Boracay Island Trip

Finally, I got to visit Boracay and experienced how to be a bum in this beautiful island! - December 2012
Beach Bumming at Station-2

With Mhilen and Micka

It was my first time to visit the place and unfortunately, I don't have any good quality camera to take high-resolution pictures so, all pictures here are from my phone and from tablet. Boracay is famous for its white fine sands and blue waters. To be honest, this place is much beautiful than Bali - beach wise. The small island is filled with lively people all out to have a good time.
Eary morning at the beach front...
You can find many sand art over the place made by the locals. Take a picture with it and just give donations.
Anyway, if you are looking for something that would be related to history or culture to see in this place like those in Bali, well, you have to forget it as this place is really just for hanging out and unwinding up.
You will notice that there are no person at my back. Kakauwe lang kasi nila! LOL

As a beach bum, I have to say that I like the island as it is lovely and just blue. Though there are a lot of people walking around, you can still feel relaxed. Maybe because people walking around are just relaxed too. :)

The island has three famous stations. Stations 1 to 3. Each station is different. Station 1 has the most expensive hotels and the sand is whiter and really fine. The second station I would say is the busiest. Here you can have your food trips and bar hopping. I would name it as the Entertainment Station. LOL! I have not gone to the third station but they say the sand in there is not as fine as the 2 stations. No idea how it look like. Hahaha!
You can find a lot of stores in Station-2 and Station-1.
By the way, if you are planning to visit Boracay, you have to try the night life here as this is what the island is also famous for.
I got to experience this but since I am not a fan of loud music, I just stay in a bar where there is just a man singing with a guitar. I got to try the Mojito and joined it with San Mig Light.
For my first time in Boracay, I can recommend it for people who just like to unwind and have a good time. It is a safe place for a vacation. I will definitely go back someday!

Baguio Forest House : Bed and Breakfast

One of the best places to visit and stay while you are in Baguio is this cozy place where you will always feel like it’s Christmas – Baguio Forest House. Fortunately, I was able to experience staying here even for just a night for business matters. Literally, I felt like I’m inside Santa’s house – the color, the ambiance, and the designs!

I must admit, I really love the place and now I understand why most of the people I used to ask of the where-to’s in Baguio always recommend this place.

Ambiance
One of the things I loved during my stay this September 2015 was the ambiance of each place of the house. Every part of the house is a good place to relax and feel comfortable.






The Room
The room is also one of the things I love about this place. I wish I have the same style in our house. Rustic and quaint ! I heard the house is owned by an architect which explains why the design is simply captivating.



The Food
Needless to say, the fact that I took photos of the food before eating is really som…

What I Would Say to My 22-year-old Self? After 5 years!

April 4, 2011 College of Engineering, Graduation Day at Bulacan State University
Hey Chad!
How are you? You're already 22 and about to graduate with an engineering degree! Yes, you will no longer study in school. Maybe you'll miss it, maybe, not. As Andre Maurois quoted the great English writer Carlyle, "A man ought to spend the first part of his life conversing with the dead, the second with the living and the third with himself.” and you already finished the first stage of life. Congratulations!


Now, you have an exciting future and career ahead of you. Don't worry too much about the next step. You can do it! Just stay focused. I know by now you're worrying about getting the license. Hey man! You can make it to the list! Trust me!
After that, you will be entering the corporate world. I know you’ve always wanted to be in the IT field and it has always been your passion since you entered college. When you get there, my advice to you is to focus. You have to calm d…

It's All About Time

When I was younger and looked ahead , time seemed to move so slowly….
I could hardly imagine what other folks often said.

“Ang bilis ng oras.” “Lunes na naman, trabaho na naman.” “Tapos na ang day-off…”

But, as I aged older, the years seem short now. I even sometimes hear myself say…

“Pasukan na naman?” “Di ko man lang na-enjoy ang sembreak.”
And now, I can SOMETIMES realize the brevity of life.
Sometimes… ?

Yes! Kasi may mga araw sa buhay ko bilang estudyante na nasasabi ko…

“Ang tagal naman magbakasyon. Tagal ng sembreak!” “Hay! Ang tagal naman ng class. Tinatamad na ko!!!” “Di pa ba uwian? Bato na ko!”
I know! Nagdaan ka rin sa ganyan. Nasabi mo rin yan!
But still, I can realize how short life is. “Life is fleeting as vapor”, the Bible says. Para lang tayong mga bula. We appear for a little time and then vanish away. QUESTIONS,
Paano mo ba nagamit ang TIME mo?

Paano mo nagamit ang kung ide-describe ko, the most precious commodity on earth….
Yung the most precious gift one can give…
