Buda... again

Last2x Saturday(Feb 9) a couple of officemates and I went to Buda and stayed their overnight. We rented a rest house at Island in the Sky and the main feature of the house was the fireplace...err truth be told it was the first fireplace that i came in contact with :-P It was that cold there to warrant a fireplace, I think the place is 4000 Meters Above Sea Level so that explains. Anyways, as usual i enjoyed the place and we revisited Seagull Resort and bathed at the man-made waterfalls even if I was freezing my ass off. I wish I could build a house there someday. Here are a couple of pics from that weekend:

The perfect ending ...dinner at Santander, "Hito-an sa Calinan"

I am a big fan of flip flops! It seems that I can't get enough of them. I buy them because they're comfortbale to wear but somewhere along the way collecting flip flops became a hobby because of those various designs available. It started with Havaianas and later on I learned to appreciate other brands from Brazil like Praia and Ipanema.Anyways, I was browsing through the Ipanema site and saw this design...

which is really...really... similar to this..

Don't you agree?

So the dilemma here is...what brand should I buy? hehehe Kidding aside, they are too much alike to ignore....you can hardly spot the difference and so i wondered what may have caused this because before each brand have their own unique designs/ trademark. Do they have the same desingers now? Industrial spying? Or maybe they are sister companies.. Mmmmm....
