Softly Indulged ❤️

I like the notion of having a “childlike tastebud.” A person ages, but the memory of sugar melting inside his mouth does not.

So today, I am grateful for a soft pleasure – to indulge myself with a cone of ice cream from a convenient store.

Maybe life is all about small-sized indulgence. You’re biting, slowly, until you realized you’re full.

One Sunny Afternoon

I was holding a pair of crinkled hands – they were white. These exquisite bougainvilleas were pale in comparison to the beauty that these hands witnessed for almost a decade.

“Why are you holding me all the time?”, she asked.

“‘Cause I don’t want to let you fall, Gran.” I answered.

Summer Fun at Pangasinan XPo Part I☀️🌊

Hello there! It’s official: summer in PH is here! And when the heat is blazing, you know what it means, too: the Province of Pangasinan has to celebrate the annual Pista’y Dayat (Feast of the Sea). Ha-Ha! Pardon me for my translation.

Pangasinan Tourism and Trade Expo is a part of the annual Pista’y Dayat celebration, situated near beachfront, Lingayen, Pangasinan – the capital of the province.

Colorful food carts and landscape entries align the hallways; banners and light bulbs complement the theme; and bougainvilleas in mixed tones complete this set.

If you are looking for a copacetic place to dine in or just stop-by, consider ‘Pangasinan Expo’ as one of your choices. You can find lots of mementos here, I am telling you.

Anyway, I’ll be posting the second set of photos on my next blog. Stay posted! 🌈

Thanks for dropping by!

💌,
SAM

Narciso Loco

As promised, a sequel to my previous blog!

Where greens are life and browns are love, we took turns taking photographs even if we appeared aliens to this place to others. Truly, the sports complex has gotten everything you need from any common sport to a relaxing ambiance.

Get used to my justification for every title that I make. “Narciso Loco” exemplifies the enamor we undergo every time we step into the corners of Lingayen Capitol Compound including this place, and all its other tenements. Admittedly, we are from Pangasinan, however, no time in the world existed without us falling in love to these places over and over, again.

At any rate that you want to experience them yourselves, you are free to go! There is no entrance fee whatsoever. In fact, the more you appeal as an alien, the more welcome you are to the administration. 😀 Other than that, still, a number of memories are coming up! Stay updated and thanks for stopping by!

Bad Run

Some of you might be asking why I titled this, “Bad Run”. Incidentally, the rain poured while we were taking a break from our supposed “afternoon jog” after a warm-up.

The day was perfect to sweat out anything that has been holding me. In the morning we planned to come here, but we were implicated because of errands that must be done, immediately. As usual, my sister, my partner in crime, my side-kick in any journey, was with me. We hit the road at past 3PM to get a glimpse of some sunlight or we’ll be running on a dark alley.

Toe-touch, high knees, consecutive running up and down the stairs for 40 seconds on and off, until we got down from the bleachers to finally get to the real game: jogging! Jogging is a good way to sweat and to be fit. It’s a simple cardio workout, if you’re into it, and it helps you endure hard and/or excessive physical activities. Plus, your heart rate is also trained for normalcy. Just be sure to cool down after the jog and drink water.

So, yeah, of course, journeys are incomplete without photographs! You could get used to me and my sister’s great eye for photography. As of the moment, we’re into macro shots and black and white ones – the latter was mine because she still, yet, has no appreciation for it.

I WAS GUILTY AS CHARGED. For months I have been planning to come here but school activities were eating up most or all of my time for case digest. That’s why I was so thankful for this 3-day semestral break because I was able to do what I want before I delve myself, again, into 3 major exams starting November 5.

There are more photos to come and I decided to divide them into sections as they would visualize more our small journeys in a single afternoon!

Behind A Blogger’s Life

To be honest with you, this is the last night of our 2-year contract from our Internet service provider. Obviously, I have to make the most out of this ample connection before tomorrow comes out and knocks me off my feet. I have been blogging for over 2 years, too, since we had an Internet connection when I stepped up into college.

I am a certified Internet geek! Every now and then, I check sites that help me inoculate questions on my mind. I sleep late at night and wake up early to use up the thing that keeps me alive…and that is, the Cyber World.

The thing is, when I say “the thing that keeps me alive…” I mean the one that keeps me connected throughout the world. Social Media upgrades and so my passion for writing (via blogs) fastens up, too!

I have signed up and written to numerous blogs before and in fact, I still have them now. My friends or even a few of my consistent readers, were amused to know them because I got to spend my little spare time to do such. I am a college student, taking up Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Political Science.

In my first year, I am looking for my way to do my write-ups and publish them online. By that time, every week in school consumes most of my time, though. Exams, quizzes, projects, practicums and among others are binding every step I make to my schooldays. But still, I am not having a hard time. I get along to being a college student while I also accomplish to being a teenage techie gal.

The same year, I started making my first blog, ever. It was our group blog, actually, and I was the administrator. The captions, the photos, the articles were all made by me. I tried sharing my blog posts on social networking sites and fortunately, I won two to three readers/viewers. Elsewhere, I had more than 5 blog accounts online. Some are for micro-blogging so I have to stay awake, again, all night, even though my classes are as early as 7AM. I still remember it when I slept past 12AM until 3AM, just surfing the Internet and my eyes were burning already. Headaches come and go.

Second year. This is when I became more active to micro-blogging, leaving past my first blog account. I am steering slowly to open my laptop and publish what is happening. I have to say that this is the busiest and time-consuming school year in my college life (and I know that more is about to come). Let me count weekends. I couldn’t even finish up all of the requirements for only two days, with all that urgent deadlines.

However, it came to a point where I missed sharing my life with others. All my thoughts were coming into view and I did not want to let go of them as time passes by. What I meant was, I wanted memories to last a lifetime! It was only a few months ago that I made this blog account on WordPress and I seemed to be enticed to write, again, like a writer with a new pen. The difference between this blog from my first owned one is that, this is personal. I don’t have to worry posting outnumbered articles or photos of mine, not bothered by group things; I write what I like and I post who I am.

Now, I am an incoming Third Year student, already, and I believe that this is a whole different thing from the past years. Why? Because I ought to contend with my major subjects, for the first time! If last school year was already a catching fire to me, not to mention, those were “only” minor subjects, how much more about these major ones? I am not going to kill myself, eh?

A promise is a promise. A devotion is a devotion. Passion is passion.

Still, despite these circumstances to my busy life, I do blog. And I am going to continue doing it until the world stops from spinning (No, please don’t. Ha-Ha). The key is TIME MANAGEMENT. No matter how busy you may seem, find ways to do ten things at one time, if possible. Practically speaking, do not indulge yourself to do only one thing when you can do two.

In my case, they keep on questioning me how in the world I wrote all of these when I am supposed to pass a research paper. The irony of me, I am even feeling relieved when I finish a long blog, than having been tied up to my already finished paperwork. I spend the whole time sitting and waiting for my thoughts to usher continuously so I can type it, all the while, without minding my quizzes for the following day…the thoughts that would, someday, change the world!

Tomorrow, the inter-connective waves from the worldwide web will be gone in an instant. This is also the reason why I wrote this post. I am not saying that I am going to stop blogging because our Internet connection will be gone. No, that will not stay for too long. We have already called a new Internet service provider and if God permits that the surveyors would approve our location (they need to check whether our house is close to the other subscribers for the cable wire), I will be bounded to write for you, dear readers, again. Cross-fingers for that!

I will not stop from blogging. Blogging makes me whole. This is the truth behind my life, as a blogger. I am a blogger by heart…a certified Internet geek!

It’s almost 12AM. For this, I am happy. Goodnight to me, good day to you!
