They say that spontaneous trips are the best and I’m filing this under the said category. Because my sister bought hiking shoes, she’s very eager to try it. Hence, she asked me and Sha to go and climb Pico de Loro with her high school buddy, Alvin.
Here’s a glimpse of the sights and sounds of the recently concluded Masskara Festival 2011 in Bacolod City. It was truly a memorable experience for us!
Yesterday (Christmas day), SEAir surprised everyone with their dancing flight attendants not wearing their usual uniforms. They wore a Santa-inspired dress with a Santa hat. Mark Salling (Puck of Glee) was on that flight from Manila to Caticlan. 😀
After the short dance number by the flight attendants, gifts were given to passengers.
SEAIR offers the fastest flights to Boracay via Caticlan Airport on Panay Island Aklan Province.
I’ve heard so many things about Nuvali, Ayala Land’s development which focuses on evo-living, but it was only 3 weeks ago when I actually witnessed how wonderful this place is. Thanks to the invitation of Jayce Perlas, me and other media practitioners had a half day food tripping tour in Nuvali.
Aside from the food tasting bonanza that we did, my most favorite part of the whole tour was the fish feeding. Nuvali has a man-made lake which has various purposes. You can enjoy fish feeding in lake at the Solenad, the shopping and dining district in Nuvali. Fish feeding is free but you have to buy the fish feeds from them. It costs Php 15 per small bag. As you can see in the video above, the Japanese Kois enjoyed the feeds that visitors feed them. They’re actually a lot, I can’t really say how many they are, but there are gigantic Kois. Many say that Kois can live up to a century and I could just imagine that if it’s already the next century, the Kois in this lake can actually take over the entire province! Haha, just kidding.
FYI, you do not need to be a resident of Nuvali to enjoy the amenities and restaurants there. For more information about Nuvali, please visit their website at www.nuvalievoliving.com.
It was only today when I realized that there is a tranvia/jeepney in Luneta Park. The ride costs 50 pesos per person (20 pesos per child) and the driver will take you around the vicinity of the Luneta Park, where Jose Rizal’s monument stands. At first, we thought that it’s a real tram wherein it passes through tracks. Eventually, we realized that it runs using a diesel engine. I really don’t know how to call it so I just labeled it as tranvia jeepney. 🙂 The tranvia has 2 separate coaches connected to each other so it really looks like a tranvia from afar.
I took a video of some of my blogger friends while riding the tranvia. It was a wonderful experience, and it made me feel like a child again. When you’re in Luneta Park, Manila, this is one thing you can do aside from strolling around or just take a rest in one of the benches there.
We were able to catch USA’s fireworks display last night during the first leg of the first Philippine Pyromusical Competition. The fireworks display last night (held at around 10-15 minutes before 9pm) was brought to us by Pyrofire Displays.
The organizer of the First Philippine Pyro Musical Competition, Platinum Fireworks Inc., won 2nd place in the 21st Macau International Fireworks Competition. This is a glimpse of what we would probably expect on the first and last day of the said event. 🙂
