"M" is where I can call "my own sanctuary" =)
Dennis, our tour guide told me, that Mt. Tapyas is the highest mountain in Coron, at 210 meters ASL.
During our stay in Coron I had the chance to climb it twice, first was to catch the sun set and second the sun rise.
Sun set - I was with a new friend,Jzel. it was so unfortunate that we did not witness the sunset as it was raining. But on top - it was overwhelming as I can see the coron island, a beautiful sculpture of nature.
Sun rise - I was with my Tita,cousin and my sister. we started as early as 5:30 am to make sure we can view the sun rising. It is my pride that my sister wanted to try it out as there’s stairways in going up with handrail. I went up ahead of them as they knew I really wanted to witness the sun rising (“,).
724 steps to reach the top, lucky me this time as I captured this:
but it’s not just that..I am so proud of my sister…I was surprised that when I was about to went down to meet her (as she stopped to go up), she’s 10 steps away..
I was so happy! yes, she did it! yes she can!
I will never ever forget this. (“,)
Thank you Lord, for this wonderful experience.
some are bought, some are free - Thanks God I have generous friends who spoils me , puts me in awesome glee =)

taking a look at it, made me really special, knowing that most of them came from a friend who remember, a friend who say yes, a relative who squeezed on their time just for this, a friend who took time to buy for me.

I’d like to think that surprises come too often specially on December (“,)
As I was negotiating with friends in the US, I received a message from Jolly , my classmate in college - She is starting to collect also and just happy to give me Bahamas Starbucks City Mug - ^_____^ - it drives me crazy! hahahahha! it really surprised me.
I know this giving is too much too soon, but she gave me 3 mugs - (not Bahamas yet. (“,) )
I’ve got this, hold it , take a sip on it- so technically, this is my very first ” I am here mug”. errr, “you are here mug” pala
This one was Jolly’s bombshell for me, though I’ve seen it first on my FB page as she was equally excited as me, she posted it hahahahah! - oh jolly baby - you never knew how much you made me really really happy!

When I’ve got my San Francisco relief mug from Marli, I fell in love with it. And I started to want more of that kind. This year, I am blessed - for I’ve got some, mostly black and white with a scenery or a city icon embossed to it, now, it’s blue and white (“,). Thank you Marlon for asking Joannie for this.

I always don’t get it the first time.
when you are saying something, I got it wrong. You have to say it again and again ( that is when we talk about starbucks mugs - haahha)
It was first asking you for an exchange, but NO! I’ve got it all!!…It was fun and amazing, I am so happy. Now I’ve got two blue relief mugs… HOORAY!

I remember clearly how this mug bugs you…hehehehe!
I really like to apologize for putting you into situation you may not seem to like hahahah!, but this proves that friendship does not mean meeting in person, that friendship can happen in the cyber world. We might not given a chance to be friends way back in Quezon but gee - we are now. hahahah!
I don’t know how and when I will get hold of this, but what’s important to me is knowing that you made your way for me - that EFFORT, i can’t thank you enough…
