K10 and KTina

Finally, I joined the Rotaract of Munting Pag-Asa Davao yesterday. I've been mulling over it the past few months from the impending invitation by my beloved friend Ate Jireh. She has been a huge influence when it comes to helping people. And I get ideas by what she does. :) Thanks for the pleasant welcome guys! I appreciate it. /me is very happy to work with y'all. Service to others. Eee--yeahh!

I know helping people usually comes spontaneously and by joining groups, maybe it won't be that at all. But, i was listening to Les Brown and he was saying about getting involved in communities that would help people. And connecting with people with the same agendas in mind. Of course, I said to myself: "I won't lose my "random acts of kindness" activity. Those in the moment things I constantly engage myself into, specially if I am in a loving mood."

And it was quite fitting that Rochelle and I was inducted yesterday, in time for the Kadayawan Celebration. Kadayawan is a special event for Davao and for me. I don't know I just feel excited whenever the festivity is drawing near. The major streets would be oozing with exotic fruits (durian, jackfruit, rambutan, lansones, mangosteen) and lots of freebies and discounts. But, more than that... the air is filled with music inspired by the natives that gives you this upbeat feeling.

Back to the the meeting, it was festive and was pretty much Kadayawan inspired. :)

The highlight of the meeting was the "Ikebana" demonstration by Lady Veronica Tirol.

and it deserves a post.. all on its own. I'll recount the basic Ikebana demonstration soon. :)

There's so many things I want to share... i'll share it to you soon.
