Thank You, Legazpi!

May 18-21, 2017

We traveled for almost 12 hours from Cavite to Albay just to attend our 2nd Family COnference: We Stand For Jesus.  And if you ask me how did I managed it? Of course, I have my pain reliever ready with with me.

We Stand For Jesus is something so personal for me. Something that came up to: How long could I stand for Jesus? How much strength could I give to Jesus? And in the whole conference, Jesus just reminded me to I am not standing alone, I stand with Him and also for Him.

As I stand for Jesus, I also knew that I am with my family, my Kids For Christ Family. I thank God for their humble hearts and everything feels so easy for me because of them.

Right after the conference we had the chance to stroll Legazpi. And here are some photos I wanted to share. ❤

The 156-meter high Ligñon Hill (also spelled Lingñon, pronounced as /li-NYON/) is one of Legazpi’s most famous landmarks. For years, Ligñon Hill is known only for the PHIVOLCS observatory located in its flanks and an old lighthouse on its summit. Today, it has become one of the city’s prime destinations for sightseers, adventurers and even fitness buffs.

Because we have our van with us, it was easy for us to reach the top. And there, you would see the breath-taking views of Mayon, perfect for photo-op. YOu can also see the city view from the top.

We also entered the Japanese Tunnel. But there’s nothing in there, honestly.

At the top of the hill, there are also Sili Ice Cream.

Here are some photo ops, again.

KFC Cavite goes to IKV Iloilo!!

PS: This is an old post. Retrieving from by blogspot account. But the feels are still there! 🙂

First of all, para sa mga nagsabing “Uy, bigtime! IKV Iloilo!”, this is all I have to say, “No, hindi kami bigtime, hindi biro ang ginawa naming pagiipon para sa IKV Iloilo. Hindi biro ang gumawa ng sandamakmak na articles para lang may pang plane fare. And mas lalong hindi biro ang magpaalam sa magulang ko para sa first airplane experience ko. hahaha.” We are all just driven by our passion for our service. We just felt God’s grace by making this IKV Iloilo experince possible. It took a lot of faith struggles before we finally come up with “Yes! nakabook na tayo! g na talaga!”

December pa lang, pinaghandaan ko na to. Niregaluhan ko pa nga si Joyce ng alkansya para makapagipon na kami. Naka ilang “Ano, magkano pa kulang natin?”, “Abang pa tayo ng murang fare” at “pano na tayo?” hahaha. Indeed, God never left our side.

So here goes our journey.

I have my two very mission buddies, A and Joyce. May 1, Friday lumipad na kami paIloilo. Yes! haha.

From Iloilo Airport, ang tagal pa pala ng byahe para makarating sa mismong venue. pero ayos lang. It is all worth it. Pagkarating namin, kinuha lang namin yung ID namin then punta na kami to respective committees namin. And as usual, nasa Docu Team ako. haha.

And since wala pa din naman masyadong ginagawa, chill muna with my docu buddies.

Finally, I had my photo with this Love Project drop. yey!!

Sorry not sorry, but kids’ faces are my fave subject! These are all mine. And I am so honored that these photos are posted in KFC Page. First time ko lang kasi magDocu sa International event. hahaha. Kaya tuwang tuwa pa ako.

Docu buddies!

Second Day! Para makapunta sa venue galing sa accomodation namin, kelangan muna namin mag trisikad. hahaha. tricycle na side car!

Relaxing with Docu buddies. haha. Sobrang epic, kasi tumakas kami since workshop time pa naman and wala masyadong idodocu, so nagMoonleaf Tea muna kami. Dahil takas lang kami, we didn’t expect na makakasalubong din namin dun ang program team. haha. IN short we all had a sweet escape. I also think that we deserve a short relaxing moment. haha.

Wait, syempre. Paselfie muna akoooo!

Highlights of the IKV magazine! Proud photog here! yey!!

KFC ROCK Cavite Team!!

Before bidding goodbyes to my docu buddies!!

Sisters trip! hahaha. Hi JOyce and ate Wating!

Birthday ng loving coordinator ng Cavite. ❤

Hello from KFC Cavite!!!

Not just the IKV but also God’s messages from each and every one of us. We are moved. We are pumped to love more! Horay for this mission! Thank You Lord for the gift of mission, friends, family and LOVE!!!

I love You, Lord!!!

Pampangga Trip 2017

Hello! It’s been long since I wrote something about travels. I occassionaly write before, but during my tumblr and blogspot days. And since I have my wordpress account already, I might as well write often, I do hope I had tone of time to do it.

So, for years I always wanted to watch the Hot Air Balloon Festival. I guess, God really delayed it so I can go there with my love.

Me and my workmates planned everything but as usual travel, not everything that was planned happened.

We arranged it thru travel agency, it was cheap, for only PHP 800, we can avail, Van for roundtrip to Pampangga + Entrance Fee to Hot Air Balloon and Sandbox + Side trip to Sky Ranch.

The original IT was, meet at SM Bacoor by 11pm. But the agency failed to meet us and said that the van they rented has back out. So thankfully, our officemate had a contact for a van rental, so we proceed. Also thankfully, we had our tickets by us already a week before.

We arrived Pampangga by 2am. It was a quick travel, but the gate was still closed. By 3am, we were lined up. And believe me, if you are trying to go there with a baby, or child, back out from that plan. There were too many people, it was almost stampede. We get in by 4am, and the show starts by 5:30, sunrise. So we had the chance to sleep first.

Since we were too early, we got the front seat and we really enjoy the watch because it was too close.

There was a DJ announcing of what is happening there, I learned that Hot Air Ballons really depends on the air, the best time to take off is before sunrise, wind is calm and everything is perfect for the hot air. But some hot air balloons didn’t have the chance to take off, they encountered problems because of the wind. There are international hot air balloons that came to PH just for this festival.

The whole festival was fun, you can really enjoy it if you have long patience because of too many people.

I hope I can show you all the photos, but I can just upload my phone and action cam photos. Photos from my Nikon cam were not still copied.

After the balloons had been take off, we decided to go out and proceed to the next stop, the Sandbox. But I am really telling you, our path to exit was not easy. Dust. Stampede. Shoulder to shoulder. It came to the point that I don’t need to walk anymore, I can just go on with flow. Plus, portalets are horrible. My officemate took 45mins in line just to pee.

So there, on our way to Sandbox, we were exhausted. We are about to eat lunch, but we don’t want to end up by eating at Jollibee, so we decided to find something else while on our way to Sandbox.

S-A-N-D–B-O-X

A place of people fallung in line for everything. We fall in line for the entrance, for the CR, for food, and all.

And here, we end up going back, retreating from Sandbox. And eat in a Korean Restaurant.

I am not a fan of Kfood, but yes, it became my favorite now.

SAMGYUPSAL.

We had it for only 250php, unli samgyupsal already. Unli pork, unli sidedish, unli icetea, plus an icecream for dessert. It’s all worth it.

I thank my boyfriend for being expert in these kind of food. He was born in Japan, and learned for to use chopstick first before spoon and fork.

A shot of soju, of course. You wouldn’t want to eat in Krestau without trying their drink. This thing has been my favorite since then.

And this, this was my sight after soju drink. Hahaha. Kidding. It was just blur from the camera.

image

And we went home already.

If you think this was a boring trip, NO.
All may not happened according to the plan, buuuut, I enjoyed it with good collegues and with my love. It was memorable because February was love month, and our anniversary month.

That’s it!!!

I will surely upload all for photo dump of the Pampangga Trip 2017!!
