Life Changes in October and November 2017

First, thank you so much to all those who supported my birthday fundraising. I am not sure how much I was able to raise but I am sure that my mom gave $20 as a birthday gift so yay for mom.

Second, Jomar arrived in Canada last October 21 and was planning to stay here until November 22 but we've been in a long distance relationship for 2 years now and we've been discussing getting married even before I left for Canada (plus, we got engaged last 16.06.16 (June 16, 2016)) so we decided to elope.

October

Last October 26, 2017, in front of my family and with the blessing of both our parents, we got married at the beautiful King George Park in Richmond, BC. I got my "garden" wedding and it happened in the most beautiful season of all, Fall. One of the reasons why I decided to stay in Canada is because of how amazing and beautiful Fall is. It's just amazing.


We had a simple dinner at Kisha Poppo and eat all you can Japanese restaurant. My mom enjoyed her unlimited tempura while I am ecstatic to be married and drown with all the salmon sashimi I could devour.


November

In between coordinating our wedding, we were also busy apartment hunting in this Vancouver expensive housing market. We considered two things when apartment hunting:
  1. It should be under our budget, obviously.
  2. It should be within a kilometer (walking distance) of my work.
We did find an apartment last October and moved in mid-November. Packing, finding movers (thanks Yelp), and buying things we need - it was a busy month.


So now, I am married and have moved out from my parents.

Talk about life changes!

Work

There will also be changes at work this coming 2018 and I am scared but as Ms. Myna said, "You can do it scared."

If you've read this far, thank you. :)


Wedding suppliers:
We would like to thank, Young Hip and Married for helping us find Marilyn (our officiant) and Emily Nicole (our photographer). My hair and make-up is by Vimo Beauty (thanks Fiona!). Jomar's polo is from Zara, coat and pants are from Top Man. His shoes is from a closing store in Richmond Center. My dress is from Laura and my shoes is from Payless.

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.

My Ozamiz City Adventure

New city. New people. More universities going Google!


Day 1: LSU Gone Google Last May 24, 2013 (Friday), Jomar and I took the only flight going to Ozamiz City (from Manila) for the La Salle University (LSU) Google Apps for Education Training. After the initial surprise of the checked-in luggage just being handed out by airport employees, we went out and looked for Ms. Leslyn of LSU. We saw her with the other professors and we headed straight to the university. Being an alumna of De La Salle University in Taft Avenue, Manila, I am very happy to be sharing to the faculty of LSU what I know about Google Apps. We started the training a little after 9:00 AM and the teaching staff representatives from each colleges and department was very eager to learn. They asked questions and were really looking forward to maximizing Google Apps for the coming school year.
