15 Couple Costumes to Try this Halloween 2016

It’s October once again, and what does that mean? Halloweeeeen! 🙂

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  It’s that one legal day in the calendar where you can wear whatever you want, and no other person can say anything about it.

I have been a big fan of dressing up, and I have joined one cosplay event in Robinsons’ Galleria back in 2008. I wore a Mokona Modoki DIY costume, and my friend sew us up with a pair of cutie ears. She was the white one, and I was the black twin.

Some of my conservative friends frown upon this though, but I don’t care! Life is too short to just wear routinary things! Haha Thank goodness for Halloween! I can go and get crazy with a number of pieces weaved together, and easily get away with it! No judging, whatsoever!

And since I got happily attached this year, what better way to enjoy this fun (sometimes sexy) and show-stopping event, than to go together with your partner! For sure you and your beau are going to turn heads this year!

Be Your Own Health Artist at the Health and Wellness Fair 2016

Being a nurse has allowed me to learn more about the human body, its strengths, weaknesses, potentials, conversions, mutations, capacity and inabilities to regenerate, multiply and heal, etc. I believe that you will always have a choice to take in things that will make you stronger, and avoid other facets that may mark you otherwise. Yes, I am righteous like that. 😀

Not to sound preachy or anything, but I strongly support creating and following a strict and healthy lifestyle, especially for young professionals like me. We are that population that is mostly exposed to whirlwinds of events. You can imagine just how many things you can do, situations you can encounter and people you can meet in a day. Can you imagine all the stress and sleep deprivation you had to endure to pass that report on time? Sometimes, it’s a wonder how can a day only have 24 hours! Yes, I feel you. But given that as a fact, I still highly vouch for healthy living. Because we can only function well and better, when all things are in order. Aside from our WiFi and gadgets, our life and well-being must be in order too.

Be it as it may, I am excited to share with you an upcoming event that will delight us with bazaar exhibits, workshops on arts, fitness and entrepreneurship; and talks by experts on health and wellnes. These are dedicated to help us live and practice the best kind of healthy lifestyle there is!

Smart YOLO-ing in the 2nd Tourism Lifestyle and Business Expo

Last May 9, 2016 I got to do two firsts in my life: first, I voted. (Yes, it’s just my first time, though I’m in my late 20s already. Haha Don’t judge!)

Second, I got to be a resource speaker in the 2nd Tourism Lifestyle and Business Expo!


It was a 3-day event in the Glorietta Activity Centre, where businesses and clients can interact all about innovation, travel and tourism.

I actually had the privilege to choose between May 9 or 10, but I later on decided to pick the holiday, so I won’t have to file a leave at work. :)) Haha


So after voting at my precinct, I proceeded to Glorietta. The travel was a breeze and I was able to arrive just in time. It took me about two days to prepare the presentation and content, so I really don’t have much sleep, but I am not complaining! It’s truly a wonderful opportunity!

I was a bit confused about what to wear, but the organizer, Mr. Jay Agonoy told me to come in smart casual.


So I came in this number: acid-washed pants, white tank top, kimono jacket, high heels and a pair of dangling earrings.

Hmm. I just wanted to achieve that on-the-go-traveler who can pull whatever there is available in the luggage that she was able to bring for unexpected events, more so, I just wanna look carefree and posh slash basic combined. Haha 😉

I came around 4PM, and it appears like I was going to be the third speaker. The first one was Rejj Sibayan.


She talked about travel photography, and what I really like about her talk was how she stressed that taking photos even if you’re not a professional shouldn’t be boring. You can take photos in different angles to further make your images more interesting. You can follow her through the following links.

The second speaker was Kaye Rey. She has been travel blogging for almost 10 years, and she has gone to six continents already! It was admirable how she talked about the surprises she has encountered and the lessons she learned by meeting different people and taking into consideration their perspectives and experiences. I could imagine how many friends she has made all around the world! I hope to do the same in the future! You may visit her blog at:

My heart was literally pounding, when I realized that I am up next. Well, I have been doing training and public speaking for more than 4 years, but there is just something different that makes me feel like it’s my first time to speak in public. I suppose it’s supported by the fact that I am not in the comforts of my 4-walled training room in the office. I am a Real Estate Sales Trainer there. But I am a Travel Blogger and a Resource Speaker here. These two things are different. Haha :)) Anyway, here is a photo of me up on stage.


I also had the liberty to propose a topic, and I talked about SMART YOLO-ING. (*YOLO – You Only Live Once).

Basically it’s about how you can maximize and reveal the optimum potential of your travel. I can say I traveled a lot more this year, compared to any other year in my life. It’s just the 5th month of the year, but the past months already brought me to a southern Catholic festival, an adventure themed park, got suspended in 120 meters above the ground and suddenly dropped, revisited my old school, swam in a cave pool, went to an annual reunion, went to sandbar in Northern Mindanao, trained sales people up north and down south and many others.

Unlike leisure travels, work travels are different. Your day is entirely offered to the demands of work, and this may otherwise be more stressful as it entails you to carry out the tasks where you are, and still worry about the deadlines and other work stuff you left back in the island where you came from. But it is not imperative that you just go back to the hotel after. After a hard day’s work, you also deserve to experience what this new place has to offer! I hope you have done your  research prior to your arrival. Of course, you may never know, you might have the chance to squeeze in some lurlur ! Oops, I hope  my bosses won’t mind when they get to read this! Haha :))


I wasn’t informed that there will be a panel discussion! But oh well, it’s an experience! Haha This is not staged of course, so you just really have to answer the question the host asks of you! No scripts. Unlike beauty pageants that allow you to only answer 1 question, this one was a series! My brain was practically racing in its top speed to dig deep about something sensible and worthwhile to say! Haha :))

Questions were about the most challenging experience we ever encountered in a travel, what to advise for first-time travelers, etc. It was just so heartwarming because I get to have this opportunity to speak what’s on my mind and shed light on how travelling can be such a great way to discover not just the place, but yourself.


By the way, that is the title page of my presentation. It’s me SMART YOLO-ING in Punta Diwata, Carmen, Agusan Del Norte.


I will publish a separate post regarding my topic, so as to share also what I talked about. It can be pretty long I’m telling you, so just hang on! If you know me, either you’re family, a friend, classmate, colleague, trainee, etc. you probably have an idea how talkative I can be, especially when I am enjoying a lovely and lively crowd!

Anyway, thank you for reaching this point and for paying a visit to my humble blog. Hope you enjoyed this bit, and I hope this is only the first of the many speaking engagements I may get invited to! Haha :))
