Carmel David 2017Hello!  My name is Carmel and welcome to my online home!

I was born and bred in Manila, the capital of the beautiful Philippine archipelago.  By profession, I’m a marketer.  I am also a daughter, a sister, a blogger, and a friend.

I love to travel.  I travel to learn more about life and to awe myself with the beauty of this world and the uniqueness of people.

I love art, especially those that come in the form of books, theater, television and Broadway music.  I am amazed by how they are able to beautifully capture life, specifically its realities and the emotions that come with them.

I like drinking wine.  And Yogi tea.

I used to hate any form of physical activity until I discovered yoga.  I can go on and on about how it has changed my life!

I take delight in conversations that range from silly to deep and meaningful.  People say I have strong beliefs.  And yes, I feel very strongly about certain things like female empowerment and other societal issues.

I’m quite independent and love doing things on my own, BUT I cannot live without God and my family.

I’ve made tons of mistakes in my life.  I’ve stumbled, fallen, and got my heart broken several times and a lot of them were because of my own doing.  My close friends keep on telling me that the things I’ve been through were unfathomable, and that I’m so blessed I was able to surpass them all.  And I’d like to believe that.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned from these experiences, it’s that there is always a second, a third, and a fourth chance to get back up. These experiences have also taught me that one has to be empowered enough to course through the hardships of life, and that real empowerment can only stem from self-love, and self-love can only result from fully receiving God’s love.  And this is exactly why I blog — to hopefully show my readers that there is a always purpose for our pain, and a rainbow after the hehehe. :)

I’m in the process of rebranding my blog as I’ll be taking it to a new direction.  In the meantime, enjoy navigating through the old entries (though I’ll start writing new ones from time to time).

May something awesome happen to you today. :)

    Was your picture taken in Vietnam? I think I have a similar photo with that gate. Haha.
    I stumbled upon your blog site and became inspired to be more organized in writing about my “explorations”. If you’d browse through my blog site, it basically contains….messy random thoughts. Every post, usually, is being created during my waiting hours or emotional peaks. So seeing your blog site inspired me to focus on my passion…well, focus on something. Keep on writing and I will definitely follow your blog. :)

    Taal is indeed a beautiful town and the oldest municipality in the first district of Batangas but until now this locality remain a Class C municipality. My personal thank to Mr. Ernie Villavicencio and other surviving heirs of Agoncillo-Villavicencio clans who opened the door of this stagnant town for business and investment thru the idea of converting Agoncillo farm lot into a prime Hacienda Villas subdivision located in the area of Brgys. Tiera Alta, Niogan, and Pooc respectively. Another subdivision development project called Del Pueblo in Brgy. Buli which is also part of Mr. Ernie Villavicencio’s bright idea to provide job opportunities for the local folks. As Taalenos, we are all looking forward for a more progressive and developed Taal. Hoping that in the near future known investor show its interest to develop a new state of the art tourist destination area in Taal with attractive amusement facilities for family weekend out of town activities and a competitive hotel structures that can accommodate local and foreign tourist who are willing to stay over night because they wanted to experience the life of the local residents here on nocturnal time. If this ambitious dreams turns into reality, our beloved town Taal will metamorphose into Class A municipality. More tourist will influx, more revenue will pour on the local government coffer and more local people can receive basic services. Thank you for the efforts in promoting our beloved town
