BDJ Women's Summit 2017: Women Can. Women Will. ♥

Being part of the BDJ Community is such a beautiful blessing. And one of the perks of being a bella, aside from having the best, most useful planner in the world, and enjoying great deals from partner brands, is attending events which aim to inspire and empower us women. 

In my previous blog entry, I mentioned that I was able to tick off the first item on my BDJ travel checklist. Just last Saturday, I was able to tick off two more items: attend a BDJ eventand introduce the BDJ community to someone. ♥
When I got the very first email about the BDJ Women's Summitfor this year, I immediately blocked off March 25

A week before the event, I got an invite to the Old Navy sale which also happened to be on the same date. Because I also wanted to spend time with my boyfriend's colleagues (they were the ones who invited me to the sale), I decided to attend both events.
I arrived at the Samsung Hall in SM Aura just in time for the afternoon session. Thanks to the Grab promo, I only paid…

Kawasan Canyoneering: Can't Help Falling (In Love) ♥

Wise men say, "only fools rush in" But I can't help falling in love with you
A young priest once said, "we can't help falling in love." In the words of Donna Cruz, "kapag tumibok ang puso, wala ka ng magagawa kundi sundin ito."
Exactly a week ago, I had an awesome experience in Cebu. I finally got to tick off the first item on my BDJ's travel checklist. Yay!

As I look at the photos and try to relive the memories of that great adventure, I came to realize that what we did - canyoneering/canyoning - was actually a lot like love. You fall hard and you're dead. LOL. 
Seriously, what I have gone through in canyoneering (and I believe my companions would also agree) can be pretty much likened to the stages of falling in love.
Let me begin.

It all starts with EXCITEMENT. That giddy feeling you get when there's something new! Months before our scheduled trip to Cebu, I was already researching for every detail I can get about canyoneering. I spo…

Blessed and Highly Favored ♥

You know you're blessed and highly favored when you left your umbrella and there's no sun nor rain. :) Yung saktong kulimlim lang ang kalangitan. ♥
You also know you're blessed and highly favored when you're stuck in heavy traffic but you're filled with happy thoughts and memories that you simply don't mind that you're not moving. Mapapaisip ka lang kung anong tingin sayo ng katabi mo sa jeep kasi nangingiti ka mag-isa. Haha. 
And you know you're blessed and highly favored when you've been waiting for a ride for a long time and then you see someone who's walking to where you're also headed. You decide to walk with him and you get to catch up a little. Then you realize, meaningful conversations usually happen along the road. Because life is actually a journey. 
These little wonders simply prove that the best things in life are not always the grandest things. We are all blessed and highly favored. It's just up to us to acknowledge God'…

Perks of Loyalty: Sun Choice Rewards

Lately, I've been benefiting big time from loyalty programs. Indeed, brand loyalty has its perks and more often than not, those perks come in handy just when you need them most. :) 
Today, I needed to call my parents. But since I haven't replenished my load wallet yet, and I no longer have enough load credits, I decided to check out my Sun Rewards points. Lo and behold! I have enough credits to redeem a Php50 load which is already sufficient to register for a Sun promo combo. 
And because their website is not that updated, let me share with you the item codes in case you're interested to redeem. Just text REDEEM <keyword> to 9800
Last year, I was able to redeem a Jollibee meal because I was notified that my points are about to expire. Sayang naman kung hindi magagamit. :)

When "No" is Actually a "Yes" to Something Better ♥

Since Sunday, I've been complaining about my throat. It hurts so much that I couldn't enjoy my favorite activity - eating. Yesterday morning, I've already experienced chills and on-off fever which made me stay in bed until almost lunch time. But because I have a scheduled meeting in the afternoon, I still went to work. When I got home that evening, I was so exhausted. It doesn't help that I was only eating a little because swallowing is just too painful. I decided to just drink Quakers Oat Dairy but even that hurts. :'(
