Hello... rainy days

How was your rainy weekend? I indulge myself to slumber cause I badly need it. I been out two months on the road visited two Philippines festival  ( The  Moriones / Pahiyas ) and b irthday parties  of my old good friends so I really deserve it all.The gentle thing sleep- pole to pole:) However, I feel bored...fixed a cup of  Joe  then set on the corner and listen to  every drop of the rain....but dullness still knocks on my head.  what happened next? I rummage into my wardrobe and guess what I have found.. perfect pieces for rainy days:)  Muddy Sweater by Mark and Spencer  and Clio knitted sweater.  I love how flexible this two sweaters! necks are wide enough to be off the shoulder on  one side can be worn with a lace tank top underneath or with no clothing underneath.  Skinny jeans or legging is very flattering with any off this shoulder sweater.  It will provide balance with a big volume top. and ankle boots that will make the look perfect:) what do you think? also I found

Life is good!

Simple pleasure

To make my day much more pleasant is to find little, simple pleasures and sprinkle them throughout my day. Life is just the novel you write on your coffee break.  and your novel is just a collection of lies you'd like to remember.  and all that you remember, is the distance from here The only reason any of it exists, is so that you can have fun while you're here. -i wrotethisforyou-  A few photos from this past week...simple pleasures   Life is good!   Photography by me 

Lucban Quezon: Pahiyas Festival 2011

Lucban, 3-4 hours south of manila, is an upland town in the province of Quezon :one of the largest Philippine provinces in terms of land area. The province is Postcard perfect itself and still has the provincial charm with the distant shadows of the mighty Mount Banahaw and rolling farmlands in the background. It was a long drive, good thing I secured one magazine and phone are loaded with good music. It helps  me when things get boring down the road. One thing I hate about this travel is that we are not able to reserve a room online. All hotels are fully booked so we drive through one town to another and good thing lady luck is with us. I love the hotel we stayed in, for a moment I though I was in bali as I stepped out of our hotel. Waking up, seeing the manicured garden, neat pathways and bali inspired structures make me knock my head off. I took so much pictures of the hotel and until now I can’t decide to what picture to post. Sorry if there is no picture of bed, I’m bad when it

Pahiyas Festival 2011

MANILA, Philippines — The Pahiyas Festival is one of the most popular, colorful, and lavish events in the Philippines. Held annually in the farming town of Lucban, Quezon, it is the local folks’ gesture of thanksgiving for a rich and bountiful harvest. Lucban is located on the foothills of Mount Banahaw. The festival, whose name is derived from “hiyas,” started as the local farmers’ celebration of harvest in honor of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers, peasants, and laborers. It began as a simple offering to the “anito” (pagan god) to invoke a bountiful harvest. The farmers and their families would gather their crops inside the small worship place where they would celebrate with food and a local drink derived from coconut. Over a century later, the local folks, incorporating their Christian faith into local practices, brought their finest crops to a much bigger church where the priest would bless and offer the crops in thanksgiving.
