30th Birthday and a day at PCAS

I turned 30! :))))

It was M's birthday a few days before me and we just had a simple celebration for him.
A bucket of chicken joy (free from BPI lolz) and our fave donut. 
Then came saturday with my family, we had a simple lunch feast and merienda.

For our celebration, I just wanted a simple and meaningful one so we booked a visit PCAS (Paws and Claws Animal Sanctuary) in Bulacan. We brought some donations and also our cake to share with their staff. I'm also very excited to see our sponsored dog Vino ( they changed his name to Leo) but the name "Vino" already stuck in my mind.

The sanctuary:
The long roof in the left side is for the dog's kennels and the right one is the cattery.

Vino's kennel

The dogs kennels are very spacious. Some dogs are in cage because they have conditions and need to be isolated..

This puppy named Aki, is roaming free :)

In the cattery...

this one wants me to carry her :)

very malambing one

The staff are very accommodating. They even bought softdrinks and sang "Happy Birthday" for us :)
This is ate rachel holding Vino. Special thanks also to kuya Erwin, kuya Eddie, kuya nestor and ate jenny ( I hope I remembered their names correctly)

Vino is such a fluffy and beautiful dog.

Snowbell met Vino :)

I do hope that they walk every single dog outside of their kennels to minimize the need to clean the kennels everyday. We were not able to bring some cleaning materials, I think they need a lot of those - detergents, gloves, sponge, garbage bags etc.

I would say, it was a nice, inspiring and opening experience for me.
 It was a great stress reliever and I felt ready to take on the week.
It inspired me to be more, to give more.

Seriously, even if we don't have the means to adopt a pet for now, we can sponsor, donate or volunteer. This kind of non profit organization relies heavily on donations so we really need to help them so they can also help a lot of furry friends.

Welcome 2016

Our original plan was to celebrate the NYE with his family but M was not feeling well so we stayed first with my family.  We arrived at around 9PM of NYE so I was not able to help my mom in the preparation.

Media Noche - Carbonara, Grilled fish, Lechon Kawali, Suman, Potato fries (Mojos kunwari), Biko, Suman and for desserts: Buko Salad, Leche flan, Graham cake

The next morning, we traveled to Luisiana and poor Snowbell got tummy ache.
We were very worried good thing she was already ok the next day.

Time for Sherlock's New Year special too :))) 

Aside from my Excel planner and online calendars, I still like to write my todos.
I bought my desktop calendar from one of the groups I follow:
it only cost P150 and proceed will goes to LB dog pound.

and then my daily todo list mini notebook from Papemelroti.

Ready for 2016!
Happy New Year :)
