See the world though my eyes; Live vicariously through me
Author Archives: Going So Lou
Hi! :) This website is to document my travels, food trips, adventures and other occasions in my life which I find to be worth sharing. I want to give other people an insight and some ideas as to where they might go to release off some steam, unwind and just have an awesome time through my own experiences! :) For collaborations or events you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
“A girl can wait for the right man to come along, but in the meantime that still doesn’t mean she can’t have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones.”
I have come across countless articles on Thought Catalog and Elite Daily about “How to spot your one true love” or “How to know that He’s worth keeping?” With the advent of more opportunities for women. We are now in the millennial age where women are not simply constrained to the household tending to the chores, the kids and the husband but at the same time striking a balance with her kick-ass, high flying corporate job.
Since we wanted to appease the inner wanderlust in us, we decided to book a flight nearby to a place that we haven’t gone to before. So this marks the start of our Cebu- Bohol adventure. We left our home at about 4am in the morning since Mom wanted to avoid the perils and hassle of the long queue and to make us relaxed when we board our flight. We decided to come in to the airport early, even though our flight was not until 7am. Anyway, to make the long story short we eventually had some breakfast first at a nearby joint in the airport while waiting for our flight to be called. The Azkals and the Younghusbands were even there at the airport during that time which caused quite a ruckus in a way.
“You Only Live Once” or Y.O.L.O is one of my most important mantra’s in life. Life is too short to waste worrying about “What ifs?” “What will happen?” or “Will it ever pan out in the end?” I’m not saying, you delve into something headfirst without thinking of the repercussions. What I’m trying to point here is that you should “Follow your heart” and “Live the life you always wanted” with of course noting some calculated risks along the way.
I want to be the one, 20, 30, 40 or 50 years from now looking back at my old posts and photos and smiling at all those remarkable memories I left behind and all the things I tried out of my comfort zone (Just like the saying “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”). I want to do a lot of things, to traverse the world as the years progress, I want to read and peruse as much articles as I can, I want to write and chronicle all my “Awesome” and “Exciting” food trips, laugh trips and road trips along the way. So, here I am now making the most out of life by slowly exposing myself to various places and things that I haven’t tried out before. Expand your horizons. Be happy, because life is too short to be anything but happy.
Since my Mom, monitors all the predominant big key hospitals in the Medical Industry she sometimes passes by my work place to monitor how their company sales are going along and of course to see me and treat me to some snacks or lunch. (What a sweet and thoughtful Mom! Love you!). So moving on, I was going about my work one fine day as usual when Mom called me up and said “I’m here now at the Ground Floor, Are you free?” Good thing I was already out of duty that time so we decided to grab a delectable meal in Mary Grace.
Mary Grace, has carved a name for itself due to its delectable desserts like the black velvet, apple pies,heavenly cheese rolls and melt-in-your mouth ensaymadas. My favorite of all time is their Creamy Carbonara pasta, come pay day me and my friends would usually head out here to treat ourselves to some pasta and sweets. Mom decided to try something new this time around and ordered the Peach Iced Tea (Mind you, this was really good! The specs of sugar can be really tasted in this drink).
Since my Dad promised to grace my party with his presence, I somewhat expected him to have a hearty dinner with me and my sister. However, due to work constraints he wasn’t able to make it in time. But, at least he still kept true to his promise and decided to pass by our place and grab some “Midnight snack” since it was way past my bed time already and during the wee hours of the morning.
He wanted to grab some pizza from Shakey’s, but we already had that for dinner so I suggested a different cuisine instead. We drove around the city and we eventually decided to stop at Eastwood City Walk since we were already quite sleepy. Good thing, we came across this still open joint called “Pasto” alongside “Pancake House” and by the drinking pubs in Eastwood City Walk.
Do you sometimes ask yourself if she is the one? Then there is a 50% chance she may be by just thinking about it. I know from experience that this is not an easy question and some guys tend to confuse love for infatuation, especially in this day and age it is not hard to mix up the two when your carried away by unreasoned passion or love which is infatuation (got the meaning from Wikipedia just in case you’re wondering). Anyways I’m veering of topic, so let’s get back to business.
So how did I know that she is the one you might ask.
Hi baby i know its 4 days after your birthday but I just want to say that I feel like I was the one given a gift when you were born in this world. I thank God for the wonderful blessing that is you. I love you always baby.
Because our mantra is that “Every fleeting moment should be remembered, not forgotten”. We decided to chronicle our daily adventures, new discoveries, food trips and experiences here in this blog. Since, I love to write and we both love trying out new things to widen our horizons and help us grow more. We decided to create this website to share and document our everyday adventures.
So here goes, last Sunday we decided to spend time after mass scouring out new finds and cheap thrills in the bargain finds of Greenhills, he bought some programs which can aid us in our Video editing and producing our Video Clips that we will be soon posting here too.
