Missing Misibis Bay, Albay

Being thrown into the pool as part of the NIVEA summer tradition and a lot more! It was my first NIVEA summer event and had a summer rush doing these adrenaline-filled activities under the sun like ziplining and walking on air which I all did for the first time!

Just Ride

Ever since I was a kid, I loved riding literally and figuratively. I think when you’re too young, you don’t think too much and you just go with whatever it is that comes along the way.

ut as we grow old, there are certain things that we think about – like acceptance, identity – that let us hinder experiencing life, being ourselves with people. We just go near to the wall, observe, think and understand everyone, not knowing that like flowers, we are meant to be seen and recognized. For quite a long time, I must admit, I was a wallflower.

But not now.
This is not a formal review of the movie that made me realize this or a comprehensive story of my life, and love, but more of a short reflection. haha Not much of a college reflection type (if basing on format!). But aside from the coming-of-age-kind-of movie which we all can always relate to in terms of identity, freedom, love, life, which i will not spoil, it also tells so much about the way we view or be part of a story! I never read the book but thanks Netbooster Asia and Astro Vision for inviting me to watch this extraordinary film last Wednesday at SM Megamall!

Because also, while in every typical movie, I would always put myself in the position of the protagonist (e.g. at one time I saw myself as Tom of 500 Days of Summer, and then Basha of One More Chance haha) and this would control everything about me for a certain time, this just taught me to be a partaker of my own life, to sort of put down my stories, the past, the things I watch and just to be break free with the people who love and care. To observe but to ride with life, no matter what.

So when you watch the movie, for sure, you will be a wallflower in a way. Of course, you can always relate to the movie. But the challenge is to be like Charlie, that despite all the restraints and stories, and the below status quo, still leaning towards the infinite. ūüėČ
If you haven’t watched the movie, see the trailer below! Anyway I’m really planning on buying the book!!

#Laboracay2013

It was my first #Laboracay and I spent 2 weeks on the island. It was really chaotic and crowded than my usual visits in the island, but thanks to friends and workmates who made it a bit intimate and more fun than the usual! See my visual diary below:

#SummerBlast at Puerto Princesa, Palawan

One of my goals this 2013 is to travel, and to refresh (because honestly, my busy life is not so “fresh” – haha – with all toxins in Manila, literally and figuratively). And honestly, I haven’t been in Palawan, and of course, any Filipino or tourist would say that I’m missing a lot.

True enough, my #NIVEASummerBlast experience in Puerto Princessa Palawan was the first and a very refreshing way to welcome Summer, my 2nd top favorite time of the year, when the only requirement is to soak yourself in the waters and have fun under the sun. So let me share with you my cool adventure through this photo diary!

So the event was held in Sheridan Resort near the Sabang Beach in Puerto Princessa Palawan for 3 days and 2 nights for games, tours, parties,cultural performances, rockeoke and of course the experience of the new refreshing aerosol spray details of which I posted here.

I really love how it reached most parts of my skin without exerting much effort, and the refreshing feel, and of course, the way it protected me under the sun (see how my skin stayed the same!

So above is a video of everything cool that transpired. Below are more photos!
