It’s been a while since I really took time to blog about anything I can! So much has happened, so let the pictures tell the story. :) Warning: Super Photo Heavy!

June 20 - 24, 2012: Unilab Ideas Positive Boot Camp

Team B.A.N.G. (Building A Network of Goodwill), a group of which I am a part of, was chosen to be one of the 12 Finalists for this year’s Unilab Ideas Positive. We got the chance to be part of the Three-Day Bootcamp and the privilege to be given a seed money of 100,000 Php for the implementation of our project, ‘Catch the Rain, We Can!’

So, here’s the fun we had at MNL then.

Day 1: June 20, 2012

After all the travelling to and from Manila, this one’s a first: PAL Boeing! :)

Team Bang’s Dyan and Baldo. Baldo is our Team Leader as well as our Inang Bayan! Haha. :)

Yours Truly and Bebut (Team Coach), the Most Active Youth. :)

Then finally upon arriving at Manila, we were greeted by this:

The Sound Of Traffic. Amazing Musical Notes! Don’t know how I did that. But I’m sure I wouldn’t like to get used to this kind of traffic!

Accommodation: The Legend Villas, Mandaluyong. It took us around 2 to 3 hours getting there! It was still very early, around 8 pm, but we were dead tired. So, we ate dinner at a nearby (not so near really) Mang Inasal, went back to the hotel and called it a day. Need to rest for the rest of the days! :)

Day 2: June 21, 2012

Good Food = Good Day. Thanks to the complimentary Buffet Breakfast at Lola Maria Restaurant, we always get well-fueled for the day!

The cute pieces at the hotel lobby:

Bebut and Baldo seriously playing the Sungka.

Before we get to Bayanihan Center, picture picture!

I can’t let go of the inner Self-Proclaimed Fashionista. Outfit shots!

Outfit of the Day: Floral Chiffon Top | Bayo Gray Carrot Pants | Jessica Orange and Gold Jelly Flats | Parisian Red Satchel Bag | Mango Peach Cardigan

Photo Ops with the buildings. There’s none much in Cebu! Was a bit shy at first, and the lighting’s not good since I stayed in the shade. But a good one still! :)

When we reached the Unilab Bayanihan Center:

Our I.D.’s! I forgot to tell you we are five in the team. Sadly, our teammates John Lord and Alya didn’t make it to the Boot Camp. But the show must go on! :)

Some of the many new friends I met! :)

Day 3: June 22, 2012

We visited the Enchanted Farm at Bulacan for this day of the Boot Camp. Here we can see the social marketing theories in action. We had a tour around the farm, organic lunch, and demonstrations for the different products they make like Enchantea, Cheese, and Processed Meat.

Team Bang!





My tea addiction includes Enchantea!

Cheese Making 101. Look at how smiling Sir Barry is. :D

Just made fun out of flies. :)

Love Pool. ♥

Day 4: June 23, 2012

This day is the final one for the Boot Camp! This was spent on a day of seminars, and teachings from the previous years’ Teams that won in Ideas Positive. Of course, who would forget the fellowship night?

After the Party…

We had no time to buy treats to bring home (early flight the next day), so cookies, everyone? :)

That’s it! Enjoy! :)
