Final words before 2012 ends.

Camotes Island. my pursuit of happiness.

This is my final piece (on my last day) before I leave the company. It's a bitter-sweet moment I should say. I'm finally free but it entails leaving a company I fell in love with for 3 years. But like what our company slogan, I've got to 'make it happen'. There's no better time than now.

My outlook for 2013 is full of hope and dreams. I hope my plans fall into place. If not, well, I'll have to pick up the pieces and jump back again.
'Coz I'm resilient, like that.
Ayt, enough with the chit-chat.

'Whacky Holidays' y'all!

This is the first Christmas I've been away from my little boy, not because I'm overseas or anything but because I thought the world would really end, and that it would be best that they are with my in-laws while I'm at the office waiting for the first meteor to hit our building. But look do we have here, no great flood nor major earthquake Mayans. Puft. Not that I'm not thankful that it didn't really happen but it brought a shitload of worry to me. P*+ah! Anyhoo Scooby Doo, I'm glad that's over which means, we can all move on with our lives.

Happy Holidays

Camotes Island: Must-knows, FYIs, etc

Camotes Island is a group of islands located east of mainland (Cebu). It's composed of 4 islands - Poro, Pacijan, Ponson and Tulang. Ironically, Camotes doesn't have kamote or sweet potato as its abundant delicacy, instead, it boasts of to-die-for beach fronts, rich marine ecosystem and fresh cool air.
These islands, though a bit far from the mainland, is not as backward as you think. Many are the international awards they have received because of local's active community involvement. As a Cebuano and Filipino, that's something to be proud of.  

Eat and Smile at Cafe Egao

You'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile. ― Charles Chaplin

A smile can go a long way. It can make or break someone's day. It can dictate the mood of a person, at the same time, affect the other person through the interaction. And Cafe Egao's all about that.

Guimaras: the good, the bad and the ugly side of Alubihod

Parang sea turtle lang, ang laki ng shell. lol
We finally finished our island tour. Though we had so much more spots in mind, it seems like time was not on our side. It was almost dusk. Looking back, we had such a great time contemplating at  Trappist Monastery and Balaan Bukid, munching on oh-so-sweet mangoes, and getting amazed by the history and vista view at Guisi Lighthouse.

Alubihod Beach. Sunset.
It was almost dark when we arrived at Alubihon Cove Resort. We decided to take a quick dip before the sun finally went on a slumber. It was not as impressive as I expected it to be because the sunset was not advantageous to our location. Nonetheless, the sky looked like a play of colors vibrant enough for us to be amazed.
