Anniversary Celebration in Baguio

+Jomar Tigcal and I celebrated our second anniversary last August 4, 2013 in Baguio City with our dearest friends from both +GBG Philippines and +GDG Philippines.

The morning started with another round of delicious breakfast from +Azalea Baguio. Since we already checked out our room, we decided to stay in the common area of the three-bedroom suite of Mama +Chelle Gray and Ms. +Aileen Apolo.

At around 10 AM, we went straight to Good Shepherd. Purchased ube and peanut brittle. I always say that the best Ube are from Good Shepherd! After this, we went inside Camp John Hay and it was my first time to visit the places below:

Cemetery of Negativism

It's not a real cemetery. It's a hill with tombs in it. In the tombs, negative thoughts were written.


Bell Amphitheater

So pretty! Here's a panorama shot:

Ketchup Community: Canto

For lunch, we eat at Canto inside the Ketchup Community. Jomar had the Lomo Ribs which were huge while I had the Chili Burger (which wasn't chili, LOL I love spicy food and I thought it was a spicy burger my bad for assuming). We also had Taco salad which was lovely.



After lunch, we had to go back to Manila and I arrived home 7:00 PM. It was surprisingly earlier than I thought. Six hour drive and without traffic.

For the sake of it, here's our photo booth picture during the Women 3.0 event in Baguio. Happy Anniversary dearest +Jomar Tigcal!

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

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.
