Free Postal Heritage tour, it tell stories of the past has seen numerous events,
from the American  government to the Philippine Commonwealth,  the 2nd
Philippine Republic to the liberation of the Manila, and finally the independence
in 1946.
we always had a good view of El Hogar atop this building

through Rence's free tour, me and my friends saw and heared of El Hogar for
the first time. its flanked by the First City National Building on the right, and
the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Building on its rear.
built sometime between 1911-1914, as a wedding present.

bustos bulacan lakad pamana

Yesterday was Valentines day, a festival of romantic love and many people give
cards, letters, flowers or presents to their spouse or partner. They may also
arrange a romantic meal in a restaurant or night in a hotel. Common symbols
of Valentine's Day are hearts, red roses and Cupid.....

but I know  yesterday  will be different. because the lovely girlfriend I am supposed
to date was busy with work and photo shoot which should be top priority, and its
so happens that 2 of my good friends don't have their dates with their boyfriends...
and so....

a Chinese New Year experience

The Chinese New Year is the most important of the holidays for the Chinese. It is
defined to be the first day of the first month in the traditional Chinese calendar.
Unlike the Christian New Year, which is based on a solar calendar, the Chinese
New Year is based on a traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar whose date indicates
both the moon phase and the time of the solar year an extra month is inserted every
few years. This is why, according to the solar calendar, the Chinese New Year falls
on a different date each year.

This festivity is the time for family reunion, which is the most important part of the
Chinese New Year celebration.
People will normally visit relatives and friends, do some shopping, watch traditional
Chinese shows, launch fireworks, and plan for the coming year. The celebration will
sometimes be highlighted with a religious ceremony given in honor of heaven, earth,
the family ancestors and other gods.

Yesterday, Lunar Chinese new years eve, I decided to join Lawrence's
postal  heritage tour since its been quite a while(5 months since I last
had a walking tour around the Streets of Manila).

am back again.

When you are used to writing and sharing your thoughts online, the week seems
kind of lacking when you're unable to write a blog. It’s not because you were lazy
but simply because you were busy.

Right on. So as you may already know, I have had a blog at Blog
spot, used  the service for more than a year. and due to a busy schedule ,
problems at work, and a slightly colorful lovelife ... I’ve left some of my activities
slightly neglected.

after almost 6 months of being inactive....

I think I’ll give it a go again, I’ll take the self-imposed shackles off and just write
about the stuff regarding my work  and everything that interests me. Who knows where
that will take me. I don’t particularly care about being an expert in anything, but rather
an explorer of lots of different things. from men's hobbies to how a 40 something person
takes a shot again at being young and in love. I’m in a huge learning phase of my life, so
again, a blog seems like an interesting place to share that stuff, just the way I started to
do all those a few months back.

So, hey. Welcome me (back?) to LOVERBOYZ AVENUE.

til here. this is your LOVERBOY Dennis Signing out.
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR and Advance Happy Hearts day
