JAN 23, 2014


Helloder!! just got back from our biglaang pabirthday trip kay Mudra ni Regine. Its a suppah biglaan trip lang, napagusapan lang last last week ang nalalapit n birthday ng mudra tpos ang usapang lafang  somewhere napunta sa malling ... eating... malling ... eating at ang nagwagi sa planong celebrasyon ay napunta sa Ilocos trip in which un rin naman ung matagal ng wish ng kanyang mudra ang makatapak sa Laoag at Vigan. 

I have a week to make an itinerary, book a bus tickets, research for places, book for a tour guide etc..  etc

Kailangan maging possible and perrrfect ang trip na ito para naman PLUS POINTS for me hehehe! "tik tok tik tok - the clock is ticking so berry fast" 

after ilang araw and orases.. voila natapos ko rin ang mga kailangan....

buti nalang am gifted natapos ko lahat before matapos ang deadline ko, dumating ang weekend before our trip at we gave her mom ang aming munting handog, The "itinerary" we made as her gift and super positive nmn ang feedback. She liked it kahit na papel palang un with pictures haha! iba talaga nagagawa ng magic kamays ko. =) PLUS POINTS FOR ME! =)

2 days before our departure we need na gumora sa florida terminal, Sampaloc branch para bumuy ng tickets since Sleeper bus ang gusto namen kailangan ng bumili 2 days before departure dahil baka maubusan kami ng seats. We arrived at the terminal around 8pm super konti nalang ng seats buti nalang may natira pang lower at upper seats na magkakatabi.

After 2 days.... eto na =)
