I know it’s somewhat late to post this but I’ll post it anyway. Last October, me and Ali went to Bacolod to experience Mascara Festival. It was truly a fun and extremely difficult experience. Yes you heard it right! Extremely difficult!. So what happened was, we arranged this outing for a considerable length of time and we truly can’t bear to wipe it out. Regardless of the fact that there was a tropical storm we still chose to travel. We went to North Bus terminal Saturday morning and shockingly Bacolod outings were scratched off because of the tropical storm (Like, whaaat?) It truly made me extremely upset realizing that we can’t push through with the trip we were so eager to go. Since we truly can’t simply release it, we attempted to go to South Bus terminal trusting that there will be a trip to Bacolod there. So when we arrive there, we rode a Bus going to Toledo City wanting to have the capacity to ride a ship going to Bacolod. When we arrived at Toledo City, we were informed that there’s no trip going to Bacolod and that it was wiped out. We were about to surrender yet a v-hire driver let us know that there’s a trip to Bacolod from Tabuelan port. He said he was certain in light of the fact that it’s as of now his third outing heading off to the port and that there was a trip there going to Bacolod. So we went for an hour ride. Following an hour trip going to Tabuelan, we arrived the port and it was somewhat heartbreaking since they officially ceased the trip going to Bacolod because of the storm. They said that they’ll be continuing the trip most likely tomorrow morning. So since we’re already there, we simply spent the night there and chose to wake up ahead of schedule to check if there will be a trip going to Bacolod. It’s fortunate there’s a shabby space for rent in the place.

So then we woke up at an early hour the following morning, they now continued the trips although there was just a little delay. We landed at Escalante port so we just rode a Bus going to Bacolod terminal. It was at that point around 7pm when we landed at the terminal and it was raining. So then we just took a taxi setting off to the spot where we will be staying.
We arrived at the spot around 8PM so then we had dinner then went out for a bit. It’s never past the point where it is possible to experience Mascara celebration, is it? There were road parties simply like amid Sinulog in Cebu. In spite of the fact that I can truly say that Sinulog is more enjoyable and wild. So anyway, we truly appreciated the night, in any event.

We woke up at a young hour the following morning to go to the well known “The Ruins”. That is truly one of our bucketlist so ACHIEVE!
Anyway, the place was really stunning! It’s beautiful! Some even chose it was their wedding or birthday receptions.
We did not really staylong because we still have to go home since we have work that night.
But the struggle did not end there. On our way home, we rode a motorcycle from The Ruins to terminal. The bus left the terminal around 12. When we get to the port, we were told that all trips were cnacelled due to the storm (Again??). We were advised to transfer to another port because there’s trip going to Cebu there (Again??!). The driver then told all the passengers that if we wanted to transfer to other port, then we have to pay additional 100php. All passengers agreed so we then travelled an hour to transfer to another port. When we get there, there really was 1 ferry that will go to Cebu, although it was delayed but at least there is. We already left the port around 7pm. We arrived at North Bus terminal around 3am.
The trip was really a struggle but it was really worth it!

It’s the KWIN’S Birthday!!

CYMERA_20140524_113846‘Isn’t that so lovely and stunning?! Yeah I know it is and this is so real, I’m not in a dream land or something. This is in Imperial Palace Cebu.

The place is really highly recommended and a must visit place. It’s  located in Maribago, Mactan Island, Cebu Philippines. The resort is around 10-15 from the airport and 30-40 minutes to Cebu City proper.

Too bad I was not able to spend more time with them cause I left early because I have to go to summer sunscream. 😦

Cebu Signature Models Fashion Show

On my previous post I talked about joining CSM modeling workshop. The last part of the workshop, just like any other workshop is an event to show what we learned from the workshop.

We had our fashion show last April 25 at Jcenter mall with of course the workshop finishers and some of the CSM models. The show was really successful, many people watched and I’m sure they enjoyed. The event was not just a plain fashion show cause there were performances from CSM talents. We had 2 outfit changes, 1 was apparels from Kwin Concept shop which is owned by our very own Miss Kwin Cabahug-Kim and the 2nd outfit was our cut and styled shirt.

Cut and Style 2014

You see how people are so stylish during sinulog, wearing stylish, colorful tops with the sinulog t-shirt print. That is because of the Island souvenirs Cut and Style campaign. That started last year and I can really see how successful it is with my favorite blogger , Kryz Uy as the ambassador.

This is their 2nd year and they had the Cut and style fashion show at SM northwing. And I am so lucky that 1 of the event organizer, Tatiana Agustin is my friend and she lets me in. I was so happy to see 2 of my favorite bloggers Kryz Uy and Laureen Uy.

SINULOG! HAH! MUSHAGIT UG KUSOG!. oh yeah its sinulog 2014! aside from the parade of floats with the stars , one thing that cebuanos look forward to is the street party!!!.

People at the street drinking, singing, dancing.. having FUN! This is really something that I always look forward. Almost all young people will be around Mango ave. durng sinulog so you got to see a lot of people.

I was with my college friends first then my workmates after. It was a whole lot of fun from morning til night.

Mountain View in Cebu

Party-til-we-drop, food, fun, REDhorse! haha, yeah its Jasons birthday again! however, this time, its different cause he chose to celebrate it in Mt. view nature park. NATURE PARK? yes, you heard it right! not at the bar this time. hahaha (Jason is a party person thats why Im saying this. hehe). Its my first time there, and yeah, call me a loser but thats the truth. I know its just near the office but I never had the chance to go there.

cebu

cebu1The place is sooooooooooo OH MY GOD! super nice. For people who really appreciate nature, this is really a place to be. We rode motorcycle going there and I was really overwhelmed by the view. Its even cloudy that time, how much more when its sunny. When you go there, prepare a jacket specially if its during cold days cause it’s really freezing cold.

We arrive at around 10 am or 11 but the pool is still close so we decided to prepare the food first. While kat and Justin is so busy preparing the food, we were also very busy taking pictures, hehehe, as expected.

After we grilled the fish and meat we went back to the pool to check if its already open, and luckily, yes its open.

Entrance fee for the pool is P100 and table is only P150.

Make Your Own Havaianas 2013

1Flip flop fever is on with the Make your Own Havaianas 2013. This is really one of the most anticipated event this year, especially by those flip flop fans. It’s really more fun than choosing pair of slippers readily made because this time, you have the opportunity to choose your sole and strap color with matching pins.

This is really my favorite pair but the color is no longer available 😦

Speaking of pins, I was very lucky because I won the 2 complementary pins from Doyzkie Buenaviaje’s I Luv Cebu promo. I just liked the post about MYOH 2013 and whoaaaala! I won the 2 complementary pins.

My friend Dian from the MYOH staff made my pairs and she helped me choose the colors for the sole and strap and helped me choose my pins as well. I so wish to be part of the MYOH 2014, soon.

The Few and the Proud!

11481_10200194720570181_1892172249_nAt work, we have this “battle” between teams called “MyQuality Cup” and whoever wins will have their team outing wherever they want,but within the budget of course.
To make the long story short, we won (weeeee! ). So we decided to have it in Agus Hotel, located in Agus Lapu-lapu City. The place was nice and their pool was really big.

a1 There’s more or less 30 of us including our the Facilitators, and the partners of some of our team mates. Facilatators were the PMax Team with Sir Ronan (Manager), We were with our Team Lead, Kai with her boyfriend Kenneth, our PA, Johnbelle and our coach’s wife with his very cute bay. So we all were there by around 9 and we started eating by 10am. We then started the activity by around 11 and we started it with a game. after the game, we had a the “how well do you know me” activity. We have a paper in our back and it has 2 parts. 1st is “what you like about me” and the 2nd part was the “what you dont like about me”.

a2After we had the activities, some of the Facilitators went home but the rest of us had swimming. It really was a TEAM BUILDING activity I must say. We really had so much FUN.

How to go to Agus Hotel? There are more ways to get there. If your from downtown area, you can ride a jeepney going to SM city Cebu, from SM, you can either ride a van going to lapu-lapu or ride a jeepney going to Hi-way Mandaue and from Hi-way Mandaue you have to ride a jeepney going to Lapu-lapu. I suggest to go with the van because it’s comfortable and you only have to pay 30php.
If you go with the van, you have to stop at either Tamiya or at Mactan Doctors Hospital. From there, you can just ride a Tricycle going to Agus Hotel. If you go with the jeepney from SM to Lapu-lapu, you have to go down to Tamiya then ride a tricycle going to Agus. So easy… isn’t it?
