Touching memories from the Philippines!

Yes! I know, I should had post these happenings earlier, but better late than never:) 
 I missed being with my loved ones in the Philippines.  Everytime I look at the pictures, I just want to grab my suitcase and visit them again. 

Anyway, I visited my second daughter Michelle and her family in my first week of stay in the Philippines. 

These are some of my delightful moments with my fifth granchild Ethan.

I went to school with him and swimming in the nearby swimming pool after.

This place is called Taguig where my son-in- law drove me where my eldest son works. Going to stay in my son's house for a few days.... bond with my other children, grandchildren and attend recognition and graduation days.

First " Recognition day was with Zyrish. She got three medals that day.

As a treat we went out to eat....

                 ..and played bowling.  It was really fun for the olds and the kids:)

The next day was Zimon and Candice Recognition day. Zimon got one and Candice three medals.

This time my daughter-in-law ordered food from  Jollibee. We celebrated the day at home.

Day after we went to a place called Mega mall because I was going to meet co-bloggers later that day.
Me and my sister ( also living in Norway) wanted to eat Philippine's cuisine so we had  chosen this Restaurant KKK to eat lunch.

So these are what we ordered! 

Then after eating with my family, time to meet my co-bloggers. I was very excited to meet them for the first time. We just get acquintanted through blogworld.

   So meet Pink Line, me, Joanne, Empi, Rix, Zaizai and Senyor Eskwater.  They are all so sweet...

                                        but the sweetest: Senyor and Yccos

We tried this Japanese Restaurant.  I forgot the name. I must say that although Sushi is a popular dish,  I loved Filipino foods better.
There were so may things to talk about like blogging, families, jobs, interests and PBO,  but I had to leave because my family waited for me. Hope to spend more time with them next time.  

Anyway, my granddaughter asked his father why my friends are all young people and not grandmas like me:)
My son told her that when I was young, I didn't experience going out with friends, so they should let me enjoy how to be young sometimes.

Saying goodbye with this picture. I bought this book from another co-blogger " JonDmur".
After reading the book, I gave it to my aunt who is not married yet. Maybe she will be inspired to be in love:) Just joking. She is already over 60 years old.

                                          By for now! JOY

God's boxes

                                                                      Borrowed from google
I have in my hands two boxes, 

Which God gave me to hold. 
He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black box, 
And all your joys in the gold." 

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes, 
Both my joys and sorrows I stored, 
But though the gold became heavier each day, 
The black was as light as before. 

With curiosity, I opened the black, 
I wanted to find out why, 
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole, 
Which my sorrows had fallen out by. 

I showed the hole to God, and mused, 
"I wonder where my sorrows could be!" 
He smiled a gentle smile and said, 
"My child, they're all here with me.." 

I asked God, why He gave me the boxes, 
Why the gold and the black with the hole? 
"My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings, 
The black is for you to let go." 

I received this story from Hazel Moon, a friend and it should be shared. So I hope it lightens your day too!

Yes, after raining  many days, finally it stopped. Still the sun won't shine, but me and my husband took this chance to take our small boat to the sea. 
I brought with me of course my camera to capture the the moment.

wild grass along the way

  On the other side,  you can see our small town.

seagull just floating

others are busy looking for fish


The best of all: the fishes that we catched with our fishing hook! 

 Some words to make you smile:

* Light travels faster than sound; this is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

* Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Have a smiling weekend friends!
