This is going to be my first time this year to participate in the weekly photo challenge, after being on hiatus for several months. Very timely for me, “UP” is this week’s theme. Heads UP for a new start!

I am sharing the photographs I took when we visited Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque In Abu Dhabi. The chandeliers hanging on the ceiling are just amazing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: TODAY

The photo challenge this week says that I have to take a picture of something – now and today… without cheating! I found out today’s theme while at work so I decided to take pictures on my way home.

I came from a night shift so I thought the sun would be up when I come out of the hospital.

Before I went home, I dropped by the cafeteria and bought some vegetable noodles to bring home for breakfast.

On my way home. Our place is known as the City of Gardens because everywhere there is greeneries.

Taking a shot while on stoplight. The last intersection before my building.

Taking the stairs on my way to my unit on the fourth floor. Exercise.

The views from where I live.

The morning promises that it’s going to be a great day.

And when the world is about to start their day, mine’s ending. Time to sleep now. Have a great morning, everyone!

Weekly Photo Challenge: SUMMER

Hey guys, I’m back! I was away for about a month, and I definitely missed a lot of blogging and photo challenges.

I traveled to the Philippines to attend to my brother’s wedding, and also to take a short vacation from work. I just got back last Friday.

I’m glad about this week’s photo challenge theme, SUMMER, because that’s what I just did – a summer break!

*********************************

For this week I’m taking you to JED’s ISLAND RESORT where we spent a day having fun – eating, singing, swimming, and taking pictures. A great way to spend summer!

Jed’s Island Resort is one of the most popular resorts in Bulacan. There are so many activities that can be done inside the resort, aside from swimming. A family can rent a videoke machine, and can also go for boating, fishing and horseback riding. There’s a place for billiards and basketball.

The kids will love the different characters scattered around the resort.

A great place for shutter-happy like us.

Playtime!

Swimming time!

What a lovely day!

A Day in Paradise

It was my wife’s birthday.

She only wanted a simple day.

But how could I just let that day pass without even a simple celebration. And because  I couldn’t bring her a dozen roses, I brought her to a million flowers – to a place called “paradise.”

Get ready to treat your eyes…

Al Ain Paradise is a garden park in our city which opens only during spring – a time when flowers  are in full blossom. It holds the Guinness World Record for the largest display of hanging flower baskets.

I dedicate all these flowers to you 🙂

Happy birthday, Mommy 😀

Around the World in 4.5 Hours

Yesterday, we visited the GLOBAL VILLAGE in Dubai.

dubaichronicle.com

Global Village Dubailand is claimed to be the world’s largest tourism, leisure and entertainment project. It is the region’s first cultural, entertainment, family and shopping destination. Every year, it has 6 million visitors over an area of 17,200,000 sq ft (1,600,000 m2).

Global Village started out in the form of a number of kiosks in 1996 located on the Creek Side opposite to Dubai Municipality. It then later shifted to the Oud Metha Area near Wafi City for 5 years.Today, Global Village has 6 million visitors at its current location in DubaiLand. (wikipedia)

This is how it looks like from afar, during the day, 30 minutes early before the gates opened.

Mom and Inigo at the entrance gate

Global Village has over 26 pavilions each representing different countries. We went around the village for 4 1/2 hours try to sample each country’s culture. It was like going around the world for 4.5 hours!
