A Farewell to Summer


In the Philippines, we have three seasons - hot, hotter, and hottest. We are about to bid goodbye to the hottest season as we start to welcome more and more rains. Kidding Aside, the two seasons are actually wet and dry. August usually opens the typhoon and monsoon seasons where a lot of typhoons start to trace its path coming from the Pacific.

This beautiful Bouganvillea are the last reminders of the long sunny afternoons as the torrential rains that visited us last weekend just melted most of them. Stay dry Cavite, we still have a pandemic (record high) to fight!

Masked Rider

Masked Rider, General Trias

On this new normal, everyone here in the province of Cavite is highly encouraged to wear a mask. It's nice to see a large percentage of citizens complying, knowing that they do care not just for themselves but also for the people around them.

Red Velvet

Dragonfly, Amadeo 

I may be a big guy but I honestly am afraid of bugs, especially those with wings. But this one sure looks beautiful so I braved myself and got my phone camera and took a shot of it. It was just resting there and allowed me to take a photograph of her. Isn't she lovely? 

Does anybody know what type of Dragonfly this is?

Economic Zone

Cavite Economic Zone

Located on a large area that is shared by Rosario and General Trias, the Cavite Economic Zone is the bread and butter of hundreds of thousands of employees. A lot of manufacturing plants and offices are housed in this zone. At the moment, most office personnel are still working at home, but the manufacturing plants are on-going operations, some with safety precautions like shuttles and protective gears provided.

Jungle Flashbacks

Nipa Jungles, Indang

This photo is not very old, in fact, I took it just 10 years ago with my already digital camera. But I don't know why it just finished this way, and when I saw this on my old files, I thought I'd share it to you all. The town of Indang is located in the upland part of Cavite, and up until now, it has maintained quite a big portion of it's natural rainforest and jungle areas just like this one. Most of them are privately owned and it's very nice that they choose to maintain it's jungle feel even if they build their houses within them.

Bird's Nest Fern

Antonia's Garden, Amadeo

The bird's nest fern is an epiphytic type of fern that grows on big or old trees. In Tagalog, it is called "dapo" or literally means "to perch" or "perched". It is a beautiful tropical plant that reminds me of lush rainforests that when added to gardens, will instantly bring a very lush feeling to it. They grow leaves that are so long and broad which almost resembles banana leaves.

Have you seen these species of plants near your area?


You can drop by Antonia's Garden along the highway at Brgy. Banay-Banay, Amadeo, Cavite. You can also visit their Facebook Page at and also on their Instagram Account @AntoniaGardenPH.

Over The River

Bridge over Santa Rosa, Noveleta

As this river divides two barangays (town/city sub-division smaller than the city) in the A bridge above it connects the two. Without this bridge, people from the right side have to travel more than 5 kilometers at the town proper just to go to the other side. At the same time, people going to Manila from the upland towns cut a big portion of their travel time because of this link. Aren't bridges wonderful?
