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.
Aside from vanilla and strawberry, one of my favorite is coffee.
Yes I know, it’s bitter. Let’s be honest, the comfort you can get from it replaces the bitter taste into something new, refreshing and rejuvenating.
There were quiet a number of coffee shops in the city of Naga, some of them had already closed and this newly opened cafe takes the risks. The owner, Ms. Shai is very young and talented in the art of cooking even though she didn’t have the formal education on culinary. She is very hands-on with her business and is quiet busy in the kitchen. Yes, she prepares every order with care, passion and finesse to assure that the cafe gives only the best to its costumers.
The Coffee Pod Cafe opened last March 15, 2015. Its pastel colored features from the outside invites goers to take a sneak, a sip and enjoy the rest of their stay that will surely make you come back for more.
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.
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,
