Youth Marine and Wildlife Camp 2013 // Bacolod! ♡

This is what I've done from April 21-28 2013.

April 21
Arielle, Me, Kayla, and Enzo
I met Enzo, Arielle, Kayla, and their parents at the airport. Then we flew to Bacolod ✈. When we got there, we went to mass, ate at Bob's and then stayed at the Sian's house for the night.

April 22

On the way to Danjugan
We had to wake up at 4 am so we could take a shower, eat breakfast, and go to the meeting place. The trip to the island took about 3 hours. Danjugan is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to! When we got there we had an orientation then we went snorkeling. After dinner, we learned about different kinds of birds you can find on the island. We slept in cabanas, inside mosquito nets.

April 23
Watchin' the sunset
We woke up at about 5 am so we could go bird watching, we went around the island and we found a variety of birds. After breakfast we learned about different kinds of corals, what they are, and what's the current state of the corals today. Then we went snorkeling to see the corals. One of the staffers, Manong Kalayo, was selling bracelets, anklets, and necklaces. So Arielle, Kayla, Nacho and I went to him to buy some of them. While we were there, we learned a lot about wisdom In the afternoon we had a dance workshop, we had "inner dancing" where you dance inside yourself. (yup, you dance inside yourself.) After that we went to Tabon beach and watched the sunset. Then we had lullabies then we slept.

April 24
Snorkeling with Arielle
We had a lecture on the types of fishes in Danjugan and then we went snorkeling to look for and identify the fishes. Then we had another dance workshop, where we had to keep dancing until the music stopped and we had to connect with someone else. Also, we had to mirror the moves of our partner. Then we had shower time, then dinner. Following that, we had a lecture on bats. They also brought bats so we could see what they look like up close, I got to hold one! Then it was time to sleep.

The enlightened ones
First thing in the morning, Arielle, Kayla, Panini, and I went down to see if anyone was up yet. Manong Jay was about to go to the bat cave and he asked if we wanted to go with him, so we did! It wasn't a really big cave, but Batman said there we about a million bats inside. After we've had breakfast, they taught us what to do when someone has broken or fractured bones and how to make a splinter. In the afternoon, we had the amazing race. The tasks we needed to do were segregate, fish ID, dance the Danjugan dance, do burpies, build a sandcastle find the eggs, fill the bucket with water, make a grabat, and kayak. It was so tiring, but it was super fun! We went to Tabon beach and watched the sunset one last time. After that we watched a video about mother earth that made everyone guilty of hurting mother earth, we put our letters for her on small boats and let them float into the sea. Talent night came after that in which our group imitated the staffers. To end the day, they made us bring our beds down so we could "sleep" by the shore and to look at the moon.

April 26
At 12 am, most of us were still up talking about life in general. Then we decided to play truth ordur. We also had a riff off and sang a lot of songs! We were supposed to watch the eclipse at 3:30 am, but all of us fell asleep at 3 am.

We woke up at about 6 am then we had breakfast and we had to finish packing. It was the awarding and I got the guitar hero award! (rak on) We wore our camp shirts and then had the camp photos. We left the island at 10 am. We had lunch at Jollibee. Then we arrived at Negros Forest at about 3:30 pm. 

That evening, most of us went to Robinsons to watch Iron Man 3 as our first reunion!

April 27
On the 27th, Arielle, Kayla, Enzo and I, along with the Sian's, went to the Sugar Mill. I ATE LOTS OH SUGAR ehehe. We went back home then we bought pasalubong for our friends and family. If ever you decide to go to Bacolod, BUY ME NAPOLEONES PLEASE. I bought mango tarts, piaya, butterscotch and napoleones for my parents! We ate dinner at Chicken House, they have the best (in my opinion) chicken inasal ever. After dinner we went bowling, and it was my first time but I had lots of fun. 

April 28
It was our last day in Bacolod, we spent it playing golf (on the Wii), we ate at a Japanese restaurant, and then we visited an old house. After that they brought us to the airport and we had to go back to Manila, and go back to reality.

So yeah, this is basically a summary of what I've been doing! 

okay bye

Camp John Doe

Last April 5-9, I had my 4th mini-camp, I went with Bel, and Therese. I was with some of my old campmates too. I learned so much from this camp, and met so much awesome people! 

With 48 campers and 8 staffers, you're never gonna feel alone cause there's always someone you can talk to about anything you want. There are 56 different people with a different personality, a different story, and a different outlook on life. You can learn a lot from them! These were some of the most memorable days of my life, no kidding. 

I also learned about human rights, more specifically equality. It's basically telling you that everyone is equal, everyone is human, we all deserve to be treated equally. No biases. No discrimination.

I made new awesome friends like Alex, Alyssa, Ronin, Pat, Crista, Sofia, Cole, Nico, Lorenzo, Alfonso, Andrea, Daniel, NiƱa ++, and I became closer with the friends I already knew, like Therese, Bel, Franco, Patrick, Jobim, Tasha, Arielle, Alexa, Nicole E., Carmela ++. Who can forget the awesome staffers? Tito Ira, Tita April, Tito Philippe, Tita Chelsea, Tita Elena, Tita Ven, Tita Krishna, and Tita Yuan!

I love you Bel and Therese <3 still missing Arielle though :( Thanks for making Camp Dream and Watt as awesome a John Doe!


Every one of these people made these 5 days one of the most memorable. They made these 5 day that could've been boring turn into one of the awesomest 5 days of my life.

Jane by Design

Jane by Design is a series about a girl named Jane Quimby (Erica Dasher) who's in high school and works at Donovan Decker as the assistant of Gray Chandler Murray (Andie MacDowell). Her bestfriend Billy Nutter (Nick Roux) and her brother Ben (David Clayton Rogers) help her through everything. 

An interesting part of this show is about how Jane and Billy are such best friends that they put each other first all the time and it really shows how strong friendship can be! Also, how Ben can be such a protective and understanding big brother to Jane after their mom left them.

I've watched the whole series and my friend Arielle and I were talking about it. BILLY AND JANE SHOULD'VE ENDED UP TOGETHER. It kinda sucks how they canceled the show after the 18th episode.

I really enjoyed watching this series and I think you should watch it too! It is summer anyway, so maybe you could try watching it! :)

CISV: Mini-camps

If you don't know what CISV is, it's "Children's International Summer Villages." I found out about this from my friend. Mini-camps are local camps that usually last for about 5 days.

During the Sem Break in 2011, I went to my very first mini-camp, "Shake, Rattle, & Roll." I met amazing people like Arielle and Mikki. We're still great friends until today! It was my very first experience and I had a great time.

Camp Shake, Rattle & Roll

Last summer (2012), I went to Camp Dream with Arielle. We met Therese, and Isabel. In my opinion my second camp had some of the best staffers! Arielle, Therese, Isabel, and I are best friends and we do a lot together :)

Camp Dream

I went to my third mini-camp last Sem Break, Camp Watt, with Arielle, Therese, and Isabel. It was in a different venue as the rest, but I met a great number of people. I was with some of my other past campmates too. 

Camp Watt

Joining CISV was one of the greatest decisions I have ever made, I learned a lot, and met a lot of great people. If you had the chance to go I think you should.

Summer 2013: March 16 ☀

Last Saturday (March 16, 2013) my friends and I went to Shangri-la to watch "Must Be Love" a Filipino movie starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo. (Yes, Filipino movies are cool.) It was actually a pretty good movie!! I watched with my friends Isabel & Therese :) The story is about a girl named Patricia or "Patchot" (Kathryn Bernardo) who's lived like a guy for all her life. Her bestfriend, Ivan (Daniel Padilla), has a slow-mo moment with her cousin Angel. It was a really funny love story and it shows you how people can change even when you don't want or expect them too.

Mmkay ciaoo!!

Thought of You by Ryan Woodward

Hi! :)

My art teacher showed this to our class one time, it's really nice! It's called "Thought of You" by Ryan Woodward

Adventure Time is a tv series, it's first episode aired on January 2007. I got addicted to this show at the beginning of summer 2011. I thought it was really stupid, like who would watch a stupid show like that? Then I watched more episodes then I started to get addicted :) My favorite character is Flame Princess! 
Flame Princess! (Adventure Time wiki)
Flame Princess is from the Fire Kingdom and first appeared in the episode "Incendium." She's the sort of girlfriend of Finn :> 

Adventure Time was created by Pendleton Ward. Rebecca Sugar is the coolest!! She draws some of the characters and makes a lot of the songs :D 

That's all I have to say about Adventure Time (for now).

mmkay bye!
