Hello, Bangkok!

BANGKOK DIARIES

09.05.2014: S̄wạs̄dī

Hello, dolls!!!! 🙂 I am very very excited to share with you our trip to Thailand. I can’t believe that it has been 5 months already…and boy do I miss it! Last year, A and I were introduced to “family trips”. After our trip to Bangkok, I don’t think I can no longer say “my family and I with A” because A is now part of the family,and vice versa. Whether it be it with our family in the Philippines, or here in the US, we are all considered as one family now. So anyway, I am very happy that I am now sharing my first Bangkok post 🙂

To be in another country with A and our family is probably one of the best blessings that I received last year

One of the best trips ever!!! Especially because it was for the best Dad who turned 50 last year! 🙂

We had an early flight to Bangkok. Getting 8 people to wake up early and be ready before 7Am is not easy. So after dressing up, we went straight to the airport.

No breakfast for us!!! Everyone was excited and in a hurry because we did not want to miss our flight. We were so ready to have our first meal of the day after checking in our luggage. (more…)

02.23.2014: See you soon, MNL!

Hello dolls!!! 🙂 Want to hear something crazy? Today marks my first week here in the US. It feels like it was only yesterday when A picked me up from the airport. So much has happened since then — documents here and there , lunch/dinner dates, #ApartmentLife and…uhh my struggle with this crazy crazy weather. The snow is just making me realize how far away I am from home — away from the crazy traffic in EDSA , away from all the jejemons..away from home. What surprises me though is how I have not spent a night on the couch bawling my eyes out.

So my last weekend in MNL (for the first half of the year) was nothing but crazy. I tried to accomplish everything in 48 hours without compromising time for my family. I packed my stuff 3 hours before I had to leave for the airport, and I wouldn’t have done it without the help of my amazing Dad and sister. We arrived at NAIA with enough time for us to forget that I will be flying somewhere far…away from home.

I miss bullying her before we go to sleep.

I find it really helpful when I think about all the possibilities
and how I can make them all happen…in time.

“Here’s to all the places we went.

And here’s to all the places we’ll go.

And here’s to me,

whispering again and again

and again and again:

I LOVE YOU”

After 152 days, I was finally able to hug him again 🙂

To the best girlfriends ever..

And to my Mom..THANK YOU 🙂

We all didn’t have enough sleep, I was too excited that I only slept for an less than an hour.

Diane and Jho had class at 7AM and 9AM respectively.  We met at 3:30AM.

My Mom braved the road and made it on time for me to see him walk out that gate 🙂

It was one of the best feelings ever.

I wore my favorite Lauren Conrad dress.

The same dress I wore the last time we saw each other..so it will seem like it was only yesterday when we last gave each other a hug.

I got my airport scene.

——————–

First place we went to after we picked A up at the airport….JOLLIBEE! His favorite.

I like how this awesome man loves Jollibee so much! A Greek-Italian Chef from America who has nothing but good praises about Jollibee. After flying 8554 miles, all he wants for breakfast is…Jollibee! Haha

We had to wait for a couple of minutes in the parkin lot since Jollibee doesn’t open until 6AM.

And since we were the first customers, chicken joy (his ultimate favorite) was not available yet.

Cause 2 peach mango pies here in the Philippines is equivalent to 1 peach mango pie in the States! haha 🙂

His other favorite!!

—————

So the first hour of him being here in Manila felt like a dream. I couldn’t believe that he was beside me and not on a rectangular device. It was amazing to be able to touch him again 🙂

And now, as I relive every moment that we had during his 3 week visit here, I feel like it was only yesterday when all these happened.

I am blessed to have the most amazing man as my love 🙂

23 tomorrow! xx
