Post Event Piece: Best Food Forward–A Blast!

“Would you like to taste our Paella? I would be honored if you taste our Paella” That is one among the appetizing and delicious offer from one of the exhibitors at the Best Food Forward event . And when I tasted their Paella, I almost forgot my name LOL! Seriously, I tasted a number of great tasting paella but this one is sooo unforgettable!  And so do with all the food we tasted on this event. All the best food came forward at the NBC Tent last March  24 and 25, 2012.  We were there during the second day and here’s sharing to you some photos that will speak for themselves. photo booth – obviously we had a blast!

Sunday Quote and Photograph: You Don’t Raise Heroes, You Raise Sons

My BIRTHDAY! How Did it Go?

This should be a post during the “all about me” week, but I was undecided if I will share this or not.  Until today I was looking for a draft post and accidentally found this untitled draft which is about how I spent my birthday.  Hmn… not a bad draft I thought so I’m sharing it now.  I’m not re-editing, so it will sound like I was talking last week. Also you will find that all photographs are all “dated”.  Here how it goes on my last week writing about my birthday …  As almost everybody know by now, I’m the blogger runner behind the Run! and Keep on Running blog, which if you click that link, you will know how I started my day.  Yep, I started my day the way I started it last year. I run! A morning run is regular for me but I’m putting on extra miles this week because I’m running my first 16K this weekend.  That’s the pros and cons of running on your birthday week.  The pros is it keeps you disciplined and the cons is that you can’t do weird things (which I love to do on my bir

Final Night: 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition–Italy and Philippines

All roads lead to Mall of Asia (MOA) on the night of March 17, 2012.   As expected, there's heavy traffic everywhere.  I read a lot of (online) comments from the usual people who are covering the event every Saturday that they were trapped in traffic for hours and not being able to get a good spot to video or photograph the event and a lot more similar complaints.  Well what could you expect? Aside from the fact that it was the final night and the last chance to witness this spectacular event, it is also the night that this year’s winner will be announced.  More so, it is also the night that the host country, our dear Philippines is presenting their exhibition entry.  Knowing Filipinos, we are very supportive to anything that our country is representing to international competitions/shows, plus! we are all fireworks lovers and everybody is certain that our entry will always be one of the best. And the winner is…. whoops, first let us take a look on the videos of tonight’s entry

Sunday Quote and Photograph: It is not age; It is not diet.

The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You always go too far for your body. You must handle the pain with strategy... It is not age; it is not diet. It is the will to succeed. Jacqueline Gareau (1980 Boston Marathon Champ) Photo taken at Buendia (Sen. Gil Puyat) Avenue flyover while running on my 8th kilometer trail for my first 16-kilometer run.  My birthday run.  The first eight kilometers includes up hills and down hills at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and I have to tackle this flyover twice. The first time was coming from BGC Taguig when I took this photo.  The second time was after running two more kilometers at the turn around and it is more elevated than the first. I honestly did not anticipate the flyover run.  I usually just peek at the map before the run.  I take note of the vicinities that I will be passing by but not the details of the road.  I don’t want the map to motivate or unmotivate me.

3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition–Australia and Canada

We’re now on the fifth installment from this series of posts for the 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition, and this is the second to the last installments.  First, you may want to take another look on the videos of the first four entries: Korea and Malta (competition schedule is also on this post) United Kingdom and Spain Finland and Portugal China and Netherlands Tonight's competition covers the entry from Australia and Canada, so let’s take a peek in the videos of these two entries: Australia – Fireworkx Inc. Entry from the Australia (acknowledgment to ArBeshPH for the video uploaded to YouTube) Wow! There was a lot of “ohs and ahs” there when Australia’s entry danced to “Eye of the Tiger” and it definitely captured the hearts of the audience with its cute smileys and hearts popping to the tune of Mambo Number 5. And the fireworks really look “romantic” while gracefully dancing to “Speaks Softly Love”. Canada – Fireworks Spectacular En

Sunday Song and Photographs: She’s Always A Woman

(You are tagged!  You need to finish reading this post!) She can kill with a smile She can wound with her eyes She can ruin your faith with her casual lies And she only reveals what she wants you to see She hides like a child, But she's always a woman to me She can lead you to love She can take you or leave you She can ask for the truth But she'll never believe you And she'll take what you give her, as long as it's free Yeah, she steals like a thief But she's always a woman to me CHORUS: Oh--she takes care of herself She can wait if she wants She's ahead of her time Oh--and she never gives out And she never gives in She just changes her mind And she'll promise you more Than the Garden of Eden Then she'll carelessly cut you And laugh while you're bleedin' But she'll bring out the best And the worst you can be Blame it all on yourself Cause she's always a woman to me --Mhmm-- Bridge CHORUS: Oh--s
