Soiree Beaujolais – Streets of Paris at The Tent City, Manila Hotel on November 21


Soiree Beaujolais 2013 will be held in Manila Hotel's Tent City on November 21, 2013, its annual festival brought here by the French Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines. This event is celebrated in the French region of Beaujolais in every 3rd Thursday of November. The event is also inline with the launch of Beaujolais Nouveau, an upcoming wine brand that came from the Beaujolais Region.

One of the fest highlights is to bring a 2-3 months old wine. I haven't try that yet and also not yet attended a French culture fest here in Manila, so I'm very confused about it. I failed to attend the launch few weeks ago, they explained everything about the nature of their annual festival,but a little wikipedia helped me understand about their festival.

Undas 2013: in Tayabas Municipal Cemetery

Im now here in my grandparents tomb. Sad news.. Looters destroyed tomb again, but this time they didn't steal anything. Bec my grandma who died in 1972, doesnt wear any jewelry when she was buried here. The damn looters took a chance again to destroy lots of tombs here in Tayabas.

I called my sis via Tango app video conference and she saw the situation here

Thanks to Mang Baldo for taking care again these tombs. Thanks to his daughter Angeline for the coordination with me.

Grave gold thieves destroyed my grandparents tomb in Tayabas, Quezon part 2

PB019019
My first post was last year 2012 - http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/2012/10/grave-gold-thieves-destroyed-my.html, I’m posting an update here about what happened to my grandparent’s tomb that was destroyed by looters, their initial motive is to steal jewelries, gold teeth, metals in casket and knee bones.

The knee bones are being sold as amulet to old people,but I’m sure many of the looters target metal objects, because they can sell it to junk shops, they use the dirty money in buying illegal drugs, I learned about this after our tomb care taker Mang Kaldo texted us and reported to us the incident, and
I told them to repair it immediately, and after 6 days we visited the site and there I learned that drug addicts from outside the town are the main suspects. No suspects were caught after the incident, because all illegal activities occur at night.

Micro 4/3 add on goodies! - my wish list

074323756_d5d1289fad510e81b3e8c498ff11993756f539fe
I've been scrolling around the website of Filters Exchange and I saw that they have lots of add on accessories for the micro 4/3 camera system. I got an interest to purchase some and I will acquire these one by one. Its so hard to get add ons for micro 4/3 here in the country, but I'm glad that we have Filters Exchange.

I’m still searching for more stores that sell micro 4/3 add ons, in the past I saw two popular gadget store that sells lots of Olympus micro 4/3 accessories but then after the Multiply.com shutdown, they build up their own shopping website and almost all Olympus stuff are already removed from their list.

I f you know a store that sells micro 4/3 goodies, just let me know by posting a comment below

Masuki beef noodles–dinner after the Philippine Fashion Week 2013

In every coverage that I do in a fashion show of Philippine Fashion Week 2013, there’s no available time for me to eat a snack, because my time is very precious in every fashion brand’s presentation, I attend there as a blogger and photographer, and I always stay there at the photographers area and not sitting down at the audience area.
