A Pop Day

 My nephew and niece posing for me while enjoying their dose of lollipop (Baby pop as my nephew calls it). Kids just have simple joys in life. :)

My nephew "DJ" enjoys watching the Back to You MTV of Luigi D'Avola. He can't stop laughing at the scene when Luigi and his friends would use a beard prop. Whoala! Made a beard from a sticker and DJ gamely posed for the camera.

Bringing Hope to Kids of Dapitan

At 5 AM in the morning, kids from Sitio Bacong, Taguilon, Dapitan City would start preparing to go to school at Dapitan City National High School - Talisay Extenstion. They have to start early because they would have to ride a bangka (a small boat) to cross the other island and then walk 2 to 3 hours to go to school. This would be the daily routine of the students in order for them to get education.



To ease the difficulty of students in going to school, DMC College Foundation, Inc. is currently coordinating with the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation to provide these kids with a boat to ferry them to school. If they would have a regular boat service for them, they will be able to go to school at only around 10 - 15 minutes.

So far, Mr. Jay Jaboneta the founder of Yellow Boat of Hope has already expressed interest in helping this kids. I am hoping that this will push through as the help would greatly impact the lives of the kids.

2013: A Year that Was


2013 had gone too fast. I remember starting the year feeling lost and now I'm ending it with sort of a happy note. The year was not all good to me, but at least I was able to accomplish a lot beyond what I have expected.

In retrospect, here are the things I accomplished/ experienced in 2013.

2014 Philippine Nationwide Holidays

Tangub City goes International

Tangub

2013 has been very devastating for the Philippines for the different calamities experience. However, the Filipino spirit is strong and life goes on. But we all know that Christmas season is very important for us Filipinos. It is the time of the year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. And Filipinos take celebration to the extreme.

In Tangub City - the Christmas Symbols Capital of the Philippines, the Local Government turned their plaza into a showcase of landmarks of the different countries of the world while incorporating lights show and eco-friendly materials.

As visitors see the amazing displays, they tend to find hope to continue to aspire for the best for the Philippines.
---------------------
I was fortunate to be invited by a friend to go with them and visit Tangub City this December. At first I was hesitant because its around 4 hours drive from Dapitan City. But then I obliged to go with them.

When we arrived at the boundary of Tangub City, we were greeted by the amazing lighted arch. It got by spirit excited and hoping to see more. And indeed, Tangub did not fail me. The different booths are a work of art. The whole plaza took me to a tour around the world.

Here are some of the pictures that we took during our trip to Tangub. Enjoy! Merry Christmas!

Rizal Day Celebration

"I die without seeing the dawn brighten over my native land. You who have it to see, welcome it and forget not those who have fallen during the night!" - Jose Rizal

Happy Rizal Day!

Today, we commemorate the death of our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. His death ignited the revolution against the tyranny of the Spaniards over the Philippines. Hopefully, Filipinos nowadays remember his sacrifice and would have the same passion and love of country as he is.

The picture above was taken in Dapitan City, Philippines. A landmark showing the arrival of Rizal in Dapitan for his exile in Dapitan.
