Caramoan: A place worth falling in-love with

About a month ago when I had one of the best travel experience of my life when my friends and I took a three days and 2 nights vacation in Camaoan. While I said it’s a place worth falling in-love with. Truth is… It definitely is and you should book your flight tickets now to Naga and visit this paradise.

I started obsessing about Caramoan when I was in fourth year college and I never stopped even after graduation. I even told myself I’m gonna visit this place someday. Then, here we are and it’s more than I have ever dreamed of. To be honest, I think this could be my happy place.

For those of you who don’t know. Caramoan is where Survivor Series are filming. Some of the best Islands where closed due to the filming but that did not stop us nor the cloudy days to explore and see what this peaceful place has to offer. 

It felt like being in two places at once. Taste of Batanes and a view of Palawan.

Tip 1: I know people say the best time to visit is during April-May. But I’d say, June works out the best because there’s not a lot of tourist and the weather is just right. 

Tip 2: Do this when you’re doing the Island hopping. Sit at the end of the boat with your friends/family. Just chill. Admire your view and forget about the pictures. See the beautiful place that’s just right in front of you. (You can even sing with your friends/family. Imagine you are floating in the water with nothing but great views and good times with your loved ones). You can thank me later šŸ˜‰

A big thanks to Tugawe Cove Resort for accomodating us througout our stay. I’m coming back in the summer that’s for sure. 

All the love,

Okay lang, mahal ko yung sarili ko.

Sabi nila matapang daw ako. Sabi nila ang lakas daw ng loob ko. Sabi nila bilib daw sila sakin. Hindi. Mahal ko lang yung sarili ko.

It’s been five months now since I moved here in Dubai. Can’t beleive how time flies so fast like this, the last thing I remember I was at the airport hallway, carrying a yellow envelope on my right hand, green  suitcase on the other; waving goodbye to my beloved Dad. Looking back now, five months? Not even enough for people to say how brave I am. But I appreciate it, the thing is. I’m not. I’ve been back and forth for so many times, torn between Yes I wanted this and No this is not really want I want. Most heartbreaking part is, I accepted it in the end. Because you know what? I love myself like that.

Many would disagree but all I can say is. Kapag mahal mo yung sarili mo, alam mo kung anong makakapag pasaya sayo. Kung mahal mo yung sarili mo, hindi ka mag da-doubt sa sarili mo na kaya mo. Kung mahal mo yung sarili mo, kahit ilang beses kang nagpabalik-balik sa decision mo, alam mo pa rin yung deserve mo.

Hindi naman mahirap gawin. Kailangan mo lang tanggapin na may mga bagay na hindi mo kayang gawin, at may mga bagay na ikaw lang ang may kaya. Lalo na ang tanggapin mo na may oras lahat ng bagay. Kung para sayo, para sayo. Hindi ibig sabihin na hindi para sayo hindi mo deserve. Ibig sabihin lang may mas deserving ka. Saang aspeto ba? Sa work man yan, kaibigan or love life. Minsan kasi tayo pag hindi natin nakukuha yung isang bagay feeling natin pinagkakait na. Baka naman kasi dapat paghirapan lang bago mapasayo.

Okay lang. Basta alam mo sa sarili mo, tulad ng sinabi ko kanina. Alam mo yung deserve mo.

Eto simplehan lang natin, mga bagay na dapat mo sigurong marealize, okay lang mag disagree ka: As long as nagpapakatotoo ka 

1. Accept yourself. Una sa lahat, tanggapin mo muna yung sarili mo. Bago ang lahat, ikaw yan. Yan ka na. Isa pa, wala ng iba. Ilang beses pa ba dapat ulitin na kung ano mang pagkululang ang meron ka, tanggapin mo kasi that makes you YOU.

2. Don’t depend your happiness on others. Isang pagkakamali yung sinasabi nila na “Ikaw lang makakapag pasaya sakin.Kalokohan. Nakakapag laro ka nga ng barbie mag isa noon masaya ka naman di ba? Nakuha mo pang mag bahay-bahayan kahit may nagpapanggap lang na tatay di ba? Bakit nung tumanda ka kinalimutan mo na nagawa mong mapasaya yung sarili mo kahit mag isa ka? Bakit all of a sudden yung pagiging masaya mo depende na sa iba? Point is, kaya mo naman. Baka kasi ayaw mo lang.

3. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Baka masyado mong pine-pressure yung sarili mo sa expectations ng iba. Wag. Wag mong hayaan na malamangan ka ng “disappointing ka” sa “masaya kami para sayo”. 

4. Give yourself a break. Okay lang minsan mag breakdown ka. Umiyak ka. Magpaka subsub ka sa sakit. Mag lupasay ka. Okay lang. May mga moments talaga na gusto mo lonely lang yung feeling mo the whole day, or kung minsan trip mo lang mag paka-sad sa buhay. Naiintindihan kita. Pero, again, deserve mo yung happiness. Breath ka lang. Maybe these are bad days but remember this is not a bad life.

5. Believe in yourself. Yes. Wala ng iba. Wala ng ibang tutulong sayo kundi ikaw. Sa totoong buhay, ikaw at ikaw lang talaga ang makakatulong sa sarili mo. Paniwalaan mo yung kakayanan mo, tanggapin mo yung kahinaan mo. Work hard sa mga bagay na gusto mo talaga, pag gusto may paraan. Pag binigay mo yung puso mo sa isang bagay make sure na kaya mo yung bigat. Sa totoo lang wala ng mas sasarap sa feeling na sobrang hirap pero nagawa mo, kasi nag tiwala ka sa sarili mo. Iba yon. Yun yung hindi matutumbasan ng kahit na ano. Yung nasa baba ka na, down na down na. Pero alam mo sarili mo na kaya mo at magagawa mo.

Hindi ko alam, kasi hindi naman lahat tayo parehas ng situation. Para sakin lang ha baka there’s someone somewhere who’s going  through the same thing that I did. 

Hoping at some point, it might help. I know some of my friends will. I’m here for you, no matter how big a situtaion is; life must go on and trust that everything will fall into places one day. 

Share your thoughts. I’d be happy to know what you think.

All the love that I could give,

The perfect Band for your Party!

It’s been a long time since the last time I updated this blog and heyyy it feels good to be back!!! So as a comeback story, I thought why not share with you guys some of the bands I’ve seen during our various events and thought it might help you decide if you are looking for a band for your party. So if you are having a hard time thinking if you should get One Direction or 5 Seconds of Summer or Maroon 5, I’m telling you — don’t. Haha not that they’re not good or anything (Trust me I will if I can!!! *insert screaming emojis* but you can have the perfect band for your party in theĀ cheapest, most affordable cost, same energy and total 100% amount of fun as much you want.

For those ladies who will celebrate their 18th birthday or any birthdays I suggest “The Juan Band“. The band is consisted of five cuties (Carl Guevarra, Japs Mendoza, Jiad Arroyo, Jason De Mesa & Daniel Grospe). TheyĀ have been doing covers of Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud; Sheppard – Geronimo; Maroon 5 – She Will be Loved & Sunday Morning. We had them during Ria’s 18th birthday and I tell you what, Ā they were totally legit. This band is under Viva Records so no need for me to explain the credibility.

If you are having an intimate party then I guess Jensen and The Flips is what you need they could be perfect for your wedding. They had a single called “Love Child” which I think would be goodĀ for a beach wedding. Go check them out, I promise you’ll be surprised.

Wanna bring on some girl power on your party? Throw it like a pro with Baihana’s trio, theseĀ ladies can bring the Jazz style into another level. They createĀ and arrange songs that are uniquely refreshing especially to the Filipino audience. Did I mention incredibly different? Think I did. šŸ™‚

Another girl band on my list go check out The Silk band. They have been singing 80’s fast, 2000’s current fast, Current Slow-Mid & A lot of foreign songs as well as OPM.

For Corporate events I highly suggest Fat SessionĀ I can’t have a word of how good they are, but I’m really sure that you won’t regret gettingĀ them.

There you go guys! Go plan that big party andĀ I hope these bands can fix it. Don’t forget to leave your comments below and give this a thumbs up if you like it. šŸ™‚

PINTO ART MUSEUM IN ANTIPOLO

Ā 

Ā ANTIPOLO IS A NICE PLACE FOR SUMMER

Lat week my manager told me that our client will be having a photoshoot for her daughter’s Ā 18th birthday and I said “okay photo shoot that sounds fun” but not until I found out that it will be in Pinto Art Gallery. Don’t get me wrong I have never heard about this gallery before until that day so I did what a normal person would do nowadays, searched it on Instagram find a couple of selfies I guess and there…a moment of clarity that finally I have found my love at first sight.

Pinto Art Museum is located at San Roque, Antipolo, Rizal if you were from South or North side of Metro Manila you could take the MRT going to Ortigas or Shaw Boulevard Station, take a walk to Megamall and ride an FX going to Simbahan/Antipolo then ask the driver to drop you at Ynares Sports Center so from there you could take a tricycle ride going to Grand Heights Subdivision for only 40.00 pesos, inside the subdivision is the Pinto Art Museum.

The gallery is known for its Greek style and nature vibe which is perfect for a chill yet fun date.

Ā 

Ā Ā 

A lot of artists have contributed their work in this museum likeĀ Elmer Borlongan andĀ Luis Ac-ac to give people something to be proud of and truly once you’ve enter this place all you could think of is pure joy and pride.

Ā Ā Ā Ā 

I spent half of my day in this museum yet I felt like it is not enough for me to absorb its beauty and silent. That for the first time in my work life I felt not working at all.

This is really something new to me so the sense of excitement is still there. To anyone who wish to visit this place I’d like you to take the best person you know because you are really gonna love it and this is worth sharing.

Don’t forget to try the truffle fries it’s the best.

Enjoy it while looking in the sunset view.

Three major tip if you are planning your visit already.

1. Wear a comfortable outfit that is good for this weather. Sure you don’t want anything to ruin your fun day.

2. Very important. Don’t ever forget to bring your camera. Capture everything. Take lots of photos, who cares if your cameroll is full? This is a perfect picture site.

3. Find this secret forest, you’ll be surprised.

Thanks for taking time to view this blog. I would love read your comments so leave them below. Also, I will try to give more insights on what we do in events so keep visiting this blog.

Peace and love for everyone. šŸ˜˜
