I’m quiet honored and very thankful for being one of your contributors to nagacitydeck.com which primarily aims to promote Naga City, the Bicol Region and the Philippines to the world. I myself is a proud Bikolana.
For us it means we got to eat different kind of street foods in a tight budget for several hours while having so much fun. Pili as the Capital Town in the Province of Camarines Sur, is a cradle to different kind of businesses, small to large scale trade. And one way to enjoy the market is to explore, eat and EAT!!!
My work brings me to places few people have been and a lot have read about. It’s like having a vacation for a whole year and bringing the goals and objectives of the office. Work maybe tough at times because of my figure and health condition (but I’m not sickly) but the different challenges and experiences encountered will never be replaced with anything in this world.
Now, let me take you to places I thought I cannot reach.
New Crown Hotel Naga is one of cities finest and considered as one of the pioneers in the world of hotels and fine dining in the metro. Asha Hotel started with 30 rooms, was established in 1960’s as a commercial building with a fashion school and an office alongside with Holiday Inn, Lendes Hotel, Bicolandia Hotel, Metro Hotel and Malinisa Hotel.
“Then our ride came, a yellow chubby looking vehicle like a bee perhaps. It was Naga’s famous Taxicle. The new addition to Naga’s wondrous adaptation in lessening the carbon emission in the metro and one of the safest rides you can get.”-excerpt from my Naga X Challenge post-
A dozen of these bumble bees are roaming around the city since May of 2014. For just 8 pesos, it will bring you to your next destination without any hassle, unlike those choosy tricycles that sometimes force you to pay the whole one way travel of their vehicle. It can also be rented for 150 pesos per hour and has a seating capacity of 8 to 9 persons, perfect for the family and your next barkada get away to any point in Naga (even at Panicuason).
Its day two of our SSSstaycation.
As I was saying in my previous post, the coziness of the bed at New Crown Hotel was pulling me in. If I could lay down a little bit longer or for the whole day, but there were many things to be done.
Exactly one week today, something happened that I will never forget for the rest of my life.
I personally blog about Literature & Photography which is I think waaaaaay primitive. I am also a shy type, loner and I don’t talk too much.
Naga City Deck (NCD) has been encouraging me to blog about my work and just for once I have contributed an article about Woodstone Kitchen last October where NCD provided the title, for composing it is my weakness. I think NCD saw something in me that NCD invited me to attend a blogging event dubbed as #SSSstaycation. It was Sole Searching Soul’s first year anniversary and the attendees are the influential bloggers of Bicol. The excitement was unbearable because as we all know (who wouldn’t) Naga City Deck, Sole Searching Soul and Nickastig were big influencers in promoting Naga City and Bicol thru their social sites.
