Pool Get Together

It was around 12 noon when we finally got checked into our bungalow. I was really tired and desperately needing a nap because in the evening we had invited my siblings and close friends for a swimming pool get together and dinner. Even though the bed was nice and the room was quite and cozy I was still having a hard time getting sleep because of the shipwreck incident. It kept flashing back in my mind and even now I still get scared when I think about it.

I did not have a chance to watch princess movies in my younger years because I grew up in a poor family. We did not have enough money for our food much less for DVDs. The Pocahontas that I watched was not the Walt Disney Pictures film. I thought it was, I should have read the fine print, regardless I … Read the rest

Fishing is Fun!

I didn’t know how much fun fishing was until I got here to the US. Even though I live near a big lake when I was still in the Philippines, I didn’t get a chance to go fishing there. My father wouldn’t let us go to the lake because we did not know how to swim.

A Birthday Celebration

I recently turned thirty five and yes, I am getting old. I have a lot of things to be thankful for.  I am grateful for all the things that I went through both positive and negative because they have made me who I am today.  I am looking forward to what the future has in store for me.  Hopefully, whatever it is that comes my way I will be able to deal and face with it with my head held high.
