My De’Longhi Christmas Wishlist!!!!

Being a Single Lifestyle Blogger, doesn't mean I don't have any passion in cooking. That most of our time, went into writing blogs, attending events, going out in dates & partying all night. Definitely, some of us, also, has some skills in cooking. Either, we practice cooking regularly if we had free time or it runs within the veins of our family blood line. Infact, i love to cook "pinakbet" ,an ilocano dish, balatong or black beans, vegestable/meat/chicken recipes and pork steak for my family and loved-ones. Though, sometimes, I mixed up ingredients for experiments. Eventually, it turns out the way I expected "delicioso".  Just an average and a slight mouth watering meal for the day. Ofcourse, they're obliged to eat my dish or else, they're forbidden to eat my next delightful dish for lunch on the following Day.  Nevertheless, my family still longing for my unique food recipes.

I remembered those occassions, when, i'm in-charged to cooked the pork barbecue in the grill that my mom marinated with her secret ingredients. I wanna bring her memories back by starting to cook again. By cooking and having that fabulous equipment will bring hapiness to our family. So, I could cooked for them like my mom usually do everyday for us. She unconditionally shows affection and care by cooking our favorite foods and her famous gelatin & buco pandan deserts. 

Being Single allows me to share my precious time with my family. That is all that matters and thats what makes me happy. I believe, that by Cooking good food for them, its like i've already cooked delightful dishes for my mom. Paying it forward for all the healthy foods that she served on our table. 

By using De'Longhi Kitchen Appliance, it gives a warmth feeling of Appreciation for all the Mothers and Single Ladies out there who loves cooking for their Family.

PhilBikeExpo2016: A Bonding Activity for Filipino Families!!!!

PhilBike Expo Marks 3 Years of Pure Appreciation of Cycling

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus, you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.-Ernest Hemingway   

The PhilBike Expo, the only international-standard trade and consumer cycling show in the Philippines, returns for its third annual convention this November. The event kicks off on Nov. 25 and allows cycling enthusiasts’ access to the most diverse range of local and international products and demonstrations.

Organized by Phil-Bike Convention Inc., the event has seen over 17,000 enthusiasts pack convention centers for two years.

To mark its third year anniversary, this year’s expo shall be headlined by a few of the best in the sport today:

Kenny Belaey
Regarded as one of the biggest names in the bike trail world scene, “The Magician” Kenny Belaey is a 24-year veteran of the sport. Since his debut in 1992, Belaey has brought the sport to the mainstream as a constant innovator and professional. He is the record holder of the most medals won at the World Cup and World Championships. His latest video project, “Balance”, saw him crossing a slackline on the top of the French Alps, a feat that had yet to be accomplished by any other biker before him.

Yu Shoji
The Superkids are Japanese prodigies made up of Yu Shoji (14) and Takumi Isogai (15). This dynamic duo has been making a name in the Flatland scene with their cutting edge and flair for pushing innovation to its limits. Shoji is the first place winner of the 2015 Voodoo Jam and the second runner-up for the 2014 FlatArk Novice. Isogai was the first place winner of the 2014 FlatArk Expert and came in at eighth place for the 2016 FlatDev Pro.

Takumi Isogai

Accompanying the Superkids is their mentor, Viki Gómez, who is returning to PhilBike for the second year in a row. Hailed as one of the best in the world, the 35-year-old Spaniard is known for his constant creation of new tricks that combine flow and rhythm and surpassing the limits of imagination. The Red Bull athlete is a three-time Champion of the Flatland World Circuit Series, as well as a three-time Red Bull Circle of Balance Champion. He is also a two-time winner of the European X-Games.

Viki Gómez

Rounding out this incredible line-up is a special, one-day only performance from Canadian,

Geoff Gulevich. With a career that started at the age of 12, the Rocky Mountain Bicycle ambassador is among the best in his field, combining passion with a strong sense of perseverance that sets him apart from his peers. He is the fourth runner-up for Jumpship 2011, and came in fifth for both the Red Bull Rampage 2010 and the Crankworx Joyride 2011.

The event will bring together over 100 brands from the world of cycling and fitness, giving enthusiasts and first-timers alike, the chance to check out the very best and latest that the industry has to offer.  To complement these brands, the PhilBike Expo offers unique, indoor interactive features that will get the adrenaline flowing.

1st CVT-X Digital Art Fair: A Day with Creativity & Artistry!!!

Photo taken by Natalie R. Tugade
One picture can change a life of a person instantly, if you can still remember that one photo taken at the refugee camp in Pakistan, an Afghanistan girl who has green eyes, that was on the cover of National Geographic taken by Steve Mccurry, it was the famous face of 1985, a girl named Sharbat Gula. The world was astounded with her beauty, a digital art and a majestic form of photography that captures the realism of human spirit.

Since then, art had been the expression of our soul. A way to create a world that goes beyond our imagination. A world that existed through, drawing, writing, photography and many forms. Looking into one's creations, you can sense a profound serenity and passion. 

That is why attending this CVT-X Traditional and Digital Art Fair excites my inner being, aside, that I'll be meeting new artists at the South, ill be capturing their love and passion for art. 

So, Here are the Finalist of the Art Work Contests:

The Art Items are for sale which includes: Hair Tattoos, Bible HighLighters, CongTv Shirts & Photos with Frames

For Individuals, who loves to color, Art Tables are situated outside the Kafe.

Art Items for Sale!!!

Here's the following Artists who shown and shared their explicit skills and creativity during CVT-X Traditional & Digital Art Fair in Buku-Buku Kafe ,District Mall Imus presented by The AI Project.

Meet Ms. Mara "Cee" Bautista, a Creative Lay Out Director for SunLife Canada, she started making lay-outs during her College Days. She talks about Art and using right fonts to capture viewers attention. 
Her latest achievement is the yellow bus prints of SunLife Canada in BGC!!! I, myself has a note pad copy of that yellow bus given previously by Sunlife during our Money Life Challenge Seminar in BGC,Taguig. Wonderful skills to be proud of.

Figure Drawing is an ancient form of art that had been used with our famous painter Michael Angelo, wherein he expresses his art through nudity that forms a lively anatomy of human being. His majestic form of art is well-known to the World. That is why I'm fascinated with Jose Chavez on how he can share his knowledge thru this workshop. It's so unique and he stated,"To appreciate the motion or fluidity of the drawing. Expression of the hand movement is so important."

I love mural art. Nowadays, we can see a lot of murals painted on the walls especially if you'll be going to BGC,Taguig. You will love to take pictures of it. That is why, I love to watched Jo Ocampo and Eli of Cavity Collective on how they deligently and patiently painted their craft. It takes a lot of perseverance and creativity to finished hours of painting. 

I was so fascinated with this artist named, Raven Columna, a Vector Illustrator, for the main reason he uses digital apps to create a beautiful craft using Adobe Illustrator. He created the design for CongTv T-shirts that is on sale at this art fair. He uses vector illustration, a technique that uses geometric shapes. He shown us how it was done. Although, he uses technical words, I've tried to understand his concept. But, according to my research,Vector Art has a crucial role in graphic and design, because it allows the image to be scaled or modified without compromising the picture itself.  Meaning, using Vector Art in promotional images and logos produces high quality resolution even it will resized, there's the consistency of the image. Cool! Additional inputs in terms of Art.

The Last part of the Program for CVT-X Digital Art Fair is the Live Demo for Calligraphy. As we all know, Calligraphy is an execution of lettering using a broad tip instrument. And one of the famous artists in Calligraphy named Paolo Tugano,  was invited to share his expertise in Calligraphy writing. I'ved listened very carefully with his tips and watched every strokes he made.  I know, someday, i'll learned  this one. I love all the Workshops. 

Live Watercolor Workshop by 
Ms. Cherry Monsanto occured during CVT-X Digital Art Fair, my fellow Blogger Friend named Cheryle Ramos joined the workshop.

Cong Villanueva aka: CongTV
This Youtube sensation named Cong Villanueva , has a magical way to bring laughters to  his/her viewers online. 
I was fascinated, why a lot of young people following him inside the fascade of Buku-Buku. As I watched, his Youtube Videos, I'm learned that being classic, frank  and true with himself, makes people follow him. His truly one of the voices of millenials.  

The cutee photographer of the South, Cyrill Araga

His outstanding artwork for photography inspired others. Using the Lens of his camera, he was able to capture the realism of socio-economic issues.  A Documentary like Images that has classic and traditional way but through his creativity and love for Art. He was able to express his passion in photography.

Congratulations to all the staff of The AI Project and Buku-Buku Kafe for a successful event. I'm very glad you were able to put up an event that showcase the talents and art skills of the South Artists here in Cavite. I was so amazed, how talented the people on the South are, I've learned a lot from them during their various art talk, live demo and workshop. People from all walks of life enjoyed the Art Fair. Big applause and thank you to all the artists who shared their knowledge and creativity to us. More power, to The AI Project, may you continue to bring Art Awareness to all places in the South and inspired others to unleashed their artistic side.  

Bear in mind, A World without Art is a World without Hopes and Dreams. Because, I believe each one of us has a hidden artistic side that needs to be evoked.
