What I did in Cebu: Let me show you a bit of my trip to Cebu!

During our quick stay, we had a wonderful day with the lovely marine and tropical animals at Cebu Ocean Park! This day-tour was enough to feed our hungry selves with such awesomeness all over the place.

What to expect in Cebu Ocean Park? 
This tourist spot in Cebu recently open this September 2019, and is still on soft opening. (Check put their website for their grand opening.) The facilities were almost complete, and according to their staffs, there are already many tourists coming in and out everyday. 
The whole facility is clustered into parts: a jungle trek where you will be able to see beautiful birds flying around and some tropical marine animals inside huge aquariums; jaw-dropping exhibits of most rare species of animals such as amphibians, reptiles, arachnids, etc.; different aquariums sizes filed with beautiful small to medium-sized marine creatures; a tunnel where you can see small to medium-sized sharks, sting rays and a lot more (which mostly I can no longer identify).

Everything Makes Me Cry These Days

As I watch the Barbie Kids adorably show cuteness and simply havingfun on stage, I honestly can’t stop my tears from falling. I know I’m distressed (everyone goes thru this) and everything these days makes me emotional. Watching everyone, makes me remember my self when I was little when I had no responsibilities, no expectations to achieve, no people to please, no heartaches, no troubles. A time where “I can simply do anything and just be anything!”

When I was little, I used to have Barbie Dolls with me whom I can always talk to. Who else haven’t played a Barbie Doll during childhood, right? Even daddies do! Amidst of my unfavorable and unstable emotional self, joy, confidence and cuteness spiced up the season. But it made me cry more! I miss the simplicity of life and the support and comforting hugs of my mom. The kids are totally making me cry (I don’t know why). I have recapped many things I still want to do in life, all my petty aspirations to keep pushing. I have been wanting so…

SMC to use biodegradable plastics packaging | Press Release

SMC to use biodegradable plastics packaging
San Miguel Corporation (SMC) is set to become the first Filipino company to utilize fully-certified biodegradable plastic packaging.

The company said it is tapping a local firm that has been developing and testing the technology for the last five years, which SMC is initially set to use for food and non-food products, such as cement and feed sacks, grocery bags and food and other single-use plastic packaging.

The move will be the newest addition to San Miguel’s sustainable business models, which include the zero-waste returnable glass bottle system, and manufacturing processes following circular economy principles--where by-products are re-used to create other products.

SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang said that it is partnering with Philippine Bioresins Corporation, a small but innovative company, that has successfully developed and tested biodegradable plastics.

Conglomerate San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has taken another major step in the area of sustainability, by laying the first recycled plastics road in the Philippines.

Travel: Lovely Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort, San Joaquin Iloilo

What can we make if we talk to God in a peaceful place? 
A millenial like me would always want something fun and nice after many days of hectic schedule. I could just frown if I am rushed and pressured by others; to live life fast is something I persoanlly don't like. I don't want to compete with time. I believe that life must be enjoyed slowly.
Traveling is my medicine. It is my way to improve my self. It is one best way to I reflect and thank God, how He made my life so beautiful and perfect. Oh, how I love His gift these days and forever; the "luxury of time". Now, I can definitely say yes to most opportunities coming my way. I have been traveling for free, and more free trips coming my way.

I still can't forget my trip with my friends at Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort in San Joaquin. God really knows when to give a day for rest and fun. It was a quick getaway, but that day was filled with so much fun and so many good memories to keep. In addition, Rosma Pebbled Co…
