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 :)

Meet our Pet Rooster

Our pet rooster has been featured in Manila Bulletin. To view all posts about our pet, click here.

We have a pet rooster who travels with us on our road trips. We found him while still an egg and my  fiancée (who is a surgeon) helped him hatch, and the rooster now thinks we are his parents (more of this on later posts)! 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).

Visit to PAGASA Observatory

I have another hobby—astrophotography. Checkout my other blog here.

In the next few months, I will be joining scheduled astronomical observations in NCR and nearby provinces, to capture photos of the moon, planets, and galaxies. Thanks to the spacious boot of our EcoSport, I can easily transport all my equipment.

Bagasbas Beach, Daet

In November 2018, we’ve taken our EcoSport to an 8-hour trip to our home province in Camarines Norte and visited Bagasbas Beach in Daet.

As always, we’ve brought along our pet rooster in this trip!

Bagasbas, Daet, November 2018 (4)

During our short stay, we’ve visited  landmarks such as the boundary marker between Basud and Daet, and also the two-way radio landmark famous among fellow amateur radio enthusiasts.

Here are more photos of our visit:

Crosswinds, Tagaytay

In May 2018, we’ve visited a coffee shop in Crosswinds, Tagaytay. The windmill shown in this photo is not an actual windmill (the blades do not rotate), but rather, a building designed to look like a real windmill. Make sure to drop by this popular landmark next time you are in Tagaytay.

Pililla Wind Farm in Rizal

In April 2018, we’ve visited the wind farm in Pililla, Rizal. Twenty-seven wind turbines are built within this wind corridor in Rizal, some of which are accessible for free to the public. The best time of year to visit this place would be from February to April, when cool wind blows strongly from the northeast (Amihan), and there is a low chance of rain (dry season).

Leaving at 4 am from Daet, we’ve reached Pililla at 11 am. We explored the place for about an hour, then continued with our journey to Cavite. Pililia is only about 50 km (2-3 hour-trip) from Manila.

Just an hour away from our place of residence in Cavite, Tagaytay has become one of our favorite weekend destinations. Despite the thick fog, we enjoyed the view of the Taal Volcano from the Taal Vista Hotel.
