Summer Getaway at Pinamuntugan Island

Pinamuntugan Island has very light sand, though it's not white. But the water is bluish-green. When we were swimming the current was quite strong in some parts that we were being tossed in the water like dolls.

The Breathtaking Aguirangan Island

It took my breath away! Its 1.5-hectare formation with white beach and crystal clear waters was so beautiful!

Have you ever seen a jellyfish up close? I have. I think it's one of the most beautiful creatures of the sea.

Travel Musings

Lately, I’ve been thinking about traveling to another place. I have itchy feet, yet I don’t have the guts to just let them lead me wherever. Traveling alone is not my cup of tea. Guess I’m not brave enough to go traipsing around the globe alone. It would be more enjoyable if I have a companion. This way I would not be nervous in finding accommodation where we can be safe. Since we’ll be hailing from the Philippines, we must first have a Philippines accommodation to stay while waiting for our flight date.

First stop would be Thailand where numerous cheap Thailand hotels can be found. Though they are cheap in price, they must be safe and have all the conveniences. But if we can’t find one, I have some friends there where we can stay for a few days. Thailand and Malaysia are just neighboring countries, so it would be a shame if we don’t take time to visit the place. I especially want to see Kuala Lumpur which is the capital and largest city of Malaysia. It is a great urban jungle that you’d get lost in it if you’re not familiar with the place. After that, we’ll fly to China. Maybe at this time of year it will be hard to find last minute China hotels because of the upcoming Olympic Games. For sure plenty of tourists will be swarming about the country to witness this great event.

Oh well, all these are just musings for the meantime anyway.

Another Year Older

Today is the 22nd of June. What is the significance of this day? Well, today is the day I turn 26. I'm really getting older... This birthday is not the best of birthdays. Bad luck is on my side. Just four days ago, we received bad news from the office...RETRENCHMENT. If you are my former officemate and you are reading this, you know what I'm talking about. It just came right out of the blue; all of us were reeling from the shock of it all. Don't worry I'm recovering from it now. I'm trying to look on the positive side,that maybe there's a much better opportunity for me out there that is why it happened.

Aside from that bad news, this weekend was also a not-so-happy one. I was so looking forward to this weekend because we were going to celebrate our birthday. My cousin June (Yagz) and I the same birthday - June 22, and my niece Golda - June 23. Last year we also celebrated our birthdays together and we had the same plan for this year. And my boyfriend Ryann was supposed to come for the celebration, unfortunately due to typhoon Frank he was not able to. There was no trip from Catanduanes since Friday morning. I was really disappointed...
Birthday girls
But anyway, we still had a bit of get together last night. I cooked yummy pasta, they bought chicken and lots of junk foods. We spent the night eating and singing. Good thing Mandy brought the videoke over, so we had some fun. There was me, Yagz, Apol, Gold, Mandy, Jenny, Ryan, Daryl, and Kuya Joey. But it could have been happier if my Ryann was there...but he called me up, so it was good.

Well, that's it. I'm now 26. What would this year bring me?

I Stepped On My Eyeglasses

I broke my eyeglasses! It happened by accident. Last Saturday night I had this blinding headache again. I thought I'd wash my face so that my head would be cooled as well. Then I went inside the bathroom, removed my eyeglasses and placed them on the floor by the door. So, I proceeded. Maybe it was because of the headache and the fact that I had a lot of things of my mind that when I got up and stepped out, I just heard this loud cracking noise!!! My eyeglasses!!! I really stepped on them and when I looked down, my poor eyeglasses lay there in ruins.
One lens was knocked off from the frame, but unbroken. The other was still intact. When I tried them on, well the frame was way too loose. It was totally useless. My headache was aggravated because I didn't have my glasses on!

The next day I went to Legazpi Eye Center to have my glasses fixed. Once there, I decided to just buy a new one instead. Anyway, my broken eyewear is already 4 years old.
