Avilon, the Second Time Around

Abril 6, 2008

The first time I visited Avilon Zoo a couple of years back, I really loved the experience!

Welcome to Avilon Zoo

Yesterday (April 5), together with some friends from work, I spent a whole day at Avilon Zoo for the second time, and boy, I had a wonderful time! As they say, the second time is always sweeter, well in this case, much, much better than the first since a lot of improvement had been done by the administration of the zoological park (and still doing more until now, kudos to them).

Unlike my first visit, our small group didn’t hire a tour guide. Since I’ve been there before, maybe I’ll just be the tour guide (minus the explanation about the animals, of course! 😀 ). Avilon Zoo is a seven hectare park and it’s fun to get lost at such a big place when you’re with carefree, good-tempered people. Nobody complained about all the walking, the heat or to those who arrived a little late. All of us just had fun! And I’d like to share just how much fun we had.

I am not referring to the publishing house. 😀

Recently, I discovered a restaurant along Kalayaan Avenue in Diliman, Quezon City that serves delicious authentic Filipino dishes. Diners can take their pick of favorite dishes from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

I’m excited! I joined Sony Ericsson’s photo contest — TOPSHOT — and six of the photos I submitted have been accepted!

Sony Ericsson allows you to share your best shots of the Philippines with the rest of the world through this contest. Show off what you’re proud about our country. All you need to do is take snaps with your Cyber-shot phone and submit the pictures here.Sony Ericsson is giving away really cool and exciting prizes. Check them out here.

Honestly speaking, there are a lot of good photos there. You can flip through the TOPSHOT gallery and you will be amazed. I’m personally thankful that camera phones were invented. They’re handy when there are moments worth capturing and you’re not carrying your SLR or digital camera. 😀

These are my entries:

What do you think? Do I have a chance? 😀
