Year-End Treats

2011 is almost over... Let's celebrate the coming year with foods! And here are some of my year-end treats with my friends and colleagues.

This week, I craved for some baby back ribs! I want something new. Something I rarely eat. And here it is! Yummy, mouth-watering, Baby back ribs!! burp!

This treat is not really that planned. We opt for a chicken barbecue, but decided to go for the nearby restaurant near our office. "Binagoongan with Fried rice, fried egg and Mangoes". A Filipino delicacy.

Next is best for New Year! It is round (a lucky shape for Chinese Feng Sui). Sweet for a sweeter year!

The last! Ice cream treats! Well, my colleagues just decided to have an ice cream after long hours of shopping in the mall!

This is my last blog for 2011! Happy New Year everyone!!!

Windy and Chilly Christmas!

This day kinda cold and chilly. But of course, going to the beach is exciting! hehe here are some of my photos in Samal Island. Oh yes! A little bit windy while crossing the sea.. The waves are moderate. So its not so freaky for me. hehe
This is my first photo. Low tide..
Caliclic Resort. Caliclic, Babak, Island Garden City of Samal.
The wind start getting stronger. The tide is getting higher. And all of us are 10 meters away from the shore! Chilly...
At last, milder.. Back in taking pictures again! hehe
Back to Davao City.. But before going back, I took a picture of the Port of Davao... Lights onboard...

Merry Christmas to all!

Christmas Time Again!

Christmas time is here! I don't know if its for the weather (a little bit chilly and rainy).. And this time, it's really Christmas time because:

as we all know, malls decorates to catch customers attention. Small and big decors attracts people to go for shopping! Or just have picture taking with the decors..

Most of us have Christmas trees in our home. This decor caught my attention when I went shopping. It is acrylic. Looks like a snowflake especially when I turn on the christmas lights.

And of course, almost everyday we had our Chrismas Party and gift giving. This photo was taken during our Christmas Party. We had an exchanging of gifts with our code names (funny, but our code names are names of some of the sexy stars both local and international!). Its fun!

This Christmas is so merry and so blessed. The unexpected bonus from our employer. Hope that our personal business will have a good start.. And I'm so thankful.. Next year will be a tough year. Another challenge.. Again, Merry Christmas to all!!!

Bloom in Focus

As a hobby, my favorite subject is a flower. Sometimes it is called "bloom" and sometimes it is called "blossom". It has its own beauty.
Blooms have an immediate impact on happiness. Every person, especially females have a positive emotions when receiving flowers. Their smiles, extraordinary delight and so much gratitude.
Blooms have a long term positive impact on impression. The feeling of less depressed, bothered, and worried after receiving blooms, prove unique sense of joyfulness and life contentedness.
Blooms make intimate bonds with family and friends.
Blooms make us happy! So give your love ones a flower this Christmas season and make them feel loved!

Trekking Manila

These photos are my collection during my trip in Manila. It was summer time and my friend invited to stay with her even just for a week. And of course, I definitely agreed and had fun!

My friend's apartment is near Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This international airport is located along the border between Paranaque and Pasay, and southwest of Makati. This is a busy airport and the main international gateway to the Philippines. Anf of course, the hub for all Philippine Airlines. That's why in my photo, Philippine Airlines as my subject.
Anyways, we just stayed in her terrace and counted every airplane taking off and the airplane that landed. What a past time! But at the same time, we catch things up.

This was taken at Glorietta Mall, one of the largest malls in Manila. Located in Makati City which is owned by Ayala Corporation. This mall contains lots of shops and restaurants. There are also cinemas, gyms, arcades and has a large atrium for special events. Kinda tiring walking around the mall. At least I burnt some of my calories! hehe

Taken at Trinoma Mall. Another Ayala Land owned. One thing I like in this mall. Its natural feature. There is a rooftop park which contains many water features. I think there were seven, and one of them is in this photo! Amazing!

Bonifacio High Street. Another Ayala Land property located in Taguig. First in Philippine retail. Along in its street, there are diverse cuisine, a lot of latest fashions. Experiencing mall in a park.

Thanks for reading my getaway! Happy blogging bloggers!

A Past From a Present

These photos are in my photography gallery. Kind of nostalgic. It's like an old photograph of the present.

This photo is taken somewhere in Davao del Norte, Philippines. It became a past to us because this land was ours. But we have to give it up because it is very far from our home. This landscape had a vast rice field. Now, cavendish bananas is the source of income here.

This photo was taken by a bored person during lunch time. We had a seminar, and of course, having a break time with nothing to do will give you ideas to get out of boredom. And here it is! Two pairs of shoes.

The "El Salvador del Mundo Church". One of the oldest church here in Mindanao. Built in 1800's.

One of the ancestral homes in Camiguin, Philippines. A preserved ancestral heritage.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy blogging bloggers!

Camiguin (Island Born of Fire)

Camiguin is called "Born of Fire". Located in the Northern Mindanao, Philippines. It was created by volcanic eruptions and land movements. It is a small island with lots of natural resources. There are hot and cold springs, waterfalls, mountains and beaches. I like here because they have a simple living and peaceful atmosphere for the residents.

The famous Katibawasan Falls.

Sunken Cemetery. The large white cross is very historical. A cemetery was gone because of the eruption of Old Vulcan Daan in 1871. Very nice place especially during sunset.

White Island. Well, literally, it is white because of its sand. It changes its shape and size with the season. No trees, no shade.
But its worth coming for!

The place is very beautiful! You'll never regret staying in Camiguin!

Hello Caraga!

Its been a while since my last blog. I'm so happy because I didn't expect that my Pagerank is 2! For how many years, I waited for this! hehehe

I would like to share my trip to Caraga. The hometown of my boyfriend. We went there with my family for some business reasons. Anyways, I love the place! Located somewhere in Davao Oriental. But these photos are taken somewhere in Mati.

This is called "Sleeping Dinosaur Island". Very amazing because it looks like a sleeping dinosaur!

Coastal road going to Mati.

For the first time! Got a picture that has a reflection of the sky! hehehe

This is Caraga coast. I didn't swim.. Know why? I'm afraid! It's facing Pacific Ocean!

See? Facing the Pacific! The waves are calm. But the idea that its facing a vast ocean, I'm scared!

It's time to go back to the house where we stayed. Getting darker... and also getting the most out of the sunset!

Well, till next blogging moment! Hope you like the photos!

Child at Play

I'm back! It's been a while. Got this pictures and remembered how to be a child again.
Got this picture when I was on vacation in Davao Oriental. I was so amazed how creative the child. They are poor and away from the city. And yet he got a toy dump truck that is made of wood!
This picture was taken last Sunday, Aug. 7, 2011 at Malagos Garden Resort when we had a Seminar about Farming.
And of course, these are my collections. These are small stuffed toys that my friends gave me. And I love them!

Hope you guys have also collections from your childhood. :]

The horizon that caught my attention.

Love the beach!! The white sand and blue water..

The corals..

I love this picture! It's unusual. The spiral cloud. The lovely day..

Summer is over and hopefully I can get shots of rainy season one of these days. hehe

Beachscape... Maxima Aqua Fun...

We often want a place to relax. Feel the heat of the sun. Feel the air brushing our skin. We sometimes want to escape from the busy city we live in. And so here some of the beaches in Island Garden City of Samal. Its a 15-30 minutes boat ride from Davao City.

The Maxima Aqua Fun. There are swimming, kayaking, fishing and snorkeling. Enjoy the giant slide that gets you dive to the abyss. But don't worry, there are lifeguards around to keep you safe.

Next is the sunset that shadows the shore... The tranquility of the sea really soothes your senses. Big help to recharge from a stressful career life. hehe

The boat that you see in this picture is the one for island hopping. Didn't have a chance for this island hopping adventure because there is reservation beforehand.

Summer is almost over. Hope you can have your get away too!

I just reminiscing riding an airplane! And these are some of the planes that brought me to my vacation destinations. hehehe

Cebu Pacific Air. This airline is one of the cheapest in the Philippines. Or should I say, the cheapest? It is the first local airline that introduced e-ticketing (no tickets! only print-outs!). It has fun up in the sky. they called it Fun Flights in domestic carriers. Games games games with prizes. :]

Silkair. Route: Davao-Cebu-Singapore. I like their food. Burp! Going to Sigapore is quite a long trip for me because it took 3 hours in the air! But it is worth it because Singapore is promising. And I love staying there!

Hongkong Express. This was taken in Ninoy Aquino International Airport. I can't forget this trip because we slept in the airport! We arrived in Manila around after lunch time. And it will be costly if we stay in a hotel because our flight the next day was very early. Around 7:30am! I enjoyed watching cabin crew with different uniforms. hehehe Anyway, going to Hongkong is scary. Lots of air packets. But its ok. I enjoyed staying in Hongkong!

I treasured this photo because this is the only photo I got up in the sky! Hope I can renew my passport again (it expired last March 2011). And I also hope I can still have a vacation with my family. I really want my next stop is in Europe!
