Furry Saturday

Earlier today I attended to my cousin Ryan's sons baptism. Yes two sons, Raine and Anthony. Ella and me was supposed to go Iloilo for the Visayan Blogging Summit unfortunately due to financial reason we cannot make it there. But its still okay for I was able to see my relatives in Hinigaran. It was quite long since I last visited them and I'm sure they would be very happy to see me. Together with my family and Ella we went to Hinigaran to attend our relatives baptismal. It was half past 12:00 when we arrived and in time for lunch. Everyone is already hunger. We were surprised that they prepared so many foods for a handful of visitors. There were roasted pig, sweet and sour pork, menudo, beef in mushroom and broccolli, fried lumpia, orange chicken... the list goes on. It was Raine's 3rd birthday also so we had cake and gelo for dessert. When everybody was full, champagne and red wine was served to the visitors. I sipped a glass of champagne while playing with their American pug Bravo. They have two more dogs; their German Shepherd Shasha and their brown Chihuahua Chikito. I was not able to take photos of Shasha and Chikito. Amongst the three Bravo got the most attention because of its wrinkled face and playfulness.
According to a book I've read about dogs, the Pug is oldest breed of dogs and was traced back before 400 B.C. According to researchers, it must have come from Asia because due to its similarities to a Pekingese. The Pugs must have came from China because monks from the Buddhist monasteries in Tibet made them pets.

Plants Vs Zombies Addiction

     I played Plants vs Zombies during my past time or if I have nothing to do. It was almost six months ago when I started playing it.  I finished the Adventure mode to unlock the other three modes.  My Zen garden now have different kinds of plants that produces coins and my Wisdom tree is 1,500 feet tall.  The most thrilling and exciting mode to play is the Survival endless.  To defend my home from getting the zombies to eat my brain, I planned my defense strategy carefully.

The Lawn:
  • I purchased 2 pool cleaners and a garden rake for additional defense.
  • First row from the house, 2 twin sunflowers and 2 umbrella leafs to protect you plants from bungees and catapults.
  • Second row, 4 gloom-shrooms againts digger xombies and imps.
  • Third row, 4 winter melons to slow down the zombies.
  • Fourth row, 2 winter melons and 2 gloom shrooms.
  • 5th and 6th row, 4 deadly corn cobs.
  • 7th row, spike rocks, ice-shrooms or fume-shrooms.
The Pool:
  • First to fourth row - corn cobs.
  • Fifth row - twin sunflowers.
  • Sixth row - 2 cattails.
  • 6 gloom-shrooms on the remaining rows.
     I am already on my 1000th flags and still hoping to make it to 5000 flags.  My favorite plants is the cattail because its can shoot any lane whether it be on the ground,air or water.  My most hated zombie is the jack-in-the-box because when it explodes it destroys all nearby plants.
     I so loove playing this game so i will continue to kick zombies in their butt if they step on my lawn! And did you know that the world boxing champ Manny Paquiao play Plants vs Zombies too?

San Carlos City Pintaflores Festival 2010

     Last weekend, November 5 to be exact, I had a chance to witnessed one of Negros Occidental's colorful celebration, the Pintaflores Festival. Like many other festivity around the country, Pintaflores is a street and ritual dance parade depicting the victory of good against evil and thanksgiving for the bountiful blessings.

     It was around mid noon when we arrived in San Carlos City, the sun was way over our head and burning our skin but that did not stop us from enjoying the merriment. I was amazed and overwhelmed by the dancers lavished and colorful costume that looked like giant flowers.
