Choosing Your Web Host Through Reviews

>> Wednesday, December 30, 2009

With the modern innovations that keep on coming and reaching us you also have to be on the go when it comes to studying current technology so you won’t be left behind. This is a generation of short messages but long working hours. But this is also the generation where kids show exemplary performance in education and skills in computer know-how. Somehow it keeps me thinking that it has some disadvantage as the younger generation becomes lazy in their studies as they want everything easily researched and easily done.

As I’ve graduated from Computer Engineering course I find it easy to adjust to technical works and modern technology though I also have to study further to keep up with the current trends. This has helped me a lot when I entered this online world and I was able to use some of my knowledge in blogging. I was hooked up to writing when I was still studying but prefer to take up a different field of study to ensure good opportunities in finding job as my course is one of the most in-demand course during my time.

Blogging has been a way for me to write and share my experiences and inspirational thoughts and through this I was able to meet some really nice online friends. When I finally realized that I really enjoy blogging I immediately bought my own domain to enjoy the full grasp of being a blogger. I’ve chosen my web host through reading reviews like GoDaddy Review which discusses its features, capabilities, reliability, support and many other things that tells the good service that the web host is capable of. Actually it’s not only review that I read that got me into buying domain from them but a recommendation from my friend. I can say now that it’s all worth it because GoDaddy not only offer affordability but high quality service as well. No need to worry about redirecting your domain as they have user-friendly tools, good technical support and accommodating customer service. I can honestly say this as I have two of my blogs hosted by them and I didn’t experience any problem with them. I’m a satisfied customer.

Adjustment to Changing Weather

My niece is having some uncomfortable moments whenever it’s too cold or too hot, she seems to have some hardship in adjusting to extreme weather. Just now she’s sneezing and starting to have coughs because she was exposed to cold air at night when she goes home after work. I told her that it’s better to stay at home for few days until she’s well. Now she’s slowly adjusting to changing weather and was happy to find the best allergy relief whenever she has some skin allergy all over her face and body.

Better Opportunities

>> Monday, December 28, 2009

Back to work now after the fellowship vacation which gave me new energy and strength to face daily challenges and problems. We arrived Sunday night but I didn’t do my online tasks right away I just checked my emails and started my tasks only tonight. It’s just that the holiday season is taking up so much of my time that my schedule is up to my neck. I’m glad that I didn’t have to report to my office after my holiday vacation because I’m just working at home and I can plan my own schedule of working just like what I’m doing now.

I find myself lucky with my present situation now and I’m sharing it with my friends who are looking for new jobs now outside the country. They heard some good paying work in jobs philadelphia and they want to try their luck abroad. It’s a normal story here in our place when employees can’t seem to get to augment their financial status. They think that working abroad can help their lives get better even if it would mean sacrifice of not seeing their families for years.

Better Bathrooms for Your Homes

>> Thursday, December 24, 2009

As we’re heading to our church camp meeting in Cavite we checked all sections and corners of the house for safe precautions just in case we miss electrical plugs or phones currently charging. Anyway it’s not as if there’s nobody in the house for the long holidays as there will be some family members that will stay in our house while we’re away. We just want to assure ourselves that we’re leaving the house safe and sound. Everything is fine and in good condition because we just had some renovation in the house and my brother’s workers checked everything that need repairs. The renovation includes our bathroom which is more like a construction as it’s so bare. Another project that we had is our fences and gates which was destroyed because of the recent road widening.

We’re happy with the results because the workers who worked for us seem very well concentrated on doing a very nice job. What I like most on the past few weeks’ work was our bathroom renovation as this part of the house is really important and can give you so much comfort. Before the renovation I’ve browsed online for some ideas and I’m glad that I’ve found BetterBathrooms.com which provides selection of BathroomSuite, furniture, shower systems, fixtures and more. They’re now offering great deals on their stock clearance sale of bathroom suites and they give 20% off on bathroom tiles upon purchase of their bathroom suite. Wow that’s really quite a deal and for a quality product. Anyway our bathroom is still on the finishing touches and I could add some nice furnishings from them!

Away for the Holidays!


We're getting ready for our long travel and I've spent the last few days preparing for our things and essentials as we'll be staying in far place away from the bustling city of Metro. As I'm writing this we're packing our bags, food and clothings. We'll be staying in Villa Dominga Forest Resort in Indang, Cavite and we'll be sleeping on tents. In a few hours we'll head off South of Luzon and spend our four days in the camp. Friends I'll be visiting you next week. I wish you all peace, love and happiness this Christmas.

Getting Ready for the Long Travel

>> Monday, December 21, 2009

Few days from now we’ll be heading to our camp site on the highlands of Indang, Cavite near Tagaytay City and we’re so happy that despite of not having our car restored to its normal state we were able to hire my brother’s extra car. It’s actually a better one as it’s a pickup car that’s so perfect to carry heavy loads and if you can imagine our essentials, food, beddings and clothings for a four-day stay at the camp you would probably say that it’s the best to carry on long and heavy baggage travel.

Last Sunday our church mate who knows a lot about car maintenance checked and fixed our break, tail and park lights. We’ve also noticed a not-so good wiper so we’re also fixing them up. We should be thinking and checking all possible fixing as we don’t want to catch trouble on the road. We always follow the blow bag rule which is the acronym that stands for checking up battery, lights, oil, water, brake, air (for tires) and gasoline whenever we travel for long distance destination. It’s also best if we can have travel insurance for a safer and worry-free travel local and international.

:Food Friday - Spareribs in Milk

>> Friday, December 18, 2009

This is one of my favorite part of the pork meat, the spareribs and this recipe is just one of the many recipes you can make out of spareribs. It's simple to cook this. You only saute spices, put on the meat and add coconut milk and the usual sat, pepper and msg. Well the rest is up to you if you want to add some veggies.

My Mom used to cook this one for us back when we were younger and up to when she's strong enough to cook for us. She's not that frail or weak now but we just told her that it's better if she rest on cooking. Actually upon telling her that she seems happier that I can take upon her duty in the family to cook lol! And when I say cook I mean cooking on occasions also including cooking for 50-100 people when the need arises. Well it's ok as cooking is one of my stress therapy and one of my favorite hobbies.

Happy Food Friday to all, see other yummy foods here!

Best Value Replacement Windows

Our home is where our heart is so we take every step possible to make it strong, durable and pleasant to live in. It’s where we build our families and dreams so it’s just right to make it the most comfortable and convenient place for us. We should maintain it to its best condition and make an effort to protect it from damaging elements like age, abandonment, misuse and natural calamities. Our house was built decades ago and was renovated in late 70’s and due to its old age we always checked for fixtures to replaced, wood to be treated and parts of the house to be replaced. We’re lucky that almost third part of it was built in stone thus saving us some maintenance cost of keeping wood materials in perfect condition. But even if it’s built of stone there are the usual maintenance and replacement of windows, doors, tiles and various fixtures.

Technology has made renovation and maintenance simpler by its modern innovations and there are many companies that strive hard to attain perfection in home building especially in windows. There are things to consider in buying them such as determining specifically your requirements and needs.

Excellent Way to Warm Up Your Towels

>> Wednesday, December 16, 2009

We recently had a bathroom renovation in our house and my brother who was in charge of the renovation brought me along to a home depot where we picked all our needed bathroom accessories and fixtures. It was an exciting shopping for me as it’s my first time to be there. It’s actually hard to choose especially when there are lots of stylish designs for our needed bowl, tiles, lavatory and many accessories that go with the package. I’ve found myself glued to the home depot display of bathroom showcase. I’ve been talking to my brother about having two choices and he laughed that I’m having second mind on my desired design, blame it on their wide range of products.

I’m really impressed with the recent bathroom fixtures these days as they’re really improving through the years. My brother told me that lately many companies are bringing new innovations on bathroom furniture and fixtures. Many of these products have been very useful to customers like Towel Warmers which is not only practical to have in your bathroom but added an extra style to your bathroom interior. Electric towel warmers are an excellent way to keep your towels warm and dry. You can also use it on your small dainty wears if you need it dry them fast.

If you ever have a need for these very useful towel warmers you can visit QualityBath.com where you can find various styles of towel warmers. If you care about brands they have top brands like Rohl, Quality Brands, Amba, Jeeves towel warmers, Warma, Myson Towel Warmers and many more.

Of course if you want to install towel warmers in your bathroom you would have some considerations on some things like do we need hydroponic or electric? There’s a difference between the two. Or do you want it wall mounted, floor mounted, free standing or portable? Whatever requirements, questions or concerns you may have to ask or want to know the answer you can easily read their buyer’s guide and resources. It will serve as your guidelines on choosing the right one for you and deciding which style suits your bathroom or which brand is perfect for your holiday gift. Take a look at one of their top selling products, Jeeves towel warmer which also caught my attention and want to add it to my newly renovated bathroom. Looks good don’t you think?

Reminders for Camp Meeting

>> Monday, December 14, 2009

At the church we talked about our incoming camp meeting at Indang, Cavite and we’re all excited about coming back to Villa Dominga Forest Resort where we’ll spend four days of the holiday season in fellowship services. We noted all necessities, priorities, things to bring, food to prepare, transportation, instruments and many other things to be reminded of. Of course for the Mommies we care about our family’s food and clothes and I’m thinking if my bags are enough for our four-day baggage.

Now that my two girls are fast growing up they can’t share their bag, they have their own separate luggage unlike when they were toddlers. I’m seeing some bags which I’ll buy for our December fellowship. I’ve seen some quality suitcases, luggage and bags and I’m thinking what’s the best buy among them, I saw some Samsonite, Kipling, Rimowa and many other brands. I should not be choosing from what I like only but by their style, quality and most importantly the price. I should always remind myself that I’m a smart buyer.

Learning and Improving Her Craft

>> Saturday, December 12, 2009

I had a chat with my architect friend few weeks ago and she’s informing me of the latest updates of her works. She decided to leave her regular employment in consultancy firm to concentrate on contracting her own residential and building projects. She didn’t want to be employed for a long time because she really wanted to make it on her own, to have her own construction firm. Now she ventured into international business having her clients in Dubai and nearby cities. She was very happy on her accomplished dream and she told me about her gained knowledge on her present projects. She should know every modern technology on construction business so she can apply them on her projects locally and internationally.

She excitedly told me that all of her knowledge in our previous company has helped her a lot in dealing with engineers and clients. Now that construction have advanced technologically she’s learning all modern techniques in building construction like using insulated concrete forms to construct building and residential grade walls and basement. There are lots of things to be learned and she’s looking forward to know all of those things that will help her improve her knowledge.

Dental Health is Very Important

Last month I accompanied my daughter Gen to our dentist for a general dental checkup because she’s complaining of a toothache. Well if you can see her teeth it’s as if they’re all perfectly alright. When we finally arrived at the clinic and started the checkup we were informed that Gen had to undergo some light cure fillins on some of her teeth and the tooth that she’s complaining about can’t be treated anymore, it should be extracted. I had her teeth generally cleaned with special fluoride treatment for further protection against decay. Generally the lady dentist told us that she has a very nice set of teeth and she should take good care of them carefully.

We really should take care of our children’s dental health because if we do they’ll have stronger teeth when they grow older. But with the current rate for dental services this is quite hard on the budget so it’s best if we have a dental plan to save some money and use it as often as need it. When it comes to looking for a good dental plan you can get it the services of Ameriplan, provider of not just dental plan but that of health package,total health, basic wellness and some other medical plan as well.

You can save a lot of money when you choose Ameriplan because all their packages offer great savings of up to 80% on some of their services. They have packages for individuals and for families or anyone living in one house and they provide a good discount plan for it. No need to worry about availability of services of dentists as it has more than 30,000 dentists around the country. This is really super savings and answer all dental problems, no need to get another insurance.

Good Progress in Healthy Diet

>> Thursday, December 10, 2009

I was happy with my progress in losing weight as my cravings for sweets and fatty foods decreases. Well except for chocolate of course because I still eat dark chocolate with moderation. The package from my SIL didn’t help as it arrived last week and it consisted of my favorite chocolate brands. Anyway they say dark chocolate is not bad so I’m not guilty.

I’ve learned that proper diet is not skipping meals but eating your meals light and properly. It’s fine to eat rice if your viand is vegetable or fish. I’m eating my vegetables double the serving of rice so half a cup of rice with a cup of veggies is just right for a healthy diet. Try to eat fruits before your meal because by the time you’ve eaten your fruits you’re not anymore that hungry, it works for me! I eat full meal at breakfast but very light at dinner and early at night before 7pm.

Well that’s few of the things I’ve done with my meals coupled with walking around our compound after every break at blogging and it made me loose some inches on the belly. I’m still miles away from my desired weight but I’m happy that my efforts and discipline are working for me. Now even if my friend suggested two months ago that I take natural weight loss pills I think I don’t need it right now. I can still manage to do it on my own plan.

What’s the Next Project?

>> Wednesday, December 9, 2009

I’m glad that we’ve finally finished our project no. 2 in the house which is the fence and gate construction. We just have to add some nice grills to harmonize and balance the overall design. Now we’re thinking what should be our next project which we’ll start next year. I have the master bedroom renovation project still hanging in my list and the replacement of our ground floor tiles.

We’ll think about what’s more urgent then we’ll choose among the two. As for the replacement of our vinyl floor tiles I’ve searched a lot online and offline for the materials and I found some nice tiles in different type and design including that of granite tile which is also used for offices because of its durability. Well I have to think, compare prices and check my allocated budget before choosing. I don’t want to spend all my money on it. I must have some savings left for my next project.

I ♥ Faces - "Sweet Dreams" Photo Challenge

>> Tuesday, December 8, 2009

This week’s photo challenge theme is: "Sweet Dreams"

This is my son Josh when he was just 3 months old. I just love this picture of him innocently sleeping like that's the only thing he wants to do. With arms stretched up he really got what he want - a sound sleep and maybe 'sweet dreams'. Now that he's 6 years old already he still sleeps the same way as when he's only 3 months old.

Customized Stickers

It’s important in every business to have your own logo, label or something that people will remember when they see it. It’s also one way of advertising certain products, services or even companies. Customers have a way of looking for specific label on every product they buy. They seem to buy the same products if they’re satisfied with it so it’s really a must to have something that will be recognized instantly. It’s some kind of product identification that people will look for every time they want to purchase again. And it must be attractive, unique and clear enough for easy identification.

Now these stickers are available online and for best presentation you can choose custom stickers to fit your specific standards, style and requirements. You can visit Mavericklabel.com, a custom label resource for barcode levels, outdoor and indoor labels and many other label and sticker requirements.

What Does Your Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Say About You?

I love sandwiches especially when I have many fillings on it. I like to experiment on combinations that's why I like double sandwiches, i can actually have it for lunch.

Your PB and J Says You're Demure and Dainty

Your eating style is reserved. You are a bit of a fussy eater, and you have very specific ways you like your food prepared.

You have an average sweet tooth. While you enjoy desserts, they aren't exactly your downfall.

Your taste in food tends to be quite eclectic and wide. You are an adventurous eater, and you like many types of cuisines.

Admit it, you're a little trashy and low class at times. You're definitely more comfortable at a tattoo parlor than the theater.

You never really grew up. While your childlike innocence is charming, you often just come across as a big baby.

Precise and controlled, you can be a bit anal retentive when it comes to how you like things. You're definitely a perfectionist.

He's Enough to Make Me Feel Better!

>> Monday, December 7, 2009

I’m feeling a little bit dizzy after last night’s overnight. I had few tasks to finish and when I’ve submitted them all I realized that I had less than an hour to sleep before my regular waking time. I decided to continue with my work and deprived myself of sleep because in less than one hour I have to cook and assist my girls before their service picks them up. I’m an early riser and if I worked up to 3am my desire to sleep will vanish. So it’s before 3am or not to sleep. I decided on the latter that’s why I’m dizzy but still I can’t sleep.

To forget about my not so good feeling of dizziness and nausea I went to grocery and market near Josh’ school and just before they finish their school time I was there outside his room waiting for him. He’s surprised and happy that I’m there, also with some of his fave foods and drinks. That's how I remedied my sickness, just a smile from my baby is enough to make me feel better :-)

Vacation Break from Daily Life Routine

>> Sunday, December 6, 2009


Sometimes we tend to spend almost all of our time on our work and household matters that we neglect our duties as husband and wife to each other. It’s really a common situation especially if you have a busy work schedule and plenty of kids to attend to. Your work and daily stress also add up to make matters worse. It seems like you’re just living on a daily life routine nothing new and of course nothing special to look forward to. It’s not a matter of how much you love your kids or how much time you want to spend with them it’s just that couples should really take some time off from life’s daily problems and worries in order to reflect and revive the value of their relationship.

It’s very important for couples to have a break from monotonous program of life or they’ll end up looking for other diversions. And for a break I would suggest a week vacation in one of the most romantic vacation places in Mexico. Karisma Hotels offers a romantic vacation riviera maya, a truly exciting vacation with white sandy beach, excellent accommodations, perfect gourmet foods, nice entertainment, spa services and many other things to enjoy on a vacation with your partner or with the whole family. It can be a dream vacation for couples and families.

Busy on Weekends

I’m always running out of time on weekends because there’s always something to do and my powers can’t beat my scheduled works. My kids seems so tired after a week-long studying and they’re taking advantage of their day off from school to watch their favorite shows on cable and on DVD. I’m not that well also but I have to be strong for my kids as they suddenly felt hot this evening. They suddenly had a fever and I’m just lucky that my Mom was very patient in her massage therapy with her grand kids, they’re feeling a lot better now.

Car Reviews to Help Us

I’ve learned from my sister who works for a well-known car dealer that a lot of car companies were affected by the global economic crisis and some of the makers of known cars have temporarily stopped operation. She was relieved that despite the crisis their company and supplier have maintained their financial stability and demand for new cars has not stopped until now. Economic crisis has different effects on business and people. Some companies have no choice but to close down to stop further financial breakdown while others patiently waited for the sales comeback and survived the crisis without closing down.

Despite this crisis many still demand for the newest model of their favorite car companies and searching for the best cars is still their hobbies. Well for those who wants some guidelines in buying cars there’s a site for car reviews where reviews can be found on specific cars they want. It’s imperative that before buying a car one should take all necessary information and specifications, after all cars are so expensive that we should think not only twice and thrice but a lot more times.


If you’re looking for car reviews you can browse through TheCarConnection.com so you can read reviews on Ford, BMW, Lexus, acura, Honda and many other cars. Be informed of their prices together with their capabilities compared to other cars. I just read about 2009 Acura RL and found out that it’s one of the safest, dependable and comfortable transport for everyone. It may not be the best in looks but technology wise it's better than others.

Gifts for the Little Boys


I can feel the air of Christmas with the gush of wind when I go out of my house. With the lights and never ending decors on the malls there’s no doubt that holidays are coming. In this time of hard economic situation people try to forget about poverty, unemployment and bad news on television. Almost all people are thinking about how they can make their loved ones happy this coming holiday season. One way of making our friends and family happy is by giving them our love and expressing it by way of gifts. Actually many would agree that majority of our gifts are for the kids.

I don’t have problem with my gift for the girls but when it comes to boys I sometimes find it hard to think. If you’re like me who have a hard time thinking of gifts for the little boys you could try giving them a set of NFL Jerseys which is very appropriate for kids aged 4-10 years old. They will surely love those uniform sets especially that it comes with a complete set of 0-9 iron on numbers. I can just imagine how it will bring so much excitement and happiness to those kids. You can order it online for only $39.99 with a set that includes pants, pad, mask, helmet and many other accessories. Just choose among the different NFL teams and pick the kid’s favorite.

Function and Beauty in One Room

>> Thursday, December 3, 2009

We always want our offices to look like very corporate and devoid of too much clutter. Most offices especially conference rooms I entered in looks the same with their sleek design, formal wall and ceiling colors. It’s great to have beautiful and elegant rooms but it should also has functions of its own and what’s better than having to use the walls as communication board where you can post your ideas, suggestions, marketing goals, sales achievements and many other things that perks up our imaginative mind. I really think that having Custom Bulletin Board will enrich communication among employees and will make any room like lounge and reception an enjoyable place for waiting.

North Sculpture has made this possible by offering fabric bulletin boards that can specifically suit your preferred style, size, shape and color. With this kind of walls I can see a combination of beauty, comfort, usability and function all in one good looking customized bulletin board. You can also use it as room divider, some kind of decoration and for organizing all your office stuff so it will create a very organized place to work. With its valuable use and flexibilities I can say that beautiful customized bulletin boards are a great thing to have. For more wonderful ideas and information visit BulletinBoardpanels.com and chose from among the wide range of fabric colors.

Our Town's 438th Founding Anniversary

Our town celebrated 438th anniversary last Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 and as always the parade composed of representatives from schools, offices, establishments, NGOs, government employees and various sectors. It took more than an hour before the parade was finished and the whole place was congested of vehicles and people.

I still long for the grand parades several years ago when almost all participants had their own planned presentation on the road. We’re always looking forward for Nov. 30 parade then and missing it was such a great loss because it was really beautiful. Well time and season changes everything and maybe it’s the present economic condition that affect traditions. I just thank God that after the big flood the people of our town successfully moved on from the disastrous event that happened two months ago. God is good all the time….

:Food Friday - Banana-Q

>> Friday, November 27, 2009

I've posted here one of Pinoy's favorite everyday snack 'banana-q' and almost everyone love it or other saba banana variations such as maruja, turon and saba fritters. Sometimes they cooked saba in caramel syrup and put milk and crushed ice to make Saba con Hielo. It's easy to do this one as you'll only deep fry banana in oil and put brown sugar in it until it gets syrup and covered the whole banana. Then just put a stick in the center and voila you have a yummy banana-q!

Patience and Temperance Helped Me

>> Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Most of the times we really need to stay cool whenever hot situation arises. I just don’t know why some people don’t know the proper ethics of good manners in corporate environment. I dislike people who don’t have backbones to stand to their mistakes and blame on innocent people who are not anymore in the loop... During my employment days I always tell my staff not to put blame on others who were not anymore employed in the company whenever they were put into not-so good situation with the boss. It’s alright to mention responsibilities but to completely put the blame on resigned employees is a no-no. They should take responsibilities for their job and if it’s not their fault try to think of ways to explain to superiors that it’s not them who handled it but will try to solve the problem in whatever way you can possibly do.

In my several years of working I can’t remember a single situation where I put my colleague in a bad light especially with my boss as sometimes your jurisdiction may tarnish an innocent person. We should be careful with the words we say because it might ruin someone’s reputation and if the words were said already you can’t put it back. With situation like this I really need patience and temperance to guide my thoughts as I’m only human and as a human I can’t stop myself from feeling hurt and disappointed over trusted colleagues that let me down.

Spend Your Vacation in Egypt!

>> Monday, November 23, 2009


My SIL is a very hardworking woman and after a year-long overwork she would spend vacation on wherever her fancies may take her. Because she lives in Great Britain and she miss the tropical country where she was born she always spend her vacation by the beach mostly here in the Philippines or in some countries with splendid beach vacation package. She loves traveling to different places where she can really see magnificent view and rest her tired body in a beach vacation house. I keep thinking that maybe all working individuals are the same in some ways that after working so hard they really need some break from it.

It’s a kind of relaxation for employees and workers when they spend some days or week away from the bustling city of business districts. Since we can’t have full resting time in our house we should take our vacation away from home. I learned from SIL that it’s great to spend vacation in Egypt as the weather there is great with an all-year round sunshine and plenty of tourist spots. Actually they’ve spent a month vacation there four years ago and been planning to be back again. Anyway you can take advantage of their cheap Egypt Holidays when you booked for May, June, November and December. You can be sure to have affordable flights and accommodations.

There are many ways on how you can keep within your budget limit as it’s very affordable to eat in the restaurants there. You can just book for just a bed and your breakfast and spend the whole day and evening visiting valley of the kings, the very famous Pyramids of Egypt and have dinner in superb rest. If you’re the sporty type you can join the golf courses or have some scuba diving. Great vacation for all types of people. Well just visit ULookUBook and book your dream Eqypt holiday now!

Car Problem

>> Thursday, November 19, 2009

We’re having second thoughts on our car mechanic because he just keeps on delaying our schedule for the car repair. I really want to know if he’s going to repair our car or we’ll just have other repair shop pick it up. Days are quickly passing by and we need it in good shape for our long travel for December camp meeting. I also need it to be ready for its yearly auto insurance early next year. I’m discussing this problem with my sister and hubby and they agreed to have the car picked up by another repair shop though it’s more expensive that way.

:Thursday Challenge - "Music"

"MUSIC" (Guitar, Playing an Instrument, Things that make sounds, iPods,
Sheet Music, Noisy Things,...)

This is my entry for this week's theme of Thursday Challenge's Music. This is a wooden statue of a Filipino native playing a native musical instrument made of bamboo. The natives don't buy musical instruments in the past, if they want to have music they make their own musical instruments which for me is very ingenius and resourceful.

This shot was taken in the entrance area of Manila Zoo during my daughters' educational tour.
