Some people say she’s “Mini Me”… some are amazed when I introduced her as my daughter, cause they say were so much alike, like sisters, LOL!! And vise versa, her friends will tell her that we’re like twins. Well, I guess like mother, like daughter.
It was Saturday morning when I decided to tag along with my hubby as he is scheduled to play golf in Intramuros. I went not because I wanted to play golf but I wanted to bring the kids to Intramuros and fire up my passion for photography.
Yes, it was not only a walk back time with lessons in Philippine History but it was a photo shoot with my fave subjects … my children. Here are some of the shots I took. The photographer wannabe strikes again! Hope you enjoy.
The kids had a great time and of course, I was able to practice my photography skills once again. I am looking forward to a lot more trips like these. Thanks and I hope you enjoyed your weekend too.
Sunday Night we’re back at ETON Centris Walk for a meeting… another business opportunity (crossing fingers)
I have always wanted to see Centris at Night…. I am curious at how those constellations look and I was not disappointed. They’re lovely at night.
My son was glad to be my model.
Even doing the pose I asked him to…
This weekend was another busy one for me and I am just thankful to start the year with a lot of activities. I hope you all had fun this weekend.
This linky list is now closed.
It’s very rare that my husband initiates an in invitation to go to the mall especially on a weekend and it’s usually a spontaneous invite, that’s why when he does, we should grab the opportunity. Who wouldn’t? An opportunity to shop courtesy of his budget…LOL!
After mass last Sunday (even tough I know there’ll lots of people in the mall), we headed out to Podium to have the boy’s hair cut and shop. That’s my boy with his big smile after buying a gift for their Yaya (househelp).
Of course, my daughter was the one who chose the gift….
That’s hubby checking out some architectural books at NBS.
And since we’re already there, we decided to watch TRON. Interesting movie but not quite my type.
Note: Pixelbug Weekend will be on Holiday Break starting next week. We’ll get back to posting our weekend next year January 10, 2011. So from my family to yours, I would like to greet each and every one a blessed Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. I wish you enjoy the rest of the Holiday season. God bless!
One of the things that are keeping me busy as a bee the past few weeks, is the preparation my son’s family day in school. Being a parent representative for their section, there were lots of tasks to prepare for Saturday’s big event.
Family days are conducted to promote unity amongst each member of the family and the school through presentations and other fun activities in an atmosphere of Goodwill and Camaraderie.There were celebrity guests, magician, and a variety of performance showcasing the talents from the students. Below is a photo op with Christian Bautista, and my fellow parents.
Of course, a family day will not be complete without games. In which, I together with a co-parent hosted.
Whew! That’s the highlight of our weekend. I hope you and your family had a fabulous as well.
This Sunday marks the first Sunday of Advent for Roman Catholics. As I listened to the homily of the priest this Sunday’s mass, it reminded me the real meaning of Christmas. The priest reiterated that Advent is from the latin word “adventus” meaning coming or arrival. The first coming is what we commemorate every year, the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ and the second advent, is the one that we need to prepare for, is the anticipation of His return.
As we get busy with the Christmas season, buying Christmas presents, preparing for Christmas parties and all the merriment of the season. Let us not forget to focus on the real star of this season. That is a good reflection indeed.
As always, since it is almost December, I still have not completed my Christmas list. So, we went to the Noel Bazaar at the World Trade Center to check it out and buy some stuff. This is me and my daughter goofing around at the entrance after we were done shopping.
Sunday is the time for loot bag packing in preparation for my son’s family day. Look at my young man helping me out. That’s one of the tasks of being a parent representative, arduous but fulfilling.
This week was extremely busy for me (pardon me if I wasn’t able to leave any comments) but I was so happy that it ended with a high note…. Manny Pacquiao once again gave us a reason to be proud. Congratulations Congressman Pacquiao!
Anyway, the highlight of the weekend was a tree planting activity sponsored by Lotte, the makers of Koala’s March and Xylitol and in cooperation with ABS-CBN Foundation. The tree planting activity was held at the La Mesa Eco Park. My son’s school was invited to be part of this event and I gladly accompanied him. Whenever we get invited an activity like this, I always make it a point to join. This is because I want to raise awareness regarding the importance of saving the environment.
Lotte General Manager, Mr. Gerry Francia and his son headed the ceremonial tree planting activity while a representative from ABS-CBN Foundation taught us the technique on how successfully plant a tree. Lotte’s cuddly mascot was also there to witness the event.
Although the kids were not able to really plant a “real tree” because it is off-planting season, they were only allowed to plant a seedling.
Our boys were so excited to plant …
My boy busy putting in the soil …
Now, proud of his achievement.
I am so proud of my boy! We went home with all the dirt on our shoes and smelling like sweat… but it was all worth it.
I hope that you all had time to recharge this weekend.
I just love weekends especially if there’s an event worth celebrating and of course, birthdays should always be remembered. Today, my hubby’s niece, who happens to be my gad-daughter too, celebrated her 7th birthday. It was a simple family gathering for my hubby’s side of the family. An event like this is always a good excuse for them to bond.
A family get-together like this is also a chance for my kids to bond with their cousins. It just makes me happy to see them have a good time. Especially since the kids do not have cousins on my side of the family.
Regardless of how simple it is, birthdays should always be celebrated because it is a way of thanksgiving for the gift of a beautiful life.
To our dear Alyssa, Happy Birthday! I wish you happiness and content, and continue to be a sweet child and bring joy to your family. We love you!
