WANDERLUST #TOURISMFEELS

“I want to travel the world,” said the girl who cannot even step outside of their floor mat. –anonymous

Did you ever wonder what the world really looks like? Well for me, always. I always imagine what the feeling of being a traveller is. For once, I want to go somewhere, where I can see myself as being free. Fortunately, I was given a chance to experience it and I think that it is one of my most unforgettable moments in my life. My first ever adventure located at “the queen city of south” Cebu city, Philippines. I was so excited that day cause finally, I‘d be at 24,000 feet above again. I want to explore and know more about life. Like what life would be without my parents but just a circle of friends? I used to be with my parents whenever we had a field trip when I was a kid. As the airplane was lifting, my heart also uplifts because the sky was so beautiful. It was so blue. So clear.  As I look up in the sky, I feel overwhelmed and suddenly ask myself that “Where is God?” I want to thank him that time, most of the time. I want to hug him.  Then I found out that we cannot see God, but we can feel him. We cannot see him behind clouds and airplanes. Thus, we can see him through our hearts. Right at that very moment, I realized one thing. I am blessed because I have good parents that allow me to join in the tour. I have been blessed. I was blessed and forever be blessed.

At exactly 3:30 in the morning, my eyes automatically opened and let my adrenaline rush. Kate, Dane and Mae ann are my buddies on that tour and I thank God that I met those people. We are supposed to be six. But Anna and Lyca  went with batch 5. They are brave, bold and hilarious. The tour is the reason of our camaraderie. They are also my roommates while on tour. God knows how I loved them. We made Vlogs (Video blogs) and took pictures.

 

 

 

We are so happy and excited when we saw each other’s face at that time. While writing this, half of my heart felt sad. How I wish we could all do this again. We are so excited to board on aircraft and see those flight attendants errands. As we already ride on the plane and the engine starts to run, my heart starts beat so fast. I admire those beautiful flight attendants of Cebu Pacific airlines. On that time, I promised to myself that one day I would be the one who will assists and give instructions on board to the passengers. I dreamed on that tour so much.

Our travel time was about one and a half hour until we reached Cebu. I remember that the flight attendant told us in the instruction that it is not allowed for the passengers to take pictures along the runway area. But since some of  us are first timers, no one can stop us!

Before we went to our first destination, we went first to our hotel the crown regency hotels. To be honest, the ambiance of the hotel was cosy and warm but for me, we cannot deny that it was also creepy. It is just my impression to the hotel. It was my first time to check in on a hotel so I have those “kilig” feeling.

After we fix and change clothes, we went to our first destination the Magellan’s cross. It is the famous site in Cebu in which I thought it is huge but it was beautiful even if it just small. I was just little disappointed because I expected that it was big like a church but it was just a small structure with a painted Jesus, Marys’ and angels in the ceiling. Nevertheless, it was so beautiful. Before we leave at the magellan’s cross I wish and prayed at that time. I was so fascinated and mesmerized by the touch of blue in the ceiling.

After at the Magellan’s cross, we went to souvenir hunting, fort Santiago to see some paintings and historical site and bought some pasalubongs for our family. The day 1 ends by eating our dinner at royal concourse buffet.
That night, I prayed and thanked God for letting and bringing us safe from Manila to Cebu. I texted my parents on what happened  that day. Even if it is just one day, I am so exhausted and felt like we have been there for days. We Are supposed to dip in the pool but since we are tired, we decided to just watch and take a rest because, on that night, we expected that the best is yet to come. Hello, Oslob!!

         Day 2 was the best day ever on our tour! Road trips, the seaside, fresh air, and nature at its finest! It takes 3-4 hours to reach the Aaron beach resort. The time of the travel was long but it was not time-consuming because Cebu fed our eyes on the natural resources that they have. We did whale shark watching in Oslob and for me, it is one of the most memorable things that happened in my life. At first, we don’t want to pay for 300 pesos cause we think it’s just a whale shark. But I can’t explain the feeling when we saw the whale shark. It’s worth it! We ate lunch at the seaside and I just cannot explain the feeling of happiness that I feel that time. After to Aaron’s beach resort, we went to tumalog falls and from there I realized that God is really great and artistic because when we went to the tumalog falls, we rode on a habal-habal. When we went up, the view was paradise. All I can see is sky blue. The sea and the sky. It is more like when God explode blessings in nature, Cebu grasped all of the beautiful blessings of nature. While I’m on the travel, I heard my mom’s voice in the back of my mind and I can hear what she told me that I should study hard so I can travel in any places that I want. And I can bring them to any paradise here in the Philippines. In addition, I learned the lessons in tourism and most, especially in life. I know it’s kind of short travel but I believe that sometimes we travel not because we want to find new things or know about the place. We travel because we want to find and know more about ourselves. Based on what I observed in the place, the people in Cebu are living simple but I can see the happiness through their eyes and it shines like a beam of sunlight. I think their government are in good hands because they really developed the tourism in Cebu.

MY FIRST EVER WHALE SHARK ENCOUNTER!

As what they say, money fills pocket but adventure fills your soul. It is not just adventure that fills my soul, but Cebu is the place where I dreamed big and the things that I want to achieve in my life. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I truly believe that life is indeed beautiful. By that time, I strongly agree to Elena Levon that we should choose to collect memories instead of things. I will never forget our travel in Cebu. I left half of my heart in the place. I will never forget the people whom I with, the places that we went and the one in a lifetime experience that we went through. Cebu will always be in my heart. I am very grateful to have our professors and my friends while on the tour. I believe that there is a possibility that it can happen again. I have this feeling that the next destination will be in Ilocos, Philippines.  All glory to God! TRAVEL? It’s more fun in the Philippines! 🙂

 

Okay lang naman diba?

Okay lang naman kung di ako maganda diba?
Kahit naman di ako maganda, pwede naman ako mag make up.
Gaganda na din ako kahit papano.

Okay lang naman kahit di ako seksi diba?
Kahit naman di ako seksi, pwede akong di kumain ng isang linggo pero basta may tubig ha? Uhawin kasi ako.
Papayat ako dun. Kahit tubig lang.

Okay lang naman kahit di ako sikat diba?
Kahit naman di ako sikat, may mga kaibigan naman ako kahit papano.
Papalike ko na lang mga picture ko sa facebook.

Okay lang naman kahit di ako makinis diba?
Kahit naman di ako makinis, may gamot naman at lotion naman.
Teka, di na lang pala ako lalabas para pumuti ako.

Okay lang naman kung di ako mayaman diba?
Di man ako kayamanan, nag aral naman ako eh.
May diploma naman ako. Yun. Pwede nakong humanap ng trabaho para maging mayaman.

Ganun kasi kita kagusto. Iniisip ko na  baka di sasapat yung pag ibig ko sayo.

Kaya naman sana lahat ng ito, matanggap mo.
Sana lahat ng to, okay sayo.
Kasi lahat ng ito ay okay lang saakin.
Basta siguraduhin mo lang na ikaw ay mapapasaakin.

Beware of ‘batang hamog’

Papunta ako kanina sa school para umattend sa fashion show namin sa lit na siyang kinadahilan ng pagbaba ng self esteem ko. Tamad na tamad talaga ako kagabi pa.
Naalala ko sabi ng mom ko, “Kapag mabigat kalooban mo pag aalis, wag mo na ituloy.” Pero tumuloy pa din ako kasi mahirap kung nganganga ako sa show at sa grade. So nung papunta nako, huminto yung jeep sa may bandang mrt sa pasay. Im sure na lima lang talaga kaming babae dun. Then biglang may umakyat na ‘batang hamog’ sa jeep. Nanghihingi siya ng pera. Gutom na daw sya. Ako yung una niyang kinulit pero di ko siya pinapansin. Kasi wala rin talaga akong pera kanina. Sakto lang. Nangulit siya sa iba pero binalikan niya talaga ako. At patuloy na kinukulit. Naiinis nako. “Ate pahinging pera. Kahit piso lang. Maganda ka pa naman.” Hindi ko pa rin sya pinansin. Makulit pa din. Binigyan ko piso. Tinapon niya pabalik saakin. Ayaw niya daw. Manghaharass daw siya. Kahit isumbong daw sa pulis, wala daw siyang pake. Natakot ako. Binantaan niya ako. Tatandaan niya daw mukha ko. Ang tagal niya akong tinitigan. Takot na takot ako. Sabi ng mga kapwa ko pasahero, buti na lang daw at di nangsaksak ng icepick. Yung iba daw kasi ganun. At higiy sa lahat, Buti na lang may iba pang daanan para di nako dumaan dun. Punyeta. Kinakabahan pa din ako.

Pero kailangan kong maging matapang. Para makapasok at bahagi talaga ng buhay estudyante yan lalo na pag malayo ang school.

Pero may mga narealize ako:
1. Buti pa siya tatandaan ako
2. Sinabi niyang maganda ako
3. Hindi ako papatalo. Kailangan ko ng lakas ng loob at kasama ko ang diyos.
4. Only belo touches my skin. How dare him to touch me.

Pero totoo to. Hanggang ngayon iniisip ko pa din yun. Shit..

Kemerror 101: Self esteem not found ❎🚫

So while i was checking my newsfeed on facebook, I saw my pretty friends turned into a beautiful creatures. They really evolved as a real human. (Well we are all human but they are different human. Like in a class A ladies) and i have this feeling like, yes i am happy for them but in the back of my mind i can’t find myself. Like i am searching for my confidence. My self esteem. They are really beautiful. Two of my friends joined in a beauty pageant and my bestfriend who studied in PWU is always an usherette in her school. ‘Cause she’s really pretty.
You know, sometimes im just wondering that how does it feel to be beautiful? What is the feeling of having many suitors? How about recieving many gifts from boys? Is it great? Satisfying? Cool? Grabe no.

But great thing is, i have tears and God. I cry and I pray. The moment i envy their beautiful faces, i say sorry to God cause I think everytime i can’t find my selfesteem, it also means that i am not contented on the face or body he has given to me. Its just that i am wondering what is the feeling of being pretty.

Hay. Hustisya. Joke. Lord, sorry.
Self esteem. Pumarito ka’t sumapi ka saakin.

KAYO PONG NAKAUPO….

Ano bang meron sa gobyerno na wala sa kababayan mo?

Balita ko, hindi mo raw pinirmahan ang dagdag SSS pension para saga tao.
Pero ang laki raw ng mga bonus mo sa mga tauhan mo.

Ano bang meron sa taong bayan na wala sa gabinete mo at hindi mo kayang gawin ito para sa kapwa mo pilipino?

Oo. Alam kong sasabihin mo na mahirap ang tungkulin mo. Naiintindihan ko. Pero may mga katwiran ka kasing hindi rin namin naiintindihan.

Nagsasabi at nagsasalita lang ako. Mahirap naman kasi kung nakikita ko nang naghihirap ang kapwa ko pilipino eh magbubulagbulagan na lang ba ako at mananahimik?

Minsan kitang pinaburan sa mga adhikain mo. Ngunit unti unti ring lumabasa ang baho mo.
Sa ginagawa mo, hindi ko alam kung sasang-ayon ang mga bayani. Dahil kami ngang mga kababayan mo ay hindi natutuwa, sila pa kaya?

Lagi mong pinagtatakpan ang gobyerno sa kanilang pagkakamali pero ang kapwa mo pilipinong inaakusahan ng pagkakamali sa ibang bayan ay iyong hinahayaan.

Nirerespeto ko ang binigay na kalayaan ng iyong mga magulang sa ating bayan.
Pero sana respetuhin at pakinggan mo rin ang boses ng iyong kababayan.

‘Diba kami ang boss mo? O kris aquino?
