June'06 Vacation Updates

My flight is delayed until 6pm today and while I sit here at departure area waiting for time, I sit and ponder in what has happened on my one week vacation. The only regret that I have is that I did not have enough time to eat some local fruits like avocado, atis, langka, Indian mango at gulay na bulanglang….I’ve only managed to eat santol, nilagang mani at mais…well there will always be a next time…

Okay, let me do a daily write-up of activities that we did for the last one week….

16-June, flight home. Arrived early at the airport and was on our way home by 3pm. Kasama ang mga peborit pamangkins so as usual daan muna kami sa meryendahan bago umwi, arrived home at 5.30pm

17-June, Saturday and whole day was spent at home with the peborit pamangkins, kakatuwa kasi si Vince at marunong ng magsalita ng lobo, yoya (lola), tuta (tita hehehe), batu (baso), atu (aso) at yayibee (Jollibee, of course..), Vince is 1.5yrs old…Si Ally naman ay super lusog din at panay buga ng laway hehehe (she’s 5mos…

Leaving Home for the kids Future…

Is this always the case for most of the families back home, willing to suffer being away from each other so the kids will have better future??

As it is my brother in law will leave tomorrow for Libya on a commissioning job. He has resigned on his permanent post as supervisor in the process industry near our place to earn more. His earnings on the local job, though not that minimal is not enough for the increasing expenses of kids going to school and at the same time managing the everyday living expenses aside from house mortgages. Such is the life of middle class earner back home. And such are the cases of continuous giving-up of permanent positions and good pays to go out of the country and earn more, at least earn enough to have all the basic necessities covered up…..

What’s really sad to know is that my nephews will probably grow up without their father’s guidance. Their father will not be there to see the important events in their growing –up years, all the milestones on their scho…

The Great Singapore Sale (GSS)

You wouldn't believe the crowd yesterday at Suntec City...
There was even a queue on the escalators..this was because of the GSS where some shops go at 70% off on their items..this is the right time to go shopping and normally all people here thinks the same heh...so yesterday we started at Orchard Road with the same crowded frenzy then move on to City Hall Interlink Mall where we bought some dvds, then on to Suntec City for Iel's school shoes...aside from the crowd I think we did have a good deal coz we got a Rockport shoes at only 60sd (original proce is 140sd)...see what I mean?! it's really cheap to shop during these times, just be prepared for big crowds and some dehydration hehehe...after that we rush to a taxi stand and yes there's also a long wait but still we are able to get one by just waiting for 10min, so home at last by 7pm...tired but happy to survive another outing during the GSS...

And now my sister sms that Iel size should be size 8 or size 9...grrrr...h…

Tapusan sa Sambat '06

Yap ngayon nga po ay isang mini-fiesta sa Sambat, well tapusan ng Flores de Mayo and normally me misa yan sa umaga, me konting palaro tapos sa dapit hapon ay me pursisyon ng Mahal na Birhen Maria kasama ang mga sagala at mga Reyna...Reyna Elena, Reyna Emperatris, etc, etc...dati alam ko lahat pangalan ng mga reyna kasi kami ang organizer sa events na ito, well that was during my teenage yeasr (tagal na nun...)
That time was one of the best time of my life, masaya kami nun...

So these days wala na yata masyadong sigla ang pagpupugay sa Birhen Maria every May....Normally this Flores de Mayo is to ask for rain kaso ngayon unpredictable na yung weather so it's now the least of the reason why we have Flores de Mayo..
I am glad anyway that this tradition still stays even though there's so much changes in the last years..at least FLores de Mayo for Mama Mary still remains...

Jolo and his pets....

My nephew really like to take care of animals..the only problem is at his young age those pets really didn't last long and he always get upset whenever his latest pets goes on...

Last time he has a couple of love birds, some fishes and a hamster. When the birds died, his papa got him some chinese chickens and he was happy..then he lost his fishes (which sometimes he feeds rice grains hehe..) and then lost his hamster too...So when he recently lost his chinese chickens he got upset and threw tantrums like why all his pets died...Just yesterday I learned that his father got him some fishes again ang a much bigger aquarium and he was telling Tita Chel that I will bring him oxygen daw for the fishes hehe..I have an extra aquarium pump here and i was telling Wena I'll bring it home for his fishes, so that's where he got the oxygen part..Now he was saying he wants a dog this small daw but he doesn't want the dog to grow big...mga kids nga naman....

Anyway Jolo is six years old…
