Blog give-away: Design your life 2012 planner

2011 is nearing its end. It has been a challenging and a good year all together.

I bought this planner with the help of my good friend, Aya, and has somewhat even hassled her time but I find it to be a positive point since we really got to meet-up. It was also nice to meet again her sister, Bambi. :)

Okay, back to what this blog give-away is all about: I'm giving-away a Design your life 2012 planner :) Not that I don't have anyone in mind that I could give this out as a gift but because there are so many of them, I wanted it to be a fair play. Plus, it would also be a thank you kind of award to my readers :)

The catch: You have to leave a comment stating why you want to have this planner and what do you look forward to in 2012. Leave in your data: Name(or Alias) and any way I could contact you.

This give-away is open only to my facebook, plurk, twitter friends and blogger readers and followers with Philippine address only. Winner will be drawn through on January 15, 2012 and will be announced on January 16, 2012.

When D and I went to the big metro in mid November, I happen to take pictures of D and her colleagues at work for the bar operations. Maybe for the lack of other sources, the official publication of the College of Law in MSU-IIT happened to use one of the pictures and made this bee really happy :)

My first amateur shot made public. hahaha. I just had to commemorate it.

A simple act of kindness can go a long way.

The recent tragedy brought about by Typhoon Sendong has proven that people can see beyond color, race and religion. When Mother Earth struck her anger, she took the lives of many - Men, Women and Children alike.

This video has been shared at FB and I do not own it, I simply just wanna share something that is inspiring =)

I'm supposed to write an entry about the year end party that happened last friday but I just could not find it in my heart to share something happy when everyone that surrounds me is grieving. Thus, I will write what happened after the party. The devastation that Typhoon "Washi (Sendong)" did to the beloved city of Golden Friendship.

I was on a taxi home with one of my officemate when we passed by Carmen Bridge at around midnight of December 16. The taxi driver said that the water level has risen and that the current is like a demon. I could not see it, so i opened the car window and there I saw the raging waters. I saw debris, branches of trees and even people being washed away. My heart beat so fast. I could hear women shouting TABANG (help)! I began to worry. I called my dad and was glad to hear his voice at the other end of the line.

There was a city wide black out. I was without umbrella when I stepped out of the taxi. The wind and rain were so strong. I stayed over with a friend. I couldn't sleep. The peeked through the window and saw water level rising. What I went through back in January 2009 came back again. My heart beats fast again. Siren can be heard from afar. (Little did I know that flood waters washed over Brgy. Consolacion and Burgos St. (where my grandparents used to live)

I received a text with bff D and was informed of the same tragedy that is happening in Iligan.

I am happy that my family and friends were not affected by this catastrophe. My heart is breaking, nevertheless. Friends have lost their family, relatives and even their hard earned properties.

I do not have pictures to post but everything is viral on facebook and all over the web.

I just had a starstruck moment at twitter. I've been a silent follower of celebrities (in various fields) when i replied to patty laurel's tweet. Like any other celebrieties that I've have been following who have been ignored my tweets, I didn't expect for her to tweet back. What a surprise it has been that I saw my name being mentioned in her reply.

My heart be still moment. I couldn't believe it. I replied again then when I re-read my tweet it seemed I didn't get to connect with her and sounded like I didn't grasp what she said. Its partially true since I was really happy. Realizing what an embarrassing tweet it was, I deleted it *blush*

I just came from reading another blog entry of hers and I am humbled with it. Tonight. graciously, I thank the Lord for people like Patty, who shares her life and experiences to people like me. You made her an instrument to continuously inspire us :)

black safari

Yesterday, I went to attend the Oro Banker's Safari Party. This is the first formal themed party I attended in. This is also the first party I attended with the people I work at AIB.

the stage

I initially thought of going in khaki but then I was told that my co-workers intended to go in black. So, I looked for a black get - up and my fashion-stylist-slash-bff D suggested to keep it minimal and just incorporate safari accessories. However, as it turned out, the black get-up was not pushed through and I was the only one wearing black. See below my outfit post.

It was a fun night for us at AIB sine most of my co-workers got to win cash raffle awards. They were 4 of them. Bff K was supposed to be the fifth, but since she had to go early, she wasn't able to claim the prize. We didn't gamble on posing as her since we will end up our chance of winning other prizes. I was praying hard for that Netbook. lol. Sadly, I didn't get to win on the raffle. Tough luck!

bee ❤ hhn

It is seldom for me to find a product that I would gladly share, make a testimonial of, or much less blog about but there's this product that I've heard of before but deferred using (which I regretted now).

My bff D and I enlisted ourselves to become dealers of human heart nature. Personally, I registered to enjoy the discount. I have not tried all of the products yet since I don't have a child (the baby line). What I love is the facial wash, the peppermint conditioner (which nears being phased out) and the sunflower beauty oil :)

This endeavor has become more of advocacy now, for trying out an all-natural product that is also made in the Philippines. (my share of patriotism) :D It seems that I'll be purchasing and selling more of this so I put an effort of making a logo :D haha.

What I like most about this is that it is being talked about by my group of friends. If you are around Cagayan de Oro area, comment if you want to try HHN :)

Check out Human heart nature website :D
