My Take on ......*Indonesia*

Asian destination….Southwest of the Philippines is the Wonderful country of Indonesia.  Another discounted airfare for me and my friends that we got early this year.  It’s not really on my wish country to visit and explore, never heard a lot about the beauty of Indonesia until the devastating Tsunami last 2006 that hit one of their tourist destination…Bali.

We will be spending three days in Bali and 2 days in Jakarta.  Arrived in Jakarta when the entire country still asleep.  We transferred immediately to their domestic airport to catch the very first flight to Bali.  Bali is like the Boracay of the Philippines.  Tourist destination, night life, shopping and food tripping. Relaxation at it’s finest.

Ang ganda ng airport nila…the old airports are under renovation to adapt to new design, system and technology.

 J. Co donuts recently became a craze/hit in Manila especially to those who loves donuts and sweets.  They are originally from Indonesia, so we made sure to visit one of their branch in Bali

And after a super banat na buto morning we met our friends and had lunch at one of the friendly neighborhood carinderia.

"pg (patay gutom) meal"
And we went to Discovery Mall, and we had our snack of Roti and Milk Tea. The mall is just couple of blocks away from our hotel so to burn all the calories, we decided to walk back and passed by some souvenir shops.

addicted to milk tea

Then back to Jakarta for another day, fortunately it was Jakarta Culinary Festival, a month long celebration for food enthusiasts.

my motto...hehehe
Then off to Manila…

Bible Verse

For a peaceful and smooth flowing relationship, one of the factors to consider is communication.  Constant communication whether by mail, e-mail, text, post, chat, talking over the phone or personally is very significant.  But we cannot control our emotion sometimes and problem occurs.  Instead of arguing it out we should listen and understand our partner, family member, office mates or friends to iron things out.

I saw a bible verse from one of the social networking sites and began to realize that it is true…

Proverbs 15:1
New International Version (NIV)
15 A gentle answer turns away wrath,
              but a harsh word stirs up anger.

*New Year*

New Year….New beginning….my 2012 has been a roller coaster ride, up and down with a few bumps on the side, it started good and becoming better but in Q3 was the worst bump, it drained me mentally and emotionally the most.  Good thing my family and friends are always around me.  But who am I to question God’s plan, he was preparing me for my best ride.  He showered me with blessings all year round and the best present I received without expecting.  He opened my heart and my mind for the person he wants for me.

This year will be a year of hope, love and happiness.  May my friendship continue to be bonded, may my family be healthy all year round, may the company I worked for continue to progress, may Jumbo continue to be a good baboy ay dog pala and may my ever DEARest be happy and loving as always.

Everything happens in God’s time and he fulfills all the plans he has for us.

Welcome 2013!!!!
