That Magical Day.


Moon Rising.


Smiling down on me.


It was a magical weekend. I am still quite amazed at how perfect and magical it turned out to be. And it wasn't even about anything material. Well, Villa Trono where we stayed was totally awesome. It was magical in a deep, heartwarming, and soul-enriching way.

I may write the word magical many times in this entry, because really, it was.

You see, I saw a rainbow, a falling star, moonrise, sunrise and sunshine, rain; and experienced swimming with fishes, felt strong cold breeze at midnight ALL in one day.

On our way to Batangas, we saw a rainbow. Sadly, I wasn't able to take a snap because we were on the highway and it wasn't such a good idea to stop there. But we all were so awed.

The sun was up that morning. I told Edeena that it usually rains on my birthday. I was pleasantly surprised that the sun was shining so bright. But it rained for awhile in the afternoon, we all got pretty excited. Chris, Bambi, and I played under the rain, running around the veranda like crazy little kids!

When the rain finally stopped, we went out to sea to dive at the Cathedral. No underwater photos though, because Angela left her camera in Kabul. But that's alright, it certainly won't be the last time we are diving there.

After dinner, my friends and I decided to stay outdoors and talk. In between tears and laughter, I saw a falling star. In between coffee and chocnut, we all saw the moon rising. I just had to take some shots. It was close to midnight when the wind started blowing. The place is kind of humid (near the sea), but Mother Nature provided cold breeze that night.

It was magical and perfect in a way only nature and God could provide.

And I feel very blessed.

. . . . .

I feel more blessed because I am surrounded by people who made me feel so loved. Thank you for the sweet blogs you wrote for me, for the e-cards, for the text/FB/email messages you sent me, for the calls, for waking up at 5am (because of the time difference) to call me and then sleep again after that, for the gifts and the cards, for the friendship...

Thank You.
