Milestones

Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Last September, my grandmother celebrated her 75th birthday at Makati Shang. A few relatives from the States arrived to celebrate her birthday with her and I think that it was really a nice gesture. I was host for the night, along with my brother and my cousin but they didn't really "host" with me. They kept on leaving my side because I don't think they're comfortable with it. I wasn't too, but I wanted to learn/practice hosting. Not that I have plans on having that as career; I just really wanted to see if I could.

My grandmother is the best in the world and I'm not saying that because she is my grandma. I'm saying it because she is the type of grandma you see in movies: the cool one, the one who knows and haves everything, your partner in crime and the like. I grew up knowing she'd do everything and give everything to me. I always knew I wasn't her favorite among us three, but I still felt loved. The things I know about my grandma are only 1/8 of her whole amazing personality. During the party, I found out about a lot of things about her that made me more proud of her than I already am.

At 75, my grandmother
  • looks 10 years younger than her high school friends who came
  • is so much prettier than all her friends/cousins/etc
  • as energetic as a 60-yr old woman
  • as nice as a young mom
  • as sweet as a wife
  • as perfect as the sun
I love everything about my grandmother and that night was super duper fun. Here are two photos from the party. I'll probably be posting another entry only for photos since I do not have the official photos yet.





March to a Different Beat

Thursday, November 3, 2011
Way back College Week at Miriam, I joined an inspirational talk. It's a required activity, but I had the interest on attending. I forgot the speaker's name, but the lessons he taught are still with me. His life story is as amazing as his lessons, and I salute him for being able to stand up tall, accept the tragedy of his life and praise God no matter what.

The most important lesson I've learned from him is to do the big things before doing the small things. It's simple. Just imagine a bowl, a big rock, a small rock and sand. If you put the sand first, you won't be able to fit the rocks. If you put the small rock first, you won't be able to fit the big rock and the sand. And finally, if you put the big rock first, that's the only way you could fit everything. In life, let us put God first. He is the biggest and the greatest of all. When we put Him first, everything else will follow. Have faith.

Xocolat

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

I've been wanting to blog about this drink for months now but I only had the chance to transfer the photo now so...

This is Hot Xoco from Xocolat (Katipunan). My brother was the first one who ordered this and when his order came, I was just....WOW. I haven't been to all places yet but this hot chocolate is one of the most innovative products I've seen and tried. You should try this too. It costs P145 - not so bad for its taste. It's really great. Two thumbs up!

Time After Time

Friday, August 19, 2011
I've been very busy with lots of things but most of the time, I'm just too lazy to compose a blog. I just changed my theme again so I'm a bit inspired to update. Although this entry might be gibberish, to me, it'd matter.

Last Sunday, we had this Service Learning in Theology. We went to a relocation site (Southville C, Montalban Rizal). I wasn't able to reach my expectations, but I am happy I got to spend time with them.



On Sunday, we'll be going back but that would be the last time. I hope that this Sunday, I'd be able to make more children happy. I want to share more. 

BlogBerry

Thursday, June 23, 2011
From now on, every time I'm going to blog about my phone, it's gonna be entitled BlogBerry. Okay, Stradmore people! I know you own the word, I am just borrowing it.

Anyway, I just wanted to update my blog about the BB Social that I couldn't use for a week -- IT'S OKAY NOW!! I am ecstatic. After a week of losing hope, sadness and insecurity.... FINALLY! I had it exchanged last Saturday and didn't leave the shop until it worked. Whew, patience is truly a virtue.

White Water Rafting Pt.1

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

White Water Rafting is a challenging recreational outdoor activity using an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other bodies of river. This is usually done on white water or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill raft passengers. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid-1970s. It is considered an extreme sport, as it can be dangerous.

When my mom first mentioned that we were going to Mindanao (Butuan, in particular) to visit my grandfather (dad's dad), I felt really excited because I haven't been there for 12 years. To my surprise, my mom told me that we were heading to Cagayan de Oro too to do an exciting activity: white water rafting. I didn't have an idea at first so I searched for photos on the internet but still, I didn't know what to expect. I am one lucky girl to have finally experienced white water rafting last Dec. 28, 2010. When that special day finally came and I finally saw the course we were about to take, OH MY GOSH. I couldn't wait. The guides told us there were 24 major rapids on the river and a few minor rapids. ~!@#$%^&*()_+ EXCITEMENT ALL THE WAY.

After 4 amazing hours, the activity sadly came to an end. I have exciting photos of the whole thing but I have to wait for my mom because I used her camera. I also used a waterproof disposable camera so I have to have it developed pa and converted and all so this blog entry is just an introduction! :)

Btw, the photo above is taken by me 
and I used my dslr.
There was a 10-minute break for all to eat crackers
or drink liquids.
That is I think halfway of the whole course.
