Litratong Pinoy: Gusto/ginusto (to like, to desire)

Gusto kong masubukan ang mag sailing... hindi ko na inasam na magkaroon ng sarili kong bangka, matikman ko lang sana, masaya na ako.

I really want to try sailing someday. I don't need to own one, just to try it would be enough to make me happy.

Wordless Wednesday


We just had a shift bid last month, and instead of working 2 days with 10 hour shift, I am now stuck with 3 days and an 8 hour shift. The good news is I have weekends off! So we get to really enjoy the summer weekends and not have to worry about work.

It is getting crazier at work. People are getting fired or suspended, and management is not even protecting it's own employees. :-( And worst, we are being used and treated like garbage. If not for the benefits, I would have left months ago.

I was on holiday for 3 weeks, and upon returning to work, so much have changed [again]! I am so affected by work lately that it is no longer "fun", and I hate the thought of going to work. We were being watch like criminals and our attention were being called for the tiniest things that don't really matter.

I'm hoping that I would be able to find a different, less stressful job by September. Right now, I just want to enjoy our short summer!


These pictures were taken by my 9-year old daughter with her Nintendo DSi camera... it's cool, isn't it?

My pictures, from the same place and time are posted here!

Wordless Wednesday: Water Buffalo or Giraffe?

Or how about a Zebra and at the same time a Water Buffalo?

Summer Fun!

We got so many things we wanted to do this summer... and yet so limited budget and time. Hmmmmm... We need to enjoy the summer without really spending a lot.

Our first trip was to West Edmonton Mall. Had a fun time playing mini-golf and bowling.

Later this afternoon, it's a trip to the park. It's BBQ time with my co-workers and their family.

The Dolphin Encounter

My son had a chance to swim with the Dolphins at Ocean Adventure in Subic Bay, Philippines. And he had an awesome time!

West Edmonton Mall

Yesterday, being Canada Day, we went on a road trip to Edmonton. It's about 2 hours and 45 minutes drive.

The highlight of our trip was getting aboard Santa Maria [pirate ship], playing mini-golf and bowling! In bowling, overall I got the highest score, followed by my son, then my husband and my daughter.

Summer activities!

We got the season pass for Calaway Park this summer. One day pass costs the same as the season pass, so we took advantage of the season pass. We plan to go today, but the rain forecast ruin my kids' excitement. Oh well, there will be more opportunity later on.

Yesterday, while at West Edmonton Mall, we decided to get the 3-month season pass too to all the parks at the mall - it includes the rides, waterpark, bowling and billiards, mini golf, deep sea derby and access to sea lion shows. It was really a good deal too. We just need to make the trip to Edmonton every chance we got! And this only means more road trip!
