Unforgettable – Disneyland

I was so eagerly waiting  for Jake to come up with a theme for this week’s challenge. If you don’t know yet, I was away for awhile and detached to the blogging world for some reason (online gaming via my tablet). But, I am back! So, I am more than ecstatic to join back to every week’s challenges!

Unforgettable? Seems hard to choose from many unforgettable memories I have. From my first kiss, (yes, I still do remember that when I was 3 yrs old haha), when my school bus left me in Nursery, when I pooped inside the classroom in Grade 1 (that’s embarrassing), first love, wedding day, birth of my daughter, the passing of my dad… So many memories. But let me just share the recent memorable trip my family had in December 2012.

Some of you would not remember, my niece and nephew are here with us because their parents are working hard abroad. So, they came home last December for a visit. We were booked as early as June to go to Hong Kong. The reunion of their family makes it even more memorable.

I won’t elaborate much on the 4 day trip we had, but let me just share the highlight of our vacation. It was the “Disney in the Stars” that I will never forget ever. I know most of  you are familiar with the fireworks display they have every night, but it’s my first time, our first time. We were patiently waiting and seated in front of the castle for an hour but it’s worth the wait. When finally it started, I had goose bumps all over my body, I almost cried but I controlled my emotions.  I don’t want them to see my cry. Haha I am always a big fan of Disney and my childhood dream came true! That’s why I had the intense, exaggerated reaction. I know some of you can relate to me.

We took video of the show but I really don’t know how to upload it. I picked one via youtube which is EXACTLY the same as what we saw. If you have not been there, I encouraged you to watch it.

I love how the fireworks, music, lights and stories blend together. Alice in Wonderland is my favorite part.

I don’t know how it compares to the one’s in US. It must be that spectacular, too. I want to hear your Disneyland story please.

I really believe that there is still a kid inside us, inside our hearts.

SUNDAY POST :NEW YEAR 2013

New year, new life, new beginning. Hoping this year will bring us joy, success, wealth and good health. May this be heard as I whispered to the lantern up in the sky.

Happy new year!

Circles II / Sunday Post: Concept (Yakimix)

My second entry for this week’s Travel theme: Circles and Sunday Post: Concept.

Together with my high school friends (yes, we still often see each other), we had our Christmas and pre-birthday celebration at Yakimix, an eat-all-you-can Smokeless Grill, Korean and Japanese Restaurant. This place has a vast selection of maki/sushi, salad bar, meat/fish for grilling, soup, seafood and yummy desserts. They also have cooked dishes like pizza, noodles, etc. The CONCEPT of “smokeless grill” is such a hit. It is so much fun choosing and cooking your own food. I’m sure kids will not get bored plus since it is smokeless, you won’t feel like you came from a barbecue party.

Aside from the delectable dishes, the crystal centerpiece caught my attention which is perfect for Ailsa’s theme. So beautiful…

This is my first time to eat here and I’m so glad we chose this place. For P660.00 (with drinks during Sundays), it’s really worth it. What can I say, they have the most friendly and efficient staff, clean and neat restaurant, wide selection of food, I highly recommend this place! Perfect for anniversaries, birthday celebrations or when you feel like eating sumptuous meal. Make sure you have empty stomach when you come!

My advice is to make sure you had your reservation and come on time coz they can only hold it for 15 mins. (6pm-6:15pm). If not, the line is always long especially during weekends. You don’t want to end up in a wait-list, do you?

SUNDAY POST : Autumn

According to Jake, autumn or fall is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere) when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier. Association with the transition from warm to cold weather, and its related status as the season of the primary harvest, has dominated its themes and popular images. In Western cultures, personifications of autumn are usually pretty, well-fed females adorned with fruits, vegetables and grains that ripen at this time.

I can’t get a good subject at this time ‘coz it’s raining pretty hard in Luzon. I’ll just show you our pictures, again, in Misamis Oriental, Mindanao. This was taken by my brother in January 2011 (not even falling from September or March category). The place is lovely thought you might want to see. Our first day spent strolling around the area. 🙂

My pretty niece!

My nephew Luis!

Have a great week ahead!
