mugs and mountains

Here’s another one from ate Gem.  Thank you so much!

(at the back of the mug )

The Liberation Tower is the second tallest structure in Kuwait.It was meant to be called The Kuwait Telecommunications Tower. The Construction of the tower stopped during the Iraq Invasion and was resumed after the Iraq’s forces were expelled in 1991. Upon completion in 1993 , the tower was renamed The liberation tower , symbolizing the Kuwait’s liberation from Iraq.

I asked him once but he never made a promise and I never expected anything…

What made me surprised and glad was the gesture of this lady who stood like my padrino…ang lakas nang connections…hahahahah!

Mt. Tapyas | Coron Palawan

Dennis, our tour guide told me, that Mt. Tapyas is the highest mountain in Coron, at 210 meters ASL.

During our stay in Coron I had the chance to climb it twice, first was to catch the sun set and second the sun rise.

Sun set - I was with a new friend,Jzel. it was so unfortunate that we did not witness the sunset as it was raining. But on top - it was overwhelming as I can see the coron island, a beautiful sculpture of nature.



Sun rise - I was with my Tita,cousin and my sister. we started as early as 5:30 am to make sure we can view the sun rising. It is my pride that my sister wanted to try it out as there’s stairways in going up with handrail. I went up ahead of them as they knew I really wanted to witness the sun rising (“,).

724 steps to reach the top, lucky me this time as I captured this:


wonderful! amazing!

but it’s not just that..I am so proud of my sister…I was surprised that when I was about to went down to meet her (as she stopped to go up), she’s 10 steps away..


I was so happy! yes, she did it! yes she can!



I will never ever forget this. (“,)

Thank you Lord, for this wonderful experience.

Anne, you’re the one who first gave me a set of demitasse, from there on…I’ve got a lot.

and now you gave me amug with a logo…nice! - made me feel a little more love coming to me hhahahaha!
