Vigan Ilocos Norte

This is a part of our short vacation in Ilocos Norte last holey week 2016. My family was eaten dinner at Vigan Crisologo St. in Ilocos Norte. We tried to taste the food specialty there like bagnet and longanisa. Anyhow Vigan is the most popular and class City in the province of Ilocos in the Philippines. Vigan Ilocos Norte is known the New 7 Wonders Foundation president and founding member Bernard Weber led a ceremony held at St. Paul Cathedral where he handed a bronze plaque to Vigan Mayor Eva Grace Singson-Medina, signifying the heritage city’s election as one of the world’s wonder cities.

Anyhow, we really enjoy during short vacation there, we visit the Baluarte which is attraction in Vigan, it offers a mini zoo, resort complex that lies in hectares of land, and a butterfly farm.  Chavit’s home in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, is one of the top tourist destinations in Ilocos Sur. It stands on a hill and provides an awesome panoramic view of the city. The Baluarte is approximately 20 hectares with a mini zoo, shooting range, and a chapel, among others. Access to the mini zoo, where Chavit’s numerous pets can be found is free for everyone, as the respectable gentleman considers this as a gift to the people.

Another beautiful tourist spot that we visited is bell tower. It is called the Bantay Belfry because it is located in the Bantay district of Vigan. According to my research the historians Galende and Javellana the builders feared that the enormous belltower, which doubled as an observation tower, would squash the church in the event it collapse during an earthquake. So they built it away from the main building. Compared to the customary church towers built (usually attached to the main building) during that same century, these towers in Ilocos are distinct because they were designed to perform multiple functions. From this belltower one could see a fantastic view of the town, including Vigan, the vast western seas and the mountains in the east.

Cozy winters

Every winter here and every parts of the world people are wearing different kinds of winter clothing, like jackets, pajamas, bonnet cap and etc. to prevent the cold weather condition. We go outside and look for any store to find comfort winter clothing but today it’s very easy to find and look the said clothes. Here are the online stores to get easy to shop and buy the different kinds of products. Aside from the winter clothing here are the Cozy Winters to comfort your body with a quality heated products to warm your life. Most products are in stock on sale and you get a coupon to get a good price to buy the product you need.

Kitchen Cabinet

Kitchen cabinet is one of the most important in our kitchen area just because cabinets are the focal point of a kitchen. There are lots of different design and materials using to make the kitchen cabinet.

I Love Tayabas

This is my late post. Tayabas, Quezon Province is my hometown.  Tayabas is known for lambanog (coconut arrack) and sweet food/delicacies, as well as tourism resorts. Tayabas is also known as the City of Festivals because of its colorful festivals. The city is famous for resorts, heritage houses, historical landmarks, rest and recreation destination and festivities. It is the former capital of the Province of Tayabas, now Aurora and Quezon. Today, I leave in Pagbilao, Quezon its 40 minutes away from Tayabas Quezon. I already visit there last February which is the Valentines Day. I really amazed the beautiful new Tayabas town. Before we go, I surely took a photo of the beautiful decorations in Tayabas.

8 Hot Fashion Trends for 2016

From the runways of Paris to the boardwalks of New York, the fashion world is having a very exciting year. Here are just eight of the trends you won’t want to miss in 2016.

1. Patchwork

Last year was the year of plaid, but this year the favored pattern seems to be patchwork. The most popular colors are definitely black and white, but reds, greens and golds have been spotted too.

2. Ruffles

Could this be the start of a ’90s resurgence? Fashion experts certainly seem to think so; they’ve been hailing the return of the ruffle as a nostalgic throwback to an era before smartphones. It remains to be seen if ruffles will actually last, however.

3. Metallics

Metallics have been trendy for several years now with no signs of slowing down. Whether it’s gold bling around the neck or shimmering silver on a futuristic tee, you can’t go wrong with bright, shiny colors.

4. Cultural Appreciation

If you’re from Japan, wear a kimono. If you’re from India, decorate your skin with mehandi design. 2016 is the year of “ethnic chic,” so wear your heritage proudly. You can find fun exotic pieces in stores around the globe, or you can make your own cultural tokens with help from places like Craftsvilla.

5. Slips

Slip dresses have been making appearances everywhere from Celine to Saint Laurent, so it’s safe to say they’re definitely back in style. As a bonus, this ultra-convenient cut is great for women on the go.

6. Tiaras

If you enjoy feeling like royalty, this trend is sure to make you smile. Tiaras have become a fashionable hair accessory seen on models around the world. It doesn’t matter what color, shape or size they are; tiaras as a whole as in.

7. Long Earrings

Put away your studded pearls; these days it’s all about the long, dangling earrings. Pair them with slinky dresses for an edgy look or flowing skirts for an elegant, after-dinner feel.

8. Natural Makeup

Natural makeup is all the rage on catwalks lately; it’s actually more shocking to see someone in the bright red lipstick that used to be ubiquitous with fashion shows. Why is natural makeup suddenly popular? Only time will tell.

The world of fashion is ever-changing, but with these eight trends, you can stay ahead of the curve. Just remember to have fun! Fashion is supposed to be a joyous thing!

Kung Hei Fat Choi

This is late post; I want to post my nephew Vince, the photo taken last year in SM Lucena. I remember my nephew Vince and I missed him so much, almost 4 years that I cared for him. After how many years I returned him to my sister which is the mother of Vince.  Every time that I remember him I already opened my album in facebook account to see him.

Jewelry Store

Jewelry is a kind of investment that I really love to collect. For me it is a small things decorative worn for personal adornment.  I really quickly to attract the jewelry store even in mall or any pawnshop store. Anyway there’s a lot of online store today just because it’s easy to shopping.  Like www.joyjewelers.com/modules/mothers there’s a lot of jewelry design and color you can choose it. Because the Valentine’s Day is coming you can easy to choose the different kind of ring and necklace to give your love ones as your valentine’s gift. Aside from gifts for Valentines Day, you can give it for any occasion like personalized, for wedding, for your collection and many more. The said jewelry store is a wide and I think you do not look for another jewelry store because the said online store is a perfect and complete for your need. Aside from that the price is affordable.

Happy Valentines

Happy valentines to all you guys. Valentines Days is fast approaching, this coming 14th day of February is celebrates the hearts day or the day of romance.  It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it is not a public holiday in most of them. Based on my research Valentine’s Day is a symbols that are used today include the heart shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass produced greeting cards. Anyhow, Valentines Day costumes developed in early modern England and spread through the Anglosphere in the 19th century. In the later 20th and early 21st centuries, these customs spread to other countries, but their effects has been more limited that those of Halloween or than aspects of Christmas, such as Santa Claus. Due to a concentrated marketing effort, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in some East Asian counties with Chinese and South Koreans spending the most money on Valentines gifts.

The photo below is my friend Jessica and I; she visited to me last Feb. 1, 2016 in my house. We already missed to each other because it’s almost 3 years to meet each other again. She lives at 11am in Manila so she traveled for almost 5 hours including traffic, she came here at 4pm in Pagbilao, province of Quezon. Because the Valentine is coming, we already drank 2 bottle of red horse. Off course we don’t’ forget to take a photo. I want to say thank you Jessica for visiting me. Until next time 🙂 .
