Crazy Love by: Kim Chiu (video)

I love this song so I decided to make a video using movie maker. I made this last year 2007. Enjoy viewing =)


It rains cats and dogs right now which I love it for some reason. Some people hates when it rain but some do likes it. I love it because it makes the weather cool, makes the air clean, my flowers in the garden will bloom nicely, I’m having a good deep sleep during night time and its not dusty.

I remembered when I was a child everytime it rained I used to go out with or without my parents knowing because they afraid that I will get sick. I enjoy playing outside with other neighbors like running and a lot more. Rain before is so clean. I remembered when my grandmother told me that her mother prepared couple of pail and save the rain water. When her mother took a bath, she used the rain water. Her mother skin is glowing and moisturized. But now a days I don’t think we can do that because what we have now is acid rain which is not good for our skin due to the pollution. Maybe it’s time for us to take good care of our nature.

Have you also tried playing in the rain? Do you also love rain just like me?

My Blog

Blogging has become one of my new greatest interest/hobby for now. It has also become one of my greatest things to stress about. The original purpose of my blog was to share and exchange some ideas and release them into blogosphere. I can write anything into my blog, share some photos, videos, travel, experiences, interest and a lot more. I have also other blog which all about General Santos City where I was born and raised.

But this one is my freedom blog. It was my cousin Nelson who encourage me to make blog. I'm not really a good writer but I find it very challenging on my part. It's something new to me. I'm a type of person who always seek adventure though risk is not my passion. I remembered I used to visit a blog in blogosphere specially to my former boss and other blog links. I was amazed how they do it and the article was very interesting to read. I realized why not make one of my own? Here I am now a newbie to blogosphere. Enjoy your stay and you can freely browse and leave some comments. Have a wonderful sunny day to us...

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (Review)

Very entertaining movie just like the first film, this is a grand and visually stunning epic with thrilling battle scenes and powerful themes. This one has more violence but also more humor, especially from the most welcome new character, a mouse. The pacing is strong, the effects are superb, and the battles are exciting. The themes are presented with a subtlety that encourages thoughtful consideration, with a range of possible interpretations. This is a long, intense, violent epic with the deaths of both good guys and bad guys, and it is not suitable for young children.

Visitor's Guide

I get addicted into making Blogs. I was thinking why not make one all about General Santos City. I texted my friend Dianne Acharon who works in Department of Tourism. I asked a favor from her if I can get some information all about Gensan and maybe she can give me some fliers. I was so happy because I got a response from her right away that I could come and visit her anytime. That day in the the late afternoon I went to her office. She gave me a "Visitor's Guide" , map and a lot more information. One of her colleague Jing Velos showed me some of his wonderful photographs in Gensan. I was really amazed how he captured those moments and perfectly done. His really good. He told me I can use his photographs for my Blogs. And I am happy to share it with you guys. I will start as soon as I can my Blog all about Gensan. Please be update and would be happy to hear from you. Feel free to browse anytime and leave some comments.

Tomorrow is not a PROMISED

Sometimes people come into our life and we knew right away that they were meant to be there, they have purpose to teach us some lesson, help figure out who we are and who we what we want to become.

We never know whose these people may be our neighbor, child, long lost friend, classmates or even a stranger. In that every moment that they will affect our life in some profound way.

Sometimes things happens to us which is painful and unfair. We reflect and realize that without overcoming those obstacles, we would never grow and realized our potential strength and our hearts desire . Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or good and bad luck.

If someone hurts us , betrays us or breaks our heart, forgive them. For they helped us learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom we open our hearts.

If someone loves us, love them back unconditionally not because they love us but because they are teaching us to love and opening our eyes to things that we would have never seen or felt.

Make every day of our lives special. Appreciate every moment,and take from it everything that you possibly can, for us may never be able to experience it again.

Hold your head up. Tell yourself you’re a great person and believe in yourself. .. if you don’t believe in yourself , no one else will believe in you either.

Let’s create our own life, go out from our shell and live in it. Live each day as if it is our LAST..Tomorrow is not a PROMISED...

Buffet Lunch in Davao City

Its raining cats and dogs yesterday and woke up at 5 A.M. , I love this kind of weather because I have a good deep sleep and makes the weather cool. I still want to go back to sleep but I had to take a shower because my cousin and I had to go to Davao City at 6 A.M. On our way to Davao, there is a part of an area that was foggy due to the rain. You could hardly see the road. We arrived Davao safely. Went directly to Ateneo College School . We didn't finish all our transactions that Saturday because the office opens until 12 noon. Both of us didn't took breakfast so we were starving. My cousin Toni suggested and promote that we'll have our buffet lunch in Chippens which cost P250/head only. She told me I won't regret. I wasn't convince at first because I find it a little bit expensive and I am on a tight budget. But when she told me she will pay for P100.00 and I'll pay the remaining. I Finally say "yes". When we entered the place, I find it nice and clean. The place was very cozy and absolutely scrumptious food. I ate a lot specially the kare2x, adobo and buko pandan which were my favorites. Also Check out those waiters get-up, very cool and sharp. CHIPPENS is named after the kids ( Chips, Chino Chiggy and Chikki) cute and unique names. If you want to have some buffet try to go to that place. It's located in Paseo de Roxas, Davao City. If ever I get back to Davao again, I will surely go back to that place... Wanna join with me? =)

Nature Photography

Photography is one of my interest. I used to take bunch of photos of myself in different angle. But this time I tried something new. I appreciate how other people taking such a wonderful photographs of nature. Nature Photography is a wide range of photography taken outdoors. Usually it is close-ups scene. The presence (or absence) of color is not requirement of nature photography. More black and white photos are being produced by digital.

I attach here one of my favorite captured photos which I took few weeks ago at Eden Nature Park, Davao City. I love nature, so therefore I must capture nature images and make them a work of art.

Shade trees can make individual neighborhoods and whole cities cooler. A stand of trees can create a welcoming "oasis effect". So, lets plant more trees....

The Birthday Celebrant

Happy Birthday to all June birthday celebrant. My Brother Gabriel turned 28 last 4th of June. We are so busy that day cooking some food because my brother don't want to order in catering service to save some money. The overall outcome looks like we have a catering service. From table skirting, balloons decors, table arrangements and food presentation it was perfect. Few close relatives and friends were invited. It was meaningful and blissful celebration. Thanks to Earl Mapalo a very good friend of my brother who help us to make this celebration a wonderful one without asking any return. He have a lot of talent for his own good. In fact he is our chef in the kitchen that day and who also do the table decoration. Without him , we can't make things possible. Except for the balloons which I did the job. I enjoy making balloons and this hobby of mine turned out to be my home based business. Happy birthday to the coolest guy on this planet... MY BRO!!! Wishing you all success in life, long life and bountiful blessing from our Almighty God.

Family Summer Outing at Gumasa Beach

Happy Thursday evening to all beach lovers. It was 2nd week of April we had our Family outing at Gumasa “Rosal” Beach Resort, Glan. It was fun because most of the family members were able to join. We always have a family gathering but for us to be complete only happen once in blue moon due the reason that some family member lives abroad. My Aunt Lucia ( from Switzerland), Aunt Remy ( Australia) and cousin Apple ( Holland) are having there short vacation here in Philippines with their husbands from March to April 2008. It’s been a while I haven’t seen a sunset at the beach. We really enjoyed the scenery and took a lot of photos. We even stayed overnight there. The funny thing was the room that we had for a reservation was given to someone else. It was getting dark. We didn’t want to go back home because the beach location was far from our residence. Our elders decided to enjoy our stay there. It was a new experienced for all of us because we slept on the sand but of course using the blankets. We used our bag as our pillow. Some slept in the open cottage. While we laid down on the sand, some relatives were playing board games on the white sand , nephews and nieces were busy building sand castle, my cousins (Toni and Cherrie Mae) and I had such wonderful time star gazing and having a good conversation . We saw so many falling star, it’s been a while haven’t seen those in the City. Eventhough we were very uncomfortable sleeping but that experienced is one of the best thing happened in my life.

Waking up with the waves on our second day at 5 a.m.. The water was lucid and smelled fresh air in the surroundings. Some kids jump right away into the water. Well, I'm also guilty -haha! I took breakfast at 8 a.m., Afterwards we prepared packing up our things because we must leave before lunch. On our way home, everyone was fallen asleep inside the car except for the drivers..We are all exhausted.Whew!!! We really had fun fun fun fun fun!!!!!
