So every year, the quest for the perfect planner that works for the lifestyle of mum and I poses a challenge. This year, we planned to have more Puppy Adventures for 2018. We have a little windows for travel so we are like on an assignment! It is amazing that we found a planner that have that in mind~ With the year of the Earth Dog as a Chinese Lunar Year turns – how much more good vibes could you ask for?

Having a dotted journal gives you enough creative freedom to design your pages to fit for your needs. And they have included more than enough pages for you to scribble down your travel itinerary and plans~ Inside you have a map of the Philippines that you can color or shade in order to see if you have visited all the 81 provinces~

Full span pictures in between months are beautiful~ I love this page. It reminds me to listen to mum~

January and February pages are all swamped already! We are looking forward for the rest of the year and each of ’em pages will contain a documentation of our fun filled 2018! I commend those people behind this creation. Proud to be Pinoy and love the hearts poured in to this.

Shout out to my friends @laranovales2 and @Lukecepheid for being equally planner geeks like us. It pays to have these bunch. They understand the importance of having a planner that works for our lifestyle. Do check out their pages~

Praying for Healing in PADRE PIO SHRINE, SANTO TOMAS, BATANGAS

Puppy Mood: Out exploring while we have time!

Puppy Facts:

Pambansang Dambana at Parokya ni Santo Padre Pio , commonly known as Padre Pio Shrine, is a parish church and pilgrimage site situated at Brgy. San Pedro, Santo Tomas, Batangas, Philippines. Standing proud with its roof resembling a “salakot”, a traditional Filipino hat used by farmers and fishermen in their respective agricultural activities as their protection against heat and rains – this is surely one for the books for pilgrims in the Philippines and around the world.

Puppy Seal of Approval:

Have you ever implored for something so fervently that it makes your heart flutter after you knelt down and pray? Being in a place where you can be surrounded by people who also have their hearts heavy with love and praise feels comforting. So with this, the puppertripper stamp our seal of approval on the following:

  1. A celebration. Padre Pio has been known for healing masses and prayers for special intentions. When you come here, make sure you check the mass schedule. We recommend not to miss the chance to celebrate the sacrament with your Pawmilies here. There is something about the place where solemn prayers are whispered that it soothes the troubled heart. The beautiful well-lighted high-ceiling church would take away the usual constricting feeling of traditional churches. Beautiful religious images surround the place so take time to see them.

  2. A wish and a promise. There is the wall where people put on their locks and rosaries as a forever reminder of their wishes and promises in this place. Though it is not a reassurance for anything, but for a person who has been heavily laden with their problems and challenges they face – anything would make them feel better.

  3. A pause from all the hustle. Mom has been so busy. We are equally guilty of not being able to fulfill our spiritual duties due to the demands of work, school and family. Mom would say that it was never an excuse but human (and pupper) as we are… we come short. I would usually see mom dragging herself home and then taking a bath then sleep off because she was so tired. She would always tell me that we would go for a puppytrip when things get a little bit bearable. So on trips like these, give your adrenaline pumps a vacay and pause. It is a time where we can just pause and reconnect with Papa God.
