Plant experts identified Snake Plants and Arrowhead Plants as low maintenance. They only need minimal water and moderate light exposure to survive.

Snake and Arrowhead Plants are best to grow inside the house. In fact, these plants belong to the list of most popular indoor plants among growers and plant hobbyists, and enthusiasts.

Besides beautifying the home, there are also benefits to growing plants. Plants soothe the tired eyes and make you feel happy, especially if you have flowering plants. Plants also purify the air we breathe as they trap various toxins in the air.

I want a neat mini garden to create a cozy atmosphere at home. So, Snake and Arrowhead plants will definitely be on top of my list once I start my planting journey.

Casualty of Development

DPWH workers took down a tree to give way to the road improvement project. It’s just sad to see how the still growing mango tree planted by my late brother-in-law fell to the ground as workers cut the branches one by one.

What’s left of the tree
This is an old photo. The smaller tree in the background was the one taken down.
The remaining mango tree. This is an old photo. It is taller and has more branches and leaves now.

Fortunately, one tree, which is bearing mangoes every year, is spared.

Where to Get the Best Sunset in the World


While there are some places all over the world that are known for their breathtaking display of sunsets, you can actually take photographs of the best sunset in the world right from where you are. When the sun dips low over the horizon, it always casts beautiful display of colors that will never fail to awe anyone.

Manila Bay in the Philippines is considered to be one of the best spots where you can take beautiful sunset photos. The reason for this is because the sun seems to be sinking below the bay while a stream of colors is exposed on either side of the sun. Still, it might be hard to take a photograph of that if you live far away. Even if you live in the Philippines, you would still have to travel going to that spot.

You can simply take photographs of the sunset and you will be surprised with how good it will look like in pictures. The reason for this is because the colors just register beautifully in pictures. You do not need to travel somewhere else just to take pictures of the best sunset in the world.

Remember that the definition of best will change from person to person. What might be the best for you will not be the best for someone else?Sometimes, what you have close is the best that you will ever find and you will wonder why you even bothered looking for something else when it was there all along.
