2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 52,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 12 Film Festivals

I am back!

Jennifer BicharaI cannot believe I have not blogged for over a month!

Let me say, I do have the time but my energy is spent between the two, my work and caring for my brother.  Not complaining though.  Happy at my current job and also, happy that I am able to help my brother and his illness considering the lack of adequate health care in my province.  Despite the challenges, trials and tribulations, I still thanked God for all the blessings he had showered me for the past few months.

Yesterday, Cath of Salt for Vanilla stopped by my blog and said hello.  She also did a post about me being her inspiration on her current crisis Serendipity and I  This post is dedicated to her and I would like to tell her thank you and your welcome. She is a sweet lady and she calls me Ate.  Ate is a form of respect for the elders.  No, I am not a senior citizen but I am a few years older than her.  She is one of the few Filipina followers I have. She has so much talent in cooking – everyone should go check her blog out.

Since its Friday, I would like to give you a little entertainment.  The video is in Korean but I totally adore the kid in Gangnam Style – Min-woo Hwang.   Am pretty sick of Gangnam Style but the kid, I love him to death.  This kid can dance.  AMAZING!  He will be great one day…

So enjoy and have a Happy Friday and a merry weekend! BTW, Belated Happy Thanksgiving everyone…

The 3 C’s in Life

I found this wonderful quote in Naga City market while roaming around looking for native Bicol products for my new pad.  I think it is awesome.

What do you think?

Gainza & 1st Bicol Travel and Food Expo Trade Fair

Sorry, I have been busy in the home and work front but I did managed to stop by two trade shows during the Peñafrancia Festival. A happy place for me!

The first one is the 2012 Bishop Francisco Gainza Trade Fair (BFGTF). It includes traditional participants in food processing and handicraft producers as well as consolidators and franchise businesses. The Bishop Francisco Gainza Trade Fair was organized by the Archdiocese of Caceres through the Caceres Social Action Foundation, Inc. (CASAFI). It’s origin traces back from Bishop Francisco Gainza who pioneered the First Agro-Industrial Fair in Bicol in 1875. The fair is geared towards alleviating poverty through entrepreneurship and solidarity that promotes integral development. (Cbanga360.net)

The second trade fair I attended is the first ever Bicol Travel and Food Expo (BITFEX).The 11th Regional Tourism Congress was held last September 12-16, 2012 at the fully air conditioned exhibit tent of the Avenue Plaza Hotel , the premiere boutique hotel in this city. The event was spearheaded by PBN TV5 and DZOK, in partnership with the City Government of Naga and Avenue Plaza Hotel, and in cooperation with the Department of Tourism V, the Department of Trade & Industry V, Department of Agriculture V, TESDA V, and the Bicol Regional Tourism Council (BRTC).

Me trying the chilled taho. He is also the one that made the furniture. He already exports furniture in Europe.

I enjoy going to trade shows that promote Filipino Products specifically Bicol Products. Always a passion of mine. I did meet a couple of vendors and traders who are of great talent. One even invited me to go to her organic farm in Baao (The La Huerta Organic & Leisure Farm) and also join her art group. I will do a post on a later date on each of this very talented vendors.

My home is slowly filling up with native handicraft from abaca, capiz, wooden, sweet tropical wines, bags, baskets, bauls and bayong. Even a walis! It is trully addicting for me. Besides a passion, I also like helping small artisans. With me buying their products, I get to help their business in a small way. When I have time, I also check the Naga City market, always hunting for products.  Plus, when I am in traveling within Bicol,  always make sure I check out the markets. It is a huge Cost Plus for me.
