The Season of Flowers is Fading

Legazpi city: Summer has long been gone here. It starts just when the school year ends in March. So students connect summer to days without the regular classes, homeworks and tests. No tensions, more of fun, outings (to the beach and movies?) and also malling (now a favorite past time […]

Orchids Mark Our First Year

The orchids bloom this time at our sister’s Legazpi frontyard are remarkable. Her residence with a certain degree of elevation due to the hillside location of the housing district gives ample growth area for the aerial plants.

Cbanga360: One Year and Counting

Cbanga360, the street journal about Calabanga and many things Bicol, was one idea of how to fill dull days into something worth productive. It turned out, the process of maintaining the blog, i.e., writing posts consume our time coupled with leg work, research, coordination and much more.

Positive Change Sweeps Cbanga360

One big change in the layout came about with the quick approval from Google Adsense. Expect there would be more changes in our endeavor to improve Cbanga360 which may include opening our doors to contributors, more responsive articles, a forum, etc. For this, we always maintain a positive outlook.

We’re Blushing And We Are Moving

We’re humbled to learn some items and passages of our posts here in Cbanga360 on Blogspot and on Facebook, get reposted, quoted and/or referenced in some neat, news/info gathering/sharing platforms.

Blog Comments, Missing or Not the Correct Count

Just noticed this morning older posts (those beyond the home page/first page) with comments from friends and visitors who dropped by are either lost or not counted as it displays “0” (zero) or “1” by merely looking at the bottom of the post. I tested clicking on the comment link and would lead me to the window that displays the comments.

Cbanga360 Followers Appreciation Day

How many times would I tell myself that if ever I follow one’s blog, it is because the contents strike a strong and compelling interest that make me check it out on a regular basis and not just to reciprocate a friendly gesture.

The Ubiquitous Flower of the Season

This post should be less wordy. We’re churning one for Cbanga360 on Facebook, which should be online much later. And that would be about Mayon volcano update. Thank you for hosting Luiz, Denise, Laerte and Valkyrien. See more flowers here at: Today’s Flowers

Flowers Are A Source Of Joy And Delight

Flowers are a source of joy and delight. Even if I am not that familiar of one too many, am posting here a specie gathered from my sister’s frontyard. Could this be the New South Wales Christmas bush flowers (Ceratopetallum gummiferum)? It’s a guess though. Will always stand corrected, maybe […]

Flowers for the grieving heart

Our family, and perhaps much of the folks in our place, have that very close family and extended kinship ties. We still know our cousins up to that we might call “fourth cousins,” fourth degree of consanguinity! (Memory and Tongue twisters: 1st cousins are my parent’s niece and nephews on […]

I’m A Newbie

At one time I visited over one hundred fifty blogs which took me hours sitting by myself and staring at the screen, reading-learning and be mesmerized of the amazing photos and typing comments quick and fast.

Yellow Bells by the Sidewalk

Lucky for us to still find and appreciate flowers so ordinary and common in our place. But for the people ravaged by the typhoons and floods in metro Manila, and still in the flooded area around Laguna de Bay and outlying provinces, and again in northern and part of central […]

My Aunt’s Orchids

Courtesy of our next-house neighbor and also Aunt Lolit, these orchids are blooms in her garden, a source of joy and delight even as she worries about the rainy season this time of the year. When asked permission for the frames, she obligingly lead the way. On a sad note, […]

Wild Flowers in the Outfield

What’s in a name?A flower will still be a flower, though growing wild and uncared for. Dainty and frail, they thrive well and good outside the backyard fence basking at the sunshine, facing the vast, wide expanse of almost endless ricefields. Ano an yaon sa ngaran?An burak fermi nang burak, […]

Adding Ease of Use on Desktop Functionality

Taking time out writing blog by changing desktop make-up and functionality for ease of use. With all the thousands of files saved on folders and subfolders, it takes awhile looking for particular saved material on my notebook.

My First 200 Days in the Public School System

Last March 21 was our school’s Commencement Exercises. It also wrapped-up my first 200 days in the public school. Just like any other things we get involved with, the first teaching experience is always novel. I had my very first year ever as mentor in the public school way back […]

Focus on Qualities of A Good Teacher

One week after the grand school opening hereabout, we expect students and teachers will have started slowly settling into their comfort zones. I should know. I am a classroom teacher for more than two decades in different private schools in Legazpi city and Rizal province. At one time and for […]

Echinopsis cactus surprise summer bloom

Echinopsis cactus surprise summer bloom. This angiosperm in the family of Cactodeae, specifically in the genus Echinopsis, was first nortured starting with just one tiny “bulb”. Easy to grow with no special care, and handling involved, the plant needs less watering, and grows better alternately under the sun, and under […]

The May Flower Power Explosion at my Sister’s Garden

Allow me to splurge in luxury and exaggeration in talking about my sister’s flower plants in her small front yard in Legaspi city. She has appointed enough elbow room and growth space- actually all of the space thereabout- for her source of surprise and delight. She spend good times meticulously […]

Pope John Paul II: A Personal Glimpse

I strongly believe one of the most beloved pope in the world is Pope John Paul II. He visited the Philippines twice. The first historic and memorable visit to the city of Legaspi was on February 21, 1981. He made a return trip to the country during the World Youth Day Celebration in January 12-16, 1995 in Manila.
