Nuffnang Family Day

A lot of firsts happened on this event. My first trip to Tagaytay. My first time to hold a picnic on the hill. My first time to get physical on games. My first time to light lanterns. My first time to witness snowfall. My first time to bring home loads of goodies. 

Thanks to my good friend Marq for the invite. I've always been wanting to go to Tagaytay for the longest time. You made it come true friend.. :)

Nuffnang is a blog advertising community. I've heard and seen it a lot of times, but never had the idea how it works. Until my friend introduced this to me and got the chance to invite me on one of their  sponsored events. From that day on, I willingly signed up for Nuffnang. It's good to hear they will even help you generate income by simply allowing them to post advertisements on your site. It's a win-win situation for both ends!

Nuffnang held their Nuffamily Day at Crosswinds Swiss Luxury Resort in Tagaytay. It's a long drive to get there but the views from the outside supersedes it. The view of Taal volcano, the pine trees and the numerous resorts lined up along the street. What has captured my interest the most is the picnic held on top of the hill. Families gathered around and laid their mats on. Foods were served and everyone gladly feasted on them. Games and activities like Hephep Hurray, paper dance and the boat is sinking, made everyone burst with laughter. Loads of prizes and give aways from sponsors were given away.

What I enjoyed the most in this event is the lighting of the paper lanterns. It is also called sky lanterns and traditionally found in some Asian countries. You can typically see this on weddings. I saw it on Judy Ann Santos' wedding. And I find it kaaliw! So when we were told that each one of us will be lighting a lantern, I never had second thoughts of getting my share. It's very delicate and you will be needing the right timing as to when you are going to launch it, else it will burn.. Sayang lang

I had my own interpretation as to why we light lanterns and lift them up. We are the lanterns vying to reach for our dreams (symbolizes by the stars in the  sky). In order for us to do that, we need to step up, leave our comfort zones and dare th face the challenges. We might not know whether we will be able to make it or not, but what's important is we have tried. Some lanterns didn't make it, they simply fell on the ground. And my interpretation is that those lanterns were the people who were afraid of braving their fears, as if something's holding them back to do what they like. Unless you take your fears away from your system, nothing will happen. 

Crosswinds at Tagaytay made our stay memorable by giving us a tour on their Christmas village. It's a whole year round Christmas feeling! They have the Santa house which shoots snow and a Christmas store.

I am thankful to be a part of this event. This I will truly cherish! And I am looking forward that Nuffnang will be able to hold more events as fun and entertaining like this. And I hope, this time, I will get an invite for I have just signed up.. :)
