Date A Boy Who Travels

The Answer to Date A Girl Who Travels 🙂

A Travel Blog

Since I solemnly declared yesterday, Lena Day, as the result of an overwhelming week, I urged each of you do some something that you love! I found myself in a Starbucks, inspired and whipped out this little ditty. You may have read, “You Should Date An Illiterate Girl” by Charles Warnke or the response “Date A Girl Who Reads” by Rosemarie Urquico, so I thought I’d bring you something same, same but different. Enjoy!

Date A Boy Who Travels

Date a boy who travels. Date a boy who treasures experience over toys, a hand-woven bracelet over a Rolex. Date the boy who scoffs when he hears the words, “vacation”, “all-inclusive” or “resort”. Date a boy who travels because he’s not blinded by a single goal but enlivened by many.

You might find him in an airport or at a book store browsing the travel guides – although he “only…

The Story So Far: The Kilig Files


A short sweet entry.

After 5 years, someone is chatting with me again. I know this is not supposed to be a big deal, but I couldn’t just help it. I’m feeling that old feeling again. Butterflies in the tummy, big smile on my face.

Even after 5 years.

I am secretly pleased that somebody is still keeping tabs on me.

Its a nice feeling.

Even if its just for a little while.

Here’s a song for you:

Happy Easter!

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

– Psalm 118: 24

Wishing everyone the Happiest Easter!

Date A Girl Who Travels

Inspired by Date A Girl Who Reads by Rosemarie Urquico, Alcah, the Solitary Wanderer,  answers back with her own version called, Date a Girl Who Travels:

Date a girl who travels. Make her feel safe, warm, and secure. Make her believe that no matter where she goes, and however long she’s gone, you’ll always be there for her, the one that she can call home.


Find a girl who travels. Date her, love her, and marry her, and your world will never be the same again.

A House of Love


On the Feast of the Epiphany, the Parkwood Chapel Lectors and Commentators group opened our arms and hearts to the dear kids of the Tahanan ng Pagmamahal (House of Love) to share our blessings.

The shelter is run by Mr. Rey Ortega in a small house in Pasig. Tahanan ng Pagmamahal Children’s Home Inc. is a a duly registered non-stock, non-profit organization under the securities and Exchange Commission,  currently having 5 directors and 10 trustees is now also opening it’s doors for membership.

They currently house 18 children, with 5 house mothers to take care of them. These are abandoned and abused children, some having been picked up from the streets or have been entrusted by their parents.

The kids are all girls ranging from 3-20 and are being sent to school. The foundation is mostly funded by donations.

The house is small but its filled with brightly colored walls and pictures of the kids on the stairwell. Laughter can be heard all around as the kids welcomed us to their homes.

We started the afternoon with some introductions by the kids and ourselves. The kids not only told their names but also included what they wanted to be when they grow up. There were a lot of teachers, lawyers and doctors in the bunch.

We started off with some fun games organized and spearheaded by Tita Alice Belen and her helpers Kookie and Bea.

After which a some snacks of spaghetti and fried chicken were served to the kids, courtesy of Vida.

After the snack, the kids received some lessons on proper dental care courtesy of our resident dentist Tita Alice and resident dentistry student Kookie and received gift packs from them.

The kids showcased their talents to us after the demonstration. Music and laughter filled the small house 🙂

Too soon it was time to go, but not without some presents from us 🙂 We gave them cute huggable pillows with matching mattresses for sleeping.

It was a fun and happy day and bless these little hearts with big dreams.

AN: This is me with the youngest one, Mutya. I just love her! And she has also developed a particular attachment to me as well. She fell asleep towards the end of the program cuddled in my arms 🙂
