Villa Igang Beach Resort, Guimaras Island

An Amateurs Perspective

The day after the Flying of the 15k lanterns, I went to the Island of Guimaras again.  (May 25, 2013)

This is actually my 2nd time coming to Villa Igang and actually slept here for the night.

Only way I could figure out how to do that was to get into law enforcement. After six years of applications, interviews, and a bachelors degree, I have realized I really do not have the assertive and authoritarian personality that is required of such position. I joke about why I joined the…

Kimono is a traditional Japanese robe worn by every Japanese from the Heian period (794 to 1185) up to the Edo period (1603-1868). The kimono style had interestingly evolved through time.  When it was introduced during the Heian period, the focus was more on the cut, fabric and comfort. From the Kamakura Period (1192-1338) to the Edo period (1603-1868), it revealed information about the status of the wearer.
