Why Mothers are Heroes: Appreciation Post on National Hero Day (Shoutout: Happy Birthday to my Mama!)
Last year, I was finally able to go to Buwakan ni Alejandra-- Balamban’s ~STUNNING~ flower garden! I went there with my Mama, sister and niece. For this post, I am going to show you how lovely the garden is. All photos herein are just to showcase the place. I will have an entirely different post with photos of me and my family in this beautiful place.
Here are helpful pieces of information about the place is:

How do you get there?

Always a beauty no matter where you look.💛💚
I want to go back to this place again. Hopefully soon, when the MECQ is lifted here in Cebu. This stunning place has captured my heart, and I would love to experience its beauty once more.
The photos I posted here are meant to be on my phone gallery only. Yeah. My sister always asked me why I take so (SO MANY) many photos of places-- random trees and flowers and sunups and sundowns and random scenery when I go to certain places and I WOULD NEVER ever UPLOAD THESE PHOTOS on my social media accounts. I shared with her that I take photos for myself, and not for others. I developed this habit just recently, around 2019, when I reflected that it is more important to live a life that is beautiful and true to oneself much more than what others see that a person has. I keep these photos because they are memories-- my memories. When I look back at these photos, I replay the moments in my head, and I smile. I might not live an "amazing great awesome glossy-magazine-cover life" but I have life, I am given this life, and I am grateful for each breath that I have, and that I have free will to get to create these beautiful memories-- this is a life far greater than what I have dreamt for myself when I was a self-centred teenager back in the days.
Now I am sharing these photos with the rest of the world here in Hive because what is beauty if not beheld? I hope you get captivated by the place just as I have.
‘Til the next post, hivers! Remember that you are loved beyond borders and beyond time & space. Okay? Okay. 💛❤️
