“The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.” -Erma Bombeck
This post is about Victoria BC- THE BEAUTIFUL!
The city I visited to see a childhood best friend (ANNA)
It’s clean and family oriented town
The people are great and an outdoorsy type of place
There are theaters, restaurants and coffee shops galore
Museums, art gallery and the great EMPRESS HOTEL!
Everything you could hope for………….
Although, I visited THE BEAUTIFUL Victoria BC last 2011
I say, it is a sin not to share this BEAUTIFUL PLACE – Victoria BC
In the beginning, all I had was an address of DTI Legaspi not knowing one of my followers is one of the head Director of Department of Trade in Legaspi (Chito Aguilar). Serendipitous indeed! So I met Mindy Yee of Leslie's Pili Pulp Oil first and they showed me Canarium The First Virgin Kernel Oil and other Pili Oil based products.
When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused. Rainer Maria Rilke
This is the moment I am waiting for and I am happy to introduce to you:
Canarium "The First Virgin"
Pili nuts come from the Pili tree (Genus: Canarium ovatum Engl.). Pili are native to maritime Southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea, and Northern Australia. They are commercially cultivated in the Philippines for their edible nuts. The Pili tree is a hardy rainforest tree that bears a nut with a very hard pointed shell, which houses the creamy, yummy nut.
Happy Belated Fathers Day Papa!
I thought I should tell you some things that other people know but I may not have ever told you when you were still alive. First of all you are my hero. You have always been my hero since I was a little girl. Secondly, I am very grateful for all the blessings you have given me over the years, and the heavenly guidance you and Mama provided to all of us. I know you are in heaven with Mama but sometimes, I still feel your presence. You never stopped being a dad and because of your kindness to people when you were alive, the blessings from up above was showered all over us – your children. You only hired disabled people. Workers that did not have a chance to work but you gave them a chance. You and Mama opened your doors to our relatives and helped those in need. I will never forget that. You taught me to be humble and you taught me to treat everybody the same. We never run out of blessings despite our differences and beliefs.
Thanks to you and Mama, we are still okay. I know one day all will be fine, we will get that house we dreamed for.
Your youngest daughter, Jenny
