Moving On

Last March 28-April 4, 2014 me and my friends Yen and Maden attended the PLTI (PSALM Leadership Training Institute) with the theme “Moving On” procured from Isaiah 43: 18-19. This is a nationwide event, therefore there are participants all over the Philippines. Its all so fun and exciting to get to know people from different places in the Philippines. I know it has been too long since the training, but since I still couldn’t “Move On”, I’ll blog about it instead. (haha)

The 7-day event was held at Dao, Pagadian City. There are 4 (four) different levels you’ll go through as you repetitively join the training every year. The said levels are Basic, Advanced, Specialized and Administrative levels, and me and yen are in Specialized level already. Participants of this level before told us that this is the most relaxed and fun level among the four levels. We did so many activities. One of which is (and my favorite) is the Song composition based on the theme “Moving On”. The section/group’s song that’ll be chosen will become the batch’s graduation song. Since I’m really very proud of the song that our section/group made (It’s Passionate by the way, our section’s name), which was chosen as the graduation song. Imma share it you guys. πŸ˜€

And oh by the way, here are some of the photos taken during the training. There are lots, but of course I just chose the ones that has me on it. (hehehehe)

This happens every morning (devotionals) before breakfast. πŸ™‚

Image

Me and Crystal during the CST day. This photo was supposed to be a stolen photo, but yeah, we decided to smile anyway.

Image

We were sent out to share the gospel during this day. Big smiles everyone! πŸ˜€

Image

Cagayan de Oro Reprezentz!

Image

These are all the participants during the training. 173 Delegates from all over the Philippines, of course, mostly from Mindanao.

Image

We also had exams on the last day after all the lessons on the previous days. Kinda hard!

Image

These are the Specialized Delegates during the Graduation and Banquet. 25 delegates in the said level. Wondered why we’re dressed like this? The theme of the party was Prince and Princesses. So these are the outfits we came up with.

Image

Me and my partner Kuya Simpol. I liked this photo so much, made me looked like I’m tall and thin. (haha)

Image

Yen and her partner Matt-matt. The “towering” pair. They’re both tall. Like really tall. She said she’s a galactic princess which explains the galaxy printed dress. ^_^

Image

Image

Finally received my certificate! Didn’t got the Academic Award though. #MedyoAmbisyosa (haha)

Image

This is my favorite photo of me and my room mates. We call ourselves “The Artis” for fun.

Image

Image

Last day or the farewell day finally came. πŸ˜₯

Image

Image

Me and Maden played with “Miming-in-a-box” for the last time. We hate to say goodbye to that very cute cat. But yeah, I guess that was all for the training. I hope you had fun looking at the pictures. Didn’t elaborate the event through words, because I believed that “Pictures already speaks a thousand words” (or so as the saying goes, whatever. I know you get what I mean. (haha)

Time Travel Tuesday

Since my summer getaway will still be this Saturday, let me share to you one summer escaped I had last year with my high school batchmates in Midway Resort, Initao.

It’s a man-made White sand resort. But still worth-it with the clear blue green waters and nice sunset/sunrise view. Many local photographers do photoshoots in this place because it’s the nearest White Sand Resort in Cagayan de Oro and it doesn’t look any cheaper than those from far away areas like Camiguin. Entrance way back 2013 is 25php, I don’t know if it still has the same price today. They also have different activities to offer like coral reef watching for 30mins, Banana boat ride for 10pax, Zipline and more!

Well, here are some of the photos taken in Midway. Due to the very beautiful sunset we took much photos of ourselves rather than that of the activities we did. πŸ˜€

If you’re a resident of Cagayan de Oro City, I suggest you visit this place as well. It’s just a 45min-ride from the city and you’ll already get to feel fresh air, white sand and clear salty waters. πŸ™‚

When God Made You

A bride in white beautifully adorned wedding gown walking slowly down the isle to the tune of the wedding melody ringing throughout the church’s infrastructure. Awwwweee, don’t you just love weddings? I, myself dreamt of the day that I’ll be the one walking on the same Isle as hers with the man I love waiting for me in front. (Plus points if he will cry as my friend always say! :D) I dreamt of the day that I too can sing the same lyrics of the song “When God Made You” to my other half. ❀

Oh well so much for day dreaming, let’s proceed to the wedding of the year. Last April 25, 2014, I was invited to Atsi Karla and Kuya Ace’s wedding. The event was grand and intimate. Relatives and close friends were the only ones who were invited. From the venue of the wedding ceremony to the reception, everything was thoroughly thought of and carefully planned. For you to a better picture of what I’m talking about, here are some of the photos during the wedding that me and my friend took.

#TravelWithSpruce

April is indeed a busy month for me. Aside from the fact that it’s my birth month, I was also invited into several events. One of the event I was invited by my Photographer friend Florence V., to the mini Spruce “Picnic Party” at Lifestyle District last April 12, 2014. I know, I know this post is long overdue and I must be ashamed of myself for posting this blog so late. But as the saying goes, “Better late than never”, so I’m still posting this thing here! πŸ™‚

On the event, I’m not really fond of girly stuffs, but I should say I was really mesmerized by the cute set-up of the whole place. My attention was caught especially by the Vintage set-up on the front and on each tables.

Enough with the words, here are the photos that Florence got during the event.

Image

Image

The hosts prepared a mini paper plane flying game, where nobody won. Who in the world would’ve thought that game was that hard? haha

Image

I also got to meet these lovely and gorgeous ladies during the event too! (They’re all soooo purdyyy ^_^)

Image

We got to enjoy these cute munchkins during “chow” time, together with nachos, mixed nuts and a fruit tea. πŸ™‚

Image

Image

Image

Image

Paola Pilapil, Geli Paras, and Mai Tan shared their personal travel experiences during the event.

Image

The event was for the Launching of their “Travel With Spruce” Promo, where each individual in Cagayan de Oro has an equal chance of getting an Instax Mini by buying stuffs from Spruce. The more you buy, the more you’ll receive gifts from Spruce. Isn’t amazing?

Image

Image

Image

Image

What made the event more fun was that, I got to go there with my two closest friends Yen and Florence! πŸ™‚

That’s all for my “Better late than never” post!

A Night To Remember

Since it’s Throwback Thursday today and people are still all high and up for the hearts month, February. I’m going to post my outfit on our church’s event for Valentine’s day “A Night to Remember”.

Last year I was also happily single and not bitter so I volunteered to be an Usher during our church’s event for couples (married/dating) and surrounded myself with these awesome people.

Photo Credits to the ever awesome Florence S. Velasco

Just so you know, my hair didn’t magically grew overnight. It’s originally long before it died last year. And when it died, I cut it so short you wouldn’t even remember of me having a long hair. :3

Image

Image

Image

What I’m wearing? All is thrifted, both Powder Pink Colored Cardigan and Floral Dress (Thrift shops actually has some awesome stuffs ‘ya know?), Nude Pumps (Primadona)

Did I tell you how much I love stolen photos. So kudos to Florence for capturing this nice stolen photo of me. πŸ™‚

Singles Love Day

To whoever said that singles could or should not celebrate during Valentine’s day and should just curl up in bed and eat fattening foods should totally wake up from that sad Valentine’s Day myth.

So me and my awesome friend Yen (who are both currently and happily single) decided to prep up on the very said day. We thought, why be sloppy and sad on Valentine’s Day? This pretty lady pretty much encourages me whenever I feel so insecure with my looks. She uplifts me by pointing me back to my one true Lover, Jesus Christ. Indeed an amazing friend provided by my amazing Father. I am truly blessed to have know her and my other friends in Church. πŸ™‚

I know I’m a bit late in posting this, but so what? hahaha. So here are some of the photos taken by our PhotoG friend Marco Villanueva(an amazing photoG, kudos to the very nice shots you got Marco!)

Image

Image

Did I tell you how much I love stolen photos? It captures the real you. πŸ™‚

Image

And by the way, if you haven’t been informed me, Yen and Andrew got this signature smile, we call it “The Celebrity Smile” (hahah)

Here’s one photo of Yen during the shoot (my personal fave <3). You can check more of her photos on her blog site. Click “here”

Image

And here are some of the photos Marco took of me. Sorry for the lousy poses, I’m not a professional model -_-” (haha)

Image

Image

Β I decided to put a little bit of contrast to my girly floral outfit by using a Military Boots for my footwear instead of a flats or sandals.

Image

What I’m wearing: Black Floral Spaghetti Strap Dress (Cotton On), Black Knitted Cardigan (Cotton On), Black Military Type Boots (H&M), Flower Earings (Forever 21)

Sorry for this disturbing blooper photos. Remember what I told earlier in this blog on how I love stolen photos? hahaha. Sorry Yen! Love you! πŸ™‚

Before I end this post, let me leave one good advice I live by: “Surround yourself with people who will lift you up rather than the people who will pull you down” πŸ™‚
