Happy 33rd birthday to you brother

Today is my youngest brother J’s birthday. He turns 33 years old. I want to greet him a “Happy birthday” brother J. I hope that you have a wonderful birthday. I wish you good health. Please take good care of your health. Please stay away from drinking too much. It is not good for you and your health.

This is our last picture taken while my daughter and I were in the Philippines at Raagas beach. This was July 15th of 2012. This is our last day in Cagayan de Oro City, my home town. I am not there in person but please have a piece of cake for me. Please enjoy your birthday. I love you even if you are a pain in the butt. Please extend my warmest regards to everybody.

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you have been to

There is no place in the world that I rather be now except in the Philippines particularly in my home town, Cagayan de Oro City. I left my heart in Cagayan de Oro City. There is no place like home.

GOD is so great that HE allowed me and my daughter to visit the Philippines. I am not really looking forward for a very long flight. I am thankful that despite of the delayed and canceled of our flights; we arrived safely back home to New York. I spent most of the time with my Mom who I did not see for six (6) long years. I did not visit beautiful tourist spots but I did spend my precious time with the most important person in my life which is my Mom. I am sorry to my friends that I did not spend more time with them. I hope that you forgive me. I will let the pictures describe it for you. Please forgive me for uploading many pictures.

I never forget the moment that I am looking down at my home town, Cagayan de Oro City, up in the air.

PhotobucketIt was such a big relief when our plane, Philippine Airlines, landed in Lumbia airport on the 29th day of June 2012.

PhotobucketMy Mom and my niece P stayed with us in our hotel room. We stayed at Country Village hotel in Carmen. I wanted to stay in my Mom’s house to save some money but my little girl will not allow me. She loves the pool at the hotel we stayed.

PhotobucketThere is two free complimentary breakfast in the hotel. I let my little girl and her cousin gets the free. My Mom and I choose our own breakfast food. I am very privileged to spend my Mom’s 69th birthday too.

PhotobucketMy two sisters flew from Cebu City to spend my niece 8th birthday at Opol Beach.

PhotobucketDuring the morning, I spent my time in my Mom’s house. My little girl met her cousins and meet new friends as well. I am having a hard time using my debit cards to use when we go out. What I do is?

PhotobucketI send my Mom some money and the two of us picked it up at a pawn shop. It works this way. I can use some cash.

PhotobucketWe eat most of the time at Jollibee Vamenta in Carmen with my Mom, my two nieces D and P. My little girl loves to eat pancake and spaghetti. I also enrolled her at a Jollibee Kids club.

PhotobucketWe went to Raagas beach. The water is blurry because it rained most of the night. My little girl loves the beach.

PhotobucketWe stayed in my Mom’s room just to talk and spent quality time together. This is use to be my room when I was a teenager.

I hope that you enjoy our pictures. They are not beautiful but I am happy that I spent most of our time with my Mom and my family. I am linking this entry to the 5th day of blog challenge. Today’s task is about a picture of somewhere you have been to.
