Sedimentary Rock Formation Inside Sumaguing Cave, Sagada, Philippines
Our second day in Sagada started with a promise of beautiful day. Lovely skies hugged the mountain, giving us hope that rain won't get in our way. Rain was not welcome for us on that day because caving would be cancelled due to the flooding inside the cave that the rain will cause.

We left Manila for Sagada last December 27 at about 9:30 pm. We had several stops along the way but our first major stop was Banaue Rice Terraces at about 8:00 am of December 28. About 11:00 am, we reached Sagada.
Daniela and Who?, Indian Wells, CA
One of the events in Southern California that I always would not want to miss going to is the tennis event in Indian Wells, CA. I am a big tennis fan, I may not watch a lot of TV, but somehow, when it is tennis out there, I can take some time sitting in front of TV. And whenever there is a tournament here in Southern California, as long as I have free time, I do come to watch.

The Banaue Rice Terraces
Back several decades ago, when I was much younger, my uncle would always test me what are the 7 wonders of the world. After reciting correctly the 7 ancient wonders, my uncle would surprise me, "and what is the 8th wonder?" To his satisfaction, I would proudly say, "The Banaue Rice Terraces of the Philippines!"

One of the top casinos found in Europe is located on the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal’s Casino Lisboa is one of the top destinations when visiting the capital city. Not only does the casino feature an opulent décor but has numerous opportunities to enjoy your favourite casino games. For instance, there are over 1000 gaming machines found in the casino. Table games can also be found here numbering almost 30. Another top European casino can also be found on the Iberian Peninsula but this time in Spain. The Casino Castell De Peralada is located within a castle from the Medieval Period dating back to the 15th century. Poker is one of the more popular games at this casino. However, visitors can also expect to find other table games as well as the ever popular slot machines.
When visiting these casinos, travelers may choose to play the slot machines. These machines come in many different themes. They also may offer additional bonus games which can further augment their winnings. Free spin bonuses are another way to see your winnings grow. Some slot machines also have special features that for instance permit one particular reel to be respun with an additional bet. This is done in the hopes of making a match with symbols on the other reels. Online slots come in a variety of denominations which helps them to easily fit within anyone’s budget. Given all of these factors, it is easy to see why they are so popular.

Presently at the airport waiting for my boarding for the very long trip back home. Confusing, isn't it? That I am soon leaving home to come back home.
Picture below is from my cell phone from one of my hikes with my family here in my home sweet Philippines, at Mambukal Mountain Resort, Negros Occidental.

Time is a precious possession. Gifted with ample time I would love to be on a Galapagos Cruise Ship watching the sunset, looking at the tranquil waters, the marvelous sky, listening to my hubby's sweet nothings embracing me from behind smiling with all the happiness in the world thinking of what we both love nature and wildlife; calling out to turtles and seals and supporting the Galapagos Island conservation like what M/V Galapagos Explorer II offering Galapagos cruises with passenger safety as their main priority does.
