Bookish Christmas Tree ♥

first version, small one.

Trying to be thrifty this Christmas? Don’t want to buy new Christmas decoration or garments but want to have a creative and merry Christmas tree? Here’s my bookish Christmas tree. Thanks to Handimania for the peculiar idea.


Taller version :D I reconstructed it ’cause I felt a lil bit unsatisfied with the previous height xD

Below is the original photo:



            In line with  celebration of the EDSA Revolution and the 75th Cebu City Charter Day, the Cebu City Public Library had launched the I L♥VE TO READ PROJECT the kick-off  worked with the compassionate group of Cebu, The Basadours – a group of Cebuano ambassador volunteers for reading and story telling -, that aimed for literacy development. The event was held at the Cebu City Public Library and started at exactly nine in the morning until noon.  This project had honored by the Cebu City officials that led by Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama( and it was my first time to see Mayor Mike Rama in close up view and my first time to get in the CCP library).

          Furthermore, it was my Literature instructor who informed and invited us to attend this event. And since I love books(knowing that when I was a child, I hated reading and knew no child books at all) or reading printed words, without a second thought, I decided to attend this event. When I got in, a very adorable and charming child welcomed me with a smile and because of that I felt very comfortable even though I was with no one. My friends were not with me. There were many guests like parents, children, Nan, students and a group of children from a barangay in Cebu City(I forgot from where they were) and they were the center of the event.  Moreover, the most gratifying and stimulating part of this project was the story-telling proper. There were three stories that were told. First was Taho, Taho, Taho….Tahooiey by Renato C. Vibiesca and it was told by Cebu City Mayor Michael L. Rama. The Mayor was very patient and adorable when he delivered the story to the children and guests.  Second was  Sandosenang Sapatos by  Luis P. Gatmaitan, M.D and told by Ms. Rachel Chloe Palang. Last and third story was told by the Lato Siblings but sadly, I missed this story because I went to the photo wall.

Sandra gave me a cookie^^ and other guests, too.

The Wall of the Never Ending Story. That’s my Literature instructor:)

           Indeed, I really had fun in this event. I felt like a child again, i mean, I had already felt the feeling of being a child who loves to read books and to listen story telling. ^^

Photo Wall ^___^ (don’t mind my face)

See more pictures here.


It was my first time to attend and watch a cosplay with my best of friend. We went to UP, Lahug, Cebu to witness the fifth Otakufest held in UP-Cebu. Some cosplay-ed Mario & Luigi, Sailor Moon, Doraemon, and other old school anime-s. It’s nice to know that the otaku community has increased. Not only teenagers who cosplay-ed in the event, some were average and oldies. Almost everyone who joined dressed-up extravagantly. I hope next time, I can join cosplay event.^^

Here are some pictures taken during the event. (Sorry for the low quality. I only used my cellphone’s camera.)

I and my bestfriend^^

Last December 26,2011, I with my high school friends went to ABS-CBN at Jagobiao, Mandaue City to claim ourselves as volunteers in repacking the relief goods, clothes and other donations that are sent to the site. First part was sorting and repacking clothes and the second part was repacking relief goods. Actually, we really had fun repacking the necessities. To volunteer in this way(referring to repacking necessities) is the only way we can do as students because we couldn’t donate cash or go to CDO, Iligan City or other affected places to help. Actually, there are numerous donations from generous people. It feels so good when you’ve done something right and helpful.


Bloggers unite for a cause: Bring smiles to people who needs it the most. Because everyone deserves Christmas

   So, last December 18, 2011, Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. with volunteers(including me) went to Missionaries of the Poor to have an outreach program or a little Christmas Party for the special children and elders. Missionaries of the Poor is a home for the aged and special children. Most elders have Alzheimer’s disease while the children are autistic and some have Cerebral Palsy.
Here are some pictures taken during the party.
An elder performed a magic and and various songs to us.
These kids have been closed to me. The one at the left side likes music a lot, that’s why he’s sitting beside the audio. The one whose with me in the photo, was the kid who tailed me since we arrived in the center until the program ends.]
Cebu bloggers and volunteers with the elders and special children :)
      CBSi decided to have a monthly visit in the center. I guess, I will also go there if I’m not busy. Merry Christmas everyone :)
