103017 It feels great to be 50! I’m extra blessed to be half a century old and deeply grateful for where I am, for who I’m with and for what I have. First order of the day, brunch before noon mass with my loves. http://ift.tt/2xyXC9e via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2hnZYSi

102617 RBF captured by my youngest son while we were waiting for our early dinner. I should take note that with age (and gravity 😂), the skin becomes slack, the lines are more pronounced and facial expression looks stern. Note to self: smile more often. ♥️ PS: Dinner was lovely btw.

102617 We recognized the elderly man in white who was seated having dinner next to our table. He smiled the moment he noticed we were looking at him. It was our cue that it was ok for us to go closer and take his hand and “mano” as a sign of respect. This was 4 years ago.

The Pope praised “his constant advocacy of dialogue and peace for all the people in the Philippines”. Today, we bid farewell to His Eminence Ricardo J. Vidal, Cardinal, Archbishop of Cebu. Earlier today a farewell procession was held prior to his burial in a mausoleum at the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. http://ift.tt/2h9i8XC via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2yRe7Rj

102517 Kouign-amann for the queens, because tomorrow is a holiday and today feels like a Friday. The meet-up at Tymad was so random that I only had an hour to shower, get dressed and drive through Banilad traffic at 830am. LOL. Hence my wet tresses 💁🏻. Anyway, I needed this to keep anxiety attacks at bay. Who needs #xanax when you have these queens to keep you laughing? http://ift.tt/2i3ctly via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2i2Lg2r

101717 For the second day, classes were suspended due to the nationwide transport strike. Our youngest son on school break was my tag along at the salon. The company was not for free though, because here we were for his burger and fries. http://ift.tt/2gr957j via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2x5FyTB

101617 We earned a free day today after classes were suspended due to the nationwide jeepney strike. And the best way to spend the extra day is coffee and snack time with extended family. ♥️ Pa and Ma came from their weekly free movie date while Aunt Michele (haha) just flew in from HK. http://ift.tt/2xI2w2T via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2gfBv0u

101317 During the high school assembly, students wore the native costume of their chosen country. For our son’s year level, they were to choose from Asia. And one of the requirements was for the students not to buy, but to make do instead with what they had at home.

He didn’t want his photo posted at first, but eventually allowed me to when he got a perfect score on his speech about India. 😊 http://ift.tt/2xCviXl via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2yjyZQS

100117 My sis was flying back to SG after a short weekend in Cebu, thus a fitting send off lunch was in order. This extended family sampled some Asian/SG hawker food at Ulli’s and promptly wiped out the pata tim, laksa, angus beef barbecue and karate chops. 🐷 http://ift.tt/2hEIfJe via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2xNBokI

093017 What would have been a drab rainy Saturday afternoon became more lively with my longtime friends, Dahlia and Ann. Lots of laughter and stories over coffee, avocado pie and mango cheesecake filled our 2.5 hours at the coffee shop. In these times of Viber, Messenger and text messages, I still prefer live conversations such as this. ♥️ http://ift.tt/2x5vQA7 via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2xFR77L
