62/365: Philippine Festivities in the Month of April

3rd of March

April means summer season and vacation in the Philippines!  And there’s no better season than to do adventure and explore regional places than the summer season.

April

The Lent season also falls in the month of April and the Philippines being 80% Catholic country you will notice that this month is filled with the festivities (observance) related to Lent or the “Passion of Christ”.  What I did in the list is I deleted some entries list that I think is not very unique.

  2. KSA and The Philippines has simultaneous summer season only the former has longer summer season than the latter. So many festivals yet no time to attend any of them. With festivals and summer - no wonder summer time is the best time to visit the Philippines. I don't have any favorite as the explorer in me want to experience all of them one at a time.

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping!

Happy 1st to Us! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

53,520 hits for the first 365 days and still counting! Happy 1st to us! Obviously my wish number 1 came true!  Wishes number 2, 3 and 4 are all on going.  Details will be shared on the coming posts.  Wish number 5 is definitely on and (simple) prices will be sent out!  The recipient list is done BUT! I might pick some more from this anniversary post (wink*wink*).   But again, I apologize that prices will be sent out after the holidays. I’m not Santa so I won’t say “Ho Ho Ho!” from your chimneys. Rather you might find your (private) inbox with “Can you send me your address please? Hi hi hi…”   or another question with a “hi hi hi” (lol but seriously yes). To all my readers, followers and fellow bloggers I am overwhelmed and lost for words.  THANK YOU SO MUCH to all you awesome people. Cheers to more blogoversaries! and hugs to all!
