Family summer outing

I have said in my other post about the family summer outing plans.  I am happy to say that we had our family outing last Sunday.  I have picked a resort and is not too far and budget friendly.  We had our summer outing at Bay Coronon Beach Resort at Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur.  It is really a nice place and has four swimming pools.  Two for the adults and two for the kids.   The kids are having fun and enjoying the water.  It is nice to have a break and having fun away from the busy city.  Not like the previous summer outing, we did not stay overnight because of our little angel, Lian and my father did not like the idea to stay overnight.

It was a memorable summer outing of the family, unfortunately, we are not complete.  The older brother and his wife, the younger brother and his wife and kids did not make it.  They have a earlier engagement that cannot be canceled that is why they did not come to our summer family outing.  I just shared some photos on social media to keep them updated.  Even if we are not complete, we still enjoyed the summer outing and we will treasure this moment.  I promised to go back there again with the family.  I will make sure that in our second time to go there, the family is complete so it will be more enjoyable and memorable.

If you are planning to have a family outing you should consider visiting Bay Coronon Beach Resort.  It is nice and budget friendly.

78th Birthday of my Aunt

Yesterday, we were invited at the 78th birthday of my aunt.  It is the first that she will be celebrating her birthday in an extravagant way.  She cried because she did not expect an extravagant celebration.  Actually, her kids wanted to surprise her and shows their love and care to her especially now that the aunt is forgetful.  She often forgets the name of her kids, her siblings and other relatives.  She can’t barely recognize and can’t see clearly because of diabetes.  She can recognize us once we speak.  My aunt shows the signs of Alzheimer’s disease.  It needs a lot of patience when you are talking to her.

Anyways, the celebration went well.  All invited person comes especially the one she requested, her younger sister.  We heard a never-ending thank you from her.  Told us that we made her very happy on her birthday.  I am so happy that she enjoyed her day.  She laughed a lot, dance and sing.  It remember my late mother seeing her.  Only if my mom stayed longer we would have celebrate her 69th birthday and mother’s day as well.  Again happy birthday to my aunt, I wish you good health and pray that God will give you more birthdays to celebrate.  Keep smiling and be happy always!  xoxo

Me, the wedding planner

Yes, you read it right.  My new profession now is a wedding planner, for my older brother’s wedding.haha!  I so loved my new profession and I am so excited to plan for the older brother’s wedding this July.  My brother called me and asked if I could help him in the preparation of his wedding.  My older sister will process their documents since the brother is busy and live far from us and I will do the listing on the things to buy, to do and need for their big day.  I started to do the listing on the things needed for their wedding.  I also put the tentative amount of each.  When I am done I will show is to my brother for him to approve or disapproved.

The brother wants a simple wedding.  If possible he do not want to spend more because his wife is two months pregnant.  He needs to save for the coming of their first born.  It would be a difficult job for me as their wedding planner (giggles) because I need to do find a store/shop that offers less.  However, this would be a challenging job for me.  Thank to my brother for this job because I learned from it and I gather lots of information regarding the wedding preparation.  I so loved this temporary job of mine.  Good luck to me and I hope I will served and satisfy my new client as wedding planner.  LOL!

Glad it is holiday

Today is May 1, and it only means the holiday in the country because we are observing/celebrating the Labor Day.  It is a long weekend to all workers.  Parents who are both working will have more time to spend with their family and kids.  It is bonding time I must say.  Early this morning my brother went to the beach after doing his exercise, and he saw people and families going to the beach.  We will pass going to the beach today because the heat of the sun is no joke.  It will surely be burned your skin.  We will still go swimming this month for our summer bonding and getaway when the sun is less angry.haha!

Anyways, I am glad that it is a holiday today.  I have more time to rest for I do not have to watch the kids because my sister and brother is here to watch their kids.  I grabbed this chance to update my blogs.  it has been days since the last updates of my blogs.  I am always lacking time to sit down and write because the kids took my time.  When the kids are sleeping, I grabbed the chance to sleep and rest.  I do not have the power to write at night because I dozed off after watching my favorite shows on television.  This afternoon, I will go to the mall with my sister and her two kids.  I hope to finish my updates today.
