My September bullet journal. The theme was the Philippines. Becuase, We going to visit our origin (Japanese citizen here) country. I’m so excited it’s been 5 years, I miss all the food and my family & friends. We going to spend our vacation in Cavite, Pampanga & Manila for 11 days. Short but we sure, love to stay more but, kids are back to school from summer break.
The front cover was the public transport in the Philippines as they said: “Hari nang Daan” (king of the road).
Jeepneys (Filipino: Dyipne), sometimes called simply jeeps (Filipino: dyip), are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They are known for their crowded seating and kitsch decorations, which have become a ubiquitous symbol of Philippine culture and art. A Sarao jeepney was exhibited at the Philippine pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair as a national image for the Filipinos.
Jeepneys were originally made from U.S. military jeeps left over from World War II. The word jeepney is likely a portmanteau word – a combination of “jeep” and “jitney“, both words common slang in the popular vernacular of the era: “jitney” being a popular term for an American taxicab, and a “jeep” a newly coined term to describe a type of military vehicle (origin from General Purpose, or GP, hence Jeep). Other sources favor the far less likely explanation that it is a portmanteau of “jeep” and “knee”, because the passengers sit in very close proximity to each other.Most jeepneys are used as public utility vehicles. Some are used as personal vehicles. Jeepneys are used less often for commercial or institutional use.
And, draw the map of the Philippines (half of it), the places we will be staying.
The monthly I made mistakes here just watch the video below. The design was the Philippines flag and the national flower was “Sampaguita”
The National Flag of the Philippines (Filipino: Pambansang Watawat ng Pilipinas) is a horizontal flag bicolor with equal bands of royal blue and scarlet, and with a white, equilateral triangle at the hoist. In the center of the triangle is a golden-yellow sun with eight primary rays, each representing a Philippine province.At each vertex of the triangle is a five-pointed, golden-yellow star, each of which representing one of the country’s three main island groups—Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, the central star originally referred to Panay.
A unique feature of this flag is its ability to indicate a state of war if it is displayed with the red side on top, which is effectively achieved by flipping the flag upside-down.
Jasminum sambac is a small shrub or vine growing up to 0.5 to 3 m (1.6 to 9.8 ft) in height. It is widely cultivated for its attractive and sweetly fragrant flowers. The flowers may be used as a fragrant ingredient in perfumes and jasmine tea. It is the national flower of the Philippines, where it is known as sampaguita, as well as being one of the three national flowers of Indonesia, where it is known as melati putih.
My Ultimate tracker, I want everything here… from house chore, Social Media, Personal, and Health.
My weeklies, I used blue, red and yellow as the main color as represent the color of the Philippine flags. As you can see, there is a drawing of the volcano in one of my weekly.
Mayon (Central Bicolano: Bulkan Mayon, Filipino: Bulkang Mayon, Spanish: Monte Mayón), also known as Mayon Volcano or Mount Mayon, is an active stratovolcano in the province of Albay in Bicol Region, on the large island of Luzon in the Philippines. Renowned as the “perfect cone” because of its symmetric conical shape, the volcano with its surrounding landscape was declared a national park on July 20, 1938, the first in the nation. It was reclassified a Natural Park and renamed as the Mayon Volcano Natural Park in 2000. Local folklore refers to the volcano being named after the legendary princess-heroine Daragang Magayon (English: Beautiful Lady). Numerous festivals and rituals are associated with the volcano and its landscape. The volcano is the centerpiece of the Albay Biosphere Reserve, declared by UNESCO in 2016.
I just love what I made the decision to this theme. It’s more fun in the Philippines. Video below.
