Java Projects Outing in Panglao, Bohol
I was supposed to publish this post a few days after the outing but when the 7.2-magnitude earthquake rocked Bohol and Cebu, I didn’t think it was the right time to do so. Now that almost 2 weeks have passed, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to post this now. :)
We made our way to Bohol in the morning of October 12 (Saturday), and who would’ve thought it would be that windy? We were swaying with the waves during the whole trip in the fast craft, and I was actually scared at first but got confident later on that I slept through it. :P
We arrived at Bagobo Beach Resort in Panglao, Bohol after 2 hours of travel. I was really hungry since I didn’t have breakfast. Luckily, the lechon baboy that we ordered was delivered early, so we ate it for brunch! We actually didn’t have activities planned out since we were there to chill and have fun, so chill and have fun we did!
An Enchanted Weekend
Last Friday night, I flew back to Manila together with my GK friends for Gawad Kalinga's 10th anniversary celebration the following day. We were out very early on Saturday morning to go to GK Enchanted Farm in Bulacan!
It’s my second time there (my first was last year, also during the GK Expo), and I can say the place has improved! There were a lot of people who came to celebrate with GK, and because of the crowd, we just decided to roam around and take pictures.

2013’s Last Quarter
After reading Arriane’s Reconquer October and Anne’s Uh-ctober to Change, I suddenly felt like making my own post about my plans, but for the last quarter of this year.
Disclaimer: This post is not geared towards productivity like Arriane’s or health like Anne’s. It’s more about ‘personal gain’ and getting ready for next year (and the coming years, maybe). :P
1 // October - pay off debts
I was actually already debt-free last month until Cebu Pacific’s Piso Fare happened. My workmates and I have been planning to go to South Korea next year, and the affordable opportunity showed itself! Also, my college barkada had a deal to go to Palawan next year. So I had a pretty good time booking for everyone using a friend’s credit card (I don’t like having one, so yeah). And now, we’d all have to pay it off by the end of the month. :))
2 // November - buy a new camera
I already sold my DSLR to our small business and my waterproof camera to my friend ‘coz I’m planning to buy a mirrorless camera soon. I’ve always loved photography but I find it tiring to lug around a big camera, so I end up bringing my point-&-shoot (waterproof) camera instead, which is not that amazing when it comes to quality. So, at least with a mirrorless camera, I can take better photos with smaller size and lesser weight. ;)
3 // December - buy a new smartphone
I’ve always been sort of a gadget hoarder (thus, the debts) and never seemed to become satisfied. Currently, when it comes to portability, I only have my Samsung tablet and my BlackBerry phone (both low-end), and I still don’t think they satisfy my
needswants. So I’m planning to get a high-end smartphone on a postpaid plan and swear not to replace it until the contract expires (a new phone will come by then). Ahaha! :))
I warned you, didn’t I? I’m doing all these because by next year, I’d like to spend more on travels and experiences rather than material things. At least those stuff I’m planning to acquire this year will be used to make my experiences more worthwhile. Lusot! :D
From Cute to Wild: D’ Hacienderas at Cafe Caw and Music One
I’ve been wanting to see my college barkada for months now, and we finally did last Saturday! It was a celebration of some sort for an achievement. :)
We originally planned to go to Cafe Noriter ‘coz I was thinking it was a perfect place to chill and catch up. But when we got there, it was full (considering it was a weekend), so we just took some pictures.
