No More Snow Please

Image
Honestly, I don't need snow anymore. The snow especially last December was already too much. I am just happy that the weather is getting better. I mean, not snowing anymore from the past weeks. Some places in Germany are still experiencing snow but not in our place.

Here is one of the images I took the other week.

I was driving back home when I took this image. I miss the warm weather now. We had sunshine when this photo was taken but the weather was still cold that time.

Wish I'm Home

Image
I always believed in the saying, "There is no place like home". A lot of people had been asking me if I want to go back again in my home country in the future. I already found my second home here in Europe but I always believed, that one day, I will find my way back home.

How I just wish that I am home this time...even just to give comfort especially to a loveone. Sometimes it is just difficult to be away from your loveones but there are always ways where you can meet again....and again!

One of the beautiful scenes I miss from my home country. There is where I used to sit especially in the afternoon watching the beauty as the sun goes down....what a priceless view of nature and I truly miss it!

Life's Burden

"Be assured beyond all doubting,
In the trial you're passing through,
That the Lord's great love and mercy
Is at work for good in you."

I miss this sunset in the Philippines!

The Sunset and the Quote

Image
"It was love that heard my pleadings
When I cried out in my sin;
It was love that gave me comfort;
It was love that took me in."

-Bonney

I miss this sunset in Cebu, Philippines.
This was taken near our house located near the beach. I love this place.

White Beach in Panglao Island, Visayas, Philippines

Image
This is one of the islands that I love in the Philippines. I had been to Panglao Island twice already and if given the chance in the future, I still want to go back there. Panglao is an island located in Central Visayas. It is located southwest of the island of Bohol and east of Cebu. It is considered to be one of the top tourist destination in the Philippines. It is famous for its beautiful dive spots and its coral reefs.

The first time I visited Panglao island was in 2006. Last February of this year, we went back there again. Here is an image I took during my second visit. This is the beautiful while beach of Bohol Beach Club. This is such a priceless view!

Panglao has a terrain that range from plain, hilly to mountainous. Panglao is made of Maribojoc Limestone, the youngest of the limestone units found in the western area of Bohol. The limestone composition halted the development of an airport as coralline limestone is soluble which causes formation of caves and sinkholes.…

Looking at The Sky in Bavaria, Germany

Blue sky with some cotton like clouds
Beautiful yellow raps flowers on the field
Mint-green hills on the background
What a lovely scene to see!
Nature has truly its beauty!

Wolfstein Castle and The Orchids for my Memes

Image
Good day everyone! It is just too hot outside now. I am thankful that we don't need an aircondition inside the house because we live in an old stone house wherein the walls are very thick. If I am not mistaken, the walls ranges from 1 meter until one and a half meters thick. The cold can stay inside for quite a long time. We usually open some of our windows during the night so that the cold wind can come inside the house. During the day, we closed all windows including the blinds to prevent the heat from coming inside.

Here are the images for my memes. Sorry folks, I am quite late.

View From Our Window

Image
Hello peeps! I am here again to give you a little update. I am sharing an image taken during my vacation in my home country. This is the beautiful view from our window. HB said that he want to retire in this small paradise in the future.... in God's will. I also miss this scene. During my vacation this year, I always look at this window every time and wake up. During the afternoon, I also love to watch the sunset over the horizon. Such an amazing scenery!

Yellow Narcissus in Our Garden

Image
I don't have the desire to go online and do blogging for some days. I am feeling always tired due to some work at home and doing some errands. I am quite having a headache at this moment. That is also the reason why I am quite late with my memes. I apologize for that. I am finally sharing these beautiful Narcissus from our garden. They are gone now but I am happy that I kept some pictures from them. I took this image last month. Did you see some red lights from my car and the red tulips too? Have a great day to all!

Tulips from Our Garden and The Castle Tower

Image
What a busy day we had today. I helped hubby again installed three windows today. It is quite dusty because we have to dismantle the old windows to put the new ones. Week by week we are doing it until it is finish. I asked hubby how old those windows are. He said that it is already in the house since he bought the house sometime in the '80s. I was kidding him that maybe it is already a century old. Anyway, I am sharing somes tulips from our little Keukenhof garden and the castle tower that is located just adjacent to our garden. An honor to live near the castle ruins. Have a lovely weekend to all!Feel free to visit and join these wonderful memes; Skywatch Friday,Looking at The Sky Friday, Scenic Sunday and Wordless Wednesday.

Inambakan Falls in Cebu Province, Philippines

Image
Inambakan Falls is located in Ginatilan in the province of Cebu, Philippines. We had an adventure in this place because we really don't know where is the right way to go there but we finally found it. It was a very nice place specially the big waterfalls which they said is around 30 meters high. I was impressed during our visit last Feb. 2010.
The picture above is one of the small falls in Inambakan.

The picture below is a big waterfall. I just took a photo on part of it where the basin can be seen. It is a very nice place to go on picnic or simply visit for relaxing and sightseeing.
