Why you should never miss the next Oktoberfest #Divercity event

Let’s break the stereotype that parties like this are JUST for fun and up to no good. Yes young, wild, and free, but it’s a responsible YOLO though.

Glad that I finally had the chance to attend to one of the most anticipated annual events in the country, San Miguel Oktoberfest.

Ever since high school, I look forward to going to events like this as part of my bucket list. I went there with my good friends who I can always count on. ❤

Work hard, Play hard.

I wonder how we really measure hard work. When to know that enough is enough or that a little should be given more or given up?

I am a paradox for being such a lazy doer. A doer, but lazy. Hahaha. I feel more worthy when I get to do a lot of work, but at the same time, feels relieve lurking on the internet while lying on my bed for a whole day.

A workaholic, but a sleep addict.

Caught in-between

Yes or no? Hot or cold? True of False? We all have the teeny-weeny challenges in decision making.

Conscious or not, we constantly make our own choices everyday. Even this paragraph has started by letting you choose based on your self assessment.

We girls have moods we can’t explain and even understand. Here, I felt like I don’t want to dress up, but I don’t also want to dress down. Bottom line: I was caught in-between laid-back and dapper look. I chose to wear my comfy plaid button-down shirt along with my high-waisted denim shorts and ballet flats.

3 lessons I discovered when I climbed the 3rd highest mountain in the Philippines

When life gets a bit tough, unwind.

Life sometimes becomes a bumpy road. When things get rough and tough, aside from letting God take over on the situation, we have to help ourselves to remain in good composure and sane. In connection, I felt like I need a sweet escape from it all for a while. I’m glad we have our weekend Benguet trip for our hike to Mt. Pulag, the highest mountain in Luzon and 3rd in the Philippines.

As for the accurate and latest record, Mt. Pulag is now 2926 masl.

During the very long hours of walking and trekking, I inconspicuously reflect on the current life I have, the people I deal with, and the decisions I make. My renewed relationship with the mountains made me realize 3 main takeaways about life:

Dear future 30-year-old self,

This is me, the 2-decade-old you, still very young, hopefully visualizing and talking to you, ten years back from where, what, and who you are now.

Hi,

I wonder how you are being called by now. By your initials? second name? position? nickname? Well, whatever they use to call you, I wish you’re comfortable with it.

My aspirations for you are high, yet achievable and realistic. I hope you’re in a genuine state of bliss by now.

I aspire you to be independent and successful, but always humble. Brave but still soft-hearted. Forgiving but not vulnerable. Happy and contented.

I’m optimistic that you’re financially independent this time. Tell me ,what have you done and gave to your loving parents? How did you fulfill their dream retirement? I’m still living in one roof with them this time as I’m writing this to you. They provide me everything that is beyond what I need. I wish you’re able to pay them back for all these things they’ve done and sacrificed for you since day one.

I hope you attained your desired profession and absolutely happy with it. I wish you’ve given your very best for all that you have now. I hope your life principles are still intact and standing still.

From the numerous circle of friends that you have before, how many have stayed? Who remained true to their words that they’ll be there for you no matter what? From the people I have today while writing you this, I’m pretty confident that some of them will still be there for you. I do hope I have found real and lifetime friends as early as now.

15 countries off your bucket list? I know you have also explored and experienced well your own country by now. Continue to seek for new travels and adventures, there’s truly more to life!

I don’t know if you’re at the age I want to get married, but if you haven’t walked down the aisle yet, wishing you’re already in a great, sparkling,and stable relationship. I know now’s for real and everlasting.

Be inspiring. On the other hand, let all the people who inspire you, know that they do. 

Everything I desire and yearn while writing this will probably have their own little changes the moment it reaches you, as I am learning everyday, every year. However, one thing’s for certain, you now have a clearer and broader perspective in life so make sure you’re filled with God’s love and pure happiness. 

All thanks be to God. ❤ 

Much love and trust,

The 20-year-old Yel
