The photos were taken during the morning off the family reunion last July 2012.
Thanks to Pepermint-Media.com, they made the memory of that day last forever.
A place so solemn, nothing but God’s peaceful presence.
If you are planning to visit Naga City, please feel free to stop by Carmelite Monastery

Do not know much about architecture, but I am a big fun of NEO Classical Architecture in Churches. Its purest form in style was derived from Classical Greece and Rome – very Baroquish (Baroque in short). At the back of the church, also lies an old cemetery. Blast from the past!
Lovely day spent with my brother…

Dear Santa Clause,
Since the world did not end on the 21st of December and if I could have my hearts wish, I would like to travel a little more for the year 2013. I see a lot of travel bloggers who get paid for doing the thing they love most write and travel. It would be nice if someone or a company can sponsor me to grant my wish. Yes, I might be pushing the limit here but who knows. This wish list to Santa Dearest will be a series of posts as their will be other parts of the Philippines and other places overseas I would like to see as well.
For this post, first stop is Bicol.
I listed 3 big tourist attractions in this post that I have not seen yet but there are lesser known places in Bicol that I, Jenny, needs to visit.
1) Check out Caramoan Island and stay in Gotta Beach
Out of the 7000 islands in the Philippines, Caramoan is probably known for its international exposure. Caramoan has been the favorite site for international franchise – Survivor. The place has hosted the Serbian, Israel, Bulgarian, Swedish, India and lastly, US Survivor versions. Popular tourist destinations are the Caramoan National Park, the Centro, and Gota Beach, and popular activities include diving, swimming, snorkeling and spelunking.
Please check them out for rates and travel info @: Caramoan Island
2) Check out Misibis Bay Resort, Cagraray Island– the luxury island playground!
Misibis Bay is a private tropical hideaway built on a pristine stretch of beach along the southern tip of Cagraray Island in Bacacay, Albay. Misibis Bay Resort is a wonderful place to visit for its relaxing atmosphere, the surroundings looks so fantastic and beautiful, and a haven afar the crowded and polluted cities elsewhere. However, looking at the prices of foods, drinks and room rates are pretty steep compared to other similar places and 5-star hotels in the big cities, nonetheless, it still does not stop me from wishing to visit Misibis Bay Resort one day.
Please check them out for rates and travel info @: Misibis Bay
3) Donsol, Sorsogon to see Butanding, Whale Shark
I visited Sorsogon once but only came there for a bit for my Pili Oil Blog but did not have the time to check Donsol out.
When you are coming from Albay, it is one hour drive south of Sorsogon. Donsol is a host to one of the highest concentration of Whale Sharks in the world. These creatures have been frequenting the waters off Donsol, Sorsogon for many generations.
Although Whale Sharks, or “Butanding” as they are locally known, are enormous in size and power, reaching lengths greater than 15 meters, they are remarkably gentle and docile enough that it is generally safe to swim among them. Swimming among the whale sharks is a captivating experience. Generally, the whale sharks at Donsol swim very close to the surface of the water. I am not a daring person but I don’t mind doing basic snorkeling in order to get closer to the gentle giant. My biggest wish!
The Lonely Planet Guidebook describes the Donsol experience as the “quintessential Philippine adventure.” The Time Magazine called swimming with whale sharks the “Best Animal Encounter in Asia,” in one of their issues in year 2004.
Genie, in the bottle! Please grant all my wishes……….
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.
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?
You will always be remembered for your country’s service
No longer in our life to share
but you will always be present in our hearts
You are a great politician
You speak of the people
Your legacy must be followed
For the betterment of the country
Good-bye DILG Sec Jesse Robredo
LRV AGRI-SCIENCE FARM & RESORT
What a well spent day out with family! As always, those unexpected trips are the most fun ones. Plus, no rain and the sky is as blue as you can get…
My sister-in-law suggested LRV Agri-Science Farm Resort in San Bernardino, Calabanga, Camarines Sur. Surprised again!!!!!!!!!!! Just like the Stonehouse Garden Resort in Mt Isarog. So I took my brother, his wife, a family friend and my nieces with me.
LRV Agri-Science Farm is an eco-friendly fully functioning agri-tourism resort and it was founded on November 4, 2010. It was set for an advocacy and promotion of agri-tourism projects to increase the sustainability of livelihood programs for surrounding communities.
For peaceful and tranquil pursuits there are a couple of swimming pools, fishing lagoons and boating lakes. Outdoor leisure and activities also include family picnics, bonfire sites, river rafting, surf biking, kayaking, fishing and it provides pathways for walking, jogging and cycling. How can you beat that…..
We will surely come back but this time we will rent a cabana and spend the night in the agri-farm resort!
