About Hazel Pascual-Nespral

Hi there! In Chinese, my name “Hazel” means “simple” & “hope.” I’m Hazel Pascual-Nespral, a freelance writer, real estate broker & insurance agent from Pasig City, Philippines.

My passions include food, especially pasta, cats, theater, travel & Toastmasters (a public speaking & leadership club).

I recently got married so I’m also into saving & investing. I would also like to share about what I learned on love & life. Plus, give tips on how to plan the wedding of your dreams, since I was clueless when I got married.

I can’t resist the urge to document the things that inspire me or give my life meaning.

Basically, I’m just a “simple” girl wanting to give “hope” to the world =)

Ghost Tour along Marikina Riverbanks on December 28, 2016

Source: meetup.com

It’s Halloween this Christmas!

Test your courage as we take a stroll along the Marikina Riverbanks, the death site of many typhoon Ondoy victims.

The Marikina River washed away many homes during typhoon Ondoy that took many lives. The bodies of these people were no longer found. Organizers claimed that there are ghosts of children who want to piggyback people.

This tour is an informative activity that aims to explain about the reported haunting in Marikina.

Meditation for Peace and Healing at Quezon City on December 26, 2016

Source: http://health.usnews.com

You probably have had too much noise and chaos already (this holiday season and during much of this year). Maybe you are longing for silence, peace, and a space to just be.

Some of us are fighting for justice and peace by making our voices heard. But another way is to nurture peace in our hearts and radiate it outwards. We all want the same thing — whether it’s an end to the killings and the war in Syria, justice for the oppressed, peace in our own families, or happiness in our hearts.

Let us sit together for peace and healing. Be with us in a simple gathering of souls who are trying to celebrate a different kind of Christmas.
