Miagao Escapades 2017*

For most of us, holy week is a time to stay at home and fast. It’s a time to pray and celebrate the death and resurrection of God. While most of the Filipinos are tied by their religious duties, me and my friends decided to go out in the open and celebrate God’s love in…

San Remigio, Antique

I never thought that there is a strawberry farm here in Panay. I know that it is not a local fruit that’s why I only associate it with Baguio which is the coolest place here in the tropical country of the Philippines. I said I never thought about it, but it exists. It’s here. It…

A step I can’t take back

For every day of my life, as far as I can remember, I always spend my nights thinking about the choices I made and the choices I’m about to make. I also spend my nights criticizing myself for my mistakes and commending myself for the things I think I did good. It has always been…

On being (almost) 25

This year, I am turning 25 years old. If I am lucky enough to reach the age of ย 100 (I think I am. LOL), then this year, I have already spent a quarter of it. I don’t know the demands of reaching that age, but for me this year is going to be a tough…

Closing time

I never thought that 2017 would come in a flash. It’s like yesterday when I was a freshman in law school and I didn’t know what to do. I was lost. It’s my first and a halfย month of being a graduate, first month of being an employee, and first day of being a student and…

Random drives

I’ve been back on track for a while now. Even though my knee hurts at times (please heal soon), I’ve been trying to run again with my classmates who are more than eager to lose the weight and get through boredom. So last week, after our run, a thought came and I suggested that we…

Garin Farm Pilgrimage

I went there twice. It was situated in San Joaquin, Iloilo and of the two times that I went there, I was in Miagao so the travel was short. It was just a good 10 to 15 minutes ride from Miagao plaza to the crossing towards the farm. I took the bus and when I…

Compre feels

Since I took a leave of absence from work last November 14, 2016, I was not able to use a desktop computer. That’s the reason why I have not posted anything- what I feel, my travels, what I want this Christmas. Besides, I am taking my comprehensive examinations now. This coming December 11 is my…

The girl has a name

You know how I don’t usually use my real name in social media, well, that’s because I don’t really know my real name. I mean, of course I know my real name but I don’t like it. Its not because it’s not nice, but because it’s not real. So thank you Philippine judicial system for…

Four years

Yesterday, we were playing volleyball when a freshman asked me, “Nang fourth year ka na?” I said, “Huo.” And she replied, “Wow, congrats.” I told her that one day she will become fourth year too. However, she asked me again, “Fourth year kamo di tanan?” and I said, “Indi ah, kami lang duwa (referring to…

Siraan Hotspring x Nogas Island

My friends – Mayek and Pau – got married last July 9, 2016. I was the maid of honor and all went well, particularly the part where they decided to go to Siraan Hotspring and Nogas Island the next day. I was so excited because I’ve been wanting to go there for quite some time….

24th Birthday

Last June 19, 2016,ย I woke up and I’m already 24 years old. Waking up to an additional year in my life only means that I am still good at this ‘survival thing’ despite the fact that I’ve been to different places and different phases for the past years. When I was young, I used to…
