Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Glorify God Instead

Yes, we know it's a time to mourn but always remember that criticizing what others do on the web still doesn't do any good to those who are devastated. It just moreover adds to the weight of the cycle of negativity. We all have the freedom to post whatever we want to share on the social media, and no one has the has the right to take away that privilege. Let's just stop this habit of finding faults at each other, and focus more on what we can do to glorify God. Pray and help. God bless the Philippines!

Back from the Dead

Here's a photo of me (obviously) taken by good friend Jepoy Vecino during our church's Family Day
 held on the 23rd of March in Summerland Resort.

Hello blogger friends! I'm back. Yes, I know that's a lame and cliche line but please spare me of your mockery. Have mercy on me! Anyway, let me switch from corny to drama mode as I utter my comeback speech. How I wish I'm really back in the bloggerverse for good. I miss doing this. I miss waking up in the morning, thinking about what to blog next. I miss my oozing creative juices. I miss posting comments on the interesting articles of my virtual buddies. I just miss everything about blogging!

A lot of things happened after my last thorough blog post dated June 25, 2012. I renewed my faith in the Lord, by deciding to use my talents and capabilities for His Kingdom's cause; I built new and refreshing kind of fellowship with my ever supportive church mates from South Hills Christian Community Church of Davao, Inc. (Yeah I know it's pretty long, that's why we call it South Hills for short); I got hired as a Copywriter by one of our city's biggest retail company; and sad to say, I got out from a 5-year relationship.

I believe I don't have to tell you the whole story of why everything happened and ended, but one thing's for sure, I know God is molding a perfect story for me. I have faith in Him, and I trust His heart. As the song goes, "All things work for our good, though sometimes we can't see how they could." He alone knows what's the best for me, that's why I won't question Him on why something has to end. Maybe it's really not meant to be, no matter how much we wanted to hang on. If it's God's will, let it be; if it's not, let go.

Enough of that tear-provoking recollection. Over all, I can say that most of the things that happened to me are positive ones. That's how good God is to me, and I'm forever grateful to Him. I believe I became a better Christian after the Youth and Kids Camp that we had last summer. After that, God's blessing poured out to me. That's the power of prayer. Well yes, I could say I'm still not as good as you think I am, but I believe I'm getting there. I know God will help me control my emotions. I will master being patient soon.

I'm a bit sleepy now 'cause I just came home from work. I'm gonna tell you more stories and revelations when I have more time! 'Til then, my lovelies! Don't forget to pray. Sleep tight everyone!

Much Love,

Davao City to host 23rd Ad Congress

The banner of the 22nd Philippine Ad Congress held in Camarines Sur 
on November 16-19, 2011 with the them, “Change the Game.”

The land of promise is all geared up to make it big in the events scene as the Ad Board finally awarded our city the hosting rights for the 2013 Advertising Congress which is the country's biggest gathering of business stakeholders, advertising and media leaders held every two years.

An ocular inspection was conducted last November 23-24, 2012 to look over Davao City's capacity to accommodate the high-profile assembly. The chief of Davao City Promotions and Investment Center (DCPIC), Jason Magnaye presented them the hotels, business establishments, possible venues and tourist spots.

According to Magnaye, the team led by chairman Raul Esteban gave our city positive remarks after their two-day visit saying that, "It's Davao's time now!” Acquiring the bragging rights in having this red-letter convention will certainly be a great advantage to us, because it will pave the way for other national and international organizations to hold their activities here.

Department of Tourism Sec. Ramon Jimenez said that Davao City is an ideal place for events because of its safe, clean and typhoon-free environment. As a testament, Public Safety Command Center has 17 CCTVs installed in 16 strategic areas in the city, that cover the entry and exit points and populated areas in the downtown areas. This nerve center for traffic monitoring and crime prevention has advanced the city's already notable peace and order operations.

The local government proposed for SMX Davao Convention Center as a venue for the Ad Congress because it is a conducive area for the 3,000 to 5,000 expected number of delegates that will be here for the said event. Magnaye affirmed the Ad Board that the city has a total of 6,600 lodging capacity. The mentioned figure constitutes both the hotels and small pensions.

In addition, another group is also considering our cily for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in 2015. These kind of events will draw more investors that will highlight Davao City; and contribute to the progress of our local economy. Magnaye estimated an average of P2,500 expenditure per participant which is definitely beneficial to our city.
