Finding Solace Through a Private Retreat

There are times that our lives hit rock bottom. When our life is in a turmoil we run to people we knew who could help us. But there are situations when human words couldn’t even console us–and confuses us even more– thus, we turn to God.

Last week, I was in deep sadness. I talked to several people expressing how I feel and seeking for advices. I was worried about a lot of things. My mind’s cluttered that I couldn’t think straight anymore, and I feel that, I am already becoming irrational with my decisions. While the people I talked to helped me in a lot of way, I just can’t find peace.

Being in this situation for a week, I realised I needed to retreat–ALONE. I needed to find solace–not from humans but from God.

I didn’t have a difficult time looking for a place to go. I already knew where I want to go–in Oasis of Prayer. I learned about this place during my recollection with my church mates and it seemed like I was meant to discover this place because it eventually became my refuge.

In my room, I knelt, I prayed and I talked to God. I spent my days praying and asking God for answers. I also took a walk while releasing my load and marveling God’s blessings through the nature surrounding me. In some occasions, I silently read Nick Vujicic’s book “Life Without Limits”. I was taciturn almost the entire time. Although there were three groups having their retreat, that didn’t bother me.

On my second day, which fell on a Sunday (and Mother’s Day, too), I heard the Holy Mass. The priest was high-spirited during the Holy Mass and I felt God relaying his messages to me through the priest’s sermon. While the Holy Mass was on-going I can’t help but to murmur “Thank You.”  That certain Mass was extra special to me because of the chapel’s structure and the choir playing cello and violin (I find these instruments very soothing and it was also my first time to hear mass with these instruments present).

Below is a photo of the chapel’s altar.


The Chapel’s Altar

Before I left, I confessed and the priest was open enough to hear my thoughts. I actually felt that God was talking to me directly through the priest’s person. Right after my confession and conversation with the priest, I felt completely unloaded from my burdens.

Finally, I found SOLACE.

My dear friends, my private retreat made me realise a lot of things and made me spiritually stronger. Even I was alone I did not feel lonely. Being alone made it easier for me to surrender in God’s loving arms. Honestly, some part of my retreat was scary because my room was isolated from the rest of the cottages where the big groups were but I fought that feeling.

I’d like to recommend for you to go on a private retreat whether you have problems or not. This way, you can reassess and realign yourself with your values and goals in life.

Thanks for dropping by.


P.S. Here are some photos of Oasis of Prayer

El Nido: My Tips for a Cheaper Trip

I’ve been to El Nido last month (April 10 to 14 to be exact) and I spent nearly P10,000.00 during our stay there and that does not include airfare. I should have spent less because we traveled in a group of 13 but how come I spent that much? I was, instantly, impecunious after the trip. Uh-oh! Let me give you a breakdown of my expenses so you’ll have an idea.

Group Expense

Group Expense

As I mentioned above, there were 13 of us who traveled together. The more heads their are the cheaper it should get.

My Own Expenses

My Own Expenses

My dinner was quite expensive because we ate in a restaurant named Altrove! An Italian Restaurant which serves toothsome pizza and pasta dishes! The manager and bar tender (who are both foreigners) would serve you themselves, too! Don’t dare leave El Nido without eating in this restaurant!

Total Expenses

Total Expenses

I believe it’s my friends fault (LOL!). He said it’s better to go there without having a concrete plan since it’s more fun to do things not having to follow a schedule or somebody’s lead. And I AGREED! Yes, it’s fun! It was, indeed, fun! This in not a sarcastic comment. I really did enjoy our entire trip!

Friends, I don’t want the same thing to happen to you so I strongly recommend that you read on ’til the last word in this post–unless budget is not a big concern for you. By the way, this applies if your point of entry is Puerto Prinsesa.

Tip # 1: Bring your own Snorkeling Equipment and Water Shoes

Rental fee in Puerto Prinsesa is 150.00 per day for each equipment and P100.00 per day in El Nido. We did rent ours in Puerto Prinsesa because of their proper sanitation of these equipments.

Savings: P300.00 to P600.00

Tip # 2: Drop by the Grocery Store in Puerto Prinsesa

Why? Because goods in El Nido are expensive compared to Puerto Prinsesa and Manila prices. Buy a bottle of water (the biggest size you can spot), canned goods, instant noodles, chips, snacks, sodas, alcoholic beverages and other things you think would be necessary for the trip. I know that you would help people in El Nido prosper if you will buy from them. But our goal, too, is to lessen are expenses, baby! And don’t complain about the heavy baggage because of the stuff you bought. You’ll just be sitting for a maximum of eight hours on the bus or in the van.

An order of TAPSILOG (Beef Tapa, Fried Rice, Egg) costs P100.00. So I hope that already is enough as a warning! :p

Savings: P500.00 to P1000.00

Tip # 3: Haggle and Bag the Cheapest Rate

C’mon baby! It’s just like trying to convince the store lady to give the shirt to you for P100.00 instead of P200.00. The better you are in bargaining the more money you save especially if you’re traveling with a big group. You can save on your island hopping tours, accommodation, transportation (for van), and other activities. And don’t commit right away to a person just because he/she said “this is the cheapest”. We almost bit this bait in many occasions.

Savings: P2000.00 to P3000.00

Tip # 4: Research

Hello! With the advanced technology, researching is now as easy as drinking water! Research on where to eat where your appetite will be satisfied, the things you can do there and how long you should stay there. A maximum of three days is already enough to do all things you can in El Nido (two tours can be combined in one day). Make it four if you’re planning on diving.

Savings: P200.00 to P300.00

Tip # 5: Plan 

My friend’s advice of not having a plan was somehow misleading (Or maybe I took his words too literally). Haha. I’m not blaming him though. I could have planned our itinerary better. This tip is somehow related to tip # 4. When you research, you can plan, and when you plan you can save money.

In our case, we threw P2,000 to the garbage bin.We often changed our plans so by the time we decided to go back to Puerto Prinsesa ahead of what we have previously planned, we could no longer refund 100% of what we’ve paid for the fourth night we were supposed to stay there. Original plan was to stay there from April 10 to 14 but we left on the 12th. Is that clear? Tell me how I could say it better! LOL!

Savings: P200.00 to P300.00

Tip # 6: Bring Smaller Bills and Coins

Believe me! This will let you save few coins and bills. There are a lot of stores in El Nido but each does not have enough change. I was rejected thrice by different stores because I was paying a hundred peso bill for the P17.00 snack I want to buy. So sometimes, if you have no choice, you might just tell them to keep the change or borrow smaller bills from your generous companions.

I couldn’t forget how happy the store owner was when I paid her P55.00 worth of coins! 🙂

Savings: P50.00 to P100.00

Tip # 7: Use your Connections

I am not talking about internet connection. I am talking about “connection” with people. Ask your friends and relatives if they know anybody from Palawan or, if they’ve been there, ask where they have stayed or what their itinerary was.

My sister’s friend lives in Palawan and they own a restaurant where the bus or van stops for lunch or for a meal. As for us, we only paid P500.00 for a meal worth P1,500.00 because the owner knows me. 🙂 Also, we only have to pay P5,000.00 for the van instead of P7,000.00 because of the connection we have.

I also have this habit of keeping contacts of people I dealt business with so I can recommend them to other people or I can still get in touch with them in case I return.

Savings: P500.00 to P1,000.00

Rue de Lipahan: A Venue for your Spiritual Activities or Social Gatherings

After nine long years, it was only yesterday that I was able to join a recollection again. The church ministry that I am part of organised this activity and fused our summer activity as well. So we have to find a venue which will cater both of our plans. Not only that, we also need one that is near and offers reasonable rates.

Let me make things clear before I formally begin. I’m not here to detail our recollection or to chronicle what we did during our outing. I’m here to tell you about the venue we have chosen.

We chose a venue where nature is at its abundance. Where we can fully relax and  take a hiatus from the “stressful life” in Manila. A tranquil place. No clamor. No horns tooting. A place where the only sounds you hear are birds chirping, wind blowing, trees applauding, frogs croaking and other sounds produced by insects (I’ll be honest, our singing voice, too). Not too much concrete walls around you, only trees and plants shielding you. And a pool where we can put our summer outing plans in to action. With all of these things, wouldn’t it be easier to find yourself connecting to God and having fun, too? (I know you answered YES!)

Our chosen location is somewhere in Silang, Cavite. It’s name is Rue de Lipahan (Rue which is a french word for Street and Lipahan is the exact street where it is situated). It’s an estimate of 2 hours drive (without stop over) from Manila if you take Carmona exit. From Carmona, you’d start to feel the cool breeze on your way up to Silang, so it won’t be too much of inconvenience if you’re riding on a vehicle without air-condition. We left Manila, with the sun at its harshest point, at around 3 pm and arrived in Rue de Lipahan at around 5pm, now welcoming us with a cool breeze.

We were all astonished with how beautiful and peaceful the place was. Here are some photos I took and like to share. Please excuse my still bad photo taking skills.


This is what you’ll see from the small hall.

The small hall is open so your eyes can easily access the natural beauty around it.

The gazebo across the hall.

Can you see the ladder at the right side? There’s actually a space where you can sleep up there. Truly something new if you have kids with you.

A tree house.

I always wanted a tree house since I was a kid. I believe every kids would want tree house of their own.

The mini pool.

The mini pool.

The pool is small and shallow (about 4 feet). Perfect for (not taller than 4 feet). But how would you like swimming in a pool surrounded by trees and where the sky is always visible? Perfect for waiting for a shooting star!


Your view from the second floor.

The pool and a huge area of fruit bearing trees, flowers and plants are visible from the second floor. Such a lovely sight, isn’t it?

Side shot of the house.

 Just took a photo of the house whilst alone in the pool side.


Second Floor Bed Room #1


Second Floor Bed Room #2

There are actually three rooms. One in the ground floor (which I wasn’t able to take picture of because it was intended for our recollection master) and two in the second floor. All three rooms are fan rooms. There are also two T&Bs available for guest use.

Another thing I appreciated is that they do not provide wifi connection. I have been to another place where they do not provide this kind of connection and you can read about it here. We all know how a wifi connection can become a culprit and ruin your supposed to be “wonderful conversation” with the people you’re with. So please, don’t attempt to bring a pocket wifi.

They actually provide almost everything that guests would need. From kitchen stuff to bedroom stuff. And you can ask the housekeeper to buy for you in case there’s something else you need (like eggs, salt, canned goods, etc.) Be reasonable though, stores are very distant from the place itself.

Here are things, which I think, they have to improve. They are the following:

  • The pool. I wish they can make it bigger and deeper.
  • Provide more pillows and blankets.
  • Provide a more comfortable mattress.
  • Flying and crawling insects are everywhere (understood because of the numerous trees and plants around). Hopefully they can provide insect nets or led light mosquito killer (inside and outside of each rooms).
  •  A larger TV screen for videoke addicts (but with poor vision).

Here are also some suggestions in case you want to see and stay in this place yourself (which I hope you would).

  • Bring insect repellants.  Again, insects are everywhere. In your room, in the T&B, pool side, gazebo, hall, everywhere.
  • Bring extra pillows and blankets.
  • Bring everything that you need. Specially ingredients you need for cooking.
  • Bring your PJs. Avoid wearing short shorts especially at night. Aside from insects, it gets really cold at night.
  • Bring ear plugs. If you don’t want the frog croaking like a cow get into your nerves, then your ear plugs can be your best buddy.
  • You may bring tents if you want. We actually did and I slept in a tent for the first time. And I think it is better to sleep in a tent because it is sealed. 🙂 No insects can get in.

I am glad that the owners are open for suggestions and are in the process of expanding their facilities. (Not too many other structures, please).

Now you know why we have chosen this venue! You, too, can book your next social gathering here or your spiritual activities. For just P6,000.00, a maximum of 20 persons can enjoy the serenity and other activities this place has to offer. They could actually accommodate up to 40 heads but for a different price. I’m sure kids, adults and oldies will all have something to do here!

Vacation in Bali Batangas

While it’s still more than two weeks before the Holy Week, hubby and I and some good old friends decided to have a vacation. Last March 7-8, 2013 were the most relaxing two days of my life. Yes, it was relaxing indeed, even if we brought Carlos with us.

With all these “deals” site mushrooming it’s so hard to resist temptation not to buy vouchers. This time around, we got ours at Deal Grocer and we didn’t regret buying it! The voucher says “Experience Bali in Batangas: Terrace Villa for Four.” It’s original price is P11,550 ($288.50) but we were able to get it at P8,660 ($216.50)! Great deal, eh?

If you really want to have a genuine vacation then, I highly recommend this place! I am no expert but I know how to appreciate beauty! Rooms don’t have television nor an iPod dock nor wi-fi. Just a bed, a cabinet and a door to your private bathroom. This is to truly let you hook yourself to the many of the activities you can do whilst there. Though this place really looks like one of my dream rest house or dream property, I do not recommend this for the elderly suffering from arthritis or any joint pain. The walk to and from your villa and to other parts of the entire place is really exhausting and there are lots of climbing up and down the stairs.

Another thing I’d like to include in this post is the food they serve. For P1,000.00 ($25), all four of us were full to the fullest and that includes our baby boy. However, I would appreciate if they served foods that you don’t often gets in your stomach in the Metro. We were served Pork Adobo, Daing na Bangus, Bulalo and 4 humongous cups of rice. Nothing surprising, right? I was just expecting for something fresh and nutritious.

To summarize all the activities you can do inside this tangible heaven they have biking, horse back riding for the children, game room (you’d really love this one! this was actually one of our favorite spot, three swimming pools, playground, animal watching and the rest is up to you (e.g. yoga, jogging, tumbling, jumping, and all that ends with -ing)

As much as I wanted to talk, I’ll just let the photos talk for me, okay?

Breastfeeding Station Slash Family Lounge in Trinoma

For the entire 8 months that I’ve been breastfeeding Carlos, I never had the chance to take advantage of the breastfeeding station inside the malls. The first reason is that I rarely go to the mall and second I didn’t know which malls have breastfeeding station.

Last week, we went home to the province without a private transport. With the rising cost of petrol and toll fees, I decided to take the public transport. That also means I have to pray that Carlos won’t get hungry while we’re on the train or in the FX. I had no luck. We were two stations far from where we’re supposed to get off when Carlos started wailing and pulling my shirt. I already knew he wanted to be nursed. So we did everything to console him and the moment we got off of the train we rushed to Trinoma and to their breastfeeding station.

The only thing I was expecting to see in a breastfeeding station is a couch, sink or refrigerator. (Refrigerator????!! What for??!! Hahaha!) When we got to the lounge/station, I was really dumbfounded because it was way, way, way, way beyond my expectations.

Here are some raw photos I snapped of what’s inside the lounge.


The couch inside the breastfeeding room is really spacious. Spacious enough to accommodate three to four mommies. The dim lights are perfect to feel relaxed and soothe your baby. The room is also well-ventilated. The room itself is really spacious. You can even bring your baby’s stroller inside.


There are even cubicles for those who want a more private space while nursing their baby. There are three cubicles available. Inside is a  huge, comfortable couch and a foot rest. It’s also a great space to calm your baby. It’s also spacious that the stroller can fit inside. Too bad the lights were off. I wasn’t able to take a photo of what’s inside.


This is the sink where you can wash your hands before and after nursing your baby.


The lavatory is really clean and smells pleasant.


There are seats available if you simply want to stay in the lounge to relax or let time pass.

Honestly, there are a lot of things going on inside the lounge. There’s a wide screen TV mounted on the wall, two Mac computers for those who want to check their social media accounts, a charging station, a spot where the youngsters can play, couches, couches and couches for relaxation,  and a lot more.

Thumbs up also to the receptionist who was very friendly and accommodating.

I hope that all shopping malls will have something like this. In this case, breastfeeding moms will feel the freedom to visit the malls because they know there’s a place for them where they can nurse their babies privately and comfortably. I know that the photos I have did not give justice to this very beautiful space, but I hope I was able to convey what I wanted to convey.

I am not being MAARTE or what. It just feels good to know that you have your private spot in a public place. This makes me want to visit Trinoma more often. 🙂

Pretty Trash Bin

Two weeks ago, the beau and I went to Bonifacio Global City to make use of the vouchers we’ve won from Deal Dozen.

Being a non-BGC baby is quite a disadvantage for both of us because we have to be on our feet for like 10 minutes. Good thing that Mr. Sun wasn’t very harsh that time. 🙂

So, as we were walking, we met this!


It caught my attention because it really looked nice!

Just imagine how beautiful Metro can be if all trash bins will look like this!

Miss-match’s People’s Choice Award

I don’t know why, but I found myself always in the look-out for new giveaways and contests thrown by fellow bloggers or companies.

And as I was in search of it, I dropped by in one of my favorite blogs which is Glam-o-Mamas. There I saw what I’ve been searching for- a partner giveaway with Miss-match for the Valentine’s Day! (Hey! Don’t get me wrong. I don’t blog-hop just for the sake of giveaways. I also do that because I really find myself awed with their articles plus I get a hint from their reviews and other stuff! Swear! Pinky promise!)

I was really excited about this  since it’s something different from the rest that I’ve encountered. It’s something interactive, requires creativity and sense of fashion! No Rafflecopter this time! Plus, the beau also benefits from this! Yippppppeeeeee! Two is really better than one!

The mechanics involve creating  your own outfit in miss-match‘s website and have friends love your style. So being this “competitive” person, I asked them to love my style. However, Glam-0-Mamas still have the final say. Sad to say, I wasn’t able to bag the prize and I was really disappointed. But a few days after they announced the winner….

…..Miss-match contacted me and told me that I won the People’s Choice Award and so I get all the prizes listed! Yehhheeyyyyyy!!

Here are the prizes we won:

Pevonia Products

  • Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser for me (the white one) and Pevonia Soothing After-Shaving Balm for the beau (the brown one)
  • Pevonia Restorative Water Lily Facial for me and Pevonia Body Renewal for Men which is for the beau again
  • Barre 3 trial for 2

I was really happy!!!! Hahahahaha! 🙂

Thank you Glam-O-Mamas and Miss-match!

Money & Time Saving Tips (When Renewing a License)

Time is GOLD so as your MONEY. Every day, we have to make a conscious effort to save even just a few coins and our precious time. At the end of the year, you’d be surprise at how much your piggy bank contains.

Last Monday, I had the chance to visit one of the renewal centers of LTO (Land Transportation Office). I am so glad that there’s one nearby where I reside! Yipppeeee! 🙂

Despite its proximity, I still wasn’t able to save money and, sad to say, time. That’s why I came up with this post to serve as a reminder to those who are about to take the same process and to myself, too.

First. Renew your license (or any document that needs renewal) before it expires.

It won’t hurt to check your license’s expiration date and make a list of their dates where you get constantly reminded. Most of the time, the expiration falls on your birthday. In my case, I was so dumb not to notice that my license had expired. It was only when the bank teller asked me to present another valid I.D. that I realized it. If only I knew it before it has expired, then I would have saved 75.00 (even more for other licenses).

Second. Bring your own pen.

It has not been my habit to bring a pen with me every time I leave home (at least when I finished studying). So this goes to those who have the same habit. You have two options in case you find yourself not having an ink. One, spot a person who has a pen or wait for the person next to you finish filling that application sheet. Two, go buy a pen worth 10 to 20 pesos which is actually only 5 pesos when bought from a local store. Both of these are waste of time and money. It doesn’t have to be your fountain pen, you know? Next time you need to renew or apply for a license, bring a pen and save 20.00 and 5 minutes.

Third. Bring candies and biscuits.

You’d never know how long the queue is or how quick the teller functions. So better bring with you something to silently munch on while waiting for your turn. This will save you from buying those 25 to 100 pesos worth of snacks, especially if the booth is located inside the mall.

Fourth. Bring a small bottle of water.

This is very important if you’ll be renewing your license that requires drug test or urine sample  (like the driver’s license). If possible, drink water on your way there so that you’re ready to pee anytime the specimen needs to be collected. This lets you save 30 to 40 minutes of your time (if you’ll go there not having the urge) plus 25 to 30.00 for not buying bottled water from the booth.

Fifth. Have all important digits written down on a paper or saved on your mobile phone.

Different agencies have different identification number. Of course, we can’t expect ourselves to have everything memorized. So make sure that you keep a copy of the list of these myriad number combination inside your wallet or on your phone so that you’re ready to write it down any time the form requires it. This will save you like 10 to 20 minutes by not calling your house help or relatives at home and start rummaging your file for those digits that you need. It’s also going to save you like 10 pesos if you’re not on unlimited call.

Sixth. If all possible, renew your license at the same time you need to buy something from the mall or do the grocery.

Again, this is applicable, most especially, for renewal centers located inside the mall. This will save you a range of 10 to 100 pesos, even more than that, depending on the location of the center. Imagine if you will do it on two separate days, then that would mean you have to spend money for your fare or gas. While waiting for the result, you can start ticking off the items on your grocery list, and for sure, once your done, your license is ready to go and that saved you time.

To sum it all up, this saves you almost 1 to 2 hours and 100 to 300 pesos. That’s already a box of treats for the kids or for family members.  All steps might not be necessary but I hope you still find them helpful and thoughtful! 🙂

To Trash or Not to Trash?

I’ve never been a fan of branded bags! Okay, I’m a liar! I really am, but I just can’t afford it! Haha! 🙂

I’ve never really had a very expensive bag. Expensive, for me, is when it goes more than P2000.00. Perhaps, the most expensive bag I had was an Adidas Sports Bag.

Okay, now I’m caught in a dilemma. I have these bags for more than two years now and the leather finally gave up. I’m thinking of what to do with it. Of course, I can’t use it any more as it looks like this.


Doesn’t look aesthetic at all, eh?

Neither do I want to throw it away. I don’t want our poor Mother Earth carry another pile of unwanted bags.

Any idea on what to do with these bags? Give your suggestions in the comments field. 🙂
