Macau, here we come!

Traveling among Filipinos has been a common activity for quite sometime now - thanks to the promo fares offered by airlines. Filipinos can now travel to other places within the Philippines and to our neighboring countries in Asia to experience different cultures.

Earlier today, my friends and I booked a trip to Macau for August. This is the first time that I will be traveling that is why I am so excited (and so are my friends!). We are also planning to go to HK for a day and visit Disneyland, which made me more excited. :) 

We were originally planning to go to Bali, Indonesia for Carol's birthday on May (whose wish is to see Ketut from the book, and now a movie, Eat Pray Love) but the fares are way out of budget.

I first caught a glimpse of Macau from the Korean series Boys Over Flowers. I was awed by the Venetian-inspired places and wished to able visit them one day. I have heard only good things about Macau from friends who have had the chance to visit the place.  I hope we can make the best out of our time.

Well, I still have five months to plan my vacation in Macau. Just five more months and I'll see you, Macau!

Andrei's haircut

At last! After 3 months, my mom had the time to cut Andrei's hair. Dei has never been to any salon. All his haircuts were done by my mom. It usually takes around two hours for my mom to cut Dei's hair because he's always running around.

 I'm a bit scared to bring Dei to a salon or a barber shop because he might end up with a cut. My hubby was supposed to bring him to the barber shop before he left the country last January but the barber shops near our house were all full when they went there.

I'm lucky I have a patient mom who can put up with Andrei.

A bit of childhood

Guess what a friend gave me yesterday? A bag of Suan's Mint Wafer! This is one of my favorite candies when I was in grade school. These mint candies come in different color and slowly melts once you pop one in your mouth.

I used to buy a couple of packs from the school canteen or from the sari-sari stores. What I love about this candy is it is not too sweet and not too minty. Just the right taste.

I shared some with my officemates and they, too, were delighted. Although some are not familiar with it (obviously, they belong to the younger generation), they enjoyed the candy as well.

I thought the manufacturer of this candy ceased its operation already as I haven't seen this in any store or supermarket nowadays. Luckily my friend stumbled upon a store selling the candies while shopping in Greenhills. So, what are you waiting for? Go grab one for yourself and relive your childhood days.

Starting all over again

I have just started blogging all over again. I just wish this time I'd be able to keep this blog. Wish me luck!
