Beautiful Life in the Philippines in These Times of Pandemic

Life is beautiful if you will find ways to make it beautiful... This is what I learned from life experiences here in the planet. As the line from the poem Invictus states: I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. We are responsible for our happiness, at least in a world where everyone has freedom. Now, as to what happiness would mean to you, it something you must know. But defining happiness should not be complicated. Perhaps, this blog post can explain...  Cows Freely Eating Grasses in a Green Field A Lady Witnessing the Rising of the Sun Morning Sun as it Climbs Up to Start the Day We all experienced the horrible impact of pandemic over the past two years, and yet we still feel the difficulties and challenges up to this very moment coping up with the so-called "new normal". Maybe its already too much to say what this COVID-19 virus bring us...that's enough! An inspiration may cure our broken hearts and souls. This is the best way to calm us down, make us

Sonya's Garden: A Walk with Nature, a Great Day to Celebrate

It was a fine Friday morning when me and my wife decided to hit the gas handle heading to a secluded place in Alfornso, Cavite - at Sonya's Garden. A 40-minute motorcycle drive then take us to this beautiful nature place recommended to people searching of inner peace, calmness and serenity. Sonya's Garden We then find ourselves surrounded by colorful flower, green leaves of different varieties, rustic gardens, and fresh air blowing here and there. Time to Celebrate! At Sonya's Garden Bread and Breakfast is where we spend our 11th Year Wedding Anniversary. With my wife's enthusiasm to be in this nature's place, what we experience is enjoyment, true couple's bonding, and best of all a memorable anniversary dining at Sonya's Conservatory. Have a look on what we discovered here. Oogoo Who greet us upon our arrival at Sonya's is this cute dog named Oogoo. The blonde golden retriever is known to welcoming guests at the place, though not all experience the humb

Vlog: Batangas Lomi and More - Our Amazing Filipino Foods Encounters

Tayo mag-lomi!!! Sino gang sasama? This is the typical line you will hear from a Batangueno or local of the Batangas province. Why? Because in this place is where lomi is born and for that reason alone, lomi is the food almost everybody wants. Don't believe it? Well, you better be. In this vlog, my my wife and I go places just to get a taste of this lomi. Specifically, we ordered lomi from several restaurants in Batangas and Cavite. We tasted it, commented on it, and there you go, a vlog that speaks the truth about Batangas lomi or simply "lomi". Yes, lomi has undergone innovations over the past years. Lomi is now more decorative, with toppings almost filling half of the bowl. The tasty lomi is a must-try for you, for everyone who wants something different, something special. And of course, the authentic "Mga Pagkaing Pinoy. These foods will always be there, in every resto or canteen you will dine it. We always love to order kaldereta, pancit, lechon, dinuguan and si

Vlog: Tree Planting in Our Mini-farm "JN FarmGarden" in Batangas, Philippines

Hello mga ka-Pinas! Here is my first vlog which I am excited to share here in Project Pilipinas. In this vlog, me and my wife are planting together in our mini farm garden. It was a great day, with the weather in our side, a little bit cloudy and the soil wet due to an early day rain, we managed to plant about ten plants that day. It was exhausting to be honest. I mean like you start from soil digging, planting, and then putting fences on each plant - that's a whole lot of effort. But despite all the hard work, I think I could also say that the activity is very fulfilling. We are happy and tired at the same time. Well, here is that one-big-day planting for the economy activity. Hope you will enjoy, learn and share it. So yes, as a start, we have the lemon, avocado, rambutan, dates and African tulip trees now living in our farm garden. Yehey! And of course, here are more photos to complete everything about our tree planting activity at "JN FarmGarden". Yes, "JN FarmGa
