The Beauty of Camiguin

Way back in college, I dreamt of going to Camiguin. Cebu Pacific gave us the perfect opportunity when we were able to book ourselves a roudtrip ticket to Cagayan for only 300 pesos. It was a long wait, but well worth the trip.

Cagayan airport

We landed in Cagayan airport, where my husband's cousin picked us up at the airport and treated us to a nice dinner. He then checked us in a hotel. The following day, he picked us up from the hotel to go to his dad's office, had a Chinese buffet lunch and then off to Camiguin we went.
It was already night time when we arrived in the island. We checked in Jasmine by the Sea, and rented a motorcycle the following morning to tour the island.Camiguin is just 64 kms in circumference, you could really just tour the island in a day. Armed with a map given to us by the caretaker of the resort, we toured the island stopping whenever we see a tourist attraction.

The ride itself is a joy! To our right was the sea, and to our left was the picturesque Mt. Hibok-hibok. Not to mention that it was the first time that my husband and I had ridden in motorcycle together.A view by the resort

Camiguin island is a paradise. It's a must-see for every nature lover.

The Start of Summer: Tambuli Beach Resort

We couldn't put up with the heat any longer. And the kids have been begging us to go somewhere cool and fun, a.k.a beach or pool so we decided to check out Tambuli Beach Resort.
It's a 30-minute drive from home. We didn't have to prepare early (like we do when we go out of town). That's the beauty of living in Cebu, everything is within reach.

We opted to stay in Tambuli West because it has several pools, of several sizes where the kids can just lounge and enjoy. However, they were preparing for a wedding reception there, thus they didn't have buffett. We went to Tambuli East for the buffet, and enjoyed the sand and the sea there as well. (Tambuli West does not have a nice shoreline, unlike the East.)
Entrace is PhP350, although PhP 300 is consumable. But if want to go for the buffet which is at PhP450, you have to shell out another Php150, but the food is really worth the price though.

I'm Going to Make it Work

So....I started the new year on positive note. I claimed that I will accomplish the goals I've set for this year and kick some habits that are not helping get to where I want to get. Also, I said "Yes" to a life-altering offer. I know it would mean more office hours, more stress, more responsibilities, but I'm aiming for greater rewards. I'm in for greater things...

To be honest, I don't really know what I will write. I'm just trying to stick to my promise that I will be updating my blogsite every so often. I just wanted to ram into the keyboard and rant, rant and rant, even though I couldn't make out of what I'm saying. There are somethings about my work that I'm not allowed to share to the rest of the world due to confidentiality agreement so in as much as I want to blow up and vent out here, I couldn't. I almost got into trouble once because of doing that, and I'm not going to go that way again. But anyway, will just sleep coz I will be going back to the office in a few hours.

Cebu Pacific On Promo

Cebu Pacific is having a seat sale again. They are giving 50% discount on all domestic and international flights. Buying period is between Jan 6 - 8, 2010, and travel period is between Feb 1 - April 30, 2010. If you have plans on travelling between these dates, I strongly suggest you take advantage of this promo. As for me, I have resolved to stay put and save up for my Hongkong trip although my heart is dying to go to Manila to see my brand-new nephew. Sigh!

Using my Belle De Jour Planner

Since it's a new year, I've resolved to make sure that I update my blogsite regularly. It doesn't have to be on a daily basis, but to at least tend to it from time to time like I do with Cafe World, which I already given up on.

Speaking of resolutions, I also made a list of habits to break/start for this year and I am tracking my progress using the habit tracker in my Belle De Jour Planner, a gift I receive from Daddiyah. So far, I have only missed one habit, and has been able to follow through on the list that I made. Here's hoping I remain true to my resolutions.

Another year has passed....another year to look forward to. The year 2009 has brought about a lot of wonderful memories to remember, great experiences to savor and although it was not entirely wonderful, it's been a year of learning, and beatiful in its entirety, a full color page in this book called life.

I am looking forward to the new year with delight, with excitement, with sheer anticipation. I will continue to believe that God will be faithful in His promises, and I will be confident that nothing will happen that is not in His plan for me. Above all, I will receive with an open heart all the blessings that God has in store for me.

May everyone of us welcome the new season of blessings, new season of promotion, new season of victory, new season of increase, new season of hope, and new season of peace.
