Easter 2012 and Myles’ 5th Birthday

My last vacation was so fun that my mind is playing the memories in an almost infinite loop. I just can’t describe how happy I am so I’ll just have these pictures do it for me.

On Easter Sunday, we went to the beach.

Myles and Janie - Beach Lovers!
Janie loving the beach the most. At home, she would randomly say "Daddy ligo tayo beach."
Ate Mylyn(Sis-in-law), Ira, Kuya Melvin(Bro-in-law), Janie, Ian, Myles and Me.

We had an overnight stay in Davao to celebrate Myles Birthday. We went to Malagos Garden Resort, Philippine Eagle Center and People’s Park on the 1st day. The following day we went to SM, where we had our first family studio pic (pictures to follow) and the kids playing at Zoofari (their favorite playground).

At the hotel. Janie teaching me how to wear eyeglasses, the right way.
Then the goofy way.

Philippine Deer
Not sure if these monkeys are the food for the Philippine Eagles (previously called Philippine Monkey-Eating Eagles)
They're finally not scared of taking pictures with these statues.
Myles smiling. 2 years ago he wouldn't even dare go near these things. Now he climbs on them. Hehe.
Janie: Let's go!
Kids would really find these statues scary at first.
Myles blowing his first cake of the day. Janie tried to blow as well. Hehe.
At Zoofari.
Still swinging

Long Travels

I have always loved traveling to new places and even more when the journey is quite long. Probably because while growing up, I I’ve had many long travels and I have also gotten to enjoying it. What I like about it is that I have  a lot of time to think about so many things while looking at the fast-changing scenery outside the vehicle. It also allowed me to do some self-checks or review of what has transpired over the past year at school, which often times lead to pointing out the subjects that I need to work on harder next time.

Someday, I’ll travel again and by that time it would be with my family or just me and my wife.


Sea Trips

During my childhood years, me and my mom would always take the ship when traveling to Manila and Davao. I would always look forward to the trip because I can do several things I don’t normally do at land. The first thing that I look for once we get on board is to look for the arcade section. Then I would tour the ship while familiarizing myself where this particular shop or place I like or just important is located. I enjoy the sea breeze. What I love most of all to do is to make friends with our fellow passengers. I once made friends with a group of college students I think and they helped us carry our things when we disembarked in Manila. I got to know them because I watched them playing their gameboy.

Hopefully in the future I can have those trips with my wife and kids.
