Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

My Little Trip in Guam

For only $225 for 3 nights, this is the room I got, a beach front view room. Hotel Santa Fe is not a big hotel but it perfectly suited my needs. I actually got this room for almost 50% off. I also rented a car for 1 day ($30) and drove around the island.  View from the terrace of my room Hagatna Bay and looking at Philippine Sea Sunset over Hagatna bay Morning walk in Hagatna Bay  Fish Eye Marine Park I don't remember the name of this place but it's sure is pretty. My mother was happy to finally see the place where my granddaddy spent a couple years when he was in military. That was a long long time ago.

Family Farm

Short visit to the family farm a Durian fruit farm  Joel's checking out the durian. He doesn't like eating durian not because of the stinky smell but because of the taste. Weird because most people here likes the taste but not the smell. Check out how stinky the durian is DURIAN .  look how low the fruits are The kids of hired help in the farm Farm house/house of another hired help. Sometimes my mom spend a few days there because she's tired of going up and down the mountain just to go home and be back the next day. Simple and peaceful living. Plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. My mom likes it there. Road to the farm. My Aunt Warlyn was trying to find a way to get to the other side of the stream and not to get wet.

Bacngeb Alliance Church

Truly, there's a reason to celebrate! I'm glad to had the opportunity to attend the Thanksgiving Celebration, Child dedication and Christmas party of this church. I was amazed on how the congregation come together and gave the best they can or they have even if it means there's nothing left for tomorrow. Faith, Love and Joy! When my dad passed away, my mom decided to give a little portion of the property for church building. She knew that my dad was planning about it before he left. The church isn't finish yet but they already have almost 100 members and most of them are children. Almost all the members are T'boli (one of the indigenous group of people in the Philippines) I couldn't understand them when they start talking.   Back of the Church The parsonage or the pastor's house.
