Hello August!

I know this month is almost over , I have been busy running errands here at home, doing stuff for work,  celebrated life b/c my mom just turned 56 , one of the best friend I ever had will be celebrating her birthday on Monday, then my sweet boyfee on the 27th and then on the 28th it’s our 19th month.

A lot of things to look forward 😀 I went gaga trying to plan really something big but it seems like my extravagant idea wont be possible.

We just had a huge storm this week, although it’s not really here in Manila (but somewhere north) it has affected us somehow b/c of the “moonsoon” ,  which caused flood. A dam near our place broke due to the strong wind and almost 3 days of continuous rain, it was terrible (just like the other year).

Water went into our house it’s a good thing that it wasn’t that high, just about my ankle, but still the fact that we have to clean the house right after the flood subsides… it was exhausting. I was awake from 3:30 AM to 8 PM.

I know that was bad, but others got worst experiences…and I just hope that they’ll be able to recuperate soon…specially those people staying in the evacuation centers, lost their homes and their properties…even a family member.

I’m just thankful that we’re all safe, it was just me,my boyfee, my sister and her significant other at home, Mom wasn’t here…but she was worried sick that she decided to come back here in Manila as soon as she had the chance.

This is it for now, I’ll try to update my blog as soon as I have a chance again. Take care everyone

At Manila Ocean Park

 

We spent one day at Manila Ocean Park. The kids enjoyed it and so are we 😀 , we took a lot of photos of the different species of fish but of course I wont be able to upload all of them, there’s like a hundred pictures and I think a thousand species of fish and we’re not able to take pics of all the fish in there…it’s just too many.

We love to go back there, maybe next year…don’t have any definite plans yet.

Here’s a slideshow 🙂

We really had a great time 🙂

I’m thinking where else to go, next time…I thought that it would be a good idea to start travelling within Manila for now, then maybe somewhere up north like Ilocos or Laoag…or maybe in Pangasinan where my grandparents are.

Just a thought…ciao!

 

Sunday : we ♥ re-usable / eco-friendly bags

We thought of attending the 6:45 AM mass, and the priest was right, it was indeed a great day…cloudy, not hot – weather is just right for me. I woke up at 330AM because my plan for the day is actually go to ATC with Mum sometime in the afternoon, but then there will always be that something that will ruin your plans,right? Oh well, but it wasn’t that bad (not at all).

You know what for some reason, I have appreciated a lot of things today, like talking while walking holding hands with my mom from Church to Pan De Manila , we bought Cheese Pandesal, Classic Ensaymada (which is my favorite), Cheese Pesto Pandesal and Pandesal of course , we bought a lot for the Chikiting paTROLLS and our grandparents…just enough so we can buy the Pan De Manila re-usable bag. Then Mama asked if I want to have breakfast at Jollibee, who would say no to that?  I’m actually craving for Sausage and Egg Pandesal, Fries and Coke Float – yeah so much for my heavenly breakfast.

Mama had Sausage and Egg Pandesal too but with hot choco, but she asked for ice, it was soooo hot that she can’t drink it 😀

Me, enjoying the cold coke float…I like dipping my fries sa sundae, instead of ketchup. Yum Yum Yum – yes we’re both wearing red.

When we got home, my cousin Jr (turning 2 next month) is already awake, at the sight of us he started clapping and smiling.

And I just realized we have a growing collection of re-usable bags and I bet we’ll have more, because I love re-usable bags. People should have thought about this long time ago. Most of the malls and grocery store no longer use plastic, unless it’s really necessary.

Actually this is not all of it yet, the Michaela is with Tonyo, while the other green bags got lost.  On the picture is me and Andrei when he was still a baby, and that  cabinet is older than me.

The one with circles is my Mum’s, it was a gift from her good friend. I bought the floral one, the black one is from my previous boss.

From Pan De Manila, worth P5.00 if you have bought P200.00 worth of bread.

From Avon

Green grocery bags.

Save a bag, save the world.I think this is their 1st design/version of eco-friendly bags.

This is their 2nd version (I think)

Their latest design, I choose to reUSE.

from YRYS, one of my favorite clothing brand.

If these were invented long time ago, we wouldn’t have to really use plastics.
