My Blastin 2010

The year 2010 is the Year of the Jaysee Blabs.


I got addicted to the Sims 3 and decided to blog about this great home which more or less depicted my dream home, something that faces the sea and something that is contemporary.Sinulog 2010 was something I could never forget since it was my third year to dance at the mardi gras. Our school, AMA Computer College has started to offer ‘sayaw halad’ for the biggest festivity in the country as a sign of gratitude and I didn’t have a choice but I never regretted the experience.I then campaigned so hard for Gibo that this blog became a dedicated magazine with posts like Why Vote for Gibo? And I also decided to create a Youtube video to create a music video of his campaign jingle “Lipad” by Rivermaya. I used Sims 2’s game movies to craft the awesome vid.It is also the year for me to have my design printed for an event and it was for my nephew-son’s birthday. Miggy turned 5 and I designed his tarp and cards. This year also launched my freelance ca…

My trip to Ilo-ilo in a nutshell

Minutes before my departure from Cebu last November 27, 2010 , I coincidentally met my mom in the office, Cristina and we talked a lot and had our picture taken by her boyfriend.

I arrived at Ilo-ilo International Airport around 4PM and headed immediately to SM City Ilo-ilo.   After attending the Visayas Blogging Summit in Cinema 2, we checked in at Days Hotel fronting Gen. Luna Street.

My first Tibiao Fish Spa experience at SM Ilo-ilo!

Image
I think the most neglected and most hardworking part of my body would have to be my feet. So it comes as a delight when Tibiao Fish Spa invited us for an invigorating and unique spa experience on my third and last day in Ilo-ilo last November 29, 2010.


When I entered their shop at the Lower Ground Floor in SM City Ilo-ilo, I was so excited to know what a fish spa feels and looks like. They assisted me with keeping my things as I washed my feet in the designated area. The staff was very attentive and courteous that you’ll feel right at home.
I soon found myself sitting on the indoor pools but became too afraid to even submerge my feet. I looked around and saw them laughing at my cowardly face. It even surprised me that I became hesitant and I involuntarily lifted my feet once these little fishes came to me and tried to nibble on my foot. I was laughing uncontrollably because it tickles a lot and I was acting stupid. Can you imagine me getting afraid while this girl was braver than I was…

Gathering blogging enthusiasts from all over Visayas, the Visayas Blogging Summit (VBS 2010) became the perfect venue to learn more about this whole new industry.


So I had this brouhaha with CebuPacific but then I made a decision to fly all the way to Ilo-ilo to not only attend VBS 2010 but as well as the Philippine Blog Awards and the Ilo-ilo Heritage Tour for a three day two night stay.



Upon arrival at the Ilo-ilo International Airport, I immediately rode a shuttle to SM City Ilo-ilo to attend the summit. I got my summit kit and some other freebies upon registration which was kinda cool. The event staff was very much helpful with the whole process as I pretty much have my hands full. After scanning the theater, I spotted my fellow members from the Cebu Bloggers Society Inc.


The VBS 2010 covered topics from using it as a medium to promote advocacy, to ways of earning through blogging, the VBS 2010 has got to be one of the biggest blogging event I’ve attended to in terms of education…
