Bruno My Lab

BRUNO My Yellow Labrador Retriever

Only 2 months old he arrived at his new home. He was brought by Paul & Donna (the Breeder).  The last dog I had died of old age (12 human years with us) was Toni a mixed Japanese Spitz.  After she died I thought of not getting another dog again.

A Long and Winding Road of Baguio City


One of my wishlist as a child was to travel in Baguio City.  I used to look at my Mom's photos in Baguio City during her younger days and her stories about the wonderful places in Baguio City.

The Historical Intramuros Manila Walk

   I was staying at a friends place inside Intramuros, I have been to Manila several times but has never had a chance to see Intramuros, so I decided to do some leisure walk and see the place my Mom was born and grew up way back 1931.  In her stories, she grew up there until her High School Years.  I always wanted to do this and my chance finally came.

Volcano Trekking at Mt. Pinatubo

Some time in March of 2011, our close friends from Manila invited us to join them to an Outreach Program & Mt. Pinatubo trekking trip,  after our Puerto Princesa Trip (please see this link: EXPLORING PUERTO PRINCESA PALAWAN).  Since I got an approval from the office for a 1 week vacation leave I gave her an affirmative answer.  After arrangements was made for us to join the group of Dong Ho (Dong Ho Escapo) was set and confirmed, she then sent us the itinerary.

Exploring Puerto Princesa Palawan

It's really nice to have friends who loves to travel.  This friend couple of mine are the sister and brother in-law of my friend Dave.  They like to do road trips and has been to many places in the Philippines.  It is just unfortunate that they live in Manila and we live in Davao so we can't just easily join them :(
