My Calaguas Island Adventour..

Since summer time is almost here, my friends and I headed our way to one of the best summer destination at Daet, Camarines Norte, Calaguas Island!!

This is my college friend, Clarisse. This was our first pic at the bus on our way to our friends' house in Daet. Gee we were sooo excited!

It was 6am when we reached the port where we rode in the boat named after a whale- LUMBA LUMBA. All the other boat were named after huge sea creatures and it was too funny!

Here are some snapshots :)

On our way to the Island, we passes through several islets. The view was majestic and it made me even more excited to see all the other loong beaches!

looong beach!!!
When we passed through these islets, there was this deja vu feeling in me because these images were in my dreams and it's as if the place was home!! My excitement was extreme!

The boat ride took us for about 2 hours and tarannn!! we're here!!!

Aaahhh hello paradise!!
                          Just our first step and like wow!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ang ganda ganda ng sands!!!
The beach was beyond compare. The sands was white as heaven. The water was clean and warm.
And of course we did really really enjoy our summer fun! yeahhh :)
Chitchat and friendship!

One of the best shot I had was the sunset pics. Here's some...

Of course along with the celebration of the lenten season, I had several reflections during the trip. I was able to share the silence of a Good Friday while enjoying the amazing beach. The trip was fun and I really want to go back.. :)
Look at this morning moon at 5 am. God is Perfect.

The Selfie Love

Thanks to the compatability of genes and love of my parents. Haha. God just made a beautiful creation. Not just that, God is making a beautiful project out of it. 
When I was younger, as young as today, I have a very low self-esteem. I do not like dressing up, I hate partying and going out, and I was as timid as I was. Not until, life gave a challenge. 

In college, I had several encounters over finding that identity which a teenage girl searched. As I have become mature, I discovered the power of self-love. Yes, self love. 
It was then when I took efforts of making myself beautiful. Not just of collecting make up and dress and jumping over fashion hubs etc. It was more like celebrating and enjoying the odds and fun of a college life. I was in a relationship then, I think that also helps. *kilig
In my psychology and philosophy class, I learned the art of "true love"
when you assure yourself respect
when you have the support of your family
when despite difficulties, you are able to enjoy life
when you know that life is not easy but nothing is impossible with God.

It's giving back love to life because you love yourself. As a philosopher said, "you cannot give what you do not have."
There were several learnings and it continues up to now. When St. Ignatius called me to serve Ateneo, I know i am under God's will. And I trust the plan He has for me.

I am thankful that God created me as a person I wanted to be.
And I will continue to be beautiful because God loves me for who I am. Thank You my Lord, my Creator.
