.?. . . Yes, the DDGs, as what we fondly call ourselves will always be the best travel buddies.. .

To more adventures my girlies..



Million thanks to the Opsimas for the good lovin' and shelter support! HAHA ;)

Babae Po Ako

A random day a few years ago.

* Making my way to the main road as I passed through a crowded area. Met 2 little kids along the way, a girl and a boy.

Girl: " Ka gwapa nimo ate oie "
Boy: " Nge! bayot man nah! "

Bed Unmade

Hands hold. Side by side.
Warmth felt right.
Parted lips puckers up. Gentle soft kiss.
Slowly greets dark little heaven.
Enters in a state of reverie.
Electrified to the other end of the digits.
Explosions. The earth is moving.
Releases to the sky. Infinity.
Meets his lovely gaze.
Sweet symphony of two hearts that beat as one.

We resemble.
We get that a lot from people.

They say it' s meant to be.

I say it's enjoying each other's company.

No matter the distance.
No matter the issues.
Let's not keep things ideal.
It'll only make things worse.
Dwell on the present. Bury the past.

Coz we've got a long way to go. ..

Hum Along

The 90's will always be my favorite era. Not just for the nostalgic memories of my childhood days but also for the stellar talent and great music the artists contributed to the world. I will always be a big fan of old skool tracks. \m/

Letters To You

Dear Ex-Girlfriend

You may never get the chance to read this but I find it essential to write. I would have preferred to talk to you a long time ago but it seemed circumstances did not allow us to do so. First, thank you for being part of his life. If it weren't for you, he wouldn't be a special part of me today. ;)
Please pay attention to what I am going to tell you in the next few lines of this letter. I firmly believe that past lovers should remain friends. I have no problem with that. But there's this one time that made me doubt my trust in you. I did not appreciate the fact that you constantly sent him invitations without a consent from me. I let it slide at first but I became more upset when you sent him a specific suspicious invitation through SMS. From then on, it was marked in my mind that you could never be trusted. I was pondering if you were leading him on. The fact that you were continually texting/calling him made me conclude you were not totally over him. That's the issue I wanted to settle. Were my assumptions true? I just wanted to clear matters with you. I hope that you were aware he's already with me and we rock each other's world. I hope you respect that.
After the moment he spoke to you months ago, we have not heard from you since then. It didn't mean you guys should stop talking with each other when my concern was just the invitations without my knowledge. However, I greatly appreciated the fact that you respected his decision.
Honestly, I wanted to be good friends with you. I know we have a lot in common and I even wanted to ask you few things about him. It may not happen this time round though, but I hope someday when we bump into each other you will not hesitate to smile and wave back perhaps. ;)

Labor Day Weekend

I have gone to Bohol a lot of times already but I haven't really reached to the places I wanted to pursue due to personal reasons. Last Labor Day weekend, I finally had the chance to venture out to some of the most coveted tourist destinations in Bohol. ..

Danao, Bohol is definitely one of the coolest adventure spots in the Philippines. They offer exhilarating activities such as ziplining, sky ride, river trekking, suislide, kayaking, caving, the plunge (similar to bungee jumping), etc. If you love the outdoors and you have insatiable thirst for adventure, this place is definitely your cup of tea!
to visit their site, click here.

The day after, we went to visit Balicasag Island. It's an hour-motorized-boat-ride from Panglao Island. Hailed as one of the best dive spots in the world, it vaunts its flourishing fish sanctuary and breathtaking scenery of the sun, sand and sea. Definitely an ideal place for nature lovers like me. ;)

gone snorkeling and met some new friends underwater! ;)

Our last stop was in Virgin Island, a hidden paradise few kilometers off the shore of Panglao, Bohol. The marvelous stretch of the crescent shaped sand bar was definitely a pleasant sight experience! We get to walk through the placid waters and giggled as our feet sunk softly in the crystal white sand.

* Sigh* It was sad going back home to reality after our spontaneous trip to the island.
But I'm definitely going back for more. Still a lot more places to go in Bohol in my bucket list! ;)
