preview of GI JOE diorama and set up in Makati

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

Glen of Toy Soldier 1:18 sent this MMS photos to me awhile ago showing their set up in Legazpi Park. I failed to attend this event and I'm requesting for a repeat act and I know many will be interested to see another diorama set up.

I was there at Sangley Point in Cavite City to board the Balangay boat and meet its crew.
It's a great opportunity to be on board of the mighty balangay, thanks to San Miguel Properties for giving full support for the unity and voyage of the Balangay. I will post a story tomorrow about their voyage and the crew's story.

I'll meet and ride the Balangay boat later
photo source

The Balangay, a traditional and ancient boat used by our ancestors in traveling around the country and out to open sea during old times, the Balangay was revived by The Kaya ng Pinoy Foundation to sail around the Philippines, and this historical voyage will show that The Balangay's legacy of our ancestors being carried by the new generations and symbolizes the Filipino people's ingenuity, resiliency, strength, courage and unity.

I think this Balangay is version 2, and far more different from the 1st one I saw and featured in my old blog post last year - Historic event : The Maiden Voyage of the Balangay

I'm going to join in a tour and journey later, I just hope that I woke up early for our Cavite trip. And omg.. I live in Cavite, but I need to go to Manila for the transpo service. Im excited to meet the Balangay again and also ride in it, hope there will be a good weather and no big waves.

Robot pet bird and my 30 minute shopping finds @ Tiendesitas

a motion sensor Robotic pet bird that activates chirping sound and bird actions (P300), I bought one for baby Ashton.

I participated in a 30 minute shopping challenge last night in Tiendesitas, I was with other beauty and fashion bloggers to take a test on that new Rexona Clinical Protection, it was a tough challenge because I need to test it myself applying 2 clicks of the under arm deo at night and then never apply a deo in the morning, I didn't even take a bath just to test it. Well I'm glad that my under arm is still fresh and has no bad odor after the whole hot and sweaty, and its cool because Rexona didn't let me down. That's my short story today, and here are some interesting items that I saw in Tiendesitas.

I'm still arguing with my internet connection here at home, and still beating a design deadline, nursing this painful plantar fasciitis and taking care of my little boy with colds, these are some reasons why I can blog more this week. I promise I'll post more na after this big activity in SM MOA.

I bought this Mazinger Z shirt for only P280
