Seven Seas Vlog

Seven Seas Waterpark – The Biggest in the Philippines – A Vlog!

I first blogged about the Seven Seas Waterpark last May and I said there that I was going to make a vlog about it so that you’ll get a better understanding on how it really feels like to be there inside their water theme park, riding the various heart-stopping rides and just simply enjoying the scenery. The Seven Seas, located in Bara, Opo, Misamis Oriental, may I reiterate, is the biggest in the Philippines and certified world-class. So, if you are visiting Cagayan de Oro soon, you might want to enjoy summer any time of the year by heading to the Seven Seas Waterpark! Again, it’s the biggest in the country and certified world-class! They even offer night swimming now!

#MyGreenCDO – In Support of CDO Bloggers 2019 Social Media Advocacy

This will be a very short and sweet blog post as I am running a little fever today. I guess all those sleepless nights have caught up with my poor human body and realized that I am not a robot, that I get drained too. I actually should be resting right now. I really did go to bed 4 hours ago after sending an email to my client saying I’m sick because I was already shivering. I was so looking forward to slumber and waking up feeling all better and refreshed because I got a ton of work to do but our 3-year-old kept rolling all over me urging me to play with him. I, of course, reprimanded him, several times, to no avail. I didn’t want to be stressed further and I didn’t want my toddler to get sick too so I got up, sat here in my little office where he usually leaves me in peace when he knows I’m on work mode. I turned my Kenko back massager on and was planning to sleep upright but then I couldn’t sleep. You know that feeling when you’re so very tired, your bones feel like they’re shaking from overfatigue but you could not sleep? It’s such a bummer! So I thought I might as well do something a little productive. I did promise myself that day I ranted about being a sleep-deprived mom that I’ll blog every day no matter how short. This is after all my online diary and more than a blogger, I am a diarist.

So having said that, I just want to share here with you the CDO Bloggers Group’s latest social media advocacy for 2019 — #MyGreenCDO, which I am really happy and excited about! Continue reading

Homeschool

Homeschooling in the Philippines – A General Overview

We attended a homeschooling seminar here in Cagayan de Oro sometime last November 2018 before Tuz turned 3. It was the very first time we attended such an event as we have begun thinking about homeschooling Tuz instead of enrolling him in a traditional school.

I remember way back in 2013, when I was traveling here in Cagayan de Oro with my then “bessy” (Mahal), and we were watching this celebrity show on TV. It was showing Brooke Burk, building her new house at that time, including an area in their basement where she could homeschool her kids. That was the first time the thought of having a kid quickly crossed my mind and I thought “If I am going to have a kid in another life, maybe I will homeschool him/her.” I guess the thought of being with one’s child was just so attractive to me because I grew up with my mom working all the time and other caregivers were left to take care of me. I would have loved it if my mom was there for me 24/7. I don’t blame her though. She had to work because my dad was jobless and was the one left at home to take care of our needs.

Anyway, going back to that CDO Homeschooling event we attended, we learned that there are 3 general styles of homeschooling: Continue reading

Seven Seas

Seven Seas Waterpark of Cagayan de Oro – a Review

Seven Seas Waterpark has always been one of my top dream destinations ever since our transfer (A.K.A. The Big Leap) here in Cagayan de Oro City in September 2017. Our son was still a baby then and we thought it might not yet be the right time for us to enjoy what this world-class waterpark has to offer.

So we waited another year until Tuz was already a little old enough to be able to enjoy kiddie water slides and shallow swimming pools. Then Mahal and I can just take turns in taking care of Tuz and enjoying those scary water slides and rides I’ve been hearing about. That was the plan. So last year, a day after Tuz turned three, we headed to Seven Seas Waterpark. Yey!!! And just a week ago, I was here again with my fellow CDO Bloggers. Double yey!!!

On this blog post, I’ll be sharing with you my review of Seven Seas Waterpark based on my experiences in this world-class tourist destination. Read on…

Seda Centrio Hotel

Seda Centrio Hotel in Cagayan de Oro – Everything You Need to Know (VLOG)

As promised, I made a vlog about my visits at Seda Hotel Centrio here in Cagayan de Oro City. The first time I experienced Seda was last Dec. 31, 2018, to Jan. 1, 2019 when Mahal, Tuz and I availed of their New Year’s Check-in Package. We had so much fun that I promised to come back here as soon as possible. So when the CDO Bloggers Group held their GTKY meeting here last April 30, 2019, I, of course, confirmed my attendance. It was also the day I became an official member of this awesome group of bloggers, truly, CDO’s friendliest!

Here’s my vlog. You can watch it here or head to my Youtube Channel (please subscribe!)

It’s as complete as it can be. All the details you will need if you want to know what Seda has to offer is in this vlog. I labored it with love, just like all my other written and video recorded works so I hope you’ll like what you see.

Remember the Seda Hotel when you visit Cagayan de Oro next!

Enjoy! Continue reading

CDO Bloggers Group Featured In BusinessWeek Mindanao

How timely it is that after I became a member of the CDO Bloggers Group, the GTKY event we did in Seda Centrio when their new Misto food offerings were presented to us for tasting, was featured in BusinessWeek Mindanao (May 15, 2019). If I hadn’t attended the interview for newbie CDO Bloggers, I won’t be in this picture. I’m just so happy to be part of this group and to be included in the photo of the news feature!

Seda Centrio

Seda Centrio Hotel in Cagayan de Oro – Misto Restaurant Food Offerings, Hotel Rooms, Promos, and More!

It wasn’t a long time ago when I brought my family to Seda Centrio Hotel here in Cagayan de Oro City for an overnight stay and to celebrate the New Year. Has it been 4 months already since then? It felt like it was only yesterday. Where did the time go?  Time does quickly pass by when you are oh so busy and having fun!!!

And have I told you that the first few months of this year has been like a roller coaster of a ride for me which was why we jet-setted to Boracay for more than 2 weeks?!

Thank God, April has been a blessing and May looks very promising.

So this blog post will be all about Seda Centrio Hotel, my recent visit there for the CDO Blogger’s GTKY Event (which was sponsored by Seda Centrio), and my family’s overnight stay there last New Year’s (which was not sponsored by Seda Centrio).

Envizion PH

Envizion PH Summer Night

How’s your summer so far? Having a blast? I hope so! As for me, so many things have happened the last couple of weeks from summer parties to eco advocacies (in celebration of the recently culminated Earth Week), to surprise trips, to farm activities, and more!  and I am giving myself an ultimatum of sharing them all with you until this coming week. So watch out for a series of back-to-back blog posts and vlogs!

Speaking of summer parties, I had the pleasure of attending Envizion Philippines, Inc.’s Summer Party last April 13, 2019, held at De Oro Sagatech Resort in Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City and I had so much fun. It allowed me to take a peek at their culture and how this company really makes it a point to make sure that their employees not only work hard but have the best fun as well. Who wouldn’t want to work for a company like this, right?

Connected Women CDO Meetup

Connected Women Global Meetup in Cagayan de Oro

The world just celebrated International Women’s Day last March 8 and the days leading to that… well, ramdam ko lang talaga pagiging babae ko, lol!  The last week has been such a roller coaster of a ride for me that I think I need a break… a long one if possible! Unknowingly, I was about to have my period (mine is irregular so unless I take contraceptive pills which I stopped more than a year ago, I will never really know when my next period will come, hence, my emotions going haywire whenever it’s about to happen) so you can just imagine how every little thing ticked me off and every little thing blowing out of proportion from March 1-8, in my personal life at least. In terms of work, it amazes me how I can still function and do my best in serving my clients. Kudos, really, to women out there! Being a woman, a 41-year-old mother to a 3-year-old toddler at that, who also works full-time and provides for her family, is one tough job to beat! (Yes, I am patting my back and yours as well. It’s our month after all!)

Anyway, now that I have my period, I can relax, sort of, and just focus on what needs to be done and there are a lot. Aside from work and a ton of laundry (lol!), I want to update my blog and share with you an event I attended last February 27 here in Cagayan de Oro City, which, in my own small way, has been how I welcomed the upcoming International Women’s Month at that time. And yes, I watched Captain Marvel recently too. But that’s another story.

This year is truly becoming a year of firsts for me. I normally don’t go to events because of lack of time and energy. But in the pursuit of personal development, I want to start going out of my comfort zone again. Hence, my decision to attend a Connected Women Global Meetup.

Suffice it to say that I learned a lot. And in case you are a social marketer, or a digital nomad, or a digital entrepreneur like me, or are interested in becoming one, then read on. I will list down below the things I learned from this experience where you might learn something new too: Continue reading
