TO ALL the motor sports enthusiasts and/or book collectors out there. I just found about half a dozen pieces of the FAST LANE coffee-table book published by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) in 2005. The books are practically “new” and in perfect condition.
LAOAG CITY. MAY 2, 2014. â€“ It’s the second and last day of our Ilocos family road trip. We just visited the bell tower ruins of Bacarra, Ilocos Norte. OurÂ next stop in our very busy itinerary for the day: the sand dunes of La Paz in Laoag City.
We arrived in the sand dunes of Laoag City around 1:00PM. Not the ideal time to do any of the activities waiting for us in the sand dunes. We know that all too well but we really did not have much choice. That was the only available time for usÂ to visit the place.

If this ever goes commercial, it can revolutionize computing.

Over The Edge of The World is a non-fiction written like an adventure novel. And for a history addict like me, this easily falls under the “perfect book” category.
It narrates, in great, research-based details the events before, during, and immediately after the famous expedition to the Spice Islands of Ferdinand Magellan. This was during the great age of exploration, when half of the world was still an unchartered frontier by the leading civilizations of Europe.
