My family and I just got off the plane, finally arrived safely back to Clark International Airport from Hong Kong. We were so looking forward to go home. It is so true that

“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss II

Week before Valentines, my daughter gave us a card made by her tiny hand. I came home from work when she handed it to me with all smiles. My exhaustion and stress from work were all gone in just a snap.

I immediately took a photo of her happy, loving face!

happy val

Valentines came, and she handed me another card.

I was teary eyed this time! She is really that thoughtful! This is the best present a parent could get!

I am forever thankful I have her as my daughter! 🙂

For that, she deserves a sweet kiss!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

My entry for Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise.

Looking back on my birthday last June, I remember how they surprised me with a cake! I normally don’t celebrate my day ‘coz I already stopped counting my age ;). We just bought “pancit palabok” and roasted chicken for lunch. Suddenly, while singing “happy birthday”, my aunt came out from the back with the chocolate cake. Wow, felt really special and the cake, it’s really delicious!

The three kids went crazy over it. See the first picture, they started licking the cake. Hahaha. Who would also forget, they were the ones who blew the candle. hahaha.

Pancit Palabok by the way is a Filipino Rice Noodle dish with shrimp sauce topped with boiled egg, cooked shrimp and squid, boiled pork, crushed chicharon, tofu, scallions, and fried garlic.. I encourage you to try it.

You might like the recipe for Pancit Palabok, please check here.

2012 is almost about to end. Isn’t it great to look back at the blessings we received this year? Not to mention, we survived ‘dooms’ day. Yes!

Have a great weekend and Happy Holidays!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

How I wish we also have the 4 seasons; spring, summer, winter and fall. Here in the Philippines, we only have dry (November to April) and rainy season (May to October). Have you heard of the recent storm that hit Mindanao last week? So heartbreaking… Even if it is supposed to be “dry”, our brothers in Mindanao were badly hit. See the effect of climate change? We should take care of our environment and do our share, even in simplest ways.

Back to the theme.. Since it is December, you will find the change in season not with the work of nature but with creative human mind and hands with Christmas spirit. I love how the houses and malls were decorated for this season. Say for example, the Christmas tree below, the theme is for children. So, the tree is surrounded by kids in different faces.

NEW1 012

The whole mall is surrounded with hot air balloon and kids around. I must say, they chose the right theme. Christmas is really for the kids, right? This is located by the way in Shangrila Mandaluyong.

Now, this one here is the cutest of all. Who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse? The kids are crazy over this character. Megamall is in partnership with Hongkong Disneyland to promote tourism. I am getting more excited for our upcoming trip this Dec 27th. See my count down at the right side below?

I have already shared the this gigantic tree in Araneta. This is what I always see going and coming home from work.
xmas 010

But ofcourse, nothing is more special than our very own Christmas tree at home. It is just simple, my mom bought the slim type. I can’t imagine if we have the big one with three active kids around. Hahaha.

How many days to go and it’s almost Christmas. Don’t forget the real meaning of it, Birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ! Have a great weekend.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Reflections of my daughter

I stare at you in the mid of night,
I look at the curves of your tiny face,
The curl of your beautiful hair.

And these are the reflections of my daughter,
The one I hold dear.

Your hands are so small,
Yet you embrace so much,
You hold the world in one hand,
And in the other lies the love of your mother.

Your eyes are so bright,
They are the path to your future.
Your lips deliver the words I will never forget,
Your smile brings me joy,
And your voice brings me laughter.

These are the reflections of my daughter,
The one that truely matters.

I love you my daughter,
With all of my heart,
When my life began,
You were the start.

As I sit here and watch you sleep,
You are so innocent,
you are flawless and unique,
You are my one true masterpiece.

One day you will be grown,
And all I will have are memories,
So I will take this time to watch you sleep.

You are like an angel,
you are still like a rock,
You are beautiful like a flower,
you are your own person
The reflection of my daughter.
