Manila Update #5

On our way to Bantangas and Tagaytay, I never realized how much I missed these scenery...

Canada may have thousands of lakes, but they are not the same as our white sand beaches.

La Luz, Batangas

Canada may have thousands of pinetrees/evergreens, but it doesn't have any coconut trees and banana leaves... and Calgary is not as green as the Philippines!

And where in the world can you see a Volcano in the middle of a lake?

Taal Volcano

Ah yes. I miss the coconut trees and the banana trees. Hope you're having a lot of fun there. :)

I'm sure the kids enjoyed the sights. They'll never see those in Calgary :)

It's a stormy weekend. Be safe and warm :)

We also have a balikbayan in the house. My sister from New York. Except for the heavy rains, she's totally enjoying coming home for vacation. She's been to Boracay and Ilo-ilo and missed the Philippine beaches. She even enjoys Jolibee! Enjoy the rest of your vacation. :)

Enjoy your vacation, Jo!

Hi Iskoo,
Kung ma afford ko lang... yearly siguro ang uwi namin... pero once every 5 years is ok too, para sobrang ma miss muna namin ang pinas, mas enjoy din.

Hi Tani,
Buti na lang ang mga beach trips namin so far ay maaraw at di maulan...

Hi Junnie,
Ako tuloy tuloy, pero wala naman gustong lumabas sa mga friends ko pag baha na. Siguro kung nandito ka pa, lumabas pa din tayo yesterday despite the heavy downfall! At least parehas tayong nasa south.

Hi Bugsy,

Sayang, I didn't appreciate our beaches before. Ngayon, ang layo ko na sa dagat. Walang katulad pa rin ang pinas!

Thank you for sharing the pictures Jo.

Hi Raquel,
Don't worry, at least you get to come home a lot!
