RED GUMAMELA FLOWER

Gumamela Flowers are popularly called as “Island Flowers”. Gumamelas vary in colors and shapes and this is ordinary and familiar flower here in thePhilippines.  It is a favorite ornamental plant in many Filipino gardens. They have different colors such as pink, light green, orange, yellow and red.

 When I went to Liliw Laguna, I saw red big gumamela flower beside the Church of Liliw Laguna. I really amazed the color and size, because almost gumamela flower have a different size, small or medium size.  But this red gumamela is stunning and the color is extremely red  then I take a photo of this flower.

Liliw Laguna is known as the famous for being the footwear or tsinelas capital of Laguna. Liliw, Laguna is very familiar to everyone. Yesterday we go to Liliw Laguna; this is the second time to visit this place. Liliw Laguna is almost 1 ½ hours distance Lucena City to Liliw Laguna, they have three towns proper go through this place, and these are Tayabas, Quezon, Lucban, Quezon, Majayjay Laguna and Liliw Laguna. It’s almost 1 ½ hours to go to the Liliw Laguna because we pass by the short cut road, or know as zigzag road. My hubby very slow and be careful to drive this road. Yearly they celebrate the tsinelas festival.  This is the first time to see the huge sandals display, and you can see the different sandals design this place. Here are some photos I take.

Anyway, very month I will go there to buy the footwear. Because this is my sideline income I will offer or give some design to order to my friends, neighbors etc. To all my friends here if you want to experience or interested the good quality of this footwear I will give to you my fb link to choose what you want to order.

AROMA BEACH RESORT, Lucena City

          Swimming time again!!! My hubby, Vince and I wake up early in the morning to go to the Aroma Beach Resort located at Brgy. Talao-Talao, Dalahican, Lucena City.  We wake up at 5am early in the morning then were there at 5.20 am, it also 20 minutes distance from our home in Pagbilao, Quezon. Swimming time early in the morning in the sea is good for Vince because he have the  cough  and cold.

          Anyway this resort is not white sand, its ordinary resort, with ordinary cottage it makes the bamboo tree and the coconut leaves. There’s no entrance fee, but you can pay the cottage cost P75.00 or 1 ½ dollar and P 10.00 or ¼ dollar for the parking of your vehicle. If you want to go to the white sand they have a boat for rent it cost P250.00 or 6.2  dollars its almost 20 minutes from the cottage. This white sand is a small place and many people will go there to see the beautiful white sand.  It is the small white sand for the people who cannot afford the real white sand beach like boracay :-). About the facilities they have an ordinary comport room one for boys and one for girls. And if you want to rent the flotation device or  timbulan is also available it cost P 25.00 or almost ½ dollar for the whole day. I forgot to bring my camera; I post this photo last year because there’s no changes the place :-).

35TH ANNIVERSARY DELTA KAPPA RHO

          Delta Kappa Rho is the one accredited organization in our Schoolof Manuel S. Enverga University Foundation, Site, LucenaCity. It’s founded in year 1977. Last April 9, 2012 we celebrate the 35th anniversary of Delta Kappa Rho Fraternity/Sorority, with the theme of Looking Back…. Reviving the Deltan Spirit, located at Cusina ni Tita Norma Trinidad St. cor. Hermana Fausta St. Lucena City. This place has the owner of one my co-alumni deltans. This 35th Anniversary Delta Kappa Rho is extremely blissful; our alumni are very welcome at all our events. We recall the happy past we had and just be there and have fun with all my co alumni deltans.

           I know that all of the people are familiar for this kind of organization. This organization is not all for hazing session it‘s a kind of fraternity who’s membership in fraternities and sororities offers students many opportunities to develop their leadership potential  on the campus in the development of men and women’s values, leadership, relationship, and citizenship.  Delta Kappa Rho is much more than an organization but its camaraderie.  For me DKR is a way of life.

          Simple ride jump in SM Lucena City is the number one fun or amusing for the kids.  Everytime that we go to SM, Vince really enjoyed watching the simple ride jump, he likes to play but he is very young that time. In a few months when Vince and I went to SM together with my hubby, Vince really enjoys to watch balloon this is the additional amusing for the kids and very entertaining. Then I let Vince to play the simple ride-jump but he needs my hubby to take care of him. The entrance is very expensive for me :-), for the 20 minutes is cost Php 60.00, 1 hour is cost Php 100.00 and the unlimited hours is cost Php 200.00. Then I have chosen to be 20 minutes only.  My hubby and Vince were really enjoyed to play :-), and the 20 minutes is short for the playing of Vince. I say that we are in this place again. And I am glad to say that he did to understand for me :-).

Halo-Halo

          Today is summer season and the favorite way to beat the people this summer heat, is one big serving of Halo-halo. Halo-halo is known as a Filipino dessert or snack and it is quite easy to prepare as most of its ingredients are readily available. It is usually a mixture of sweet preserved like beans, macapuno or coconut milk, jackfruit pinipig, sweet yam ube, leche flan, shreds of sweetened plantain or saba, filled with crushed ice, evaporated milk and topped with ice cream It is a traditional Filipino summer treat in the Philippines.

          If you will go somewhere you’ll find a Halo-Halo, because halo-halo is very popular during summer time. You will see Halo-Halo in the street/in store, in the restaurant but they have different ingredients as you can see the regular and special Halo-Halo or you can make it easy to do it your own Halo-Halo. Today I eat two times halo-halo, I buy to my neighbor it cost P15.00 or less than $.5.  They have a simple recipe but having a strong smell and the sweetened is exactly to the taste. They have a simple mixture of preserved, like beans, sweet banana, pinipig, gelatin, mongo, ube and of course the evaporated milk. My hubby and I are the number one regular customer in my neighbor. He asks me it is a simple Halo-Halo, but it’s creamy and the sweetness is exactly to the taste.

Gift Ideas For Wedding

Today I went to the mall together with my hubby to find great gift idea for the wedding of my cousin. The bride and groom (my cousin) invited us to their wedding located at Santa Rosa Laguna. The distance between Lucena to Santa Rosa Laguna it’s almost four hours, It’s 68 kilometres (42.2 miles) from there.

For me it’s time to find the gift because tomorrow March 24, 2012 was the wedding day celebration of the two couple. Anyway about the gift, I have no any idea what kind of gift to buy for the groom and bride. There are many choices of gifts that won’t be seen in the mall. My first idea is the personalized gift; like towel seat with their initials embroidered on it, personalized wine glasses, decorative soap for their bathroom. But according to my hubby he suggest me appliances, I think this is the best gift ideas for wedding. Here are some charming wedding gift ideas that even you’d want for …like clocks, electric fans, oven toaster, rice cooker and such are also nifty gifts for the couple. My final choice is electric fan because it’s a necessity and it’s summer  time today.
