It is everyone’s’ dream to go at least once a week to the parks, picnic and spend quality time with their love ones under the sun or al fresco. The sound of kids shrieking, shouting and running every corners of the parks cognitively brings back our inner thoughts of our childhood memories. You were a kid before and it’s that kind of feeling that we somehow feel we’ve come along way and can’t help but smile of those mischievous things you’ve done. Nothing is worth remembering but our loved ones who’ve passed away. No need to wait for that feast of the souls.

Peaceful places creatively brings back old days, check out those pocket parks even inside the enclaves of your home ground. Pick up that small books of know how and continue learning. Isn’t it beautiful looking at those greeneries while looking back and putting up a smile or two with those candid pictures you got at those grandfather of all Facebook which is the hard copies of scrapbooks. ?

Vacation and Revisitation of Roots – My 18 TDL

It’s been so long my dear readers and fellow bloggers, too many things had transpired and i wonder where exactly Starman and the red Tesla sports car is located right now in the universe after that successful launch led by the visionary billionaire Elon Musk and mind you in just a handful of million dollars way below the staggering amount any NASA launched had in the past. Are we gonna or our future generation gonna experience inter-star or inter-planetary visitation? Will man achieve the un-achievable feat of colonizing planet and start procreation away from the comfort of the Earth? Too good to be true but there is a very clear light looming along the horizon.

Let me continue the promises as am not used to breaking promises, here is another topic that’ll aptly shrink into you which is the act of going back to places where we do start to feel the comfort of our home, our roots and ourselves.

You’ were young when you first left your birthplace, too small to recollect what was used to be your kindergarten school, the old smell of town and seas .. the place where you spent most of your younger years are a place worth revisiting to reminisce those memories. It’s always the never ending excitement that send shivers just with the thought of it. Aren’t you feeling the same?

The needed vacation is an activity you must include in your bucket list for the year 2018, explore some new and those old places will rejuvenate your mind and satisfy the heart. Make it a long stay or a short affair but full of unexpected fun.

Man seemed to know where he does truly belongs… and that is to the stars of his own universe. – Paquito

Paquito Christmas Quote for the Year 2017

Merry Christmas Everyone !

Christmas is a celebration for the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ. It signifies peace and love. But the true meaning of it becomes gradually less to those people who become a victim of their selfish desire and those suffering from disaster. – Anonymous

Isn’t it giving you chills on why you suddenly turning into a very calm, not in a hurry, soft spoken, cool person right now? There’s a wonder behind that not only who’s reading this blog right now has that feeling but everybody else around the planet and even those manning the international space station or the ISS orbiting the globe and giving us the clearer picture of what was happening to our Mother Earth. Our brain must’ve been preprogrammed or has its default mode with respect to occasions and events like this one, the birth of Jesus. We were all made with our own manuals or written script on how we gonna live our life with self respect and to the others. We have our own destiny so to speak , a path that we must take, a direction we are required to follow after weighing the beauty of process and obstacles it has along the way. But why there are those whose lives were full of hardship and of difficulties that they alone never asks for? Why there are sufferings?

And why there is inequality amongst us… our mind and soul reacted the way it is expected and the way it is acceptable to ones power, weaknesses and even subtleness. The truth about peace is, its entire meaning alone is too difficult to swallow for those people who’ve been born out of war, famine, disaster and even extremism for what their senses acquired the very first day they came out of this world became the mold of the character and the bits and pieces of cranial facts they’ll never forget even until their death. The peace everybody professes cannot be found in treaties, written in stones or etched in granite. It is a process that no special studies could define even in the halls of top universities, congregation or law. That it was diluted in every blood of a warrior and the head of a abysmal leader whose only mission is to put all the strength of a potent result of war, famine and other inhumane norm that only them could endure to enjoy and not the common people whose population is far greater than the fraction of recidivist yet never thought to pull any harm nor wounds toward their countrymen. Far from sadness yet too far from joy. And with the birth of a child names Jesus, our hearts, mind and souls were continuously touch by his mere birth and graciousness. As it all reminds us to be just, polite, obedient and teaches us to love one another without en avarice. For how long, a never ending question nobody could provide answers or even a hint. How about you, do you know when this will end? Speak up and let it be known among the world. You might have the not the best but the most adaptable, reliable and doable approach for it. Now is your time to speak up, to use the social media to spread the good word, the good deeds, the equality everybody wishing for… and i hope the rest will be, as they keep on saying … is history.

Like the child who sang with pure joy and enthusiastic way, she was am sure have touched the heart of any stranger like us whose search and mission to find peace to pause and listen to the wonders and magic of her soulful rendition of the song, indeed it was holy and I hope you find the same. Gloria in Excelsis Deo ! We are all wired to expressed our respect to the Holy one and nothing can change it , even them who can’t accept the fact of the wonders of their good existence.

Feliz Navidad, Froehliche Weihnachten,Joyeux Noël,  Maligayang Pasko, Buon Natale, Feliz Natal, Sretan Bozic, Zalig Kerstfeest,  Merii Kurisumasu, Mele Kalikimaka – 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!

“Lord,” said Thomas, “we do not know where You are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, ” I am the way and the truth and the life. no once comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

A short or long trip requires the same preparation. – Paquito
