Not Blue! A Happy Day at the Mall!

These pictures were taken when we went to the mall to have a simple celebration for our 15th year wedding anniversary.  It was such a short afternoon,but the kids had a blast!
 My eldest son, the superhero! Not as buff though, ha ha ha!
 My son Danniel, as cute as these cartoon characters!
 Taken at a ride, the rockin boat. Just looking at them made me dizzy, ha ha ha!

Friday Letters

Dear Christmas, Why are you in such a hurry?! You are just 4 days away and I haven't even finished my Christmas shopping! But don't worry about me, my kids are so excited for you! Dear Traffic, why are you so horrible? You are just line in banks and grocery stores and department stores! Can't you join in the Christmas spirit and be a little kinder and stuff? Santa will take you out of his 'nice' list because you are anything but nice lately! Dear Friday and last day of the work week, can you hurry up a little! I have so many chores to do! Dear Work, thanks for being so light, giving me time to finish some chores. Dear Veronica Roth, Can you hurry up with the third book please? I am having withdrawal symptoms already! Dear Christmas Parties, can we just eat and raffle some prizes? All the hassle takes out the fun from a party! Dear everyone, Can we please not forget that Christmas is about CHRIST, and not about gifts?

Wifi Zone?!

Found this Wifi zone sign in the obscure part of the beach in Boracay. Dont know if its true though, ha ha.

Ahh, For Exercise!

When I saw this sign, I had to look twice since I wasn't wearing my glasses.  For a moment there, I thought... Ha ha ha! Whew!

V is for Violet!

Beautiful violet flower to make your day! Sure made mine extra wonderful!

No One is Too Old for Cotton Candy!

A visit at our favorite park is never complete without too much play and too much sugar! And here to give us that much sugar is, tada, the Cotton Candy! It comes in all sorts of colors and we got the blue ones!
 One is not enough for my kids so they each got one!

Happy faces! And not in the pictures, are the oldies (me, my husband and my mom) enjoying our share of the sugar rush!

Peace Wall

This is the Peace Wall at the QC Memorial Circle.  I was thinking what sort of peace the people who writes graffiti get from vandalizing the wall, but what the heck, to each his own. That's what peace is all about!

Quezon Memorial

The beautiful skies by the Quezon Memorial Circle, our favorite park in the world! The morning was a little cloudy, but thankfully it didn't rain.
From another angle when the dark clouds rolled by, the sky was cloudy but clearer.

No Eating and Drinking!

The sign says "No Eating and Drinking Beyond This Point" (which actually made sense because there were huts for rent just for those purpose) so we did the next best thing!
And that is posing for pictures by the beautiful Pagudpud Beach in Ilocos! Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, but its just too bad we don't have time to take a dip!

Boy: Nay may ulam ba?
Nanay: Tignan mo na lang dyan sa ref, anak.
Boy: Eh wala naman tayong ref, di ba?
Nanay: O, e di wala tayong ulam. Konting common sense naman dyan!

Boracay Souvenirs!

Just some of the many souvenir and gift items you can find at the island of Boracay.  This one below is so cute and fun, a rock concert! Too funny!
And a numerous collection of ref magnets to bring home.  They also come as key chains, in all sorts of yellows and other wondrous colors!

Friday Letters

Dear Christmas, why are in such a hurry? You're just around the corner and I'm not even starting to write my list! Dear mornings, why are you the best time to go to sleep? Why do you make it the hardest to get up when you know I have to get up? Dear Hair, why cant we agree for a day and be good for once? Dear annoying office mate, can you stay away from me, like maybe, a planet away? Dear congested nose and allergies, why wont you leave me alone?

Parks Are Not for Sleeping!

The signs reads "Parke ay pasyalan, hindi tulugan", translated, it means, parks are for recreation, not for sleeping.
And with a park as beautiful as this, why would you rather sleep? So, we spent our morning roaming and walking around the park, and taking pictures!
It was fun!

T is for Tarsiers

T is for Tarsiers! These cuddly creatures can be found in Bohol, in the Philippines. They are marsupials, not unlike the Koalas.
And they are shy! And I feel sorry for the little guy for having to endure this when he should be sleeping! At least, the guests took heed and shut the camera flashes off.

Pink & Blue Christmas Trees!

Christmas is here! Taken last Saturday at the skygarden of one of the malls here.  They have an awesome display that makes walking around the mall fun! Makes you get into that Christmas spirit!

Friday Letters

Dear Monday, Apologies, but this is a Friday Letters post. Dear Danniel, thank you for the wonderful 10 years of your life and I hope you have a lot more happy years ahead of you. Dear Rice and other carbs, hope not see you in my plate so I wont miss you that much! Dear Passport, eager for you first stamp ever? Dear Cambodia trip, why are you so far away?  Dear 4-day work week, please go a little faster!
