Happy Birthday, Ella!

Dec 2, 2012, 2:27 PM

Last weekend, two of my best college friends and I went to a short-notice, unplanned Tagaytay roadtrip. So understood that I had my Friday full to the brim with events and stuff to do, I still pushed through with the trip in ol’ fashioned Jonver style – zero sleep, 100% caffeine. It was worth the trip, especially it was Ella’s birthday and we really wanted to do something crazy. And it’s Ella’s only day off from the hospital (she’s a nurse at St. Luke’s) so Hanna and I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to celebrate.

The clouds were so lovely that day, and even if my palpitations still haunt me up to this day, I’d still say it was a nice day. I wish to be back there with someone special who’s not currently talking to me :(

Okay, this is Ella’s moment. No spoiling that. Happy birthday again Ella! To more roadtrips!!!

And Hanna, please upload our Dawson’s Creek inspired photos. Pretty pleeeeeeeease?? Hehe :)

Bicol Day 1

So you all know that I was invited to Legazpi City to talk about blogging and social media. My talk was scheduled at 16th, but I decided to go a day before to meet my friend Franzy and go tour around town.


I arrived at the city just in time for the opening of the workshop. I dropped by first to say hello to the organizers and I also met some of the other speakers. I was dead nervous to see all the students who would listen to me the next day.

The Workshop was graced by seasoned author and proud advocate of the Bicol language, Mr. Abdon “Jun” Balde, Jr. He recited to the audience a poem he made titled, “It’s A Weird Wired World” The original was in Bicolano but I thankfully, Mr. Jun posted a Tagalog version in his Facebook account! I rarely like poems but this one’s too witty and funny to pass!



Franzy and I met up around lunch. We left the workshop and headed straight to Embarcadero. It’s a mall beside the sea and seems appropriate also that boats dock in this area, hence the name of the mall. If I remember accurately, some time in December last year I found myself beside the sea also.

DSC_0733There’s a go kart arena but we were too lazy to try

DSC_0735Walked this road

DSC_0737And stopped by for a very vain photo haha



DSC_0745Was tired and hungry again, so we went to Bikol Blends to chill




DSC_0750The place has impeccable service, and the fastest wi-fi in Legazpi, maybe…





DSC_0756Tried out Sili Ice Cream! Contrary to popular belief, this one is not so spicy – it lingers on creamy side and releases the spicy sting on the throat, not on the tongue.

Was practically sleepless and tired so we opted not to go around that much. More of my Bicol trip in my next posts!!!
