New Site


Hello! Hello!

I decided to move with a new account name just because I realized my favorite nephew has grown up so fast that I just can’t use his name in any account online anymore (guilty! Been using EDREGIN everywhere, hehe')
So for those who would like to read some crazy updates about me, please visit my new abode online http://jblogged.com.
That's all and have a great Tuesday everyone!

Happy Postcrossing


Here I am again talking more about my postcard mission. It's not just about collecting postcards. Won't you love receiving a postcard where a sender explains something about the photo or providing you a short fact of one's country? Or won't you get excited receiving a postcard with great birthday greetings? or won't you feel glad knowing new stuff like this?


The 3D postcard I got from The Netherlands
(seriously I came to know there's 3D postcards available only when I get this!)
You can view the card this way


or this way...awesome!





from U.S.A (I just love the pasted photo')
Finding how creative the sender is just great!
(I joined postcrossing at Travbuddy & this is one of the many I got)



loves it when I get a postcard from a place where I've already been
(Senado Square - Reminiscing moments ititch!)



Me at the Senado Square in Macau from last year's holiday
(patagilid at malayong shot para nga payat tingnan,lol!)



I can't wait for more postcards to receive...
so far I got 08..I know some are on the way & hoping to receive them soon
thank you all for granting my request' kisses* xxx




This is fun and exciting! I think you should try to do the same =)

P.S

Sorry photos are taken from my cheapang na mobile

Unexpected Parcel


How lovely! I was really surprised when I got a phone call from FEDEX. Although I was expecting for a parcel from someone I didn't expect I would get something via Fedex (there must be a mistake on sending this parcel, lol!). I asked who the sender was but the guy whom I was talking to over the phone didn't answer my question instead he said my parcel is about to be delivered in an hour's time.

I was glad to receive the parcel especially when I figured out who the sender was. It was from a former classmate whom I haven't seen for ages (the last time was when we were in grade III as they have migrated to Australia). Got reconnected with him along with our other batch mates after finding him at Friendster and we get updated of ourselves via Facebook now (oooppss! Sorry friendster).



Thanks for this igso!...

OK. You may ask why I got this parcel? Well I emailed a bunch of friends who are based at different countries for my post card mission (collecting 34 postcards from 34 countries before my 34th birthday) and he is one among them...whom I requested for a postcard. But I was expecting for a postcard to be sent via post office so the fedex thing was really a surprise especially with what's inside the envelope aside from the postcards he's sent me.



The photo's dark right? But what you see is right!
It's a Christmas and a Happy New Year Card...
(because he said he forgot to greet me on these occasions? lol!)
(so I texted him & I asked where's the Valentines card, lol!)



A postcard from Frankfurt & Prague (where he has been recently)
But I don't know if this counts to my mission as it's not with a post office seal
...
Probably I should count them in just because...
(the effort exerted to look for these postcards teh!)



And a birthday card which has a German greeting inside! lol!
(Apart from his hand written message of course)
Thanks a lot igso! You're so sweet!

All the while I was thinking you were just kidding...
about the German Birthday card you bought for me! :D


P.S

Writing this post makes me miss his mom. We used to write to each other when I was still in Elementary and she's the Godmother who never forgets to send me something during Christmas even they're far away.

Speaking of writing and missing chovachuchu...don't you just miss snail mails now?! :D

Sand Bank Experience


Have you ever been in a sand bank? After many years of living here I finally was able to visit one. While holidaying at Bathala Island Resort for Christmas (can I call it holiday if we stay for 02 nights only?) Lola V and I joined the excursion called "Sandbank Cocktail Party" on Christmas day (it was a complimentary trip for us so why would we give it a miss?! diba?) I am very thankful for this "robinson crusoe" like experience.

I know I just came back from a short holiday but I can't help it. The photos I came across from my photo folders made me long for a resort/island break soon (a place where I do nothing but to just relax). A real holiday isn't it?! Wondering now when can I leave and go. I wish I could have the same trip again (holidaying in a resort is the best!). Sigh^ I imagined myself now in a sand bank...champagne in hand with the sunset as a backdrop' I can only wish coz miracles doesn't happen everyday!


the staff setting up the tables...



my signature pose :D
(patagilid at malayo para payat tingnan, lol!)




tables are ready for the coctail party



and Lola V with her first glass of wine...
(pila may nainom mo lola?! :D)




here's a video I took of the sandbank...nice diba?!
(when is the next time na makapunta ako!?!?)




P.S

All photos and the video was taken from my cheapang phone
Bit blurry but I do like the photos parang kuha lang sa panaginip :D

Dine & Shop


Srilanka is just an hour's flight away from Maldives thus no wonder why expats & locals could frequent Colombo
(the capital of the country) anytime..From time to time special airfares are launched and due to that we normally take advantage of the promo (when I went there last week I purchased a return airfare for US$ 189 only). So anyway what I am trying to tell here is that with my recent visit (after my 08th-10th visit I think) I discovered something I should share with you (how come I came to know of this refreshment area just recently?). I know the place and have been here before but didn't try the Cafe' prrffft!

If you happen to be in Colombo I suggest that you visit Paradise Road Cafe (this is only if you are a lover of cheesecake!). I may sound exaggerated but the best cheesecake I have ever tasted was at this place. I am not a cake lover but this one is just so yummy!



Double Cheesecake @ 575rupees around 5usd (if I remember it right)
I remember the taste but the price? oh! :D


By the way this place is not just a cafe but actually a shop where you can find good selection of collectibles, gift items, houseware stuff. So this cafe was added to serve the tired customers from shopping at the 2nd floor of the building or the vice versa. Either eating light meals first before you shop! You know I can stay at this place the whole day (ahihihi!) With that I say now I know why they didn't install wifi connection here :D



Paradise Road Cafe



The Cafe (there's an extension of Veranda too)



Selection of Table runners



The white room (selection of cups etc')



Fruit Jam corner and selection of place mats


and a lot more photos of the shop






Their Address:
Paradise Road Cafe
213 Dharmapala Mawatha Colombo 7
(easy to find ...all tuktuk or taxi drivers know this place I guess)

Short Break


I told myself not to travel again yet but I wasn't strong enough with my decision. I can't believe I made it to travel without a plan of going (I mean I didn't think about it much!). I thought of traveling the night before my departure (purchased the ticket late in the afternoon - an hour before the Airline's Male office closes) and packed at night before my early morning flight.


Guess where my itchy feet brought me...Can you guess?! :D

(nyaay! sorry dirty feet I walked and walked only with this travel)



OK. This was actually because of my friend Jen. She was off to Srilanka (on a transit and heading to Shanghai after two days) and she was actually like "would you like to join?" So basically she was one of the reasons aside from feeling burned out that I thought I really should travel and unwind a bit even for 04 nights. Spur of the moment decision and it turned out to be a good holiday so no regrets even when alone when Jen left. What about you? Have you ever tried to travel on a last minute decision?
