Happy 5th Anniversary Jomar!

To my dearest Jomar,

Announcing to the world and sharing to social media about us isn't our thing. We kept our love privately just between us but since this is our 5th year together as a couple, it deserves a little attention and celebration (and a blog post).

From one of our first #selfie together during a time when it's not even called selfie yet, to our first airplane ride together (GenSan) and to our first trip out of the Philippines together, we've come a looong way. We got older, matured a little bit, and grew up (and looking at the pictures, we did celebrate over food a lot in the last five years!).

First plane ride!

Who knew that five years later, we would still be together and we even survived our first six months in long distance relationship! High-five! Thank you for being patient with me and never failing to send Hangout messages every so often. As I said before, when we survive this LDR phase, I will write a post on "How to survive LDR?".

One of our many Hangouts!

Our last picture together before you have to leave Canada November of last year!

From the LDR roses (which is unexpected) and the LBC-delivered Valentine's Card last February to the 5th year anniversary card, even if we're miles apart, you never failed to make me feel like I am the most special girl in the world.

Though, I am not the sweetest girlfriend and I sometimes have trouble expressing how I feel, you know that I love you. I can't wait to have you back here in Canada (hopefully, permanently) and you know that you just have to say the word and I would be back there if it's what you want, right?

Happy 5th Anniversary JT! More memories, more moments, more restaurants to try, and definitely more travel together. I love you and be with you soon!


p.s Here's one of my fave pics of us together! It's bookmarked for moments when I miss you.

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.

Let's help build a home for my birthday

My birthday is coming up (it's on November 8) and instead of gifts, I am hoping you could donate to, specifically in helping Kenyan families rebuild their lives by providing stable homes. With Safe Housing, we can all make a difference in providing stable homes to 149 families in 11 centers across Kenya.

We all dream of having our own house. I know I do. But when we think about having our own home, we think about how many bedroom and bathrooms we want, what color scheme we will use on the wall, the style of our kitchen. Meanwhile, these families just want shelter from strong winds and torrential rain and I hope that we can make a difference.

For a minimum of $10 CAD, you will give me a birthday gift and we will help provide a home to this families.

Give a Gift

My fundraiser code is 8-10011711 so Compassion can keep track of this little campaign. Please feel free to share this short post to your friends and help me celebrate my birthday this year!
