I’ve been meaning to post a story of my experience in a far, far away land where the mother and child in the photo lives but since I’m lazy and Happy Mother’s Day posts are all over facebook, here’s a quickie post instead.
So to all the mothers, feeling mothers, acting mothers, and even dads being mothers, happy mother’s day to you. I salute you all. To my mom, I know I’m not sweet and expressive but I love you with all of my heart.
They won’t be able to see this but I just want to give these two awesome people a shout out.
Thank you for accommodating me during my visit (and for the breakfast!). You girls are both wonderful. I miss you and wish to spend time with you again!
This post was published way before The Daily Post posted the Daily Prompt – The Kindness of Strangers but since DP asked when was the last time a stranger did something particularly kind and generous to me, here it is. 🙂
This 84-tiered falls of cascading energy is 1,110 feet (340m) in total, and found in the midst of a virgin forest with a 13 rapid-river to cross at the foot of the falls.
It’s the highest waterfall in the Philippines and considered one of the most beautiful falls in Mindanao.

**Typhoon Bopha was the strongest tropical cyclone to ever hit the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, making landfall as a Category 5 super typhoon with winds of 175 mph.
Hitting two birds with one stone: two things I love doing the most. I got to travel…and volunteer!
This picture was taken during a volunteer trip (#Project Jomalig: Feed the Kids, Change the World c/o JourneyingJames) that I did with a few travelers in Jomalig Island. To get to this place, we rode a 3-hours van ride + 6-7 hours of boat ride in *drumroll* Pacific Ocean.
You see, Jomalig is so far and hard to reach that only a few knows this place exists…. so far that Jomalig is considered “the most nutritionally depressed municipality in the country”.
It’s always nice to see people smiling despite all the hardships life throws in. It’s inspiring.
