Daily Prompt: Sincere

via Daily Prompt: Sincere

It took me a while to decide what to post but the first thought in mind was – the world needs more sincere people (but I want to blog about my newest craze too. Pardon the somewhat hi-jack).

Nowadays I feel that the world have shortage of it. But you can’t really forced people to be sincere. You have it in you to believe or discard their opinions about you. Sometimes, the sincerity of a person towards you is not a reflection of who you are. It is a mirror of what they are. 🙂

Maybe that’s why I like traveling and pictures so much because they gave me the most genuine feeling in the world. In travel, thanks to my big God, my paths has always been showered with sincere people. With pictures, everything is just unchanging. Once the picture is taken, it will be unchanged forever.

To end this post about sincerity, here’s a snaps of my latest craze from Photobook Philippines where my 2 loves meet (Travel and Pictures):

(1) _16 inch x 16 inch Couple Photo Pillows


(2) _Canvas Landscape 36 x 24 Inches


How I did it?
Step 1: Buy a voucher at Metrodeal. Stuffs from PhotobookPH is very expensive without a voucher. Better get one. See below my current vouchers.

(1) Canvas Landscape 36 x 24 Inches orig price at P6500. Voucher price at P1549.
(2) 16″ x 16″ Couple Photo Pillows orig price at P2000. Voucher price at P1099.
(3) 14×11 LL Imagewrap Lay Flat (24 Pages) orig price at P5600. Voucher price at P999.

Step 2: Go to PhotobookPH website and search for the desired product. There are lots of ready made templates to choose from. Unfortunately for these items, you can’t edit at Photobook Designer. Payment is at the web designer too. Let me know if you are interested. I’ll gladly help. 🙂

Step 3: All transactions are online so you will need a Credit Card to pay.

And ohh, Metrodeal and PhotobookPH is not paying me to advertise. This is just a personal post because I am just so happy with the result. Weeeeee!

My Sincerest apology for the hijack. If I didn’t tell you that it was, would you know about it? Hmmm!

Thankful For The Hundred Thumbs Up!

My first 100! Thanks a LOT for being one of them. 🙂

It’s not much but I wanna remember that today I reached my first 100 followers. 🙂 I have always been a fickle minded blogger…transferring from one platform to the other, changing blog names, blog address and all that. I clearly didn’t mind about followers and likers.

I write for myself. I easily forget things. When I do, I would always feel the emptiness for not being able to do anything nice. I am afraid of just existing…to live day today mundanely.

I still write for myself now but with an additional vision to bring people to live their lives out of the usual box as well. There’s just so much to do in this world. And I believe trekking and travelling is out of that box.

Being liked  & followed, for me is somehow a testament that I have slowly reached my vision. 🙂 And I thank you for being one of those people who gave me the thumbs up.

Yay! Toast to more years in the blogging world. Looking forward to being in my 60s, still trekking & travelling and of course, sharing the experience. 🙂

A Love Triangle…Travel, Mountaineering and Me.

***On travel


I used to hate the thought of wasting money on such a useless activity. Hearing travel stories are not that appealing. So what if they’ve been to places?! Does that make them a better person compared to me who was able to send my siblings to school?! So what if they were able to do white water rafting? I’m sure I’ve done something that they haven’t experience. Perhaps, even more adrenaline pumping and for FREE.


And more “So whats…”


Then an opportunity came…TRAVEL FOR FREE. I was like…should I go?! I’ve read that going to places are addictive – that’s what spark my interest. If there’s anything I love first before this wanderlust…it is a damn good CHALLENGE. I want to prove them wrong.


To whoever said “Travel is addictive”, you wait and see…I’ll prove you wrong!


Oh…well, you know I failed. Because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be writing stories about the places I’ve been. 😉


***On mountaineering


This came at about 3 years since I fell in love with travel. Unlike me and travel’s story, mountaineering was an acquaintance. We were friends because I hailed from a mountainous place. I just didn’t take the time to focus on it. I was whisked into many things…one of that is glamour. Learn to live with glamour’s glamour. Wore high heels, dresses and make-ups. The mountainous girl was forgotten.


And so when an opportunity came to reunite with the former self, I was scared. Should I go? Can I really do it? What if it’s so tiring? And…ugh…I will look horrible in those attires.


I did GO.


Not because I have answered all my doubts but because I wanna give mountaineering a chance too…like travel. Everything deserves their own chances. And if I didn’t give travel and mountaineering their chances, I wonder if my life would be this WONDERFUL…and of course…WANDERFUL.


So why don’t you give travel and mountaineering a chance too?! Who knows you’ll also fall in love with them like I do. And when you do…give me a ring. 


The more, the merrier…some day, I hope to see you in one of those places I planned to go…and in those mountains I planned to climb. 




Let’s travel and climb together. 🙂
