Memphis Memories (Part IV) - Elvis is Alive!

...continuation

So here is Elvis' living room. It's the first thing you'll notice when you get inside the mansion. Why? Most probably because of the colorful glass designs.


To learn about the history of the room... we had to click #31


It was said that the family spent most of their mornings here, waiting for their mom to ready up their breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, off we go to the kitchen and dining area.

If you look closer, you'll see that most of the appliances and utensils are old ones. Most of them were actually used by the family. Here's the dining area.

Priscilla and Lisa Marie





Off we go to the second floor and the first thing you'll see is the bedroom of the parents of Elvis.


Those clothes/dresses belong to Elvis' mother. :)

Next stop.. is the bar/entertainment room. Of course every rock n' roll superstar should have one. It's sooo yellow!


Mama and Papa listening
What I love about this room is that the ceiling is made of mirrors!


We were told to transfer rooms again.. it was just across the bar/entertainment room. We ended up in the pool-table room. And what amazed me about this room is that the whole room was draped with cloth. Ceilings and walls included.

 
Grabe.. draped everything! Who else can pull that off????

To be continued...

CARPE DIEM!

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…

Suuuuuungka!

Who knows how to play Sungka?


What's Sungka you may be thinking? Well, let's allow good old Wiki to define it for us...

Congkak (pronounced [tʃoŋkaʔ]) is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called "Congklak" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces. On the island of Java, it is called "Dakon" and little red seeds are used as pieces. In the Philippines it is called "Sungka" and shells are used as pieces. Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count.
When we were in Boracay last April, this game was played during our free time. I love playing it! Especially if my opponent's Arvic because I pretty much win all the time. Haha! Kidding aside, I…

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. :)
