Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel

And we checked out from JZS at 12PM the next day.  I must admit, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray is the hotel that will keep me coming back.  The hotel itself is just amazing, the room is homey and the SPA is the best.  What else can I say 😊

And we ran down to JAN, Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel, the newest hotel or the new member of the Jumeirah Group.  It is located between Madinat Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab.

I know, I know that this is too much hotel tour.  But sometime, we deserve to be happy too.  A little reward for ourselves who works for 50 hours a week, we deserve to pamper ourselves.

Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel

So, after fishing in Ajman, and didn't get any fish 😁   I jinx it.

Oh well, on the same day, I got an invitation from a friend to join the weekend-get-away, since we have a long weekend.

We checked in at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray and got an upgrade, how lucky was that and I got my own room.  The room is beautiful and there's a homey feeling, though we didn't stay that much in the room, rather we were enjoying the sun and getting some colors.  We went to Talise SPA as well and for me, the best SPA in town.

This is the view from the JZS balcony.

For the first few hours we stayed in the pool and get some colors and finally decided to go to the beach.  The Palm's concrete walls in my background.

Fishing in Ajman, UAE

To have a chill weekend I joined my colleagues Carlos and Arian for fishing.  We drove to Ajman and it was windy and slightly cold morning.

This photo was taken at Al Hamriya, Open Beach in Ajman.

As we arrived in this place, the fishing area was closed, so we looked for a possible place to fish.

I liked the experience of rough road.
So we ended up in this fishing area near the concrete walls in Ajman.

Unfortunately, we didn't get any fish, I think I am a jinx 😅  I am looking for next week's luck.

Happy 4th birthday to my nephew Dominic!

I wish you to grow up God-fearing person with full of love and gratitude.

Dubai Timelapse took my breath away.


Araw ng Kagitingan

The "Death March" after the surrender of Bataan on April 9 was considered one of the major Japanese cruel act.  The prisoners were made to walk to Bataan, a trek of 100 kilometers under the summer heat and with less food and water.

My favorite color


Araw ng Kagitingan

Ilan pa sa atin ang handang ipag-laban ang ating bayan na katulad nila?  Sana imulat ang mga kabataan sa tunay na pagmamahal ng ating bayan.

This is my old profile from the now defunct Angelfire.  This was the time, that I started HTML coding way back 1997-1998.

Past is past.

I got this image from the "On This Day" in Facebook.  Looking at the date, I can still remember the struggle that I've been.
