Before July Ended and August Came, A Summer Escapade and Media Launch in June Happened. Plus Trivia

So July ended without saying goodbye just like what its elder siblings did.  More so, a younger sibling by the name of August showed up on my door without knocking!  Why these months always do this? Ha ha kidding!

Before August can drag me to another spinning roller coaster ride then leave me dizzy the way July did, let me share some fun events that I missed to share last June.

Spontaneous summer escapade

Sometime in June before the summer ends and the rainy days started we stole a day from it and had a spontaneous summer getaway.  A sort “Huling hirit sa tag-init” (last summer escapade) before the kids start school and also an advance celebration of our wedding anniversary.

We headed to one summer destination. I will not disclose the name of the place for now because I am hoping to share a full story sometime along the blogging way. But I’ll share some teaser photos (LOL) of the place.  The kids wanted to swim in a pool and yet wanted to feel the sand as well so we went to a place that has both.

Who wants to make a wild guess where this place is? The clue is the word “spontaneous” - it can’t be too far from Manila (wink*).

TRIVIA:
I'm a June bride.
I love looking and staying at the beach and I could stay there for a whole day just reading or strolling along the shore but I prefer to swim in the swimming pool.

37th Milo Marathon Media Launch
I used to feature a lot of events in this blog but since my schedule has been chaotic lately I temporarily limited my attending of events.  But one event that I can't say no to is anything that involves MILO Marathon.  I'm sure most of you are aware that I have a passion for running.  More so I support MILO’s “Help Give a Shoes” advocacy.

The 37th Milo Marathon Media Launch happened on June 20, 2013 at the Bayview Park Hotel.  I was invited for my running blog BloggerRunner.com (Run! and Keep on Running)

My press kit and media tag/badge. Sorry I need to conceal my real name.

Secretary - Department of Education; Atty. Eugene Yap – Bayview Park Hotel Manager

Joining the ceremonial toast – that’s me with the green wrist watch.
I love documenting “ceremonial toast” of every occasion so I went to the back and took a photo shot for my own souvenir.

TRIVIA:
The National MILO Marathon is an annual marathon event open to amateur and professional runners.  From its humble beginnings in 1974 as a single marathon race in Metro Manila attended by 747 participants, the National MILO Marathon has grown to be the biggest, longest grandest national running event in the country attracting more than hundreds of thousands of runners across the country.

Being techie via the AppsGeyser
I also wanted to thank fellow blogger Gracie for introducing me the AppsGeyser.  I have been reading this “apps blah blah” but I’m not paying too much attention until I read from her post how helpful this thing is for android users.  For a more technical “how to” and “what for” details check out Gracie's post from here.

Look! I now have my own and you may want to download this so you can easily access my blog (wink*).   I am temporarily displaying my blog’s QR Code at the side bar of this blog but the location may change from time to time.  Let me know if you have yours too so I can scan and download it.

  6. Nice place and no idea about sand and pools near Manila. Congratulations for running the race and being an advocate for good causes. I saw my cousins pics on FB about the Milo run as well. I can walk miles and miles but never run. Anyway, may August be as good to us and very excited for "ber" months.

      I've been to several beaches in Subic but so far non pleases me much. I like the water though in the beaches of Batangas especially in Anilao but the sand is not much like this.
