Foggy Roadside

August 29, 2011


When the sky decided to halt the rain a bit, the Fog on the roadside at Alfonso, Cavite created a blanket of fluff along the grasslands up to the homes. This is a common sight in the Tagaytay-Alfonso Area due to its high altitude and wet climate all year round.

Maragondon Church

August 28, 2011 - Maragondon Church


The Parish of Our Lady of the Assumption in Maragondon, Cavite is probably one of the most famous Landmarks of the Town of Maragondon, Located at the Mountain Districts of Cavite, Maragondon is truly one of the historical sites where Andres Bonifacio have been brought to be judged and executed in Mount Buntis (Pregnant Mountain).

The Church is built with River rocks during the Early 18th Century by the Jesuits. Also, the Maragondon Church is the main inspiration for the overall design of the Chapel of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in De La Salle University - Dasmariñas. Currently, the Church is undergoing Minor reconstructions in the facade.

Typhoon Mina

August 27, 2011 - Typhoon Mina

Photo Shot this morning at Alfonso, Cavite.

Tall Coconut Palm Tress swaying along the streets around the Town of Alfonso in Upland Cavite while me and my Dad went around the mountains this morning in the midst of the storm. Even if Cavite and Metro Manila are not raised to any storm signal, we are not exempted from the gusty winds that Mina has been slapping around Luzon.

Typhoon Mina just got inside the Philippines just a couple of days ago yet it has raised up Storm Signals to it's maximum level. Signal Number 4, which is very rare, is posted in the Northern Province of Cagayan. And almost the whole part of Northern Luzon is under Storm Signals. I hope and pray that God will watch over the Filipinos especially the ones in the Northern Provinces and guard them with His loving arms.

Serenity at Lake La Salle

August 26, 2011

Shot earlier at noon showing a man serenely paddling along the waters of the University Lagoon, or as most of us call it, Lake La Salle, in DLSU-Dasmariñas.

The Lagoon at the Heart of De La Salle University - Dasmariñas has truly been one of the landmarks of the institution. Just like most places around the Campus, the Lagoon has been featured in so many Soap Operas in Philippine Television. It gives a great setting to any romantic scenes that lightens up any dialog between the actors.

But for the people of De La Salle University - Dasmariñas, this has been a symbol of being a part of the LaSallian Community. A lot of memories have been shared with these waters and truly gives a lighter mood to anyone that passes by this lake.

Cavitex at Night

August 14, 2011


Photo shot at the Cavitex or Cavite Express Tollgate at Kawit, Cavite at Night time.

Even in the midst of the evening sky, hundreds of cars and buses pass through the Cavite Express each and everyday. Even if it is a bit pricey for the others 58 Pesos (approx. 1.50 USD) for cars, with the efficiency it gives to the motorists especially those that are raving for more sleeping hours, this is probably a great choice in going home to Cavite.

The Silvery light coming from the Lamps just gives a bright feel taht refreshes and alerts the motorists passing through this Expressway in the middle of a Reclaimed area in Manila Bay.

Skywatch Friday: Open Canal

August 12, 2011 - Skywatch Friday

A Sunny sky at the Open Canal Road greets us all a warm Good Morning!

The Open Canal road stretches from Pasong Camachile in General Trias, passing through Imus and ends in Molino in Bacoor. Since this road was opened to vehicles, it has been a big cut to the travel time for Cavitenos in the Heart of the Province, going to the Dasmariñas City Area, Imus, Bacoor and Muntinlupa City in Manila.

In times of Long Heated summers, the Canal at the left part of the Photo is dry and grasses grow in it. But in rainy days, the Canals fill up and a slow current brings the Water to the Agricultural Areas of Cavite such as Imus, General Trias and Tanza.

This is a Skywatch Friday Entry and just one of the hundreds of shots from around the world! To witness other spectacular views of the Sky, Just click on the Image Link Below.

Cavitex

August 6, 2011


Photo above shows the Toll Plaza of the Cavite Expressway on Kawit, Cavite.

Inaugurated on the 27th of April, 2011, the Cavitex or Cavite Expressway marked its way to the New Cavite. Stretching from the heart of Kawit, Cavite, thru the Manila Bay and ending at Bacoor, Cavite, Cavitex cut down the Travel time from almost an hour into just 7-12 minutes from Point A to Point B. The end of the Cavitex marks the beginning of the Coastal Road which is the main link between the Province of Cavite to the National Capital Region.

This has been a phenomenal change in the lives of every Caviteño, especially those that work in Manila. Instead of Passing by the Whole of the towns of Kawit and Bacoor, The Government made an expressway built above the waters of Manila Bay which is truly of tremendous help to the Public. But for me, one of its wonderful feature is the magnificent view of the Manila Bay as you pass by Cavitex will truly capture your hearts and you will never get over it even if you pass by it every day.

Skywatch Friday: Blazing Clouds

August 5, 2011


Clouds are ablaze on an afternoon just before the Heavy Rain poured down. It was a beautiful sunset over the Gorgeous Manila Bay at the Recently Opened Cavitex Expressway that stretches from Kawit to the edge of Bacoor, Cavite opening its way entering the National Capital Region.

These Fluffy Clouds looks like a Blaze of thick grey smoke from a jet which gave a beautiful effect on the Colorful Sunset Sky.

This Skywatch Friday post is just a Single Frame of Hundreds of Snapshots of the Sky all around the Globe! To witness other spectacular views of the Sky, Just click on the Image Link Below.

Rising up after the Rain

August 4, 2011


Men started cleaning the sides of the roads and working the Mud out to clear it out of the streets while the Beautiful Green Fields and Bright Sunshine Glimmers around the Town.

People around Cavite woke up to the Sunny Daylight this Morning. All the Dark Rain clouds vanished and Clear Periwinkle Skies are in charge. Everything went back to normal even if some thing have been wrecked by the rain, as always as true Filipinos, we continue to live with a smile on our faces and take over the world like nothing happened.

I will always be proud of each and every Filpino because that is one of the things we are famous for. After each and any Storm, Earthquake, Fire, Recession, our faces never ever be out of smiles! I just hope that instead of scrutinizing each and everyone, teh Government would give even a slight focus to developing the lives of the Filipino, especially the Poor because that is what the country needs and no other Personal Matters. Corruption even of the past leaders really is a serious issue but the leaders should always put in mind that it is just a Pinch among the mountains of problems in the country!

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Mabuhay ang Pilipino! Kaya natin ito!

Lechon Kawali

August 3, 2011


Lechon Kawali is another Filipino Favorite. Made up of deep fried Pork Belly, which makes it very delicious as it is yet very very high in Cholesterol. This is different from the Philippine National Food, Lechon which is Roasted Whole Pig because this one is usually made from just the Belly of the Pork and it is Deep-Pan Fried.

Dipping Lechon Kawali in a Special Commercialized Gravy Brand Mag Tomas will make any Lechon Kawali a Kitchen Wonder. This one is also by Lola Idang's Pancit Malabon Restaurant at Dasmariñas.
