Survivor Philippines

Tuesday, December 1, 2009 ·

If there was one show my wife and I have followed (almost) religiously for this year, that would have been Survivor Philippines Season 2 which was held at the beautiful Islands of Palau. Anyway, the show was finally over, with Amanda Cooley Van Cooll adjudged as the Survivor Philippines Season 2 Pinoy Sole Survivor.

It is truly amazing how these castaways manage to survive even with the least resources around them. Whenever I watch them, I always remember the Castaway movie by popular actor Tom Hanks wherein he was so happy that he was able to create fire just out of making friction with two stones. It is indeed so difficult to be able to create fire that's why the moment Hanks was able to create it, he made it sure to create a fire pit in order to keep the fire from dying away. Aside from keeping it aflame, a fire pit also helps ensure that the fire is contained in one place to keep it from spreading.

Fire pits may be made by digging a hole in the ground. Of course, the hole must be suitable as to the size of fire you wish to create and contain. As technology advances, people were able to design assembled fire pits and even pre-made fire pits.

Now, fire pits are not only made out of necessity. People are already using fire pits as an additional accent and feature outside their homes. Commonly placed and lit in the gardens, an outdoor fire pit is a sure place wherein groups of people can gather together in a cold night to warm themselves up while chatting and/or having coffee.

These makes an ideal setting in the gardens specially during this Christmas Season where many of your relatives will take a break from work and come home for the holidays.

As for me and my wife, having to come and enjoy the heat coming from the fire pit will make us to remember how the Survivor castaways are trying to make fire and trying to keep it aflame.

Have a great start of the month, everyone!

Advanced Merry Christmas!
