Baguio Weekend

come to think of it, the team didn't go anywhere. We just walked the night market of Session Road, went to Camp John Hay for Starbucks, a little trip to Manor Hotel to get bread, supposedly Strawberry picking in the farm but ended up buying more pasalubong and cheap vegetables at the highest peak I've been to, plus a short stop at Good Shepherd.

We arrived Saturday morning and went home Monday of 2AM. I guess this trip was more of getting away with work for a while and trying to find a cold weather (like our out of the country trip last year)

... it was still a worthy weekend though.

Summer Plan 2011

My family and I earned 7 free domestic round trip tickets during our Boracay Trip last October, and so I've been scouting an affordable summer getaway for all of us.

My initial choices were Boracay (again), Cebu, Bohol and Palawan.

They were pretty expensive and won't meet my criteria of an ideal family summer, until I talked to a friend of mine, Hazel, who's been to the northernmost and southernmost places of the country. So I seriously took her advice (since I know she can compare islands and experiences now) and considered going to Cebu. After some reading, I grabbed the phone and dialed Cebu Pac!

We are booked on March 11 to fly to Cebu (Bantayan Island) and stay in Budyong Beach Resort. We'll try to enjoy the serenity of this calm place, sort of Holiday weekend na rin.

Let's hope and pray we won't waste the free voucher. :)

Rina got Hitched!!

If getting married is a contest based on 'element of surprise', Rina will definitely bag the Grand Prize.

Actually and honestly, I wasn't surprised. I know, deep in her, she wants to be married soon. I just didn't realize she thought of it like two days ago?

Nonetheless, I am genuinely happy for her. She was able to pull it together, just like she wants it - people she loves, her family, simple and impromptu wedding. I bet she would have brought her dogs if it's possible.

Go and visit her facebook, these pics may not justify how it all went, but let me try :)

wedding done in more or less 30 minutes! :)

she doesn't like GRAND, but her stones show otherwise ;)
btw, i gave her nothing but flowers .. and she liked 'em

she was as always playful, this time.. over the top happy as Mrs. Guangco

the happy and supportive family .. plus one

we wouldn't be SISTERS if we won't attend

two married.. 3 to go, 1 scheduled on March
haha, pressure ito

CONGRATS to the newlyweds.
BEST WISHES on your new life Sis! :)

I am Number Four

I'm starting my new book craze this year with I AM NUMBER FOUR. The movie is coming your way on Feb 18, 2011. So better finish the book early. :D

I'm on Chapter 7 still but the story is easy to follow and very interesting.
Here's a very short plot from Wikipedia:

Nine infant aliens, who closely resemble humans, flee their home planet, Lorien, to hide on Earth. An invading species, the Mogadorians, have destroyed their planet, and followed them to Earth to hunt them down. Each of the nine aliens is given a guardian and will develop superhuman powers as they become adults. They are each assigned a number. These last children of Lorien can only be killed in the sequence of their numbers.[2] Numbers One, Two, and Three have been killed so far.

Number Four (Alex Pettyfer), also named John Smith, moves to Paradise, Ohio, disguised as an American high school student.[3] He makes a friend, Sarah Hart (Dianna Agron), a sweet Midwestern girl who is a photographer. After being on the run his whole life, Number Four falls in love and now has something to stand up and fight for.

I have yet to get my hands on Harry Potter, hantagal ko bumili.. hehe.

My Third Life

I got into a bus accident yesterday.

I'm a regular commuter. Since my family moved to rent a house here in LP, I have been a regular bus passenger. My parents, specially my mother doesn't want us to commute in the wee hours of the morning but today, I thought i don't have any other option but to leave home at 2AM.

By 3AM, I was already onboard an Ortigas bus, cruising along EDSA. About 3:15, our bus hit the rear of another bus. I was sitting on the first row by the door. Without the railing in front of me, I could have gone right through the dashboard onto the other bus, maybe hit my head, my face? By the time I knew what happened, both of my hands were already bleeding from shattered glass. I immediately contacted my officemates so they could reach Marvin.

I brought myself to Medical City where the doctor told me my hands are ok. Apart from a glass taken out of my right ring finger, abrasions on my right hand, arm bruises, I was perfectly well.

My life was again spared. Thank you Lord.

Please take extra precaution when driving and commuting.
Stay Safe everyone.
