I’m falling to pieces… 😍 How I wish I’ll be watching you live this year. #throwback #potd #thescript #philippines @thescript
After tons of serious work and stressed I handled these past months I/we finally got the chance to be out of town even just for a day. The “actual” plan is to stay at our province, Quezon since the kids have long vacation/sembreak but it was cancelled due to transpo problems occured.
My heart is so close to Tagaytay because we have been staying and goofing around there the past years. I just miss the peaceful and solemn place the lake gives.
Last November 2, 2012, since it was a holiday/no work, my auntie invited me and my sister to be with them and go to Tagaytay. Yay! Finally, my wish. Tagaytay! I, myself do not know the itinerary, it was all an expected trip for me. By the time we reached our destination, I was surprised that we will be visiting a sacred place, Caleruega.
After seeing the beautiful Taal Lake, long drive again and then poof a mountainous view, it was like in the Highschool Musical scene where Gabriella and Troy ran into.
Try to indulge the captured moments..
I promise you, they are all candid shots. I had so many back shots taken by my photographers but I chose the three above. I wonder what it means. Maybe, I am looking forward to my dreams and being ready to face everyone else again with a whole “Camille” I used to be, someone that was way better yet someone everyone else liked before.
Here’s the great view of Nasugbu, Batangas. I do not where we were but I know that time I am safe and sound. It is that great view, the nature that depicts my inner self to think and rethink.
And here it is the Caleruega Church. It hit the Top 1 rank among the stained glasses I have seen so far. Lord, why so beautiful? The sun strikes thru the glass and makes a perfect, colorful, spark, detailed, natural image of Him. Such a beautiful man-made thing.
One of the best things ever, to flip up your feet up and see the blue skies. Infinite feeling. The break that was good.
Stained glasses. And these made me remembered the “The Last Song” movie. :’(
The best chapel ever, so far. You need your climbing skills to peek this silent and peaceful chapel.
“Close to Nature, Closer to God” I do believe in this saying. To have peace is to be in peace.
Take time to visit Him! Pray more! Be bolder and closer to God. Amen.
It’s more fun in Caleruega. It’s more fun in the Philippines.
And the vacation got so very special because I celebrated my 20th birthday in Boracay with my extended family.
I slept early May 17th and I was not able to wait until midnight just to greet myself. Heh! So we all woke up early for the island hopping..everyone were so not in their state of mind until Tita Glad’s said, “Ay, ate Happy Birthday!” then everyone greeted me.
So the highlights of my special day were…
Note: There are lot of pictures of the beautiful places. Can’t control myself not to take shots of the nicest things/places in Boracay.
The softest sand ever!
The famous Jonah’s shake!
Sweetest surprise for my 20th.
Happy Birthday to me!
So the following pictures are the Part II of that day, May 18th.
“Boy Abunda pose”
So that’s me!

Look who visited that day, Tito Do!
Hi, Tito Do. We missed you. We’ll be missing you.
Chori Burger and Isaw!
And that made my May 18th of 2012! Thank You, Lord!
I really want to share how great my summer was this year. Honestly, it was the best summer I had ever in my life except the fact that my parents were not there.
This summer getaway was planned last year November/December i think. So the first plan was all of us my fam (the four of us) and the fam of Tita glad’s. But it turned out the other way around. Luckily, catris and me was able to join the vacation.
I was not able to share to you how busy I am with the interviews I got and I was too hesitant and confused if I can have that summer vacation. I was eager to have a job because of my college friends working already. They started working a week after our graduation. But they were not able to enjoy the last vacation they could ever have.
Luckily, my decisions and fate intertwined. Yes. I was there. The ticket booked to my name was used!
That summer vacay was great!
As we planned before, the dates would be Mid-May. April came, Tito Do passed away, plans were almost cancelled but in the end the vacay occurred.
Thank You Lord for guiding us all throughout the short vacation we had. All were safe and happy.
Here are the great captured moments of us..
Day one turned out so well, tiring, FUN!

Y so happy?
Gash, I will never ever do this again. Seriously.

And that what happened with our day one in Boracay. Tiring but indeed worth walking and trying. Happy day was it.
