Hello from Cagayan de Oro City! It is one of the unusual afternoons here in this hot city. I found out on the weather report that Mindanao is experiencing low pressure. That explains the rain so I made a hot chocolate (Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate is my new fave) and egg sandwich with overflowing cheeeeeese. Spell yuuuuuum. I am currently blogging about my Dakak Trip but the laptop is acting bitchy so I guess I’ll finish and will post it this midnight or maybe early in the morning :)
This is just a quick update of my Sunday lazy day. You know how it goes ” It’s Sunday moving is optional” and I know that a lot of you get bored every Sunday, so here I am talking to you.
Rain makes me calm, but this kind of rain scares me. Our house is small and I can hear the rain smashing our roof. This is not relaxing anymore. I’m still afraid of flash flood and tsunami. (Yes, I am paranoid like that) we live near the river and beaches that’s why I imagine things like that. *knock on the wood
This weather is making sleepy. I need to take a nap. Ok byeeeeeeee.
(Too random update)
AUGUST 13, 2014
I am having the time of my life right now where I feel so depressed. I have so many adjectives that can describe this feeling, but they are too emotional so I will leave them in my head.
I am one of those greatly misunderstood, sad to say, but even some of my friends does.
My emotion’s like a roller coaster. I experience lots of ups and downs in a day. And sometimes I always prefer to stay at home most of the time nowadays. My friends keep on asking me where am I so we can hang out, but I always have unlimited reasons to have a rain check. It’s actually funny how you can easily fool people in sms. You just write a reason add some emojis like crying or smirking and baaaam! You have a well planned alibi.
So now, I solemnly swear that my law school will be the most serious academic years of my life. I’m so happy I don’t have a love life to think about, I’m so happy that my circle of friends were focus in studies, and I’m so happy that my family is so supportive. In shaa Allah. Law school can never ever pull me down. Only Allah can change this newly found determination. #HormonalDramaQueen
I use to run Right after Magrib prayer, (that’s 6:30 PM) but now, I guess I’m gonna be changing my routine. Waking up for Subuh prayer is now more exciting knowing that there will be a running that’s gonna happen. I’m so glad that my cousin is conscious to his body. (He used to have abs) He loves running every morning so I decided to join him. Plus, it is more convenient for me since I don’t need to bring heavy loads every time I go to school. (Because I run in Sport’s Center) Add also the fact that I am a morning person. :) so huraaaaaay for #TeamSubuh bye-bye #TeamMagrib.
Training with a man is more motivating I guess. They have stronger stamina compared to girls that’s why I rarely see him take a rest which I always take as a challenge. I’m pushing my limits guys! And he knows it so he challenged me to run from Iponan to Opol and I hastily accepted the challege. (Reckless me) now, I need to maintain my palabra de honor. Lol I’m gonna blog about it sooooon. Will do it In shaa Allah by next week ;) keep posted lovely readers! Let’s get heaaaaalthy! (Naks)
If we are friends on Facebook then you probably know about my trip in Dapitan last weekend. It is just a short unwinding trip but I definitely had a blast! So I thought it would be fun if I share to you my fun and happy experience together with my friends! ;)
These super cute creatures greeted us just when we entered Fantasy Land. Maybe they heard our squeals when we saw them outside so they greeted us cheerfully, they even followed! We don’t have any idea that they were actually following us around not until we decided to take a group selfie and saw them in our background. They were also fiddling with our videos.
Can’t believe that they actually left their post just to play with us.
And can I just say that ALL of the crews of Fantasy Land were all so approachable, friendly, helpful and upbeat? I mean, we felt so special with their treatment. We didn’t ask them to take a photo of us, nor tour us. They just did it voluntarily and patiently wait for us. We thought they were expecting some tip but no they’re NOT
It’s the 5D! (poor video screencap) the best suggestion that I can give you is to sit on the front row. As in on the first line. 5D is one of my highlights. :)
And no we cannot not try the bump car! I mean come on. CAN.YOU.NOT. This is everybody’s favorite childhood ride!
And did I just tried the Bull Rider? Yes I did. Did I last? Nope. I dropped myself VOLUNTARILY.
They offer many attractions, we almost finished trying it all. It did really knocked us out so we took the train just to have a rest while still circling the amusement park.
And yep. It’s a mini train for kids. 😂🙈 Don’t judge. We are all just kids. Hahaha lol
Me trying to win the Panda stuff toy for Saharah
Djanna and Saharah trying so hard to win the Panda. They spend a lot of money for these games but they never won ANYTHING. My poor friends. Tsk. Tsk.
We were video vlogging and here is Carla sporting this kind of face. What?
Now I know why Fantasy Land is considered as one of the best horror house in Asia. I don’t know about you guys but I am soo afraid of ghosts. Add the fact that my batchmates too are the freaks when it comes to ghost… so just imagine the screams, the pulling of hair and clothes, pushing each other, dragging each other and hugging each other when we were inside the Horror House? R.I.O.T.
We were lucky enough that Saturday is actually the day where they have fireworks and musical show. I didn’t have pictures of the musical show but i’ll upload a video very very soon including the fireworks display
We saved this ride for last because we thought that it’s the best, but we didn’t felt its extremeness because of the Horror House and the 5D though
Oh and look! Saharah got a big panda on the way home!
Well, this trip in Fantasy Land knocked us out big time! But it is super duper worth it. I’ve already mentioned the best service but also want to mention their attractions. If you will happen to visit Fantasy Land then I am suggesting you to try these first before the others. 1.) 5D Cinema 2.) Horror House 3.) Phyton Ride 4.) Zimer Ride. It would be better too if you go there on Saturday so you will witness the fireworks and the musical show!
This is the first part of my short trip in Dapitan. Keep posted to the Dakak Beach Resort blog! I’m gonna share with you the view of the place, the foods and their water rides!
That’s it. Thank youuu for dropping by here in my blog! Virtual huuuuuuug.
A throwback from our short escapade in Waig :)
Amy Bloom at Book Court, 8/15/14
Hiiiiiii! You think I’d forget did you? Well, NOPE! Here is the first week of my road to losing weight. Yes, losing because my pants are too small right now and my face is excessively big, I look hilarious in photos so I decided to workout and unfollow the cravings of my monster appetite.
But before you read down below, know that this is JUST the first week. My diet is not soo strict and I still eat “some” of my cravings but in a minimal way. It’s a sign of saying bye-bye to them. And note that I ate a lot on Saturday and Sunday because I was on a short vacation which i’ll blog very very sooooon! Here’s my update! :)
Sharing with you two of my favorite classic books that I’ve read roughly around 5 years ago. I saw these books when I went home in Marawi lying peacefully together with my other books. I know that a lot of you don’t have interest in classic books because you find it boring, but, classic books are actually considered as the best books of all time! Why? Because they are laced with timeless truths. They were written so long ago, but notwithstanding the human race can relate as if it was freshly written.
I am encouraging you to read classic books. I know that it’s dull, but just try to keep flipping the pages, surely you’ll find yourself glued to the book ;)
HAPPY READING EVERYONE

So today, after so many months, I started running again! (Wohoooooo) The only difference is that, it is more fun right now compared before. I only have Eimy as my workout buddy (I am not complaining, she’s my best workout buddy “ever” )but now my co-majors are beginning to join us so yeah, it is now more motivating! I just wish though that they will remain as eager as we started. I’m confident that Eimy and I will pursue this no matter what. Haha!
And because of this ultimate come back to my “healthy living” I came up with an idea of sharing with you what we did and even eat for the whole week! I’m going to be putting up a “Get Healthy With Me” updates every week so that those of you who wants to start exercising will have some ideas. And at the same time, I will be more motivated to do a great deal of sweating since I know that I have to write something for you. Lol. Sounds great? ;)
But I will also want to say that the exercises that I will do is something that fits my lifestyle so I’m not actually sure if it’s applicable to all :( it’s mainly about Running, Zumba, and workouts. I am not into yoga anymore. I’m not even into biking and swimming :( buuuuuut you can always substitute my exercises into your passion anyway :)
See you next week! #crossfingers I hope that I can cleave to this new series in my blog! Yay! (Feelingera much). Love you beauty queens!
I’m not a die hard fan of basketball, I only knew the basics of it since I have tried studying it twice. First, when I was in highschool and the last one was during my PE 4 back when I am still a student at MSU main campus.
I don’t even memorize the teams and members of NBA nor the PBA.
But I am a die hard fan of BULLS team since, I-DON’T-KNOW-WHEN. That’s why I literally freaked out when I saw our itinerary back in US that we will go to UNITED CENTER, CHICAGO! Can you just imagine me doing those weird dance moves when I’ve read it?
And I know that they are not on their glorious days right now unlike when Michael Jordan’s with them. D.Rose too is facing the dark days of his career because of his injury (pleeeease recover soon). So yes, there’s a fat chance of my team getting the championship. Fat chance. I am very aware of that.
But I am a fan, and I won’t stop being a fan of BULLS team even if they are far away from championship because I will always be a member of #BULLSNATION
Wait! Let me first breathe! Waaaaaah! MY BLOG HAS A NEW FACE! It looks livelier and more me this time! Big big credits to my friend, Mhyra. I only asked her yesterday to start working on it and voila! It’s done! Just like a snap. I thought it will take her around a week or atleast 3 days to finish it but no, she did it for THREE HOURS! Can you believe that? I am such a lucky friend. It feels so good that I have super talented friends.
Visit her blog! Nobody knows that she has a blog but since i’m such a bad friend then I will give you her URL, its actually www.thetalkingrainbow.tumblr.com she posts super cool stuffs and travels! So if you want to see a travel blogger then she’s the queen!
P.s. I love you dear! Please don’t kill me for sharing your URL. Muah!
Do you ever have some of those days when you’re lying on your bed and realize that you don’t have nothing to do? Ofcourse you have! So how do you deal with it?
First things first, this Girl’s Night Out slash Slumber Party is not the typical night outs of the usuals. It’s not about movie marathon, shopping, spa night and anything, we pretty much do that sometimes, even do road trips and all but this blog is a night out during the Ramadhan which we’ve been practicing for quite some years now. So without some more of my lengthy introduction, let me start sharing with you what my life’s like when it’s Ramadhan and I am with them ;)
Let me introduce them first, if you know me and not a new reader here in my blog and old blogs, then you will probably recognize them… Aclamora. Yes, these monkeys are my die hard fans. Hahahhahaha Okeeeeey fine! Proper introduction! They are my gems. As cheesy as it may sound, I count them as one of my blessings. Pretty stuff. Funny stuff. Bad stuff. Random stuff. They are the Queens!
