Sea Of Clouds

So it was last December that we had experienced Buda, it was our Team Christmas Party. It was my first experience to have a team building outside the city. It was amazing!

The next morning, we went to the sea of clouds, if you don’t have a car to get there, you might like to ride a motorcycle, in which we did. It was a long ride, the road is bumpy too. It hurts in the butt, but it’s all worth it when we arrived at the place, it is just so perfect!

 

Does it look like a painting? 

The air is so fresh that you may just want to stay forever.

 

Everyone enjoyed the view a lot

The Face Of Darkness

We were in my doctor’s office that time when one of my workmates broke us the news that the NCCC Mall was on fire. After clinic, when I and Mj passed by, we only saw a little smoke but we heard something fell already from the 3rd floor. We were already in another mall when I realized that my niece Moreen is working in SSI, their floor is just on top of that mall. The fire started at 9:30 in the morning and Moreen usually logs out at 11:00 in the morning. I hurriedly bought a credit for my phone; I slowly dial my sister’s number, Moreen’s Mom and asked her how’s Moreen. She then said that my niece is in the bedroom and was sleeping; I breathe right away and told her about the mall. She called her daughter right away and later she replied her workmates that she is safe and fine. Later, we heard that there were 37 agents who were trapped, the next day they were already 38.

All of them died in that tragedy, no one was able to escape from the fire of death. I can’t help but felt aggravated, eventhough I don’t know anyone there but knowing that we were on the same field, I also felt cheated. I could not contain my frustration when I learned that it was already hopeless to rescue them until now I still have questions, what, why and how? Most of them are so young, full of dreams; some are still in college, juggling themselves for work and school. I could not imagine their parents depression, seeing the building burned down.

 

 

Until now whenever I passed by this area, the face of darkness, despair and sorrow seemed like a doom covering the whole area. This building is just so near to where I am currently working. There are times that I accidentally utter the name of the mall whenever the Jeepney driver asked where will I go that my daughter keeps on poking my shoulder, reminding me that the mall is gone, my favorite mall is vanished together with those agents who were working at that time and was so excited to log out because it’s almost Christmas. I am moving on but I know those agents could not, their parents could not, their family could not. Everyone will just look at this building, reminiscing the memories, their tambay spot in the foodcourt, the wide grocery, the varieties of clothes and bags and all that stuff. But I know some of us will show hatred and deranged to this mall. I could not blame them.

My condolence to the family of the victim. You are always in my prayer that whoever is responsible to the fire should answer this. But if in case, if the one who did this can run away, we may always have injustices in this world but to HIM we are fair, I know somehow that person will still pay.

On the other hand, to this mall that I always run to whenever I need some things for my kids, when I don’t have frozen foods to cook at home, when I feel like roaming around, eating at any fast food store. I will miss you big time NCCC Mall!

The Moon In The Eclipse

I wanted to capture the eclipse that happens just this month but sad to say that it was not visible here in the Philippines. So I thought I could not share anything here, I could not also grab some pictures in FB without asking permission and I am too shy. Good thing though that a friend from Texas shared me the picture that he took on that night and it was just so perfect. I asked him if I could post it in my blog and he said yes. Thanks Bro!

Climate in Roswell

Since I was hooked up with Roswell series recently, I got also interested with how Roswell looks like, their weather or what are the tourist spots that everyone might get interested. Roswell is located southeastern New Mexico. Roswell has a total area of 29.9 square miles, the 29.8 square miles is land and the rest is covered by water.

The Roswell location is  in high plains that means to say since they are in high plains snowfall is a common occurrence, even though snowfall is a common sight, Roswell is usually sunny. Spring is usually warm but can still be cold in some occasion. Summers are hot as expected since they are in high plains. The temperature would always go with 100 F, which is not good. Monsoon usually occurs during summer and can possibly bring relentless downpours. Roswell also experienced thunderstorms and hail and even tornadoes. Roswell would always be thankful if they have rains, not the thunderstorm or hail though. It gives a cooling relief from dreadful heat of the desert. If you are looking for snow, you might want to visit during October and November as there is a big chance for snowfall.
