Hawaii Trip (November 24 to December 2, 2015)

| December 17, 2015

  This list fulfills a number of things: 1. remind me what we did during our trip, 2. serve as a suggestion of things to do/eat/whatever if anyone else is planning a Hawaii vacation, and 3. satisfy my love for lists, (or listing, if you may). So here is the itinerary (possibly incomplete but the [...]

Trip to Texas

| November 23, 2014

Texas is huge. It gives the impression of vastness: wide highways that go on and on, flat lands that stretch endlessly, sprawling houses and structures that need not go up because they have the luxury of space to expand horizontally. Of course we were only in two cities for a few days so this generalization would [...]

4th of July Weekend Cuteness

| July 8, 2014

My 4th of July weekend was exploding with cuteness. I dare anyone to disagree. We had soooo much fuuuun! We played hide and seek, Go Fish, braided each other’s hair, sang “milk and cereal, cereal and milk” and “fact and opinion, opinion and fact” to the tune of “milk and cereal, cereal and milk,” played [...]

Our Trip to Bicol!

| December 23, 2013

One day, G saw a picture of the Mayon Volcano and asked when we would be going to see it. Although my Amah was from Bicol and we do still have family there, I had not been to the region for more than two or three times in my life. We needed to remedy that. [...]

Hong Kong Trip

| November 27, 2013

This trip was not our honeymoon, no matter how many people think it was. It was not. It just wasn’t. Now that we have that out of the way, yes, we enjoyed it, thank you very much. One of the things we like most about traveling is the excuse to eat eat eat, which we [...]
