This is life. There are things that are painful and beyond our control, things that are predestined to happen to us. The pain of separation is so intense this time and in this depressing period in my life. But I am glad we had spent some time with my sister before she sojourned abroad. If we could just keep our family intact and complete everyday, what a wonderful life it would be, but we have our individual dreams, struggles and opportunities and to live the life we choose to live. Only God knows what will happen to me, but I am hoping we will see each other again in one or two years time or whenever the Lord will bring this family together again. This time could have been the perfect time for us, but the pains and hurt I believe will make us grow, in bond and love. The tears that we shed will be rewarded with joy the time when we will be together again. Lord please take care of my sister. She is strong and faithful to you, guide her in every way in the foreign land. Comfort us and make us hope and look forward to that blessed time in the future. And for us who are still with our families, my sister is right. We might have wasted many times but we still have a chance to savor every moment with them.

Need of travel of insurance

Feb 17, 2009 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: facitilies and services, Travels

As much as we need to have a health insurance, we also need travel insurance especially those who are traveling a lot for business and for leisure. All of the travelers are hoping to have a safe and enjoyable travel, but there are really cases that we encounter problems or accidents along the way. It is always good to be prepared ahead of time not that we are anticipating it to happen but we should be insured.

George Bush Intercontinental airport

Dec 21, 2008 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: Travels

It was the same flight and schedule, traveling by reward and by early flight reservation, same flight route and same feeling: excitement and contentment because I was going home for a vacation. I had a good time waiting for the next flight leg from Houston. I was so glad I opted for my rolling carry on bag and placing my laptop on top, over the shoulder bag where I could put the notebook computer inside. I knew it would be very heavy on me with all my carry on items inside with all the walking and going to my designated terminal. Houston George Bush Intercontinental airport is the sixth largest airport in the world and the fourth in the United States.

Frontier trivia of the day:

By land mass, the biggest airport in the world is hosted by the oil-rich Saudi Arabia, the King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, which covers some 81 square miles, larger than some cities. This airport has four terminals, yet only three have ever been used. Denver International Airport takes 53 sq. miles.

Tagum City christmas tree

Dec 21, 2008 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: arts and culture, holidays, Philippines, Travels

I did not spend my Christmas in the Philippines last year, but I was able to see the record-high Christmas tree that was built in Freedom Park. In 2006 it was the highest Christmas tree nationwide, but last year it was divided into two equal lengths, the other half was giving lights to the people around the public market. They were tremendous. This year they are just fabulous with all the other Christmas lights and displays, they are very entertaining and ‘joy-giving’. May yours is full.


Umbrella of colors

It was just a quick passing glance but I recognized it right away! It was the Philippine ‘colors’. We were strolling through the Riverwalk shopping center in New Orleans two months ago and those lovely national flags in a form of an umbrella were hanging up high in the store’s display. I smiled in national pride seeing my country’s flag there.

Leading hotels in the world

The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Built in 1903, a 105-year old heritage building containing 565 rooms including 46 suites, and is considered one of the “Leading hotels in the world”. The hotel incorporates a taste of style and collection of priceless paintings and works of art in the era it covers. This was during our first tour in Mumbai in 2006.

At the Taj Mahal Hotel

Taj Mahal Hotel

This is me in Mumbai, India with the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel on the background. This was during our second tour to the Gateway of India, with Paul the driver. It was safe and peaceful then which I am so thankful. It is just so sad that the seaborne terrorist attack not just damaged the building, but killed almost two hundred people, poor clueless and so defenseless people and tourists in a strange land. I know just how it feels, but the terror and fear on that day and the reason of the attack is beyond comprehension.

Frontier trivia of the day:

The best rooms in the superior old wing of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel cost more than £250 per night, India’s best-known and best-loved hotel in the heart of its commercial and financial capital.
