Fun Moments at the Chinese Fasching or Carnival in Dietfurt

It is still Fasching or carnival season in Germany. I have been watching the carnival shows on German televisions the past days. I really want to visit some of the biggest carnivals in the country like the ones in Cologne, Mainz or Dusseldorf but until now, I still did not have the chance. I heard over the news today that the carnival parades in some of these cities were cancelled due to bad weather. That was quite sad.

The Chinese Fasching or Carnival in Dietfurt in Bavaria, Germany.

Although, I did not really experience the biggest Fasching or carnivals in Germany, at least I had witnessed some of it in Bavaria. One of my favorite places to go in the region is this town called Dietfurt. This is where the Chinese Carnival is taking place every year.

Participants of the carnival parade wearing Chinese costumes.

One thing I love to see is the parade that goes around the town. During the parade, you can find very interesting carnival costumes from pirates, to fairies, doctors, nurses, policemen, witches, dwarfs, hippies costumes and many more. There are also street performers from musicians who plays violin, drums, trumpets, guitars and other musical instruments. After the parade, there are also live shows and group of bands playing at the town center. For sure you can also find jhs pedals use by the musicians.

Here is a little information about Fasching or carnival: The carnival session, also known as the "Fifth Season", begins each year on 11 November at 11:11 a.m. and finishes on Ash Wednesday of the following year with the main festivities happening around Rosenmontag (Rose Monday).

It is indeed such fun moments visiting celebrations  like this! I love it!

Time to Shop for Christmas Presents

Hello folks! I am back in this part of the blogosphere. How are you doing? I hope everything is running smooth especially that the holiday season is around the corner. I believed some of you are slowly  getting ready for Christmas. As for me, everything is doing good so far. I can't complain for now except that I am so busy with many things.  I hope for everyone as well.

One of the things you can do during Christmas is to visit Christmas markets in Europe. You might find a right presents for your  family and love ones in the many kiosks and stalls in  there. This Christmas market was taken in Innsbruck, Austria.

Anyway, since the holiday season is here I know that some of you are busy shopping for  Christmas presents for your family, loveones, friends or maybe colleagues.  I am just doing window shopping for now especially that I am so far away from home. I already bought some presents for my family which I will be sending thru balikbayan boxes early next year.

Yesterday, I  spoke to a former colleague who loves  to play musical instrument. We wear talking about concerts, music and playing of musical instruments. I was surprised when he mentioned that he can play a banjo. I was thinking that the  best banjo capo would be a perfect gift for him. What do you think folks? I am planning to browse online about this music accessories.

Are you ready for the holiday season? I guess, I am! Have a wonderful celebration  but be safe guys!

Let's Visit Oktoberfest and have Fun

It is still not too late to plan for the largest festival in the planet? the only disadvantage is, it will be difficult for you to find cheap accommodations in Munich area and its surroundings. Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival with over 6 million visitors, both locals and from around the globe.



I believed most of the reasons why so many people are going there is to experience the fun and entertainment during the duration of the celebration. More that, since it is a beer festival, tasting and drinking beers that are only brewed by the best breweries in Munich is also one of the reasons why many guests and tourists are flocking this event every year.

Of course, you must not miss the live bands in every beer tent. There are live musicians playing great musical instruments. If you understand what is bit depth, I know you will have fun listening to the live bands there. This is one thing I love everytime I visit a German festival.

If you are in Bavaria especially in Munich area, never miss the fun visiting the world's largest festival. I guess, I am a lucky traveler visiting Oktoberfest many times.  Cheers and be safe!

Time to Hear the Beat of the Drums at the Tillyfest in Breitenbrunn

Hello folks! Wow, it seems that I was away again for sometime. This is the busy life that I have now. I wish, I can turn back the time when I have a lot of time, everytime and  anytime of the day! lol!


The musicians during the parade at the Tillyfest in Breitenbrunn last 2014.I will surely visit it again this year.

How was your first week of the month? I hope everything is going great. So far, so good for me and I am thankful about it. I believed it is time to have fun again. Although I really have a busy life, I also find time to entertain myself.
I just don't want to stay at home when I have day off. We need something that will deviate us from our day to day job.  Anything  that make us happy  like go walking, on a day trip, visiting a festival, watch a movie, go to the disco, or simply spend time with  family and friends.

This is also the reason why I am planning to visit again this festival that I always love to see.  The Tillyfest in Breitenbrunn is held every year in September.  This festival is already a part of the culture and tradition in the town.  This is a festival that commemorates the history  during the 30 years war in Breitenbrunn during the Middle Age. It was  named after Grafen Tilly who visited first the area in 1624.

The highlight of the festival is the parade that takes place on Sunday during the weekend. You can see a lot of participants, performers including musicians with their colorful festival costumes and decors.  For now, it is said to be visited by over 12,000 people near and far.

Breitenbrunn is municipality located in the district of Neumarkt in Bavaria in Germany.

Time to Party in Calella, Spain

Hey folks! I am back here! How are you doing? I hope you are doing great  this month. Time flies so fast that we are already on the seventh month of the year 2015. I can't also imagine that we are already on the middle of July. This means that my big day is almost fast approaching and it is time to celebrate once in a while.


Back to the main topic..I just miss those days where I had fun with friends during that trip in Spain. I can say I had a bash that time and I can never forget those days especially the nights when we just sat down on the restaurants and bars drinking wine or tasting local foods.

Our hotel is around some minutes walk from the beach in Callela. Every night, there are live performances along the beach especially at the restaurants and bars. You can witness live bands playing good music with their musical instruments and singers. I am not quite sure if the lead singer used a mudguard in that band group where we witnessed in one of the nights when we were there.
Nightlife in Calella  is indeed never boring.

For you information the seaside town of Calella is located on the Costa del Maresme, 58 km northeast of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. Today, the town has been an attraction to many tourists especially from Europe and locals due to its nice  beach and  nightlife.

Enjoyed the Live Shows During that Cruise in Greece

Calm sea during our cruise trip in Greece.
I believed, I am ready to take another round of cruise trip. Although, I have seasickness sometimes, I was so thankful that I did not had it during my recent cruise trip. And yes, it was so far an awesome cruise trip in Greece. This country has a lot to offer to its guests and visitors inspite the financial and economic crisis it is facing right now. I really don't want to talk about it but I would love to share the fun and enjoyment I had during that vacation.

It was not my first cruise trip but already the fourth one. One thing I love during cruise holidays are the live shows and entertainment you can have in the ship. It is a great swimming hotel where you can have everything.

I Miss the Entertainment During that Cruise in Scandinavia

It was indeed a luxury cruise and I miss it. I also miss my travel buddies who are in the other side of the planet now. I also miss those times when I can travel anytime and anywhere I want to. I am still hoping that I can still do it in the future. With the current job I have now, I can no longer do the many escapades I did before.

That memorable and luxurious trip with Aidabella last spring 2013.
 That  luxury cruise in Scandinavia was an awesome experience. I did not only have fun but I also had a wonderful time with a friend. She is now back in the United States and I am hoping one day, we can travel together again.

What I also miss are the live entertainments  on board especially  the live bands and the live performances on stage.For sure those singers, guitarists, drummers together  with their musical instruments  use  fender stratocaster tremolo  all the time. One night while watching a live band on board, one thing that touched  me was the song that was performed so beautifully  with that female singer.  It  was one of my favorite songs by Mariah Carey and I can listen to it all the time.

I wish,  I can  suill do another  cruise this year and hoping that it will be in the Caribbean.  Crossing my fingers! Have a wonderful one folks!

Saving Money While Shopping Online When you are in Southeast Asia

Are you currently  living in Southeast Asia and have been looking for a perfect store to shop online while saving some money?  The answer to this question is very easy. All you can do is simply move your mouse and browse for  iprice . This is a perfect one stop shopping destinations for all shopaholics like me!


Okey, let me tell  you a very  quick story.  This is  about my shopping experience in my home country Philippines. That time  I was looking for an external hard  drive online. I was browsing a lot of shopping sites online but it seems that it is  not possible for them to deliver purchased items in my country. For example, I was trying to  order an  external hard drive in Amazon but they won't deliver  particular  products in Cebu.  I was quite frustrated about it  so I ended up cancelling my order.


Thanks to iprice Philippines!

I finally found a perfect shopping website for me when I am in the Philippines.  Awhile  ago, I was browsing their electronic category  looking for an external hard drive.  I found this Seagate Backup Plus 2TB USB 3.0 Ultra Slim Portable HDD which is 21% off. It is already a lot of savings when you buy it. Imagine a savings of almost one fourth of the original price? That is a lot of money already and you can spend it on other things.


How to save Money While Shopping Online?

There are a lot of ways in saving money when buying a certain product. For example, I always see to it that the item  I buy has the lowest price in the market.  One of the  best thing to do is to find out if there are coupons or  vouchers offered for the product. I am  also checking for special offers  and promotions , thinking that if I can find one that  belongs to this list, I can for sure save some bucks from it.  Items that are on clearance sale, manager's special or seasonal promotion can be very cheap.  These are some of the ways to save money while doing online shopping.



Shopping  is So Convenient Now!

No need of falling in line at the store paying for the items you buy. There is no more  stress in catching or riding a bus or train. You don't need to spend some money for gasoline  and no more   driving during traffic days  in going to the shopping mall.  With  online  shopping you can shop at the comfort and convenience of your home,  24 hours a day.
