The different versions of POCAHONTAS

POCAHONTAS NAME

POCAHONTAS has always been my favorite Disney princess (I have to say this as I am not that fond of the story). I like her image of being native, strong and nature lover. Everything about her speaks of simplicity…

She does have this FAMILY vs. LOVE angle, which many of us in real life encounters. Also, the animals here are very likeable, though at first he is a villain, Percy the Pug really catches my attention (as mentioned in my other entries, I am a Pug lover :)).

H.I.D Burgers (Cainta Rizal)

Nearby our office is a burger joint that one should try if you’re fed up off the usual burgers from fast food chains. A new flavor, mix to try without putting too much dent in your budget.

Beef, cheese, lettuce and bun all creamed up in a delicious sauce. These are the basics for your perfect burger.

H.I.D Burgers added their own flavor and style in this all time favorite meal. We visited last Wednesday after office, to satisfy our craving… and so we go… and we went home HAPPY and FULL 🙂

I ordered the Bacon Mushroom Melt with add on fries and It is delightful! The next time I go there I’ll have the Sicilian Burger.

Bacon Mushroom Melt with add on fries (Php 110 + 40)

A few comments though: The serving is quite slow (we waited for more than 10 minutes), the beverages are sold in a different store (which is next door), not too much light in the dining area. The place is not air-conditioned (but I find this okay :)).

It is in the corner of Phoenix Gas Station (before Vista Verde – If you’re from junction), so parking for your vehicle is never a problem.

For a budget of Php 175 you’re all set to a good burger meal.

But she’s best not just in love stories for she did a great job in Morning Glory (also, I really love her hair in that movie, look at that bangs).

Not only that but this Canadian fights for her beliefs. She’s a member of different organizations with a cause and get this… she is an environmentalist. Surely not just a pretty face but a very good heart.

Tagaytay 2014

These days are the best ones to go travelling in Tagaytay… The cold breeze will keep you energized for a long day of adventure.

We spend a whole day going around… with packed food, a few bucks and good company, we’re ready to go!

Rowena’s, The Pink sisters convent, Picnic Grove, People’s park and Sky Ranch is our itinerary. Our first stop was Rowena’s as we want our pockets full upon buying pasalubongs and we fear that it’ll be closed when we go home. Next is the pink sisters convent, wherein we get to have peace and guidance. The chapel speaks of silent sanctuary so you get to pray and write your petition after.

Just in time for lunch, we arrived at Picnic grove to eat… It really is windy! but this is best place for me on the trip as this is where I really laugh so hard my heart aches to the point that its hard to breathe 🙂 (talk about good times) we paid for an entrance fee of Php 50.00

IMG_7002

IMG_3026

People’s park was a disappointment as it really is old and abandoned. (imagine a set for an action movie where they keep their hostage), we paid for an entrance fee worth Php 30.00. There are a lot of souvenir shops in the parking area, The shirts ranges from Php 120-150 depending on the size.

The highlight of the day was our Sky Ranch experience which I reviewed in another entry.

https://tribobot.wordpress.com/2014/01/17/skyranch/

Our last stop was in Mahogany market where we buy fruits and eat bulalo. They have an area where there’s an array of carinderias serving the famous special bulalo and tawilis. (Prices: Bulalo 350 good for 4 pax and tawilis 400 good for 6 pax)… Try them as they’re really a comfort food on that cold temperature.

So there goes my Tagaytay 2014 experience.

Happy, TRIBOBOT 🙂

SKYRANCH Amusement Park

Amusement Parks has always been a hit to children and to the child at heart which is most of us. We all crave for adrenaline rush, that wonderful feeling of excitement… there are only few choices when it comes to such parks in the country, and so we are thankful that another one launches late last year…

 

SKYRANCH beside Taal Vista Hotel is the newly opened amusement park in the country. Compared to your usual park which is large in size, this may seem little. But it very well compensates on other things, view and fresh air.

With Tagaytay’s cold weather you’ll never feel tired here. Best to spend the day with family and friends, the place has a lot to offer.

Based from our visit last January 11. There are 2 rides that I recommend – SUPER VIKING which offers a 12 minute arm waving and screaming reactions. For me, this is more exciting than Anchors Away…

Then after that rush, you can go easy (unless you’re afraid of heights) with SKY EYE, the tallest Ferris Wheel in the country to date, but it only goes at one round… so this come in as a little disappointment.

Fact: Sky Eye, at 63 meters (207 ft),  MOA Eye at 55 meters (180 ft), and the Enchanted Kingdom’s Wheel of Fate at 130ft.

There are numerous rides appropriate for children, they will enjoy more with the mini viking, nessie coaster, express train, orb and others. Restaurants such as Leslie’s, KFC, Kenny Rogers etc are available in the area. They also have a venue (tent style) for your events. Horseback riding is also available at Php 250 / 30 minutes.

I have posted ticket prizes for your reference. They do not have a ride all you can ticket, so you really have to buy one of each for every ride. As for their entrance fee, they have a half price off discount which will last until May 2014. So for a hundred you’ll only pay Php 50. Taal Vista Checked-In guest get in for free, and Kids below 3 ft are free for the entrance fee and the carousel ride. Park schedule is from 8AM-10PM. They also charge for Parking fee worth Php 50.

TICKET PRICE

Contact No.: 862.77.01 / 862.77.04
Address: Aguinaldo Highway Tagaytay (Beside Taal Vista Hotel)

Visit and experience this new place and go home happy 🙂

COOL STOP

Want to sing your heart out with friends?  If you are in Cainta area, then I’ve got a perfect place for you.

COOL STOP KTV Bar Resto (at the back of Brickroad in Sta Lucia Grandmall)

For a rate of Php 200.00 per hour you get to have a videoke room of your own,  with a capacity of 10 people (maximum).  They also have a good deal with their drinks which is a 6+1 beer package.

IMG_0567

IMG_0568

IMG_0554

note: Order their beef nachos (Php 190.00) This is a new favorite! Also, the place is surrounded by other food stores that you can order and have them delivered in the room. Isn’t that convenient? Try something in Manila Wings… to add chicken and spice.

Just the right size of air-conditioned room, average videoke set, good and prompt service, cold beer, good food and crazy friends. All these things add up to a fun night.

Visit the place and have a good time. Oh, oh, wooh, wooh, oh, oh!

A Libra’s guide to 2014

2014 is finally here… What’s ahead has always been a question to all of us whose curious. A glimpse of the future has always been a dream, Thankfully, there are horoscopes, astrology, card reading etc… that’s gives us an impression if not a reality of what is ahead.

And so for Libras like me, let’s see what 2014 will somehow look like.

2014 WORK HOROSCOPE

Career would go into a phase of expansion after July 2014. There would be rise in activity, opportunities, expansion & hard work. While gains might not be to your expectation but still there would be some exceptional expansion and exposure to new areas.

A temptation to indulge in dangerous or illegal activity could come up too. You need to say no, clearly and without any doubts.

An overall easing of pressures and the beginning of a steadier period at work would commence after November 2014.

2014 LOVE HOROSCOPE

2014 will be not easy in terms of relationships during the first half of the year. Since last year there has been a trend of being dissatisfied in relationships whether in marriage or romance. This is largely due to an over expectation or unrealistic expectations from partner. This trend would continue till July 2014, once you cross this period your level of satisfaction will return in relationships once again. Even your personal temperament which had become very tough and demanding over the last one year would ease out substantially after July this year. There are chances that after this phase gets over; you might rush into a relationship which is not totally overboard. Certain secret relationships and connections are possible in the second half of the year.

Love life will be interesting and positive for you during the months of April, mid July to early August, September, mid October to mid November and most of December 2014. Second half of the year is more conducive towards building up better relationships

2014 MONEY / FINANCE HOROSCOPE

2014 would start off on an average footing as the year commences. Your expenses would be high & unnecessary expenses would come about mostly during January. Luck would support you till March, after which there would be high chances of losing money, wasteful expenses & indulgences as well as possibility of a severe financial crunch. This phasewould continue till May 2014 & utmost care as well as planning is required in finances.

2014 GENERAL HOROSCOPE

Family matters might become a bit challenging. You need to be very careful about how you speak, because you might loose people around you due to your speech. Decision making could be very unreliable during the month of January 2014. Avoid major decisions. Overall still a good year.

This is just an impression, a guide of what’s in the future. Keep in mind that It is you who create your future, through your decisions, talents and relationship to others.

Just to add, here are some images that’ll describe a Libra.
