Lion’s head – Kennon Road, Baguio, Philippines

This is the lion’s head in Kennon Road. You can pass this thing on the major highway in going to Baguio City Philippines. I miss seeing this one when I first visited Baguio as the bus that I rode passed at the Marcos Highway. Anyway, this photo was from my cousin who visited the summer capital of the Philippines, like last year. This Lion’s head was newly painted as the color of this thing before was different.

So this is how #harambe dragged the boy who fell in the zoo. This is the clearest video that I’ve seen so far. Seeing the boy being dragged fast twice, it’s so scary.

Beautiful Kalanggaman Island in Palompon Leyte Philippines

I’ve seen a post earlier about ‘KALANGGAMAN ISLAND’ and I know it is in my dialect – Bisaya. But it is my first time hearing such name of an island. I am curious with how beautiful the white sand and the clear beach waters – I fell in love with it. I ask myself why is it that it is the first time I’ve heard about it when I am from the Visayas region. Kalanggaman Island is part of Palompon in the province of Leyte according to – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palompon,_Leyte#Kalanggaman_Island. It says this island resort has few resources, so visitors are advised to bring food, water, etc. from the mainland. Visitors can save when they will bring their own tent or they can rent some cottages. There are lots of things that a visitor can enjoy in this small but beautiful island resort, like kayaking, beach volleyball, and more.

Oh, I want to have a vacation right now! How about you? Do you like to visit this place too?

Exploring the unknown road

One of the happiest days was this travel to the unknown road. This was one of our family travels after the field trip in Castle Rock Library. We didn’t bring a GPS or map and so we were just travelling at this road until we find the interstate high way once again. I was worried a bit coz I was the one driving but my husband said to me to keep on going. It was a tough road wherein there’s no house around. There were farms and old farm houses but that was it. Thanks God we were safe back to the right road and we were safe back home.

Deluxe Independent Senior Living and retirement community

Seniors – independent living
Here in the US, I have seen many seniors who are living independently from any of their relatives. These people choose not to live with their children, friends, or any of their close relatives as they want to have a life in which they can do whatever they want. They worked hard during their younger years, saved a lot, and now that they reached the peak of their age on where they want to enjoy and have a life free of any hassles. Mostly, they do want to have a life in which they are being served and well taken care of.

Are your prepared?
Who among you are prepared to have an independent senior living? Do you want to have a life in which when you will reach your senior years, you can just do anything without making a hassle or bothering someone on all the things that you need? I guess you would love to have a life like this, huh.

Do you want to live an independent life on your senior years?
Do you? I know you want to have a life in which you can do things independently. So, as early as now, you’ve got to save so that when you will reach your senior years, you would have enough funds for your independent, luxurious, and comfy lifestyle.

Do you have relatives who want to have an independent senior living?
If you know relatives or friends who want to have independent living, do try to introduce Devonshire at PGA National. This has every luxury a senior needs for independent living in which upon retirement he/she can fully enjoy the beauties of the place every day. According to what I’ve read, this place has “26 panoramic acres of deluxe senior living” located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in which it would be owned by Erickson Living (30 years of experienced – one of the unmatched national leaders in developing and managing full-service retirement communities which is a debt-free company).

Amenities and services
For seniors and those who are retired, they can easily access the unlimited fitness and health, wellness, assisted living (if one may prefer), memory care, skilled nursing service, and rehabilitation. There is also fun of playing the beautiful golf course in this retirement community. Do you want to know more of this? If yes, do visit website or call 800-246-8444.

Playing private golf in North Carolina can be easier than you think

If you’re a golfer once you arrive at a place you’re visiting the question always becomes whether or not anyone on your party knows someone with a country club membership so you can get on the course for a few rounds. And playing private golf in North Carolina is no exceptions. The good news is once we arrived up there for our weeklong vacation and found ourselves a beautiful course we didn’t need a friend with a private membership to get us on this course.

It’s a small retirement type community called Cullasaja up in the Highland mountains near a town called Cashiers. I had never been up to this area but my wife used to come up here with her family when she was a girl and she thought we could take the family from Atlanta up to Cashiers for some rest and relaxation. Once we arrived I understood what she meant by “beautiful”. The mountains and landscape around here is absolutely breathtaking. I don’t blame her for coming up here very summer and wanting to come back for another go round this past summer.

I was worried however that there wouldn’t be a whole lot of action for the kids. Nonsense, there was plenty for the kids to do and they had a blast. I fired up the laptop and checked out the city that we planned on staying in. It’s called Cashiers and the rich history of Cashiers blew me away. What a great, quiet little town. A secret little gem that has earned a seat at the table of places that we absolutely plan on revisiting with the kids.


A good airport motel in Miami is hard find

Sometimes you have the fortune of stumbling across something amazing and recently my wife and I were on our way to the British Virgin Islands when we did. You see a hell of storm dropped down on Miami as my wife and I were in between flights on a layover. Wouldn’t you know it on the way to paradise our flight got cancelled due to this crazy storm. Well, part of you wants to just get to your final destination then there’s the rational side of your brain that says if the weather is so bad that they ground the flight then maybe you can wait on paradise for another twelve hours.

So my wife and were looking for a place relatively close to the airport. A place we could simply lay our heads until the next morning. I whipped out the old smart phone and searched “Airport Motel Miami”, saw the first result, and gave them a call. I mean why would that hotel pop up on Google if it wasn’t awesome right?

Well we checked in to our seemingly simple hotel and it was awesome. What a surprise? It was this hip, and romantic hotel very close to the airport. And even though we had to wait till the next day to catch another flight out of Miami and onto the British Virgin Islands, my wife and I started our anniversary celebration right there at our cool hotel.
