Flora & Fauna Expo

Ascertain Bliss came to glance a flora and fauna expo held at World Trade Center last week_The Philippine International Flora and Fauna Green Living.

Was happy and proud to find some photos of my home town's community blog _ Guinayangan Republic on exhibit in the Klub Natur's booth.




see more of these photos on Guinayangan Republic's blog site. click here to visit the site.

After a short stop at Klub Natur, we continued to explore the expo and found some interesting fauna booths.

There were some animals indigenous to Philippine fauna.

The bees' buzz intrigued us and made us stop longer than planned.

bee wax, a popular ingredient of lipstick

No flora nor fauna, these rechargeable bikes caught our interest. No gas needed and off to go to your destination.

Environment- friendly bikes that say no to hazardous air from gas powered motorcycles. For sale for P23 k per unit.

We actually arrived at WTC an hour less, near the closing time of the exhibit. That's to say we didn't have enough time to catch all the greens of the expo. Nevertheless, with that short span, we were able to learn more things about nature and appreciate the wonders of our Philippine fauna and flora. able to score some organic loots too. Happiness;D

Water Colors

In my lovely 3rd world country_ it's right now night rainy season. When the clock strikes a lil' whille after midnoon, the sky begins to darken and makes sounds as if to warn us that she's going to pour any minute then. True enough, it never fails to rain in the afternoon til' early night_daily  this month.

Yet my minds travels back to recent summer nights. When the sky was starry and kind. Night swimming was awesome and sweet. Kaleidoscope pool was beaming, colors were saturating up into our own skin.

Ohh, I miss night swim in the pool with 7 colors. I miss nights without rain out pours.

Big Waves





When I was a kid, big waves frightened me. I was so afraid of them I failed to learn how to swim, even though I hailed from a town nestled beside a gulf. I remember as a young girl, the sea was part of my playground. Lucky I was _ I grew up in a picturesque town as my playground. The whole yard of it, with rivers, mountains and hills to complete the scene. If you were like me who grew up in such a town with nature abound , you couldn't help but be a nature lover all the way thru' to adulthood and naturally passed it on to your own children.

My girls also have it on them_ the love for mother nature. The only difference is that they are not afraid of big waves. On the contrary, they enjoy swimming against the huge waves, and yes they learned how to swim.

Another Tale of Cujo

Cujo's day out continued to the beach. From the palm wood, he refused to walk the trail to reach the sea.

He was carried like a prince up until he got curious with the huge body of water beside the shore and asked for himself to get down.

Another first for this city pup, he got a taste of the salty water, swam a little and quickly turned his plumpy haired body to a limp-y haired boned structure.

Cujo recovered immediately and went ahead to explore the cove with us.

Finally, we found a shed beside a residential hut and took a rest. After a while Cujo could no longer bear the mid-noon heat and asked to be brought inside the air cooled car. He stayed inside the car while watching us enjoyed harvesting fruits from the trees .
