The Tropical Shake

1:40 AM Nana Jover 1 Comments

Summer in the Philippines is very hot  and being a tropical country we are blessed with tropical fruits one of this is the pineapple and orange- both has an exceptional juiciness in it that makes it perfect for this tropical shake.


Ingredients: 

1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple juice
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh carrot juice 
4 ice cubes, coarsely crushed

Put the pineapple juice, orange juice and carrot juice in a blender or food processor. Add the crushed ice and process for 5 seconds. Make 1 glass.

So there you have it... enjoy =)

Happy Travel to: Sampaguita Garden (Home of the Precious Moments)

4:06 AM Nana Jover 1 Comments

The Sampaguita Garden is located in New Washington, Kalibo Philippines which is a 4 hours drive from Iloilo City. It is a 14 hectares land with a touch of Asian and a hint of European structures. I've heard a lot of amazing stories about it but i never actually had the chance to travel there, not until my recent job which required me to travel to Kalibo.

 Along with my co-workers we did a side trip to the magnificent mansion.. I am in awe with the amazing structures and collections of the Precious Moment Dolls.  It's like stepping inside the world of dolls. The Jojo Christmas Cottage itself is a huge replica of a doll house. A 3 storey doll house that is and each floor has it's own theme. But aside from the Jojo Cottage you can also check the Precious Moment Chapel,  Sam Butcher's Mansion (Sam is the creator of the place) swimming pool and a lot more.

Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.  
Meet Zucalo - Pomeranian she is only 2 months old

There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.

Nothing will come to you if you don’t go for it! It takes just a step to achieve your goals!  
The biggest challenge in life is being yourself… in a world trying to make you like everyone else..  
God, if i can't have what i want, let me want what i have

If there is no struggle, there is no progress.


life is like time.We can never get the moments gone, only regrets are left.
