I gave her enough budget good for 30 person and we decided to visit Devine Mercy Hill. It is a religious and a holy place for devotees of the Devine Mercy. It is where you can find the 50 ft. statue of Jesus, who is the source of the Devine Mercy.
What a nice activity to enjoy the food that I missed; having a good time with my mom and neighbors that the company I enjoyed so much.
I still love the simplicity of LIFE. The simple taste of food that satisfy my food craving and the fun that could last a lifetime.
The picture above is called Peanut Kisses, locally made from Bohol, a place in the Philippines where good food and amazing scenery is located. I had a wonderful Christmas Holiday in the Philippines!

If you want to visit this place while having a vacation in the Philippines, just book a flight to Cagayan de Oro City. From the airport, you can ask a taxi for around 1K-1.5K round trip or better yet, pay 2,500 heading to Dahilayan Zipline. You will pass by Del Monte Plantation too. If you are looking for an affordable tour guide, drop a message here and I will share to you the contact number of a tour guide that I know.
We are just having fun in the middle of the pineapple plantation. Did you know that during harvest time, you can eat as many pineapple that you can eat for FREE. Strickly for eating in the premises but, you can't bring home for Free!
The Pineapple Plantation of Del Monte Philippines is located in Mindanao, just few hours drive from the city of Cagayan de Oro.
The picture above shows how they water this pineapple farm. In some areas, they water the farm using a private plane.
If you want to visit Del Monte Pineapple Plantation in Bukidnon, hire a taxi or contact a Filipino tour guide.

When I auditioned and was accepted, it made my life exciting and fun. I love to sing and being in the choir. Music is an inspiration and as a Glee Club member, singing gave me the power to dream. These pictures was taken when we went to Ateneo de Davao University to do a concert. I can't remember how many days we were in Davao but, all I remebered was the happy moments. We have fun as we chartered two buses to Davao.
I am proud to say that all of us in these pictures graduated a Bachelors Degree and landed a stable job.
Thanks to LongLong and Father Cuna for their precious time and financial support to XU College Glee Club.

For all these years, every All Saints Day and All Souls Day, I visited not only him but also my dear Tito and some friends that I have known for life.
When I arrived the Philippines, I visited Divine Shepherd to say a little prayer for them who holds dear to my heart.
Life is truly precious! We should not waste it for nothing! Do something nice to others everyday!

I don't think I've been more ready for a Christmas break since I was in college, 15 years ago. This year has been a pretty busy one after getting promoted at work, my pay increased, sure but so did the workload, of course! I've been burning the midnight oil pretty regularly here, especially with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, so it's hard to catch up.
Either way, that's why I'm ticking off the days on my calendar until December 23. That's when the wife and I are going to visit our daughter, Sarah, for the first time in a few months. We'll trim the tree, roast marshmallows and sing Christmas songs just like we always did. It's truly going to be great! I'm looking forward to just taking it easy at Sarah's. It will be nice to spend the time with her and her husband, plus her three adorable dogs who may just be spoiled more than a grandchild would be! Plus, after hearing about this great Phoenix sears hvac offer they've started redesigning like every room in the house, so it'll be all brand new when we get there. Can't wait! One more day down!

The picture above is the progress in 5 days. They are done with the second floor flooring.
The picture above is when they did the posts.
Here is when they did the mapping.
This is when they dug the hole for the posts about 4 feet deep.
The second floor concrete flooring was poured in. The picture below is when I took the picture at the second floor showing the street below.
Showing the materials ... the wood framing would costs a lot. So, if you have these wood materials, after the concrete project will be completed....will be useless. On my part, I will either donate it to my relatives or, make a wood house in my aunt's place. These wood framing materials costs almost $1,500.
Some workers were having a fun time up there. PSSTTTT...be careful!
Anyway, it is now in their 8th day, they are framing the rooftop.
They will stop for 8 days after working for 12 days just to season the concrete flooring. They will resume after those days and probably, my project will resume for another 15 days and will be done by then,HOPEFULLY!

All of this started when I was watching a game on my expert satellite TV between the aforementioned Islanders and the best team in the history of the world, the Philadelphia Flyers. Anyone who watches the Flyers knows that are awesome and have kick butt colors and will beat your brains out and give you H-E double hockey sticks. So when Frans got laid out it was no surprise, and the crowd cheered and even Islanders fans left the game with renewed respect for Philly. Then the suspensions happened, and now everyone's angry. Seriously Bettman, quit micro-managing the sport.

The experiences of seeing the jeepneys, commuting, the crazy traffic, the lechon, and the faces of my family and friends that I longed so dearly got me so excited. I will be in the Philippines for three months and I will make the most of my stay here. It is good to be home.

The castle at night is truly enchanting! It changes colors from time to time and the music can be heard in the entire kingdom...lol, I am now in my hallucinating world of fantasy! But, kidding aside, Disney World is the perfect place to bring your family! If you surprise your children and let them choose where they want to go, it will be memorable!
Inside the park, I can't help but noticed some families have their separate route. Children wanted to watch the stage show of Lion King and father wants to see the motor cross stunt! The best way to save your time and watch most of the shows is PLANNING and get the FAST PASS! Get along with your kids! After all, this place is really for CHILDREN. Children-at-heart goes second, LOL!

Those cars parked below owned by the spectators from different places. Most of them are tourist who come to Biloxi and enjoy the fun activities, eat good food and stay in the resorts in this area. This event is the first race of the year for the Offshore Super Series powerboat Racing Association. It was indeed spectacular! Colorful race boats with an airshow of helicopters that hover above the boats as they race for speed. It truly roars and the excitement is non-stop adrenalin rush!
The picture above shows the helicopter as it hovers the boats on the race. There were premium viewing areas provided by the sponsors such as Beau Rivage, Hard Rock, Small Craft Harbor, The Isle Casino, Pt. Cadet Marina, and The Dock Bar & Grill. Luckily for us, we are not in the premium area but, where we are is just an amazing place to watch it close.
A snap shot taken from where we are, Hard Rock Biloxi parking garage. Those who are not contented with this place, pay for a wristband to see it closer. Wristband prices were $ 10 to $25 and amazing location awaits you.

On the far right is our kitchen. I will show you next time how we created a space into this not-so-spacious kitchen.

We were supposed to have our grocery at Walmart but, we decided to stop in Golden Corral to have dinner instead. We stayed less than two hours and when we went out, the storm clouds had passed.I took the picture of the clouds above the Golden Corral building. The wind blew wildly and we went in in a hurry before we will be caught by the rain.
The picture above was the scary clouds that started forming. It seems that it was ready to swallow us in whole!
I never had grilled chicken for a long time so, I ordered this and guess what? I had no regrets because it's tender and the taste is so good. I can only wish for a steamed rice. Try it!

I remember this area. I saw the sign of DXCC so, this is Velez St nearby the junction of Marcos Bridge( W), Macabalan (N) and heading to Lapasan on (E).
The location of the photographer is in the park of VICENTE de Lara which is nearby Central Bank and the Provincial Capitol of Misamis Oriental.
I can only imagine the crowd in this area who came from the East side of the city such as Lapasan, Cugman, Gusa, Bugo who occupied this place because it is very convenient.
