When people decide to leave the comforts of their home and venture to other locations there is usually a reason behind it, or it is already a norm in the house that they have a yearly or twice of vacation a year. Whether the cause to travel was a last minute whimsy or had an actual purpose, it makes one think about all of the reasons why people travel, talking about the first reason I just gave. For everyday life in the work office or in any institution you’ve been working or at home, we cannot avoid that we can encounter stress. To relieve from that stress we need to give some rewards for ourselves. Traveling is one way to relieve stress and aside from that you can also explore new things and new places. I just can remember a while back during my college days. I used to ride a bus and sit near the window once stress came in. With it, I can see the beauty of nature in different places and just came back to my place. Ah, it's great to reminisce those days. Having loads of assignments and projects to finish and alikes. Just missing it now, though. :-))

Alright, you will also gain new experience that will become one of your treasures. Overall, traveling journey can be a wonderful experience or it can be draining, expensive and just plain torture. Nonetheless, if you need to go, then embrace it for what it is, and try to make the best of it even if it wasn't planned. Every time we travel we get to know a lot of things and being knowledgeable after exploring new things and places especially the usual way of fun when we go to our relatives and friends that live a hundred miles away. Such a good step of stressing-out those stuffs in our mind. What do you think? Have a great vacation! :-))

For 15 days from flight going and back including, I managed to enjoy every minute of my vacation there in my birth country, Philippines. Though there are some that I was not able to do and meet (sorry to those folks), still it was fun and full of life relaxation away from the house. Oops, I did not mean I do not like staying our rented-apartment abode with my DH but sometimes times like this is needed. I was not able to update much while I was there and even haven't contacted much my husband (blessed to have an understanding and thoughtful husband) due to Internet connection. I was using globe tattoo USB connection to satellite but not so sure if it was the problem or the location. Most of the time, it was slow as in s-l-o-w. But then as I said, I was having fun. Pictures coming soon. ;-)

For now, I will share to you my ever want  most craved roasted pig (lechon/litson in Philippine language which it is one of the famous foods in there) fresh from where it was cooked with my paternal family (minus one) father,  stepmom and step siblings (minus one) .

father, brother Dong, youngest sis Lovely, step mom, me and brother Ling

Have a great day! Enjoy the coming weekend!

Ha ha ha! That is always what one should have to say, well, an optimistic way. What else? ;-)

I actually was at home about four days ago. Jetlag galore, monthly sickness (menstruation, you know..), some sleeping chores as I was exhausted, tired and feeling still in clouds. Ha ha ha! Ooh well, two weeks is just a little time but it is enough to those who are contented and include me to that. I wanted to extend but I know I cannot have everything. The catch is I have the major ones, yey! Speaking of contentment, what more could I ask for? Nothing. Just understanding and appreciation. Nothing more, nothing less. Nyahehe!

I would also like to thank my dear husband for granting me to go alone [oops, he said that would be the last trip of being just me, meaning he will be with me next time or we will be at home together. :-D And that is not bad.]

My mareng Lulu also is one of the few who "save me by the bell", some online chores. Thanks mareng! Your argentina and piniato is on its way (tomorrow).. hehe.. muahhh! To you my folks, friends, ladies and gentlemen. Thanks a lot for remembering me and still be her. A lot of kisses. ~muahhh~ {just being grateful}

The date is December 3rd here in Philippines. I am (with my biological father, aunt Tata, Nang Linda (a Tabamo relative of great grandparents and aunt Tata buddy in her house} and my youngest sibling Lovely) here now in Tagbilaran, Bohol particularly in Dao Diamond Bed and Breakfast Hotel near in Island City Mall (ICM). I managed to do a little write-up (but I guess I can publish this as I am there in US already, just so you know) as this hotel has a free WI-FI. I am here together with my family just for a short tour, two days and one night though only a day for a regular tour as this afternoon we are just here in hotel, well as of this time. No definite plan yet if we will go jamming in one of Panglao white beach resort or go swimming and wrap-up for a definite plan together with the thought of Wena, my contact here in this hotel. She knows and help me some itinerary plan. Well, that is her job but still am thankful. :-) It is up to me then with the rest of my extended immediate family of the decision. Okay, basically the shoulder is upon me, as I am their sponsor. Hehe! And I am happy to treat them as I am also enjoying. Thankful for my husband too. I used to think to stay in Bohol Agricultural Center dorms since it is inexpensive but to my awe, to no avail as they won't accept without reservation. Well, I am overloaded with thoughts as I forgot to reserve it whilst I was in Gingoog or Camiguin as Internet connection of Globe Tattoo of my computer (or location) did not sound so good. Thankfully the connection here is great. Then I came here in this hotel without reservation too but we (Wena and I) had  a lot of email conversations already, thankfully their room is ready. She suggested the family room is great than getting their dormitory. This room has a nice ambiance. Many spaces and a big area for accommodation. 

(And above paragraph ended but not yet published due to some reason (well, for editing and others) and now it is done but the date remain the first date it was written.) 

By the way, after such conversation to the front desk and all, we managed to go to ICM to buy supposedly ferry tickets for tomorrow's travel to CDOC but to no avail, we got it at the on-set before heading to the ferry. Then had our dinner and some sight-seeing at the mall. After that, Lovely and I went swimming at the hotel with aunt Tata and Nang Linda on the table. Father didn't went swimming too, was at our room, watching TV for his comfort getting ready for our tour at 6:45 a.m. the following day as at 4pm we'll be on the ferry bound to CDOC. That is all for now. :)

I remember I saw a slogan in Benoni Seaport of Camiguin before, as it says "Camiguin, Come Again". And now it definitely shows how I feel. The biggest reason is I grew up here, most of my folks live here. So there is no way that I wouldn't miss this beautiful Island of Camiguin, Born of Fire.I am in second day now. It is morning here and by the way, the date and time of my computer has been adapted here too. Later, I (together with my sister and a cousin) will be going to Magting to go swimming at the seawater and visit some maternal relatives too. And ooh we will be eating roasted pig ("lechon") too! I will have to buy ingredients for young coconut later along with two big cans of fruit cocktail for a salad. I already called them to start to cook already so it is then ready to eat. You know. I have to go now. Ciao..

I am just sharing one of my favorite dish which was prepared during my thanksgiving celebration  four days ago. Yes, I celebrated thanks giving here same as thanksgiving date in USA. I never thought it is of exact day, I did not even plan it as thanksgiving but the thought is really is. Well, but not until I have seen a neighbor in Gingoog City commented in the Facebook wall of my sister that I celebrated the occasion here in Philippines particularly in Gingoog City, at my extended immediate family, father's place. 

blue marlin serviche ("kinilaw malasugi")

An image above is what the title is. The picture may not that good but the taste and actuality is. No other picture I got so to give a hint, this is it. :-) Yes, that is one of my favorite dish. My father and brother made that. If am not mistaken blue marlin or "malasugi" fish is the best one when it comes to that dish. Then rice and soft-drink after wards. Yummy! For sure, my Philippine vacation is not complete without this. I bet women and men loves this.

What do you think? Are you fond of ceviche? How do you like it?

November 29, 2010

To which I considered an extended immediate family. Just so you know, I am here in Gingoog City, Philippines. Right from stepping upon the airport of Cagayan de Oro City, we are already complete (minus one of them, Jhoyce and if it is counted another minus one who is my brother, we're both the same illegitimate from my father's bachelor days who is Eric, he is older than I. Well, he also has his family already and seems like we have been disconnected for how many years. He may like to focus on his family already, I guess. We do not live together so there is less sibling affection. Even so, he is nice to me. It is just that it is just the way the situation and we can do nothing about it but have to go on with our lives.) since I asked them (the two guys who are studying in CDOC to come and be with us, by the way my stepmom and father managed to fetch me at the airport. It's just the youngest sibling did not, since it is better for her to use his last day for work (which fortunately she managed to have a leave, she works in jollibee, just to be with our bonding. Well, we plan it first before the 25th of November, and it is fine with her. Thank you Lab! 0_o) after that day, then back the day after I will be going to go back to US. And so the bonding continues. :) We'll be going to Bohol to have a tour on the 3rd of December after visiting Camiguin then after Bohol, it will be CDOC visit and a semi-reunion with paternal relatives. I will be treating them with the help of my DH though the two school boys cannot come to Camiguin and Bohol due to its schooldays and I understand.

It would be awesome to have a vacation outside the country, but not on a thought of underestimating the beauty of our own. Yes, mostly, folks wanted to go outside the country when speaking of a vacation. Thinking about USA's very own Branson in Missouri which offers a great Branson vacation packages to which it maybe made you think, it is indeed a great deal, should you like to know and see for yourself, I suppose. Why not? Escape the city's hustle bustle and get to the top of the woods, yes mountain! And, why not?! ;-)

Honestly, as for myself and DH, I/we do not have any plan for this coming summer. Yep, weird you can say but it's just an ordinary season for us. Hahah! But if budget of time and money would permit me to go, I would like to spend it in a fun place like spending it in Disney World, Universal Studio, Sea World and any other great places for fun. Since I am in Los Angeles or California, am I near to that places but it also great to spend it in other state like Florida. Orlando has it like California and for sure if you are in that place, you would like to go and enjoy your summer fun, won't you? You would want to grab the great deals like Orlando vacation packages with family and friends for the famous summer escapades that is going to happen very soon. You guys would surely have fun because you are well-surrounded with your close folks.. have a great one then.. have a great moment! :)

People often find a place to have a vacation either in local or around the world destination. Popular places of destination tourists/vacationists often go are usually in beaches, lakes, mountainous areas, golf and ski vacation areas. With that, folks tend to find a good comfortable temporary abode to relax to which mostly stay in hotels or vacation rental homes. Vacation rental homes are in a form of houses, apartments, condos, cabins, cottages, farmhouses, villas, town homes and mansions that are fully furnished and ready to be occupied by short-time renters. It is somewhat similar to hotels yet it is spacious and less costly than hotels so more likely folks want to get vacation rental homes if they like to save money and want a spacious temporary home. Vacationists have choices by the way of what particular place they want to stay through vacation rentals services. Looking back to the newly commercial, below is its newly funny one.
