โ€˜Sweetest Thingโ€™

The sweetest thing I heard today was when Pops said, “I am happy that you’re happy.”, randomly, at suppertime.

He looked me straight in the eye and smiled.

“Thank you, Papa.” Then, I was dazed to discover how my father could fathom the real feeling I have inside.

One Sunny Afternoon

I was holding a pair of crinkled hands – they were white. These exquisite bougainvilleas were pale in comparison to the beauty that these hands witnessed for almost a decade.

“Why are you holding me all the time?”, she asked.

“‘Cause I don’t want to let you fall, Gran.” I answered.

Summer Fun at Pangasinan XPo Part Iโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ

Hello there! It’s official: summer in PH is here! And when the heat is blazing, you know what it means, too: the Province of Pangasinan has to celebrate the annual Pista’y Dayat (Feast of the Sea). Ha-Ha! Pardon me for my translation.

Pangasinan Tourism and Trade Expo is a part of the annual Pista’y Dayat celebration, situated near beachfront, Lingayen, Pangasinan – the capital of the province.

Colorful food carts and landscape entries align the hallways; banners and light bulbs complement the theme; and bougainvilleas in mixed tones complete this set.

If you are looking for a copacetic place to dine in or just stop-by, consider ‘Pangasinan Expo’ as one of your choices. You can find lots of mementos here, I am telling you.

Anyway, I’ll be posting the second set of photos on my next blog. Stay posted! ๐ŸŒˆ

Thanks for dropping by!

Meet me here in Seoul, S.K. ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท

I wasn’t joking when I said, “Meet me here in Seoul.” This is part of the reality located in the province of Pangasinan.

“Paskuan ed Kapitolyo” under the present administration made this possible: every office was tasked to put on decorations reflective of the assigned country to it.

Here, Kalantiao Building was to portray South Korea.

And so, here it was.

I hope I could show to you the rest of the other nations so we could all travel across the globe this yuletide season.

Why Not?

You dream of becoming an astronaut? ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿš€Go, because WHY NOT? You want to be a lawyer? ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš–๏ธGo, because WHY NOT? You want to be a public servant? ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐ŸปGo, because WHY NOT?
Let us not be defined by how people see us. After all, their vision and opinion would not matter when we go around flying with zero gravity, defend a thousand people with ease, and serve our hometown 24/7. Nothing we do is ever useless for the Lord! (1 Corinthians 15:58).

Filmborn: Kodak P800 / Kiwi

ย Kodak P800.

After my Saturday classes, I was tasked to buy Fuji apples. Somehow, along the lane of fruits, kiwi stole my attention. I don’t pay much regards to this fruit which has more vitamin C than orange, until we complied with the New Year custom – complete all the 13 round fruits on the table.

Little did I know, we used to ignore it. For who’d realize it’s a kiwi? Truth be told, I know how kiwi looks, but with the bare fruit itself, I have no idea.

Anyway, to stop beating around the bush, I included kiwi in my shopping list. And ta-dah! It tastes better than it looks.

P.S. I am looking forward to shooting more of film photography. How cool is that? ๐Ÿ˜„

Don’t MESH with us!

Long gone is the norm that elder siblings are in charge of expenses. Nowadays, age is just a number. The gift of giving belongs to anyone.

What happens when a sibling passes a national exam?

Mesh room is a resto-cafe along Tapuac road, Dagupan City, Pangasinan. Since it is located along the highway, you can perfectly pull off from a long drive to catch up few breaths, sip a drink of your choice, and munch on the perfect combo of side-dishes or desserts.

Anyway, this is (again) my sister, picking our orders. It’s her treat so she gotta choose everything to celebrate her passing the exam! ๐Ÿ˜€

From the word “mesh” itself, it’s a snug place with mesh around.

Processed with VSCO with a10 presetOf course, please don’t MESH with us! :p

I brought along two novels for the two of us. ‘Heard you’d have to tag along and stay for a while due to the large amount of their servings. There are times when good novels are all that you need. BTW, this one by Claudia Gray would take you to different dimensions, you have to be conscious all throughout your journey.First batch of our orders: S’MORES. You can have this at PHP 115.00. Price ain’t so bad, eh?Then, again, it’s my first time to drown myself with an overload of this goodie! Thank you, Sissy!CHICKEN SKIN at PHP 50.00. This would the perfect partner for ice-cold drinks. However, we decided not to order a drink anymore since we are taking digestion, slowly and surely. Perhaps, plain water would suffice.Call me a snob, but you should always include FRIES in our bucket list. You can have this at PHP 70.00. Guilty as charged, fries are among my favorite food! Their fries come in plain, potein, etc. TACOS. I already forgot how much these cost. But you should try them, too! There are variety of choices from beef to chicken, etc.Flat-lay version of our meal. Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰Leftovers. I always feel bad when there are leftovers so I try my best to consume them all. Her novel. Bow.Set of decors that you can purchase from the cafe. Let the photo shoot begin!

Thanks for dropping by! I’m looking forward to more time of blogging. Thank you, too, Sissy! Congratulations! ๐Ÿ™‚
