Time Travel Tuesday: Dec 2008, HK Disneyland

It was just for a weekend. The boys still had school and the Christmas break was not for another 2 weeks if I remember right. But for a peso-pinching family like ours, that was the best time to go!  Disneyland Hongkong was new then. We were able to avail of Cebu Pacific's zero-fare promo. And our Asiamiles balance was enough to cover for our 2-room accommodation at Novotel. We only paid for another night at Disneyland plus meals and other related expenses. Hehe... sweet. Traveling with family is always a treat, especially if you don't have to break the bank for it. 👍

After several prototypes, a dress can now fit inside my handmade gift bag. :D

For today's lunch, we had tapa / egg / rice, chicken adobo / rice and glasses of lemongrass and calamansi juice plus bottled water... All for P180. 👍

Happy Monday! 🌈🌈

Memento is Back

Am back! Not that I left the weird worldwide web but that I miss the fun of photoblogging - without strings attached. I just felt that Facebook isn't cutting it for me any longer.

I want to interact but not limited to certain parameters and in return be used by a platform for their advertising and monetizing needs. Am done with that - for now.

Memento is back - and hopefully is here to stay. Visit me one of these days (one of the best things about a stand alone site, there's no pressure when and how you want to visit). Just remember - Junnie that's me or

Weekend's over...

The weekend just zipped by, it seems, but we had a lot of mini activities done.  Last Friday was the special mass for the death anniversary of my hubby's father.  After which, we were invited to an al fresco buffet dinner hosted by my generous BIL, T, at the poolside of the club.  The lovely dinner under the stars with my in-laws was the highlight of my day.  We all live for family moments like this, don't we?  Oh, the food was great too and worthy of mention...  No wonder there were a lot of member families that night.  

Saturday was the report card distribution at our youngest son's school.  After last quarter's failed Math periodical test that gave him an 81 grade in the card and cost him a slot in the honors list, our boy redeemed himself this time.   He got a third honor certificate for 2nd quarter, became the 8th in his section (38 students in his class) and the only boy on the roll.  Yay!  

Sunday morning was general cleaning time as we already heard anticipated mass the day prior.  By lunch, we were at my mother-in-law's place for potluck lunch.

Save for the headache over Globe's iPhone 6 lemon handset, the plan 1799 brouhaha and SIM activation issues where I spent hours on 211,  I say we still had a lovely weekend.   :)
