This property is not for sale!

A busy day for me today. I've been organizing the hundreds and hundreds of pictures that I have took throughout the years when I suddenly found one that really gives me a kick whenever I see it. This was a picture that I took a while back with Shian (my absolutely stunning wife) after going to church. It was a residential house near our place but when you take a look at the front, it looks like vacant lot! The owners probably got sick and tired of people asking if it was available that they placed this big sign in front.

No Goodbyes

A few days ago, I got the news that Raymond Pagdanganan has already passed on. I really can't believe it at first but when I read it in the news it finally sunk in. Raymond was one of my classmates in High School, although we didn't stay in contact after we graduated, I still considered him a good friend and a nice person. I still remember when we used to play guitar then.. Wow, that was a looong long time ago.. well those were the days. With all the killings and negative news that you see everyday, you get so anesthetized that you really don't care anymore. Hey "this person was murdered by that guy"," Did you hear about that family that was chopped up by those drug addicts?" or "did you hear about that bomb that killed those soldiers in Iraq?" Hmm... Same old news, Heard that already, I really don't give a hoot. But then someone you know dies and it finally hits home. The problem with news here is that you get used to all the deaths around you that you become passive about it. This changed last Sunday when I heard that Raymond died. It reminded me that anything can happen to you at any given time. That we should always be prepared and that we must always prioritize what's really important.

'Mond, thanks for reminding me, I pray that you're well, I know we'll see each other again...

World Pyro Olympics 2007

Mall of Asia was again the site for this years World Pyro Olympics 2007 and with all the hype that we heard over the past few weeks, we finally decided to go. We went last January 7 for the Germany and United Kingdom exhibition as well as the finale last January 13 which showed China and the Philippines. Since it was our first time going there, we really didn't know what to expect. All I've been hearing about is the massive 2 hour traffic afterwards and that we have to prepare for the worst. Well, after much anticipation for our first day in the pyro Olympics, with weeks and weeks of waiting and dreaming for that day to come, finally we arrived... LATE!! haha but don't get me wrong, it was a good thing. Because we were late, we were not able to go to the site itself. You should have seen the sheer amount of cars and people come to watch the show and we were about 20 min away from the Mall! (Arg!!) So we just parked in a vacant lot nearby and had to watch the show from afar. It was nice! Actually, it was so nice that we decided to watch the last show and boy was it really worth it. So, on the day of the last show, we left at around 5pm (the show starts 8pm)and drove ourselves to the mall. The traffic was relatively lite but when we arrived, we knew right ahead that we won't be able to park inside. Lucky for us, the management was allowing people to park outside the mall.

Once we were in the Esplanade of Mall of Asia, we had to pay P100 to get inside the special viewing area and once there, you had to wait for the show to start. The Philippine show was Awesome. I was really surprised because honestly, I wasn't really expecting a good performance since the top pyro companies in the whole world is participating but we probably put out the best fireworks this year! Too bad that we're not in the contest or we could have one it hands down!

Another Year... Another Blog

Another Year... Another Blog.

Yep. This is yet another attempt to start a blog but hopefully this will be the last one. So what's different this time around? We'll this time I have something to talk about (yeah right!) No really! (I Think..?!). Anyway, I'm really excited for 2007 because it's moving time for us this year and it's not just moving to a different house. We're finally moving to the U.S! After a lot of papers, exams and a whole lot of patience and sleepless nights, we now have our visas and we'll be moving out to Albany, NY this Feb. The whole visa thing is such a unique experience and I plan to give you an idea on what you have to go through to get it but what I can say is that it's all worth it and we can't wait to take the plunge and start living our dreams as we planned it.
