It rained so hard since the dawn yesterday, July 17, 2009. But around 1:00 in the afternoon, the rain has stopped. I immediately prepared myself and told my children and my best friend Mae to wait for me at my boy’s school because we are going to the Provincial Capitol Grounds. We are to take part of the Ako Mismo in Bacolod City Event.
After my boy’s exams, we bought toothbrushes and toothpastes to bring as donations to the said event. When we arrived the rain was starting to pick up, so I immediately looked for my fellow Negros Bloggers Mommy Dhadha of Maldita and Sistah Lois of The Pinay Blogger; other bloggers where not able to attend the event because of work. My best friend Mae brought my children to Dunkin Donuts to eat some snacks and to take shelter while my fellow bloggers and I register for the event, take our commitment and buy ourselves some original Ako Mismo Dog Tags.
The rained poured so hard but it didn’t stop the three bloggers from registering and going through the flow. We took our pledge form and write our commitments to help the Philippines in facing a brighter future. Then we went and donated the toothbrushes and toothpastes for the children in the mountainous areas of Negros and then visited some booths. After which, we went and bought ourselves some dog tags. We were not able to visit the other booths. There was a concert but we couldn’t even listen because of the heavy rains.
Since the rain wouldn’t stop, we were forced to take shelter. So we went to Dunkin Donuts where my children waited. We ate donuts and drank some hot chocolate drink. We stayed there for hours because it was raining cats and dogs.
Oh well, though it rained so hard, I was glad that I was able to buy original Ako Mismo Dog Tags and meet-up with some fellow Negros Bloggers. On top of that, I was happy that we were able to prove our commitment to help make the Philippines a better place and even help the children of Negros.
