Saturday, September 1

Hello, September!

With every end, there is always a new beginning. It's time to say goodbye to wonderful August 2012 and say hello to a brand new September. Every time something ends, I can't help but look back and recollect all the memories I've had. Now that August has already ended, I try to remember all the beautiful things that happened during the said month. As I write this post, there is so much happiness in my heart because I know the previous month was undeniably perfect! There were so many events, activities and experiences worth-remembering. 



One of the most exciting and colorful festivals in the Philippines is Kadayawan. It is celebrated every month of August to give thanks for the bountiful blessings and harvests. For this year's festival, I was able to witness the grand Pamulak sa Kadayawan



For the first branch opening of Cafe France in Davao city, they organized a media brunch where bloggers, photographers and writers gathered to enjoy their delectable dishes. Thanks to the marketing team of this amazing cafe for inviting us! I attended the event with the Davao Bloggers.

Fun with Law School Friends


August allowed me to bond even more with my new found friends in law school. Thank you to the "no-class" days and long weekends! We were able to party all night long, get the right amount of sleep and rest from the stressful classes.



My food blog is no longer in hiatus. I started to bring it back to life last month. One of the major steps I took in updating it again was getting my own custom theme. The blog makeover is not yet complete but we're getting there. Thanks to Sam for helping me in arranging every single thing at Chic Food Trips.

God knows how grateful I am for the wonderful and lovely August! I'm excited to live my September 2012 and the coming months. How about you? How would you rate the happiness you felt last month?

  6. I have heard so much good raves about Davao, the place and the festivities. It's such a shame that my family and I get to travel elsewhere and never in my home country. I am going to add Davao in my must-visit places. Thanks for sharing the pictures in Davao!
