Because I love Orange

They are said to be a symbol of love, beauty, war and even politics. It is said that they existed for 35 million years already. They have about 150 species. They are used as confetti, medicine, salad and raw materials for perfume. (University of Illinois Rose Garden). 

I felt I reached heaven when I saw an Orange rose made use as a centerpiece on my graduation cerymony. 

Creativity-my other Side

I am currently taking my doctoral degree and I am loaded with readings, activities, assignments, reports and all sorts of paper plus exams. So to unload my full mind, I do crafts. And these days I am into butterflies. So I made this from what I saw in youtube. 

Since Christmas is fast coming. I made this Butterfly Christmas Tree!


Long have I waited. Years of challenges.

Tons of patience.

Millions of words and ideas formed.

Light bulb moments.

Standing by my own words.

Believing in impossibles.

Finding a way and making it.

There is no shortcut in doing it.

Learn to give and pave way.

Stand from failures.

Keeping the faith alive.

Just to have you. 
I achieved you once. 

I will have you again. 


Malumpati Health Spring, Pandan, Antique, Philippines

Hi, just got home splunging to the world’s cleanest and coldest river. The Malumpati Health Spring in Pandan, Antique, Philippines. 

From Iloilo, it is about 7 hours bus ride traversing the mountain rails of San Joaquin, Iloilo and Antique. 

When from Caticlan, it is about a half an hour bus ride to Pandan. Then take a tricycle to the Spring. 

The food is very reason. We ordered rice for 15 persons and we are shocked when the rice arrives that it is more than what we expect. 

Entrance and other activities are so affordable. There are also places for overnight with prices ranging from 500-1000 pesos only. 

At first sight, it is just an ordinary river. I tried to deep my feet and oh! so cold…the coldest river water I have ever tried. Not just it is the coldest but also it is the cleanest in the world. Amazing!
