Happy Holidays to all!

Posted: December 24, 2011 in Blog, Events


Happy Holidays to all!

It’s been years since I last decorated the house for the holiday season… and since this year was not a good year for me, I was not really into the Christmas spirit and just wanted to take a long vacation and rest.

With the egging of carol, we decided to try to decorate a little bit, went around to see what would be nice but did not see any, until we decided to get a Christmas tree for the house and put some gifts underneath it, then other gifts came and more gifts plus gifts from other persons for the people of devastated areas which we would be bringing along our trip to CDO.

With this we thank you all for the gifts, the graces, the warmth, the love, and the blessings you have given us so we could share them to others!

From all of us:

Joey Rico
Carol Maralit
Mary Rico
John Salvador
Ica Salvador
Kyle Rico
Mikael Rico
…with little green men

We thank you all and have a wonderful holiday season…

God Bless you All

Itlog, which in the English language means “EGG”,

Eggs laid by females of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, have been eaten by mankind for millennia. Bird and reptile eggs consist of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk), contained within various thin membranes.

Egg yolks and whole eggs store a lot of protein and choline. For this reason, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) categorizes eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid

Popular choices for egg consumption are chicken, duck, roe, and caviar. The egg most often humanly consumed by far is the produce of the chicken.

In tagalog the word itlog may be used in any term, like in school – anong grade ang nakuha mo… ITLOG!!! Or in sports – sya ay nag itlog sa shaded area (3 second violation in basketball), but I will use it as and acronym for my travel which would be I Travel Log or in short “ITLog”. I Travel Log, would be a documentation of the travels I (we) have made and with some stories and real facts that would accompany my photos.

And my first ITLog would be our travel to the place called “GANDUYAN”, or which is now known as “SAGADA”


here is the link of our SAGADA trip:
