The Path of Adventure

All-Girl Jump

The first 5 photos taken on December 1, 2010, finally see the light of day in my blog. There are so many details vivid to me. I knew LEAD Movement was hosting the Kite Chicks with kite and wind surfing stars Susie Mai and Nenette Graf. Things went so fast, I was able to get little info from Nenette, and then it was also the same day I was asked to leap from independent mongering into some wicked world, only to leave the first chance I got.

Not remembering why I was in the jump photo, the chick nearest me, who I even held hands with is the same person I would be hosting in Adams 4 years later. The lone guy with the kite was the telltale sign. I browse through my moth-eaten files and what an amazing discovery. We finally have names.

Laoag City turns 50 in 2015

Laoag Tricycle

By virtue of a plebiscite, Laoag became a city on June 19, 1965. Did you know? Eulalio F. Siazon, the gentleman from La Paz (at heart), was the first mayor of the City of Laoag. He was the longest serving mayor (16 years) and his name is etched in local history as the leader who paved all the streets around the poblacion, widened the Gilbert Bridge (now the Marcos Bridge), built the old Laoag Supermarket, etc.

Rizal St., Laoag

Laoag is unique in many different ways. Firstly, there are more banks around than fastfood restaurants and malls, and there’s not one single movie theater. What else? We have 4-seater calesas and did you notice our tricycles have been lowered to suit the streets? It’s a good place to stroll around. Life has been basically the same for residents, which is good.

I love home.
