"Life is all about doing the things that make you happy, not the things that please other people.

Introducing: An Island Paradise in the province of Leyte- CANIGAO ISLAND!!!
Canigao Island is one of the hidden Gem in the Island of Leyte. Once known as the fisherman's sanctuary in the municipality of Matalom. The island has become a major tourist destination in Eastern Visayas since 2005 and has gained overwhelming popularity recently. It is an islet with white sand beach. 

Every vacation my family won't miss to visit this island. It's very affordable and the right place to enjoy family reunions and weekend getaways especially on summer.

Let's get it stated!

 Cousins with love!!

We definitely love this Island!!

Bye for now CANIGAO!! Be back soon :)

Journey Home

"Safety is not a gadget but a state of mind."

I will share to you our last day in the City of Love and our experience going home.

Our convention has come to an end. It ended by giving certificates, awards and token of participation and appreciation to the participants.

We already got a ticket. We are going to ride a ship....fingers crossed that we can go home safely because the news came out that there is a typhoon coming.

We packed our bags bringing all our pasalubongs and we're ready to go!!
First stop, SM City Delgado..since our departure time is 6pm and we left the resort at we still have a time to enjoy Iloilo City.

Now were finally on board in Trans Asia Shipping... 

This is my bed bank..we choose to have a tourist room for our accommodation.. Inside the room, we got 8 beds and a small flat screen television where you can watch movies.
Outside our accommodation..there where many our tourist rooms.. The rooms were not too big nor too's just okay though..for me.. 
I also went to see their upper deck where you can see the life boats and feel the breeze of the ocean.

The news report earlier said that there will be a typhoon coming..fingers crossed that we will all be safe in this journey home.
Hello there Sir Patty..he's been accompanying me in my on board tour.

In the end, my experience was totally fun, informative and memorable with my College of Teacher Education Family.

Steps to Enjoy Life that leads to Holiness and Wholeness

"God wants us to be blessed."

God knows that we cannot live a truly happy life without him working in our lives. I will share to you the six steps to enjoy life that leads to holiness and wholeness. This was presented during our PAFTE Convention in Iloilo City.

I hope you will learn something from this. Let's get it on!!

1. Live your life loving people.

Everybody loves a humble person.
Life is short. Cut out negativity, forget gossip, say goodbye to people who hurt you. Spend your days with the people who are always there.

2. Never take revenge.
Revenge is self-destructing. It will consume you till you are exhausted of every bit goodness in your heart.
If you take revenge, the first thing you kill is usually your own happiness.
"Hurting people would hurt people more."

3. Always keep in mind that you are blessed.
Probably this is one truth that you should hold deeply in your mind and heart. Nothing on earth can take this away from you.
Meditate on it, think about it, profess it, and declare it! Do this until your whole being is soak into this truth.
Many of us do not receive our blessings because we are too busy envying what other people is enjoying.

4. Establish an amicable speech pattern.
Right speech is crucial in attracting God's blessing and practically a good life.
The tongue can attract positive or negative life depending on what comes from it.

5. Always seek the good of others.
The Lord will never prosper the people who seek to make others suffer. He cannot be an accomplish to evil. Remember, God plans good things to those who plans good things for others.
"A bad attitude is like a flat tire. You can't go anywhere until you change it."

6. Protect your heart from hurt.
Exert all the efforts to avoid pain and hurt no matter how true or false the words people are throwing against you.
Never let anybody rob you of your joy. Celebrate your life! Rehearse your blessings not your pains.
Never trust your tongue when your heart is bitter.

The Lord promise that He will always listen to your prayers.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and nor to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all you heart."
-Jeremiah 29: 11-13

God Bless Loves!!!

'Till next adventure then.
