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.

Chance Meeting with Miss Maria Venus Raj

I've traveled to and from Legazpi through Cebu Pacific for several times already and I've never yet had a chance to be with a celebrity on the same flight! Well, this weekend I was lucky! I flew to the Legazpi last Saturday. Woke up really early because my flight was at 6a.m. The wait for the boarding announcement was boring and uneventful. Even the flight was the same. I just slept through it. When we were about to  disembark, the flight crew suddenly announced, "We would like to acknowledge the presence of Miss Universe Maria Venus Raj" Everyone was surprised, I was surprised and delighted because I really haven't seen her in person ever! It seemed she was seated at the forward part of the plane and though I tried to crane my neck as high as I could, I couldn't even catch a glimpse of her. So I just decided to wait at the arrival area. 

There was a welcoming committee for her waiting for her at the arrival area. I recognized the Bicol University President Madam Fay Lauraya together with other BU faculty standing beside the banner for Miss Venus Raj. After what seemed like a long wait, Miss Universe 4th Runner Up Maria Venus Raj finally stepped out of the plane. She's really tall and very slim! She was smiling as she walked to the arrival area. As expected there was a pictorial session. I was also able to take some shots, luckily my camera's battery still had a charge. Lots of people were able to take pictures with her, lucky for them. Miss Raj looks really beautiful and sweet. 

Here are some of the pictures I took with my cam. Enjoy!

One Invigorating Sunday

I know it's been a while since I updated this blog. I've been really busy. I went home home last weekend, well, I actually spent the whole week there since it was going to be a very long weekend for me anyway due to Eid El Fitr. Anyway, it was a good time for me because at least I was able to exercise...one thing that I haven't done in a long time.
Together with Mandy and some of the folks from church, we went to Kawa-Kawa in Ligao City. We woke up at 4.30am so that we can be there in time for the mass aerobics. The short climb to the peak left me out of breath, which shows just how out of shape I am;). Anyway, when we got to the peak, the aerobics exercise was already starting. There were lots of people participating - children, teens, adults of both sexes. We immediately joined in! Although I couldn't follow some of the steps, it was still so much fun and was able to sweat out some of my fats! Well, i hope so.

I'm so looking forwards to another hike up there! And also to the aerobics exercise. It's really much more motivating if you see other people exercising with you.
