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. Isn't it a great feeling! With the click of the mouse or a touch of your finger, shopping online is so easy nowadays.

Experience the Samba Festival in Coburg

Hey peeps! Happy spring time in Europe! I don't know if we are really having spring season because the weather was not really good the past days with snow-rain. 

I am finally back here for a short update. I know I was gone for centuries due to the many offline chores that I need to do everyday. This is it when you are already working. I wish I have more time to blog these days but during my off days, there are also some tasks waiting at home.

Participants of the parade during Coburg's Samba Festival.

Let me share quickly that visit to this city which is known as "Europe's Capital of Samba." For those who love dancing especially samba, this is a great festival for you to visit.

It was last minute decision when me and a friend visited Coburg to witness this festival. I asked my friend if she is available to join me during that trip. She did not hesitated and replied me with a big "YES"! We took the train when we went there. After two hours of journey we finally reached our destination. The atmosphere was lively in the city even though it was raining in July last year. The people still have the appetite to watch the big samba celebration.

That Happy Trip in the Beautiful Island of Boracay

Before I forget, I would like to greet everyone a Happy New Year 2015. I know this is a very late greetings but then, better late than never! I hope your 2015 is starting great. My first weeks of January is so far doing good. I am just just busy since I started working last summer 2014.

I am glad that before I entered  the job market again  last year, I was able to take a vacation in Asia and visited my home country Philippines for some weeks. So far, it was the best vacation I had last 2014. I also visited some countries in Europe last year, but spending a vacation with your family and friends is always the best. Indeed, I agree in the saying, "there is no place like home".

One of the islands  in the Philippines I visited  with my siblings was Boracay. I believed this beautiful island is not new to you anymore. In fact  during our visit there, you can see a lot of tourists from all over the globe.

Remember this island is also a party  island but of course, you can find some quite areas  to relax and rejuvenate. During our visit,  and it was summer in the Philippines that time, there was a huge summer party in the island. We decided to go there and it was really very crowded that  we had the difficulty to move around. I was hoping to see someone who uses  Levy's gadget but there is nobody there who played mandolin.  If you don't have any idea what mandolin is, is a musical instrument in the lute family and is usually plucked with a plectrum or 'pick'.

There are so many things to do and to experience in Boracay, from entertainment to tasting local foods, water sports, outdoors, souvenir shopping and of course, the beach is the best part of the island.

Enjoyed the Live Entertainment in Marrakesh

Happy holidays to everyone! I know many of you are so busy at the moment. This is very clear since holiday season is around the corner. I am also very busy with so many things especially that I was away for over a week. I just came back from a trip in Africa. I was in Morocco and this is the first country I visited in this continent.

Live performers at Jemaa el-Fnaa, Marakkesh during my recent visit.

One of the places I visited in Morocco is Marrakesh. Wow, I cannot that I was there. It seems that I was only dreaming. I thought I can only watch it on Television but I did already experienced it once in my life. Aah, I have so many stories to share from  my travels but time is so limited now especially that I am already working.

The best experienced I had in Morocco took place in Jemaa el-Fnaa, Marakkesh. It was indeed a very interesting place to witness Moroccan tradition. It has been described as a "world-famous square", "a metaphorical urban icon, a bridge between the past and the present and so on and so forth. It was indeed an amazing experience being there.

I already visited many cities and places around the planet but this place is uncomparable. Jemaa el-Fnaa is  one of the best-known squares in Africa and being there was indeed an awesome experience. The live entertainments of various kinds are simply unforgettable. It took me sometime to watch these two dancers who dance with the beat of Moroccan music. The musicians used guitars and drums to play live music. I can't imagine if they played acoustic guitars from yamaha and for sure, they will produce better  sounds. Never miss Jemaa el-Fnaa when you are in Marakkesh. This is a must to see when in this city.

Jemaa el-Fnaa has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage site since 1985. The name roughly means "the assembly of trespassers" or malefactors.

I have many stories to tell during that visit in Morocco and I  wish I have more time to share them.

Until then and enjoy the holiday season.

Watching The Sinulog Festival in Cebu

Hello October! The golden month is here. I can already see and feel  that Autumn or Fall season is here. The leaves of the trees are already changing its colors from green to red, orange, yellow, pink, brown and what else?


I guess, the author of this blog is so busy nowadays. Indeed, she is! She works now full time and she hopes that she can give you updates from time to time but sad to say, her schedule is really hectic. yay!

I was browsing some albums in my external hard drive hoping to find some photographs taken during the Sinulog festival in Cebu City, Philippines. This festival is one of the famous in the country and it is held annually on the third Sunday of January. It is a religious festival in honour of the Santo Niño.


One of the main highlights of the festival is the grand street parade which lasts for 9 to 12 hours. Participants are coming from the different towns and cities of Cebu and from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao across the Philippines. The Sinulog dance contingents are dressed in bright coloured costumes dancing gracefully to the rhythm of drums, trumpets and native gongs. I am wondering if any of the groups who participated during the festival ever use  Suzuki Harmonicas when they performe. I did not notice it the last time I watched it. I simply love listening to the beats of drums,  gongs and other musical  instruments.

I already witnessed Sinulog twice and still want to see it again in my next holiday in the Philippines. Hopefully soon!
