We must KNOW our bodies

It is very important, not only  to eat the right kind of foods, but to drink PLENTY of liquids.

ImageWe need to know what foods are good for us and what foods can harm our bodies.

ImageThe EXPERTS in nutrition say that we should drink 2.5-3 LITERS of FLUIDS per day in order to maintain a healthy body.

Pusong bato – Ian Co.

Pusong Bato is one of the most famous   songs that is sung in Videoke  bars in the Philippines. It is always better to practice it first before attempting to sing it at the videoke bar!

This is where all the tourists go to sing their favorite songs

My Impressions of the Philippines

My Impressions of the Philippines

Image

During my seven month stay in the Philippines from late May 2012 until early December 2012 I was able to accomplish much of what I set out do to.  There was simply not enough time and money to do everything that I wanted to do.

Image

I stayed in Manila for a little over 2 months and in the Cagayan valley for almost 5 months on 2 separate occasions.

Image

I wanted to see more of Ilocos Norte and the beaches on the northern coast. I wanted to see Santa Ana and the small islands off the northern coast.

Image

I will plan ahead so that during my next trip to the Philippines I will take ample time to visit all the places that I want to see. I am looking forward to returning to the land that I consider my second home……The Philippines!    

SM City Tuguegarao

ImageSomeday, in the future, there will be an SM City Tuguegarao. I understand that plans are in the works, as we speak. The picture above shows an artists impression how SM City Tuguegarao will look when it is completed.   I have visited many SM City malls in Metro Manila area and they are always fun to shop at……..but this will be my first opportunity to visit a new SM City Mall in the Cagayan Valley!  Looking forward to shopping there when it is completed.

haste makes waste

ImageTip of the day: Haste makes waste

Perhaps you’ve also heard the little gem “If you don’t have time to do it right then don’t do it at all”

Image

In our modern world there is a tendency to do things deliberately as if in a great rush as if there were little time left to do it the right way.  Let’s all SLOW DOWN and get things done the RIGHT WAY by doing them once…not by being in a rush and doing a SECOND RATE JOB .

ImagePlease…..Let’s take our time in our jobs and projects and with patience, understanding and consideration we can get the job done right the first time!

the Cagayan Valley rice crop

the Cagayan Valley rice crop

Image

In the summer you can see rice as far as the eye can see in the Cagayan Valley.  It must surely be the Cagayan Valley’s number one exported crop.

Image

All the rice fields make  the Cagayan Valley look so green!

Image

The rice grows very well in the northern Philippines thanks to all the ample rainfall!

 The kuliglig can be seen transporting the bags of rice with the workers during the harvesting season!

Revisiting Manila

Revisiting Manila

Image

 Even though I am back in the states now, I am always looking at the photos that I took in Manila and only dreaming that sometime within the next two years I will be able to return.

Image

The photos above were taken from my hotel room in Ermita. A few blocks from Roxas Blvd and a few blocks from Makati.

Image

One of the things that I would do different next time is to rely less on TAXi’s as they can be very expensive on ones budget.  Next time I will rely more on Public Transportation. The Jeepneys and the Elevated Train System.

Image

My next trip I will bring a TABLET PC with me so I can blog everyday while I am there!
