Travel Journal: Davao

A 7-8-hour road trip may sound impossible for me but I made it! Exploring Davao has never been on my bucket list but visiting the city was quite a remarkable one, all thanks to Jason’s family. We departed around 3:20 in the morning (I checked my watch :P) and I was half-asleep the entire ride.

We made a short stop at Valencia Bukidnon, Jollibee and had coffee and hot choco but we didn’t have our breakfast there since Jason’s aunt packed our breakfast the night before our trip and we had it at BuDa (Bukidnon-Davao) with a breathtaking view right in front of us.

Sea of clouds, baby!

I’m always pretty sure that I won’t have a chance to witness a sea of cloud since I’m not good with trekking or mountain climbing because of my poor health but at least, this trip made one of my wildest dreams come true.

Food Journal: Bingsoo Corner

Anime, Manga and K-Dramas! I can spend all day talking about these with my best-otaku-friends, Desiree and Eli and we’ve been doing it since high school. And last Saturday, August 5, 2017, we had a reunion and spend time on chikas, food trip and window shopping~

We met at my new favorite cafe at SM Downtown Premier, Bingsoo Corner. It is the very first Korean Dessert Cafe in Cagayan de Oro and of course, it is a perfect place for Korean Drama lovers like us. They serve Korean shaved ice dessert with sweet toppings which is popularly called as Patbingsu or Bingsu.

Of course, we had a bunch of selfies and chikas. We talked about the latest Korean Dramas and anime we watched and recent mangas that we read while waiting for our order. Eli’s the one in yellow and the latter is Desiree. As I’ve mentioned, we’ve been friends since high school and the three of us loves anime so much. I remembered, we went to Cogon years ago just to shop for DVDs. Ha! Ha! I really spent a lot just for my addiction, yes.

Life Journal: Our 7th Anniversary

“Is he sweet?” It was a question I never thought I could ever hear that’s why I never thought of sugar-coating my answer as I simply said NO.

I’ve always posted about our travels and some food excursions but I never talked about our love story here on my blog. Not even about who he is except for his name. LOL! So, this guy, Jason is the first (and I pray the last) guy I ever dated and yes, I also went to the praning stage where I won’t stop texting him and I get mad whenever he won’t reply and I also get furious whenever his computer games got more attention from him than I. But that was years ago, why? It’s simple, I got tired. Getting tired doesn’t mean I fell out of love but because I got tired being infuriated over petty things that obviously lead to fights. Few years later, we still do fight a lot but it doesn’t get to the point where I’d cry myself to sleep and regret the next day because of my puffy eyes. Ha! Ha! We just fought over where to have lunch or because I get too irritated easily (maybe because I was hungry or PMSing). There are times that he’ll just ignore my rants but there are few moments where he’ll rant in return which would irritate me even more. Oh my, what a crazy muggle am I?

Back to the question if he is sweet, I thought he really isn’t. He’s a funny guy who would laugh at you whenever you miss a step at the stairs before helping you get back up. He doesn’t know how to comfort you whenever you get sad because he’ll just teach you (he’s a teacher BTW) how you should’ve handled things instead of getting more problems by crying. He’s that kind of guy. At first, the inner child within me burst into anger because I feel like he doesn’t care at all but later on, I’ve realized that his way of showing affection is far more different to what I’ve seen on movies and what I’ve read on novels or manga. He’s the best friend who would make you laugh whenever the atmosphere gets gloomy or whenever he just feels like it and he’s the partner who would just pat you at the back and you know you already got some back up whatever battle you’re facing.

Last July 27, we celebrated our 7th year together. Yes, we’ve dated so long already and a lot of people are already asking when we’ll get married. Well honestly, both of us don’t know because we don’t have savings. We don’t have a house, not even a car. We’re just living life like it’s ours. And I don’t know where were headed. But still… we’re living. What a carefree way to say it. But yeah.

We first went to the Bishop’s House near the Saint Augustine Metropolitan Cathedral to visit my uncle who’s a priest as he asked us some errands to do.

We didn’t take our time there for so long as my uncle was having a meeting at that time so we went to SM CDO Downtown Premiere earlier from what we’ve planned so we watched not a love story nor a horror movie but our much awaited favorite, Cars 3. We we’re supposed to watch it on the second screening but because we arrived earlier, we’re able to watch it on the first.

Travel Journal: Bohol

It’s good to be back! Not that my cell phone has gone mad again for me not to blog but I don’t have anything to write at all. Actually, I am feeling really lucky nowadays. My 2017 is going smoothly so far and I hope it’ll last for a long time. I already bought a laptop for me to work and write easier, jeez finally! If I just really save up, I can come up with something. Same goes for travelling, if I earn enough, I could travel enough and Bohol is the first for this year and this time, I am going with Jason’s family.

We departed via Lite Ferries at 10PM last March 24 and arrived at the Port of Jagna before 5 in the morning of the next day. We didn’t get off the ferry right away since the van which would tour us will arrive at 7.

Witness sunrise inside the ferry.

Someone didn’t get a good sleep with the waves.

Baby-sitting Abby.

We got off at 6 for us to go sight-seeing around the pier first and buy Kalamay, a sticky and sweet delicacy which is famous in Bohol.

Life Journal: Del Carmen Beach and Swimming Pool

Ola! 2017 has been really very good to me. Even if it’s still the first month of the year, I’m already having lots of fun. Not mentioning my week long of sore throat and asthma, it’s still great!

I’ve been invited by Jason’s family on their outing for his uncle’s birthday and I’m actually really excited since it has been a while since I went to the beach and it’s my first time going to Del Carmen Beach and Swimming Pool as well. Jason always told me that the resort was pretty cool since it has lots of adrenaline rides to offer. I may be a scaredy-cat but once I’m on it already, I get so thrilled and brave so suddenly.

So, the day started after I finished my shift at 7 in the morning. I actually slept at 3AM *ssshh* since it wasn’t the peak hour and day for my work at all. Jason woke me up at 6 and because I was fairly excited, I woke up without hesitation LOL. We went to 7 Eleven first to have breakfast and wait for their van from Lapasan (where his relatives lives) to arrive.

Del Carmen Beach and Swimming Pool was located at Kauswagan, Lagonglong, Misamis Oriental. To be specific, it is five Mulicipalities away from us. However, we arrived at the resort for just a short time considering it’s Sunday with less traffic.

This what welcomed us when we arrived.

There was a slide, an iceberg and more stuffs but what really caught my attention was the slide even though I am pretty coward on pool slides 😂
