Thank your Nurse!

I would like to extend my gratitude to Dr. Elna Chia and the great nurses at Mother Seton for the care they had given me during my short stay at the hospital.  It made my hospital stay more bearable.

I never got a chance to say thank you to all of you who treated me with my emergency operation to remove an invader in my ovaries.  Thank you…thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Photo was taken earlier today before heading out for dinner. It just made my Singaporean Spicy Shrimp Laksa more special.

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.

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?

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?

STONEHOUSE GARDENS RESORT

A private rain forest resort

Since I have one month left before I come back to Manila, I said why not make the most of my time here in Bicol.  I heard about this resort through google and by my hike to Malabsay Falls Mt Isarog.  So made an effort to wake early and asked my sister to take me to the base of Mt Isarog. Walked the trail to the resort and as soon as I entered, I was mesmerized by its beauty.  To top it all, I was the only guest there. I had the pool, the 11 acres of rain forest, farm and gardens to myself. What made my day really special was the hospitality of the owners. They gave me free lunch which I did not expect. Plus, produce from their organic farm. I only planned a day outing but wished I stayed overnight. I did not wanna leave but I have to travel to Legaspi in two days so I promise them, I will be back but will stay there for three days longer to explore the rain forest  and more.

Happiness all day!
