Sunday is family day

Sunday is one of the most important days of the family.  This is the day wherein we could spend more time with the family especially the kids.  Also the day where we could rest and relax from busy life at work.  To us, Sunday is family day.  During this day, we see to it that we spend quality time with the family.  We like to do things where we could bond and have fun.  One of the things that we do every Sunday is doing mini-concert in the living room.  Since we all love to sing, sing-a-long is the best bonding of the family.  With the help of the television, sound system, speakers, microphone and rca male to male the sing-a-long bonding made possible.  It is really fun to do stuffs that the family loves to do.  It is the treasure that we will keep forever in our hearts.

Remembering his death anniversary

Yesterday was the death anniversary of my younger brother.  He died when he was little.  We lost counts of how many years already since he died.  My father did not remember it either.  We offered a mass for him yesterday.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to visit him tomb because it was gone years ago.  It was more than a decade since the last time we visited him tomb.  He was buried in the province where we used to live before.  When we moved in the city, we planned to transfer him in the cemetery near my late mother.  However, when we went to the cemetery where he buried, his tomb was gone.  We search everywhere but we did not find it.

It is very sad that we did not able to find and transfer him.  Though his tomb is gone, we still remembers his special day and will always offers prayers for him.  During All Souls day, we light candles for him and offered prayers for him.  On his death anniversary, the family is offering a mass for him.  To show our love to him and telling him that wherever he is now, he will always be in our hearts forever.  May you rest in peace.

Waiting for the examination result

Last Monday was the final examination for the DOST (Department of Science and Technology) scholarship that my niece is taking.  She passed the first examination.  The result of the final examination will come out in two weeks.  We are praying that the niece pass because to be one of the DOST scholars has lots of privileged.  Whatever the outcome is, we are still proud of her.  We are not expecting anything at all because she did not study even if we always told her to study a little.  We are panicking and she is not.  How is that?LOL

Just like her aunt (my older sister), she believes in herself that she can answer the questioner well.  Studying would make her stressed.  She wants to enjoy than torturing herself.  Very difficult attitude I must say.  But on the case of my older sister, it is effective.  I really do hope that luck is on my niece’s side.  I asked her when she got home after the examination of how was it, she just answer me, “is it very difficult” but she is doing her best.  Hopefully we will get positive result after two weeks.  Good luck to my niece and we hope she will get the DOST scholarship!

Booked a place for the family bonding

I have mentioned in my other website about the family summer gate away.  After thorough deliberation (lol), we decided when to go and which beach we will go.  With the help of my dear sister, we finally decided.  Basing on the photos we have seen on the internet, and reading the comments from people who already went there, we thought that the place is worth to visit.  It is far from the beach we went last year, but we will be able to save some from the entrance fee.  The white sand is really beautiful in the pictures and we hope that what we seen on the pictures are the same in real.

The only problem is that it has 160 steps from the parking lot to the beach/resort, and father does not like it.  He is having difficulty in walking because of rheumatism.  We have consider his decision as well.  However, we beg for him to say yes.  We promise that we will help him.  After minutes of thinking the father finally say yes.  We already booked a room reservation next month.  We are so excited.  I am pretty sure that this year summer gate away would be fun and lots of memories to cherish and keep.
