Littlenars tried the Manila Bay Dinner Cruise

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

On a personal note, I would like to tell you my readers that my relationship with Nigel (my boyfriend) is not that “romantic” kind of thing, girls would fantasize about… We are like best friends and lovers at the same time. I could enumerate circumstances but I’d rather not but I this I tell you… we may even be classified as an “odd” couple for that matter.

Then one day (or night), we decided to be a “normal” couple…

So how about a lovely dinner by the bay… where you can enjoy the cruise along the Manila Bay for almost 1 and a half hour with a live music to serenade you as you eat…

Warning: Do not attempt this stunt if you have motion sickness.

The awkward-haggard faces upon arriving…

Upon arriving at the upper deck of the cruise, “awkwardness” took its place. Tables were formally arranged with all the other couples celebrating their anniversaries and what not. We were not used to that formal dinner for “couples” we just enjoy the comforts of fast foods and restaurants nearby. Yes, this experience is for a change.

Anyhow, we managed… As the cruise started and the music begins to serenade us…

The food was served. This is not a buffet style dinner. Only one plate with one serving for each person complete with desert. No table set-up but the ambiance as we cruise along the bay was enough for the night. The food was okay. Nothing special, unless you pre-requested it to be arranged.

As you know, Manila Bay has this distinct smell but during that time, we didn’t even notice it. Nigel and I conversed as we eat… but as soon as we finished, the waters become rough and the people (older people) started to get dizzy and was all over the place…

The highlight of the night was when the rain poured after 45 minutes of cruising I guess… We didn’t expect it but Nigel and I were noticing the other far side of the bay seemed to be raining already…

We didn’t care of the slight rain, we enjoyed the city lights and the lively SM Mall of Asia but then it poured so hard we were forced to gather at one side of the mini cruise ship because the rain was soaking us already. The crew knew how to manage their costumers but the elders seem to be the problem (nervous breakdown, I guess).

We then went down to the lower deck so that we can be protected from the rain until we decked back to the shoreline.

Still managed to take a picture after the rain...

We didn’t get a discount for that matter but hey, the experience was worthwhile— adventure yet again.

And then I thought, Is that a bad omen for us being a “normal” couple? Nahhh…

Sometimes, we just can’t control everything happening in our lives. Let’s just enjoy our stay in this world while it lasts. Every time is a perfect time when you are with your loved one.


1. Visit Sun Cruises Inc. website and e-mail them regarding your preferred date. For the time you may choose from 4:30PM-5:45PM, 6:15PM-7:30PM, 8:00PM-9:15PM.

We chose the 6:15PM time slot because I thought that the sun sets at around 6PM but I was wrong. LOL. You can choose the earliest time so you can enjoy the Manila Bay sunset.

2. Pay the amount needed Php 550.00 per head.
3. Go to their docking area 30-45 minutes before the time.
4. Enjoy and take pictures.

Once again, thank you Sun Cruises for another good addition to our memory lane.

Pardon for the poor quality of pictures, I just used my cellphone camera.

LittleNars’ first WordCamp Experience: WordCamp Philippines 2010 :]

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Finally I was able to attend the WordCamp Philippines 2010 (3rd WordCamp event in the Philippines) with my mum and brother, Jeric at De La Salle – College of St. Benilde last October 2, 2010. I wasn’t able to attend to the first and 2nd WordCamp (though I was registered to the said event) because yes, you’ve guessed it right, DUTY CALLS…

Guess how I have attended this year’s??? Hmmmmm…. (Soooo not allowed to tell :P)

Anyway, after attending WordCamp Philippines 2010, the first thing that I did was to update my WordPress blog and asked Jeric if he had a back-up of all the posts that I made here. Luckily, he said YES ‘cause now I don’t need to be worried of doing such.

I thought WordCamp was only for bloggers using the platform WordPress but also for website developers (don’t ask me about this, I am just a plain blogger…LOL!)

I attended 3 “breakaway sessions” in the morning such as:

  • WordPress Setup and Maintenance by Markku Seguerra
  • The Internet is not just for Porn (Videos can be wholesome, too!) by Kring Elenzano
  • Blogging with Passion by Jayvee Fernandez

Then, in the afternoon, we were gathered at the hall/theater (whatsoever) for some talks and Q and A portion with the “Mr. WordPress” himself, Matt Mullenweg.

I thought this was just some blogging event, but I was wrong. We had certificates!!!:] too bad I can’t place it on my “Comprehensive Resume” because yes, it is not “some-kind-of-related to Nursing” Ughh.

Nevertheless, I would like to thank WordCamp Philippines 2010 organizers and its sponsors for an awesome event. I was able to spend bonding time with my family too :]

*Pardon me for this super late post. :]

iPhone 4 is now here :] Early Christmas gift?!

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

Just this day, my lil sister, Roxanne excitedly told me that iPhone 4 is already here. I was like, you go buy it and let me have your old iPhone. Lol!

I was never really a fan of Apple but I like how classy, stylish, elegant and useful it is for a techie person. Anyway, she told me how advanced this iPhone 4 is and I must admit I fell “inlove” with it too.

Each brand has made their own version of touch screen phones or I must say “iphone-ish” look and features. However, they will never beat Apple because iPhone is iPhone and iPhone 4 is here for you to explore and enjoy.

The iPhone 4 have these interesting features all in one phone:

  • Video call or what they call “FaceTime”, since it has 2 cameras one focused to you and one to everything/everyone else
  • High resolution and sharpest phone screen you can ever have which they call, RetinaDisplay
  • Multi-tasking feature, in which, you can use different apps simultaneously
  • High Definition Video recording and editing function, perfect for capturing those precious moments with your friends and loved ones
  • 5-megapixel camera with LED Flash, for an iPhone, it is definitely an upgrade.

There is so much more to learn about iPhone 4 here. It is perfect not only for entertainment purposes and reaching out to your loved ones but also for business.

Globe launched the iPhone 4 in the country last, September 24,2010 with a range of customizable plans designed for iPhone customers. What’s more is that you can experience iPhone 4 through booths at Greenbelt and Glorietta.

The full pricing and availability details for iPhone 4 in the Philippines will be available soon on their website.

I now know what I want for Christmas. AHEM! :]]
