Jobs to Do

My major task is still going on and hopefully tomorrow evening it will be done.  Then only a few more things on my list to be done.  My EDAD homework was put on hold but at least i have done already half of it.  Good thing i endorsed the motorhome repairs to my cousin to be checked. She said they just had their internet connection installed so by now she can help me on some tasks to be checked.

At least my to do list will become shorter now.

FIRST TIME IN DIPOLOG/DAPITAN (Part I)

Photobucket

I was one of the faculty/staff chaperons of an Educational Tour

~~Almost to reach our destination

Photobucket

~~ That’s our first stop. For lunch. The place feels like attending a debu or a formal party. hehehe

Photobucket

~~ After lunch, this was the next destination. A student activity that was suppose to be done in an hour but we stayed there for more than 2 hrs because many students wanted to reach the top.

Do you wanna know how many steps i made? Oh well, only 3 of that 3003. lol!

Photobucket

~~Here’s me after making that 3 steps. lol!

It was during this trip that i met up close and personal the Miss Earth 2008 winner Karla Paula
and the ladies that won Miss Air and Miss Water.
I think Miss Karla is very beautiful.

Next to that peak, we proceeded to Rizal Shrine in Dapitan.

A sunset view i took from the top of the Lovers’ Rock inside the shrine. I can imagine Jose Rizal and Josephine Bracken enjoy the sunset from that spot.

There’s much more photos to share about this trip so maybe i can post them next time as Part II.

I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as i enjoy recalling those moments.

This is one of the memories that brings a smile to my face at the same time sad because this guy here —

left this world unexpectedly (through a vehicular accident. he was hit by a speeding car heeding to the airport catching a flight) 3 months later.   He was one of the persons that made this trip more lively and unforgetable for the students especially.

8 + 1 Postcards Yesterday

8 postcard exchange plus 1 direct swap postcards i picked from the post office yesterday noontime.  I forgot when was the last time i went there to pick my cards.  But obviously couple of the 9 have stayed in the postoffice for several weeks already because one card has reached me after 150 days and that is from Russia.

The 8 cards were from the following countries:

Netherlands – 13 days

Russia – 150 days

Finland – 25 days

Germany – 18 days

USA – 34 days

China – 32 days

Ukraine – 73 days

Belarus – 34 days

The counting of travel days begin from the day you requested for an address at postcrossing website until the day the receiver will register the card received.   Usually it only takes a maximum of 2 to 3 weeks if from long distance countries but due to traffic then that would caused the card to reach the destination much longer.

It’s my first time to get a card from Belarus and also from Russia.  And my third from China.

Overnight at a Log Cabin

One of my wishes for an outdoor activity is to spend a weekend at a log cabin in a far away resort.  I wanna see different kinds of log furniture . Someone told me that there is a retreat house up in the Bukidnon area but i haven’t tried making a plan with my friends. The nice thing about Bukidnon area is the spring weather so am sure there are just many log cabins up there.

It’s nice going on a retreat out there with friends at work or with a special friend. 😉 And enjoy the warmth of the fireplace sitting in this wonderful upholstered wooden loveseat —
