  • Ty-Funs in the Philippines

    August 3, 2012 Didn't even heard that Typhoon Gener made a land fall but still, it left us terribly damaged. "Gener" with an International name of "Saolo" left the Philippines with 37 people dead and 33 were injured according to GMA News as of today. As I open social media sites, there were lot of posts there which hopes for the suspension of classes. There were no announced Typhoon Signal for Manila (the Capital of the Philippines) as far as I know but still, even college students were protesting for the suspension of classes through social networks due to strong winds and flooded roads.

  • A Run for Pasig River 2012

    Another event for helping the environment! A Run for Pasig River is annually held in different locations in the Philippines since 2008 (As far as I can recall). An annual event that encourages others to take action on the problems of the said river. We commonly know that fun runs are used to produce funds and increase awareness about something. Besides those funds doesn’t just go to someone else’s pockets but to the needy. In this case, our beloved Pasig River. So who is "Pasig River...

Rare Raptor's Offspring - Philippine Eagle

Posted by Reilly Reverie On 12:50 AM Comments

Right on a special occasion for the world came an offspring. The first Philippine eagle bred in captivity named "Pag-asa" had her offspring hatched.
It was said that the hatching process took a dramatic 48 hours before the actual emerging from the shell occured.

According to Philippine Eagle Foundation and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, only 180 to 500 pairs were left in the wild and as the species being considered as critically endangered comes with little effort from many citizens.

This is one of the reasons why we should still get in hand on saving our home planet.
Our race survived for thousand of years, and we could still make it even if we conserve our planet!
We may continue living, but our resources will soon fade and we'll have nothing left...

Lolong found Dead

Posted by Reilly Reverie On 6:01 AM Comments

Lolong, the holder of the Guiness World Record for being the largest crocodile of its kind to be held in captivity was announced dead last February 11, 2013. After being held for 17 months, his rival "Cassius" from Australia now reclaims the title measuring 17ft 11ins while previous holder "Lolong" measured 6.17 meter (20.24ft).


It was said that Lolong was last fed in the middle of January of 2013, but caretakers notice an unusual bloat in his stomach in the previous days. Unfortunately the veterinarian they contacted didn't make it in time. Lolong was said to be in his 50 - 60. A young age for his species which could live up to 70+ years.

It must have been bad news for locals where Lolong was captivated but let's just think of the positive sides. Lolong now doesn't have to suffer the small cage where he really doesn't belong. An attraction given to the Philippines for a short time and as we mourn for the death of an outstanding creature, specialists are currently conducting an autopsy to figure out what went wrong.

Stay tuned as we all wait for the announcement on Lolong's cause of death.

Philippine's 2nd National Flower

Posted by Reilly Reverie On 1:28 AM Comments


From the first and known national flower of the Philippines which was named “sampaguita” comes another flower who’s up for the title. From the fact that Sampaguita was not originally a direct inhabitant of the Philippines, a recent discussion holds the key on making “Waling-waling” a second national flower for the Philippines.

Waling-waling only lives in the Philippines which was found and named after a French Scientist who discovered its existence while the previous and most known Sampaguita was shared to us from India and Middle East.

“The waling-waling blooms best from July to October each year, and a cluster of waling-waling in full bloom is a very spectacular sight,” Puentespina said.[1]

Hopefully, this one would turn to success as Waling-waling is said to be in near extinction and having the study/hearing pass the juries will make this lovely sensitive flower to be in-line with the protective species.
