Joining the fun

We are the best singers in the world according to my best source and that’s me 😉 Videoke is one of the things I associate with good times, alcohol and this country. Here’s my first contribution to the #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines meme: Belting out. It’s more fun in the Philippines. Tapos kung kalokohan ang usapan, may pambato…

It’s more fun in the Philippines

The New Tourism Campaign. It’s more fun in the Philippines. It makes more sense to me now. I kept on wondering about the reason behind my German friends’ return last year. They were truly happy to be back. Yes, they are correct. It’s more fun in the Philippines. My friends love the place so much…

Satisfaction

I’m a tourist guide and I’ve been at it for more than two years. I have sacrificed a lot because I believe that it is worth it. It’s not a dream job because if it is a dream job, it wouldn’t be “real” right? 🙂 It’s all real to me. The possibilities of doing a…

Signed, sealed & must be delivered

In the next months, I will embark on an important assignment that would test my resolve to be the best version of me. The paper has been signed this afternoon, the gear has been purchased, a few more meetings in January, and we’re all set. I have prayed for this opportunity and now, it’s here. …
