Seasons of Life Autumn 2011

Autumn or Fall is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons the Crisp sounds of dried leaves as I step on them, the Hue of Leaves from Brown to Fiery Red to Golden Yellow, and the Gentle chill in the air while walking around. This season holds  a lot of memories. opening the closet and starting to wear your sweaters I wish we also have this season in the Philippines.

An Awesome day with Leigh’s Uncle’s Family we cooked for them to thank them for their Hospitality.

Some Thinly Sliced BellPeppers and Zesty Lemon for the En Papillote

Very Home Made Yummy Banana Almond Muffins Perfectly Brown

Dory En Papillotes are all done Fresh off the Even Yummmmmmy.

Being surrounded by Nice people enjoying what we cooked makes all the blood and sweat that we poured in the food all worth it

Leigh’s Grandma is Really Nice really made me miss my Own Grandma Lily I miss her soo Much 😦

After eating a Lot We decided to go out and have some fun to burn it all out

Karen’s Having soo Much Fun Playing in the Leaves.

Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”

09-(24-29)-11 First Week and The City that Never Sleeps

Finally Starting my Adventure. its The First time that i’ll be away from my family for more than a few months and having to live away from your family because your school was a bit of a long way from your house was different coz i won’t be able t see them. as I Arrived in the US I was pretty scared that i might not be able to hold on and even last for a few months starting to feel down Trust me Homesickness + JetLag not good combination.

when i finally met the people that i’m going to live with for the next 12 months seeing familiar faces and some barely knowing each other i know its gonna be hard to live with a bunch of people but i know we’ll be able to make it through.

The First Week there was great still a bit jet lagged so the company gave us time to get used to the new environment.  Spent the whole time between Sleeping and Going to the Park and Spending a lot of time for fun coz i know its not gonna be all fun and games.

Yey, I’m Lucky that my family knows a lot of people luckily Ate Lady’s Boyfriend lives a bit close to where i live he invited to take me and some of my house mates out to the City. you know what that means NEW YORK!! This place is awesome i know i did some research on Times Square before coming here but the photos didn’t give this place justice all the colors the Lights the people the sounds you can’t imagine it by just looking at a picture.

~Rainy Rainy~

Karen and Leigh Enjoying themselves

Looked for some place to eat but its kinda hard to find a place when its pouring outside forcing everyone indoors and its the weekends took much people around. so just settled to go to some places and take some pictures ate at Chinatown a Very Very Late Dinner. and after all the excitement dozed to sleep in the car , when I woke up the car was just stopping in front of the House.

CDO TRIP

Before I started my Internship in the US, My Family Planned on a 3 day Vacation in Cagayan De Oro on a whim for a well deserved Rest and Relaxation After my Graduation and Before I leave for my internship. well I can’t say that three days was enough to satiate my craving for some sunshine but I can’t complain it was really fun and a very great time with my loved ones I couldn’t ask for anything more.

After an two hours plane ride from Manila we finally arrive at our destination

WELCOME TO CAGAYAN DE ORO

“THE CITY OF GOLDEN FRIENDSHIP”

My Big Sister, My Big Brother and My Mom no rest stops on our way to Camiguin Island two hours ferry ride from the Mainland.

After a Nauseating two hours on the Ferry finally arrived at the Island and for the first stop the Hots Spring even before checking in on the Hotel how unplanned can this trip be.

Great View of the Mt. Mambajao in the island.

At the Old Church Ruins 

Stunning Photos in the ruins, the Trees were so Big and Green the Moss covered walls survived years of unpredictable storms. this is what makes this place so beautiful the more calamity hits it the more years that pass by it just makes this place more Grand, loving the wonderful Climate, The Fresh Air, The smell of the Sea Breeze, the Songs of the  Birds and the Abundant Shades of Green all around. truly a spectacular place to be. a perfect rest spot.

ME, My Big Brother and Big Sister Enjoying ourselves Thank you Random Person Passing by for taking our Picture!

Stunning View. 🙂

My Family I’m Going to miss them soo Much.

JUMP SHOT

A Great View of the Katibawasan Falls wanted to take a dip but after dipping my toes in the water and felt the sharp chill backed out.

FInally Arrived at the Resort Nonstop walking the whole day time for some Snooze and Yummy Food. getting ready for DAY2

Early Wake up call Starting our ride to the “White Island” Semi-Clear skies with Calm and Clear Waters Perfect day to go to the beach you need to rent a boat for the whole trip back and forth or else you’ll find a hard time going back to the mainland.

After a 30 min boat ride from the Resort We Arrive at the Sinking Beach the “White Island” its alarge Island in the middle of nowhere  Covered with Fine White sand, no trees or any distinguishing colors just the white sand and with sunny skies and clear blue water From a far it creates an illusion that everyone in the island is standing on water. pretty amazing. though you have to come quite early coz it tends to get really crowded after a while. and true to its name the white island actually sinks, after a few hours the Tide comes in and slowly covers the island with water giving the effect of sinking pushing everyone to either slowly gather in the middle of the island or stay on their rented boats. though it never actually sinks all the way its amazing how an Island able to accommodate a few Hundred of people after a few hours can barely  hold a few dozen.

A Common Delicacy Near on the Beach is the Fresh Sea Urchin Drizzled with Onion, Garlic and Chili Infused Vinegar even though my Mom, used to trying different kinds of food I wasn’t brave enough to try one. the guy selling them opens the shell BARE handedly with the help of a small knife and gives it to you Fresh to eat the meat. and after you’re finished they throw the shells back to the water, they said that it’s still alive and you’ll be able to catch it again ready to open and full of its meat again.

After a Few Hour on the Beach decided to head back to the Resort and take a dip on the Pool spending the remaining few hours in Camiguin, going back to the mainland of Cagayan de Oro for Day 3

After Arriving in the mainland again we spent the night out and about the town admiring the beautiful city then headed back to our hotel we were finally on the last day of our vacation so we ended it with a splash and possibly a lot of dirt and mud. decided to do one of the Most famous tourist attractions the White Water Rafting but due to heavy rains up on the mountain the water was kinda brown but that didn’t stop us instead it actually made the whole ride fun coz the current was much higher and faster. completely scared at first but after a few rapids adrenaline kicked in to over drive and we were having soo much fun that we lost track of time. went back to the hotel to wash up. Going Back to Manila. it might be short but its full of memories and i’ll keep them with me till i come back to the philippines after my internship;

Well Thanks Guys for Reading My Post I hope You enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing about it. look out for my next posts Going to start my days in US 🙂


Internship

Hi Everyone:

I Just Recently Finished my Internship in the US in New Jersey to be exact but its only a short ride to “THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS” New York and it’s too bad that I didn’t start Blogging till after finishing my Stay there but Don’t Worry I’ll be Revisiting my Memory Card and I’ll be posting Some of the Memories that I was able to save in my computer and it may be sad to remember and miss that place but it may also help me remember what I went through for a year and help me towards looking for my Path. and maybe I could also Highlight some of the Great Places that I Visited While I was Staying there to help those who are planning to travel there and find some inspiration.

Times Square
