021619 Son no. 2 arrived from Manila today. Although son no. 1 is not in the photo, we are all complete for the weekend. The last time all five of us were in one place was during the Christmas holidays. #newnormal http://bit.ly/2SDb4qZ via Tumblr http://bit.ly/2V3tuOf

021419 The Nielson Tower, where Blackbird is, used to be the passenger terminal and the control tower of the airport on the 42 hectare land (now Makati central business district) owned by the Ayala family. The primary runway became Ayala Avenue and the secondary runway, Paseo de Roxas. Interesting historical tidbit from Wikipedia I learned about the place.

021319 Photo was taken on 021019 before flying back to Cebu. It was a packed weekend of being with the son and some friends, dining, and seeing the familiar as well as the places I haven’t been to. These are the only things I love about Manila. After having spent more than half of my life in Cebu with my family, I having taken root. Cebu is my home now and for the last 27 years. Bustling Manila, the beautiful place of my youth which I used to miss, is now just a fling, good only for a short period of enjoyment. http://bit.ly/2ByH2dD via Tumblr http://bit.ly/2DJ68qv

021119 That was a quick get-together with our middle son. Seeing new places, having good meals, hearing mass together and just enjoying each other’s presence surely made for a weekend well-spent. Looking forward to seeing him again really soon! 😘 http://bit.ly/2Glew3c via Tumblr http://bit.ly/2th3F1G

021019 People tell me to linger when I visit a place, to immerse myself and feel how it is to be a native of the locale. However, friends and family know me as one who will squeeze in as much sightseeing as I can get and not waste time on people-watching, shopping or walking aimlessly. To each his own I guess. With a free weekend after last Friday’s wedding, we went on a road trip to the south. From Alabang, we drove for about an hour to this exotic, Balinese-inspired garden resort. We had enough time to walk around and see the tastefully decorated and well-manicured grounds. The tropical foliage, colored walls with kamala designs and artisan crafted and carved wooden Buddha heads and daybeds reminded me of the movie Eat, Pray, Love. It sort of makes you want to meditate. Though not really Balinese, their buffet lunch spread was filling. I particularly loved the freshly made seafood pesto pasta from their pasta station. After a leisurely lunch, more walking and soaking in nature and the tranquility, we drove away feeling happy to have discovered Cintai Corito in Batangas. Namaste. http://bit.ly/2UOWoSn via Tumblr http://bit.ly/2E1TnIF
