Use the Engine Bay to Re-heat a Frozen Pizza

We did not wish to eat a pizza frozen, so while waiting for my fiancée to buy some stuff, I placed the pizza on the engine bay in an attempt to warm it up. It worked and we enjoyed the pizza afterwards.

Re-heating a pizza by placing it on the engine bay is not exactly something that I would recommend, so please do not try this yourself. Eat the pizza cold ;)

Two-Way Radio Landmark in Daet

Fellow amateur radio enthusiasts find this landmark very fascinating, featuring a two-way radio. It is located near the Daet-Basud boundary, along the Pan-Philippine Highway (do not confuse it with the new highway—Quirino Highway—which does not pass through Daet). The landmark was built by Kabalikat Civicom 139 Daet Chapter.

In case you wish to visit the landmark on your next DU4 visit, I’ve had it located in Google maps.

I first noticed this landmark in the 90s, when we moved to Bicol

Walking on the Beach with our Rooster (April 2019)

We’ve just returned from a Bicol trip with our pet rooster Chocobo. As always, we’ve visited the two-way radio landmark near the Daet-Basud boundary, along Maharlika Highway, and the Bagasbas beach (also in Daet). Watch the video of our pet rooster as we take a walk along the beach at sunrise.

Observing the March 2019 Super Moon

Supermoon with Chocobo
Observing the super moon with our pet rooster

We’ve observed last night’s super moon using a 4-inch f/9 telescope. While it is true that the moon will be closer to Earth during a super moon, the difference in size and brightness compared to a non-super moon is so small and so subtle that it will be very difficult to detect such an almost negligible difference, even for amateur astronomers who regularly observe the moon, and use astronomical equipment such as a telescope.

To learn more about upcoming astronomical events, head directly to my astronomy blog.

Aguinaldo Shrine and Digman Halo-halo

We’ve visited the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite. I’ve confirmed two of the things I’ve read about it in history books: (1) that the shrine’s tower can be seen from a few kilometers away—which means that any approaching party could be easily spotted, and (2) the shrine is surrounded by bodies of water (sea and river networks), which probably served as natural barriers to prevent uninvited guests. We did not go inside since we are far more interested in learning about the shrine’s strategic and defensive location.

We also tried out the Digman halo-halo in Bacoor, Cavite. Digman is a narrow street with shops serving the famous halo-halo. Note that parking is really difficult, even during off peak season. All of the shops claim to be “the original”, but which of them is the real one? Perhaps one day we’ll find out. For now, we’ll just let our pet rooster Chocobo enjoy the halo-halo :)

Chocobo visits Greenbelt Makati

During the Christmas break (December 2018), we’ve visited Greenbelt Makati—one of the very few pet-friendly places which allowed our pet rooster in. During our road trips, Chocobo wears a comfy diaper custom-made by his lola in Bicol :)

Teaching Chocobo some tricks, May 2018 ;) 

In 2018 we rescued a chick and now it has become a rooster! He always follows us everywhere we go, and we also bring him to various pet-friendly places (not many places here in the Philippines allow chicken pets).

Here are some photos of Chocobo on-board our EcoSport!
