Happy 150th, Gat Jose Rizal!

How did you love us?
Let me count the ways.

You have taught us to channel the strength
of our youth to stand and make a difference.

You have freed our minds,
with your pen as your weapon.

  You have inspired us with your life and your works;
your nationalism and your passion for this country.

May your legacy live forever,
Dr. Jose Protacio Mercado Rizal y Alonzo Realonda.

Where was I?

I apologize for the slow pace my blog has taken for quite a while. Maybe you’ve heard through Twitter, or personally from me, or have read it here in my blog, that I’ve been reviewing for the upcoming nursing board exams on July 2-3. And it is the reason why I’ve slowed down a bit (but, I think I made it well so far that I post at least once a week, squeezing in between reviews.) But worry not. Because when all of these are done, I’ll be back with more photos, more events, and a whole lot more. I really miss going to places and just shooting whatever I see, going to events, meeting people, and of course, blogging all about them. This is a phase that I think everyone has to go through. It will be rough in the coming last two weeks of tthe review, so I ask you to bear with me.

I hope you keep the love, everyone of you! Thanks for dropping by, reading my posts, and leaving a comment every once in a while. While you’re at it, check out some of the posts I put up for some contests. Please do spend a couple of seconds to LIKE the posts. It is much appreciated, as always! I’ll be frank about it though. I really, as in really, want to win, not just the prizes, but the experience I can get from being a winner-featured blogger/photographer-intern at Juice.ph. Maybe this is the break I am wanting to get. And of course, all for this blog and you guys who support and read this blog. (Kinda cheesy, but it’s all true!)

Thanks in advance! Always tune in for more!

P.S. What’s the connection of the picture above? Before I went home, I dropped by Toast Box to have tea and toast while I answer my practice questionnaires. I was in the middle of the long couch, and I have this thing for corners when I’m in a restaurant or cafe. When a bunch of adolescents were done, they moved the table which is supposedly in the corner. I have to arrange it back so I can settle in my corner. I moved the plates, and I missed to see a saucer and it fell on the floor and broke. I asked the waitress what can I do to compensate, but she just smiled at me. I guess she really didn’t know what to say, also. So instead, I just bought another tall glass of Nanyang milk tea and even left a note to give to their manager, saying if I can really do anything (because I am really embarrassed for breaking their China.) This post is to say how accommodating and really kind people in Toast Box are. Thanks and I’ll be dropping by more often!
