Three Big Reasons for Me to Smile This Weekend

1. A Friend’s Birthday!


Today is my travel buddy’s birthday. She holds the distinction of bidding me goodnight through text, without fail, in the past 10 years or so. I’m putting emphasis on “without fail” as in every night talaga πŸ™‚ Am I not blessed to have a friend like her?

Happy birthday, Tita H! I bet you didn’t know I took this photo of you hahaha! I’ll remain your Neneng forever πŸ˜‰

2. Guyito Travels…and Blogs, Too!


Oh, yes, Guyito is now a blogger. I discovered he is also an itchy feet. He always has this question in mind: “Where to next?” πŸ™‚ Please visit him here and don’t forget to say hi.

3. We Will Be Making Children Smile Again!

Come Monday, Pens of Hope will be visiting a school in the town of Laoang in Northern Samar and distributing pencils, pens, storybooks, and other school supplies.

The school supplies came from a big, tall box sent straight from Dubai by blogger Muymuy.

The box contained 6,200 pencils, 5 boxes crayons, 40 plastic envelopes, 313 erasers, 30 pastes, 595 ball pens.

Muymuy has been very supportive since Pens of Hope started. She is one of the early visitors of this blog and my heart swells when I think that she has stayed on for almost 4 years now as a blog friend. On her birthday last year, instead of receiving fancy gifts from friends she asked for pens and pencils. Maraming, maraming salamat, Muymuy!

The storybooks came from a blogger who wishes not to be mentioned. This blogger indeed has a big heart being a supporter of other bloggers’ charitable efforts. Sa iyo, maraming, maraming salamat!

This is going to be a super great long weekend for me as I am off from work on Monday πŸ˜‰ Yay! So excited!

Happy weekend sa iyo, sa iyo, sa iyo, at higit sa lahat, sa iyo πŸ™‚ God bless!
