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!

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

What a Year 2020 for the Filipinos!

 2020 - Oh what a year! We pronounce it "Twenty-Twenty". On a side note, the ophthalmologist will always want us to have the 20-20 vision. This year was supposedly the 2020 Olympics to be held in Japan. The outlook for 2020 by the economists, by the Feng-sui experts, and by majority of Filipino people is that this is going to be a great big year.

Including me, I was hoping that this year is going to be prosperous. Until these things happened: Taal Volcano Eruption Thousands of families lost their homes. We were shocked, saddened by the impact of ashfalls not only to the nearby towns in Taal Volcano but also in provinces as far as those in Central Luzon. Death tolls were recorded in the following days, both humans and animals. Restrictions to enter danger zones were imposed, giving residents more pa

My Motorcycle Adventures Featured Destination: Ginger Breadhouse

Here in Cavite, there is a place called Gingerbread House. Sounds like a place from a childhood fantasy movie or play, or from a television program for kids back in the 90’s, right? We’ll, it’s a kind of that, full of fantasy for a kid or teen to be experienced here. Though we’re not kids anymore, going here reminds me of two things: Christmas and Adventure. The Tricky Drive to the House Driving to the Ginger Breadhouse in Alfonso, Cavite is quite an adventure. The place is so hidden, far from the main roads. But if you're a kind of driver who’s used to checking your Waze app or Google maps or simply that GPS device, you can be there. Alternatively, a combination of asking people on the streets would definitely make everything easier for you. And to cut the story short, after series of checking the map and asking for direction from good people of Cavite, we arrived at Ginger Breadhouse at around eight in the morning that fine sunny day. Christmas is in the Air When we got there, th
