A Quick Trip To Delaware

June 2, 2007 - Hockessin, Delaware


I got few photos for me and my husband. Mostly, all of them are inside the Santos residence - our good family friend & brothers and sisters in Christ. These were all shots during Melissa's graduation party and her 18th birthday as well.The shots are all done inside their home in Hockessin, Delaware. I included all our shots together with our family and friends from our church. My first time to take a step on this state, but we are still hoping to find a good chance to get back there for another round of going around the places worth visiting.

A Trip to Farmington, PA


May 9-10, 2007 - Nemacolin Woodlands, Farmington, Pennsylvania

This has been an enjoying road trip going to Farmington, a 3-hour drive. The road going to the place is somewhat going to the countryside, but once you reach the place, you can really say it's worth the trip because of the hotel's location and architectural design. We were checked in at Chateau Lafayette, where in rooms are patterned from famous Ritz Paris in France with vaulted ceilings and crystal chandeliers. Bathtubs are designed likely for bigger people so that when you sit in there, you will be drowned! LOL!

Road Trip Photos: I think these are all parts of Sideling Hill. I find it very attractive :)










The photos below were taken on our way back home. Did you know that hubby had to do a U-turn just to stop by on this landmark so that we can take photos of the big deer? :) It turned out to be good shots for the deer, so I had my poses there as well. :)

No More Dry, Irritated Eyes!!!!

I have been always telling my husband to wear contact lenses. He would sometimes complain of irritated eyes and at times, I can also see his eyes becomes red. He has trouble seeing at a far distance so he wears eyeglasses most of the time. I suggested him to wear contact lenses, in that way, he does not have to "bug" me to help him find his eyeglasses because he could not recall where did he put it. Sometimes, we would end up getting late when he can't find them.
Acuvue Oasys seems to be worth recommending. Perfect for hubby's eyes, I suppose. This product utilizes hydraclear plus technology to help eyes stay moist and fresh, are tinted for easy handling and won't change the color of your eye. The purpose of the tint is designed to easily locate the lenses while soaked in the solution. The lenses also contain an inside-out "AV" indicator to help ensure proper insertion or application. Acuvue Oasys contacts (also known as Acuvue Oasis), is manufactured by johnson & Johnson and is a 100% highly recommended by many optometrists and opthalmologists. They as well supply all the major brands and types of contact lenses for prices of up to 70% below retail. Just imagine he savings you will get.

I-Glide Tour in Philly

April 13, 2007 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I enjoyed this tour very much although the weather was so called and chilly. Hubby was about to give up because of the cold weather, but we already paid for it, so we did it. At first, the tour started with a quick "rehearsal" on how to use the Segway Human Transporter. This is like a scooter, only that it has been added with more advanced features, and operates with the use of a radar. The movement depends upon your bodies moevements too, so it's not that complicated to ride on it. I can say,bicycle is much more difficult to handle than this.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Trip

April 9-13, 2007 - "Philly" Trip :)

April 9 - After checking in at our hotel and got settled, we went to see the famous Liberty Bell - the symbol of American freedom. It was just 5 minutes away from our hotel.




On July 8, 1776, the Liberty Bell chimed from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.


Historical buildings and statues are all around most of the area, so I did enjoy my walking as well as taking some shots...hubby was delighted to be my photographer for a little while, so it was great!


April 12 - Ride The Ducks Tour and our visit to King Tut Museum

Although the weather was cold and sharply chilly, we went for the ride the ducks tour. We were not able to go and visit the Independence Hall since they ran out of tickets despite of attempting to go there twice to get some tickets. So, down we go for a quiet splash along the coast of Delaware River. I didn't appreciate much of the scene because perhaps due to the cold season. It was only some couple of ducks swimming on the river that I saw but still wasn't able to take photos because windows are covered with a thick plastic. Anyway, it wasn't a badi idea after all because part of the tour was also a mobile tour around the Philly area seeing the historical buildings and landmarks.



Doing the duck whistle! :)

Sad Family Reunion in Austin, Texas

That was March 29, 2007 when my husband received an email from his cousin Tanya in Austin confirming him that his uncle Jack had passed away. I had been looking forward to meeting uncle Jack and talk to him, but it was just sad that we have to go there to console the family of uncle Jack's passing away. This is the only direct family relatives that live in Texas. My hubby's relatives from his father side.

March 30-April 2, 2007

This was a sudden unexpected trip for us, and hubby was able to book a flight the next day.



It was heart-breaking to let see uncle's passing away but I admire aunt Pat's and her 2 kids for being so strong and positive minded. It should not be a thing to grieve upon because we know God is with him now.

Then, the family took us to a dinner after the interment at Oasis restaurant which by the way has a beautiful sunset view. Actually, they would ring a bell when the time for sunset is set, and people would be flocking on the viewing spot to take a photo.
I was able to get one! :)

Kamayan Restaurant

February 14, 2007 - Kamayan Restaurant, Makati - Valentine Dinner Date with friends

It was our last day in Manila and so we planned for a valentine date dinner with our new found firends, Josephine and Jeffrey. The Kamayan Restaurant was just 2 blocks away from our hotel, so we made a reservation there. The restaurant is cozy and food are home cooked like "lutong bahay" taste :). Tasty!...and they gave us a special bonus, a song from the "harana" group. That was worth cherishing!

Together with the "harana" group.

World Light Expo

February 13, 2007 - World Light Expo, Paranaque, Manila - Philippines

This was actually the grand opening night of the World Light Expo sponsored by Korea. Although it was not yet fully complete and still under further construction, the lights went awesome that night.






It's me and the lights!

Ayala Mall, Makati

February 3, 2007 - Ayala Mall, Makati, Philippines

We went malling with our nephew Enzo together with some more family members :). This was of course before the Ayala bombing that scares me everytime I remember our time malling inside that mall last year.





Enzo is a shy but sweet and soft spoken kid. He was still trying to familiarize new faces and he sees us as strangers, so he was still a little bit aloof to talk with. He loves french fries, and I love Burger King, so we went there for our snacks. :)


He loved his fries!...his favorite!

Fun at Enchanted Kingdom

January 31, 2007 - Our trip to Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa Laguna was very exciting for the kids. My husband and I thought of this as a special treat for them before we left back home. Unmindful of the long hours of trip (from makati to enchanted kingdom and back), everybody was bubbly and perky! :) ..and it's a nice feeling to have making our loved ones happy.


And who says she's not happy?? She really wanted to walk on her own.
(My cute niece, Martina Ysabelle)


What a whoopy ride!! Did you know that we are the only ones riding on this one? Nobody dared to or perhaps, no one was really interested in riding except us, hehe...

Wedding Invitations


When I saw this site, I just wished I will get married again (with the same person of course!). I kept browsing and I was captivated by the bride and groom Wedding Invitations with Blue Lilies and the Happy Couple Design. I always love the shades of blue or aqua accented with floral designs. Of course, for me it is always attractive to have the bride and groom embossed design on the front cover of the invite, and at the same time it looks elegant. That was the reason why my wedding motiff was powder blue. It does not hurt the eyes when seeing it and it's a cool color. I think calla lilies and roses are perfect combination in an aqua accented background. I mean, this design itself is perfect. A trifold is actually the best for a wedding invitation, particularly if the entourage is kinda large. But if this will be my wedding invitation, I would add some personalization by adding our actual photo on the bride and groom's face on the embossed design, plus a scented paper should be used in the inner side of it. Now, I think that would be considered unique. Hhmmmm, maybe we can use this on our golden wedding anniversary?? :)). That would be...gosh! I would be 90 years old?LOL!...who knows, if God will still allow me to be alive and kicking, why not? :). I bookmarked the site. You might want to visit it and see it for yourself.

Star City Fun Tour with Family! :)

January 30, 2007 - Since we had our nephew and niece with us, we thought of bringing them to Star City amusement park. Of course, this is not only limited mostly for kids but adults as well. It was lots of fun, fun and fun pa rin! :)

Star City is the home of the country’s first 360-degree Zyklon Loop, the two-tiered French Grand Carousel, the King of the Jungle (Ice Palace), the horrific Western Ghost Town, and the all-time favorite, the Wild River.

Nobody wanted to do the thrill rides, such as the Zyklon loop so I didn't take the risk, lol!

Me,playing...felt like a kid once again :)
