Beautiful Cebu

How lucky I am to be able to represent Quezon City for the National Youth Council held last year at Cebu City.

Part of this, I was able to see and unravel the majestic beauty of Cebu! t’s long overdue, so I hope it’s worth the throwback. :p

Our first stop was the Taoist Temple located at Beverly Hills Lahug. Approximately six km from the city centre in Lahug district lies Beverly Hills, the millionaire quarter of Cebu-City. From Cebu-City you can get fairly close to the temple by an Lahug jeepney.

Atop Beverly Hills is the highly photogenic Taoist Temple of Cebu which was built in the second half of the last century.

 There is also a beautiful view of the city from this lovely place.

And this makes me want to go to China!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 

Next Stop: Pedro Calungsod Church, I love the architectural design of the church and the whole ambiance.

Third Stop, Magellan’s Cross.

Last Stop: Basilica MInore Del Sto. Nino de Cebu Pilgrim Center. I really felt bad that I wasn’t able to enter and see what’s inside the church due to the earthquake. But what amazed me is that despite of the fact that the authorities had announced that it’s quite dangerous to go here, people and devotees doesn’t seemed to be affected at all.

One Year down!

It’s funny how someone who was just a stranger last year can mean so much to you now.

How one day, there’s going to be this guy who’s going to love every bits of me. The way I smile, the way I talk, the way I nag, the way I roll my eyes and all!

And that rare-kind-of-love brings out all the best of me & had made me a better person which I am today.

Gives me enough prof to fnally believe that its really true that someone can really love me. Every little thing about me without judging me.

This guy had drag me out to my fantasy-day-dreaming about happy-ever-after. Who had opened my eyes that to have that “happy-ever-after” you need to work in your differences day by day. Never give up easily on each other. It’s not easy but it’ll be worth it.

And this guy has been with me for a year today! Can’t thank you enough for everthing! Happy Anniversary, my lovey-dovey! 😍💋

Sunshine after the rain

“Blessed are those who have a good heart to donate. Whether it is in kind, cash or their time. You, guys, had made God smile.” 💕🙏💪👊💋

Its really heartbreaking to see what had happened to our beloved country bought by typhoon Maring and the Southwest Moonson.

Thousands of families had losstheir home. Several towns were devasted. Almost 4-days of consistent heavy rain, flash floods were everywhere.

We may not had seen the sun for several days, almost lose hope. But hand in hand we had we had faced this cathastrophe with our Faith to God.

Typhoon Maring might drowned us, but its uplifting to know and see how these good-hearted people are now flooding us: From relief goods and their presence to help (Volunteers).

Now the flood had subside, and we are slowly recovering from this cathastrophe again hand in hand we will all stand with our great to God Almighty & strong belief that this too shall pass!! 🙏🙏💋

BANGON PILIPINAS! 💕👏

Woman over man! 😍

Man is the mos elevated of all creatures; Woman is the most sublime of all ideals.

God made for Man a throne, Woman an altar; the throne exalts, the altar sacrifies.

Man is the brain, woman is the heart. The brain enlightens, the heart loves. Light illuminates, love revives.

Man is a genius, Woman is an angel. A genius is immeasurableand angel is indefinable. A genius contemplates the indefinite, an angel admiresthe unutterable.

The aspiration of man is the supreme glory. The aspiration of Woman is the extreme virtue. To obtain glory, man does what is grand, to acquire virtue, Woman does what is divine.

Man has the supremacy, Woman, the preference; Supremacy signifies strength, preference represents right.

Man is strong in reasons, Woman is invincible in her tears; Reason convinces the most stubborn, tears soften the hardest of mortals.

Man is the symbol of heroism, Woman of martyrdom. Heroism ennobles, martyrdom sublimes.

Man is the temple, Woman is the sanctuary. To the temple we revere, the sanctuary we kneel.

Man thinks, Woman dreams. To think is to recollect is to recollect the past or to reason the present, to dream is to anticipate the future.

Man is the ocean, woman is the lake. The ocean contains the pearl that beautifies, the lake contains the poetry that dazzles.

Man is the eagle that flies, Woman is the lark that sings. To fly is to occupy space, to sing is to conquer the soul.

Man pursues the goal of his conscience, woman follows the star of hope. Conscience guides, hope perserves.

Man is placed where the earth ends, woman is placed where heaven begins.

Lastly, it takes a thousand men to build an encampment but a woman alone can build a home.

Now, who says then that woman is inferior to man?
