Biloxi Damages By Katrina

Exactly 3 years and a half today, Hurricane Katrina damage severely most of the places in Biloxi and other neighboring places of Mississippi. I was in the Philippines at that time, it is the fiesta of Cagayan de Oro City but my eyes glued on TV watching how Louisiana residents trapped inside their own city. Houses vanished and many lives were lost. Reports were focused mostly on that state for they suffered too much that no one ever imagined Katrina would really caused huge damage.Anyway, in Biloxi as of today, the casino and hotels eventually making its way to regain the business and it is showing progress. But, this place changed so much because you still can see the remnants of the building and houses that once stood in its beautiful place such as these pictures:I put a light arrow pointing to the flooring of the houses. Click the picture to see it clearly. Every vacant spaces that you see in here are all houses before, they are gone and afraid to rebuilt it back.Until now, they are still cleaning the area for some debris. Before the hurricane, there were hotels and buildings on those vacant lots.
This is the old area of the big hotel called Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel, washed out to the sea, you can see all the flooring again. But, they soon build the hotel adjacent to this area.
A big building, but you can only see what's left, the stairs and the land is being sold right now. This area is fronting the beach.
This is what remain in the Marina of Biloxi. This was built as a fancy Marina with huge rooftop and many big boats and fancy yachts dock in this place. The place today is a pile of gravel.This is not an unfinished construction. One of the many buildings that was badly damaged. Only this part were left. The picture at the top is the same building. Just want to share with you guys how sad the history of this area yet, it managed to move on and back to the normal place it was once before. The place is really beautiful though despite of these sight.

Emeril "Bam"

He is Emeril, one of my favorite chefs . I always watch his Emeril Live Show even when I was in the Philippines. I am so entertained by his humor while he cooks. If you don't know him, check him out in Fine Living Network everyday at 7PM ET.
When you watch the show...BAM! BAM! BAM! is a popular word he uses and the audience would just laugh heartedly with his actions and humor. Today, a woman was featured in the news because her life was just saved by a burglary when she fights back using the pan, it happen to be an Emeril product...LOL! Just like Emeril says, the woman just used the pan and "BAM!BAM!BAM! hitting the burglars and they took off running...hahahaha. One of them was caught and the rest are said to be juvenile. The famous "pan" was taken by the police as evidence and so, the woman lost the pan...hahaha. Oppsss! Not really! Emeril, made mention in the show that he will send her a new one. Good stories like this tickles us a bit right?

What A Day

What I did today? Since I was so tired yesterday, I treat myself, hubby and his cousin to The Isle Hotel and Casino just for a breakfast. The food is not so great though, but, I still love the lunch buffet. Anyway, after the breakfast, my hubby like to gamble only $3 hahaha. So, we went in. The supervisor who always stand at the entrance greeted us but, he don't ask my age anymore. Maybe, my look today qualified for over 21 years old...hahaha. While my hubby played his bet, I saw a $0.29 ticket on the machine. The player left the ticket there thinking, it is useless. I took it for a souvenir. My sis-in-law said, some player really leave those ticket or throw specially that it is less than a dollar! So, as I tour around the casino vicinity, I saw a slot machine for a 1c. So, I gambled the ticket, guess what? I won for $10.03...hahaha. What a lucky day and I cash out. Then, we hit the exit.LOL!

Mardi Gras in D'Iberville: The Anxious Crowd

I brought 3 coats with me because it is really cold but since we are facing the sun, it warms a little bit, i just have this one. Finally, my camera had a glimpse of me hahaha.
Hehhee....the baby is cute right?
Some people were walking at the middle of the road looking for their relatives or looking for the right spot. My sis-in-law's family brought their own folding chair, food&drinks.
The front of where I was, not so crowded. You may ask why? Okay, if I have to choose( because I am Pinoy), I will choose a location that the sun would not see me. That area is a shady one and American's like the sun in fact, they wanted a tan skin. Pinoy otherwise, prefer the shady area, we even choose products that has whitening....LOL. That is the main reason why people are situated themselves facing the sun.
Anxiously waiting but other group of people at the back of where I was, they started barbecuing and story telling .... family gathering is really visible.
I love this crowd. Why? It reminds me of the Philippines. The crowd will gather almost at the middle of the road...LOL, just to be at the front line of the action. Guess, it is a human nature and it is not culture based, purely human. Anyway, these pictures tells a lot about the people living in this place. What did you noticed? I will sum it up for you. FAMILY. Yes, every time they have events to see or get involved with, their family is with them, plain and simple. Admirable quality right?

The economy in the US right now is in bad shape. Job cuts, budget cuts and other strategy were taken by companies just to save them.

If the provider will be laid-off from work, domestic problems arise rapidly. Food, medicine, house mortgage/rent, gas money, school and credit card bills soaring up high. The schedule for payment will be jeopardized. Now, if you are in this situation what will you do? You have no money to pay your bills even if you wanted to.

Mardi Gras in D'Iberville: The Crowd

Yep, here I am once again, telling about Mardi Gras in D'Iberville another place in Mississippi. My third Mardi Gras Parade attendance. On the 24th , there will be another one. I love this Mardi Gras season here.
The excited crowd waited anxiously of the parade. pay attention to some of them, almost at the middle of the road .... hahaha. Each family occupy a spot they are comfortable with. See the guy wearing orange? He is wearing his priced possession beads.
This looks like a fiesta. Mardi Gras is really fun. New Orleans has really awesome floats and gigantic props too. I just saw it on TV. We don't go there coz it is a bit far and my hubby doesn't like crowded palces. Say , 10 times more crowded than this. Pretty huge right?
Just taking pictures of the moment.
30 minutes before the parade and people are already ready to catch beads.
This was taken yesterday at D'Iberville, Mississippi and it has the biggest crowd that I attended so far. The floats were many and decorated so nicely. We are situated nearby the meeting area of the participants. We have this strategy so that after the parade, we can go out from the area first and avoiding the traffic jam. I will make this post a two part, so enjoy the viewing of the faces of the anxious crowd and that includes us...LOL!

My Garden

This is my very crowded garden in the Philippines. Those are blooming orchids and bougainvilla. The plant which has thick leaves is a Citrus microcarpa bunge fruit or known as "Lemonsito" in local dialect. My mother just gave the fruit to those who need it. It is good for cooking and make a juice out of it.
This plant belongs to a vine and has a lovely tiny flowers. I have only 3 colors white, pink and red. I still don't know the names of this.That tree at the far left end corner of my property is a Jackfruit tree. My mother said it has already bear fruit since January and it will continue up to early June. It's my mother's favorite fruit. This tree bear so much fruits and huge too. Once the fruit harvested from time to time, my mother sliced it and share it to the neighbors. So, they are really looking forward when is the next harvest Jackfruit.This is what my garden in the Philippines looks like. Very crowded LOL. But, I miss it so much. Every weekend, I make it a point to-re arrange the location of the flowering pots in an area which has more sun to make it more "happy". My mother and I love gardening so much even though, I can't memorize the kind of flowering plants I have in my garden, I just adore the beauty of it.
