Family Vacation - Dec 2013 - Davao

In my 30+ years of existence, we never had a family vacation outside of Luzon. Last December 2013, mama, my bro and I went to Davao to "train" mama to ride a plane. I think she liked it and it's going to be the first of many travels for her.

I was excited and a bit cynical when I watched the teasers for this latest telefantasia from GMA-7. But when I saw the costumes (reminded me of LOTR), I am now an Encantadia convert! To think that all of the main protagonists are women!

... "Encantadia" is divided into four kingdoms-Adamya, Lireo, Hathoria, Saphiro -- each bearing the gems that represent the four elements, wind, water, fire and earth.

...."Even more riveting are the beautiful muses of each kingdom that are the true jewels of this show: Sunshine Dizon as Pirena, Iza Calzado as Amihan, Karylle as Alena and Diana Zubiri as Danaya. Dawn Zulueta as Ynang Reyna is really MAJESTIC with her fairy-like demeanor!
