Ormoc Bay

It’s a beautiful morning although it’s raining!  My husband and I woke up early today.  We’re not totally rested yet because of the jet lag effect, I  can say that we are feeling okay.

I was sipping a cup of coffee at the balcony on the sixth floor of the hotel, I saw a rainbow over the market place.  We are in a bay view room so we can see the pier, the bus terminal, and the sea.

Fishing early in the morning.

Oh, I am so glad to be back in Ormoc.  I missed this city.  A city with a rich history and is developing rapidly.

So as I was capturing photos of the bay this morning, I remembered when I was child my parents would take me and my younger sister to the city park on weekend evenings.  We will sit on the seawall and watch the ships docked at the pier.  The lights on the big ships were very pretty.  And passengers getting off the ship walk very fast to get a ride at the terminals.

I am very thankful to God that He blessed us with this opportunity to have a vacation and giving us a pleasant weather everyday.  We don’t have a big plan today.  We will rest and get our full energy back because in the next few days, our family will go visit my folks in my hometown.

Travel Preparation 3: Helpful Tips On Paying Your Bills While On Vacation

‘Did all the bills payment for December in advance and asked my dear cousin to mail them on the date I specified on the note before we left.

When going on a vacation for a long period of time, it is recommended to keep all the bills paid while you are away.

  • Check and list down when the bills come and take note of their due dates.  This is very important so you won’t overlook or miss any thing.
  • If you are like us who still use checks to pay bills, write them post-dated.  Check your funds to be sure you have enough money to cover the bills while you are away.  Or else, you will be charged for bounced checks and late payments.  That’s would be a very big hassle.
  • If you do not have the payment slips available for some bills, call the company and tell them about your upcoming trip.  Ask what is the right thing to do to pay your bills without the payment slip and where to send the payment.
  • On the other hand, if you are paying your bills online, you can set an auto payment from your online banking system.

In our situation, I asked my dear cousin to mail our bills payment for us.  You can also ask a trusted neighbor to do this favor for you too.
