In our country, whatever happens, we always celebrate Christmas in this holidays. Make it simple or grand, together with family and friends is really important for us.
Every town/villages has their own Christmas decorations and most of them are Parols/Lanterns and creations from Christmas Lights. The pictures here was taken last year when I was visited my relative and friend in Bataan. With this pandemic of Covid-19, it would be hard to travel from one place to another, but I am sure that in the same place, they put a different style or design of Christmas decors and light.
This will symbolize that after this darkness from Covid-19, there will be light to look forward to on the next year to come. We are all praying that the vaccine will really cure this virus.
In the days of lockdown because of this pandemic of Covid-19, I activated my Social Media Platforms that almost years I never touch, one of this is twitter. Suddenly, I received a message from this account which fortunately a band from Las Vegas. They sent me a sample of their masterpiece which is “Far Far Away”
I love their song, reminds me when I’m working overseas and miss all the sweet moments of my family and friends in Philippines. Everytime I’m going back home, there’s an excitement to see them and hug them. And their song is really fit to those people who really wants to spend quality time with their family but separated by miles and oceans away.
If you have a long travel or a road trip you can listen to their songs and it’s worth the drive. I know most of us will going back to our provinces because of this holiday season then try to play this.
“.. going far far away,
im going back home
to the hills and sky of blue
I’m coming to you..”
For more info regarding this band, here’s the link of their website.
When I travel in one place, I normally look for a museum that would tell me everything about the place or about the people or person.
I’ve been in Tagaytay for quite sometime and I just try to check this Museo Orlina. I am amaze on the artwork, the glass sculpture of Architect Ramon Orlina.
Glass sculpture is a creative but dangerous way to express oneself. You will need a protective gear and equipments because of the process with a certain degrees of heat to form that glass on what design you want. Some they do molds from clay. Most of the process in glass sculpture are Glass blowing, Hot Sculpting and Cold Working. The artist will do a variety of techniques to create a masterpiece.
How to go to Museum Orlina? If you come from Sta Rosa Exit going to Tagaytay Flower Market, It’s near Econo Hotel and a small street going down, you can see a Signage at the corner. But if you come from Olivarez, you can ride a jeepney going to People’s Park and tell the driver to drop you off at Museo Orlina.
There is an entrance fee for general admission it will cost P130 and for the PWD, Student and Senior Citizen will be P100. You can check the link below for more info/details.
Year 2020 is really a big challenge for everyone. And it makes history that will never forget in our world. But there is really something that to look forward to and being positive in our thoughts.
It’s the true meaning of Christmas. Give love and adore the baby Jesus in our hearts. As they said, Christmas is for kids to enjoy and seeing their big smiles on the gifts that they will receive. But Christmas is for young at hearts too. Do not forget that we are once a child and having childish traits to relax and pause a while.
One of the nearest place to spend this Christmas Season is in Tagaytay. They have this Christmas Village at Crosswinds Tagaytay that you can spend quality time with your family and friends. Taking selfie’s and groupie’s to the Christmas decor as well as to feel the breeze of the season.
There is no entrance fee but still observe the social distancing and safety precautions of wearing face masks and face shields. It will be open from day time till 7pm.
