The marination of pork asado and their dunken lechon macao took a long time. The smoky flavor of the pork asado permeates into the meat. Adding chili sauce or tomato ketchup further enhances its spiciness. Four Season Shake is another MUST TRY.

Ms. Vangie Go- plant stall

I saw Ms. Vangie Go at her newly re-opened store within the center.  The selling area is smaller than what she used to have at the Manila Seedling Bank Foundation. She is still renovating her new place .

The big move happened on the first week of January 2014 when almost all of the tenants were forced to find a place for their plants and gardening supplies . Each plant stall is allotted around 50 to 70 square meters . It is a whole lot less space compared to what they have when they are still at the Manila Seedling Bank compound.

 They are now in the process of making it to a community . Each stall specializes in a particular plants or products .

Note: Mindanao Avenue Garden Center is also called ” Garden City ” by some of the tenants .  The 200 plus tenants were relocated in  different garden centers like  Farmers Center, Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon Memorial Circle and Mindanao Avenue with the largest number of stall holders.

Sunflower cottage family resort and personal collection

Meaning of Sunflower

No flower can lift spirits quite like sunflower can. Bright and cheery, bold yet comfortable, the sunflower is a warm and caring gift. With brilliant yellow petals that surround the flower’s center, sunflowers have an unmistakable sun-like appearance that has made them a passionate flower choice for many. Sunflowers come in a number of varieties, ranging from small to large and from daylight yellows to sunset reds.

Sunflowers originated in the Americas in 1000B.C., where for centuries they were cultivated as a valuable food source. The use of sunflower images as religious symbols has also been documented in some native societies. With the European exploration of the New World, the sunflower was brought to new areas, and the flower’s popularity eventually spread as the rest of the world began to appreciate its beauty and sustenance. Artists throughout history have appreciated the sunflower’s unique splendor, and those of the Impressionist era were especially fixated on the flower .  Today, sunflowers continue to provide a resource for commonly used seeds and oil, but they have also become recognized as a floral symbol of great significance.

The way they move their massive heads to meet the sun make them a flower of spiritual attainment, flexibility, and opportunity. They are also symbolic of good luck, wealth and ambition. Give sunflowers away to someone who is working toward a goal and needs a big break in their lives. They are also an excellent housewarming gift as the receiver embraces new opportunities in the form of hearth and home.

A collector and an active member of various horticultural organization , Mrs. Ime Lopez owner of this wonderful resort style with sunflower as a theme , said that seeing her collection of sunflowers make her relaxed.

According to her ,  part of the family compound is rented out to warehouse operators, while her family occasionally used the area for parties and family gatherings. This resort style compound is located in Darlucio street coner Mindanao Avenue near the Rolling Hills Resort in Valenzuela City.

Mrs. Lopez  said that  sunflower had a lot of  meaning in her life . Much of the meaning of sunflowers stems from its namesake, the sun itself. Wild sunflowers are often photographed with their tall stalks and bright petals stretched towards the sun. This unique behavior, known as phototropism, is a motif that has appeared in many ancient myths and is viewed as a symbol of loyalty and constancy. Their physical resemblance to the sun has also influenced their meanings. The sunflower’s petals have been likened to bright yellow rays of sunshine, which evoke feelings of warmth and happiness. In addition, the sunflower is often associated with adoration and longevity.

For a flower which reflects so many of the sun’s positive characteristics, it is little surprise that people enjoy basking in the sunflower’s warming glow. With the sense of brightness and warmth that sunflowers naturally impart, they have become an ideal choice for sending sentiments of cheerfulness and sunny thoughts.
