Agri-Tourism Trade – Niyogyugan Festival Quezon

Awhile ago I browsed my compilation of photos and saw these photos from Niyogyugan Festival (Celebration of the Tree of Life). The celebration is the 2nd Agri-Tourism Trade showing the different products of agricultural in Quezon Province. Well, coconut is the main product here in Quezon reason why the theme for this year is Niyogyugan (Niyog – tagalog word for coconut). Silly me, lol, I didn’t share the event which held last August.

It was a week celebration with different activities like Agri-Tourism Trade Fair Booth, Sayaw sa Niyog Competition (Dance with Coconut Competition), Festival Queen Competition, Agri-Tourism Exposition, and Float Parade Competition.

Holidays in Mexico 2013: Top 3 Attractions

Heading for a short haul Lanzarote holiday is definitely exciting, but sometimes you yearn for something a little more exotic. Early bird deals on holidays in Mexico 2013 are online now. Why not venture a little further for a little longer next year?

Holidays in Mexico 2013 are flooding with attractions, entertainment and sightseeing opportunities.  Think of the region as a historical haven mixed with eccentric American-esque nightlife and facilities.

However you want to spend your spare days in the sun, be sure to add the following attractions to your adventuring itinerary.

  • Xcaret Park is one of the most exciting days out you will ever experience. Dubbed as, ‘Cancun and Riviera Maya’s top eco archaeological park for family fun’, here holidaymakers can be at the heart of Mayan nature and wildlife.

Swim with dolphins, trek the tropical jungle trail, and explore much more at ‘Mexico’s sacred paradise’.

  • Take a trip back in time and pay a visit to the impressive remains of ancient Mayan civilization.

Coba, Chichen Itza and the Tulum Ruins are all essential sightseeing opportunities for every traveller – whether you usually visit historical sites or not.

Choosing to tour the sites with a guide will give you a good insight into the relevance of structures such as the Temple of the Descending God and El Castillo.

  • Step inside Coco Bongo Cancun for a nightlife adventure that is quite simply out of this world.

Easily reached by taxi or bus at the main boulevard in Cancun, there is no excuse for not paying a visit to this sensational party palace.

Authentic tribute acts, epic laser shows and classic hits make Coco Bongo the hottest party in the world. As The New York Times says, ‘you have to experience it to believe it’.

When you fancy a change from your usual short-haul jaunt, deals on holidays in Mexico 2013 are an extravagance not to be missed.

Singapore here they come

This is the first time my mother will travel outside the Philippines. She was invited by my sister and her family to go with them for a short vacation in Singapore. Daughter wish to go with them but it’s possible because we don’t have money, hahah. And besides this is not the proper time because she has many activities in school.  Another thing, we don’t have money to use. I have to work hard first online so we could afford traveling other country or even beautiful places in the Philippines.

Anyway, I hope my mother, sister and her family will have a wonderful vacation in Singapore. Hope they won’t forget our pasalubong (homecoming gift) hahah! Have a safe trip!

Quick Update:

It’s been 7 months since my mother and sister’s family visited Singapore. I forgot to update this post but mother had so many stories to share about Singapore. Some of the tourist spots in Singapore they enjoyed were Universal Studios, Marina Bay Sands, Sentosa and other popular tourist destinations in Singapore. 

She mentioned that Singapore is really a clean country and this country prohibits littering. How I wish our country will also implement same thing. Anyhow, mother brought us some pasalubong; daughter and I got Singapore shirts.

Well after I heard positive things about Singapore, I was thinking if daughter and I will have a chance to visit that country or other Asian countries as well. I heard from a friend that FlightHub is offering cheap and affordable travel experience especially to Asian countries. Ok, I will check this site now and hopeful that I will get good deals from them.

Will visit Liliw, Laguna

Tomorrow morning we will go to Liliw, Laguna once again. We go there once a month so expect me sharing post about Liliw most of the time. Anyway, as usual the purpose is not to unwind but to buy shoes and slippers for our small business. I hope the place is not affected by flood because I heard some of the places in Laguna also experienced monsoon weather that resulted to flood. So hoping Liliw, Laguna is not affected so we can do our business. At the same time, our expenses that will be used to go there will not go to waste. Its getting late I need to sleep now. We will leave our place early morning so see you in my next post. Have a safe weekend everyone.

Coming Soon to the NEC: Top Gear Live

After the hype of the summer has subsided, and the autumnal months loom over us like a raincloud, Top Gear Live! will return to the NEC in Birmingham to entertain their audience once again.

Between the 25th and 28th October, the humorous trio of Clarkson, Hammond and May will be joined by the tame racing driver, The Stig, in a live arena show to ensure a fantastic, memorable day out.

With a live track and an interactive exhibition, the show will only be visiting the NEC for the first time ever – no more stops anywhere in the UK. All the more reason to book some time off work and travel to Birmingham and not miss out, eh?

It promises to be the “biggest and boldest you have ever seen” and with the basic ticket price of a mere £20, there’s packages to suit every budget. Bear in mind that the cheapest tickets do have a restricted view and you won’t be able to see all aspects of the stage. It may affect your ability to appreciate the entire show as much as you would if you were to treat yourself, by upgrading to a more expensive package. For £99 plus booking fee, you can get the ultimate ticket – the platinum – which includes one of the best seats, access to the exhibition, exclusive access to the Platinum Lounge, an Arena Paddock tour and some awesome merchandise.

Get up close and personal with the hosts of the hit BBC show. Be entertained with the unedited, uncensored debates that the presenters will inevitably partake in. Admire some of the most expensive cars in the world as they arrive in the arena and watch the stunt drivers perform for your viewing pleasure.  

Action packed, fun filled entertainment in the heart of Birmingham. Go all out – book cheap hotel near the NEC and make a night of it.

Isdaan in Calauan, Laguna

It’s been a long time since I last updated this blog. Well, sad to say I don’t have any places to go, just house – school or other way around. Ooops, before I forget, last July 15 we went to Liliw, Laguna for the fourth time. We went there not to unwind but just like the previous visits, we went to Liliw for the purpose of buying slippers and shoes that we could sell here in our place.

After we finished our agenda in Liliw, my sister and her family brought us to Isdaan. It is a floating restaurant at the same time fun park located in Calauan, Laguna. It’s our first time to visit the place. We arrived late around 6 pm (not so sure) but the sun is already hiding. The place is nice with so many attractions to enjoy but the food is quite expensive.

I will share some of our photos next time. I need to get it first from my sister account in Facebook =). Too bad I didn’t bring my own camera. I thought we will just buy slippers/shoes in Liliw so I didn’t mind bringing camera. Lesson learned, always bring camera all the time.

Anyway, I have to sleep now need to rest because my daughter will have class early morning, that’s what I am saying house – school and other way around =).
