DCPH’s 1st swap meet

January 17, 2016. Fisher Mall, Quezon City.

DCPH’s (Die-cast Car Collectors of the Philippines) 1st swap meet for the year. My first hauling for the year. Didn’t know these group exists until facebook led me to their page. How could I not thank God for knowing this group? And I’ve also known few people who can help me find my die-cast needs. T’was nice meeting these men – sharing our kind of interest.  ‘Til the next DCPH event! : )

Fantastic 2015!

2015 has been a tough year. I cried so many times because of hardships at school, work, and love. But nothing can keep my light from shining! Keeping a good fight of faith! Drowning? No way. I’m keepin’ my head above water.

Here are my top five 2015 highlights: TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY & PRAISES!

5: Meet and Greet & Pit Walk Pass from Globe Slipstream 2.0

I actually won a Meet and Greet & Pit Walk Pass from Globe Slipstream 2.0 event at BGC held last June 2015.

I may not able to pursue my parents’ MD dream for me, but I pursued and did well with my master’s degree.

From academic subjects to thesis proposal to data gathering to research colloquium to final defense to baccalaureate mass to graduation!

Cainta Christmas House

December 1, 2015. Few remaining days before Christmas. Traffic everywhere. But it ain’t gonna stop us from visiting the popular house located at Filinvest Homes East, Cainta, Rizal.

By private vehicle:
1. From Quezon City, take either Aurora or Katipunan and go straight to Marcos Hi-Way. You’ll pass through SM Marikina, Robinson’s East Mall, and Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall.
2. Final landmark: McDonald’s.
3. Turn right to Filinvest Homes East. Inform the guard you’ll visit the popular house: #CaintaChristmasHouse

4. Just drive straight until you see this:

The entire house was decorated with Christmas lights, decors, ornaments, not to mention the huge Santa Clause, snow man, rain deer, and bears.

There’s no entrance fee, you just have to log on their guest list so the owner would know you dropped by their house. It’s free and open to public!

My Aunt run out of adjectives in describing how happy she was!

The first question on my mind was, “May breaker kaya yung kuryente nito? Baka magka-short circuit tapos magliyab. I guess may breaker naman siguro.” But all those questions vanished upon entering, and I assure you: you’ll be in awe of the spectacular lights!

Globe Slipstream 2.0

Globe held the first Slipstream event at BGC last year. It was really fun! I was able to try Pastor Maldonado’s F1 car simulator. Gawd, it was really difficult! I was always in the curb! I can’t bear the square-shaped steering wheel!

This year, Globe held Slipstream 2.0! Compared last year when I tried my luck to see Marlon Stockinger up close (which I was successful), this year I won a Meet and Greet & Pit Walk Pass from Globe! Some people from the event asked me, “Are you a fan of Marlon Stockinger?” To which I answered, “Yes, I came to know him because of my interest in motor sports. Particularly, Formula 1. My first love is actually the Formula 1 Legend, Michael Schumacher!”

I haven’t tried to see a real Formula 1 race, but hey, the sound of the car engine never failed to give me goosebumps! I had a cargasm, really. 

Thanks to Globe, I was able to go near the Pit Garage and gave me another chance to meet the Prince of Speed, Marlon Stockinger! ♥ Which reminds me, when are they gonna upload our pictures?

Fan much? Fun much!

I actually won a Meet and Greet & Pit Walk Pass from Globe Slipstream 2.0 event at BGC held yesterday, June 27, 2015. I was like screaming in the office, late night, when I saw my IG handle from the list of winners!

The mechanics of the contest was to simply post your selfie with Marlon Stockinger with the caption:

” #IWantToMeetMarlon at #GlobeSlipstream on June 27 at BGC dahil iba ang #BilisNgPinoy ”

And so I made a collage out of the 5 selfies I have with the Prince of Speed! There were only 50 winners, and guess what? I got the 50th spot.

  
Haha! I’m so blessed, right? Thank You Lord! 🙂 

 

Fan much? Fun much!
