I've been to South Korea last October 2011. It was my first travel out of the country with friends. It was great! This year (2014), Jomar and I with our GDG friends (Mitch, Wayne, and Mama Chelle) are planning to go to South Korea for vacation.
Process of Submission
Jomar and I submitted the VISA application requirements last January 29, 2014: Application FormOne piece of Passport size coloured picture (we went to Picture City and asked for Korean VISA size photo) - this should be attached to your application formOriginal Passport (should be valid for more than six months)Photocopy of Passport Bio-page (page 2)Original and photocopy of valid visa/s and arrival stamps to OECD member countries for the past five years (if applicable, and Korean Visas is not counted)Original Certificate of Employment (with contact number/s & address…
After 9 months of planning and preparation, this is it! It is our wedding in the Philippines in front of family and friends.
I want to tell you that it was magical and amazing, but much of it was a blur, but I'll do my best to describe how I felt.
It was my turn to walk down the aisle - everybody (from the Manila Cathedral guide to the videographer at the back) is telling me to slow down. I didn't even know that I'm walking fast! I want to tell you that I was nervous or scared, but at that moment, I felt calm and genuinely joyful.

Family and Friends
As I walk, I keep looking left and right, waving and smiling at family and friends that I see. It felt amazing to be…

Hair & Make-up
Our wedding is at 10:00 AM, and we got Julius Marquez and his team to do hair and make-up for 10 people.
They were at the location at around 1:45 AM to start doing our hair and make-up by 2:00 AM. Below is the schedule:
2:00 AM (4 heads): Celine (bride), Mitch (maid of honour), Deci (secondary sponsor), and Shelly (secondary sponsor)
4:00 AM (4 heads): Mother, Mother-in-law, Therese (secondary sponsor), and Alyanna (bridesmaid)
6:00 AM (2 heads): Keith (flower girl) and Carli (flower girl) but since Carli wakes up late Mama Chelle (godmother) used the slot
Whew! Yes, I'm awake 10 hours before my wedding. Don't do a morning wedding if you don't want this torture (I'm kidding!). Thanks to all these wonderful ladies who woke up early for our special day.
A warm hug and gratitude to Julius and his team for the excellent work and waking up earlier than …
