is there another chance to make things right?


Photo 7-2-16, 10 31 14 AMhave i done the right thing?

have i said the wrong things or
did i keep to myself the things i should have said?

have i stood up and fought for the important things or
did i just let things that really matter pass me by?

do i keep the memories that are worth remembering or
have i easily forgotten them all?

did i choose to hold on to something that i shouldn’t have and
let go of the things that i should have kept forever?

have i cared too much or
have i cared too little?

am i correct to avoid the things that will hurt me or
is it foolishness not to fight and get hurt?

will confusion disturb me for a long time or
will confusion make me balance things out?

was i ever a careful thinker or
was i always been an impulsive emotional?

is it too soon to stop or
is it too late to turn back?

should i move on and just learn from my mistakes or
should i try to go back and make things right?

will there ever be another time, another moment or another chance?
or is there only one chance and i can only be grateful or regretful?

Geiger Lookout Wayside Park

P.S. Excuse me for the nonchalant face.. It was a stolen shot and I am afraid of heights.. Haha..

From Lake Tahoe, we decided to go to Virginia City and then go to Reno, Nevada..
Through our journey of zigzag roads, we decided to stop by this wonderful place called Geiger Lookout Wayside Park..
It is a great place to pause and take a moment to appreciate the overlooking view of Nevada.

So happy we went there at a perfect timing– when the skies are ready to display their beautiful colors.. ❤

Just a warning, you need to climb a (not so) steep stairway and it is a bit scary for a person like me who has fear of heights..
Plus it was covered with snow so imagine how I felt! Haha..

However, the view afterwards is magnificent!

So if ever you’ll pass by Geiger Road, don’t miss this wonderful place..

For people with fear of heights, to be honest it was only a few steps to reach the top so please don’t be afraid to visit this place.. 🙂

View at the back..

The Geiger Grade [is] a twisting mountain road built in 1862 to haul silver from the Comstock Lode. The road gets its name from Davison M. Geiger, a local physician who financed its construction. Daredevils with four-wheel-drive vehicles still take the old grade. But most drivers should stick to the newer Geiger Grade (built in 1936), Highway 341. Cutting through the same scenic area, it begins in the valley south of Reno off Highway 395 and winds its way through a rocky landscape dotted with junipers. At the 4.6-mile point there’s a turnout with spectacular views of the Sierra and a plaque paying tribute to Dr. Geiger. Down toward the valley, you’ll see the old, snaking, unpaved route. The new road curls over the mountains and south into historic Virginia City. It was once a rough town, but these days it’s a pretty nice place to stay.– AAA Via MagazinePhoto 10-2-16, 2 31 12 PM

Super Bowl 50 Experience!


As you may already know, I am from the Philippines + I am not into sports..
Our nation is more on a Basketball nation and honestly, I have never watched a football match in my entire life.
So actually, I never thought I will be interested in Super Bowl..

At first, I was just interested to go to the Super Bowl City.
Super Bowl 50 is a milestone here in US and I want to witness what happens.
So we decided to go to San Francisco and check out the Super Bowl City..

There were a lot of people.
Everyone was so excited to take photos and participate in the activities the area has to offer.
And yes, we queued for the big 50 sign photo op (but I will not post the pic coz I’m too fat-haha).

There were a few activities like playing some games and other photo ops but we didn’t have enough time to participate.
We wanted to buy souvenirs but then the shop was really packed so we just ate our lunch, took some more photos and went to the Painted Ladies (sorry if we didn’t stay that long in SBCity)..

But I still have a story to share:
While I was waiting for my turn (photo op), I was watching the presentation shown in the big screen.
Football clips, live feed, etc.
And then it captured me- I was really excited watching the players fight for that ball and getting that valuable touchdown!
I then said to myself, “I must watch the game on Sunday!”

Sunday came! The Big Match!
To feel the atmosphere, we bought some SB50 goodies and chips to snack on while watching..

Since I really do not know both teams, I chose Denver Broncos as my team just because I like color Orange..
I know that is too shallow but at least, my team won! 🙂
And then game started!

I didn’t understand the technicalities of the game and I didn’t expect that there will be a lot of stops here and there..
BUT! I enjoyed the game and I was excited every time there is a touchdown or when a player outruns other players..
I think it is good for starters, right?

SB50 Halftime Show. Coldplay, Beyonce & Bruno Mars. Excellent.
Plus the Believe in Love sign.

Overall, my Super Bowl 50 experience was fun and exciting!
Looking forward to more years of Super Bowl even if I am back in the Philippines-
all thanks to Internet & live streaming.. ❤
