MAXIM MILESTONE


I am super excited to share to you guys the reason why I wasn’t able to update my blog since March. Eto ang dahilan bakit lagi akong busy. Eto ang dahilan bakit lagi akong wala sa sarili. Eto ang dahilan bakit lumala psoriasis ko. Eto ang dahilan bakit stress drillon lagi ang drama ko.

But all I can say is that, sobrang worth it all the stress this project brought me. I am super proud to become a part of the success of Maxim’s expansion building to think that I joined the company only last January. I thank the management for the opportunity and to my very supportive boss for trusting me. I’ll be in Maxim’s history forever. Di na mabubura yan =)
Lobby pa lang yan ;)
The Inauguration of the new building happened last April 27. It was a beautiful day, really perfect to welcome all our distinguished guests and guest of honor, Sec Lilia de Lima. I am again very proud to be chosen as one of the usherettes. Ang gaganda te ng mga usherettes eh tapos kasama ko, ibig sabihin nun maganda din ako? Char!

Sharing to you some of the photos during the Inauguration Day.

Sa curly hair ko at sa putok na putok na blush on ko sa katanghaliang tapat, hindi ako prepared. Lol!

It was truly another unforgettable milestone for Maxim, so proud to become a part of it!

PANGASINAN TRIP Part 3: Enchanted Cave, Cape Bolinao and the House of Asian

As early as 9am super init na in the beach. With this, we all decided to visit the famous Enchanted Cave which is approx 1 km away only from Bing’s Resort. This is famous because this is where Mariane, the actress, shot her teleserye Dyesebel. There was a P100 per head entrance fee which I find really sulit because the cave was really enchanting! Water was very refreshing and clear. Tipid pa sa sunblock because you don’t need to put some as the pool is underground. Alaveet!

Sharing to you our photos inside the cave. This is my favorite part in our Pangasinan trip. Kung hindi lang malayo to, every weekend malamang kami dito.

What’s more bongga here in Enchanted cave are the dried giant clams mixed with the garden landscape. Would you believe that these fossilized remains of giant clams are about 4-5 million years old already? Wow!
We all had to return to Bing’s resort to check out after an hour dip in Enchanted Cave. But before finally leaving, we also went to the must visit spot in Patar which is the Cape Bolinao, the second highest light house in the Philippines. Yun lang, it’s closed na pala to the guests. We just took some photos instead. The location of Cape Bolinao offers a great view of the Patar beach.
On our way back home, we were looking for a restaurant for lunch. We were thinking to try something new instead of the usual fastfood. I suggest having our lunch again in Isdaan in Tarlac but everyone disagreed because it’ll be hours away pa from Pangasinan. Malamang tirik na mata namin sa gutom pagdating sa Tarlac.

Buti na lang my family disagreed because we were able to try the House of Asian located somewhere in Pangasinan. It was owned by a chef Chinese couple who impressed us of their cooking talent. We all had a great dining experience hence this blog for them. We tried the restaurant’s beef broccoli, sinigang na maya maya, sisig and the spicy crab. Boy everything was so delicious! We paid almost P2,000 lang including the rice and drinks for all the 8 of us plus Mimay. Super sulit talaga! I hope this couple would branch out in Manila.

That ends the 3 part kwento of our Pangasinan trip. It was another fun filled weekend bonding for our family. Looking forward to our next trip!

JUST DROPPING BY

Hello guys! I miss you all! I have so many kwentos to share but unfortunately I really can’t find time to squeeze it in my schedule. Grabe my work load these past months. But no, I’m not complaining. I’m enjoying my work. I love what I’m doing and I’m very excited to go to work everyday. Masaya kahit haggardo versoza lagi.

Well, I just drop by to say HI to all of you, to let you know that I still exist and that I’m doing great in all aspects of my life. I feel so much fulfilled now. Working mom on weekdays and a full time wife and mamee on weekends. I am especially excited on this coming weekend. Super double celebration for my 28th birthday and our 4th year wedding anniversary. Can’t wait for it! We’ll celebrate it with our Mimay in our wedding venue 4 years ago =)

Sorry ‘bout this post ha? Sabog sabog kwento ko. Ang dami kasi naipon in my mind. I want to share it ng 1 bagsakan lang sana but I know it’s not possible.

Sharing to you our latest family pic in Nuvali. This was taken last Saturday lang. These two people make me smile and laugh everyday =)

O sha, have to go for now. Hopefully today’s gonna be a less busy day for me. Wish me luck!

PANGASINAN TRIP Part 2: Bing’s Beach Resort, Bolinao

We arrived in Bolinao at around 5pm already. We checked in at Bing’s Resort. As much as we wanted to stay in Treasures of Bolinao, fully booked na sya. Choz! Ang totoo, it was super way out of our budget. So we settled in Bing’s instead. Pwede na din at 2,500 per night, which is good for 4 pax already. P5,000 for 2 airconditioned rooms located in beach front. San ka pa? J

As soon as our things were settled in our rooms, we decided to hit the beach. Sinong pagod sa byahe? Hehe. We weren’t able to take some photos in the beach because all our phones and cameras do not have batteries anymore. Pero syempre gumawa ko paraan maka souvenir shot kahit 1 man lang. #talkingaboutresourcefulness.

For our dinner, we asked the resort’s caretaker to prepare sweet and sour lapulapu, fish sinigang and corned beef (for my kuya dong, he dislikes seafoods).  Nothing beats talaga a great dinner with a crazy family like ours.

The following day, we all woke up early to again experience the beautiful sunrise, sand, water, corals and waves of Bolinao. It’s almost perfect except for the rocky beach. We all had our slippers on while swimming. 


I know naumay kayo sa pictures ko, ako din eh haha! So allow me to share also these beautiful photos of our mowdel baby.

Soooper adorable, right? Mana sa mamee J

Next is my post on enchanted Cave and Bolinao lighthouse.

PANGASINAN TRIP Part 1: Hundred Islands experience

As much as I wanted to immediately share here our out of town trip last weekend, I wasn’t able to squeeze it in my schedule. Since I only had 3 working days for the past week, I had to finish my to-do’s for 5 days within 3 days only. Ayun sa awa ni Lord, di ko pa rin natapos hehe. I had to extend my working hours til 12 midnight yesterday for me to be able to cope up.

It’s a good thing my mag-ama are catching their siesta so I have the time to blog even if today is a Saturday. We’ll be going to mall later to have our late lunch and buy an AC unit for our room. Sobrang init na talaga and a wall fan is not enough anymore for us to get some good sleep at night.

Anyways, I just want to share to you guys our super fun Pangasinan trip last weekend. Together with my immediate family including my mommy, ate & her hubby kuya dong, my bro with his wife ate jona, ninang chee, my hubby poy & our baby mimay, off we went at 3am from Laguna going to Pangasinan.

The 8 hour travel to Pangasinan is super sisiw for us. Wala pa ring tatalo sa 14 hour travel namin before to Sagada and just recently, our 16 hour trip to Ilocos.

We had our breakfast in, where else? Jollibee! At 8:30 am, we where in Rosales Pangasinan already.

Our first stop, Hundred Islands. We arrived at 11am and boy it was scorching hot! We all had to buy hat to protect us from Mr. Sun.

We rented a motor boat for P1,160 that would bring us to the 3 main islands namely Quezon Island, Governor’s Island and Children’s Island. We didn’t stay to swim in any of those Islands because we will be going to Bolinao beach anyway. Here are some of our photos. Mimay was supper giddy with her boat experience. She was nervous at first and was embracing her dadee for her dear life.
 
If you plan to go to Hundred Island, you can ask the boatmen to drop you in any of those 3 Islands and asked them to pick you up before 5:30pm. The nicest Island is Quezon Island because of the cottages there where you can lounge and eat while you enjoy swimming & snorkeling in the clear waters of the beach.

We had lunch in Mang Inasal after our Hundred Islands visit and got some groceries nearby for some snacks & bread that we plan to bring on our next stop, Bolinao =)

MIMAY MEETS BARNEY

Written: Tuesday May 1, 2012 2215H

The long weekend is over. Ang bilis. I still have hang over from our Barney experience and Bolinao trip. I have to say, the past weekend was one of the most unforgettable for us especially for our darling Mimay.

My mag-ama are both snoring in chorus beside me right now. I’m sure, my weekend hang over din sila. And as much as I want to join them in bed, I thought of sharing muna with you guys our Mimay’s first ever Barney live experience.

Just to give you an intro, our daughter super loves Barney. As in mega love. Tingin ko nga pag tinanong ko si Mimay ngaun sino gusto nya mapangasawa, sasagot nyan si Barney eh. Exage. Pero what I’m trying to say is that, Mimay super duper adores Barney. I guess all the kids do. So with that, I was very excited when I learned about Barney show in Aliw Theatre.

As soon as I got the approval and go signal from hubby, we immediately got tickets for the show. Lastik sa mahal ng mga tickets. Mahal pa sa concert ni Toni Gonzaga! But since we know that Mimay will be super happy with it, pikit mata, we bought the tickets as our birthday gift to her.

Last Saturday, April 28, we came in Aliw Theatre 20 mins before the 4pm show. Outside food is not allowed inside the theatre so we bought hotdog sandwich na lang from Purefoods kiosk. Inside the theatre, Mimay was super excited waiting for Barney. Nakakahawa nga eh. I was very excited to see Barney too. Ikaw ba naman gabi gabi manood ng Barney sa laptop, ewan ko na lang kung hindi rin kayo maging close ni Barney.

At exactly 4:05 pm, Barney came out of the stage.

Nauna pa ko tumili sa anak ko! Na star struck ako eh, bakit ba? Haha!

Here are the photos of Mimay while watching Barney, BJ, Baby Bop and Rif on stage. She was singing the whole time as well, kagulo na nga lyrics but nevertheless, it was so cute seeing her sing & dance to Barney’s songs.

Yun lang, it was heartbreaking too seeing our Mimay cry while Barney sings “I love you, you love me. We’re a happy family, with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won’t you say you love me too?” Ayaw nya umalis si Barney on stage.Nagka separation anxiety ang bruha haha!

The show lasted for 90 mins including the 20 mins break. Sulit na din because not only Mimay did enjoy the show, kami din ni Poy. Barney was really adorable.
See you soon Barney! Please visit Pinas again =)
