Hello! My name is CARRIE de PANO from the PHILIPPINES. If you love eating mangosteen, durian and pomelo – I would invite you to visit our beautiful city, DAVAO CITY  where these fruits abound, mostly all year-round. 🙂

I love writing and for the longest time been wanting to put up my own BLOG. I also like to read a lot  (more than watch movies :)), walk around our village in the mornings,  tend to our  home garden when the weather is not too-hot, eat good food (always 🙂 ), and go on unique & exciting but not “too-risky” adventures. I adore pretty flowers, love picturesque landscapes &  appreciate beautiful islands anytime!

Literally on CLOUD 9….at Hakone Ropeway, Tokyo, Japan, Nov2016. 🙂

My life is far from PERFECT but it is not without perfect, awesome & priceless MOMENTS. I thank GOD for all the LOVE He surrounds me with! Truly blessed to have a happy life with my dear husband of 19 years, Butch. He is also known as Papa B. He is my BEST ( and of course, most FAVORITE ) lounging, eating & traveling buddy. He is my EVERYTHING! I am a HAPPY WIFE! 🙂
