Plan a Family Houseboat Trip

A houseboat trip is a relaxing adventure that the entire family will enjoy. You can leisurely cruise your favorite lake while you enjoy nature and the outdoors. Here are some important tips to consider for a more comfortable trip.

Length of the Trip

Most houseboat rental companies offer trips for three, four, five and seven days. Depending on the size of your family, consider how many days and nights you want to spend on the boat. If you have children, consider their ages and how long they can endure the adventure. If you rent a boat for more than four days, you may need to return to the marina for fuel, fresh water and to pump out the holding tanks. For a five-day or seven-day trip, consider a nicer boat with more conveniences on board.

Size of the Boat

A houseboat that sleeps ten people is more comfortable with eight people, so you have room to move around on the boat. Although the boat sleeps ten, your cargo will take up space as well. Whatever the maximum capacity of the boat, 10,12 or 14 people, drop that number by two for a more comfortable trip or rent a larger luxury boat that can be beached. You can set up a campsite and stay anchored most of the time with on-shore activities like swimming, rafting and fishing.

What to We Take

For safety and comfort, don't overload the houseboat with things you don't need. Pack one small carry-on bag with personal items like clothes, medications, sunglasses and personal hygiene products for each family member. Pack one family bag with for shared items like sun tan lotion, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner and a blow dryer. Pack an entertainment bag with a radio or CD player and a few books, board games or puzzles for night time activities. If you plan to fish, take just enough fishing gear for easy storage.


 You'll need food and cooking supplies. Since the ovens on most houseboats are very small, take small pots and pans. Typically, there's no refrigerator, so you'll need a good ice chest and lots of ice to keep food and drinks cold. You can save money by preparing food at home for your trip.

Towels and Linens

 You'll need to bring washcloths, towels, pillows, sheets and blankets for each person. The beds on most houseboats are vinyl-covered boat cushions that float. Although the boat foam is comfortable, fitted sheets for each bedding area will provide extra comfort and softness.

Pasaka Festival Is Back

Pasaka Festival is one of the highlight during our town fiesta. Its a thanksgiving for all the blessings recieved from our Patroness, Our Lady of the Assumption. Last year, the local government decided not to celebrate the festival because we are still recovering from the devastation brought to us by super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). After more than a year Pasaka Festival is back with a bang. So far, this year is the grandest celebration I have witnessed since the festival started. I am thankful I manage to witnessed it inspite of my hectic schedule that day. To our Patroness, thank you for the blessings that you've beatowed to me and my family.

Prepping for a Close Shave

Men looking for a close, clean shave have always trusted the straight razor. While this may seem like an antiquated method of hair removal, the hard fact is that a straight razor shave will be the closest shave a man can get. Period.

If you have been using modern razors for a while, there will be a bit of a learning curve at first. In the end, the benefits will far outweigh any initial hassle. To help you guys along on this new journey, we have put together a little 'how to' on dealing with shaving soap.

This type of soap is meant to be worked into a lather using a shaving brush, and then applied to the area to be shaved, It is the old-school version of today's aerosol shaving creams, only with a much smaller environmental impact. You can find both shaving sticks and soap in the stores. Both are similar, but today is all about the soap.

To begin with, you are going to need to pick up a mug or scuttle. This is the dish your new soap puck will sit in. You can go all fancy and pick up a new one at the store, but to save a few bucks, hit a local thrift shop and grab something that strikes your fancy. Once you have your dish, you are ready to prep your soap and brush.

Begin by getting your shaving brush wet. not just typical wet, but really soak that thing. Fill a bowl, glass or the bathroom sink with hot water and let the brush sit in the for about thirty seconds. Once soaking is complete, begin to drain the excess water from the brush. You want to get most of the water out but leave enough to form a thick lather with your new soap.

Next comes loading the brush. To do this, gently swirl your shaving brush around the top of your soap in a circular motion. Once a lather starts to form, begin alternating directions to really work the soap onto the bristles.

Soon you will have a beautifully lathered brush. Apply the lather to your face once the brush is ready. There is no secret way of doing this, just whatever works for you. Once your face is fully covered, you are ready to begin shaving.

Fiesta Mode Is On!!!

No doubt the town fiesta is fast approaching. The newly built town plaza is in a fiesta mode since August first. I was able to witnessed the fire work display before the nightly cultural show were formally opened. Too bad I was not able to witnessed the whole firework display as I was sitting in the covered stage. So yes, I was not able to see how beautiful it was. Well, what matter is I was there and saw that this year fiesta celebration is well prepared.

I am also looking forward to the highlight shows which will start tomorrow night. But the unfortunately I may not go to the plaza coming Thursday. But I hope I can so I can see the local invited celebrities.
