Its a SPONTANEOUS ROADTRIP! 

Last week, we decided we want to try out the newly built stage 3 skyway, but we don't want to waste the road trip so we looked for places we can go to. I stumbled upon the Inflatable Island PH because there are no needed medical certificate or testing, just ensure no family member is showing signs of sickness. We bought our ticket online, we opted for the Splash (2 hours) as we have an 8 year old and a 12 year old with autism, we weren't sure if they will actually enjoy the obstacles. 


We started the road trip at exactly 6AM and we got there around 9AM, though we stopped for a drive thru breakfast at Jollibee. When we got to the place, there were a lot of people already. The lounge was already full and we have a 60 year old who urgently needed a place to seat, so we settled on the Sunflower Lounge but then we were told it wasn't free. It was 500php per bed but the Sunflower lounge was swarming with people who are just taking photos so the relaxation couldn't be achieved. As we paid for the place(while a lot of people was just taking pictures and lounging on the bed for free), tita talked to a manager for the people to be cleared.


Our Splash time is 12NN to 2PM, we chose this because we were quite sure there would be no people on the island around this time. AND WE WERE RIGHT!

Around 11:30, they rounded us up for the safety guidelines, but we were able to get our vest at 11:55. We really enjoyed the island, it was really tiring but FUN! We are big cowards so there is a kuya who is stationed to help those who can't get pass an obstacle, and for our duration he was almost always following us!

 hi~ for this post, I will take you with me to my Grab for Good x Nas Academy Journey!

Last December, I saw this post on my facebook feed. Grab for Good and Nas Academy is looking for 100 content creators to join their program. So I thought, why not try!? I signed up and didn't actually thought about it after that!

Until January 5, I received and email saying I was shortlisted! I was chosen out of the 2.5k applicants to be part of the 200. Now, for them to narrow the 200 to 100, we will be interviewed. I was really nervous and I was thinking of not going to the interview. Hey! I got as far as 200 I think that alone is great.

On the night before the interview (January 7), I really couldn't sleep and my anxiety was through the roof! As the interview was morning and I was working a mid shift (1PM - 10PM), I wasn't able to attend the interview. I was so disappointed that slept through it! Thankfully, they emailed me again saying they can accommodate me on the next batch of interviews! On the morning of January 9, I was interviewed, it was a short interview I think because they need to accommodate 200 applicants. They told me that they will inform me if it was a YES or NO next monday(January 11) I was so anxious the whole weekend. Then Monday came, no news from them. I was sure I didn't get the scholarship but I was thinking a simple email of NO would have been great! So, Monday past and Tuesday came, I was still checking my email for my NO! At around 3PM, I got an email from Nas Academy...

I GOT IN! I WAS ONE OF THE 100 TOP CREATORS! 

The email also state that we will have an orientation on January 16. I was thinking it was to meet our instructor and to discuss our curriculum, but to my surprise NAS WAS THERE! and it was not a scary or a nerve wrecking kind of orientation! We started off dancing and everyone was so friendly, Nas himself, CMO of Grab, Cheryl and all the participants.


There were 28 participants from Singapore and Malaysia while 44 was chosen from the Philippines.

 I will be updating this with every session we have!
