Bicolano Beggar

Today, I am posting another picture of the beggar in the Naga City market steps.  This pic I took when I was leaving the market.  I find that street pictures are more powerful especially the ones that speak of poverty.  This beggar is just one of a billion people struggling, not for their shelter and belongings but they struggle with their life day to day. Usually people born with poverty never get out of it. If their parents are born below the poverty line; usually, the children grow up the same way. A sad reality not just in my country but all over the world.

Peñafrancia Grey Marble Artisan

The pictures were taken during the last day of Peñafrancia Festival.  During the fiesta, you will see loads of artisans from all over Naga City and from other parts of Bicol selling their crafts. Fiesta’s is their busiest time.

I got myself a mortar & pestle and used it as a paper weight in my office to hold down my receipts. Not really a cook so I used it as an ornament. I think it’s pretty.

Sorry again for not posting lately. I have been busy but loving it. Anyways, I have been collecting pictures since I moved here in Naga City. I will try to do one picture post a day and show you around my province.

The picture was taken today in Naga City Market steps. I had to go and check out the markets for a wedding give away. No, I am not getting married. I am very single. This is for somebody else. Anyway, I spent the afternoon snapping up pictures of native handicraft bags. So every time I go to the market, I see this beggar. I always stop by and give money to the beggar upon leaving. It just breaks my heart. I asked him to smile to me but he was very shy. I think this photograph is very symbolic because despite the big economic improvement in my province; I still see a lot of poverty when I am out and about. Mostly these beggars have syndicates; they have a master. Despite knowing this, I still give money because how can you not too?

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.

Why I prefer freelancing?

Please forgive me if I have not been following your blogs lately.  I have been busy with setting up with my new venture and the same time looking for freelance work.

Canarium, The First Virgin Kernel Oil is trading in Alibaba.com!!!

 

I have not found work yet but still positive that I will be able to find one soon while I pursue my passion of blogging and promoting Bicol’s flagship product “Pili Oil”.  So far, I have received several inquiries in Alibaba and through my Canarium, The First Virgin Blog.  I hope this will lead to some deal pretty soon.

The reason why I prefer telecommuting than working in an office setting because I do have obligations with my family and telecommuting will give me the time to check on my brother.  He is doing so much better now.  He is responding with the medication the doctor prescribed him.  He is starting to talk and slowly by slowly, he is gaining his independence back. He is disabled and healthcare in the Philippines is not off par so one has to be creative in searching for the right doctor especially in the province. I love my brother and this is so far one of the best thing I did in my life. Because of this, I refused to work in an office setting.  I am doing all I can to find work freelancing so I can help my brother and also, follow my passion.

Hoping for a miracle!

This is why I enjoy blogging and prefer to do freelance: 

Today I stopped by a Tropical Wine kiosk in the mall. I remembered blogging about the Bignay Tropical Wine (please click on the link) and immediately, the girl remembered me.  She said you’re the blogger in Jenny’s Serendipity. She was surprised to see me and she was following my site and knows what I was doing. I tried the Tamarind Wine and she asked me to come back to try there other products. I told her that my Bignay Wine post is one of my most viewed post and she was delighted when she heard that. Took some pictures of my serendipitous date with Don Ramon’s Sweet Tropical Wine Collection. If you are in Naga City, please stop by:  NAGALAND E-MALL, ELIAS ANGELES ST., NAGA CITY FROM AUGUST 28- SEPT 1, 2012.

Where was I this weekend?

Mayon Volcano, Legaspi

Where was I this weekend?

Legaspi!

The trip was mainly for my second blog: Canarium The First Virgin Kernel but I did squeeze in some pleasure with this weekend trip. Engineer, Victor Goyena, or Bogg’s in short, invited me to attend the Albay Pili Industry Federation (APIF) mobile meeting in Daraga Legaspi. The meeting involved not just Pili Oil but all aspects of the Pili Industry.  I will post the details of the APIF meeting on a later date together with my 6 hectare Pili and fresh produce organic farm visit in Anislag Daraga.

Anislag Daraga Organic Farm Visit

My first stop was A. BICHARA SILVERSCREENS ENTERTAINMENT CENTER to say hello to my dear cousin, Anna Marie. The Bichara Silverscreen is located in the heart of Downtown Legaspi.  The building has an art deco feel and the building showcases innovative interiors and state of the art technology for film viewing. If you are into the past, present and future Hollywood memorabilia,this is the place to go. So if you are around Legaspi, come visit The Silverscreen.

Me & my cousin

Embarcadero is also my usual hangout when I go to Legaspi.  The La Mia Tazza Coffee Shop and the native bazaar section are my favorites.

Me in Embarcadero

I also stopped by Red Continent Diner & Bar for drinks and to have dinner as well.  It is located in the third floor of The Silverscreen. If you are looking for Bicol, Indian, Mediterranian or Thai spicy cuisines and you are currently in Legaspi; then, head over to Red Continent Diner & Bar . You should also try the Pili Butterscotch shake. (Yummy and to die for!) I would like to thank the manager for the 25% discount on my tab.  I will surely be back.

My afternoon stroll in Naga City Market!

My first week in Bicol is mainly hanging out with my family specifically my nieces and nephew.  It was my sisters birthday today so while waiting for the food, I ventured out to the market and checked for abacá and pili products.

Most abacá fiber is pulped and processed into specialty paper used in tea bags, vacuum bags, currency, and more. It can be used to make handcrafts like bags, carpets, clothing and furniture. Abacá rope is very durable, flexible and resistant to salt water damage, allowing its use in hawsers, ship’s lines and fishing nets.

The pili nut is indigenous nut to the Philippines. The pili nut is most abundant in the Bicol region of the Philippines, a peninsula to the west containing the virgin rainforests of Mt. Bulusan. Here, amid untouched primordial woodlands, stand very old pili nut trees measuring some 50 meters high. Other areas of the Bicol region which contain the highly-prized nut include Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay, Sorsogon, and Masbate.

More to come….
