Welcome to Tagaytay City

February 28, 2010

Majestic Clouds caped us while we were on the Highway from Batangas Province entering Cavite, Tagaytay City. It was a very cool day and as I have mentioned before, Tagaytay City is truly the Coldest point in Cavite with average Temperature of around 20 - 24 degrees Celsius all year round. Yes, that is considered cold for a Tropical Country like the Philippines.

I am very sorry for the quality since I was inside my friend's car when I got to take this shot. I would like to thank everyone for joining me this whole month of February. I am very proud to say that this moth has been Cavite Daily Photo's month with the most posts since October 2008. Despite the busy schedule getting ready for Graduation this March, I still had all the time and most importantly, the drive to deliver you all fresh photos of Cavite with all your inspiration and Kind Comments! Those comments are what keeps me and my Blog running!

Thank you all so much and may he have a Fantastic March ahead! 26 Days left till my College Graduation! I'm so excited! You guys made my College life a lot easier because every stress I've had is erased by all you kind words and never ending support! I'll leave you all with the plea to pray for Chile and all the Surrounding Pacific Islands, including The Philippines for we have a Tsunami Alert. God Bless the World!

Hazy Sky Watching

February 26, 2010

This was shot on our Senior Year Retreat at Charles Huang Convention Center just beside Tagaytay City last August 2009. You can see my dear friend Macon savoring the beautiful hazy horizon facing Batangas Province during the morning we arrived. The Morning Fog enveloped us and the whole surrounding with its cool misty feel which made everyone happy.

Our retreat was truly a fun experience! The whole Block bonded together during those two days and it was truly a memorable experience we will treasure forever, Just as the BCS42 Motto, "We are all made of Stars".

This is another Skywatch Friday post! If you wish to see More stories of the Sky around the globe,just click on the Image Below:

It's Hard to say Goodbye

February 25, 2010

De La Salle University - Dasmariñas of Dasmariñas, Cavite, my home for the past four years of College. Whew! It was truly a breeze, College Life? But every step of it was truly a learning experience for every student that will enter these gates and experience the 'home' away from home environment that DLSU-D offers. Unlike other colleges, DLSU-D truly gave a carefree environment that students from different Provinces here at the Philippines enjoyed and went hand in hand with the quality education it offers.

A member Institution of De La Salle Philippines Inc., One of only three 'Dark Green' Schools in the Republic accredited by the 'Dark Green Schools' Accreditation, an Environmental Accreditation Body for Colleges and Universities across the Nation. PAASCU Accredited Level III and an Autonomous University as granted by CHED. The list goes on and on but the most important honor it had is having students like me who are truly proud of the University that 'created possibilities' towards our very own success.

I will truly be proud to be a part of this institution and forever honored to be an Alumnus of DLSU-D, my University. While the Wise and Beautiful Trees bid goodbye to us Seniors as we march out of its gates and into the world, all of the memories of Green and White will always be in all of our hearts, continuously playing like a film without sound. But as for me, Will it really be Goodbye to DLSU-D?

HAIL DLSU-D BATCH 2010! HAIL TO DE LA SALLE!

The Unexpected Paradise

February 24, 2010

I hope I did not spoil your excitement but here it is. As we walked a minute from the photo yesterday, this is what you'll see, a beautiful River, Crystal Clear, which is very rare on present Cavite. This is actually located at Barangay Tapia, General Trias, Cavite. You can see fishes swimming even from the Banks full of Sand and the greens are just truly overwhelming!

My dad said that when He was young, he and his friends would go here for camping! They've got so many memories with all his friends out here. Though most of them are already in the States, whenever they would all get together for a reunion, they're still the closest friends you'll see.

Path to an Unexpected Paradise

Febraury 23, 2010

While we were on the Rove along the Municipality. My dad suddenly stopped beside the road and said he would be showing me something. A place where he and his friends went camping and chilling during his Teenage days. First I refused because it's all grassy and I am very prone to itch but when I saw this pathway, I got down from the truck and Followed him.

As you can see Tall Bamboo and Wild Banana Trees have been lining along the way towards the 'place' we are going to. It was just at the end of the path, which you can see in this photo, you can have a glimpse of what is in there. I was truly WOWed by what I saw. I never expected to see such a place here in our town. I am sharing the view!

Tomorrow! So Stay tuned and be here Tomorrow and You'll know what I mean.

General Trias to the Rescue

February 22, 2010

Today, I will be featuring a very important subject for me. This is the Rescue II Truck of the Municipality of General Trias, of course, Cavite. The man in front of the Truck is nobody else but my Dad. He has been working for the Municipal Government's Rescue Team for almost 5 years now. It is a very busy Job because you always have to be alert 24/7 and almost everyday, He is in charge of streetlight checking and repair and other tasks which requires the Rescue Truck.

On my free days, I also come with him to his Rove around the Municipality and help whatever I can do. When I do, I usually bring my Camera because it is a very good Photo Opportunity of course, we'll never know what great things we'll e seeing worth shooting! But in case of emergency, I always have my Camera Phone to the RESCUE!

I am very proud of my Father! He is a very great guy and of big help not just to us, his Family, but to the whole Municipality as well.

Worried about Money

February 21, 2010

On my ride to the University, I was very lucky to have ridden this Jeepney that has this sign just behind the Driver's seat. It says everything that I really feel for tough times as now and I wish everybody on this earth would. I am very happy that there are still people willing to Spread the Word of God in their very own possible way.

"Do you want to be truly Rich? You already are if you're happy and good. After all, we didn't bring any money with us when we came into the world, and we can't carry away a single penny when we die. So we should be well satisfied without money if we have enough food or clothing. But people who long to be rich soon begin to do all kinds of wrong thing to get money, things that hurt them and make them evil minded and finally send them to hell itself. For the love of money is the first step towards ALL kinds of sins. Some people even turned away from God because of their love for it, and as a result have pierced themselves with many sorrows"

The Passage tells us not to avoid money because of course, we do need it. But desiring for more and becoming greedy is when it becomes bad. It's not wrong to have a lot of money, unless you are doing your actions to share your blessings with other people and not using it for Power or the likes, then you really deserve all the blessings from God. Have a Great Week ahead!

Fire!!!

February 20, 2010

I was homebound from the University on a Heat-filled afternoon when my Jeepney passed this cloud of smoke and we were all wondering were did it came from! Until we made the turn at San Francisco, General Trias, Cavite, where in this spot, oftenly called Monterey(Places from California isn't it) a massive smoke cloud was starting to get more and more bigger until we knew that the grasses are on fire. So the Traffic Enforcers made our Jeepney turn back and pass an alternative road just beside the main one, including that one in front of us.

Until now, there is still no exact proof as to how the Fire started but Jeepney drivers think it is because of those little shops that lined up the street that caused it.

By the way, to everyone that kindly leaves their touching comments, please do come back on that very post you left it because I always reply to them^^

The Dragon that Captured my Heart

February 14, 2010

Photo Shot earlier at 9:40

We were at Binondo, Manila the Whole day to celebrate the Chinese New Year! It was loads of fun and Dragon dances here and there! But the one that captured my heart are these children playing along with a carton and one of them was beating the can, their drum. I was really awed by the creativity of these Kids that no matter what, they can always have all the fun they want!

As I was shooting them, One of them saw me and they stopped because they were just really playing around! But eventually, they continued as we left their street! I was really amazed not just how resourceful they are but they really perform like professionals on that very street! The beating was perfect, actually better than some Dragon Dancers we saw the whole day!

This very Moment touched my heart and gave me hope that youth from my country, despite the poverty and all other aspects of crisis, can still have all the abilities to dream and act their dreams for success for themselves and I hope, for the world as well. Kung Hei Fat Choi to all my Fellow Chinese-Filipinos and to each and every Chinese around the world! May we have a Great Year ahead! Also, Happy Valentines Friends! Continue touching hearts!

I just want to greet my friend Hilda of My Manila for including me and my blog on one of her posts! It really meant a lot my friend! I LOVE MANILA! WE ALL DO! Forgive me everybody for my week-long absence, Midterms passed by. God Bless us all

DLSU-D Presidential Forum

February 6, 2009

Photos were taken Yesterday at De La Salle University - Dasmariñas, Dasmariñas, Cavite, My Beloved Alma Mater. Featuring Presidentiables Former National Defense Secretary Gilberto "Gibo" Teodoro and Senator Richard "Dick" Gordon. Out of all the 8 Candidates, only the two of them were brave enough and allotted their time to meet us LaSallians.

Gibo Teodoroarrived first, the entourage was wearing all green including the Whole Local Government of
Dasmariñas, Congressman Pidi Barzaga and her wife Mayor Jenny Barzaga, plus their Whole Sangguniang Bayan. Then his time started. He is a great speaker, straight to the point and very professional but confident in his manner. After his Hour, He left with his Entourage with the crowd cheering and applauding, and somestudents had their photos taken with him until he got out of Ugnayang La Salle(Our Gymnasium).

But the crowd went wilder when a shorter guy came inside the ULS, it was Senator Dick Gordon. It was quite a while when he arrived in front and
he was very enthusiatic climbing the stage and unlike Gibo, he was more laid back and very very comfortable talking us all. Every statement he gives, the crowd roars with applause and laughter. And after his whole time, students were running up the stage (Including Yours Truly) to shake his hand and take pictures with him. I was very very lucky to have my picture with him! I look upon him even when he was still the Department of Tourism Secretary from 2001 until being a Senator from 2004 until the Present.

The whole LaSallian Community of Dasmariñas, salutes the two candidates for accepting our invitation. I also want to personally thank Brother Gus, our University President and all the organizers for bringing us, registered voters to people to whom we shall give our vote. Ill leave you with a quote from Bro. Gus. It goes something like this: "DLSU-D does not endorse any Candidate, You have your own mind to choose your own. But please remember, never not give your vote to a Candidate because he/she has a poor chance of winning. If you believe in him/her, then they deserve your vote."

I missed SKYWATCH FRIDAY so much!

February 5, 2010

It was a very Sunny yet windy morning at Tagaytay City, Cavite on the Second of January this year! So as to celebrate the beginning of the New Year, me and my friends decided to fly kites and it was really really fun! A lot of people have been flying kites too from little kids, to Grandfathers as well! It was very memorable for us since we don't fly kites so often!

The photo above shows my cousin Judy flying our Kite way way up in the sky! That moment, we reached the final end of our line and just held it up until it went down. Just like in life, If ever we reached our peak, there will always come a time that we will go down. Though, it is always up to us to gather up and try flying again! Who knows, this time, the peak that we thought is actually just a stepping stone to a higher altitude of our dreams!

I would also like to take this opportunity to everybody that sent their Congratulation Greetings over my last posts! It really really is uplifting and truly touching to read all you greetings, especially to you all my Blogger Friends!

This is my Skywatch Post after almost four months of absence! I hope you would all like it! Wish to see more stories of the Sky? Click on the link:Skywatch Friday. Thanks to everyone and God Bless us all this coming Weekend!

Everyone has their time. For me, This is it!

February 3, 2010

This is the second time in Cavite Daily Photo that I have featured Yours Truly. This is it, the moment I have been dreaming all my life, Me on a Black Toga, Graduation Picture. After four long years in the University, I am about to receive my Bachelor's Degree in less than two months. Me and my Classmates were very excited and truly emotional as we received our Graduation Photo Packages earlier at school. I nearly cried of so much Joy in my heart!

I thank God so much for giving me an opportunity to have parents and grandparents that supported my education from Kindergarten up to College. Also, without all my friends and all the people that believed in me, I will not be able to attain everything that I have right now, including you my fellow Bloggers, you made my College life fun. You gave me a way to get out of everything and immerse myself from scenes you deliver on my desktop!

I know this time means goodbye to schooling but I will forever be learning all of the lessons that life is to offer me. I am very proud of what I have accomplished, passed my course with flying colors and not being what a typical college student. Now, I want to extend all my gratitude to each and everyone of you. And I am hoping that you would continue supporting me in my journey of life.

CONGRATULATIONS BATCH 2010! THIS IS OUR TIME :D

Treats from the Deli

February 2, 2009

After my Mom and Dad went to the Hospital for her Check up, They went to Säntis Deli Store with branches at Alabang, Silang, Cavite and Metro Manila. I Love Deli stores! It gives me this fresh feeling that I usually get on early morning markets and the goods are different than the ones you can buy on Supermarkets and Groceries, They got Fresh Milks, Pate, Ham, Swiss Goodies and seasonings.

I just want to greet my friends Abe Lincoln and Patty Lincoln. I don't know if there are still bloggers who don't know them, if you're one of them Better click on their names(which will lead you to their Blogger Profiles) and check on their blogs or you'll miss a big part of inspirations you will be having for your life! They're truly a very inspiring couple! To Abe and Patty, I know I've said this so mind times but that will never be enough, Thank You so much and keep on inspiring us!

Tomorrow is a very very big day for me so stay tuned for tomorrow's post for you to know why! Have a Great rest of the week and God Bless us all :D

Forever Young - COS College Day

February 1, 2010

HIgh School Students? Nahh! Believe it or not, these are our College Professors. They are the Cute Faculty of the Computer Studies Department. As a part of the La Sallian Festival (Jan. 26 - 29, 2010) on the last day, the College of Science celebrates its College Day. During the said event, Faculty members from four Departments of the College of Science namely, Biological Sciences Department (BSD), Computer Sciences Department (CSD), Mathematical Sciences Department (MSD), and Physical Sciences Department (PSD), compete on an annual Faculty Dance Competition.

This year's theme is Asian Pop Songs. Songs from Korea, Japan and Taiwan were featured on the Professors' Presentations. As you can see, the CSD Teachers are wearing a "Boys over Flowers" inspired costume while strutting their stuff on the dance floor! It was really really fun. Our Department, CSD, finished Second to the Three year Champion PSD. But win or lose, every single professor that performed were all worthy of all our cheers and these are times when students like me feel utmost pride for our Mentors! Congratulations COS Teachers! And as we leave the University this March, You all gave us something that we can be mostly proud of, our teachers!
