Bencab Museum

On  my way to a meeting, I decided to drop by Bencab Museum which was along the way to check it out and have coffee, it was well within merienda time and my stomach was grumbling. Good decision, while i was having my coffee, the artist Ben Cabrera walks into Cafe Sabel. Whoa...the guy is TALL and was wearing his signature cap.  I could not resist the photo opportunity and requested for a pic with him and later for his authograph on the museum guide. Hahaha  I was star struck.  Here are pics of that encounter.

Urbiztondo, Pangasinan

On my weekly commute to and from Pangasinan, I pass by this municipality of Urbiztondo.  You cannot help but notice the good changes made to this place.  New structures, wider and clean roads, good vibes.   Failed to take a picture of the nearby plaza and church but believe me, it was good and well planned .
A refreshing sight indeed.

 Their small and simple but respectable municipal hall
