Ventnor Botanic Garden

With the plan of making it a relax (no strict itinerary weekend) we stayed & strolled around the Ventnor Botanic Garden while waiting for the B&B check in time. 

The 23 hectare garden was lovely and well kept. And the biggest surprise was that the entrance was free (you only pay for the parking). It was a good place to chill, there's a lot of picnic tables for everyone to use and a nice play area for the kids to enjoy.

August Bank Holiday

We were invited to a birthday barbeque party at the Isle of Wight. We decided to make a weekend out of it and went there earlier. Right up to the last minute we were still undecided as to where to go so we just went to where our nose and feet led us. 

Our first stop was Ventnor where we laid our mat and enjoyed our sumptuous picnic. Stayed here most of the day to enjoy the sun and the view. The following are some of the pics of the view from where we were...

Photo Hunt - Wrinkled

It's a tough one this week but found one that I think should do the trick. Here's a pic of a 'wrinkled' man reading a cook book of the famous ('wrinkled') British celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay. Now, who do you think has got more wrinkles?

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and happy Photo Hunting!

Cowes Festival 2008

Random pictures that I've taken whilst waiting for the fireworks last Friday at the Cowes Festival...

This lad kindly agreed to have his picture taken after my friend bought a humongous Tigger balloon.

The crowd was getting bigger so my friends and I decided to pick a spot. We decided this is good enough spot to view the fireworks. So this is my view for a good hour, not bad hey?

Cowes Festival 2008 - Fireworks

As promised, here they are, more fireworks pictures!

The lovely day was concluded with the display of spectacular fireworks. It lasted for the longest time and it was just magical. I took loads of photos but for most of the show I just stood back and watched in amazement!

Do you know any blogger that kick ass?

Maybe they’ve got incredible, original content. Or they’re overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a blogger friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it’s someone who simply inspires you to be a better person… or someone else who sends you to the floor, laughing your ass off.

Whatever the reason may be, I’m sure you know at least a couple of bloggers that kick ass. Well…why not tell ‘em so?

Spread some luv!

2. Bridge – you travel to all these lovely places and you have a way of sharing your experience that makes me feel like I'm there travelling with you.

4. Arjaeuse – For being a good ambassador of Philippine tourism, for always helping me ease my homesickness by posting your travels and pictures of the beautiful Philippines! You certainly deserve this kick ass award!

Beatle Mania! 2

It was a really good night with great music and people dancing. And as the sun set people took their wands out and started dancing with them. I took pics of the dancing lights (with the help of our good mate Richard). Here goes...

And as the concert comes to an end, the night was concluded (literally) with a blast: A showcase of fireworks!!

Beatle Mania!

It was our good mate Sally's 30th birthday & we celebrated it here at the Meyrick Park in Bournemouth with no less than the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra playing Beatle songs.

Good day, loads of food, a little alcohol (always essential, hehe), great music and best friends! What better way to spend Friday night!

South Western House

The South Western House which used to be the South Western Hotel was originally built in 1865. In 1912 many wealthy people stayed at the hotel before embarking the Titanic.

The current owner retained many of the interior and exterior features as well as the early architectural ornamentation and iron work.  The majestic staircase that was copied by the Titanic was renovated to its former glory.  The marble walls, chandeliers and painted mural ceilings were also preserved and restored.
