Today is also is extra special for me. Why? It is because it is my Mom’s birthday. She turned 71 years old today. Though the day just started here in America, it is night over in the Philippines. I am very happy that I got to hear my Mom’s voice and wish her happy birthday. I wish you the best of good health Mom. I love and missed you so very much Mom.

First day of summer and all I think is going to the beach

I missed going to the beach so very much. Growing up in the Philippines it only takes 10-15 minutes drive from a public vehicle and I can feel the waves and the salty water. Today is officially the first day of summer. It is perfect to share some old pictures from our trip to the Philippines almost two years ago.

This is my little girl early in the morning at the beach. The beach is quite. It is a perfect day to stroll at the beach. Looking at this picture, it makes me sad. I cannot believe that it has been almost two years since the last time I traveled to the Philippines.

I hope that my family can go to the beach this year. We have an in-ground pool and we can jump and cool off right away. I still love to go to the beach still. I want to feel the sand.

Thank you Bedtime bliss for these beautiful sleep mask sleeping indeed is blissful

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

It is almost two years since my last vacation to the Philippines with my little girl. I cannot believe it has been that long already. I missed my home town so very much and most of all my Mom, relatives and friends as well. Life is unfair sometimes that I have to travel half way around the world to visit them.

Flying international is very long hours. I have no choice but it is the only way I can see and spend time with my Mom in the Philippines. Jetlag is the worst enemy you can encounter when traveling international flights. You left in the morning in America and arrive in the Philippines at night. Time difference is crazy and you need to adjust to everything and that includes the weather as well.

The best way to have a pleasant flight is when you get enough sleep. I cannot sleep if I see any lightness. I sleep in totally darkness. My ears also hurt every time I am flying. I am thankful that bedtime bliss sent me this sleep mask with a carrying case and extra ear plugs.
