Chasing Sunflowers (A Trip to Kawa Kawa National Park)

Our trip to Kawa Kawa National Park is totally unplanned. We went to Bicol for a different intention. My husband said that since we are already there, let’s take advantage of the opportunity. From Oas, Albay, we rode a jeepney and just paid the minimum fare. It was around 7 to 10 mins travel time. From our drop off point, there are two options to go to the main park — ride a tricycle or walk. We chose to walk since it is not that far, and it served as a warm up for us.

The Kawa-Kawa Hill is a 236 meter land form located in California Village, Brgy. Tuburan, Ligao City. Its name is derived from its curious shape resembling a ‘kawa’ or cauldron. From afar, Kawa-Kawa may seem as ordinary as any other hill, but from its summit, one can see its unique feature in its full glory – an amphitheater-like six-hectare crater. Because of this peculiar characteristic, it is also called ‘the hill without a hilltop’. (http://wowlegazpi.com/kawa-kawa-hill-in-ligao-city/)

The hill is famous for religious goers, specially during the Lenten season. It houses life-size replicas of the Stations of the Cross. It is like a penance because the stations are situated distantly from one another. Good thing there is a cemented trail so it is easier to move up the hill.

At the “null” portion of the “cauldron”, there sits a marvelous cultivation of different ornamental plants. But what’s distinct is the flourishing sunflowers. My eyes marveled at the almost golden petals clustered at the center of the park. This, I think, is my favorite part. This is also symbolizes the city having a Sunflower Festival annually.

On the other side of the park, is a capacious field, which is suitable for camping, picnics, and outdoor games. We also fed the deers near the campsite.

Once more, we walked up and continue our journey to the Stations of the Cross. Up in the hill, we witnessed the magnificent view of Mt. Mayon. I was mesmerized by the perfect cone shape of the volcano. Aside from the volcano, the view of Mt. Masaraga can never be left unnoticed.

MY TIPS
1. Choose a comfortable shoes, and wear light and decent clothing.
2. Bring a hanky or facial tissue. I bet you’ll sweat a lot.
3. Never pick flowers.
4. Bring umbrella, or wear hat or cap.
5. It is best to visit in the morning so the sunflowers are in full bloom.
6. There are stalls located inside the park for your convenience. But you can still bring food for picnics. There are also picnic tables and viewing decks.
7. Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture the magnificent views and sceneries.
8. Enjoy! 🙂

A Reminder

A bracelet is an article of jewelry that is worn around the wrist. I really fancy wearing bracelets ever since I was still a kid. I have worn all sorts and varieties like gold, silver, beads and strings, pearls, etc. Being fond of this, I decided to buy myself a simple gift for my birthday.

The bracelet that I bought has different charms, that I think speaks of who I am.

Star. The star represents the goals that I have set upon. This should remind me to be on track.

Ace. I always aim to be excellent on what I do. This will set the mood for me to attain my “star”.

Eiffel Tower. The form of leisure that I really fancy is to travel. My dream escapade to visit Paris.

Ring. Ring symbolizes commitment to my loved ones. Commitment is a big thing for me. So, whenever I say that I’m committed, I really pour my heart out.

Wearing my favorite kind of jewelry would remind of the things that motivates and moves me.

A Birthday Gift

Most of the special occasions, my husband will really make an effort to find those lovely gifts. On my upcoming birthday, he gave an advance gift which is a set of earrings and necklace. While I was scheming through my boxes of accessories, I noticed that most of my necklaces and earrings came from him.

I wonder why my husband is so fond of giving me jewelries. Recently, I read an article about interpreting why men give jewelry as gift.

Here’s the link of the article that answered my question.

My son is about to turn 3 years of age, and we have no plans yet on where to celebrate his birthday. My husband and I were thinking that instead of giving him the usual birthday party, we will celebrate in a place where kids like his age would really enjoy. After consulting my concern with my favorite friend, Google, we found this child haven in the metro. Active Fun is located at the 28th Street in Bonifacio Global City. The place has a huge play area with a giant slide. It is also well maintained and secure. Aside from the play area, it also has a cafeteria while waiting for the kids. My son really enjoyed at the play area. There are a lot of kids that he met.

Really a good place to recommend for kids! 
