“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” – Rumi
Currently drafting this on my phone, in the dark, with the fan on speed three with a pomegranate sheet mask on my face. Feeling super relaxed tonight, especially since its a long weekend (hooray for three day weekends!). It’s raining at the moment and the sound of the raindrops is quite soothing.
It’s already the middle of August and I’ve been so busy at work lately, but I still wanted to update you guys on my June and July, hehe. ☺ Thinking back to it now feels like it was so long ago and it’s so weird to think that in a few days Christmas songs will already be playing in the Philippines, plus I’ll be turning 24! Ekkk.
Here are a few highlights from the past two months + my random thoughts that come with it.
Blog Update: My hosting expired! I renewed it again for just a month, which gave me enough time to find another one. And after three weeks of searching and tediously checking reviews I finally decided on one. I moved my host, changed my nameservers, downloaded a backup just in case and hopefully everything should be okay from here on in.
In all honesty it’s quite a lot of work! I really don’t think people realize how much it costs or how much effort it is to run a blog. Hehehe! Anyway, everyone knows I do it cause I love it and I’m always so grateful when my friends and family like/comment on my posts or share them. ✌ makes me all fuzzy inside hehe.
Dumaguete, Negros Oriental: Here are a few photos from my family’s quick trip to Dumaguete. Ill be writing a complete post about this in the coming week so definitely watch out for it!
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it here but our tickets were actually free! Long story short, we were bumped off our return flight from Boracay to Manila and Cebu Pacific offered us P1,000 cash OR return flights anywhere in the Philippines. Evidently we chose the latter spent three days and 2 nights in Dumaguete.
Memories: If there’s one thing I’ve learnt about myself over the years it would be that I’m very sentimental, haha! I was cleaning up my room and managed to find a bunch of things that I’ve had since my primary, intermediate and high school years in New Zealand. It brought back a lot of nice memories! There were also some random things that I’ve kept like a bunch movie tickets, silly notes, even bus tickets for crying out loud, hahaha. It sounds crazy but I just couldn’t bring myself to throw those things out. Keeping these forever!
I went wake boarding for the first time ever! My friends and I originally planned to spend the day the Sinagtala in Bataan but they were fully booked for the day so we ended up here, Pradera Wake Park in Lubao, Pampanga.
I’m still contemplating whether I should write a blog about this because I don’t have much photos and I didn’t really get to tour the whole place! We spend about 2 hours here, so much fun and a lot harder than it looks hehe.
Prices are below:
1 hr – P250 || 2 hrs – P475 || 4 hrs – P595 || 8 hrs – P1,000
My latest adventure was at Masungi Georeserve! A tiring but really awesome four hour trail in Baras, Rizal. Full post is now up, check it out here ☺
