    Default vanda orchid farm

    Cheers,

    This afternoon we got bored again and we remembered that this guy from the orchid farm where i got
    a few orchids told us that there's a big orchid farm specializing in Vandas in the same city. So
    we decided to take a drive to look for it, as we dont have enough money to drive to manila to get
    orchids. We got lost a few times but it was well worth it, there's a just a big sea of vandas
    everywhere you go, anywhere you look at.

    The only bad thing is that they dont have much variety as they are selling just a few types, since
    they specializes with cut flowers, actually when we got there they were busy fulfilling an order
    for a wedding give aways, would you believe it, the couple to be married aregiving away orchids
    for souviniers, unfortunately i am not invited.

    Anyways here are some pics, apologies for the quality as i only have a cam phone at my disposal.

    Wow.. you're just going to love those Vandas. When they get going, they are just amazing. I can't wait for mine to flower again.

    Thanks for sharing your excursion with us.

    Randy, your new additions are all stunners! Congratulations! I was wondering... You went to this "Vanda Ocean" and you only got 4?!?!?! That's called self control!!! LOL
    About the wedding... I was thinking... Do they know you're not invided?! You can still go... I mean- they will have many people and they won't know if you were invided from the bride's side or the groom's side... Also they will be busy being happy and are not going to botter for one person's invitation...Right?!?! LOLOLOLOL
    ORRRRRRR... You can meet someone there and pretend you are together!LOL

    Wow, makes me drool. Is that place somewhere in Pampanga? Maybe I can pay them a visit when I get the chance and money to visit my family back home.

    Thanks. Glad you like it.

    Carrie
    You have to fall in line to get that invite hehe. They are giving away 300 JVB's, if you
    look closely at one of the pics (5th), you can see her cutting up a few more JVB's. I forgot
    to take photos of the delivery truck, its just full of Vandas.

    Margo
    Its not called self control, its called the "wife putting a leash on me" control, i can't
    go spending much as she has my wallet. And she always gives me that look.

    Bruce
    yeah who doesn't, it was really a good idea to give away orchids at wedding. And have i mentioned that the bride is soo pretty (dont tell the wife)? the couples photos are
    already tied on the Vandas that have been prepared.

    Marissa
    Yeah its here in Pampanga, in Pandacaqui, Magalang. We had a hard time finding the place as we are not
    really from here. They call the place Pabrika ("Factory"), once you get there you'll see why they call
    it as such. Oh yeah, when we finally found the place, i was soo excited that my sandals strap broke
    so i have to walk barefoot during the whole thing.

    clint
    thanks, well be going back there as we have reservation for vanda sanderiana.


    thank you all, now who wants to join me, the wedding is today and we're gonna crash
    the party? I just forgot to ask one small detail, where is the wedding gonna be? hehehe
