Wow! Batanes, a dreamlike place I wish I could also visit someday. In my book, it's what I call: Isle of View. He he.... Of course, I love the Philippines! The smiles enhance the beauty of it all. Thanks for sharing the photos. Perhaps, you can write more about the people and the place.

It takes Faith to ENJOY

To all fellow workaholics and small spenders this entry is for you! I am about to embark on a journey to the unknown.. I am going on Vacation! Yes! I dont really go on vacations.. most of my trips are family organized, school activities, and of course work related! Meaning i dont really spend for it. These free vacations end up being fun but i guess it starts off as an obligation.. My travel starts off with a gig in the following places: 1. Hong Kong on December 16-18.

Guam Trip

Guam was like a family reunion for me.. i have loads of cousins and little newphews and nieces who live in guam.. I also have a very good japanese dive instructor who happens to own Papalagi dive shop in guam and a chain of dive shops in tokyo (he was in tokyo when we were in guam.) Anyways the trip was special because of family. Il post family pictures as soon as i get copies. The metro pacific group (producers of the show) treated us like family too!! It was cute to see the group which is composed of married men, be the leaders of the whole project. The wives really supported thier husbands. Truly, the show was a sucess because there was a flow of authority and unity within the group. Here are some pictures.. Lunch at the Marriot with Sitti, Kitchie and Mrs. Margie Nadal Kitchie's mommy :) We stayed at the Sheraton Resort Hotel! It was great! The food was super yummy and the place was so nice and clean.. we thank the metro pacific guys and wives for taking care of us. Our gig w
