Chuchi the Jumping Machine

My adorable niece has discovered the joy of jumping.  :)

This was taken during our Holy Week vacation in Baguio, which was also in time for Kai’s first birthday celebration.  While waiting for the rain to subside, Chuchi saw this trampoline in the middle of the mall.  Bianca was so sweet to accompany her inside.  It was her piece of heaven for 10 good minutes.

Baguio photos coming soon!


And then the stork came…

I have heard quite a handful of “how you were born” stories.  Most of them are far from what really goes on.  Admittedly, though the process is actually messy, the results are pretty damn fine.

Especially when they come with a handful of tulle and colors and ribbons.

I am quite amazed at how creative photographers and mothers can be showcasing the beauty of their subjects and children respectively.  I hope when my time comes, I’ll be just as creative as them.

Happy thoughts! :)

We jetted off to Coron!

(Please note that all of the photos for the next few posts are taken by me and my brother Ted.  Anyone who would like to use these photos, please shoot an email to let us know where you’ll be using them.  Courtesy please.  Thanks! *grin*)

I booked us five a flight to Busuanga when Philippine Airlines had this 70% off promo in celebration of their anniversary.  It was March and it was cheap and I chose to jet off with my family — all five of us — for four days!  I know right!

I do not remember the last time we ever went a trip on our own.  So come morning of July 14, after attending the early morning mass, we had Tito Romy bring us to the airport and we loaded all our bags (one for each, attempting to travel light) and prepared for Coron.

*cue music here*

We all forgot to get the DSLR ready, so while waiting for the check in counter to open (because we came in early), Tatay and the brothers started assembling it. Nuninuninu...

ANYONE AT ALL: Make a wild guess where this lady came from. Hahahahahahahahahaha.

Tatay assigned himself as the DSLR guy for the entire trip. He will then proceed to keep bugging me about a polarizer that he was not able to advice me to get before the trip. That's my old man right there!

Here’s the challenge. Are you ready?

A few days ago, a friend of mine presented a challenge.  To be frank, I really did try to comply, but I missed Day 3 last night.  I realized, I won’t be able to do it, until I announce it and make it official.

So here’s the challenge posed by a really good friend:

Do you think I can do it?  I’m starting to doubt it, but hey.  I’m up for the challenge.

I just restarted and made visible that site counter on the upper right corner of this blog.  To make this blog more interactive and more fun to visit, wait for 10,000 hit.  Better yet, make it reach 10,000 and see what I have in store for you. :)

So there.  Here I go.  The 30-day blogging challenge starts now. :)
