Planned by Irene, Eric and Tin, this was to accommodate May on her first vacation since working abroad in Abu Dhabi. A local trip this time, after our HK getaway last year. They were choosing from Palawan, Boracay and Bohol, eventually, Bohol won after much fun debate. Love for chocolate and those bubbly eyes of the tarsiers plus Cebu is just a boat ride - SuperCat - away, paved the way to a Bohol trip.

Our Bohol trip wasn't at all that sunny, but rain did not dampen the atmosphere, there's just too many beautiful places and lots of nice people for this to happen.

Back at the range, LHS that is.


Archery LHS Oct31- A couple of trainees preparing to shoot their arrows at the 20 meter line during their warm up session. I took the photo standing at the 30 meter line and after that took my turn to try my skills from that distance. Grabe! My first time to release an arrow from that distance, kabado and excited! Mahirap. And these guys later on did it on 50, 60 meters at ease and continued their session (qualifying) even in the rain. Coach Neng Buenaventura told me, on occasions during outdoor competitions, they have to shoot arrows come rain or shine. 


Waiting for dad


Mico thought balloon:

Thanks mom for setting me on the grocery pushcart...  kung hindi, mangawit ako nakatayo dyan... at tsaka pagod na ako kakatakbo hehehe...  I am sure pati si kuya napagod kakahabol sa akin.  Antagal naman ni daddy, sabi kukunin lang car, ba't wala pa hanggang ngayon?  I know, and I am sure... nakalimutan nanaman ni dad kung saan nya nai-park yung car. hehehe...

Black and Blue


Those are not hit marks from bb's but rather from bow string. Last weekend I started my archery classes and those bruises they say are common to beginners. 

They gave me an arm guard but that did not do much.  It's not the arm guard but my shooting style that's at fault. Umpisa pa lang naman.

NC lost its smile


No more Smiley.

Yup, May is the new site keeper for NC. I had a chat with her the last time I visited the place. She even gave me a tour, I told her I knew the place very well and that I used to play a lot of airsoft here and Smiley is a friend. Sabi nya barkada nya rin si Raymond and she begun to elaborate Smiley's last days in NC. Same thing comrade Longrifle wrote - that Smiley lose its ways.

I told May that Raymond also spent some of his time with our group during his better days. Sabi ko sa kanya kasa-kasama namin sya sa Diamond pag meron mga ukasyon. Dinadalhan din namin sya ng pagkain sa kubo nya paminsan-minsan pag hindi sya nagpapakita sa grupo. A friend of ours offered him a small job in his canteen but it did not work. We hired Smiley to man our playing site Campo Phoenix on Sundays but that too did not work for him. The man did try to pick pieces of what is left of his life after NC but a lot of things are just too hard for him accept. He got frustrated with life and begun to lose his grip on it.

Hindi na sya nagpapakita sa tropa, ibang tropa na pinupuntahan nya. Puro balita na lang ang dumadating sa amin, madalas hindi pa maganda.

Up to this day I haven't heard a news about our friend. North Camp has lost its smile.

Sponge Bob Matt

SpongeBob - Matthew's costume that I made from an old Balikbayan box and some color cartolina.  Got the idea from Rem's SpongeBob outfit.  
It was an instant hit during Trizzia's 7th birthday celebration that after the party, everybody wants their picture taken together with SpongeBob Matthew.

Farewell to Cory

"Today our country has lost a mother, a woman of both strength and graciousness."


The quote I used on the top of this post is from the very person whom I took part in ousting from the Presidency and succeeded. He did not finish his term.

That message just shows how high a respect this lady earned throughtout her lifetime as a leader, which I can only wish for to our current.

Farm Town


After almost a month now since planting my first crop, my farm has prospered so much that I was able to acquire a 18x18 farm, buy a small house and a red barn, and three dogs and three dog houses to go with it. It's addictive playing this game and sorta relaxing staring at what you have accomplished. To date, it's only the second video game me and Irene enjoy playing together. The first, Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear series. (anlayo! lol)

Happy planting everyone!
