Review of “The Delight of Being Ordinary”

Author:Roland Merullo
Rate: 3.6/5

  1. I love the idea of a trip of 2 of the most powerful religious leader on earth, the Pope and the Dalai Lama. The idea that Jesus and Buddha on their time are with their people preaching and not on the comforts of huge cathedrals or temples.
  2. I agree with most of the times when the Pope and Dalai Lama concur on things and it actually shows that all religion is the same teaching about goodness and kindness.
  3. The character of Rosa is the spice of the story. She depicts most of the persons I know and I even sometimes see myself of her. Questioning about religious ways but believing God.
  4. Paolo, on the other hand, is your common practicing Catholic. A faithful who believes in everything the church is teaching and calling a sin everything he thinks is against the teachings of the church or against his belief.
  5. I think that the story could have focused more on the pope and the Dalai Lama. Perhaps, more conversation between them. The author could have research more about issues and topics that the Pope and the Dalai Lama commented on, then work it on the story. I wish they could have met more people along the way.
  6. Read a little of Italy’s history and Mussolini before reading this book.
  7. A good plot twist at the end.

Recommending this book to those people who wanted to be enlighted about religion and for those who love travel related stories.

Sustainable Dining through Cebu Food Crawl 2018

I wanted to start this post by saying that I am no foodie, but I think some of you will doubt because I usually post food on my social media. But what I am really trying to say of “not a foodie” is that I rarely go to a new restaurant to eat. I only had a handful of restaurant that I frequently visit, most of them I have been to more than 5 times.

So, why is a person like me decided to join Cebu Food Crawl?
1. I believe that Cebu has a lot to offer in terms of food.
2. I love trying new things and food will be a good addition.
3. Family, friends, and colleagues often asked me for recommendations on where is the best place to eat in Cebu and what are the must eat in Cebu? So now I can firsthand help them instead of plainly relying on reviews.

Cebu Food Crawl is on its 4th year now and it started today. Yup!

Know yourself and know what you’re good at

A few weeks ago I had the privileged to be interviewed by The Big Picture Philippines Podcast to share my experience of working from home.

I have been working from home since 2010 as a freelance and in June 2011 I am affiliated with a company, so basically about a little more than 8 years now. I had my fair share of ups and downs in the industry but thankfully I am still here, grinding and learning at the same time.

Instead of retelling what I shared on the podcast you can just watch it on the video below or visit The Big Picture Philippines website.

What I wanted to talk about is a portion of the advice I gave during the podcast. I was asked what advice I can give to those who wanted to work from home.

“Know yourself. Know what you’re good at.”

Even before the internet era, there are already jobs from home like sewing, selling (sari-sari store), electronic repairs, and etc. but the internet gives a different freedom of work from home. Now we have the choice to work office type of jobs from home.

There are so many types of works you can find online and sometimes it gets overwhelming that you tend to jump from one niche to the other, and it is totally okay especially if you are just starting out. But when you are at it for 3 or more years already and not yet settled in, then it is a different story.

The online industry is fast-paced and its niche is evolving in just a blink of an eye. The perfect strategy today may not work tomorrow and the tools highly used at the moment will get outdated and replaced.

Know Yourself
Knowing yourself will give you the opportunity to recognize what you really want in life, therefore, you will have a clear idea on what path to take hence it would be easy for you to decide on what job to get.

Know what you’re good at
The highest benefit you can get from knowing yourself is to be able to distinguish the things you are good at. Now you have the upper hand over your job. There is still effort as everything has, but it is lesser.

Work from home or not, if you know yourself and know what you’re good at then success is an arm’s reach.

My Danasan Eco Adventure Park Journey

I have been longing to write about Danasan Eco Adventure Park, like circa 2012 but each time I told myself well next time if I tried this adventure and the next time, the same thing and it took me 5 visits to at last write something about this great place in the highlands of Danao City.

Danasan Eco Adventure Park Review

The year 2012 – The Unplanned Visit

1st visit with Team Buktot. This is actually an unplanned trip. Babe arrived home with his close high school friends.

I forgot all the details but I remember tatay telling us that we can ride with the owner’s service ma’am Inday and sir Mike going to Danasan Eco Adventure Park. So we hitched with them – the owners. The guys at the back of the pick-up car and me inside.

This time the park just opened, thinking of its current activities over the 2012 visit the park looks bare.

We are lucky that ma’am Inday tours us around and gave us details on their plans of the 133-hectare estate.

We tried the zip-line, wakeboarding, and horseback riding.

The Year 2013 – Advocates Unwind

2nd visit with my Bagumbayan family.

A planned trip that started with an alcohol-filled night at home (yep been there too) we rode a 1-hour habal-habal from Danao proper to Danasan Eco Adventure Park.

We arrived late so we only did wakeboarding and caving.

The Year 2014 – Taptweens Getaway

3rd visit with my Taptweenz cousin.

Have to tour around the cousins from the country down under. The cousins stayed at home for the night, we play cards as we always did since we were young and exchange shots on the side.

We enjoyed the ATVa lot and during this time that I fell in love with the ATV ride.

We did not miss the fun of the wakeboarding. A couple of splak then a few minutes later everyone is competing for wakeboarding.

Some of my cousins went horseback riding then after the tiring wakeboarding we enjoyed our self at the swimming pool.

The Year 2015 – Farewell Adventure

4th visit with my fellow adventurer baby cousin Maitha and babe of course who is always behind the scene taking photos.

Babe and I did not know that this is our farewell trip with our baby since she is pursuing her career in the land of Kiwis.

We Trek to the waterfalls did the rappel and of course, the Tyrolean in which at first I am having a second thought if I will do it, and courage prevail so I did.

We also ride the skydrop which is the newest adventure of that time. I and Maitha doing the tandem and babe doing it alone because he is brave like that and height adventure is his favorite.

The Year 2018 – BFF Laagans

5th visit with my BFF Laagans Mr. M – Cebu’s Lifestyle Blogger of facecebu.net and ate Chubs, the ultimate ate of all.

They both told me that this is our official annual trip for the year, but it is what they told me during our Western Cebu Backpacking Trip last April 2018 in which by the way I will be blogging next.

Aside from the fun and craziness this 2 brings, it also means that I will have lots of instagrammable photos.
