When relatives complimented my sisters-in-law and niece that they looked like dolls in their rented hanbok attire, hubby said I looked more like a matador. Oh well… May there be more comedy in this union than melodrama. Thank you for the 27 years! And cheers to many more! ♥️ via Tumblr

041119 He offered to drive me to my lunch meet-up with a lady friend. He then parked the vehicle and hailed a Grab car to take him to work. It was his idea to make it more convenient for me to go to my next destination for the day. Sweet, right? If only he left the car key with me… 🙄😂😜 #truestory#fotografiaunited#april112019_fu#forumsession#forumtraveller#fsaprilthrill11th#roadto27 via Tumblr

The lady on the right is my aunt I fondly call Mama Sol. She is 6 years younger than my Ma but is still very active in politics. She is the governor of our province in Mindanao and is currently running for congress. Posting a day late for #nationalsiblingsday… via Tumblr

032919 Today, Facebook said we’ve been friends for 9 years. Going back to 9 years ago, I probably created his FB account when he was 6 years old and added myself as his friend too. LOL. Most teens his age are all about social media, selfies and what-nots. This 15-year old son of ours is not even active on FB or IG. In fact, majority of his photos are mostly from tags by this oversharing parent. #forumsession#forumtraveller#fsmarching29friyay#pintoartmuseum#flashbackfriday#fbf via Tumblr

032419 This charming terrace overlooks the pool, cabanas and lush garden of pink bougainvilleas. The sitting area was exactly where I imagined to have our family photos taken during Ma’s 80th birthday last September. Sadly, we had to cancel our room reservation weeks before the occasion. The hotel emailed us that their pool was boarded up and was being renovated. Months later, we’ve been back here a few times for lunch. The place still looks quaint and postcard-pretty. It would be nice to revisit old plans… via Tumblr

Our little tribe 15 years ago… This particular shot was by my brother @junniearreza. It was taken in Cafe Adriatico Cebu, now long gone, and days before or after our youngest son’s christening. He was 2 months old here. Poring over my online photographs is my best-loved hobby, my catharsis. Thanks to Flickr, I have 70,000 photos or about 209 GB worth of used space. And I’m still adding. via Tumblr

032119 Soar high, Kyle! He may be the most timid among our three sons, but he is definitely the most creative. He draws, paints and plays the guitar.

He is more comfortable with analyzing numbers than reading prose. That he can easily wiggle himself out of any situation puzzles me, given that he is a man of few (Tagalog) words. Hehe.

Our middle son Kyle just got regularized at his first job in Manila. And in a few days, he is bound for Singapore to attend training courses together with his workmates. I couldn’t be more proud... and grateful. via Tumblr

Sharing an unedited behind-the-scene clip from two years ago... It was a breezy noon, but the sweltering heat from the sun was quite unbearable. We only took a few seconds of footage, to the relief of my companions I guess.

I love that the sons (behind the cam) and the hubby all accede to my vain bidding. Pagbigyan na. Ang arte kasi ng kasama nila. LOL.

Not all will feel the same way, but I get that satisfaction each time I put together a nice printed photobook or a travel video I could watch repeatedly.

Remembrance of our family adventures...

031819 Us right before lunch… Youngest son is now on summer break so it’s going to be happy chaos around the house from here on. His assigned chore is to sweep the floors daily, and be my gopher for other errands. As added activity, his Pa and I gave him the go to attend soccer practice too. Hehe… anything to wean him from gadgets… via Tumblr

Incredible how much they’ve matured in three years. Today, one could hardly tell who is the eldest, the middle and the youngest if one meets them for the first time. via Tumblr
