Ibang level ang experience na to! :)
Last May 17, Friday, I tagged along with event bloggers to witness GMA Artist Center stars in a charity work to celebrate Mother's Day. The event was held at Nazareth Home Service of Kaisang Bahay Foundation at Cubao, Quezon City. KBF, is a home for unwed and single mothers. You can learn more about them here.
We arrived at the location and waited for the celebrities. I was so excited I felt nauseous, ang konti tuloy ng nakain kong spaghetti :)
Yes there was food! And a cute cupcake tower! :)
After a while the celebs arrived! First there was Enzo Pineda. Picture picture agad and he had an interview too.
Then arrived the cute Ken Chan :)Then came my new love - Steven Silva. Totoo ang love at first sight, maniwala kayo. Na experience ko yan kay Steven! :) Sayang sya hindi nya na-experience sa akin.
Anyways, okay na, I had a picture with him. Fan moment! :)
Then came Mike Tan. He was so cute too I halos di ko matigil kunan sya ng pictures....he's effortlessly good looking. Parang pag gising nya, gwapo na sya agad. Samantalang ako isang oras mag ayos magmukha lang tao lol!
Last to arrive was Aljur Abrenica :)
Syempre Aljur yan, had to have a pic with him too :)
Doc Manny Calayan was there too! Hi Doc! :)There was a program for the lovely mothers at the Nazarene Home. Hosted by none other than Tess Bomb and DJ Papa Dudut of 97.1 Barangay LS :) The mothers and everyone else had a good laugh at the funny antics of these two :)
The mothers prepared dances, they were so fun to watch :)
See, enjoy si Enzo watching them :)
Si Ken naman, busy mag baby sit :)It was then the GMA Artist Center hunks to entertain the mothers! They all serenaded them with songs while giving them roses :)
At that moment winish kong mother din ako ng bigyan ako ni Steven ng rose! Emerged! :)Anyways, it was really fun seeing the mothers so happy, being entertained by these stars. In reality, they might be experiencing difficulties in life so it's great to see them having a good time. I'm sure this is one day that they soon wont forget.
And it's so great that GMA and their talents take time to reach out and spend time with people, it is for a great cause. In the interview with these stars, they all shared how special their mothers are to them (as I guess it goes for everyone else) and how they felt honored to be given a chance to extend that love to the mothers in the Nazarene Home. Bless them! I'm sure there are more projects like these from GMA and their talents :)
After the program, the stars gave out goodie bags to the mothers. Thanks to the sponsors; Bench, Century Tuna, Calayan Surgicenter, Erase Placenta, OK Quench and Guitar 360.
Now I can say this : Thanks Doc Calayan.............
....for the bar soap! Nabigyan din ako ng goodie bag at may Calayan soap. Kala nyo endorser na ako no :)
After the giving of the goodie bags, more interview portion with the stars.
Habang busy si Steven sa interview with Kumagcow, busy naman ako taking his pics!
Sorry, alam nyo namang weakness ko ang big arms :)
After a while the stars had to leave. I was taking continuous shots of Steven as he was about to leave..
..napansin nya ata ako and so he did this..
..I smiled but in my head, nakahawak na yung isa kong kamay sa aking cheek, isa naka hawak sa brief para di malaglag, naka OMG face at kinikilig na ng very harsh. Epilepsy level na kilig, ganun! Bye Steven, hope we meet again soon! :*
And that was my super unforgettable experience with the GMA Artist Center Stars! Super fun!
I want to thank John of Kumagcow for inviting me! I owe this experience to you. Thank you too for new friends Chard and Rain for being so nice. Hope to meet you again soon! :)
Ngayon, back to home network naman, ang PBO ay may next outrecah program na! June 1, Saturday, 9:00 am at Silid Aralan, Inc (SAI), located at 2/f Montalban Tower Center, Phase 2, E.

Anyways, I want to say SORRY because I haven't been able to visit your blogs - super busy and exhausted recently, pero babawi ako I promise :) And I thank you for still visiting my blog despite me not being able to visit yours. Thank you! :*
Now, share ko lang ang biglaang trip namin sa Tagaytay last, last weekend, with my beautiful yet patay gutom friends, Marseng Joanne and Carl Kalabaw :) Eto ang mga ganap! :)
PICNIC SA...SAAN PA? E DI SA PICNIC GROVE :)
Pag dating ng Tagaytay at pagka check in sa hotel, derecho na kami sa Picnic Grove! Php 50 ang entrance at P150 ang rent sa picnic hut :) You can get to the Picnic Grove via a tricycle from any point, in case wala kayong sasakyan..pwede ding lakarin kung gusto nyo magka third degree burns.
Syempre may fashion blog portion, What I Wore : hat from SM department store; mint green shirt from Bachelors Pad; gray jeans from Bench, slippers from Nike and bag from Shopwise :)
Hanap hanap kami ng hut!
At nahanap namin ang perfect hut, with this lovely view of the Taal Volcano :)
Dahil gusto ko bongga lagi, I prepared a fab picnic! With flowers talaga para achieve!:)
Tada! Tawang tawa sina Marse at Carl sa set up ko haha
Ang aming handa : Chicken Tortilla Casserole Overload - has twice the amount of everything! Sobrang bigat tuloy sa tyan haha :)
We also has Pizza by Marse, a bucket of Chicek Joy courtesy of Carl, Peach Panna Cotta by me and Oreo Cheesecake by Marse. Daming food! Sa dami di pa naubos naming mga patay gutom hehe :)Tamang tawanan, anchahan, pikpakan lang kami sa Picnic Grove. Good fun with my lovely friends, good food and a lovely view - ah it was a perfect picnic! :)
ANONG PAREHO SA MUSHROOM BURGER AT SA FERRIS WHEEL?
Pagka picnic at pagka pahinga ng very mild (with hilik hilik sa side) ay pumunta kami sa Mushroom Burger - to try their famous burgers! Ang layo ng hotel namin sa Mushroom Burger - Php200 ba naman ang bayad sa tricycle! Anyways, Mushroom Burger is at 60 Brgy Kaybagal, Tagaytay-Batangas Highway. Keri gorahan via tricycle, upakan nyo na lang yung driver after sabay takas ng maka iwas sa Php200.
What I Wore : bonnet from Greenhills, hooded long sleeved shirt from Cotton On and shorts from Leixing (hahaha)What I ate! :) I had the Royal Burger which is for Php105 and came with a regular sized drink and regular sized fries. The burger patty is actually a combination of beef and mushrooms - and the burger itself tastes YUMMY! No wonder it is famed :)
Syempre hindi pwedeng yun lang ang kainin ko - I also had an order of Pancit Canton Delight - topped with yummy mushrooms, for Php95. This is as delicious, the mushrooms gave it a twist.
Here is the rest of the menu! You should definitely give it a try pag napadpad kayo sa Tagaytay :)
See, tuwang tuwa ang aking shutay tomi friends :)
After ng lapukan portion, A Walk to Remember kami ng very mild at tada! Nasa Sky Ranch na kami! We are going to ride the tallest Ferris Wheel found here :)
For more info about the Sky Ranch, you can visit their FB page here..and the rates, sa picture below :)
The Tagaytay Eye or Sky Eye is the currently the tallest Ferris Wheel dito sa Philippines! It stands 207 feet - 33 na ako ang katumbas! O talagang kinompute ko di ba hahaha :) Next lang dito ang MOA Eye na 180 feet.
Bongga ng lights ng Tagaytay Eye, lakas maka fresh :)
The ride btw is for Php150, one spin (spin talaga haha) that lasts for about 10 minutes. Syempre di kami natigil, nag look up pa rin kami! :)
Super fun night! Madami pang rides sa Sky Ranch, kung gusto nyong mag amusement park bigla habang nasa Tagaytay, aba alam nyo na! :)
HONEY, AM I IN HAVEN?
Ang aming home for out Tagaytay overnighter ay ang...tada!!!
Mura lang namin nakuha ang room, Php1,500 booked via Agoda. Medyo malayo sa usual Tagaytay spots pero ang ganda naman talaga ng hotel at ng rooms. May bonggang garden pa at pool! Pool na pinag handaan namin pero wala palang tubig! Kalurks! :)
This is our room from the outside. The rooms are made of container vans thought pagpasok mo sa loob, room na room ang dating. Gulo ko mag explain no? Haha :)
Dahil di makapag swimming, nag pikpakan na lang kami. At syempre, What I Wore : hat from SM department store; yellow tank from Coco Cabana and shorts from Taytay Tiangge :)Really lovely hotel, I actually want to go back there someday! :) Anyways, check out time na at kailangan na naming umuwi. But wait! Isang look up pa! :)
Palabas namin ng hotel, na-confirm kong uso na nga ang look up! Tignan nyo tong si Froggy! Hahaha! :)
And that is it! Thanks for coming along our fun and bitin trip to Tagaytay. Pag may time, try nyo din ang look up, nakaka alis sya ng stress! AT kung medyo malaman ka, mapapa tunayan mo pang may leeg ka pa pala! Di ba bongga :) Thanks for reading you all and have a great week ahead.
Much love from me, to all of you! :*
