Cabilao Island Adventure – First Of Summer 2017

One of the most popular island of Bohol is Cabilao Island, It is located in the western portion of the main island and along Cebu Strait. It is one of the smaller Philippine Islands, and approximately 8 square kilometers where a peaceful community lives. What is more facinitating about this island is actually lies beneath it. It is famous for its marine sanctuary, with its steep wall of coral reefs that has been a habitat for several marine species. 

Couple of friends and I embarked to yet again another summer escapade to this amazing island, and by that I meant; a day in the sea, crystal clear water, unlimited sun bathing and of course close contact with fishes and some other sea creature.

Can’t take my eyes off the view

All set for the underworld (disclaimer: this is not mine😪😖😫)

Excited for the amazing adventure ahead of us

Certified Openwater Diver – Achievement Unlocked 

Feeling cool underwater

Finally! I was able to ticked scuba diving off my bucket list, and I loved every single minute of it. I loved it so much that I decided to work on being certified as an open water scuba diver (work in progress).

And so in the next couple of weeks (or months) depending on my availability, I will be doing a series of diving sessions and I can’t hide my excitement 😜. Ticking off scuba  diving is one thing, but getting certified is just a whole lot more.

I felt so close with nature

I’m finally done with all my scuba diving sessions and now I can proudly say I am a licensed scuba diver, it was a pretty fast process but every minute of it is very memorable. After six scuba diving sessions, I was able to cover all the necessary lessons and skills needed to get certified. I do admit though that I still need constant diving sessions for me to be able to really be comfortable being in the underwater world and pretty excited for the next coming scuba diving the in future.

Island living – being born in Cebu is surprisingly a very big advantage for me at this point, nearest diving spot is just an hour away and recently it had became one of my favorite hangout place. I am becoming more and more in love with scuba diving and now I am embracing the fact that I am in the truest meaning, an island girl.

Memories Of You

I was cleaning my room when i saw a shoe box of our memories, i wonder if we ever bump into each other again, should i ask you “do you remember how crazy we were for each other?” how i adored the natural glow in your skin and the love in your eyes every time i said your name and kissed your cheeks, that chubby cheeks, i remembered. all i ever wanted was to hold your hand every single minute of ever single day even when i was working i imagined myself holding your hands. your hands that held my lungs my bones my heart.. every piece of my living. i lived for you. remember? how i grew into you and you grew into me. remember? you were like my favorite sweater i never checked if you fit i just wore you every single day and pretended you look so good on me. remember our planned adventures? that no matter how life threatening it could be as long as there’s you and me we’d cheat death and breathe for each other. and once upon a time i use to draw one thousand maps on your back while you’re asleep and each map will lead us back home to each other but now that home smells like burning and im sill learning how not smell you in every cup of coffee and in every vanilla scented room. i still remember you when im making cheesecakes or making business plans. i still needed you to be there for me and call me when things get so cranky. but in the end you held my tears like they were salt on your wounds, promises not kept, every time i wept it’s for everything, between our first kiss and me scrapping your shattered love songs on the floor sobbing, begging please.. we got this let’s just give it one more chance. we can get through this. if you don’t believe me look at the scars i carved on my own skin to remind me that blood is nothing compared to heartbreak. but you looked at me loveless and with shotgun words you killed me there. i learned that when your heart broke faster than the speeding bullet it hurts a whole lot more than a hundred bombs exploding. and if id ever be given a chance to tell how i felt id tell you i love you and mean it for the very last time. and with and smile on my face and the love in my heart i wish you all the happiness i could never give. #letter #forgivemefordoingthis

Trek To The Trail of the Past


A trek to memory trail: Living for younger years. My childhood memories;

1)I can vividly remember how my friends and I, used to trek these mountains in search for fruit bearing trees during summer.
2) How we would climb trees after trees with a jug full of water to quench our thirst.
3) How we would run as fast as we could as soon as we saw a tree full of ripe fruits.

4) How we would trek to a destination we weren’t really sure of, yet still follow our guts. Come to think of it, it was kind of amazing how we never really got lost along our way, or if we ever did, we always find a way back to where we started.
5)Back then, province life was so simple yet so memorable.

Reminiscing my younger years brings smile to my lips and a sparkle in my eyes. Those were the moments when we never knew about life’s harshness or how reality’s a bitch. We were kids back then, we were young, wild, and carefree. Ow well still am, but difference is that I am aware of the reality. Province life, laid back living, whatever you call it, I will always be very proud of my roots, where I came from, and the memories I made during those childhood years.

That One Moment To Remember

One fine Saturday night, when the sky so clear and the moon so bright.
With a bottle in one hand and mouth full of chips, I sat there on the sand as I reached on the warmth of the bonfire.

I just sat there in utter silence, just feeling the moment.
I closed my eyes and heard the waves from the shore, the distant barking of dogs, some reggae music playing from afar, and tree leaves while the wind swayed its branches.

I took a deep breath, held it for a bit; released it harshly and told myself, “This is a great Life, this kind of experience is one of those moments that should be remembered. When difficulties arise, this will be one of my happy thoughts”.

And then I opened my eyes, patted myself on the shoulder saying, “enough drama time for some interaction”. I stood up, gave one last glance to where I seated and smiled. “That right there is a moment to remember”.Went back to my friend waiting for yet again another drinking sesh. Indeed, a night to remember.

Song Review : Getting a Deeper Meaning to the Song “Into the Blue” by Sarah Jackson-Holman

Artist : Sara Jackson-Holman
Song : Into The Blue
Album : When You Dream

If only if only I coulda been yours
Been your rapport and yours to adore
If only if only I would’ve said yes
Forgotten the rest oh I could’ve said yes
If only if only you’d ask me again
I’d give you my hand
Let you take me
across the sand

Into the blue
And faded world of my daydreams
I feel I’m falling deeper everyday
Melting away down a dark and endless abyss
I’m grasping at straws and I’m chasing the wind
As I fall on my face over and over again
If only if only I had the luxury of retrospect
Sounds like you’re speaking some sort of foreign dialect
If only something precious as time had a price
Instead of endlessly taking its toll on my soul
Oh so many if onlys running through my mind
What ifs and storybook endings time after time
If only if only you coulda been mine
I’d take you

Into the blue
And faded world of my daydreams
I feel I’m falling deeper everyday
Melting away down a dark and endless abyss
I’m grasping at straws and I’m chasing the wind
As I fall on my face over and over

Into the blue
And faded world of my daydreams
I feel I’m falling deeper everyday
Melting away down a dark and endless abyss
I’m grasping at straws and I’m chasing the world
As I fall on my face over and over again

Meaning to the Song- Come Back To Me By David Cook

Come Back To me by David Cook

You say you gotta go and find yourself 
You say that you’re becoming someone else
Don’t recognize the face in the mirror
Looking back at you

You say you’re leaving
As you look away
I know theres really nothin left to say
Just know i’m here
Whenever you need me
I’ll wait for you

So i’ll let you go
I’ll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you
come back to me

Take your time i wont go anywhere
Picture you with the wind in your hair
I’ll keep your things right where you left them
I’ll be here for you

Oh and i’ll let you go
I’ll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you come back to me
And i hope you find everything that you need
I’ll be right here waiting to see
You find you come back to me

I can’t get close if your not there
I can’t get inside if theres no soul to bear
I can’t fix you i can’t save you
Its something you have to do

So i’ll let you go
I’ll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you come back to me
Come back to me

So i’ll let you go
I’ll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you come back to me

And i hope you find everything that you need
I’ll be right here waiting to see
You find you come back to me
When you find you come back to me
When you find you come back to me
When you find you come back to me
