Orange and Sunsets

Orange is a journey into the very minds and hearts of two individuals-both youthful, flawed, yet fundamentally sincere-and both struggling and eventually coming to terms with a world that once seem mad, despoiled and cruel....."I've got my own interpretation."  I took a cigarette from my pocket. You see before I fall inlove you like scattered leaves around the park here, worlds apart and all. And then, love happens-the whirlwind-and you were swept up from where you are. You're all caught-up in the moment, your thoughts and emotions spinning like mad! and when it ends you settle back down to the real world. After that you've got the memory of the whirlwind in your head. If you were a leaf along the sidewalk, you'll remember that "short span of time when you were, even for just a few seconds, closer to the skies.-and both Orange, a novel

National Heroes Day in the Philippines

We obtained freedom because of the martyrs who risk their precious lives for our sake. Today, the blood they shed leaves a mark as we commemorate their endeavors. On this day, we are paying our sincere gratitude to them..... it is a day worth to be celebrated. We were able to breath the fresh free air since our  birth because of their sacrifices.  My dear friends, we are the privileged ones to have been born in free Philippines.

As we celebrate the National Heroes Day raising and fluttering the Philippine flag with great pride or playing  and singing the national Anthem with fervency, we need to look back into the past to remember and pay tribute to the builders of our great nation.

We must not ignore the common people who sacrified a lot for the good cause of this country. There were peasant, land lords, farmers, businessman, artists, teachers and students who helped the land achieved the long dream of freedom.  A responsible Filipino recall the deeds of our National Heroes, we must not allow those hard times and struggles fade away from our memories.

We have come a long way  in the path of free Philippines. My question is; Have we proved ourselves worthy of freedom?

I Smell.....

Located in Eastwood City Walk. Eastwood City Walk E. Rodriguez Ave. (C-5), Bagumbayan, Libis Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

Nope its not my birthday. My office mates and I went to the resto to satisfy our stomachs with Somethin' Fishy's famous all you can eat breakfast.

 At Php 114.00, it was a great deal. They offer great-tasting food. The food were all laid out on a long table and everyone was free to get their share of food and you can still go for seconds or thirds for that matter.

Food choices include tapa, tocino,different choices of  eggs, chicken and pork adobo, bangus, palabok, garlic or plain rice, pancakes, palitaw, molo soup, arroz caldo, etc.

I am a big fan of the restaurant specially their bangus, I had 6 plates of the best tasting crispy fried bangus.

Brunch @ Max's

What would you do after a long, stressful and tiring night shift? Whats the best thing to do after you have configured $8.675 million worth of chassis, 18 RMA request, terminated 78 lines of serial numbers and services?

Your are definitely correct! Aside from a good massage or a real great rest, you need a "major, major" (borrowed it from Ms Philippines, Venus Raj) meal. Shall I say major, major eatables! and yes you do.

Today, I'm gonna treat you to Max's. Enjoy the corned beef and the Chicken flakes while reading the morning news and zipping your decaf. I liked the Chicken flakes although its not that appetizing on the picture maybe because of the egg, I want my egg well done (not what you thinking, huh!).


Laiya, Batangas - Tivona

Do you like going to the beach? Let's go to the beach!!! I already miss the sand, the sea , the shore and the snacks. Too bad, we can't go at the beach because its rainy season.  Its not really beach going weather at present time. So, let's just feel the beach from the photos taken couple of years ago in Tivona Batangas.

Its only when the weather is hot and the sun is shinning if you want to go and do some fun activities on the beach. Creating memory along with the seashore is a blast whether you are with your family, best group of friends or love ones.

I enjoy going to the beach and just sitting by the water and watch the waves. I prefer to relax and just take things as it is, bringing a sense of inner peace.

And me, I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it's not some place you can look for, 'cause it's not where you go. It's how you feel for a moment in your life when you're a part of something, and if you find that moment... it lasts forever...  --"The Beach."
