Viewing the Windmills at Pililla, Rizal

When we visited the artist Leo Meneses for an interview, he promised to take us to the windmills afterwards. So we took off right after lunch, at 2PM to be exact, because we wanted to get back to Manila early and we were excited to see the windmills.

Windmills in the distance got us even more excited.

I have been to the windmills in Bangui, Ilocos Norte before and I had always wanted to go back. I didn't know there was a wind farm much nearer Manila so this was a welcome surprise. Fair warning: photo blog to follow.

Leo Meneses: Lover of Nature, Art and Life

There are many chances of meeting an actor or singer when you live in the city near the biggest media networks. There are lesser chances of meeting a painter or a musician as you go about your daily commute to work. I have always admired people in the fine arts and getting the chance to meet one was a chance I could not pass over.

Mr. Leo Meneses was the artist we were going to meet with in his hometown of Pililla, Rizal. I've always wanted to have a conversation with an artist and learn about what inspired them to pursue their creative side, why they do what they do and many other questions that only frustrated artists like me can relate to.

Vegetarian Find: Green Earth Health Food at Lucban, Quezon

One dilemma that I always have when travelling is whether I will find a place that offers vegetarian/vegan food options. It has always been difficult to do so in most of the destinations I have been to but on our trip to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Laguna, there was one such place that allowed me to eat the healthy food I was craving.

I was feeling rather achy, cold and weak that morning but seeing the words Green Earth on a sign among the food stalls almost made me jump for joy! I was excited to see what foodie treats they offered.

Morning Climb at Kamay ni Hesus Shrine, Lucban, Quezon

We spent Valentine's Day admiring the awesomeness of Hulugan Falls, the Caliraya sunset and the scenic spots along the way. The next day, we carried our aching limbs to Lucban, Quezon to visit the Kamay ni Hesus Shrine.

At first, my friend Sarah and I didn't want to climb anymore because we felt too weak and achy to climb after our adventure at the falls. Our friends were eager to go though, so we let them go ahead while we looked around to soak in the cool air and the scenery.
