For lack of anything really interesting to post, I tried looking for materials from my memory card and these are what I found...




...Jerry and Jake in different angles. I'm sure pagbibigyan ako ni Jerry when I say na kahit saang anggulo tingnan, cute si Jake.

Picture-perfect...

The sky is clear. The sun's rays are peeking through the branches of the fire tree. It is comfortably warm, not too humid. The splashing sound of the jet d' eau drowns the chatter of people.

Some are just strolling. Some are sitting by the lagoon. I see a couple walking their tot on strollers. There are kids enjoying their cotton candies. Some youngsters are running around excitedly.

A few tables from us, is a group of teens sipping tall refreshing glasses of fruit juice. They are texting some friends, I suppose, as one thumbs her Nokia 6260. Behind me are two male teens lazing and probably just killing time.

Jerry and I are sitting here al fresco with individual cups of Americano, admiring the picture-perfect view around us, just chilling and taking it all in....

Yes...all for P30 a cup. Sweet, huh!


So where is this at? See pic below...



Jerry pored over their menu. The verdict - ahem, not too pricey.


We actually looked more excited than this. The waiter who took
our shot spent ages focusing the digicam before pressing the button.
Hence, our "bitin na bitin" facial expressions... Boo.



Another good thing about this new place - it's just across
the Ayala Mall. Heeh!

PEELING AWAY FROM LETHARGY

This summer break, Matt enrolled in basketball training at his school, while Kyle joined art classes at the club. This has been ongoing since 1st week of April so the kids have been busy with their respective activities lately. When the kids are busy with something, we are busy as well bringing them to and from their classes and working around their schedules.

It is a given that having them around the house allows us great quality time with each other. However, encouraging them to pursue an activity of their choice on their free time helps them to develop their talents and to socialize as well.

Needless to say, enrolling them in summer classes is also an effective way of peeling them away from the computer, playstation and tv, things that have gotten most kids these days really inactive to the point of lethargy.

In my younger days, we didn't have art classes, summer basketball trainings or other sport for that matter. Or if there were, our parents just didn't think my siblings and I needed to attend. We were always out biking, running, playing taguan (hide-and-seek), habulan (cops and robbers), tumba-lata, Chinese garter, luksong-tinik, patintero, Dr. Quack Quack, teacher-teacheran, bahay-bahayan, pitik-bulag and a host of other local games too many to mention.

Gee, back then, we never ran out of things to do!

HAPPY 13TH!

This Day I Married My Best Friend

This day I married my best friend
...the one I laugh with as we share life's wondrous zest,
as we find new enjoyments and experience all that's best.
...the one I live for because the world seems brighter
as our happy times are better and our burdens feel much lighter.
...the one I love with every fiber of my soul.
We used to feel vaguely incomplete, now together we are whole.

---unknown





Still going strong after 13 years!!!

Reconnecting / For Men Only / Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

RECONNECTING...

One of the things I do miss about work (other than the remuneration every 15th and 30th, haha!) is the friends I've gained over the years. I'm glad that being a stay-at-home-mom affords me to meet up with them on occasions when they are free or are in town.

Last Friday was one of those days I reconnected with friends and/or former colleagues. It was a last minute call but I was just glad we were able to spend some time together. It was good reminiscing about the good but-not-so-old days as well as talking about anything under the sun â?? literally, as we were having coffee al fresco at my favorite coffee shop.



FOR MEN ONLY

After missing Jerry for two weeks, the boys tried to catch up on their favorite rerun of My Wife and Kids on Disney Channel. Check out how engrossed they were they didnâ??t even notice me taking their pictureâ?¦



â?¦and look whoâ??s in control of the remoteâ?¦

HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW

Every month, Matt and Kyle get their haircut in time for school inspection. However, since it is vacation time, we havenâ??t gotten around to scheduling the two for their monthly trim.

However, itâ??s a completely different story for Jake who has had his first cut days after his first birthday (as a matter of tradition). Now 1 month later, his head looks heavy with his semi-curly locks gone awry. I thought it best to have another DIY (do-it-yourself) session. And thatâ??s just what we did before sunset today â?? Jakeâ??s trim on the balcony.



And so there went the weekend...
