Siwawer Vintar 4×4 Challenge on its 10th Year


766 photos in a day! I’m more exhausted than any of the off-road competitors. Posting some photos before I finish the hard action for the next post. I hope you are enjoying the last days of 2013, everyone!

Meet the man to beat… Boyet Leano, the non off-roader who happens to be the godfather of 4×4 races in the entire Ilocandia, years before off-road competitions became mainstream in Ilocos Norte.

This year, riders from Pampanga joined the Vintar races.

Holiday Gift Guide

Being the busy parents that we are, we don’t have ample time to scour the shops for gifts that our teenage anak or inaanak will love. Dear mommy and daddy/ninong and ninang, a well thought of gift is cuter than cash. I curated five items from Punchdrunk Panda, my go-to online store for whimsical  Filipino-designed stuff (not limited for teens). Shipping is quick and efficient.
