Promoting Tourism in the Philippines Through #SharePH Campaign

If there is one thing that I am thankful of today, it is having an opportunity to join the Twitter Conversation hosted by Rappler.com wherein several social media enthusiasts talked about what's life like in Davao city. The said Twitter party is part of the #SharePH and #ShareDavao campaign which aims to promote the tourism in the Philippines by focusing on major cities in the country. I'm happy to announce to everyone that Davao is the first city which became part of this amazing campaign and that the Davao Bloggers Society is part of the first blast of #SharePH and #ShareDavao.

The long wait is finally over. Party goers and ravers can now get their tickets for the most awaited event of the year in Davao city - Carte Blanche 2014: Electric Music Carnival which is set to happen on November 15, 2014 at Crocodile Park Concert Grounds.

"Husay and Malasakit" in Everything We Do

If there's one gift that you could give to the world, what would it be? If you can make other people's lives better, how would you do it? What are the things that you are willing to give up just to make other individuals smile and experience happier lives? Are you willing to offer yourself to be of service to the community? To the people surrounding you? Most importantly, can you give without expecting anything in return?

Mother Theresa, a selfless woman who has spent her life helping those who are in need, once said "At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread — but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing — but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks — but homeless because of rejection." Imagine a world where everyone acts like Mother Theresa, devotes one's life to serving other people, sharing one's life with the community and giving whatever one has wholeheartedly. For sure, the world will be a better place to live in. There would be peace and happiness in our minds. Everyone will live in harmony, love and compassion.

Meet Sammy Snooze and Let's #WakeUpSammy

Sleep is one of the things I value in my life. I seldom get a chance to enjoy a good sleep due to the demands of my studies, work and personal life. There are just so many activities to do and attend to every single day. In fact, I even consider sleep as a luxury and a gift. It’s not something that I can easily get and this is the reason why I envy Sammy.

Who is Sammy? Well, he is known as the sleepiest man in the Philippines. One of my friends shared about this guy, which made me interested in him. I learned that he loves sleeping a lot to the point that he misses some important appointments, meetings and events in his life. There’s no question that his most favorite part of the day is the time when he is asleep.

In case you want to learn more about him, you can add him on facebook: Sammy Snooze. Here’s a photo of him and his dog named Snoozy. Just like his master, Snoozy also loves to sleep a lot. Yes, a lot.

A Single Lady's Prayer (Happiness and Love)

Lord, I thank you for everything that you have given me. Thank you for the gift of happiness and peace in my heart. It always amazes me how Your works do wonders. I once got my heart broken and never thought that I would be able to get out of it alive. I was torn into pieces but Your love helped me survive it all. You made me believe that everything was just passing and that things will get better someday. And yes, it eventually did.

Thank you for the gift of friends and loved ones who have been making my days brighter. Thank you for giving me these lovely people in my life who have never given up on me. I know that there are times when I’m not a great person to be with but they have stayed by my side no matter what. They are always there to back me up and to support me in whatever I do. For all these, I am truly grateful.

I believe that it's one of the secrets to living a happier and healthier life. I don't mind cancelling all my appointments for a particular day to go on a "Pamper Me Sesh" which usually includes getting my nails done, visiting the spa, enjoying a hot bath and cleaning up my eyebrows. I consider myself lucky because there are so many establishments in Davao city which specialize in offering these kinds of relaxing services.

Live with Gratitude: Happiest Thank You to You

I live by gratitude. If there are two words that I would like to say and hear every single day, it is “Thank You.” These words mean a lot especially when they are spoken and delivered sincerely. In the latest advertisement by Coca-Cola Philippines, they did a great job in showing how great it is to live by gratitude in our daily lives. Allow me to share this to you:


After watching this 3-minute video, I start to remember all the people whom I am truly thankful of in my life. I am inspired to let them know that I appreciate everything they’ve done for the past few years of my existence. I believe that they deserve more than a thank you from me.
