Search Summit Day 2

After getting a restful sleep, we enjoyed the breakfast buffet at Hyatt. After breakfast, we went to a session with the GBG leads.

We had a lot of good afternoon activities as well. Learning about Google Ventures, HTML5, AdMob and AdSense, and Diversity. I would say that the sticker exchange that happened in the morning really did the trick that made the GDG leads talk with each other.

This is our almost ALL-girl group for the activity on diveristy

Later that evening was the cultural show and dinner in the beautiful garden of Hyatt. The GSAs presented their own country through different ways like dancing, singing, and poems. The kids (because they're the youngest group) really worked hard giving us an amazing presentation. To end the day, some of them even jumped into the pool! Everyone was party mode.

At around 11:00 pm, +Josan, +anne+Jomar, and I went for a swim. The river like swimming pool of Hyatt was cold and did not smell like chlorine. We came to a conclusion that it must be free flowing water from stream of some sort.

We were tired from a day of laughter and learning.

Perfect.

Word of the Day: "Kiss. Kiss."

Tomorrow is the last day of the SEARCH Summit 2013.

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Vacation: Fifth Day Back Home with Best Friend Forever

Ugh. It's my fifth day back home. My vacation is almost over. I can't believe it! For today, I scheduled to meet with my high school best friend, Deci.


Before meeting with her, Jomar and I had breakfast at Jollibee! Yes! Longganisa meal, corned beef meal, and 2-pc Chicken Joy just for the two of us.

That's a 900 calorie meal for breakfast. If that's not enough, on our way back to the condo we saw someone selling taho! Of course, I purchased some and we enjoyed it by the pool area.


After that, Jomar and I went up north of Metro Manila to Trinoma and SM North EDSA. I lived in Quezon City most of the 1st 25 years of my life.

Because of that, my optician is in SM North and I decided to get my eyes checked for free (sorry, Canada eye care is way way cheaper here). I decided to have my lenses changed to one that would turn into a darker shade when it's bright outside (instant sunglasses). It costs Php 2,500 (~$70 CAD) but I had to come back at around 7:00 PM since they s…
