Naga City’s Three Wheeled Bumble Bees

“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).

Bicol Bloggers’ Crazy Social Media Life

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.

I think NCD saw something in me that NCD invited me to attend a blogging event dubbed as #SSSstaycation.

Frankly not to be rude, I was born a loner,
And a blogger of Photographs and Literature.
But I am fond of exploring new things,
And make some new found friends.I’m sorry for being so silent,
But I am enjoying hearing your stories components.
To tell you guys I’m not a killjoy,
My personality is reserved in a bouy.
And to win the challenge based on creativity,
I impromptu made this poem as an entry.
Oh I’m just kidding, but I thank you guys for understanding,
Bicol Bloggers from now on means family.
