Farewell Tita Cory

Our Icon for the Country's Unique democracy was put to rest yesterday at the Manila Memorial Park. She was the 11th President of the Republic of the Philippines, serving from 1986 to 1992. She was the first female president of any country in Asia. Her presidency saw the restoration of democratic institutions in the Philippines, through the enactment of a new constitution which limited the powers of a president.

I would estimate that millions of Filipinos lined the streets from the Manila Cathedral all the way to the Manila Memorial. It took the convoy roughly 9 hours to travel 23 kilometers. It was definitely something else.

This was today's paper
read the second page.

I guess its not just a few people in the Philippines who would want the incumbent president in there.

Happy MonthSarita!

Its Saritas 7th Month today. Boy o boy shes growing quite fast. If i could just put her on pause for just a bit, want to enjoy her right now at this age. My lil sis Pat got the idea from the Victoria Beckham Marc Jabos Ad. But we all know Sarita pulled it off so much better!

Labor Day Weekend

Went over to my Dad's house in Bulacan for the weekend. Nothing to do there but eat. and swim. and eat. and eat. But I guess thats how holidays are supposed to be spent right? Trina and baby Zen came with us. Zen is Saritas BFF! hahaha so much pressure for them to get along don't you think?!
For some reason I just love this photo.

Happy Easterita!

This years Easter Egg hunt was different. Instead of looking around for it you had to swim for it! hehe Sarita couldn't really go swim for it so we just let her have most of it! ha ha Enzo (my nephew) had to show off his swimming skills this time. Good thing he had some to begin with.

Enzo didnt like the idea that he had to give half of what he got to his cousin Javi. Look at him here trying to explain his side! hahaha priceless!

Went on a short trip to Macau and Hongkong with Trisia's family. It was my first time in Macau and I really enjoyed it! Great great food and really cool weather! But the ferry ride to Hongkong was a killer! That i did NOT enjoy. But I've always been prone to being sea sick.
We ate in this really really good Portuguese Restaurant in Macau called Fernando's. It was a 20 minute Taxi ride from the Venetian Macau. Hard part though since its outside the city is that you have to wait for a taxi to get back. Which isnt too frequent. They had roasted pork (lechon) which was a delight in every way you can imagine. I will definitely go back even just for that.
