So Busy

No time for blogging but I am regularly logging to my Facebook account because I enjoy the Fashion War games! Now I am able to write a little here because I'm done reporting in all of my graduate school classes. But I still have a lot of things to do. Really I can't wait for summer vacation..

Trip to Batangas: Reminiscing past travels

Going to Batangas City is now convenient because of the Star Tollway. Before it would take you at least 2 hours to go to Batangas but with the Star Tollway, we could be there in 90 minutes.

But that is not the reason for posting in this blog. I started to miss my family meaning my mother, father and my siblings. Irwin's family is in the South and mine is in the North. We pass the NLEX everytime we go to our province. I look forward to the travel especially eating at Jollibee Luisita in Tarlac.
It has no meaning to me before but now these things and memories are important.

We went there to say goodbye to a cousin who is going to the States because of her petition and will not be back in ten years. Kiara will be very old by then. I am even older. Ate Jonelle is Irwin's cousin and will not be back for a long time. She is a kind and carefree cousin, I bet she wont last in the States for long so we predict that we will see her sooner.

Going to the South is more of an obligation to fulfill but if I have a choice I would always rather go North with my family.

Be on TV as the Next NIDO Star

All you need to do is go to this siteNIDO register and upload your own MTV of Nido. You also need to include a picture of NIDO, be sure it can be seen at the background.

Can I join in this contest even if Kiara is less than a year old and will not drink NIDO? Well, maybe, if I win I will just give it to Kiara's cousin who are Nido drinkers.

Golfing in Germany

When you hear the word golf, Tiger Woods would be one of the first associated words that comes to your mind. Tiger Woods inspires a lot of people, especially kids who want to take golf as their hobby or as their chosen sports.

I was thinking right now if my little baby will also be interested in golf if we are not golf players. I played once in a driving range when one of my friends introduced me to the game, turned out I am a better player than her according to the "pulot" girl.
That was the last time I touched a golf club.

Jose Rizal, if he is still alive today, will he be playing golf while in Germany?
I wonder..
There is this online German portal Golfkurs.com that offers golf courses to people of all ages including children. In Germany, not everybody can play golf, you need special permission and a test to be able to play in a golf course and it is called Platzreife. You need to undergo training and a test to be able to play golf at a fee. Here they will teach you the basics of golf, the rules and regulations, the terms used in golf and after that you will be given an exam to qualify. If you pass the test you can now enjoy the game in private golf courses and if you do not have it you are limited to playing only in public areas. If you want to have a career in golf and you are in Germany better have yourself tested first.

When playing golf you need to buy equipments and gears like a golf club, a golf shoes, a golf ball, golf organizer, etc. If you are in training you may need some practice nets or driving mats. This site in golfkurs
Golfurlaub offers some links to popular golf stores in Germany where you can compare prices and products. This is excellent because you can browse from a lot of stores before trying to buy your gear or accessories.
