Celebrate Father’s Day in Simple Ways

June 16 is Father’s Day. But why is this the chosen day to celebrate Father’s day?

As I searched the web, I found out that Sonora Smart Dodd from Spokane, Washington is the “Mother of Father’s Day”, she is the founder of this annual celebration. Their mother died when she was 16 years old so her father, William Jackson Smart, raised her and her siblings.

Father’s day started when Sonora heard a Mother’s Day sermon at Central United Methodist Church in Spokane, at that moment, she was inspired to propose that fathers should receive equal recognition.

So, what do you have for your Dad this Father’s Day? There are a lot of things that you can do for him even if you only have a limited budget.

Here are some ideas:

1.  Prepare dinner for him, serve his favorite food and don’t forget his favorite beer.

2. Let him enjoy his day, don’t interrupt if he’s watching basketball.

3. Wash your own clothes, clean your house, wash your Father’s car, let him rest.

4. If you and your Dad love movies, buy DVDs and watch Man of Steel, Fast & The Furious or;

5. Treat him to a sports bar, order fish and chips and some wings maybe

Remember, everyday is HIS day. Love and serve your Dad everyday. I know you knew your Dad well so I’m sure you’ll think of other ways to make him happy.

Magalawa Tips and How to’s


Thanks Mother Earth for the breathtaking view. 


If you’re staying overnight in a tent, consider the weather and make sure the tent is located under the trees to protect you & your things in case it rains. And oh, make sure you contact Mang Mulo to reserve tent if you don’t want to bring your own. Tent rental is P300 or 100/pax.

If you bring tents, you still need to pay P200 for the reservation of the place of your tent. 


We didn’t try snorkeling 😦 We don’t have snorkeling gears. They charge P150/head for the gears plus balsa.



If you opt to stay in kubo overnight, you’ll pay P1200, i think 4 to 5 pax will fit in.


What to do in the island?

1.Snorkeling (bring your own gears)

2.Swim as long as you want

3.Photoshoot for bloggers and vain people like me 😀

4.Sleep in the small kubo and relax

5. Play volleyball or frisbee

6. Stroll around the island

7. Dive for starfish

8. Interview Mang Mulo or the people living in Magalawa

9. Catch salagubang

10.Bonfire at night, melt some marshmallows & drink (Tip: Bring your own “drinks”, there’s only one sari-sari store on the island and they sell Empe light)



There’s no electricity during the day so we waited for 6pm to charge our mobile phones. You’ll pay P10 per charge.

Also, may i remind you that they only have common bathrooms. Water is coming from the water pump and a “Kuya” will put a hose to fill up water. What i did was, i used the hose as my shower so I don’t have to use the water in the drums. Brilliant idea, right? 🙂

Dressing with confidence is more than wearing the latest fashion trend, it’s about feeling good about what you’re wearing, looking poised and feeling self-assured with yourself.

I do have fancy on plain white shirts. The only challenge for me is to choose shirts that doesn’t shrink and easily wear out. I’m so glad i was able to spot this shirt at Terranova.

Batangas City is just 2 ½ hours away from Manila so most of our company summer events were held at Batangas resorts.

You can enjoy 3 swimming pools. The Infinity Pool.


Pool brings a splash of happiness especially to our team. The Garden pool.

Gazeebo, great for weddings and intimate dinners.

The team enjoying the pool though 🙂



If not because of the calming view of Taal lake, there’s nothing more to return in Club Balai. But there are always 2nd chances, maybe next time, food served will be as delicious as the other hotels. 

Check other blogs, they might experience otherwise 😛 😛



What People Always Think that When You Sleep Together.


People always think that when you sleep together, there’s always something that is happening in between the sheets and the bed. But let me tell you, It’s not always like that. The feeling of actually hugging each other until you fall asleep, the warmth of each other’s breath, and the total happiness in the morning when you wake up right beside them. Everything may sound so good to be true, but sometimes it takes a lot of responsibility and love to be able to be as wholesome as possible. Sleeping with your special someone is one of the most heartwarming experiences you’ll ever have. No nothing, simply hugging and smiling yourself to sleep.
