Hershey's Chocolate World Tour (Part 1)



6-8-08
If you think you can only have fun buying and eating chocolates, (particularly Hershey's) - you're wrong! You can have more fun with a lot of "sweets" in the air, with a lot of things to see and hear about Hershey's chocolates.
If you love chocolates (my hubby does), then go visit Hershey's Chocolate World, located in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Hershey's Chocolate World is the official corporate visitor's center of the Hershey Company.
If you live further away, you need to start your trip earlier in the day. We are an hour and 48 minutes away, so we left earlier :). There is a parking fee for a certain number of hours. Less than 2 hours is FREE, and if you had more than that, payment will be charged as you take your exit from the park.

Watch the Big 3D Show. it's stunning! If you have kids, they will love it. This is an animated 3-D musical adventure as Hershey's product characters virtually jump off the big screen and come to life. Surprising in-theater effects are always added. We love the chocolate aroma in the air. Who knows? You'll also be catching some real chocolates too ;).

Hershey Trolley Works is totally entertaining! You will get the chance to ride on an old fashioned trolley car as you go around the Hershey community. It's all about the inspirational legacy of Mr. Hershey that will be unfolded through a unique entertainment experience. Do you love to sing? Well, you will be singing with your tour guide(s) as well. Fun!
Here are some of the photos we took during our tour experience:

Bible Verse That Inspires Me in Life

Living a christian life is not as easy as most would think. Why? The more we are close to the Word, the more we are vulnerable to the devil's attacks. But faith is our very strong foundation to protect ourselves from these attacks. That faith should be constantly supported by reading the Scriptures.
My Bible motto in life is found in Philippians 4:6-7. (verse 6)"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; (v.7) and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
We all experience anxieties in life, but if we let God take care of our concerns who has the power and the wisdom to take care of them, the opposite occurs, and we begin to see the world as God sees it.
Some people are still badly affected by anxieties and worries it's because perhaps they haven't met their Lord and Savior...Jesus Christ, or perhaps, the faith needs to be strengthened. As Christians, we need to help them by reaching their weakened faith and help them strengthen it by letting them go back to the right path from being lost. Nowadays, with the fast improvement of technology, one way of sharing God's promises are through Cinemeetings and Events. Find out more about the facts of these events and what it can do. In fact, there will be a first-ever annual Theatre Church Conference that will happen in Silver Spring, MD coming October 22-23,2008. Find out more as well about the Theater Church Conference event summary, where our church leaders and pastors will gather together to discuss further about the future of theatre worship.
Find out more details to get your driving directions for the event and as to how you can register online.
Prayers and peace be granted upon all of us in this event :).

Historic Gettysburg, Pensylvania


6-18-08
Later in the day, we arrived and checked in at Eisenhower Hotel, approximately 4 miles south of downtown Gettysburg. I can say the hotel is really one of a kind...with a breathtaking view. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet as it is more located in the countryside. You won't get bored because of the wide vicinity and spaceous garden surrounding the hotel, so much place for a walk if you're fond of doing it :).

6-19-08
If you love history, then Gettysburg is an ideal place to go to. Usually, it's always recommended to start your itinerary by visiting the Gettysburg Battle Theater to see the "experience". It is the most complete way to see and understand the Battle of Gettysburg. If you don't like dealing with history, it's not wise to go and visit...you'll get bored and sleepy! (My husband fell asleep inside the theater, LOL!).

But if you really love to become a historian, then you're on the right track. The highlight of the tour is to go on the Gettysburg Battlefield Bus Tours, which lasts for 2 hours. The tour will bring your senses with canons roaring, rifles crackling, with drums rolling, etc..through a dramatized audio tour while inside the bus.
If you prefer to do this kind of tour privately with your own car, you can purchase a CD for Auto Tape Tours which you can play it in your car and instructions would just guide you to where you should go.

There are more historic attractions to visit at Old Town Charm as well. Just visit the site online for a more complete information on tour itineraries and package plans.

French Quarter Self-Guided Walking Tour (Part 2) - A Repost



I became curious about Moonwalk, so we moved further until we reached Cafe du Monde. It’s a french coffee shop, so without a word, hubby was pulling me going inside and we ended up ordering a coffee and 6 pieces of beignets. He told me this is a famous coffee shop and well liked by almost anybody who would taste their french donuts (beignets) as well as the coffee. My hubby is a coffee lover, so I won’t wonder. I tried getting an ice decaf coffee and it’s sooo bitter…hehehe.




Hubby with the beignets (ben-yeys). He loves eating them. I ate one he ate five..lol!

We spent few minutes sitting on the bench along moonwalk park. The park faces the Missisipi River, it’s kinda like Manila Bay.

Below is a photo overlooking the Mississipi River.


There are some spots where you can relax along moonwalk overlooking the bay. Be sure to take an extra jacket with you. It's cool and breezy out there not unless you're in the summer time with the heat at its peak.

French Quarter Self-Guided Walking Tour(Part 1) - A Repost

December 5, 2007

We did a short walking tour this afternoon at French Quarter here in New Orleans, Louisiana. And yes, so far this is the only state I’ve been so far with banana trees well growing in the coming winter :))



Other photos taken of me while walking along the street are below. New Orleans is well known for its jazzy music where many musicians play on the city streets. These people have great musical talents, but I’m just wondering if they can live with just a meager income in doing these…

Notice the balcony on top of the building? These are widely seen when you walk on the streets. I think this became popular because of the famous mardi gras celebration that they usually do. There are several designs of it which make them fancy to look at. There’s not much to see on the sidestreets though, except for some antique collection shops, galleries, etc…


Notice this guy? This is not a statue. At a first glance you would think he is a statue. It was funny when I just went close to him and it startled me when I saw his eyes moving, lol! Then, I analyzed he is a real human being trapped in a statues’ body!!! hahaha…that’s what he does for living.
