I was invited to be a part of the first ever Blogapalooza in Manila and I came as Girl Kuripot. I was on the hunt for new opportunities and to be a part of a new, old community. Old because it is actually made up of friends whom I've grown to love and appreciate especially this past year when I finally chose to be a blogger myself. New because there were more people there whom I don't really know yet and it made me present to how much I can still grow both in blogging and in creating relationships. I wanted to say that I'm more than Girl Kuripot and the reviews of the companies that caught my attention in that event rightfully belongs and is most appropriate to Manila Overload.
In the past, I admit that I had favored one blog over the other. Today, my heart belongs to everything I've created in the past year. I invite you to visit all of them, subscribe and start the conversations. It's all me and I do want to be at the source of all of them growing with love. All your comments are opportunities for conversations about what is important to us in life.
- Girl Kuripot, which is a community growing at such an unexpected pace
- Guiltless Getaways, which is where it all started and tells the story of my ordinary experiences made extraordinary and a world without borders
- Manila Overload, which is a personal take and reflections on my everyday experiences and adventures
I'm glad I went to Blogapalooza and I finally got what it takes to fully express myself. It's to love the life I've created as a whole and if blogging is what I chose as an avenue, everything else about my life is leaking out perfectly. =) If you don't hear from me here, I'm probably expressing myself on posts in Guiltless Getaways and Manila Overload.

Have you read about this short post on My Love Affair with Parisian Macaroons? It's Joie de Vivre, French for The Joy of Living. The encounters we have with food that is not our own in Manila is a pleasure that is no longer hard to come by and I often associate them with a place or country even if I haven't been there yet. More often than not, it sets the tone to explore what's out there really and to look forward to that trip one day. For now, let me give you this (while I stare at my Pistachio Macaroons). Because it is through its customers that a restaurant continues to exist, here is a Bizu treat for 6 people to win a 3D2N luxurious vacation package in Batangas plus P10K worth of Bizu GCs!

I've always equated OPM with Original Pinoy Music. I remember singing "duets" with Filipino artists on the radio and on TV, mostly heart-breaking ones whenever nobody was listening. I remember the days when my head was full of Ana Feji, Agot Isidro, Bituin Escalante, Aiza Siguera, Carol Banawa, Roselle Nava, Jaya, Jessa Zaragoza, Ogie Alcasid, Louie Heredia, Jose Marie Chan, Lea Salonga, APO Hiking Society, Freestyle, Side A, South Border and many many more. I knew the songs and I was scared of being ridiculed as "baduy" and "senti" for some of my picks. Today, with the rush of foreign artists, can't-seem-to-follow-the-fast-rapping music and Justin Bieber-like talents, I long for the glory days of OPM in my head no longer afraid of what people might say. Kudos to the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-Aawit (also or probably the original OPM) for being visible in promoting OPM today by means of the internet and social media.

Confessions of a Paranoid Virgin Manila Commuter - Saving Tip # 5 - Protect Your Money Before Someone Takes It Away!
I am a new Manila commuter - fearful of crimes I hear on the news (or from my own friends) and a self-made paranoid when it comes to traveling in my own country. You may probably laugh if I tell you a contradiction - I choose to be a travel blogger. In my blog Guiltless Getaways, I choose to show the beauty of people and their cultures over the threats that people around me encounter every day. I want to be able to enjoy Manila and this entails immersing myself in everything, even commuting if I want to discover and feature the beautiful places in Manila that I find. At the back of my mind, I know that all I can do is hope that nothing bad happens to me and to take extra precautions to ensure it.
