Koi Pond at Pedal & Paddle

I love Koi ponds. There is something about them that makes me feel calm and happy. Just looking at the koi soothes me. And I was so happy to find a Koi pond inside the Pedal and Paddle at the QC Memorial Circle!
I can stay here for a long time just staring at them. I wish I have a better camera to take better pictures!

Cuteness is his Name

Camera Critters

This is Cuteness, a pup we met in Batangas when we went home for All Souls Day. My kids were begging me to bring him home with us to Manila. But unfortunately, dogs are not allowed inside our compound so we really cant keep him. So we just had him for a photo shoot. He is a little shy though.

I Want to Go Back to Boracay!

This was taken in Boracay last August when we went there for sidetrip before attending a wedding in Aklan. I have been to Boracay for four times already, but I cant seem to get enough of it. There are lots of things to do and food to eat and just to relax and get away from it all.
I was supposed to come back to Boracay next week with my husband using free tickets I won during an event, but unfortunately, things have not gone according to plan. Anyway, I will see you again, Boracay!

New Year's Resolution #1

My first resolution for 2012 is to put my finances in order, especially my cash flow. More inflows and less outflows, ha ha. Wish me luck!

Its Almost Christmas!

The shopping malls have been very busy making their stores ready for the Christmas season. Once such mall is SM and with this decor of the Little Drummer Boy and the lighted giant red and silver balls, I couldn't resist being a child and having my photo taken!
It really makes you feel that Christmas is just around the corner especially when you hear carols all over the mall!

Little Piggy

This yellow piggy was our coin bank for more than a year now and we decided to open her up yesterday. We first said that this will be our car money and then our Cebu money. But since we already have a car and we have already gone to Cebu, we cant decide yesterday what we were saving for so we said might as well open her up. And look how many coins she had for us!
It was more than P1,200 and my mom went to the market with her wallet full of coins! It was worth a week of food or so.
And then we sealed the piggy again and will hope to open her up again in a year or two and maybe, she will be a lot fatter then! But we have yet to decide what we are saving for because we have this superstition that if you are saving up for nothing specific, then somebody will get sick and that money will just be used for that. I think we will call it our travel fund for Hong Kong, so we will save for some 3 years or more, ha ha.

Skywatch Friday: On the Way Home

This was the view on the highway from Batangas, going home to Manila. It was a sleepy afternoon and I had nothing to do but try to get good pictures, using my trusty point and shoot. And I think this shot was fine! Love how it captured the sleepy yet alive afternoon!
And the Eeyore and flower just made the scene perfect!

May the Saints Pray for Us

This is one of the "apartment-style- crypt at the local cemetery in our province, aptly named after a Saint. And I wish that the saints pray for the souls of our dearly departed.
