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!

Jelly Fish: The Rarely Seen Beauty Under the Sea

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

Something Nice to Read

I have another inspirational piece that I'd like to share. This one is also from another Bluemountain poster that I have at home. Yup, you can guess it right. It is also one of those things I bought back in college. I have it hanging on the side of my cabinet. I encoded the content and put new background. I'm not so sure if the background's good though, and if the words are still readable.

Here it is. Hope you find it a good read.

A Precious Book Mark

If you read my previous blogs I wrote there that I rummaged through my things and found some mementos that had sentimental value to me. I also found a Bluemountain bookmark that I bought when i was just in college. Do you know, I've forgotten already that I used to collect bookmarks? Yeah I do collect them. I have several of them at home. I particularly like bookmarks with nice quotes or poems written on them. This particular Bluemountain bookmark I found among my things is really nice. I wanted to share it with my friends that is why I encoded it in word then added a nice background. The background I used here is a picture of a view taken in Tagaytay.

If you read this, I hope you like it too. ;-)

Vision Correction Through LASIK

I have been wearing eye glasses since I was in my second year in High School. I had my eyes checked because I had blurred vision and kept having headaches. According to the ophthalmologist that tested me, there was a muscle in my eyes that did not develop. In short, the only thing to do was to wear eye glasses, unless I had the money for laser surgery. Laser surgery was not an option then, but it can be now. The LASIK information I’ve read makes me think that laser eye correction is now one of the best options for bringing back 20/20 vision. Maybe this can be a viable option for me as well.

Developers of LASIK made things even better with the new iLASIK. Are you aware of this iLASIK Procedure? Well, this is the modern version of the LASIK corrective vision procedure. iLASIK has been proven by the Department of Defense and NASA confirmed that the LASIK technology used today is safe and very effective. The modern iLASIK is different from the LASIK because the former uses two lasers in correcting eye defects. The first laser maps out the eyes and makes an incision in the cornea. Once the corneal flap is already created, another wave-front mapping data directs the second laser. This second laser is the one that corrects the vision.

Many people have already benefited from LASIK technology. In fact those that are in the military have had their 20/20 vision restored through it. The benefits of this technology just keeps spreading by word of mouth as naval aviators tell their peers of the great advantage the iLASIK procedure has given them. How I envy their 20/20 vision! I’ve always had qualms about eye corrections through laser, but if it’s iLASIK I think I’ll feel secure.

Staring Right At You

I've always been amazed by foreigners' eyes. When I was a child I used to wish I had gray eyes. Gray and green-colored eyes fascinate me a lot. And I was also influenced by the paperbacks I read back then. The ones authored by Barbra Cartland had great descriptions about gray and green eyes. Her descriptions of the heroine's eyes just make them come alive, that you can almost see them staring right back at you.

That was then, and I'm all grown now. However, my fascination for colored eyes hasn't left me. I think I'd look so much better if I had gray or green eyes. Colored contact lenses would make that possible. When I came back home a few weeks ago I purchased a new pair of contact lenses. But, instead of going for green or gray, I opted for hazel, or brown if you will. That time I bought it, the only colors available were gray and hazel. I tried on both and the lady assisting me said both colors look good on me. But the gray one looked obviosuly fake and the hazel looked natural so, I bought the latter. Maybe next time I'll buy the gray one. Anyway, the contacts I bought make my eyes look more alive that's why I like it too.

Here's a picture of my hazel-colored eyes...

Yes, I'm staring right at you...

What can you say?

Just A Recap

I was able to go home on the last weekend of September. After work that Friday, I immediately proceeded to Cubao where my friend, Mandy, was waiting for me. I decided to just take the ordinary bus for my trip. It was my first time to take the ordinary bus so, I asked my friend to help me choose which one would be most secure. We had a hard time choosing because most of the seats at the front were already occupied. I definitely did not want to sit at the back, not only is it uncomfortable, it's also not safe since most of the people sitting there were males. Finally, we settled on the Elavil bus. It's a good thing too because my seat mate was a female. It was hard to sleep during the trip, but I was also able to nap every now and then. I noticed that ordinary buses had so many stopovers, but despite that we were able to reach Guinobatan pretty early.

It felt good to be home. I missed our house, my room, my bed. And it was good to see my Ma, my siblings and their families. I planned on taking them out for lunch in Legazpi on Sunday, but my Ma said it would just be better if we buy stuff and cook them at home. So, that's what we did. We ate outside the house during lunch, under the Bignay tree with fresh air around us. Too bad I did not take pictures of that day...

During my visit there I had some time to rummage through my things, throw out what I did n't need anymore and kept those that had so much sentimental value to me. I tried looking for the notebook that contained poetry pieces but I couldn't find it. Then I remembered, I lent it to my neice, Apol. I just texted her and told her to make she does't lose it.

Time flew so fast, ad then it was again time to come back here in Manila. I took the plane. By the way, it was my first plane ride. Since it was my first time to ride in the skies, I took pictures of the clouds that were close enough to touch. It's wonderful to be up there, looking down on all creation. But not all sights were good to eyes. When we were near Manila already, the view changed. Instead of green meadows, all I could see were buildings stuck so close together...

Here are some pictures of my plane ride and other views from the top.
