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....


....to 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
