Our little one turns two

27 Mar

A few days before our little one’s (LO) 2nd birthday, I found myself cramming and thinking how to celebrate it. Unlike her 1st birthday, I didn’t make any plans for it. Dining out is already a given (and, admittedly, it is more for us, the parents, than for her. But hey, it’s our birthday as well, we are celebrating our 2nd year as parents). I also felt that simply dining out wouldn’t suffice because we don’t even have either of our immediate families to join us. Continue reading

A beach trip

14 Jul

We commemorated our wedding anniversary with a very simple celebration… a sort of impromptu trip to the beach. Impromptu because everything was done at the last minute. If budget wasn’t an issue, I would have planned an activity or a vacation way ahead of time. But since it was, we didn’t have definite plans how to celebrate our 7th anniversary. Also, we weren’t sure if Eugene’s schedule would allow him to be away from work. He asked permission just a couple of days earlier and thankfully, he was allowed to take a leave.

Family trip: Dumaguete 2017

4 Jun

While we were unloading our luggages upon arriving in the airport, Eugene said that he left his backpack in GCF (where we came from). It contained his laptop which contained his sermon notes so without second thoughts, he went back. Continue reading

Pastors and wives retreat: David in the wilderness

21 Jan

We left the house at 6 AM because the car we used was under the coding scheme on Monday, the first day of the retreat, so we need to be out of the streets of Metro Manila by 7 AM. The retreat doesn’t start until noon so we had breakfast and hanged out first before going to CCT. It was so cold! It’s Baby Carissa’s 4th time to be in Tagaytay but our first time to take a picture with Taal Lake in the background.

It’s our nth time to attend the GCF satellite-wide pastors and wives retreat but it was our first time with a baby. We had Pastor Carlos Peña as our speaker for the second time around (the first time was in 2014) and at the same venue in CCT Tagaytay. Continue reading

2016: My year in review

2 Jan

In between changing/washing/folding diapers, breastfeeding (on-demand), household chores, errands, pediatric appointments, impromptu dinner-hangouts, miscellaneous appointments, and Sunday Services, 2016 has been a whirlwind of weddings, fellowships, birthday celebrations, retreats, and parties.

Dumaguete-Cebu ministry/vacation/reunion

11 Apr

It was a very tight-scheduled trip. As usual, our reason for travelling is ministry (Eugene had invitations for speaking/preaching engagements) and we just fit in the vacation part in between. Still, I thank God because if it were not for such opportunities, we might not have found a reason to go home to hubby’s hometown eh it’s been four long years since I last have been to Dumaguete I miss it so badly.
