Simala Church| Located at Sibonga, Cebu lies this popular castle-like church — Simala Church, also known as Monastery of the Holy Eucharist. The church has been established by the Marian monks lead by Fra. Martin, from Pampanga who were sent on mission through the intercession of Mother Mary to Cebu.

Playa La Caleta – A Glamping Paradise
Third week is freedom! As for us, this is the only week we can relax after a stressful closing of the books. And so, we had our quick escape from numbers and sleepless nights. Went to a beach not too crowded but not too far, where we can pitch tents, sleep on hammocks (or even on the sand!), swim until pitch dark, and drink until we hold onto the fine grains of sand trying to avoid falling off the earth.

One novice asked me, “What is your spirituality? Was it St. John’s or St. Therese’s…?” I answered with a laugh, then saying I don’t know anything about it.

What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important. – Dwight Eisenhower
Imagine this scenario: We wake up each day, prepare ourselves at work, feeling drained even though it is just the start of the week. We have a long list to do. All tasks seems so important and due at the same time we don’t know where, or how to start. It is not hard to imagine right? Cause we’ve all been there, yes. I know the feeling guys. Continue reading How To Decide on What’s Urgent & Important Using Eisenhower’s Matrix
Last week, I took a pause with my #weeklyblogchallenge to write about my sidetrip to Northern Blossoms Flower Farm in Benguet. Now, I’m back to start the challenge again. My topic for this blog post? Filipino exotic food! 😊 Game.
So, let’s talk about food. Filipinos love to eat. In every occasion, there will always be food. And there’s always an occasion to celebrate. But what about the weirdest, scariest and less-appetizing food? Would you dare to try? Continue reading Filipino Exotic Foods I Dare You to Try
While classifying invoices at work this day, I come across an item I have no idea about — salt spreader.
So I asked one of my counterpart in Europe what the heck it is. He said it is an equipment to spread salt on the ground, so ice/snow would melt, to prevent people from slipping. Continue reading Something I Learned Because It Doesn’t Snow in the Philippines
After being a blogger who doesn’t write for over three years, just writing during my “inspired moments”, and sulking into depression for almost a year, I finally had the courage to step out of the darkness I’m accustomed to. And into the light, I go. Yay!
