Do not Read If You’re Alone this Christmas… or You Might Want to Know How to Avoid it.

Hi to all my dear readers and followers in the blog and social world. December, the last month of the calendar and the most significant of all …. It’s the most wonderful time of the year… heard from the piped-in music playing all the surrounding establishment and you can’t help but think about the last one you had… It may be sad or worth not reminiscing for some. Observer’s say that most of the union are formed or dramatized through mutual acceptance of one’s love provocation to enter into a sort of serious level of relationship during the last month of the year. Hey, I thought this is about Christmas ? How come were rearing towards courtship, relationship and whatever you may want to call it but with a single denominator which is Love.

What makes the month so special to everyone has been answered a thousand years ago and it’s a cyclical moment that almost all the Christians are looking about. The cold weather and the very essence of it is what it makes so special, including food. The true meaning of giving has somehow creating magical things tis the season’ in everyone’s heart that they seemed to forget the bad old days even for a while and embrace the true meaning of the season… even for a while with emphasis.

Going back to the goal, it’s very different nowadays as compared to good old days. Maybe its the artificial phenomena involving technology that made things work fast and faster for others. Does it the love within that makes the young generation melt their heart faster than it used to be with the aid of those gadgets? Was it because they think and process things faster that makes them jump into conclusion and left it where they wanted once bland moment creeps in or expectation becomes unreliable? Wish upon a star you all whisper as it’s all about trust and confidence along the way that may be is at stake and not the promises you keep to yourself and half-handed you put in some effort to satisfy your end, and in the end you end up yearning for more …. more than you are expecting making the complications rougher than ever.

So if you wanna make your season worth remembering come the next one, make it one in the real of honesty, purity and just. keeping it simple is all but the only way to avoid getting empty handed come greeting time on the eve of the 25th of month and end up solo till the next most wonderful time of the year.

Hey… where just starting , next read will be the do’s and dont’s of the above. Thank you for reading and please don’t forget to share because it’s free to share…

And so this is Christmas.. look what have you done. J. Lennon – Paquito

 

Paquito Quote for the Day 44

Promote , promote and promote … this is the trend that keeps people spend the third quarter of their daily lives. There’s always a competition in anything we think about. From food choices to trendy clothes were always having the mind boggling issues of what, what else and whatever. It’s a never ending cycle… I wonder how my dear readers will react to this.. to comment or not.. ready or not , here it is . Our time is given to us and it’s our own decision how to go about it, big time!

That Generation X -perience!

So it’s trending around the web, in all portals of the social media ! The generation X whom they’ve branded with the Tito’s and Tita’s or Uncle and Auntie in universal language. A certain 40’ish guy initiated the down memory lane petmalu and lodi post on his Facebook account and voila! a million followers in a less than 15 minutes.  Though we’re not looking at it as a gimmick but pure sincere gesture to put up those nostalgic paper prints photos showing the simple, happier and personified experience of those born between the years of the 70’s , 80’s and the 90’s…. game console such as the Atari brings back the two sides of memories… for those who had such gadget it sends a good recall but for those who haven’t laid a hand on it only brings back the sad memories of how the life used to be…

 

Ready or not, things will be like this for the next generation to come as long as the science continue to evolve and the genius continue to grow… rest assured that all will stay for us to share and laugh with it even for a little while….

The roads then resembled like a plot of land with few cars passing thru it. , think about it…- Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 43

Taking up something without any intention to let anyone knew it, is a big NO, especially if you are someone being looked upon as a role model of a law abiding citizen not only of your mother country but as to the whole world as well being recognized and affiliated with one of the favorite sports of the world.  The question lies between why and why  alone. Was it the urge of nature ? Was it flowing unto their genes ? Was it because their dumb reasoning can never be really considered as acceptable that they forgot to  process the cons of their act.

Respect the norms and the norms will respect you . – Paquito

How to get to Minor Basilica of Our Lady Of Rosary of Manaoag

Good day my warmest reading public, I’ve noticed that there are plenty of views looking for the right direction or I think the most accurate way to get to the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Rosary of Manaoag which is located at Milo Street, Manaoag, Pangasinan Philippines. The following are the frame by frame instructions I’m offering to all of you who are first timer to go there and unaware or misinformed of how to really traverse the best possible route available with use of national highways such as North Luzon Expressway or NLEX then Subic-Tarlac Expressway or SCTEX and finally the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway or TPLEX which I think have reached the La Union province going up until the summer capital of the north, the Baguio City.  You can always check the Google Earth for an accurate and interactive way of learning how to get there without any room for error. Enjoy your trip in a most safest way.

mindanao ave point of origin

Point of origin for this trip shall start from the Mindanao Avenue extension, coming from Trinoma or North Avenue in Quezon City this is the highway or major on your right facing west towards Quiapo. Traverse the subway and in a couple of minutes you’ll be on the edge of the highway which is very obvious with the presence of clear signboards pointing to NLEX.. Head west or LEFT-TURN to that Mindanao Ave.-Smart Connect road to take the first Toll plaza.

Turn Right towards NLEX

TURN – RIGHT to North Luzon Expressway , if head straight you’ll miss the entry and you need to make a u-turn ahead and turn Right, now using the Cloverleaf .

Exit at SCTEX-Clark

After travelling for more than a distance of 75 kilometers, you are now ready to enter the very First EXIT from the NLEX by going rightmost lane and follow the rounding interchange road to Toll way of SCTEX, Clark Airport.

KEEP LEFT towards NLEX-SCTEX

Head straight and KEEP LEFT to continue towards direction of SCTEX and TPLEX expressways. This time the speed limit is well monitored by several mobile highway patrols, CCTV’s, and radar system which are strategically in place across the expressway. You’ll notice of some apprehension once you reach the next Toll plaza.

KEEP RIGHT follow signs for Concepcion- Hacienda Luisita-Tarlac-Baguio TPLEX

It wont be too long that you gotta keep right to traverse the expressway bearing the signboard read as Clark North, Hacienda Luisita, Tarlac, and Baguio City, TPLEX . This will lead you to interconnect with the last expressway prior to exit to the town in reaching the basilica.

CONTINUE to Tarlac-Pangasinan-LaUnion Expressway

Head straight towards the Tarlac – Pangasinan – La Union Expressway, this time you have an option where to exit as there are two exit points that were both manageable and convenient for your own decision. Urdaneta Toll Plaza exit or the Binalonan Toll Plaza. If you have plans to take breakfast or lunch at the Urdaneta town you have to take that exit but if not, then go ahead to the last and near the destination exit which is the Binalonan exit.

EXIT to BINALONAN Toll Plaza

After a more or less 182 kilometers of travelling or an hour and a half travel time, you are now on the last leg of the route. From the exit toll plaza, the basilica is more or less 9 kilometers away and you can be there with the traffic included at more or less in half an hour.

Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag

 Above is the Google Earth captured image showing its relation to road coming from the exits. The listed distance was 191 kilometers with a travel time of 2 hours and 23 minutes passing thru the NLEX, SCTEX and TPLEX. I’m encouraging you to leave early in the morning and leave the place after lunch if you’re allergic to traffic… take note that there is no such thing as peak season in trekking the road or the expressway since you’ll be sharing it with those traveler’s going to their respective provinces such as Tarlac, Dagupan, Nueva Eicija and even Baguio City.

Pangasinan City is rich in history when it comes to food and delicacies… locals will offer you “papaitan” and “tupig” , both are worth a try ! But before anything else, a solemn prayer and silent wishes is what you were there for and there’s no better way to spend it by lighting a candle in one of the sections of the holy basilica.

Planning your trip ahead is one of the best thing to do if it requires you to drive to less than 6 hours back and forth. Keep with you enough drinking water as you dont want to get upset stomach after trying those local foods which are all alien to your digestion system.

I hope these eight frame instructional guide will make your trip handy and serve more than what you are looking for, have a safe trip ahead and God Bless Everyone!

PRAY FOR LAS VEGAS

Prayers for the innocent souls lost in one of the most tragic and horrifying shooting incident in the modern day history of the United States of America. This senseless act must stop not only in America but in every corners of the world.

Security lapses and bribery played part in this bastard act with ten firearms being able to breezed through “strict security blanket” – Paquito

 

Paquito Answer for the Day 38

This one’s hot, after months of speculation and drama … the New York Knicks have agreed to trade NBA All Star and Olympian Basketball star Carmelo Anthony to the Western Conference Division title contender and home to Mr. Triple-Double and reigning league MVP Russel Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunders in exchange for several key players led by center Enes Kanter and Victor Oladipo. Shall we consider them with their own Big 3? Paul George was on board and NBA fans are too excited to see how this three will fare which was somehow came as an unexpected move given the many hindrances in landing Melo to a team like the Thunder.

Will they live up to the expectations ? Does it pose any threat to the title holder the Golden State Warriors ? That needs to be seen come opening of the NBA Games a month from now. Your thoughts please…

Paquito Quote for the Day 41

You can never change people’s thought in anyway you wanted and what they believe in when it comes to your own predicament. An analyst branded Kevin Durant as the P.O.A.T, or what he said was the Pettiest Of All Time, though another analyst or pod-caster defended the acts and the reason behind those petty things at least for the critique as to many why’s that KD had resorted to such Twitter blast directed toward the former organization where he grew up and molded to what he is right now.

Can anybody blame him for what he’d done? I myself can’t but to learn from those actions committed by one of the best player to come to the NBA.

Look, listen and learn … that’s the best part of it when a star is glowing beyond capacity. – Paquito
