Adventures in Retrospect


, ,

October 20, 2015
Quiet nights at home that make you realize how so much has happened this year. Fighting a family struggle. Getting over a great love. Meeting genuine people. Overwhelming work deadlines. Being inspired by mentors. Proving to self that I can get the work done. Reconnect old friendships. Loose some. Getting excited for the future. Planning out trips. Cry my heart out. Sharing my passion (my work). Realizing how proud I am of what I do. Being able to appreciate quiet days and early mornings; having good meals and good coffee. Getting kilig over men in suits. Attend weddings. Witness kids grow. Capture raw and honest intimate random moments. And being able to do this. Lord, I am overwhelmed with Your blessings. 

Best Cebu Blogs Awards 2014!

Yes it’s that time of the year again! Bloggers/ Social Media Influencers from Cebu gather and celebrate this annual event that started seven years ago. Best Cebu Blogs Awards recognizes top Blogs among the different niches: Travel, Personal, Food, Fashion & Lifestyle, Events & Entertainment and Photoblog.

The 7th Best Cebu Blogs Awards Night will be this coming December 7! Don’t forget to check the hashtags #bcbawards2014 and #cebutopblogs to check for updates and live feeds during the event :) And follow BCBA on Twitter @bcbawards.

The Best Cebu Blogs Awards is not possible without the help of the following partners and sponsors here :)

And by the way, I am one of the nominees for Fashion and Food categories. Errrr, this came as a shocker, really (like ‘whuuttt’), I haven’t been blogging (-blogging per say) for a couple of months now. But anyhow, Thank youuu, for the opportunity :) This actually made miss blogging even more.

I am humbled ^_^

Life lately, an update of some sort.

In between Mondays and work life almost always in transit, having a six-hour sleep is a total bliss! I could probably count a hundred energy-draining-time-consuming demands this job involves, but when you love what you are doing, you find myself absorbed and lost in a world you call home, not work. Public Health Service isn’t something I dreamed of when I was a kid; I wanted to be an Engineer or a Private Doctor; but somehow, life managed to bring me here, somewhere fulfilling and (more than that) magical :)

I’ve been meaning to write lately, but every time I find myself sitting in front of my laptop, I almost come up blank, the inspiration/motivation comes up a little harder to brew that I seem to have hit that wall once again wherein I feel just out of my element. I used to be good at this, or at least know how it works. But for the longest time it felt as though I’m swirling aimlessly in circles, unsure of where to go, what to expect and when to stop.

In one of my late nights with Kinfolk, I found this: “In a world where everything happens way too fast, slow down, breathe, and pour yourself a scotch.” So here’s me, slowing down, taking a breath and sipping a good mojito! Just for a week though. :)

Been a while, eh? Yeah, I missed this.

9/12/2014. I lost the drive to do the things I love most, I focused on career that I forgot I needed to breathe once in a while. I find myself craving for the things I used to do. The words. The photographs. The long hours. Today I am reminded that I need to take a break and refocus; and that there is no greater inspiration than the kind you find when you surround yourself with talented, hard working people.
