Batangas Provincial Capitol

While the architecture in Batangas capitol looks like other provincial capitols as well, the landscaping is good and spacious..

Downtown Batangas City

which could have also been used by the downtown only if. Hmm.

Ancestral House in the corner of Tirona and Atienza Streets

More than the famed kapeng barako and balisong, the city got some cool heritage or ancestral houses like this one..

Calumpang Bridge

And some landmark that I heard a lot as a kid, the Calumpang River; well, it’s the bridge in the picture but under it is the river. Haha.

Lyceum of the Philippines University -Batangas

One of Batangas’ top schools is the LPU — and it is just located in between Calumpang River and SM City Batangas.

Santissima Trinidad Church

Incidentally, Santissima Trinidad is just beside SM City Batangas.

Basilica del Immaculada Conception

What’s a Philippine province without a beautiful cathedral?!

Finally, here’s a secret that’s no secret..

Bus going to Iloilo?

Did you know that you could actually travel in a bus from Manila to Iloilo — straight?!? Yeah, you only pay around P1,500 for the whole trip that would carry your bus on a ship on the way to Iloilo City. Thing is, you do not really get to enjoy the places you pass by.

Life is an adventure. Stop and smell the flowers!

So, what did you wear this Valentine’s day? Hope t’was cool and sexy, uh! Hey, fashion is not really about following ‘every’ trend, like in this instance, the color ‘red’ since it’s the day of lovers..

Fashion is about carrying yourself in style.

Prince George is turning 1..

Meet our cute, little star of the day – Prince George of Cambridge, son of the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine and, Prince William, known as the Duke of Cambridge.

Well, it’s been a year now since the young Prince was born, actually a couple more days before George turns 1.. And that would be this Tuesday, July 22.

So, let’s see his life in pictures, or some pictures that is..








And since it’s almost his birthday, well, he’s showing he could go on his own.

Eager for Prince George’s second birthday? Ah, what’s another 365 days to wait..

The Location game…

Location (including structural design) is crucial in the food business and especially if you are still a new player..

The store known here as "McDo"
The store known here as “McDo”

Though consumers will find wherever their store is, popular fast foods still try to go for that edge – that “busy corner” location.

Max's Restaurant

Max’s Restaurant, known for their chicken recipe, did a good job in its lighting particularly with its entrance and selected “dimming” within.

Mang Tinapay, a new corner bakeshop has its visibility blocked by fruit stands and a mini-terminal – but “newness” attracts, so?

Okay, being near a terminal is good however if your store is just too close to vehicles then it could affect “the brand it wants to establish.”

Nonetheless, in the end, it all depends on the “location” – this time it means the locality or region where your store is; and on how tolerant the culture is to such.

Not just gifts for Christmas, but…

Aside from gifts, this is what many of us get at this time of the year – “indigestion” or some form of it.

So would you suggest just being picky with all the food that’s offered?

Hmm… that’s a good idea. But then, hey, it’s the holidays!? You don’t want to turn down your grandma’s cooking?! And yes, the company of your cousins and friends simply “helps” you forget what you’re actually eating. Oh my.. just deliciously sinful!

Remember our “cleansing” diet? Guess it would be good if you could schedule it in the next few weeks..

The Best Christmas Gift one could receive…

Christmas is a time of giving.. and receiving. And so, we all have our own ideas of what the “best” gift would be.

Yet obviously, these would depend on each of our needs and priorities… and of course, our age as well as gender and personality.

Well, here’s the one gift most would appreciate..

For men.. Books would be one great gift

For women.. Bags are always a winner

Ooh, notice how our generation has turned to technology? How about including a healthy body as a gift to yourself?

That would be the best gift one could ever receive.. so, better get enough rest.. eat healthy.. and move your body.

How’s the Sun been?

Guess telecom companies should not give any sort of misleading claims or promos especially when they do not have a stable signal – for they could face many consequences from losing customers to legal suits.

As for what happened to SUN Cellular

See? Connection problems...
See? Connection problems…
Okay, but they're trying...

Despite the flaw, SUN is a good provider. They try to fix problems; but the problem is.. signals still need fixing. And.. they lack, at least, one more phone brand on their list – Alcatel.

The next page includes Blackberry and iPhone...
Basically a good procedure except…

Notice the last photo? Most known phones are listed but no Alcatel

Consumer Photos 44

Lunch at The Buzzz
Lunch at The Buzzz

If only for food, lunch at The Buzzz was not bad. I had a good meal as you can see with the above photo, and customers were even treated to complimentary “chewables” with the photo below. That’s good.

Yes, the staff were polite and attentive… and oh, they had WIFI of course.

Complimentary food...

Unfortunately, although The Buzzz does not intentionally turn off their WIFI – they got a “bad signal.” I mean, it sorts of fluctuates, and they could not reset their router and stuff because its location is bit high as only their technical staff who appears once-in-a-while could handle it.
