This is home


The best thing about where I live is everything is just accessible. The city, the beach, and the mountain view is just a few minutes away. Of course, the white sand beaches are up north but they're also not that far. But if you're really craving for a spur of the moment beach getaway, there's always Mactan Island, a thirty-minute ride from the mainland. And for cool breeze, there's always Busay to go to. It's very beautiful by day and breathtaking at night. The cool air is not like Baguio but but it's the best that we can get especially if you want to escape the scorching heat of the city. Although the traffic situation in the city is slowly mirroring that of Manila, I am still blessed that I could still get to the office in twenty minutes. tehehe

Hey dear! I love the floral skirt as dress! I also do that sometimes :))

BTW, you live in Cebu right? That place always intrigues me. I went there only once and stayed for only a couple of days. But I loved it, and I wish to return one day and do island-hopping! :)
