And only if you guys want to!

 

As you might have already figured out, I’m pretty passionate about my yoga practice and so I thought that I should share with you Angela and I’s joint instagram account baby @ouromjourney. We started the account so that we had a project that we could do together even when we go back to our separate realities (a.k.a. school) and also so that we had a way to track our progress. On @ouromjourney, we post the monthly challenges that we join, anything related to a healthier lifestyle (exercise, food, random cute baby animals) and our acro yoga photos. I’m really proud of the last one because it was only last year during Global Mala Project where we did Acro yoga for the very first time. It’s almost been a year since then and we have definitely improved! 

So if you guys want to check our yoga selfies out, click away and leave comments! 😀 Thank you and Namaste mothafuckaaaaas

Project Volunteer: The Hero in Me with PMAP + CUPA

For my first NSTP Volunteer activity, I decided to ask my friend Carlo if there was anything that I could participate in as his lovely assistant/slave. I met Carlo back in the day when I first moved to Manila; Tita Mardi heads this Japanese exchange student tour every year and Carlo is always the head volunteer so this was when our paths first crossed. Carlo is a “Joy Riser” (that’s his twitter username) by profession. He gives talks and workshops to young teens and adults that teach them to find inspiration, passion, and give meaning to their work and daily lives. So when I asked Carlo if there was anything that I could volunteer for, he invited me to this “gig” that he was going to have the following Thursday. He was to give a talk to the leaders of organizations of the urban poor/informal settlers in Quezon City.

This talk was organized by the Persons Management Association of the Philippines and the Claret Urban Poor Apostolate; PMAP is an associate of Golden ABC so I was really surprised when Carlo told me this. I have to say, I was quite delighted by the fact that of all companies, it was a fashion retail one that I had the privilege to help in their cause. Although my task was just to be Carlo’s assistant, I left feeling alot lighter than when I first arrived.
