This is the brand new motorcycle that my husband bought when we were in the Philippines for my brother Gado. He just arrived from picking up this from the dealer. Gado drives motorcycle for a living. And his old motorcycle is really old. It still runs but it has a lot of problems. So my husband decided to buy him a new one. My brother is so lucky. I hope he’ll take care of this and use this for the good of his family and of everybody.

Thanks to my generous husband. I really appreciate the care that he gave to my family. And this made me lucky to have him. Thank you so much.

This is 3/4 of the people who joined us at the beach when we were on our vacation; my immediate family, relatives, neighbors and neighbors' girlfriends. Most of them I know and some I don't. I did not have a chance to capture some of them because they already went swimming and some were cooking. Plus, it was already dark. We got there late. We shouldered all the expenses from food, transportation, beach entrance and everything like we did last year. We managed to hired a mini-bus and a jeep for all of these people while my husband and I hired a taxi. It was expensive in terms of Phil money. But the smile, the joy, the laughter and the excitement of these people are more than everything. Watching them having fun was more than enough and watching my husband having fun being with these people was a satisfaction.

I had a long day at work today. I started at 6:30 as always and they let me stay until 5:30. But I managed to get off later than 5:30. My body feels heavy not because of being fat but because I am so tired. So now I don’t want to do anything. I don’t even want to think of tomorrow because tomorrow is another long day. We’ll be closed at 4:30 and spend the last two hours in cleaning our rooms. Gosh! I am not even excited of my Saturday because it will be the longest day of the week for me. I have to baby-sit from morning until maybe midnight. (I hope not until midnight.) Gosh! What a torture to myself. But it’s okay. I spent all my money from our vacation. So now I have to work so hard to replace my lost savings. Plus I still have project to finish back home. So double hard work.

Vacation is over. I am back. It was hot and sticky in the Philippines when we were there. But, we still enjoyed every single day of our trip. It was so good to see my family again. I got to hug and kiss them. Of course there were tears for a while. My nieces and nephews have grown so much already. Last year, the oldest was just a kid but now she is so grown up. Amazing! The youngest of them still did the same thing. He cried the moment he saw me and my husband. It broke my heart but I understood. He only saw us twice. He was getting better though a couple days before we left. He even let my husband feed him. It was so much FUN. I will find time to post some of the pictures that we took during our trip.

See you…
