Chad and I kickstarted our first summer together by travelling to Vigan and La Union. He took me to La Union late last year, but since we love the place, we had to visit again for some surf and skimboard sesh.
It has become unbearably hot this year so I decided to stay in for a while and went out after the heat died down a bit. La Union is no ordinary beach, it’s the surfing capital of the Philippines so you can imagine how strong the waves are there. So yeah, I didn’t wear this bikini top while aboard a longboard (well I did until it began slipping off—the horror!). I changed into a rash guard, which you will see later in the video (below), to prevent more embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.
But being me, I had to enjoy the scenery first before diving in, and take advantage of the opportunity by wearing a quirky outfit. I am easily entertained at the beach—there’s just so many things to feel and look at: the people, the waters, the decorations, etc. The best thing about La Union is that people do care for the beach. They hold clean ups regularly, so you will seldom see trash lying around, which is a good thing. There’s nothing wrong about promotion and tourism as long we also know our responsibilities both as locals and tourists. The world has provided us with beautiful places, it is our duty as inhabitants to take care of it. Come back soon for more posts and photos! 🙂

I love cats. They are the sweetest creatures from the animal kingdom, and are perhaps the most tamed. I’ve been a cat owner since I was a child as cats aren’t really that hard to maintain. They clean themselves and know where to poop. However, when I had to leave my hometown to pursue a job in Manila, I had to leave my cat Miming behind. He’s old and was frequently gone to god-knows-where. I was saddened by the fact that I won’t be getting late-night surprise visits from Miming anymore. He’s my stress-reliever.
Fast forward to August 2012, my housemate found this poor kitten at the park, soaking wet. Being a cat lover as well, she brought this precious creature home and we adopted it and called it Kitty. Kitty can be very sweet, but most of the time playful and naughty. She likes to play with my hair, keys, cables, and walking feet. Whenever she sees one of those, Kitty gets very excited that her eyes would look so big.
What I love most about her is that she’s very smart. It only took me one day to teach her how to use the makeshift potty Dodon, my other housemate, made for her. She learned really fast; the next day I didn’t have to direct her to the potty. And last week, she learned how to properly cover her poop. Yay! 😀

And she doesn’t even mind me cutting the tips of her nails, err, claws. So cute <3
