Great Taste White: Choose Great Win Great Raffle Promo

August 11, 2015 was a big day for me. Well it’s my birthday and things got more exciting when I was invited together with my Bicol Bloggers family and local media men in a regional launching.
Ever heard of “Great Taste” coffee???

Yes, they’re one of the best coffee brands in the Philippines manufactured and distributed by Universal Rubina Corporation(URC).

I thought that Great Taste White was the sole blend of the brand: a smooth and creamy variety but I was wrong. Say hello to these…

From left to right. Great Taste White 3in1 Smooth & Creamy, Great Taste White 3in1 Smooth & Chocolatey, Great Taste White 3in1 Smooth & Caramelley and Great Taste White 3in1 Sugarfree.

Wanderlust: W(a)(o)ndering Where in Bicol?

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.

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).

Tatay Bert was our Naga X Challenge Taxicle driver, what a jolly man.

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.

An Ode to thy Brave Countrymen

Damp soil soaked with blood from thy brave countrymen,

Who only want to seek peace,but had died in the end.

Who to blame? The terrorists as everybody said so,

Which only believes that war just come and go.

Families’ mourn to the death of thy love ones,

While rebels rejoice to the feat they have won.

No compassion they have killed them one by one,

No mercy, No regrets, No God to see them hum.

What was their purpose on doing such hideous thing?

Bombs and guns were used as bling-bling,

Pointed, thrown at their so called enemies.

The truth is even not in blood they are brothers,

Countrymen that does not need to be conquerors.

They ask for justice, they ask for revenge,

They want the killers to be at the edge.

They want them to suffer, they want them to plea,

They want them in jail or worse their souls in hell.

The lives will not return, the smiles will not be shown,

Their families will forever mourn.

As to what might happen to the upcoming days,

I cannot tell or it will be just fate.

God has plans that we cannot alter, so we pray for Him to vanish evil forever.
