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.

Just Words to Inspire

Have you ever experienced laughing so hard, but your laughter seemed like a hollow sound? You go about your daily tasks, but for what? There are times when you can hardly make it through the day. This is how I’ve been feeling lately. I guess I really need some inspiration. We all do at certain points in our lives, right?

I found this material on the net, somehow it helped me see more of life’s realities. There was no author but it’s not hard to imagine that the person who wrote this had gone through a lot in her/his life as well to be able to say all these realities. Read for yourself.


I BELIEVE

I believe- That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe- That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in awhile and, you must forgive them for that.

I believe-That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe- That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe- That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe- That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be
the last time you see them

I believe- That you can keep going long after you can't.

I believe- That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we
feel.

I believe- That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe-That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and therehad better be something else to take its place.

I believe- That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe- That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe- That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time!

I believe- That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe- That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I believe- That just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I believe- That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe- That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe- That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe- That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe- That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other, And justbecause they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

I believe- That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe- That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe- That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't
even know you.

I believe- That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I believe- That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human
being.

I believe- That the people you care about most in life are the essence of life.Tell them today how much you love them and what they mean to you.

Poetry: I Still Think Of You

MY SHELTER AND MY FRIEND

MY SHELTER AND MY FRIEND
April 4, 2009

In moments of doubts and fears
In times of sorrow and tears
You never let go of my hand
You give me the strength to stand

When defeat overwhelms me
Boundless grace You give for free
You make me feel a winner
And everything seems brighter

Though I stumble over and over again
And all I ever do is cause you pain
You still won’t let me go on my own
You always take my hand and lead me home

You never get tired of waiting for me
When your truth I just don’t seem to see
Patiently, with arums wide open to receive
You wait ‘til once again I come to believe

All the things you’ve done and all you will do
With all my heart and soul I thank you
Never have I found a friend like you
Someone whose love is so pure and true

And I pray you’ll never let me go
May your love in me forever flow
Please stay at my side ‘til the end
Always be my Shelter and my Friend.
