Feasted at KFC

I have no plan going out today but my sister-in-law and brother went to the house. So, we went to the mall near to us. After strolling and buying some clothes for the kids we decided to eat first before strolling again. My sister-in-law won some bucks in a contest here in blogosphere. She said she will treat us so we decided to eat at KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken. We ate their famous chicken, funshots for Kyla, chicken Caesar salad and chicken burger. I always love to dine here at KFC because I love their chicken and their deeply loved gravy. You can make their gravy as viand already and you can have as much as you want because it’s unlimited unlike other fast food restaurants. Anyway, we were all satiated and I was thankful because Kyla and I eat our merienda/snack for free, heheh.

I was just curious about KFC reason for me to know where it was started and according to Wikipeadia – KFC, founded and also known as Kentucky Fried Chicken, is a chain of fast food restaurants based in LouisvilleKentuckyUnited States. KFC has been a brand and operating segment, termed a concept of Yum! Brands since 1997 when that company was spun off from PepsiCoas Tricon Global Restaurants Inc.

KFC primarily sells chicken pieces, wrapssalads and sandwiches. While its primary focus is fried chicken, KFC also offers a line of grilled and roasted chicken products, side dishes and desserts. Outside the USA, KFC offers beef based products such as hamburgers or kebabs, poutine, pork based products such as ribs and other regional fare.

Summer 2012 and places i want to visit

Where to go this summer? Summer comes just once a year so I think it’s better to unwind during this time. Also it is also the time to relax after working so hard for the past months. Family hasn’t talked on where to go but I hope we will. As for me, I want to go somewhere with beach or swimming pool to lessen the heat we have now. Aside from that I want to travel also.  We already visited Baguio, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Vigan, Cebu, Bohol, Tagaytay and Puerto Galera (not sure if I mentioned all). Anyway, without my family I also had the chance to visit Boracay and Hongkong.

If I have enough money here are the places I want to visit Palawan, Davao, Subic Bay, and other nearby places. I heard each of the places have different tourist spots so really wanted to experience their place. See how beautiful their place at the same time tries their foods. I believe each of the places in our country has their own specialty another reason why I love to travel.

Anyway, wherever we will go this summer for sure I will let you know. So, what about your summer plans? Care to share… Whatever it is I hope we all have breathtaking summer 2012.

Summer in the Philippines

Its already Summer in the Philippines. And when you say summer it means fun fun fun. Normally, in this season reunions, swimming, get together, unwind and travel takes place. So do you have plans already? Are you going to travel here and abroad? 

Right now, we don’t have plan yet but normally the family travels. Last year we went to Puerto Galera. Initial planned was to travel in Batangas City but ended traveling Puerto Galera. We stayed here for two nights and we had fun especially my daughter Kyla because it’s her first time to go in the beach. I remembered she was very happy playing in the sand and making sand castle. 

I look forward to travel again; there are many good places here in the Philippines that I wanted to visit. We have 7,107 islands and in my more than thirty years existing here only few had been visited. 

I just hope that I have enough money, hahah. It’s hard to travel when your pocket is empty. So I hope more opps online so when the family decided to travel again this summer, Kyla and I will surely join them.

But it’s easy for me to share it through my blog. But of course with limitation, I don’t share everything especially personal things that could harm on my part. Anyway, aside from sharing my emotions, feelings on my blog I also love it because for the past years blogging is the source of my earning online.

Paraw Regatta Festival in Iloilo

Earlier I watched Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho show. They featured Paraw Regatta Festival happening in Iloilo every month of February. Now, they are on its 39th year started in the year 1973. At first, I have no idea about their festival but watching the report got me familiar with it.

Regatta is the oldest traditional craft event in Asia, and the leading sailing event in the Philippines.  The Iloilo Paraw Regatta Foundation currently organizes the activities, with leading support from the Iloilo City and Provincial Governments and the Department of Tourism, along with private sector donations.

Paraw Regatta Festival took place last February 12-19. There were lots of activities but the main event was thirty- kilometer distance race sailed on a course in the Iloilo Strait, running up the coast of Panay and then down the coast of Guimaras, before returning to the finish at Villa Beach.  The grand winner took home prize of 50 thousand pesos.

The objective of the Regatta is to celebrate the skills of the paraw sailors, and bring a fiesta spirit into their lives.  Different colorful painted sails are features yearly for added attractions.  

I think Iloilo is a cool place to visit, I’m gonna put this destination to my travel memo. And hoping to visit and explore their beautiful place. Its more fun in Paraw Regatta Festival in Iloilo =).

A walk to remember: Unusual holiday walks not to be missed

Guest post written by friend Vicky Dean

Perhaps you are a person who likes to have an active holiday. Alternatively, you may fancy a change from lounging around the poolside when you go away. A walking holiday is a great alternative. Without being too strenuous, it allows you to take in all of the sights and sounds of the local cultures. Walking holidays can suit people of almost all levels of fitness.

There is a staggering amount of choice for people looking for walking holidays, and sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. Why not try something completely different by going on an unusual walking holiday? Below are three destinations that will guarantee you experience a holiday that is both unique and unforgettable: 

Bhutan

Bhutan is an extremely interesting place that is situated in Asia, just North of Bangladesh. It is a relatively small and unknown country, and actually only started to let people from other countries in from 1974. As walking holidays go,Bhutanis incomparable to most other places on Earth. Its most alluring features are its strongly conservative sense of tradition and the fact that it has not changed for decades. The scenery and architecture are simply stunning. It is recommended that you hire an experienced tour guide when walking inBhutan. 

Kenya Walking Safari

Unknown to most people, you can actually walk in certain Safari parks inKenya. This may come as a surprise, as most of us associate a Safari holiday with travelling around in some sort of 4×4 vehicle. This is an absolutely amazing destination for lovers of walking holidays, particularly if you enjoy observing and encountering wildlife that is not native to any other country. You will get to take in all of the sights and sounds, very much avoiding the majority of tourists. It is recommended that you hire experienced tour guides; and certain tours will be guided by the Masai people.  

The Secret Trails of Corsica

Corsicais a relatively small Mediterranean island which is also a French region. It’s a beautiful place with a delightful climate. Most Corsicans believe that they are quite different to the French people, and you are guaranteed a different experience if you embark on one of the walking holidays inCorsica. Their culture is interesting yet traditional. You will be surrounded by the beautifulMediterranean sea. Most of the terrain is quite rugged and therefore some of it is challenging. This may be the cheapest option out of the three as many people have self-guided tours here.
