Wanderlusting Awaaaaaay

Kumareng Grace... This post is for YOU! :)

Wanderlust :
very strong or irresistible impulse to travel
I looooooooooove going on trips and most of the time (well especially when I'm stuck in the office), I often wonder if I'm meant to be elsewhere but here. This also explains why my blog is named that way "I am littlemisswanderlust". I strongly believe that there's a lot to see and discover and the world is and will forever be my playground. That's why I'm determined as hell to travel travel travel. :) Which brings me to...

My 3 Favorite Places:

Despite all my travel dreams... when I'm asked of my favorite vacations spots, it amuses me that I still end up choosing these 3.

First stop: Our house in Nueva Ecija!

Sure, it's all palayans (ricefields) and carabaos... BUT this place is home for me. Every time I feel stressed, lonely, down and even happy, I go home here. The phrase "there's no place like home" really suits me big time. And besides, it's always fiesta time everytime we go home. Ask my friends... :P Mama really cooks up or readies a feast!

Second stop: Baguio!

I have been going to Baguio around 5 times a year since I was a kid and I have to say that there's still a lot to see in Baguio. It's just sad that the city gets more and more polluted each year. People may find it weird when I say that my family prefer pools over beaches, cold weather over sunny ones, that's why Baguio is the default summer getaway place to go to for us. Maybe it's extra special too for me because most of our quick family tours were spent here. Lots and lots of memories were made in Baguio. ♥

Third Stop: HongKong (& Macau)!

My shopping haven! Should I elaborate more?!?!? Oh yes, for Macau, the foooooood! The Egg Tart. Enough said. =P

As for the other places I dream of going to. Hmmmmmm...

Paris! (no need to explain why.. it's every girl's dream destination)
Japan! (overwhelm me with technology please)
Bantayan Island! (a taste of paradise)
Oman! (I grew up here, it would be neat to be able to go back for a vacation)
Korea! (They say it's a pretty pretty place)
China! (I shall conquer the Great wall!)
Chicago! (I want to visit my sister)

This list will never end so I guess it's best to stop listing NOW. ;D

I'm out.

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

Ba-Bye Ate

Today was quite a sad day for our family. For a very close-knit family, goodbyes are really extra difficult to say . Especially if the one leaving will be miles and seas away.

My Ate (with her husband) left this morning for the US. They'll be starting their new life there. She already has work so I don't need to worry about that anyway, and I'm sure that she'll definitely do well. My parents were really sad... maybe it's the thought of being "away" from her. Tipong you have to hop on a plane pa just to be able to get to her. The whole family has US visa naman, we can go there anytime (as long as we have the money I guess :p)

Yes, I cried a lot as well... and I guess it's because of all the bilins I got from her. The one that stuck the most "Ikaw na bahala dito ha.. Alagaan mo sila Mama and Papa. Si Ivan ha... Wag mo silang pabayaan." My nephew on the other hand was a different story... he was eager to go home already when we got to NAIA. Haha!…
