I have been with TeleTech Company for almost six years now. Although not my first job, I grew up in TeleTech. It has molded me to become a mature person. I met a lot of people and got various responsibilities that I could have never think I could. It opened my eyes to the world of employment.

With Christmas just around the corner, trips to a foreign winter wonderland or escaping the European cold altogether are likely to be on the agenda. Winter holidays are a fantastic way of unwinding after a hard year’s work. But whether your destination takes you to snow or to winter sun, there are a couple of often forgotten items that shouldn’t be left out of your suitcase – here’s a handy guide.

Though I haven't posted anything new yet, that doesn't mean I'm not visiting your blogs. This is just random post. I actually wanted to rant about not having an internet connection at home, but that changed when I checked the calendar. I shouldn't be breaking the good vibes I got earlier today, because it's the most awaited 12 - 12 - 12 of the millennium. There will be no other 12 12 12 but today.

I'm missing summer a lot. I could no longer stand the cold weather and rainy days. Me and my best bud went shopping earlier. We're preparing for the Year-End Party we will be joining together. She asked me if I'll give her a gift, and I was surprised. I was caught off guard with that question. We were laughing and giggling when I couldn't answer her.

Thank you guys for reading my Masskara Festival 2011 post. As I've said, it wasn't a total blast, and it made me want more. I promised myself to join Masskara Festival this year, and God has been good. He provided me with everything at once - vacation leave from work, enough money, and amazing companies.

I got nominated numerous times with this Liebster Award. For those who nominated me, thank you so much. I was touch that there are bloggers who noticed me. I started blogging since 2009, but I posted hard issues before. It was politics, and I got bored with my own posts. Lol

Buglasan Festival is a two-week celebration here in Negros Oriental, Philippines. Our city - Dumaguete City - is the capital. The provincial government decided to permanently put a structure where booths of every municipalities and cities are situated.

Buglasan Festival may not be one of the famous festivals in the Philippines, but it's surely one of the most colorful festivals Filipinos celebrate every year.
From the root word "Buglas" means "reeds", a tall grass-like plant found mostly in wet places. You may be thinking that Negros Oriental, our province, is a swampy area. A big

I know it's late for this post, but I still want to share about what happened to our Family Day. Halloween was the theme of the event. Since we're cost-cutting, only kids and children were given free meals.
A trick or treat was the most exciting activity. Kids were toured around collecting candies from different stations. Our supervisors wore horrible costumes and make-ups. There were kids who reakkt screams, 'coz the make up were just so real.
Let me share you some photos.

Siquijor Island is not only known for its folklores, magic, premitive healing, and mysterious stories of supernatural beings. It also gives us the enchanting beauty of Cambugahay waterfalls. It's a five-level waterfall cascading from the top. Viewing it from the first time, the tedious hiking and trek downward would definitely be forgotten.

Thank you so much for all your comments on my Twin Lake Exploration post. I was inspired to write about another road trip that recently happened. This time, we're a group, so it's more enjoyable. I am also sorry that it took ages before I could post another one. I went to join Buglasan Festival in Dumaguete City and Masskara Festival in Bacolod City. I had a very busy week.
Let me share to you how I enjoyed my roadtrip to Pulangbato Falls in Malabo or Ocoy Valley.

One of the major attractions in Negros Oriental is the Twin Lakes (Balinsasayao and Danao) of Sibulan. It is situated 12 km west of the town of Sibulan, which is only 6 km away from the City of Dumaguete. These two small craters of freshwater lakes are rising 1000 feet above sea level. It’s really deep than even a sea dragon can stay under! The vastness and serenity of the water is really breathtaking.

Our company arranged another outing in the same resort. I am a bit friendlier and got more outgoing these days, so I joined the event. I even volunteer to be part of the Registration Team. We had to wake up early, and get to the resort earlier than the rest of the people to prepare.

"Ohana" means family - extended family in Hawaiian culture. Why Ohana Summer? 'Coz it was the first summer outing that I felt more comfortable and much closer with my colleagues in the office. Our company wanted us to feel that we're family.

Hi bloggers! I've been thinking real hard what best to post on September, so it took me two weeks to post something this month.
Certainly not beach and pools! So, I guess I'll share my nature tripping and road trips. But before I start posting them, let me first share my Sta. Monica Beach Resort summer experienced. I already mentioned this resort in my last post (HERE), and I don't like breaking any promises.

I visited Huiz Pool Swim Park last 2010 during our Culmination on my first month in Caregiver training. The resort is 7000 sq m good for occasions like gatherings, getaways, weddings, birthdays, and the like. The place was new then, so I was so excited to visit it. You would really find "paradise away from the hassle of city life" when you get to visit the place. Let me tell you briefly about how I came up with Caregiving course and enjoyed with Caregivers at Huiz Pool Swim Park.

Sta. Monica Beach Resort was one of the big resorts found near the city. It offered different services and caters all occasions like weddings, birthdays, seminar, and the like. The place was closed last June 26, 2012, since it was bought by a private person who deemed to use the resort on his own. Nevertheless, if in case the new owner decides to open it again for public, you can view the resort HERE.

Who could say no for a summer outing? NO ONE! The fun under the sun could be very memorable, especially if we spend it among our friends. So despite the hectic schedules we have, my friends and I really find a way to meet up and catch up with each other in Bahura Resort and Spa.

Getaways excite me the most, especially with my favorite buddies. It was an ordinary shift at work when we were talking about where to spend our major summer vacation. Since Antulang Beach Resort has always been one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the island (Negros Oriental), we decided to get an inquiry for their Day Tour package. We booked and impatiently waited for the day.

Since we (Filipinos) are celebrating Nutrition Month for July, my first post will be about fitness. Just recently, Fun Runs and Night Runs have been one of the most popular events we can hear all around. And that is good news! People are getting more conscious on their health and physique. Though most still cannot let go of their vices, at least they have learned how to balance life.

I now officially consider Dumaguete City as my second home. It beats Iligan City for the unforgettable moments and memories I can keep in mind. For my five years here, Mongkeys Team has been one of the circles I’ve been part with. To celebrate our Fifth anniversary, we decided to hold it in an enjoyable place yet offers affordable rates. Not to mention that it’s within the city.

Excitement knocks me down when a friend invited us on her wedding day in Antulang Beach Resort. The place is one of the best resorts in Dumaguete that provides world-class services and amenities. Filipino stars like Ryan Agoncillo got engaged with Judy Ann Santos in Antulang Beach Resort. Though it's my second time here, the fun and excitement are still the same. If you are interested to check out Antulang's "How to get there" info, check my post about Antulang Beach Resort - Super Fun DayTour.

Looking for relaxation, fun, and indulgence? Bambulo Resort can be the right place you guys are looking for. It is where kids can enjoy while adults can relax.

After I posted my Bambulo Experience last April, most of my friends got curious about the place. My inbox has been flagged with private messages about the foods and menus of the restaurant. So to provide them with updated prices and rates, I invited one of my badminton buddies to lunch at Bambulo Restaurant. We invited another friend for more fun, and the three us head off to Bacong with growling tummy.

The month of June is always known as the best month to hold wedding celebrations. We even have terms like June Wedding for June bride. I was searching for good topics to feature on my blog, and I came upon the idea of posting events and places where wedding bells are mostly held. Of course, I will feature weddings I already attended and venues I have visited.

Bonding with our families should not be an option to make. It’s always a responsibility to give time to each member of our family. Friends and ‘barkadas’ can come and go, but a family would never leave us no matter what would happen. I know that most of us are more comfortable being with friends, but that should not be the case. In life, only a family would never leave us alone.

I easily get bored when stuck at home. When my close friend announced her visit here in Valencia, Negros Oriental – a first-class municipality in the province – I immediately think of a place where I could take her to. She’s practicing her photography skills, so I was thinking maybe we could go some new place in town. I was browsing Facebook.com when an FB friend posted pictures about Bambulo. I was so thrilled to find out that the restaurant was back again. So, let me share to you how we so much enjoyed the place.

A mundane afternoon can always be a special one! I proved that right when we visited Tierra Alta Residential Resort before their Clubhouse Grand Opening last May 29, 2012. With my ever outgoing friend/photographer/BFF/advisor, we decided to visit the resort to check what’s really new since it started to operate last August, 2010.

I am always fascinated in trying out new restaurants and fast-foods in town. It’s not that I am good in flavors and foods, but I just loved exploring new places to hangout with my friends. Depending on the mood, I feel that there’s always the right place to relax and chit-chat. I can’t imagine bringing a broken-hearted friend crying a river in a food-chain and everyone else are glaring at us. That will never happen! Of course, I will take that friend to a nice private place where the two of us can talk to. Likewise, a romantic date will never become such if you would take that special someone in a fast-food restaurant. It will always be in quiet beautiful place sparkled with magnificent lights and adorations. These are some good reasons why I always love to check out nice places nearby, and Bambulo is really one of the great choices I can assure.

It was one ordinary day when my friend invited me for a photoshoot – yes, a photoshoot! – at Siquijor island. I was so thrilled of the fun and adventure I would get from the place. I packed my things for an early morning trip from Dumaguete City to Siquijor. I woke up as early as 4:30 AM, but STILL, I was late for the first trip - 6:00 AM. We then took the second trip at 9:00 AM, because we we’re both frustrated to go to Siquijor.

Summer has always been my favorite time of the year. Being born in April, I seem to become a sun-loving person. When I was a kid, I get really depressed when it's raining outside. I feel like it would be the last day of the world. Watching TV at home is no way to compare the fun I got from running around and playing under the sun. I wouldn’t even bother the scolding I would get just as long as I was able to play the whole day.
