Well as you all know one of my goal this year was to personally meet various bloggers and February 10 is the day God has given for this to happen.
It was a meet up set by Jay of "About Jay journey" at ATC and since I'm one of the winner on his birthday contest I'm required to be there and among my Filipino blogger circle he is the guy Iam looking forward to see the most. I'm quite nervous about this, since it was my first time meeting them and since I didn't know the place at all, I tried asking people around and checked routes online to assured myself on which way to go. I went to the location 2 hours ahead of time as I always do whenever I was travelling at places unfamiliar to me.
It wasn't just me and Jay we have some other bloggers with us too, and one of this is Bino, a blogger that I have been following for quite some time now and the one who wrote various novels which I've enjoyed reading ever since, at first I was intimidate by him because I see him as a high profiled blogger but then everything turned quite good between us and thru our conversation it feels like I knew him better. I also met Pao senpai on this day, and since I'm quite an art lover, seeing his artworks impresses me and the mere fact that he thought himself all this techniques he used for his crafts he inspired me to do so and that is also why I call him senpai his aura is very light and easy to blend with thou his quite silent most of the time I enjoyed being with him too. And last but definitely not the least was Senyor Iskwater aka Christian, the life of the party, he makes us laughed all the time and he was so honest and through his words I learned a lot and made me realize a some of things. I adore his humor and he's words of wisdom.
The fun thing about this meet up was the fact that I experienced some things I never get to do or things I seldom experienced.Thou it was pretty normal to them for me it's been quite luxurious thanks to the generosity of Jay. We eat and drink a lot at places I never include on my list or in other words this were some stuffs that was unusual to me, I mean I'd rather buy on vendors along the street or to go at cheaper resto than to go on such places haha. We also went bowling which I really enjoyed it was my first time and I did my first strike haha. To be honest I feel odd when someone's treating me but the weird thing is due to the light and happy aura we had I never felt off during this.

We also had this "first impression thingy" which I enjoyed too and from there I learned a lot that made me a bit conscious on what to post or the contents to tackle here in my blog, which is a good thing to me, I was planning to give you some post which is more worth reading and my previous post was actually the first.
Anyway, back to the topic, we just talked laughed and talked until morning. On my way home I went on baclaran church to thank God for giving me a new set of friends. Some people that i'm looking forward to see again.
Jay, gave us a bag of various stuffs each, and here's what I got
( reddish eye due to lack of sleep haha)
I wanted to thank Jay, Bino, Pao and Senyor for everything, for a wonderful day, for inspiring me and for a closer friendship I think we now have.
Finally I reached home at 9:30am which means I have one hour to take a nap, because I promised God i'll attend a healing mass on our church here and since I believe worshiping God is something must never be compromised I manage to do it. The whole mass was solemn and touching you can see a lot of sick people praying for their health we even saw this old lady who resembles a lot with my grandmother who is gone now and it almost made me cry.
After having lunch I slept for four hours and later that night I went up late to finished my blog hopping.
By the way I may not have posts for several weeks, but I was planning to do a lot of articles I have in mind on my drafts .Still expect me to be on your blogs at each and every post okay?haha.
