10th Gawad Kalinga Builders Camp
Being part of the event organizers isn’t that easy, especially when you still have to scout for participants for the event. And it gets frustrating when you find out that some are backing out on the last minute. But despite that, we still pushed through with the 10th Gawad Kalinga Builders Camp at San Miguel GK Village in Maguikay last March 1 to 3 (Friday night to Sunday morning).
On the first night, I met up with our few participants at the mall before going to the GK site. When we got there, I was glad that there were a few other organizers present to help us with the activities. We had some self introductions, then we created groups for the flag making and The Tallest Tower team building activity. The three groups formed were Bonakids, Team Kyu, and Teaman-e — 1 participant team and 2 service teams.
Secret of Happiness
I recently downloaded the Android apps Secret of Happiness and 101 How-to-be-Happy Tips because I was kind of bored yesterday and yes, I wanna be happier. Who doesn’t, anyway? :P
The Secret of Happiness app is a 30-day challenge wherein it reminds you every morning to list 3 things you’re thankful for and 1 thing you would want to accomplish for the day. And at night, it reminds you to write 1 thing that made you happy.
101 How-to-be-Happy Tips, on the other hand, is just a list of little things that could, well, make you happy (duh).
I’m the kind of person who stresses out on things at a slightly more exaggerated level than other people (I might as well throw some LSP alumina ceramic), so I need something to get me out of that pit. So for the next days, I’m gonna be taking on the happiness challenge and I’m hoping that it will become a habit, and of course, make me happier. :)

Cebu Bloggers Society, Inc. Appreciation Night
Watching the video above made me miss my early years with CBSi — 2009 and 2010 specifically. I attended a lot of events during that time and of course, all the experiences I had were totally worthwhile. I actually wish I could bring back those moments with my friends but since that’s quite impossible (for now?), moving forward, I’m just hoping I could do more fun stuff with them and the new ones (since my time). :)
Bayani Challenge & GKabarkada
I first joined the Bayani Challenge last 2011 in Bantayan Island (shortly after my graduation). I didn’t have a close friend in my team back then. I just got acquainted with almost all of them during our meetings and on the event itself. But I didn’t hesitate in joining the team from my university. In fact, I was so excited to make new friends! And the Bayani Challenge served as the water to our friendship plant ‘coz after a week of heroism and casual bonding, the GKabarkada was born. :)
