Showing posts with the label reunion

a short visit to my homeland

Image
I thought our trip last year as a family also deserved an entry here. It's been more than two years since I thought of traveling with husband and daughter so I can show them what my homeland looks like; but due to unavoidable circumstances, we kept putting off this trip to San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. It's quite ironic that it took us longer to carry out this travel plan when it will only take us a few hours to get there. Anyway, we finally made that happen in December of last year when I dragged them with me so I could attend our elementary batch reunion. It took us one year to plan for this reunion but only a few of us showed up... I'm not really the super sociable type of person but I'm not an introvert one, either. Thus, the idea of meeting up with former classmates in my elementary batch is also something that matters to me. Thus, there's nothing husband could do at that time but support me on this short trip, especially after he learned that

post-birthday treat, reunion and then some

Another reunion took place on a weekend. This time, I met up with some of my ex-workmates. Thanks to our friend Jenn who invited us over for her post-birthday treat, we again had the chance to catch up on each other. You see, we were all busy (work, family, lovelife, etc.) that we didn't even think about hanging out for old time's sake. Although there's Facebook, nothing beats having real conversations and seeing friends in the flesh. To be honest, though, I do have apprehensions about going to reunions like this. Sure, I would love to see them but I knew friends would surely notice how I wasn't able to manage my weight well after entering the motherhood phase. And I was right. One friend didn't think twice about telling me how scared she would be if she had grown to my size after giving birth herself. Ouch! I thought that was a little on the offensive side but, anyway, I thought she only mean well and I was probably getting too sensitive. So, I just prete

the year that was

Obviously, I've been away from the blogging world for such a long time. :-) It was like I was away for a year (line inspired by Nestea Iced Tea commercial where the cutie guy said " last week was last year! ") that I didn't know what to write so I can gracefully welcome myself back. Anyway, there are no alibis explanations this time. Okay, I admit I was busy. Aside from attending to work and health concerns, we (hubby and I) made some decisions that involved our family life. All these things "and more" that I chose not to elaborate yet on this blog have kept me away from doing any blogging updates towards the end of the year. I thought next time it would be a good and polite idea to leave some sort of a " Hiatus " message so as not to keep all my blogging friends wondering about me. I agree I'm not really good at it but for the sake of New Year's resolution, let me make it up to you next time! Anyway, December wasn't so bad after

remembering my high school days

i was looking forward to go home with my husband to my native land San Carlos City, Negros Occidental (trivia: this november also, our humble city just celebrated our annual fiesta) to attend our high school alumni homecoming this coming december 13th. i was told about it months earlier, i thought i could come but i guess i have to put long hours of travel aside now that my tummy is getting bigger. i figured it would be a tiring and unpleasant journey for me since i feel like i have to give in to the call of nature most of the time. besides, we need to be extra careful about spending this time around in preparation for our little one. i really wish i could come and meet all my friends, teachers, classmates and schoolmates that i haven’t seen for ages. colegio de santa rita , my alma mater, i miss you. and thank you for bringing out the best in me. there’s nothing i can do but to reminisce about my good old high school days. this picture with my high school buddies really brings back
