Hey, today is my birthday and my age is turnin’ into a quarter of a century which means i’m getting 1 more age closer to death haha (pun intended). To all the greetings so far, thank u so much. My wish would’ve been world peace but since i’m a selfish bastard i’ll gonna wish for a chevrolet.
Hey guys, I’ll gonna write some quick post about this year’s celebration of Capiztahan, an annual provincial festival in Capiz, Philippines. This year, it’s the 116th founding anniversary of the province and there’s no other way to celebrate it than showcase the native products, astoundingly delicious cuisines (seafoods cough cough), rich historical and cultural heritage, blasting street fiesta, and the first every Capiz’ International Triathlon Competition (Capiz Triaksyon). The latter is a new project of the provincial government to promote the Province of Capiz as a cultural and sports hub in the heart of the Philippines.
On my end, I seriously find Capiztahan 2017 an amazing experience and somehow rigidly tiring. Of course, I am working on a hotel in province and we have some VIP guests that stayed with us. Well, I spent 3 weeks on the graveyard shift and that was seriously terrible though I’d rather be assigned on that schedule coz sometimes, I just can’t control my antisocial nature and I might freak out dealing with so many human beings. On a separate account, I got some chances to tour around the city during those eventful days. In fact, I was able to survived going through center of the crowd together with a friend of mine. I wasn’t expecting I’ll survived that as way back in December 2016, during the Sinadya’s celebration I feel nauseous whenever I have to passed through the crowd. I guess this is a job well done on my part.

Importantly, Capiztahan 2017 was filled with seafood galore especially crabs, prawns, squids, fishes, seashells (Scallops, etc.) In addition, the parades of lights along the streets and the traditional ‘sadsad sa kalsada‘ (street parades) simply reflects the rich cultural background of the province. On ‘sadsad’, every municipalities of the province of Capiz displayed their versatility and creativity on delivering fantastic themed-performance. A pageant was also held in the first night of the celebration on which pretty girls from all over the province compete to obtain the title of Mutya sang Halaran sa Capiztahan. Aside from these, Capiztahan 2017 had been filled with many amazing activities and simply shows the promising future that awaits the province of Capiz if such events continues to attract both local and international tourists.

Finally, the grand fiesta ended with a big bang through the Fireworks competition that took place during the last night of the Capiztahan 2017.

It’s 2 am in the morning and here I am again, staring the blank page of my blog while YouTube is on standby but I can’t even find a single damn thing to listen at. I logged in on my Tumblr account and gotten tired watching on some NSFW stuffs that doesn’t supposed to reflect my pathetic interests. This could only means that I’m bored as hell and this sheer boredom simply resonates all the anxieties that I had recently. And speaking of anxiety, aside from the Weekly Anime Chart from Anime Trending on which I am worried what would be the position of my favorite anime Natsume Yuujinchou Roku, I’d been anxious as hell about the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2017. To be honest, I can’t imagine a single song not passing to the finals as this could be the strongest batch of entries that I had ever witnessed and heard. There’s just too much of astounding entries and even in my own list, my favorites simply wouldn’t fit in.

Summer is just around the corner and it sure feel nice to get ready for the upcoming summer heat. Everybody must’ve written their list of places to go for a vacation or staycation this summer. An amazing splash and dip in the beach water must have been the number 1 activity for many people out there. It is inevitable, in fact it was always fun to have that refreshing dip in the beach especially if you’re with your family or group of friends. However, we could actually have an astounding summer getaway far from the beach, a relaxing place filled with lush surroundings could be the best alternative, isn’t it? In that case, an enchanting escapade in the forest or go mountain climbing could be the best thing to do. On the other side, a simply retreat in together with your friends or family members in a humble eco-friendly resort will do to replenish your energy in the imminent summer heat.
Talking about a verdantly mesmerizing surroundings and refreshing getaway, guess like I know a specific place for that.

It’s the best place to spend the night in the province with its fascinating facilities, friendly and accommodating staffs, scrumptious cuisines and eco-friendly atmosphere, one could truly feel nature-loving vacation.

Nathan Trent will represent Austria at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with the song Running On Air.
Aside from this song, my other favorite entries are from United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Spain. Well, that was quite surprising because it’s all from the Big 5. Anyway, I am really looking forward for the Eurovision 2017 which will starts on May 9 with its first semi-final and end on May 13 with its final’s night. So, I really wish that Nathan Trent and Running On Air will do well in the competition and I heard that he’s actually good in live performance, with that being said I wish him a big good luck. It’s not that far to bring back the competition on Austria, anyway last year’s entry from Zoe was really adorable and heartwarming.
