Ready for the Cemetery

Another day to go and it is soon going to be All Souls Day, and there after, All Saints Day. Everyone's busy cleaning up the tomb of loved ones in the cemetery as well as prepping for candles and flowers to use over the weekend. Prices have doubled and tripled since last week. I wonder if people will be bringing threaded rods or hammers and all other tools to use. And why should there be tools to use? Some cemeteries have no care takers that family of the departed will have to do the clean up on their own, fix whatever needs fixing and beautify the place. At Oro Gardens however, we need some tools to pitch the tent for us to rest in as we go through the night bonding with family and some close friends, at the cemetery.

How to Find a Good Budget Hotel


Budget travel doesn’t mean giving up on comfort. When people travel for rest and leisure, they open book a quite expensive hotel filled with luxury amenities. Lucky are the people who can always travel in this manner. In reality, not everyone can travel this way as most of us often satisfy our itch to travel with a limited budget.

Part of being a budget traveler is finding an affordable place to stay. Most people who travel on a budget are keen in seeing the sights and learning about the city so they are out on most part of the day and will be back late at night. Basically, they only need a place to sleep and store their luggage. This is a big difference compared to those who travel and wanted to just relax so they opt to stay in their hotel room most of the time.

If you are looking to travel out of the country and wanted a good hotel that is right for your budget then you’ll need to do a little research prior to making reservations. With the number of travel-related websites that offer discounts on airfare and accommodations, it is only necessary to practice extreme caution in doing your reservations online. Browse several websites and compare their room rates. Make sure to search for budget hotels that are accessible to public transportation so that commute will be a lot easier.

It will be best to look at the images provided by these websites to have an idea on the size of the room and what to expect from it. Prior to making reservations, check the amenities they offer. There are some inns and budget hostels that won’t provide a towel so you may need to bring your own.

Lastly, read the feedback and comments from fellow travelers who have been to the hotel on their previous trip.  Reviews can also provide you a good information about the services of the hotel and can give you an insight if you should with them or not.

My Blogs

I have less time to update my blogs now that I am working full time during day time. I used to sleep at four to five in the morning, but now, that is already my waking time. My life right now is far too different from what I used to have. I guess you could say it is a roll-a-bout, or a complete three hundred eighty degrees turn. And although I am quite stressed out from all the stresses that I am facing, still, I am thankful for I can still do what I love to do during my spare time.  Unfortunately, I have less time that I used to, nevertheless, it's still a blessing for me. I am happy that I can still make updates once in a while, and still express my thoughts about things, as they happen, when I am able to blog about them. I miss my blogs--- writing and reading them, and the other favorite blogs that I follow.
