LTO registration

DIY tipid mode today. How to stencil your kariton's engine and chassis number. 1. Open the hood of your kariton and look for the engine number. It's located near the timing belt. 2. Rub/scratch a carbon paper on the engine number. 3. Get a scotch tape and pencil. 4. Put a small amount of scotch tape over the number and rub it with the pencil. 5. Remove the scotch tape and put it on the vehicle registration form. Repeat 1 - 5 to get the chassis number. Pakapin sa kamot = hugaw sa carbon paper, hugaw sa engine timing belt and savings of P30-P50 for the today's DIY. I'll soon be a "mekanika" doing this. Hehehe

How to beat a typhoon

I admit I hate rain. I hate being under the mercy of an umbrella much more slowly and carefully walk like a robot protecting your shoes and your feet from getting soaked.

Ended up one of those freaking MRT riding-public one rainy night in Manila. Honestly I would say it was one great rainy-date, not even Typhoon Falcon’s heavy downpour can beat that unconventional date.

When you embrace positivity in life, you might end up accepting the rain. After all, there are many things to do while there is bagyo.

Rainy Day 1 | Feast on a nice Japanese meal at Mogu Japanese resto at Serendra, Bonifacio High Street and end your night with a yummy gelato from Gelatissimo Café also in Serendra.

Rainy Day 2 | Go Mediterranean and enjoy the best tasting Beef Kebab at Gilak by Hossein at Greenbelt III, Ayala Center, Makati.

Rainy Day 3 | Go local, savor a hot Almondigas soup, veggie-pasta salad and yogurt of Pancake House at Greenhills San Juan or have a spare-ribs rice meal from Mann Hann also in Greenhills.

Rainy Day 4 | Watch a movie at Shangri-La Plaza Mall in Mandaluyong City and dine at C2 Classic Cuisine afterwards.

Rainy Day 5 | Fill your tummy with a sumptuous Crab Maritess from Red Crab Café at Level 1, Gateway Mall, Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City.

That's at least five food trips while battling Typhoon Falcon. I missed the Banchetto night market, though. There will always be a next time and the next time will be very enjoyable – minus MRT and the rain. Yes! I can proudly say, I defeated Typhoon Falcon. Binge-eating warrior!

Advance birthday gift

It’s been about 8 or 10 years since I ceased being so involved in this so-called “Beautiful Game.”
It wasn’t about time, love gone sour, isolation or loss of interest. Napadpad lang ako sa ibang landas, hindi naman napunta sa drugs at mas lalong hindi sa sugal. Parang talagang medyo naiba lang ang ihip ng hangin.
But I still love the game though I’m not that active anymore.

I admit I miss watching the games. I miss the people around, most especially the camaraderie.
On 17 February, I got an early birthday gift if I may call it.

They may say it’s actually just a “pasalubong” but one item from the plastic bag caught my attention.

This one.

Happy na nga sana ako with just butterscotch as pasalubong, knowing it’s my favorite.
But I guess my couple friends Liezel and Afuang made it sure that the other item would be far more adorable than the food.
Indeed it was amazing.

I didn’t dream having one like this nor did I imagine getting one as a birthday gift.
Nawala na nga ako sa passing sa football eh.

But thank you guys for making me recall how we love this beautiful game and the passion is still within.
Just imagine that, walang kapagod-pagod, kumpletos rekados.

Honestly I don’t even remember all the members of the Philippine Team, their names, and their jersey numbers.
Walang kapagod-pagod, walang kahirap hirap, I simply got their signatures on the shirt. Kinalolokahan lang naman sila ng mga girlalu at iba pa.

Thanks Liezel and Afuang for taking time out to meet the famous Askal Team in Bacolod and for remembering me and my love for football.
Thank you, I have numbers 21, 10, 15, 6, 23, 22, 25, 9 and 14 on this lovely Azkal shirt.
Let's continue and keep the football spirit alive and kicking!

Weekend in Malolos, Bulacan

After months of hibernating from this page. Here I am seriously back in the forms and energized from my latest travel.
As everybody prepares for their semestral break, my preparation was to visit some historical sites in Bulacan.
Planned it last September.

First on the list in touring Bulacan is the historical Barasoain Chuch.
As we all know, we only see the figure of this famous Barasoain Church at the back of our P10.oo bill.
One weekend last month, the church was right in front of my eyes and it was much better than the one I only see in the money.

The church also known as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish was built in 1630. It has earned the title as the "Cradle of Democracy in the East" and they say that it is the "most important religious building in the Philippines" having been the seat of first government of the country.

Barasoain church was founded by in Augustinian Missionaries in 1859. Considered one of the most beautiful churches in the Philippines for its unique architectural design. Philippines' first president General Emilio Aguinaldo and the 13th president Joseph Estrada were inaugurated in this church.

(The Altar)

(Barasoain's Garden)

(President General Emilio Aguinaldo's transpo)

(Malolos Museum)

(Tarlac Rep. Jose C. Cojuangco's ancestral home)

(Aside from historical tourist spots, Bulacan is also known for their affordable Christmas decors)

How to get there:
By private vehicle, from Manila, go to NLEX.
Take TABANG exit to your right. Then drive straight until you hit Guiguinto, Bulacan.
Continue driving until you see the Malolos flyover. Do not pass on the flyover.
Take the lower lane and make a left turn.
From that flyover turn, the church is just about 2 kilometers away.
You will see Barasoain Church on your right side.
