The great thing about being a girl though is when backpacking, you carry less weight as ours are generally much lighter than guy's clothes.

Those tips sound simple enough. What I find difficult is creating an itinerary. Even if I have everything planned out, I always fail to follow the schedule for whatever reason.

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…

My notes on my Myanmar- Bagan and Inle lake

Travelled from Manila to Yangon (Singapore Airlines $200 roundtrip) then Yangon to Bagan.  Bought an MPT sim card with 1G data. 7,000 kyat for the sim $3 for the load. Took a Yangon airport taxi to bus station only 5000 kyat. Don't take the taxi drivers out side, they are over priced. Yangon to Bagan by JJ express bus. 1x1x1 seater ($20.99)The bus ride was long but bearable. Comfortable seats and the bus had a toilet.  It was cold so bring a jacket and a bonnet. The bus company provided a blanket, snacks, water and a neck pillow. - Bagan taxi to hotel 8T kyat to Shwe Na Di Guest House ( private room with bathroom $27) double occupancy. loved it. Breakfast was filling.
