Full of Interests

Ahhh.. time flies so fast.!!

My lil girl Bianca is now in Year 3 and she's getting beautiful each day. At 8 years old she is very smart and as usual a chatterbox. She loves school and love even loves to join most of the school activities. She is an all around girl for she is into dancing , sport  and now she is showing signs of loving music and wanted to play a musical instrument too. Yay.

I remember my older bro also nags our mom that he wanted to have a guitar and a piano. If the Internet is already used by that time, there's no doubt that he'd also ask for  a piano.

Anyway, I'll support my daughter all the way through and if she wants to sing, dance or play any musical instrument as long as she will do good in school as well. 

Super Busy

Ahhh..... life can be so busy at times...

Life down under is great and I'm so blessed that I'm sharing the good blessings with my family. Right now, I'm busy with my studies and hopefully I'll finish soon so I can apply what I have learned. No time to stay online for long time but I can sneak and read all the updates at my FB account.

A Much Needed Vacation

Taking a vacation is something we all want and need. Working all year long and not having time to relax and unwind can make us feel bored and exhausted. Travelling and taking some time from work can be relaxing and can rejuvenate us. It will take our mind off from stress and worries from work for a time.

Nothing beats the priceless moments that we’ll share with our family and friends. All the experiences will be memorable so take time to take photos or videos for you to take home. I love going out of town with my family; it’s one of the many ways we can bond as a family.

My husband and I would always book in advance to get good rates. Anyone wishing to go to a certain place must need to research about the place and know where is the good place to stay and do fun activities. Since we have kids that love to explore all the time, finding child friendly resorts or place is a must for us.

We can check online and book cheap hotels for we can get good deals by booking ahead of time. Hotels become fully booked most of the times especially if it is holiday, so it’s better to have a reservation. Online travel companies are booming and a lot of them are offering competitive rates and that benefits us travelers for we can avail of their promos and discounts. You don’t need to go to your local travel company for booking and reserving can be done online, a very convenient way for travelers.

I’m wishing that we can travel back home in the Philippines soon for I missed my family back home already. I also wanted my family to experience what’s life in Pinas again. It’s been 4 years already since we went there and I’m sure they wanted to see and ride jeepneys and tricycles one more time. I’m also itching to taste our local foods again even though I can cook some here. Ahhh… I can’t wait.
