Most often I encountered so many questions, from the early start of my work here in the PNP.  Part of the questions that was asked by a psychologist during my neuro oral interview was “Why are you still single?” “Are you a lesbian? I could not help but burst into laughter at that moment, I even thought I would loss my appointment.

Another man asked me why I am not yet married? Or am I already attached and have a common relationship with a guy here in Manila? and still many questions that I often encountered almost every day in the office, instead of giving them a hard look, I just simply shrugged my shoulders.  My age and my marital status are often brought up during small talks, and that is inevitable specially that I am surrounded with men-in-uniform.

Upon learning that I am already 33 years old and still single, they usually say maybe I am too picky with my choices of a guy, with the tone of their remarks, they seem so sorry for me.

People think, at my age and as a woman, I am too picky.  I find no reason why they usually make such assumption, and it seemed that they would like to imply that I am not anymore in the position to be overly picky because of my age.  But there are also some cool people, specially my real friends who would always tell me to take my time and enjoy life.  I understand that getting married and having kids ranked No.1 priority of each one’s life, and that marriage happens before 30 years old when our child-bearing abilities are at their prime. Honestly, I really never thought about it even before until recently, because, accordingly, it is the normal thing.  But who can define “normal” for anyone?

Just yesterday, my boss called me to his office, I thought there was a big issue concerning the office, much of my dismay he just asked about my love life.  Recently, I started praying again for the man of my life.  Now, at 33, and at the peak of the glaring issues of marriage, I realized that God often does not give what we want but what we need instead.  I am not trying to defend myself from the inevitable issue of being “single”, but, if I am meant to be married now, there should have series of prearranged events that would lead me to that. Maybe, I am just to be careful of the choices I am trying to make, after all, I really want to have it as a lifetime commitment, I really, really like the idea of being married but definitely I could not imagine myself settling for less.  There are lots of marriages that never ended up in a “happily ever after”.  Some people are miserably married, some are luckily married, while some are truly happily married.  And as of my age, and as of my personal view, I want to be married out of pure love and commitment.  I personally value commitment, love, respect and responsibility more than anything else than signing a piece of paper.  I want to go with the process of getting into love and commitment, because at the end is that what makes it beautiful and magical.  I simply want to do things for the right reason not because of the peer pressure.  After all, it’s not the people surrounding me who will suffer if my marriage failed, but it will always be “me”.  I just want to feel it right.  And what is right for me at this point, is to wait for the right moment when it will bound to happen, because if I am meant to be married, for sure, I would be.  And I personally believe in it.

October 15, Holiday.

I was so excited talking to my family because i sent money to take our kids to Jollibee.  After i ended the call, another text message i received telling me the worst news, my hometown, Bohol and the rest of the Central Visayas region was hit by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.

I turned the television.  There was no  news at that moment.  I was shaking, I thought of my family and friends. It was a horrible moment to me until i decided to turn my attention to the computer asking the Lord to tell me that all i have heard few minutes ago was all lie.

All the pains of the Boholanos, the traumas may not be healed easily, but I do believe, the dust will eventually settle and we will live the way we used to be.

I always pray that we will be able to stand, STRONGER AND BRAVER. BELIEVING THAT GOD WILL GUIDE AND BLESS US AS WE STRUGGLE TOWARDS THE HEALING!

The pictures below were taken by the Boholanos:

THIS IS MY BELOVED DAUIS CHURCH, otherwise known as the “VIRGEN DE LA ASSUMPTION CHURCH” in Dauis, Bohol

DAUIS CHURCH, DAUIS, BOHOL

I grow up in this church, this is where i spend my Christmas…Our church make us of who we are now.  I remember every time i visit the place, i always dream to walk down the aisle of this church.  But time came, when the beloved church rubble into pieces and the facade turned into powder.  I could not help but cry.  I thought of making a blog, a  week ago, but it’s only up to now i was able to gather my strength to start my writing and dedicate a portion of my blog to my beloved province who suffered from too much devastation after a big earthquake that almost lost our hope.  But now, I believe we are going to stand again.  Our churches may have broken, but not our faith.

Accordingly, the Dauis church’s style was influenced by both Byzantine and Romanesque architecture. On its ceiling were frescoes painted by church artist Ray Francia in 1916.

Our province of Bohol is blest with centuries-old churches that we are proud of.  Through many stages of our lives, churches are always part of our lives.  Through the struggles we have, churches are our last refuge.  But our faith in God does not end upon the destruction of our churches.  Miracles happen every second, and we believe on it.

(I will give credit to my uncle Ralph Castillo for this beautiful picture of Baclayon Church).  I know the  churches we have in Bohol cannot be restored the way we want it to be.  I owe to the next generations to have a glimpse of what we have before we loss the churches.

Among the best place to visit in Bohol is the Pamilacan Island.  It is a way to explore the natural beauty and marine world and an island escapades for relaxation away from the fast life back in the city.  Other than Tarsiers and Chocolate Hills, Bohol has much to offer to the world, the beauty continues to the underwater bloom  and pristine marine life, white sand beaches and the simplicity that has not yet commercialized. Let’s go and explore Pamilacan Island at it’s best.

OFF TO PAMILACAN ISLAND
The Island hopping should start at 5:30 am to be able to get a glimpse of dolphins

We started our island hopping at around 5:30 am to be able to get a glimpse of dolphins but unfortunately we were not able to watch dolphins during the trip since there are big waves.  According to our guides, dolphin are more visible when the sea is calm.

It took us almost 45 minutes to be able to reach the island. Since during the trip there was a southwest monsoon (habagat).

The weather was very sunny (we were lucky because in Manila and Luzon there were heavy rains due to habagat and “Bagyong Maring” (Storm Maring in particular), and most part of Northern Luzon including Metro Manila was flooded.

PAMILACAN ISLAND ON A CLEAR DAY!!

PAMILACAN ISLAND ON A CLEAR DAY!!

Pamilacan is just a very small island, it is one of the barangays of Baclayon, Bohol. It is less frequented by tourist. It has a rustic and tropical like paradise that you cannot simply afford to ignore. The place is very, very simple with open cottages, carefree living of the folks and i beautiful and wide stretch of shoreline.

ST. ISIDRO DE LABARADOR CHAPEL in Pamilacan Island

I’ve been in Pamilacan twice.  I never failed to visit their small chapel to thank God for a safe trip coming to the island and prayed for another safe trip back to the mainland.

TRIANGULAR SPANISH WATCH TOWER

TRIANGULAR SPANISH WATCH TOWER

I haven’t experience the snorkeling here, quite not ready to do it for now.  My father, Papa Cinto told me there is fast current of water.  For me to be able to explore the water without a fear of of losing my balance, i guess i should be ready to do that. Promise the next time I will be in Pamilacan Island, i would not missed the opportunity to dive and explore the wonders of the underwater.

What is amazing about the people in Pamilacan Island is after few decades of capturing some species including those endangered marine species, the fishermen who destroyed and hunted marine resources are now the ambassadors of protecting their precious gems.

Accordingly, “Sighting of whale sharks, the largest of the extant fish species, are also common around the island, especially around full moon when plankton is most plentiful. Subsequently, the community has organized whale shark interaction tours which supports the island’s fishermen community, using their paddle boats as the only form of transportation allowed near the whale sharks for the safety of the amazing giant creatures. Consequently, Pamilacan Island has been the recipient of numerous awards from tourism councils and environmental organization in recognition of their remarkable makeover” (Sources)

My Footprints in the Sand

My Footprints in the Sand

Valuing the memories of every step i take in my life, every journey towards my dreams.  My past will always be a part of who and what I am today.  Be with me always as i TRAVEL , DREAM AND BUILD MY MEMORIES.

The title seemed quite unusual. Well, this was what my heart dictated as i tapped the keys of the laptop.

This place was  very special for me then.  I got the opportunity to  face with my fears, and i am so happy that i was able to make it.

Number of pictures posted, a remembrance of what i called a “brave move to healing”.  There are always meanings in every word, but the pictures are the best to define what i am feeling right now.

at Ewon, Sevilla, Bohol

The Sevilla Hanging Bridge crossing the Sipatan River in Sevilla, Bohol is a fun tourist attraction that should be included in the lists for a day tour.

starting the journey towards the end of the bridge..

starting the journey towards the end of the bridge..

Originally constructed using just bamboo and rope, today the rope has made way to steel cables, giving added safety and stability.The deck of the bridge is formed out of woven bamboo slats. In places some of these appear broken but its still sturdy enough to take the weight of tourists, locals and even small motorcycles.

The HANGING BRIDGE laid to over 20 to 30 meters high above and spans 40 meters long  woven bamboo slats with steel cable wires as hand rails. There are already two bridges to prevent the foot traffic.  I was truly amazed with the tranquility and emerald Sipatan River. I am so proud to be here and enjoy the thrill of going and facing my fears.

Don’t be surprise, upon crossing the bridge, and as a tourist, one should pay at least P20.00 for the entrance fee, the proceeds will be used for the development and maintenance of the bridge, enough to enjoy its thrill yet some way or another, we are able to help the locals to have a means of getting into the another village just right across. It was a refreshing experience for me.

Crossing the bridge, is a great challenge because it makes you feel nauseous and dizzy because of its right to left swaying and also up and down movement.

Visiting the place is actually not a waste of time. Pour your heart into it and start loving your fears.

I am a native in Bohol, a small island in the Philippines. Today, i want to give a snapshost of what i am proud of. I invited some of my colleagues to have a tour with me. Month of August is always one of the best months for me.

I am writing this blog hoping that i could give insights to the people who plan to visit the province.  This might be an unusual blog, but somehow i hope it will be useful, and I am so proud to be able to have this opportunity to share what everyone should experience.

BLOOD COMPACT SHRINE

I always find the place to be really captivating, in my heart, the place will always have the special space  for an unknown reason and i will continue visiting  even a hundred times.

BLOOD COMPACT The Sandugo or Blood Compact Shrine monument found in Bo-ol district of Tagbilaran City is a landmark at the site of the first international treaty of friendship between Spaniards and Filipinos. Behind the monument is a magnificent view of Bohol Sea. The Sandugo was a blood compact, performed in Bohol between the Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna, the chieftain of Bohol, on March 16, 1565, to seal their friendship as part of the tribal tradition. This is considered as the first treaty of friendship between the Spaniards and Filipinos. "Sandugo" is a Visayan word which means "one blood" The monument, with the bronze statues of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, Rajah Sikatuna and several other witnesses, was a masterpiece of the Boholano sculptor and National Artist for Sculpture, Napoleon Abueva.

MAN-MADE FOREST IN BILAR, BOHOL

MAN MADE FOREST The Bohol Forest is a man-made mahogany forest stretching in a two-kilometer stretch of densely planted Mahogany trees located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns. Before and after this man-made forest are the naturally grown forests of Loboc and Bilar which are thick with a kaleidoscope of green foliage, different species of trees and giant ferns lining the road.

BOHOL MAJESTIC CHOCOLATE HILLS

The total number of hills is 1,268.  To be able to get the beautiful view of the Chocolate Hills, we climbed 213 concrete steps towards one of the hills that is converted into a viewing deck.  Besides the beauty of the hills, I cannot forget the fresh air.

Based on a scientific explanation about its origin—the Chocolate Hills are conical karst hills, called mogote, which were created by a combination of the dissolution of limestones by rainfall, surface water, and groundwater and their subaerial erosion by rivers and streams after they had been uplifted above sea level and fractured by tectonic processes.

Before this famous house became an attraction, I got the chance to appreciate the beauty few years back. It’s an inspiration to everyone who sees it.  It was built out of hardwork and most of all love for the family.  I have learned as i watched the house from afar. Everything in life has a it’s own reason.  The failures in love should not be a reason for us to hold on our past.

That there is success when you pair hard work with constant determination.

 10:45 am    

It’s quite a unique moment for me, I don’t even have any idea what will gonna come out from my thoughts. Uhhmmm..things happened so seemingly fast that I thought I could not adjust so easily, but maybe I really wanted to have a place and time of my own and back to my old pace..and so grateful that I did it and decided to move out.  I tried to ask myself if there is any doubts as to my recent decisions, but God!! I AM SO HAPPY.. :-)

I got the chance to enjoy a weekend with my new colleagues, the pictures portray the real and new me.  I cannot quote each and every pictures but it will surely speak of its own.

Hope this pictures will remind me how bless I am afterall.

A lot of blogs about Baguio City are scattered through the net.  Instead of defining what  Baguio City is, i feel like doing it in my own little way of sharing a picture of what the “City of Pines” before my eyes.

Honestly, my visit to Baguio City last March 27-30, 2013, was my first time ever after long years of unsuccessful planning. We departed from Cubao, Quezon City at around 3:00 pm and arrived in Baguio at almost 10:30 pm…it was a long trip but i never got tired during the trip because of the excitement.

I really love the weather, i love the thought of sleeping at night with a very cold temperature in our room even without the aircon. Truly for  those who want to excuse themselves from the warmth weather in Metro Manila, Baguio is certainly the place to relax.

This is where we stayed for 4 nights

Our first morning in Baguio (actually we stayed at Police Regional Office in Camp Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet), i really tried to take a bath without using the hot water, and so loved the very cold water.

Although I was a bit disappointed, the city is really over crowded, but I really want to enjoy the moment and the remaining days of our vacation. The vacation was also the first for me to be away from my family during the Lenten Season.

DSC01369

DSC01402   Although Baguio  is not what I expected to be as i thought, but I truly enjoyed the experience of visiting a place totally stranger to me.  It be as crowded as other cities in the Metro Manila, but the people are good and nice  who are always ready to give their smiles to their visitors. Baguio City, La Trinidad, Benguet has really lots to offer, each of us should cooperate to the development of our community specially to the proper disposal of our garbage, it will always benefit not just for the tourism but for us as individuals as well.  If someone would gonna ask me, am i going to visit the Benguet again? Surely, I will, if given the chance to take a visit.

Today, Holy Wedensday, the 27th day of March.

This afternoon I will be going to the Summer Capital of the Philippines, the City of Pines, BAGUIO CITY!!!

I know it would take me a sort of a sacrifice while going there..6 hours of long travel via Victory Liner from Cubao, Quezon City, Metro Manila….sacrifice!, is it the right word?..A lot of people would tell me, it is something a good vacation in a “busy and populated city”. Huh! I have a second thought of going there. But, as a provincial lass from the beautiful province of BOHOL, it is something that I really want to experience, taking a vacation at the same time having a time to meditate in a place totally a new place for me.  I don’t know what to  expect in this vacation but how i really wish it would be something meaningful and worth remembering.

Writing and painting are two of my favorite things not to mention travelling, reading and farming which are among of my top lists.  To be able to upload and fuse together all the ideas that keep on popping in my mind.  Whatever you will read in my blog, are what my thoughts on the day.  Honestly, I don’t know where this story go, but having to realize a few things that I would like to share to the world. You may like or dislike my thoughts.  Throughout the whole month, I am in the state of wanting for a transformation or let me say a long meditation.

This journey, I hope will take me to something worthy of a life learning experience.  This Holy Week, I truly want to experience God and to reconcile with my faith to Him. My faith was lost or almost dead when I failed my BAR Exam but I am on the process of renewing it.

I will be posting my thoughts, reviews, even pictures of my vacation probably next week.

 

I am a pure blooded provincial lass and still searching for a taste of what life is all about in urban areas, and searching for a more delicious foods that fit to my cravings… Most of the time I always crave for something that I used to back in my own place, Bohol.  But as they say, I should be flexible enough in dealing with the new change of my life and it always includes my taste of food which I usually never crave back in my own place.

I will be posting some more, but let me introduce few of those that I really love and still look forward to having more dine in the future.
