Traveling to South Korea and our Expenses

Good day to you guys! We did continue our plan going to  South Korea and it was one heck of fun:) Instead, of writing up all our experiences, I am sharing it through this video below.

DETAILS ON MAIN EXPENSES DURING OUR TRAVEL:

HOTEL AND OTHER EXPENSES

Coldness in thy Window

 Foggy!

From yesterday’s class, I’ve been hearing from my classmates about our hometown having a cold climate as of this time of January. I love this kind of weather so much. It’s not only because the feeling of the cold breeze of the wind but of course  that kind of feeling that makes you stay in bed for a long time, wrapping your body with blanket to feel that warmth from this coldness. That feeling of wanting a hot chocolate to make up your temperature, and while sipping this wonderful kind of drinks, it will let you remember the past. Here in this picture, I woke up at around 6:30 in the morning, and my eyes suddenly amazed with this fog outside my window. How I missed this kind of weather! I am always expecting this type of weather will come in the last week of January or February, but it did come too early. In here, you cannot almost see the sky due to the fog, the coconut tree were almost playing around up in the high, standing in the coldness of this weather held up high. Homes from a far were impossible to see with your own yes because all of them were covered up with this smokeless thing that bare a cold breeze that make your skin chills, which I love it the most.

Our City was considered as the Baguio of the South because it has the similarities with that of the real place called Baguio. Some people say that Marawi City will be a good destination for a traveler if it were being developed by the people who live here.  But to answer this query, people didn’t do so because they remain in the culture why back then. In my own opinion, changes were nice, but I guess this place will be nice if it will stay as it is, in order not to be so much polluted and so much corrupt.

I did grab the opportunity last night going back home at 8:07 in the evening alone, just to feel those feelings I did mentioned here.

Eid Al-adha’s Feast

                 Last Sunday, I was thinking to spend my Eid day here at Iligan City, but somehow after I gave some thought last Monday, suddenly I felt that I’d be lonely if I spend this special day only by myself. That Monday afternoon, I went home while the rain was pouring non-stop. The cars were buzzing and the road was so wet, like it does going to rain forever and everybody seems to be stuck in one place due to this rain. Back then inside the car while we were going back to Marawi City, I couldn’t help but to fell asleep. No food the whole day because I did fast (which is the 9th day of Dhul Hijja), and No sleep at all. My body was heavy.  After 45 minutes of travelling, I am thankful that I did come back home safe and sound. I directly went to my room, put on my PAJAMAS, and directly fell asleep.

                The next morning, I am very thankful that my mom woke me earlier this 4:30 in the morning. It was quite a bit noisy because every minute you’re going to hear those guns from every side, like a bazooka when it’s New Year.  This became a habit in our home town when edil fitr and edil adha’s celebrations were on sight. The people were warned about this because of fear that someone might hurt by doing so, but I guess they don’t mind these warnings since until now they are doing it. It’s their merry making I guess, which is not an Islamic practice but a tradition in one society.

                To give you an overview about this edil adha, the following text is given to the viewer for their readings:

Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ ʿīd al-aḍḥā, “festival of the sacrifice”), also called Feast of the Sacrifice, the Major Festival, the Greater Eid, Kurban Bayram (Turkish: Kurban Bayramı; Serbo-Croat-Bosnian: kurban-bajram), or Eid e Qurban (Persian: عید قربان‎), is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honour the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his young first-born son Ismail (Ishmael)a as an act of submission to Allah’s command and his son’s acceptance to being sacrificed, before Allah intervened to provide Abraham with a Lamb to sacrifice instead. In the lunar Islamic calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah and lasts for four days. In the international Gregorian calendar, the dates vary from year to year, drifting approximately 11 days earlier each year.

Eid al-Adha is the latter of the two Eid holidays, the former being Eid al-Fitr. The basis for the Eid al-Adha comes from the 196th verse of the 2nd sura of the Quran. The word “Eid” appears once in the 5th sura of the Quran, with the meaning “solemn festival”.

Like Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha begins with a Sunnah prayer of two rakats followed by a sermon (khuṭbah). Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the descent of the Hajj from Mount Arafat, a hill east of Mecca. Ritual observance of the holiday lasts until sunset of the 12th day of Dhu al-Hijjah. Eid sacrifice may take place until sunset on the 13th day of Dhu al-Hijjah.  The days of Eid have been singled out in the Hadith as “days of remembrance”. The days of Tashriq are from the Fajr prayer of the 9th of Dhul Hijjah up to the Asr prayer of the 13th of Dhul Hijjah (5 days and 4 nights). This equals 23 prayers: 5 on the 9th-12th, which equal 20, and 3 on the 13th.

          So I took some pictures from this event because usually as a viewer, we always like to see captured moments:

           HAPPY BLOGGINGS!

Out for a Walk

           (October 12, 2013) Saturday afternoon, got a free time on my hand and decided to invite my niece for a walk out in the University. Upon arriving there at around 2 in the afternoon, the eerie feelings suddenly got into me. It’s been five years since I’ve been out from this threshold of this University and I did have lot of memories back in those days. There were those things that I’ve regret about and a lot of things to be thankful. I couldn’t tell each of these memories since it will gave us a lot of time going through about it. I got here and visit in this blogs of mine in order to show few pictures I did captured. This is only far from many.

Occasionally, I plan to travel in so many places and capture a lot of new things outside my home town and the place where I am. But due to the reason of some limitations in life, I couldn’t. Maybe in my next life, I guess I will. So that’s for now.

Happy Bloggings!
