Thank You For Another Year!

Im very thankful that I am given another year to explore. I thought this year would just passed by just like the other birthdays but thank you to my newly found CDObloggers family for making this day extra special. Even if you did made me feel bad this day but as Chiq Montes said "wala man to gituyo" because you taught I already know that you are going to surprise me. Thank you for the candles I blow and my first ever cake. No im not kidding! I dont really celebrate my birthday. There's a reason for it and I just hope someone will change this dumb thoughts or atleast show me that its ok to celebrate... lols (Im being dramtic na!). Anyways, Thank you also for the unending greetings in my Facebook Wall. Gosh! messages flooded there! Thank you to my KMPH family, plurk friends, and to some high school friends also.

My First Wordcamp!

This was my first to attend Wordcamp Philippines 2009 with Cherry, Chiq Montes, Janlac and Magman today. We were actually delayed when we arrive since we woke-up already late, and the driver doesn't know where Asian Institute Management- Wordcamp venue is located. Good thing when we arrived the program haven't started and we were able to register and meet some of the soon to be speaker (Lyle Santos) and emcee (Migs Hipolito) of Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3. The event was all in all fun and exciting. We get to meet fellow bloggers and get to learn useful tips in using Wordpress, blogging, citizen journalism, and updates of Firefox.

By the way, I will share the program of the event so you will have some overview of the who and what in Wordcamp 2009. (lols)

After Wordcamp we went to Greenbelt and stroll around. However Chiq Montes didn't accompany us since she still had a meeting with PBA organizers. It was also nice meeting fellow plurkers Crixxie and Evanne who are kind enough to gave us a ride back to Kabayan Hotel.

My First Scary Plane Travel

I and my fellow CDObloggers travel Manila today. Some of us will attend the WordCamp and the others are going to spend weekend in Bagiou. This was my first time to travel Manila and my first time to travel by plane. I have heard some funny and unforgetable experiences from cousin and relatives on their first travel by plane already and now I finally had my own stories to tell too.

My first experienced was scary... as in very scary! 

We travel through Cebu Pacific Air 390 and boarding time was even delayed in a couple of minutes. When were in the air we experienced turbulence since the weather was not good. The moment the plane starting to get a little bit of shaky I was really scared. Oh my gosh! We even experienced a 3 seconds rush. Its like the plane is avoiding something and just wheeeewww... I cant really explained! Some of the passengers already vomited because of that sickly feeling. 
I know what we had experienced just recently was not really that scary to regular travelers but man that was way to much for a newbie. 
Anyways, that's it folks I'm going to rest now. I just hope when we go home to Cagayan de Oro the same experienced wont happen again. :-)

Citihardware-Bulua Opening

Mindanaoan invited the CDO bloggers to attend the Grand Opening of Citihardware-Bulua. However, the others were sick so Janlac and I were the only one who attended. The good thing was Magnus along with his wife- Sharon and his mom was also invited so Janlac and I went to Citihardware with them. The opening started at 6pm and lots of guest was there. There are lots of foods and drinks serve for the guest and also raffle draws which some guest were able to bring home appliances as the price. After dinner the guest take a look at the products display. We were able to get a free giveaways when we get home too...
