Girls Weekend Getaway: Bantayan Island, Cebu


I flew out to Cebu the other weekend to hang out with my girlfriends for our “not always annual but we try” annual girls weekend getaway. We went to Bantayan Island, which has one of the most gorgeous beaches in the country (and the world!).

The weekend was a blast, as usual. You know how it is when you meet up with your long time friends, right? Anytime you get together it’s pretty much all laughs and crazy antics. And we were all due for some much-needed girl time and beach fix, so it was a great vacay from our usual lives.

Anyway, now I shall ramble and share some photos, yeah? Fair warning: this post turned out suuuper long. ;)

Girls Weekend Getaway: Camiguin

Paras resort 2

Just a few days after Carpet Head and I arrived from our Euro trip, I was off to another adventure! This time it was to somewhere close to my hometown and with people dear to my heart. Last week, I flew out to my hometown Cagayan de Oro (CDO) where I met up with my soul sisters and we hopped off to the amazingly beautiful island of Camiguin! YAYYYY.

Some years back, my friends and I decided that we should organize an out-of-town girls getaway each year. We don’t always get to go out of town and we’re never complete because, you know, LIFE HAPPENS (a.k.a. weddings, babies, etc.), but we’ve had a few awesome trips. We’ve been to Cebu, Boracay and Puerto Princesa, and it’s been a couple of years since we’ve gone out of town so we’ve been planning this trip for a while.

Fess Up Friday: The Power of Words of Encouragement + Shoutout to My Girls

Today’s post was inspired by this post from the Life Changing Moments Series over at My Name Is Not Bob. The post is about how one writer needed a few words of encouragement to fully pursue her writing.

Some of us are pretty strong-willed and confident and don’t need any encouragement to go for what we want.  Some of us are shy and unsure and need a little push. I fess up. I think I’m somewhere in between. I’m not exactly headstrong, but I can pretty much do a lot of things on my own when I put my mind to it. I can also be a bit uncertain sometimes so during those times I do crave for a few positive words first before I can muster up the courage to do something.
