Tracks

These are some of my favorite songs that I love exhausting the replay button with when I’m in the mood to listen to music.

Enya’s  “Saily Away” 

Just hearing the song makes me want to travel and escape the stress of living in the city gives. It makes me want to teleport to my hometown and have a blast at the beach. 

Then there’s a beautiful sandbar close to my hometown that I want to visit and have my own sandbar escapade with the people I love. Indeed, Sail Away

The sandbar in Manjuyod is so fantastic. I have watched a vlog from Youtube and wow! Just wow!

Enya’s “Only Time”

Another song of Enya that reminds me how old I am! Hahaha The song is just so relaxing that it could even send a baby to dreamland in an instant. It’s a beautiful song.

“Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?”
Only time

Donna Lewis’ “I love You Always Forever”

Imagine taking few steps in slow motion towards the man you love. Relationships aren’t perfect. Fights can’t be avoided. Some relationships dull as time goes whether you always or never argue over petty points. But at the end of the day or two, when one of you possesses a pride higher than Mount Everest, you’d still end up in each others’ arms. Don’t you just love falling over and over again and say I Love You Always Forever? Okay, I’ll stop.That was pukeworthy. Sorry. 

Sixpence None The Richer’s “Kiss Me”

Sixpence None The Richer’s “There She Goes”

Ahem… There She Goes

Sixpence None The Richer and Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”

SNTR’s version and CH’s version

The Weepies’ “Same Changes”

I so loooove the song. It makes me wanna write a mediocre story on Wattpad. Same Changes (I wrote right instead of write and took me weeks to notice. Yeah, but who cares? lol! )

Linkin Park’s “In The End”

Reminds me of my high school days. Lol  In The End

Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie”

Yes, your hips tell people what you eat…Hips Don’t Lie

 

Nickelback’s “Far Away”, “Savin’ me”

Aaaaaw…..Far Away   Savin’ me. I love the vocalist’s voice. Haha!

3 Doors Down’s “Here By Me”

Can you take being away so long from someone? 

Lifehouse’s “You and Me”

Just You and Me….

David Foster’sJust for a Moment (Instrumental)

Firehouse’s “When I look in to your eyes”

Now, this is a song! When I look into your eyes… I just love Firehouse.

Bryan Adam’s Please Forgive me

I don’t know if it’s just me but Bryan Adam’s voice is heart-meltingly incredible (haha! Does this hyphenated compound even exist?!? Nevermind…  Ever heard someone singing as if he is expressing his real emotion? Still watching and still listening in 2016!

Suede’s “Beautiful Ones

 

Bryan Adam’s “Always be right there

……………………….♥ Forever, we will be♥……………………………………….

Hometown 2016

Isla del Fuego, my hometown, contains a beauty that would amaze your eyes and soul beyond your imagination. Siquijodnons are lucky indeed to live in an island that almost have it all. I mean, it has the kind of sceneries and serenity that tourists are craving for. If you’re looking for a next beachcapade you might want to consider visiting the island. Looking for a place to stay is the last thing that you should worry about because the island is dotted with resorts. Some even offer highly affordable accommodation.

A taste of the Island of Fire(Siquijor) The island of lovely white sand beaches and witches!  Don’t you just want to splash and have a blast?!

The witches, I mean, the island will surely capture your heart. Lol

When it comes to tourist spots, the island has a lot to offer. However, there’s limited job options which leave some residents try their luck in the city where they can have unlimited job opportunities. Some even go abroad.

That was why I braved to come out of my comfort zone and look for a job in the land far, far away. Chos! It wasn’t easy. Some companies till these days don’t usually hire novice applicants. So I was one of those unlucky ones who get rejected all the time. Wasn’t used to interviews and would always freak out. Facing the person who conducted the interview was like coming face to face with a hairy caterpillar. I hate hairy caterpillars the most till now! Seeing these creeps sporting hair like a rock star (that’s what my student said when I showed him the picture) makes me want to bolt away as far as I can.

That was exactly how I felt during my interview way back then. Going home from an unsuccessful interview was really a struggle. Hard as it was, I had to deal with it. I was living with my cousin. My allowance was almost gone. I felt like I was a burden to her already. I thought of moving out but where would I go? I was new in the city. I know most of you know how it feels but I got no other choice then. I had nowhere else to go. My, my, I really don’t want to experience it again. It took me months before I finally got my first job. I was sooo thankful!

But my heart always wanna go home to the island. I feel so envious seeing pictures of my cousins at the beach strolling, trolling and enjoying to their hearts’ content.  I was and am thankful to Cyrus because he took me home with him and I was able to spend time with my family.

If I could only have my way, I would go home as often as I can. Being an online EIA makes it impossible. Plus, airfare is just too expensive.

What about you? What are the amazing sceneries that your hometown have?
