A Year Ago

YES! It’s been almost a year ago since my last post here. I was soooooooooooo busy with school, and life, and sleeping that I couldn’t update this even after all the places I’ve been. Gosh. I suck at blogging. A year without  blogging does that I guess.

So to start 2014, I’m gonna show you the church me and my mom went to for 9 mornings for the Misa de Gallo last December 16, 2013 to December 24, 2013. It’s the Santo Nino de Cebu Church in Binan, Laguna.

It’s a nice church and it’s sorta in the middle of nowhere and the closest commercial place is McDonald’s so you won’t get tempted to leave the place in the  middle of the mass or not pay attention. Beside it is Colegio San Agustin where I studied for a year (2nd grade). The place is very big and so is the church. During Misa De Gallo, there were no kids, teenagers that were doing stuff that are inappropriate so there’s also that.

Overall, it was a nice experience going to mass there for the first time. I couldn’t take a lot of pictures since my mobile phone is a bit unstable that time so this is the only one I got. Try and visit the church guys, it’s really nice and peaceful.

Home Is Where the Heart♥ Really Is!

About three years ago, my mom together with my two siblings and including me had to transfer houses. It was a family matter I would rather keep to myself. We transferred to my grandma’s house in the country/province side and I had to say goodbye to the home I grew up in, in the city.

It was HELL. I had no friends, no places to hang out, the phone and internet reception was below acceptable and there were no stores that sell my stuff! (anime, books, art stuff). I hated it. I also had to transfer schools and I had to switch majors. It was the only good thing that happened to me, switching majors. It was a course that I wanted. It was cheaper in my current school so I had to grab that opportunity although my graduation time got delayed.

Anyways, I got home sick. Until now I still get home sick. I long for the days in my old home. My REAL home. I miss it so much! So what I do is I sneak out every time class is dismissed early, ride a bus, and visit my dad and my home. I just lie down on my bed and absorb all the good vibes in that room of mine. After that, I always go for ice cream and walk around at the bay side fifteen minutes away from my home. The sunset the last time was beautiful!

This is one of my favorite travel adventures. Beside the excitement of sneaking out, it gives me the feeling of those rpg games that I have this mission to do and I need to reach my goal to get my prize. My prize? Inner peace and good vibes. I’ll be travelling here again sometime this week. Hopefully class gets dismissed early lotsa times! XD

Sunset and Good Vibes

My Heart: Longing

It’s been awhile people! For this first post of 2013 I’m going to let you in on one of my secrets! *cue people making the “oooh” sound*

Okay. So, everybody has their dream travel destination right? Some part of oneself has this longing for a certain place whether found on Earth or outside the final frontier. So you guessed it, I’m gonna tell you my dream destination for travel. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been fascinated by this country. The very culture and how they live day by day intrigues me and the worst part is, it’s the most difficult country to enter!

Oh how my heart longs for dear ol’ Japan. 281075w7632x3esc

Japan, for me, has the most amazing culture there is in Asia. Don’t get me wrong, I am not ashamed of my own culture and heritage. Japan has this certain pull on me that makes my heart long for something I haven’t seen and experienced.

You’re probably asking, “What is it with Japan anyways? Didn’t they try to get your country?” Past is past, as they say. (This should have been some sort of a joke. A funny line but it was messed up. It was so funny in my brain though.) To answer your very good question…

I don’t know.

To tell you the truth, I really don’t know why Japan appeals to my taste too much BUT… just to show you some hint of Japan, lemme ask Mister Google for some pictures of some places in Japan I long to visit:

This is Tokyo, Japan. It’s the most busiest place, they say and it’s also the most beautiful at night. If I were there right now, I would just walk around with my umbrella and see the lights! A friend of mine says the lights are amazing at night!

Another thing that I have set my eyes on when I plan my travel to Japan would be the very famous CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL!

Judging by the pictures Mister Google showed me, this festival is very beautiful. Just look at that kimono and cherry blossoms! Oh  my! It really makes my heart ache seeing it only in a picture.

Last but not the least, something we OTAKU consider as “Heaven on Earth” …The famous HARAJUKU of Japan:

Everything Anime is in here. Not to mention cool “Harajuku Fashion” for Anime and Japanese Fashion enthusiasts (err… someone like yours truly ^_^).

*SIGH*

How I long to visit the country of Japan! It’s just amazing how a simple mention of anything related to Japan makes my heart beat faster. This is really one of my secrets. I don’t really like telling secrets but I guess it’s a good way to start the year 2013~ I hope everyone prays for me so I can finally reach one of my dream travels!

Ja~ 🙂
