Love Month 2018 Swap Received Cards

I really love postcards!  Mint ones and written and stamped ones.  After the Christmas 2017 swap, I then organized the Valentine’s 2018 Swap.

The group was not as big as the Christmas swap because I limit it to 15 participants para isang group lang.  So the following cards are the ones I received for the Love Season 2018.

— A nice card from Sir Wilz! —

I love this because YOU reminds me of many songs:

YOU are the one who makes me happy when everything else turns to gray…
YOU are the song playing so softly in my heart…
YOU are my sunshine…

–A valentine greetings from Sis Willa all the way from USA! —

–Sakura love from Japan! Reminds me of spring.  Thank you sis, Clang!

Trending News: Lee Min Ho & Suzy Bae’s Break-up

Warning: All thoughts written here are my personal opinion.


It seems I do not know what to do when I saw the breaking news on Youtube. As an avid Lee Min Ho fan since Boys Over Flowers, this news got me happy and excited.


If there is one thing that LMH did and made me mum of the issue — it is his real life girlfriend.  As a fan, and I know I am not alone in this, I just don’t think SB is the one for him.  If I base it on news, it was really LMH who fell hard on SB.  Maybe SB had that kind of charm that LMH didn’t find it any of his female friends or anyone in linked to him.  So now, I do not have to worry about this, because their relationship is over! lols!

Part of my crazy heart and mind reaction was my happiness. I was all smiles and blushing. At a moment I feel sorry for being so happy over a relationship that is over.  I wanted to scream and do the giggling happiness dance.  I wish my friend Genevieve, a fan who is also crazy over LMH was in the office at that moment I read the news.  I could just imagine our screams.  Lols!

The Minshin fans clubs are now having a party for sure.  Really, I was so excited that I immediately status what I felt tagging someone who also will go gaga over the news. lols!

I clicked on the news on ABS-CBN I was amazed to see that 99% of the comment were relieved of the news. Kind of sad for their fans because their relationship lasted for 2 years. But me, i’ve been praying that LMH can realize that SB is not really for him.  I know he loves her dearly as he lavishly do things for her.  But one of life’s reality is some good things don’t last long if not forever.

You may be wondering why I became gaga with the news.  You might think it’s me head over head in love with LMH. No!  I am his fan and I love him as an actor and I am happy for all his achievements in his career and life.  I do not have an inclination to wish that I will be in a relationship (for real) with him. lols!  But if we are of the same age, then maybe I would fall in love with him in a romantic way. ha ha ha

Now the reason why I am happy with his breakup with Suzy, it is because I ship Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hae, his co-star in the drama The Heirs.


They were still so young in that drama but they have a great friendship that they had fun doing the shoot.  It was their first work together and they both had great memories.  Fans commented that they have candid sweet moments together even though PSH always make fun of LMH.  Their tandem in The Heirs had more fans compared to LMH’ & SB as couple. lols!

Here’s a png file of one of the scenes in The Heirs. This was shoot in LA, USA.  (I <3 California shit!)   The drama was aired some years ago but if I’ll go back to LA i’ll surely buy that same kind & print of shirt. lols!



As a happy fan, let me share some more lovely pics of this two together. They may be ad pictorials and maybe some are photoshopped, but for fandom, these are priceless images to inspire them to continually support the minshin couple and of course LMH!

Adventure Park @ Alindahaw Lakeview Resort

If you love taking pictures and you are checked in at Alindahaw Lakeview Resort, then you cannot stop clicking.  Our small group team went on  an overnight accommodation at the resort.  Many thought that it was not an ideal destination, thus, only few went with the group.

After traveling almost 5 hours in two types of weather – sunny and rainy, we reached the resort tired but excited.  The view and the surroundings were indeed a therapy.  It was what we needed for a weekend get-away destination.

After settling in for an hour, I decided to go down and walk around with my camera.   While others enjoyed the water swimming & kayaking, I spent time taking photos and relaxing in bed.  I have lots of photos taken but I wanna share some for you to enjoy. Somehow you will feel that you were with me there enjoying the view.


We were accommodated at the dormitory. A cozy building built at their Adventure Park area.  They have many amenities for an adventure activity, but sad to note that they are not functioning as of now as they need still need a preventive job to ensure that they are safe to be used by their customers.  So for now, for your eyes only pa ang dating.




I think the area is also ideal for an I-SHINE Bootcamp training site.


If you go down on the zip line, you’ll end up at this area.






The monkey stairs





All these monkeys are showing off. ha ha ha

That Autumn Feel


I saw several of these plants and their colors reminded me of a maple tree. Maple trees gave me Autumn feel. Si Gong Yoo dayon ang naa sa akong huna huna. lols


This is not a maple leaf but the mix of colors reminded me of what Eun Tak said:

“If you catch a falling maple leaf, you’ll fell in love
with the person you are walking with.”


This is not a maple leaf.
And I was not walking with someone
So, there no such thing as I will fell in love
during that moment.



#EatIligan 2.0 | Pop Snack

I am an Iliganon yet, I’ve never been to most food joints in my own city.  Thanks to Iligan Bloggers Society for showcasing different good food outlets around Iligan. It gave me an opportunity what places to recommend to friends and visitors.


Pop Snack Iligan is my second stop for this week-end appointment.  The summer color splash coolers were the ones that caught my fancy.  I can could click my camera a thousand times to take this beauty.  Thanks to these coolers, it quenched my thirst.  So perfect for an early afternoon drink.



Buffalo wings! I do not know when what the last time I have eaten buffalo wings, so this is also a welcome sight. ha ha ha. I heart chicken eh! But it’s spicyness was too much for me.  A little bite was enough.  For those who are more adventurous into the fiery-taste foodies, buffalo wings from Pop Snack is for you.


I love bread so I definitely love their footlongs and the pizza bread.  They offered us to taste the Hawaiian flavor and the jalapeno flavor.  Keri ra ang ka spicy sa jalapeno. It’s way milder for me compared to the buffalo wings.



Fries fries fries.  This is yummy when it just got out of the oven. Don’t let it out on the table for long so that it won’t turn soggy.  For fries lovers visiting Pop Snack, this will do na.  They have several topping flavors to chose from like: pizza, spicy jalapeno, chili con, beefy gravy, salty chocolate, and ham and cheese!  Each flavor come with different prices.


Pop Snack is another good place to crowd during peak meal and snack times.  It is another place hang out with friends and enjoy their very affordable offers like budget meals with drinks, rice bowls with drinks, special desserts – special mention for chocolate pop smores and brownie smores!  Have them when you can. But for those with blood sugar problems, one bite will do! ha ha ha

Aside from their footlongs and burgers, they are also serving pancakes with flavors and you can have an option to add a scope of ice cream.


Some members of the #EatIligan gang enjoying the jar of coolers.  The size is definitely pang barkada!


Pop Snack is located at the back of St. Michael’s Cathedral.


Pop Snack served us several of their bests but unfortunately my takes were not that nice, so I didn’t include them na in this post.

Our beloved president’s visit @ AMCI

A “very” long post was gone in a wink of an eye because Mozilla crashed. Stupid of me to write it at the FB status section. lols but grrrrr

I started writing it here with the hope that I will transfer it to my blog once a new page for a new post can be accessed (connection is slow so it’s I cannot get a blank page for a new post.)

Oh well, what i was writing about was the waiting and the arrival of the President of the Philippines in our hospital. The few seconds of waving at him and his team from the 2nd floor annex side door was really a high moment. ha ha ha It made me relate to the screaming people at the street when his vehicle arrived. They screamed more when the President waved back at them. Hearing that kind of scream (i was at the ramps and people were lining at 18th Avenue and the Macky’s area made me ran to the Annex. lols!

I then waved hard from the 2nd floor, when he become visible to were we were standing.  We were kind of happy and giggling but yet I can hear the young police man saying, “ayaw diha mam. diri ra ka taman mam” lols! We were not allowed to go near the railings eh. It’s not me who was waiving. All of us at that area and below us were chanting his name.

After sometime, people were going back to their rooms and the place is somewhat clearing, I told Ate Lucy that we go to the loan at the back of the President’s office so we can have a glimpse of the President at a very near distance. 😀 Result of the move: I was able to wave at him and wished him well and I was able to shook the hands of General Dela Rosa. 😀

Thank you Mr. President for visiting our wounded heroes and awarding them medal of valor to commemorate their braveness and commitment to their duty to protect the people of the Philippines even in perilous situation.

Your visit to AMCI will never be forgotten.

Pink Fridays: 4/216 : Pink Flowers

 photo pinkfridays_zpsjstvtsp8.jpgI missed to make an entry last week because I worked out of the campus. We arrived back in Iligan Friday but past 10 in the evening already. It was then only on Monday that I came back to the office. But then, I clicked some photos of pink flowers last Friday. I will share it in the future.

For now, I am sharing a bunch of pink flowers I saw in a beautified sidewalk in Seoul. They are so cute, right?!

Happy Friday everyone!

Pink Fridays 3/214

 photo pinkfridays_zpsjstvtsp8.jpg

I was at the mall early this afternoon when I was tagged by the host of Pink Fridays. I was surprised how come it’s Friday once again. I guess my days were just too full of activities that I lost track of the exact day.

In order to save me from time going through my photo archives, I decided to look for pink stuff in any of the shops. I was at a Penshoppe store, and the girl shops got lovely pinks. But I was discreet in taking pictures afraid that I will be reprimanded and be asked to delete the photos. So instead of taking pink shirts or dresses, I opt for the following:

Love Perfume! (the fragrance is mild)
