Dining at Ponsyon by Breakthrough

I've always wanted to travel, see many beautiful places and of course, EAT! Perhaps one of the best things about my working as a teacher in a language center is that I get to dine out in different restaurants, go to different places and do a lot of exciting activities I never thought were possible. 

Aligue Rice and Grilled Pork Belly
I mean, I'm definitely not Ms. Congeniality and I often hesitate to do things or try something new, but with my students, I feel like I've got nothing to lose. They make me value and live life as if it were my last. Sometimes, I do regret ever spending that much at the end of day, but after a long time and I start reminiscing about the past... It just makes me happy and smile.

Anyway, these were shots at Ponsyon, a restaurant by Breakthrough at Plazuela de Iloilo. Breakthrough's really a popular restaurant here in Iloilo especially when it comes to seafood. They've got all the mouth-watering Filipino dished you could ever think of! The famous Breakthrough restaurant is situated in Villa, but Ponsyon is located at Plazuela de Iloilo near SM City.

Your money's worth it and the waiters and waitresses are just so kind and polite.

NEO News Plus

You may have forgotten so let me reiterate that I am a presently working as a teacher at NEO International Language Center. I've been working full-time for almost 6 months now. However, I am planning to leave and pursue my nursing career as mandated by Parents and Relatives Act of 2012.

That's me and Teacher Carl
I really feel bad about leaving especially that the staff as well as my students have played such an important role in changing the way I view life, work and love in general. I really don't want to go but the law is the law. Do I have a choice? Yeah. Sure I do. I can actually decide but it's going to be one month of cold war in the house. Haha. 

Me and my boys
From L to R: Teacher Erl, Teacher Ronnie and Teacher Renz
Deciding on what to do next. Boy did we feel nervous!
Well that's me, and I look pregnant! Hahaha.
Anyway, enough of my UNSURE future. Let's just hit it with my post about our school's activity for the month of March.It's NEO News Plus. Well before I touch that subject any deeper, I'd like to inform you that our school holds monthly activities for the students to enjoy. [Hmm. Did I say enjoy?]
