Ricefield at Laguna

My job does entail frequent traveling. Last week, I'm in Quezon Province. Right now, I am in Cebu City. Next week, I will be out of the country. Some would have wanted to have a job like mine; as for me, I just enjoy what God had provided for me and stay as amazed as ever to His creations.

This is a ricefield that I had passed by on my way. This is situated in Laguna. Seeing this green is really soothing and creates a peaceful mood.

Timoga Spring Pools - El Lauriento Resort

Last Thursday was my first time to experience swimming and feel the icy-cold water in the Timoga Spring Resort, Iligan City. It is located along National highway Timoga-Buru-un, in Iligan City, around some kilometers distant from the city proper. Its been a long time since I heard about the Timoga spring resorts, about its icy-cool and crystal-clear water that flows freely from one pool to another. It is said that the source of the cold water in Timoga springs comes from Lake Lanao in Marawi City which is 37 kms away from Iligan City.

And since I already experienced its cold waters for only Php50 per pax plus Php100 for table rental, I’m excited to share some photos taken from El Lauriento Resort, one of the five Timoga spring resorts.

By the way friends, there are other four spring resorts along the vicinity, which is easily accessible so, when in Iligan City, take time to visit the Timoga spring water resort and experience the excitement of swimming in icy-cold waters.

Iligan - CDO Travel September 2010

I know this is an uber late post. Pardon me. As of this writing, I am having my Iligan - CDO Travel July 2011. But before that, allow me to share some of the photos I had back September 2010.

Tinolang Isda, my favorite ulam in Mindanao and Visayas.


Durian is one of the famous fruits because of its distinctive odor, whom some find it offensive. But for me, its taste overpowers its odor. Do give it a try, you'll never regret you did.

Diyandi festival 2010, along quezon avenue, Iligan City.

I am blessed to have witnessed Diyandi Festival that year. As IliganToday.com states, Diyandi Festival is the official title for the city's month long cultural celebration. It concludes with the feast day of Saint Michael the Archangel on September 29. So, if you are planning to visit the province, might as well make it a September visit.

Baguio Travel June 2011 - 2

Last week, I enjoyed my travel and stay in Baguio City. Simply because I enjoy to experience some new work assignments, new places, new foods, and meet new friends. And to some extent, I feel secured and safe in my work place, and you may ask me why, coz of two giants guarding the building. Hehehe. Meet my new friends…

Mountain Province natives...

Teaching My Girl on Photography

While my girl and I were enjoying the cool breeze of the air outside their house, she had found an odd situation - a frog on a branch of one of their flowering plants. To our delight, we take pictures of it.

With this shot that she made, I taught her how to use the macro functionality of her camera.

After setting her camera, she has captured a seemingly perfect shot.

Next time, I should probably teach her about "angles".

Are We Prepared?

The wrath brought by Typhoon Ondoy last 2009 is still fresh in my memory. Although I am already used to a number of flood that come in our town, Typhoon Ondoy is way different. It is the worst I had ever witnessed so far.

Fearful, yet full of confidence to our Lord, best described my feelings with Typhoon Falcon. My family is that responsive enough to take care of our belongings and be prepared once the water level becomes high. With our Lord's grace, the water just rises up to around 4 inches inside our house. The following day, the water already subsided despite continuous rain shower.

It makes me wonder, "Are We Prepared?" Whenever I hear or read news regarding earthquake, typhoon (recently in Davao), among others, I got no resort but to call on God. But of course, we all should do our part, we all should be prepared.

I have heard about this Rescue72 and is interested with it. Basically, it is a disaster preparedness kit that will help you survive for 72 hours until a rescue comes over. But of course a lot of factors need to be considered. What matters is, you had been prepared.

There's a lot of things I still need to know about this kit, so I registered my self at http://rescue72.com/ to have myself posted. You may do the same and be knowledgeable about this disaster preparedness kit.
