After the baccalaureate mass with friends from college

This was after the baccalaureate mass with my friends in college.  It seems that long time ago, I am enjoying my college days with my friends.
Now we separated from each other. Some work here in the other cities.
Some of my friends work in my home town. Some friends work over seas.  I am now processing my work papers as of the moment here in my home town.

What makes this baccalaureate mass important it?
My Grandmother is joining with me at this very special occasion of my college days. She is always there for me. I am always grateful for my Mama for always being there by my side no matter what. I may not a good granddaughter to her in some way but I always love her. This is I and my Mama after my baccalaureate mass at school. We both are wearing white which is perfect to link for Wednesday Whites.

Do you still remember your baccalaureate mass back in college? Who was with you?

A Yellow private plane at Dahilayan Adventure Park

I see this yellow private plane on the ground. Photobucket I wonder how much is the fare if you want to go for a ride. I am sure looking Dahilayan Adventure Park above is just breath-taking and scenic view to enjoy. I wonder who owns this yellow private plane.

I know that I cannot afford to ride in the yellow private plane. Photobucket We ride the zip line instead. This is my yellow pass in my wrist. Photobucket You need the yellow pass in your wrist or else you cannot ride the zip line.
Have you ride in a private plane before? Where did you? How much is the fare?

My adventure continues at Dahilayan Adventure Park

This is the continuation of my first post about Dahilayan Adventure Park. This is located in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. It is a beautiful park with breath-taking views. Do you love the nature? I am sure that you will love this park too. 

Photobucket This is called the Forest Park. You can see how beautiful the wood is. It gets chilly here especially in the morning. I want to thank my cousin and her family for bringing me here at Dahilayan Adventure Park. This is a wonderful place for the family to bond. I hope that my Aunt J and her family will visit this place. They love nature and the woods. This is an ideal place for them. There are many things to do here. Photobucket As for now, please enjoy some of my pictures that I took from Dahilayan Adventure Park.

My kids and cousins at Country Village Hotel

This was July 7th 2012 when my kids and cousin flew from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro City. I was not around that time. I was in Boracay accompanying my Aunt’s friend from New York. I am his tour guide. Anyway, this is the day when they checked-in at Country Village hotel. Both my Aunt and my Mom stayed at the same hotel. They both stayed in second floor with just few rooms away from each other.

They all bond each other. I am glad that my kids can communicate with their American cousin. It seems like they are friends for a while. Actually they met when my cousin was a baby. The bond they have before continues when they meet each again six years after. I get this picture from my Aunt’s Facebook. Can you find my kids? The only boy is my oldest. My little girl is the third girls in the picture.

Pizza night with friends

My sponsor (my Aunt’s friend) and I arrived from our trip to Boracay that day. We went to the city that night to have some pizza.
My Aunt, my little cousin and my Aunt’s friend took a taxi and went to the pizza restaurant.
My other friend is with me too. I also called my gay friends to have the pizza with us.
I want them also to meet my Aunt, my cousin and my Aunt’s friend.

The Big Flat Bread pizza restaurant is not crowded which I am thankful for. We ordered some fruit drinks.

My cousin invited me to go with them at Dahilayan Adventure Park in Manolo Fortich. This is my second time to visit the park. I am very thankful that my cousin paid my entrance. All I need is fair and pocket-money. My cousin goes with me too. I am thankful that my Grandma allows me and Carlo to join with my other cousin at Dahilayan Adventure Park.

It is a pretty drive all the way to the park. The scenery is just breath-taking. I had the fun while we were there at Dahilayan Adventure Park.

Celebrating my Grandma’s birthday at the cemetery

This was at Green Hills cemetery in Cagayan de Oro City. It is my Grandma’s birthday that day. We visited her at the cemetery during her birthday. We know that she is gone yet we cannot forget her birthday. We miss my Grandma Letty so very much. She is one best Grandma in the world aside from my other Grandma. When she was still alive, she helped many people and that includes me. She had helped me too with my education. I will never forget her.

When she was alive, I helped her clean her house. I go with her where she wants to go. I even took care of her when she was sick. It is my way of thanking her for all the help she give to me and  my family. I know that my Grandma Letty is gone but she will remain in our heart forever. When my Aunt was here, we visited her too with my cousin K. I am sure that if Grandma Letty is alive, she is happy to see her great-granddaughter K. Wherever you are Grandma Letty, I hope that you are very happy.

love traveling

I am Diana and 28 years old. I live in Cagayan de Oro City. I graduated my college degree lasts March 30 2012. I finished Bachelor of Science Hotel and Restaurant Management. I love HRM because I want to become a manager someday in a hotel establishment. I am so glad that my Mom continues to support me in my studies, even though  I am a hardheaded daughter to her. So bless that I have the mom likes her whose always there when we need help.

Part of being a HRM student your expose to different kinds of functions and social etiquette. You learn the table manners and how to use the chinaware,glassware and silverware. I love being a HRM student because I have been to those places that I am always dreaming of  like Dakak Camiguin, Bohol, Boracay and Cebu. I am so happy that I am a HRM graduated student. I have no regrets of taking up this course. I am linking this entry to Blog Photo Challenge.

Tell me what I did wrong?

I am Diana and I am 28 years old. I was born in Cagayan de Oro City. I have 2 kids a boy and a girl. My life is full of trials and obstacles, but despite of that I am still standing and no matter what happen only GOD is my strength. When I am deeply hurt I do not know what to do.
But since I have kids I never give up because they are my inspiration and they are my life. When I was a teenager I remember I promise to myself that I do not want to have a broken family. I want to have a happy life. When I get pregnant, I decided to stay with the father of my kids, because I do not want that my kids to experience and feel the life when I was a child. But since I have respect to my mom who is the one who support my financial expenses and she also provide the needs of my kids. I was still young and only high school graduate. I promise to myself I will finish my college degree and to continue the relationship we had with my live-in partner. I am not really close to my mom. I was raised by my grandmother and aunts. They were my guardian in Cagayan de Oro. Life is not fair. I am not blaming anyone of what happen to my life. I want to continue the life that I choose because I know I can surpass all of this trials and obstacles. I just found that the father of my kids is having an affair with his dear cousin.  I was shock I never taught that he can do that to me. I trust him with all my heart and soul. But what happen all my hard works and effort is useless. But I guess GOD has more plans for me because he will not give this trials if I can not handle this. So tired but happy for what happen.

My Mom’s 47th birthday

This was 2011 when my Mom celebrated her 47th birthday. It was held in VIP hotel here in our city. She flew from Cebu to have her birthday here. I am thankful that my Mom celebrated her birthday here. How I wish that she also invited my Grandma. Most of her high school classmates were invited on her birthday party.

It was a fun party. She has a beautiful cake design with sea, fish and scuba diver. My Mom used to teach scuba back in Cebu.
I think her birthday cake really describes what her interest is. My other Grandma was invited too. I met most of my Mom’s high school classmates. I am so happy for my Mom. I want to wish her more birthdays to come. I thank God for blessing her good health. I know that we do not have close relationship but I am still thankful for all she has done to me. I want to say thank you Mom for taking care of my kids too. I miss and love them very much. I know that they have better future in your care.

A flower girl at my Aunt’s I wedding

I am not sure how old am I on these pictures. I was one of the flower girl’s at my Aunt’s I wedding. She is now living in Minnesota, USA. I think I was on my 3rd or 4th grade here. I was very happy that I am part of her wedding. I will always cherish these pictures.

I am always grateful to my Aunt I for all the helped she gave me. Aunt I and my Mom grew up together. They both went to same Catholic school when they were high school. They are like sisters. My Mom stayed in my Grandma’s house. My Mom grew up at my Grandma’s house. She left my Grandma’s house and she was pregnant. Yes! My Mom is a teen-age Mom as well.

Aunt I is always there for me. She is like a Mom to me as well. She is always there for me when the world is against me. I know that I owe her big time. One day God will help me to pay all she did to me. I want to say thank you to Aunt I for everything. Even at a young age, she loves me already. I am grateful for that Aunt I.
