We were on our way to Dahilayan Adventure Park and we passed by on these lush green pineapple plantation from Del Monte Philippines Inc. in Camp Philipps, Manolo Fortich Bukidnon. It was a cloudy day when we arrived at the park and the heavy rain falls when we went back home.
My mom recently had a tour together with her friend in Mainau Island, Germany. Here’s some of the beautiful lake photos that she captured during their tour.
This whole month of August theme for Tuesday Travels will feature some travel photos of food. So here’s my entry for this week. A special dish from Switzerland where my mom is currently working and living with. And since this blog also features different cultures and traditions from other country, this Swiss Specialty called the Swiss Fondue Chinoise is one of the best examples that I would like to share to all of you.
Fondue comes from the French verb which means melting. This is right for cheese fondues or chocolate Fondues, where you melt something to get a creamy mass into which you can dip things on a long fork.
a Swiss Fondue Chinoise is a thinly sliced, rolled beef (or other meat) cooked in broth
Fun Fact: Did you know that I was asking and begging my mom to cook some of their food specialty so I can post some photos here in my blog? ^_^
Thanks to my ever supportive mom because she agreed on it and she decided to prepare it for their dinner together with my younger sister. It’s just too bad that I can’t taste and eat it. Grrrr… but anyway, I hope next time I get the chance to eat this yummy and sumptuous dish.
This week’s theme for Tuesday Travels is all about our favorite beach destination so here’s my entry for this week. I am featuring our very own local beach in Opol, Misamis Oriental.
Everytime my mom spends her holiday here with us every year, she usually rent an apartment near the beach in Balan Compound, Opol. She loves swimming at the beach every morning. I only swim in the morning or late afternoon because I don’t want to get dark LOL!
Opol is a nearby municipality of Misamis Oriental and from city proper of Cagayan de Oro, it is 30-45 minutes away.
These two sexy ladies in white will be spending their holiday here in the Philippines this coming July 15. Woot! I can’t wait to see them…why? because I will be their tour guide…hehehe! That’s my younger sister Xyza Mae (on the right) together with her friend Laura.
My sister already visited the Philippines a year ago together with my mom. But this time she will travel along with her friend who will visit our country for the first time. But I think were gonna be having a language barrier here since they don’t speak English. My sister can speak and understand but not at all. They both speak Swiss-German language. Well, I think a little yes or no or a simple gesture or facial expression perhaps could help. LOL!
I don’t know…let’s see but I think were all gonna be enjoying ourselves while they are here. I will take them to our local tourist attractions, the beaches, go shopping etc etc …I’m sure its gonna be fun! ^_^
