Call it luck! Yes, it was my first time watching the Pyro Musical Contest here in Cagayan de Oro City (City of Golden Friendship). Thanks to a friend who provided us with a VIP ticket to see the fireworks at its best, especially when it is shared with family and friends.


Merry Pyro Christmas everyone!!!

WHO SAYS WORK AND PLEASURE IS LIKE TOM AND JERRY?


With voluminous workload especially during the busiest holidays of the year, an early Christmas Side Trip is creeping my way while working. It's not my first time to get to the place but it will my first to visit the CHRISTMAS SYMBOL CAPITAL OF THE PHILIPPINES located at the heart of Tangub City, Misamis Occidental. Indeed, it never cease to amaze me how artistic and creative Filipinos could be. The lights and Christmas decors used are from indigenous materials and other local crafts. I was totally in awe of its uniqueness, ingenuity and yes promoting the Filipino Christmas spirit through its craftsmanship.And i personally chosen a favorite craft as shown in the photo above. If you look closely the decors are made of coconut husks and empty bottles showing how we make Christ as the center of all our celebrations.



I climbed up with this one with my boss, and this is really so high we could feel it swinging while going up to the 4th floor (viewing deck). This one is also a personal favorite, made of Capiz Shells. When I saw this one, it felt warm and secured. It's like a pagoda only that its built on solid ground

Again, who said that work can never be mixed with pleasure? I did not say that. I enjoyed every moment of it since loving your work is also giving your self a "Selfie Time". And yes, this days, we used to call it as "LAAG DIN PAG MAY TIME"
