Spreading the Charity Virus

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS have weakened me. Althought I got home early yesterday, I was having trouble with my sleep. Yes. I have insomia right but it shows up to my body once in a blue moon only.

It was already 5:00 am and I was half awake. I made a peek from the curtain through my window. The sky was still dark as I saw it. I told myself I had to get going but I tolerated by tired body. I went back to sleep.

An hour after, I woke up. It was already 6:00 am. I was in great amazement! I told myself that I should really get going. I had to be at Starbucks Ayala at 7:00 am to meet my iLearners Family. To beat the time remaining time considering that I was still in Talisay, I hurriedly fixed myself. I was in a jiffy in looking for a taxi ride but there were no taxi vehicles passing the SRP. I had no choice but to commute.

The awful thing about the commuting stuff was that I was not knowledgeable of the jeepneys I need to ride that time. *Tsk3 Bad situation* After a long struggle in talking to some of the passersby and vendors by the streets, I finally got a ride to Ayala that outrageously took more than half an hour from Basilica del Santo NiƱo (BSN). Wwaaa!
When I arrived at Starbucks Ayala, I saw some of my iLearners Family members having their breakfast in the place. It was then that I realized that I forgot to wear my watch XD I hooked up with the tabloids clutched on some of the tables in the coffee shop. I saw new faces that were coming with us. Terrific!

My iLearners Family!

Welcome to the family guys!

Shakii and Kuya Greggy they're endorsing a toothpaste :))

Several minutes later after waiting for some of the members who told the group leaders that they'll come, we wasted no time and spread out. We all went to Carcar in separate vehicles. Kuya Greg, Te Cat and I were in Ryan's car while the others were in Andrew's. Some of the Convergys workers who attended rode a paid service van.

Fun was in the air during the travel time from Starbucks Ayala to Liburon Carcar City. Ryan, Kuya Greg, Te Cat and I chattered about so may things including information about ourselves, the iLearners Foundation, work, traveling, music and a whole lot more. After a one to two hour ride including a wrong turn XD (we almost got lost-lol) we arrived in the destination. We were still the first ones who got in the place of the three vehicles \m/. Te Cat and I directly began the lightning of the kindles for the Champorado cooking. Everyone then helped in putting the woods and unused papers to the burning kindles to create a large fire with the big help of the matches of course :P

Unloading the materials to be used in the activity

The media was there. Someone documented our acts -helping out Bantay Banta 163. Our president got interviewed and some video shots were focused to me and my friends. lol. (Check out ANC the next time you watch tv :P)

Hey Ryan! You're reading the newspaper upside down.

Nice picture! Lhurve it!

Humaygawd! Ano bang niluluto nila? -wala namang laman ang malaking kaldero XD


Ryan and Me!

Meet the Shades of Heart Band \m/

Uber serious si President Andrew oo!

Kuya Greg FTK (For the Kids!)

Te Cat looks like a witch

The whole gang

Cooking mommies!

Convergys on the go! Nasa likod ang mga old iLearners :))

Uber init doon!

White cups were utilized to contain the Champorado paired with rolled chocolate-flavored biscuits. Everyone gave a lending hand in serving the food. The distribution of the deliciously cooked Champorado followed.

Want some?

What came in next was the part were kids loved us the most. *Bwahaha!* It was the games juncture. Yippeee! Celebrate! *laugh* But before we proceeded to that part, we took our lunch together.
Rawr /rawweeer!/ bwahahha!

Sa aso nanaman nya ito ipapakain XD lol

Te Cat: Oy! May cam! compress!- compress! -Hhhhmm!!

I ♥ my iLearners Family!

Done with our lunch meal, we directly focused with the fun games. The little little program was hosted by non other than Kuya Greg and Te Cat! Yippeee! The first game was 'Bring Me'. The game had one of the funniest part of the day because of the shocking material Te Cat first told the kids.

She made the kids look for false teeth which was (lol) obviously exaggerated. Bwahhaha! Almost everyone burst out laughing that time. Also, she made the kids bring to her an underwear having a hole. Bwhahaha! Really funny! I could still remember. 'Hep Hep Hurray!' and 'Paper Dance' were one of the games played too aside from 'Bring Me'. 

Kuya Greg looks like he's in a singing contest while Te Cat is talking to someone who's not listening to her :))

Girl in white dress: Te Cat- you're stepping my foot. Please stand up T_T

iLearners Dancers :))

Mommies participating the game Hep- Hep- Hurray!
The whole event ended with loads of family picture taking. Hurray! -says the cam whores. *ehem*. Bwahhaha! We all brought home awesome experiences! It was one fulfulling day indeed!
Convergys workers with Ryan and the youngest iLearner on Earth. lol

Long Live iLearners Foundation!

We all then went back inside the vehicles we used in transporting to Liburon Carcar to ride ourselves back to the meeting place- Starbucks Ayala. It took us not less that two hours in tripping ourselves because of heavy traffic. We didn't knew that cause at all -not event now :))

The extreme fun took place inside Ryan's car while it passed on the streets of Minglanilla. There was this military truck with handsome men (according to Te Cat, not me :P) bwahaha! Ryan and Kuya Greg kept on teasing both Te Cat and I about something really secret. LOL. It was a very hilarious happening in going home. Uber hilarious! I can't express it into words!

We all spread out when we all gathered back in Ayala. I went home to my Lola Ason's house and rested there for a while. Hours later, I received a text message coming from Jen. She said I have to be at Starbucks SM for a little talk over a coffee because she misses me *aaawwwwwwee* but I was too tired so I told her about the things I did the whole day and I didn't came. We were suppose to watch a concert at Waterfront Hotel at 8:00 at night that time but I was really tired. I went home in Talisay before 7:00 pm.

Shrek the Musical

ONCE UPON A TIME in a far away swamp, there lived an ornery ogre named Shrek whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy tale characters. There are blind mice in his food, a big, bad wolf in his bed, three little homeless pigs and more, all banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad.

Determined to save their home--not to mention his own--Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona to be Farquaad's bride. Accompanying him on his mission is wisecracking Donkey, who will do anything for Shrek... except shut up. Rescuing the Princess from a fire-breathing dragon may prove the least of their problems when the deep, dark secret she has been keeping is revealed.

In partnership with the Rotary Club of Cebu-Fuente, Scene One Performing Arts Group is inviting you to a magical musical adaptation of the animated film by Dreamworks and the Broadway musical by Dreamworks Theatricals.

From the big screen viewing, allow yourself to witness Shrek once more in a live show performance. Brace yourself for a song and dance filled show that will surely make your day!

Be one of those who will witness this amazing show on February 14, 2010 at SM Cebu Cinema One. You may avail tickets for 1:00pm (Matinee), 3:30pm (Matinee) and 6:00pm (Gala) timeslots, all in a uniform price of only P120.00 . Plus, you will be able to help pediatric (children) cancer patients of Kythe Foundation, a non-stock and non-profit organization.

Bloggers' Night

TODAY IS A very exciting day for me because it's the time that I'm scheduled to be with the CBS members (to think that I am not one of them literally) in a gathering tonight. After preparing myself at home in Talisay for school, I headed to SM. I attended my classes from 2:00 pm to 5:40 pm and then roamed around the Northwing with Sinjin and Karen. A few minutes to 6:00 pm, Sinjin and I taxied ourselves to Neo Neo Food Grill located at Mabolo.

What we were there for was a politics-oriented event. We were like attending a seminar about the brief basics and vital facts voters should know about the upcoming May 2010 Elections in the country. The discussion of topics commenced after we took our dinner. The media was there. My friend Sinjin and I were interviewed by an ABS-CBN News reporter. GMA interviewed some of the organizers of the meeting. We were able to know so much about the differences and importance of an automated election. It was a wit-filled night!

Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS)

Scanning process

After all the registered voters in a certain place cast and scan their votes, PCOS automatically prints out a receipt-like paper -a summary of the total number of votes corresponding to the different national and local candidates in seconds.

One of the speakers of the event elaborates to the attendees on how quick the results are counted and how important following instructions are.

Part of the event was the demonstration of how the election entries (votes) are going to be processed & transfered and a testing of  Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS). It was one informative night indeed! The event ended past 8:00 in the evening. We all parted ways after a few picture taking.

Some of them went straight home while the others jammed together at I.T. Park. The last ones who were my companions in waiting for a ride were Noelle and Kristian. I would like to thank Kristian for the company that time! I went home in my Lola's house in San Nicholas via taxi. Check out these cool stuff I brought home from the gathering! All the attendees of the event were given freebies and I for one -even thought I'm not yet an official member the Cebu Bloggers Society, I got too! Wweeeee!

After fixing myself around 9:00 pm, I chattered with my friends and cousins in the place. They told me about a dance audition tomorrow at ABS-CBN. Honestly, I was interested with the auditions when I first knew about it on television but I had second thoughts in pushing through with the plan of making a shot. Because my friends were very eager for me to join, I pursued the affirmative side.

To have a good audition on the next day (the second and final day of scheduled auditions), I had to have a dance music. I preferred hip hop. It was already around 10:00 when the crew looked for music for me. *Wweeee! How helpful!* It was then that I had the feeling that I should really take the auditions well. We find it hard to have the right or perharps perfect song to use until 12:00 dawn. *lol* We really searched that long. We were very eager. The guys were not sleepy anyway and the had nothing to do. They must have thought of wasting their time in a way like helping people out. Bwahhaha!

Believe it or not, I began my dance practice pass 12:00 midnight and ended before 4:00 dawn. I was uber tired considering that I attended an event right before I got myself in Lola's house. I took a nap by 4:00 am and planned to wake up before 7:00 to have another round of practice. *laugh*
