Excited About Going Back In Manila???

I'm still on vacation mode right now yet I can't help but think about my little home back in Manila. As soon as I get back tomorrow afternoon, I'll be going straight to work in the evening. Besides work, there's an activity at Church that I have to attend to and of course do some house cleaning.

When I spoke with Jayson and Mark the other day about the band, I can't help but think about renewing my passion for music. It's funny because that small chat with my cousins made me look back at how I loved singing and playing the guitar. That's one of the reasons why I think about house cleaning because my guitar which is hanging for a while at my wall needed cleaning too. A good tuning and wiping of carnauba wax will make my guitar sound and look good once again for sure.

Now that makes me excited about going back in Manila..... NOT! LOL!

Having A Blast On 5-day Vacay

Explored the Farm on day 1, went swimming with the FamBam on Day 2, stayed at home and took a rest with the family on day 3, meeting up with bestfriend today - day 4. Pictures will be posted soon! :D

I'm having a blast in my 5-day vacation! Today is my last day of spending time with my family. Sigh... If I can only extend my vacation. Or if only I can stay here for good...

I'm thinking about the latter very soon... Hmmm. :D

Kuerdas Band In Koronadal City Tonight

Kuerdas Band, my former band, is having a gig at Koronadal City tonight. It's a 45-minute drive from home. I doubt if my boyfriend and I would still be able to watch them play on stage since we have to be in GenSan to see my bestfriend Czarina and her daughter Czij today. I hope we can go home early today and not feel exhausted. We might consider watching them on their gig this evening.

I haven't seen the band play for years already. Although they posted some of their videos online, it would be a different experience to watch them perform live on stage. Somehow, I also want to perform some songs with them on stage. My vacation would be perfect if that happens.

Two of my favorite cousins are part of the band - Mark and Jayson. I haven't really had an update of the band from them because we haven't really chatted that long when we were together. I don't know if they have new instruments like a majestic marimba at musicians friend. I have to see them to know if their music has truly upgraded. LOL!

I think we'll consider watching them tonight. I think we can make a few sacrifices just to make the most of our vacation! :)

Bound For GenSan With My Love

We woke up early today for an early flight. My boyfriend is just as excited as I am because we are both coming home-bound to GenSan. He's finally meeting the rest of my family and some relatives and friends. I just can't wait to show him my beautiful hometown.

We're not going home for vacation, to be quite honest. My mother is going to keep us busy on our 5-day stay. Yes, it's just 5 days. I hope, even though there are going to be a helluva things to do (i.e. building a fence on our small farm, checking out the land-area my mom bought, clean up the house/deforestation and more for sure! LOL!) we are going to have a good time with my family. I know it's going to be a great experience for my boyfriend (keeping my fingers crossed! haha!).

It's 6am now and we are both anxiously waiting for our flight. Boarding time is 6:25am. I'm not bored because I'm doing something else online right now. As for my Love, he's really excited to set foot in GenSan and he's now bored and hungry. LOL!

A Gadget Or An ATV For Brandon?

It's 14 days to go for my homecoming! I kept counting days, obviously. I really can't wait to be home with my family and with my favorite nephew in the world! I'm really excited.

I watched one of the videos my cousin posted in Facebook recently. Brandon and another nephew - the younger and smaller Xyle, were caught playing a game on an Android tablet. The owner of the gadget is Xyle so he's the one initially holding it and my nephew by his side, watching and he seems like he's teaching the little guy how to play the game. As the owner, Xyle kept asking Brandon not to disturb him but to no avail. Until Brandon got the tablet and said : "I'll borrow, you watch!". The little guy ended up crying for help. Sigh. My Brandon is such a bully. He destroyed his own tablet and now he takes over Xyle's tablet. Poor little fellow.

As my homecoming is fast approaching, I've been thinking about purchasing an Android tablet for Brandon. However, sometimes I don't feel like buying him one. Not because I didn't want to. I don't want him to get addicted with gadgets and not play real child games. As I was browsing the internet, I saw this ATVs for kids! ATVs are small four-wheeled unit. They are really cool vehicles that I'm sure my Brandon would love to have. Now I'm torn between purchasing the gadget or getting him a brand new ATV. LOL!

Anyway, I still have to weigh my options. It also will depend on my budget, that is. I hope I would be able to decide before I come home. 

I'll see you very soon, Brandon!
