First Family Vacay Abroad

So, its been a crazy two years since I last posted.. Multitasking is my life now. So putting things I've been wanting to blog about all the time, has been put on hold!
Surprisingly, I am able to do so this very moment, and this major life event has to be recorded in the blog. I'll get right to it. :)
My husband and I always love to travel. But now that we have a family, as much as possible we have to travel together. I would love for the kids to enjoy riding on airplanes and visiting the places we've been too. So just last May of 2016, we decided to treat the kids to a short trip abroad before the school started in June.
This was also a chance for us to bond with the kids for a few days without their trusted nannies.
One of the places husband and I love going back to is Hongkong! We live in the Philippines so Hongkong is perfect! Not only is it a short plane ride, Hongkong is a city that we are very familiar with and its just a great place to be in! :)
So here you go! The pictures relive the sequence of events that happened.
Here we are on board the airplane. Not really the first time for the kids but first time without their nannies. :) They were so well behaved, it was so hard to believe!
Touchdown Hongkong airport!
Enjoying the height! Our room is on the 128th floor of the hotel! This is the Ritz Carlton. The service is impeccable and it's consideration for children is impressive! A bit on the pricey side but well worth it! I think this was more of the highlight for the kids than the theme parks. Lol!
Our awesome breakfast view everyday for 4 days. :)
And off we go to Hongkong Disneyland! :)
Daughter was old enough and tall enough for this ride with papa.
This was the kids other favorite ride besides the Evil Dr. Zurg ride which which was the best one for me, but no one was able to get a picture. We were just all so busy!
This crazy bunch is off to the next adventure.. Ocean Park!
This is probably how it feels like under the blue..
Look! more fish.
So ends our short but fun trip to the Ocean Park. The coming and going of rain didn't quite help.
This was my favorite moment of all-- room service! It was our last night and we decided to eat in. It's not easy for my kids to sit and eat, but in this one, they did! This made me so happy! :)
Our short vacay is now over. Here we are heading to the airport via a train ride which is conveniently located below our hotel. No more luggages because the train station checks that in for you depending which airline you're on. Too bad the kids missed the train ride. ;)
I know the pics don't do justice at all. I know we should have taken more but it was just nearly impossible. Kids this small is no easy walk in the park.
But I sure hope that the memories are in their hearts just as they are in mine.
Till the next travel! Hopefully Singapore you're next!

Camilo

It's a Holy Week and my baby love number 2 has decided to grace us with his presence! He came 3 weeks earlier as expected. At 36 weeks he is considered a little bit of a preemie but because he weighs 6.65 pounds, he is healthy and well! I just love him so much! Now my darling daughter Chandra is a big sister! We are now complete! 

Camilo and Mama

Camilo and Papa

Big sister Chandra..

.. And welcome to the world baby Camilo!

I just love my family!

Summer!

In spite of the preposterous heat, and almost due with baby love number 2, I love summers! Just give us the pool or the beach, my family and I will thrive in it!

Basking under the sun, the smell of sunscreen, hearing the joyous screams, splashes and laughter-- I am one happy mama! 

Have a great summer everyone!

And Baby Makes Four

Is my belly obvious in this pic? ;-)


Yes peeps, that is my new baby bump. Again, it's been awhile since my last inspiration to write. 

My daughter has already hit her toddler stage at 28 months, and "me-time" has become a little hard to squeeze in since. She literally is the master of time suckage. :-) There are good days.. And then... Sigh, let's put it this way, there are good days.. Ha! Moms out there would understand. Honestly, I am still trying to catch up on sleep. I can't even remember the last time i had a decent, deep sleep. But that is another story..

So going back to my belly, yup that's my 2nd one right there.. 32 weeks (8 months) with about 7 weeks left to go before the big day. Baby will be a summer baby this time. 
I am excited and pretty anxious at the same time! .. excited with the addition to our family, but anxious because I am wondering if I am able to manage a feisty yet needy toddler and an upcoming newborn?

I am staying positive that I will be able to wing it when the time comes. But in terms of sleep and some time to myself-- I shall say good bye temporarily to you. Maybe see you in a couple of years?..When the kids are much bigger.. :-)

A Day At The Fun Farm

This post is two days late but last Sunday, my family and I spent a glorious Sunday morning of holistic, outdoorsy fun right here in the heart of Manila...
Yes folks, in Manila it's hard to come by experiencing the farm life, and this gives you a taste of just that! Being born and raised in the province, this is nothing new to me. This is what happens everyday from where I come from. But since my baby hasn't had the pleasure of experiencing this natural moment, I decided to give her her first dosage of how it feels like to be in a real farm and see some of the many animals that live in it.
So here is my fearless daughter who tried just about everything she could possibly do at her tiny age of almost 20 months.
Excited as ever with Daddy-o...
We started the day with feeding the animals...
..First, the cutest not- so- little- bunnies..
then the Guinea Pigs..
Then it was horseback riding time with Papa...
...Mama and Uncle Leo joined too!...
Carabao carting came next. We were shown around the lush organic farm filled with vegetables and fruits
After that we went fishing in the pond..
Then we went boating in a bigger pond :)
Playing in the sandbox with slides and swings was another activity to do..
And did I tell you that even my nannies had a blast? :)
...And the finale, the zipline with Papa!...
Oh what a beautiful Sunday indeed! Thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Fun Farm You truly made it a fun-filled and memorable day with nature! It's enough to put a big and contented smile on my baby's face!
Till the next nature trip!
Blessings everyone!
