Lola Gerlinda's Hobby - Plants & Flowers

Flowers are the new hobby


Hello, we are Gerlinda and Dieter Sokoll. Gerlinda is Filipina and Dieter is German. Since the KNIGHTS OF RIZAL have bestowed the knighthood on Dieter in Decemter 2017, he is called Sir Dieter and with this privilege comes, that Gerlinda is called Lady Gerlinda. Close family and friends call her Gerlyn. We are living in the City of Cagayan de Oro, the city of Golden Friendship. This is our blog, where we post our photos, videos and stories about family, life, travels and our LOLA GERLINDA'S FLOWER SHOP. The reason for this is, that Gerlinda's Hobby shifted from raising pigs to plants and flowers. Because of African Swine Fever she had to stop raising pigs. We both love dogs. That's the reason why a few large dogs are family to us. There are the the German Shepard ladies Bouney and Daisy and our young mixed boy Bravo, daughter of Bouney, who has a Belgian Shepard Malinois as father and is lightly handicapped. At the other end of the house we are having some local cats, they adopted us or we the cats, who knows.

Since Dieter is an active member and by now an elected officer of the KNIGHTS OF RIZAL, Gerlinda becomes more and more involved with the social life in Cagayan de Oro City as Lady Gerlinda.

We had a courtesy call at the mayor and vice mayor of the Municipality of Jasaan.

First we visited the Hon. Juan A. Po, vice mayor of Jasaan, and after that we had a chat with the Hon. Redentor S. Jardin, municipality mayor of Jasaan.

From here we went to the newly opened SOPHIE RED HOTEL in Jasaan, which is owned by the mayor for a discounted lunch, courtesy of or brod SIR GEREON B. “GERRY” VARGAS.

It was planned to have an extra table in the piggery compound for slaughtering.

Help came with Jun² and he brought with him more help from Talisayan.

Breakfast was prepared and consumed right at the construction site. There was enough time for family bonding, once the job was done.

Next day was the day to say good-byes again and see you next week again.

That is what in our little happy family is called “helping each other”!

Gerlinda & Dieter private -Dieter's Video Collection about the Philippines

Dieter is doing some internet works with his own operated websites. There is the DIE PHILIPPINEN IM VIDEO website. Here he collects and publishes videos about the Philippines and also some of his own video work.

The header photos are mostly beautiful Filipinas, somehow the beauty of the Filipinas has to be shown, and he thinks that is the right place.

The language of the website is German, but most videos are in English. So don’t hesitate to watch some interesting videos of the Philippines.

It is not easy to find acceptable videos, because the video world belongs to great part to vloggers, and vloggers tend in an 8-minute video to talk blabla for 5 minutes and show sometimes for 2 minutes a nice footage and using the last minute to beg for subscriptions and likes.
