If You Are Traveling This Holiday Season

Happy December, everyone!  It’s Christmas time.  How are you preparing for the Holidays?  Are you traveling to see dear families?  We did three years ago.  We had a Christmas vacation to the Philippines in December 2012.  It was our first time to go together as a family and spend Christmas season with my family back home.  It was a very nice time because we had a great weather all throughout our three weeks vacation.  My parents, siblings, niece, and nephews were very happy to meet my darling K in person for the very first time.  And my sister-in-law, my brother’s wife, gave birth to a healthy baby girl on December 30th.  So we were able to see and meet her too before we flew back here in the US.


Though traveling with a toddler can be stressful and tiring, my dear husband and I managed to keep our calmness.  Our daughter began feeling uncomfortable when we landed in Manila.  I assumed it was because her sleep on the plane was disturbed – we landed at midnight – and we had to wake her up to get through security checks and stuff.  It was humid and sort of hot in the arrival area that moment because it was very crowded. After we got all our luggage and got on the taxi taking us to our hotel, my darling daughter started to settle down and feel okay.

Anyway, if you are traveling international this Christmas season, be prepared with flight delays and other unavoidable circumstances.  Keep your cool.

New Adventures And Goals In 2015

Happy New Year!  Another year is here.  New adventures and traveling experiences are ahead.  I hope and pray that 2015 will bring us nice things to encounter.  Blessings may overflow in our homes.  How was your New Year’s Eve celebration? Did you travel or just stayed home?  As for my household, we just stayed home like we always do every new year.  We didn’t have company this time because of the major repair done in our house. We didn’t do lots of fireworks, also.  We just lit up a few sparklers left over from the 4th of July.  We let our darling daughter do it because she loves fireworks.  It was super cold outside last night anyway.

Sparks.  Happy New Year!

Sparks. Happy New Year!

As per new goals and plans, I am hoping that all of our endeavors will come true and fulfilled with flying colors.

I have so many plans for this year include:

Vacation to my home country in the Fall

Apply for Naturalization

Accomplish the process of Land Title Transfer

Assist my sister with Job Hunting

Focus on teaching my daughter in preparation for school next year

Sell more on eBay

Save more for future travels and vacations

Hopefully, my husband and I will be able to handle and accomplish most of these goals.  I know he works very hard.  And my share on these is to keep my time precious because time flies by like an arrow.  And we can’t turn it back as soon as it passes.  Time is gold.  With God’s grace, I know we can manage and achieve all our goals.

How about you?  What are your goals this year?

Again, happy New Year.  Wishing you all the best.  Cheers!
