Sharpie!

Warning: mababaw na post ito.


I am not sure when I started dreaming of owning Sharpie pens. Call me "mababaw ang kaligayahan" but it's one of my dreams to get Sharpie pens. I don't even know why. I just heard that they write better and last longer than ordinary markers.

So after months of salivating over the 21-piece Sharpie pens at National, I tried to search for a cheaper alternative in Lazada. It's 25 pieces this time, at P729.00.


Here they are... my new babies!!!




Thanks for visiting!

Wow, Siargao!

I was again given the privilege to visit another province - Surigao!

The public beach in Surigao
Surigao is pleasant. Sadly, I didn't have a full day to enjoy it... just a couple of hours only since we had to work.

Road going to the Pier
And when in Surigao, it is a must to visit Siargao, the surfing capital of the Philippines.

Siargao is about 2 1/2-3 hours away from Surigao City via a motor vessel.  Fare is P210 pesos, plus P15.00 terminal fee.  Tricycle to the surfing area costs around P200 for the entire tricycle. The ride from the port to the accommodations was roughly an hour  of scenic, winding road.


The port is very clean! The ship is also clean! There's tv in every cabin, or whatever they call it. There was a promo at that time- it was on the deck- for about P175 or 190. It was not airconditioned and there was no tv, but you see close up where the ship is going and you can feel the wind on your hair and the amazing scent of the sea. I would have chosen that, but I had my colleagues with me, and I didn't want to burden them since they may not be the outdoorsy type.

There's a canteen inside the ship!

Life is Good

Life gives us a lot of blows and punches. Just like the recent Pacquiao-Horn fight, life gives us a lot of surprises- some good, some bad. 

There are so times I complain about life - why, despite working hard, we still have financial difficulties, why misunderstandings in relationships still arise, why traffic is terrible, all those mundane questions about life.

Then, an unexpectedly as life's blows, I get bowled over by simple but meaningful acts of love like the one below, when I got inside our family vehicle on my way to work.



Ahh, life is good, after all...
