It felt like I toured the famous vineyards from France, to Italy, Spain and tasted all the Barolos, Riojas, Domaine de la Romanée-Contis, among other wines! Thanks to my weekend reading: Alice Feiring's book "The Battle for Wine and Love: or How I Saved the World from Parkerization." It's a very very enlightening introductory piece on wines for someone like myself who only differentiates between red and white. :) I super love this book!
I really wish I could get to experience the vineyard visits Feiring did in this book!
"For thoughts and things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe
Each thing must create its kind
And they speed o'er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind."
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Reinerio Alba is a Filipino writer from the Philippines, basically, who is happily creating and manifesting the best things in his life right now. "I believe that we can always re-cast our realities into better ones, by willing them. I believe that without passion, life is not what it is. I subscribe to the idea that everyone is in a sort of process and that we should always aim for our highest possible self. Always. ( I am also a sucker for synchronized swimming, who wouldn't be? hehehe)
People I'd like to meet?
I am drawn to people with a passion, people with a great, natural sense of humor, who are not pretentious, and who always keep a sense of wonder about the world around them. If they can cook and sing, or sing and cook, that would be fab! :)"
