Sleeping Bags

On the first night when we moved to our new home, I pull out our sleeping bags from the box and I used one set for me. The house was ready to move in but, the thought of having so many home buyers who walked inside the bedroom seemed untidy to me. I decided to cover the whole carpet in the bedroom with a blanket afraid that something will crawl in the middle of the night. The first night, our appliances and furniture's did not arrive so; sleeping bag is a great alternative. It was very comfortable and I sleep so soundly. My thoughts of crawling creatures don't exist at all. My whole body was all tucked in and I felt secure. This thing is not only good for camping but, a good alternative in uneasy situation. Of course the next day, I realized that my imagination was just wild. The whole carpet was very clean and tidy. Nevertheless, I did my general cleaning in preparation of our moved-in day. Our furniture's and appliances arrived early that day and we fixed our bedroom first. Keep a sleeping bag set in your closet because it is very useful especially when you encounter a situation similar like mine.

Logo Design Company

I sure did miss my Glee friend's way back in College Days. I remembered the exciting stage performances, the music that we sang inside the little theatre, the camaraderie and most of all, the good times. December is a time for Reunion and get-together party and so; we decided to have one for our group. We even planned to have a T-shirt printing as a remembrance so, we started searching for a Logo Design Company. We are still trying to design a logo which we can use in all our Glee dealings and communications. So far, most of us are willing to push the get-together and volunteered to purchase the t-shirt once the design is finalized. The scheduled event would actually conflict with another party that I am committed to attend. Nevertheless, I would definitely try my best to come and be with them on this special moment. Most of us are blessed with successful careers and a family of our own. It is good to see them all soon and I am so excited to know the latest achievements of their lives. How about you? I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. Don't forget to share your blessings especially to those who are in need! Have a blessed Christmas!

Rice Cakes and Etcetera

One of the favorite foods that I missed in the Philippines are Mongo Siopao and "kakanin" such as PUTO and SUMAN of which, rice is the main ingredient. My neighbor who can prepare these goodies deliciously offered her services to make one for me.
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!

Del Monte Pineapple Plantation in Bukidnon

My friend I were planning to visit DAHILAYAN in the Philippines where the longest ZIPLINE in Southeast Asia is located. Sometimes, planning would yield to realization but with us, it would only caused us procrastinating. So, when one decided to go, it's no turning back! We grabbed our stuff and GO! Here we are at Camp Phillips Bukidnon.

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!

Filipinos call this place as little Baguio, the summer capital of the Philippines. The weather is very nice and cool. When you visit this place, protect yourself from cold weather. You should reserve a jacket.When I was in college, I frequent this place because some of my friends lived here. Oh I love this place. I love the pine trees and the cute and colorful houses of the employees.
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.

XU Glee Club Batch 90's

The best days of my life as a student was when I joined Xavier University College Glee Club. Our conductor/trainor/musical director/mentor was the late Professor Lino Y. Abrio. I was accepted and become a member since 1989 up to 1995.

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.

I missed the song, the music, the faces, the friendship, the laughters and the performance.

Divine Shepherd Memorial Park

Divine Shepherd Memorial Park is located in Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City. Almost 10 years ago, one of my close friends was buried here. He died of a car accident and it was the first time that I was able to visit this place because of him.
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!
