 If you are a friend from Facebook,  you may have seen my post about Dane leaving again to go back to Saudi Arabia and work. He was on vacation for 42 days and it was one of the happiest days of my life.

But just as things in this have to end, so was his vacation.  And so our journey for another year away has begun yet again. Good thing I'm not the only one, my friend's husband also had to leave again about a month before Dane left.

3 "Sabaw" Moments in Hong Kong

While I wait (with fingers and feet crossed) for my friend to try to retrieve my corrupt microSD card, let me share with you our sabaw moments when we were in Hong Kong. These experiences are both funny and embarrassing at the same time. :)

1. The Airport MTR
On most of our flights, local flights that is (since HK was our first int'l flight together), Dane and I are among the last people to leave the plane. Especially now that we have Nate, ayaw na namin makipagsiksikan at makipagbakbakan sa mga pasahero para lang makalabas. So we did the same when we arrived in Hong Kong International Airport.

Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex

Tagum City is the home of the Davao City Provincial Capitol and the Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex (formerly named Davao Sports Complex which was torn by the fire in 2003). Since the place is just about a few hours away from where our relatives live, I made sure that Nate gets to see the sports complex.

Most Common Mistakes When Caring for Your Classic Car

A classic car you take to shows requires tender loving care. You do not want to leave it out in the open or have it sitting in your garage unprotected. Invest in a car storage bubble so that contaminants never make contact with the surface. You also want to avoid the following mistakes when performing maintenance on such an expensive, delicate vehicle.

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

We were scheduled to visit the Ocean Park Adventure during our second day in Hong Kong. It was the first attraction on our itinerary. I booked the said theme park months ago via Klook and we were given instructions on where to wait for the bus that would take us to Ocean Park.

Since the meeting place was just about 15 minutes away from where we stay, I thought it would be easy to go there even without a mobile internet connection. I thought it would be nice to do it the traditional way - to ask around from people. I was so wrong.

My Miniso Mongkok, Erm, Haul (?)

Our trip to Hong Kong was great! It was too cold but we all had a great time. It was just the three of us there, unlike here at home where we live with other family members, so it's nice to be able to have that time when it's just us and no one else.

Kalanggaman Island: DIY Budget Trip + A Few Travel Tips

Just when I thought we won't make it to Palompon because of the typhoon in Leyte last December, God gave us a good weather last January 6 so our original plan to go visit Kalanggaman Island was realized!

The day we left we flew back to Manila from our 2-week stay at my hometown, was the also the same day Dane arrived from KSA! We reunited with Dane at NAIA terminal 3 in December 30, we ate lunch and checked in for our flight to Tacloban. Nate is a great boy, kinaya nya ang mga mahahaba at nakakapagod na biyahe! All he did was sleep on almost all flights! lol.

Dane's hometown is in Isabel, Leyte and since the place is just a few hours away from Kalanggaman Island, we didn't want to miss experiencing the place. I mean, who wouldn't, right? Sa pictures pa lang online, mapapa-wow kana kasi sa ganda ng Kalanggaman. So one early Saturday morning, we prepped to leave going to the splendid island.

Kalanggaman, in Bisaya, means a place with many birds (from the word langgam, which means bird in Bisaya). On the other hand, "langgam" in Filipino means ants, so if we say kalanggaman in Tagalog, it means a place with lots of ants, which is also true in this island, kasi andami ding langgam! 

The happy guy saying thanks for visiting his mama's blog. :)

This Blog is Done Hibernating :)

Hello, hello! :)

I am sad right now because Dane just left to KSA but I don't wanna dwell on the feeling of loneliness, hence, the blog. haha.

I am finally back! I have so many stories to tell, I can't wait to start writing about them soon! :)

I don't know if this blog has a frequent reader aside from me (lol) but if anyone noticed, I have been on and off blogging since late last year. For so many reasons, of course, but the #1 reason for it is my dearest Dane. He went home and I wanted to make the most out of his vacation. So if that means putting blogging aside to make more time for my husband, I would gladly do it.
