It’s been a long time since I updated my blog here. As I only have my cellphone now and my tab used as cameras, I am not taking more pictures. This morning though, I was at the garden looking at some summer blooms and I can’t help but take these shots with my tab.
My two jackfruit trees are bearing fruits again. I counted, there were about twenty of them excluding the two young fruits I harvested earlier to cook in coconut cream. My family loves Guinataang Langka. That’s what we call it here.
My shrimp plants are blooming too. They are here everywhere in the garden. Even my sweet-scented Amazon Lilies are bearing flowers.
The morning sun is trying to show its face in these lovely shrimp plants. I wish I could just point my cellphone camera in the beauty of my small garden.

I’m impressed. He did it all on his own. First taste of having a job done well. He took a one-week Kiddy Summer Workshop at one of the branches of McDo. then he got this at the end of the training. Kids could be responsible too when you teach them well.

I can’t believe this….haha 🙂 It’s McDonald’s summer promo. One of the kiddie crew for five days starting today, two hours each day. They will be taught burger-making and sundae-making too, but for all we know, it would be more on playing than actually serving meals. He is growing…
Nissa took this shot two weeks ago. It’s Nate’s short, short hair cut for the summer days. I posted it as my profile photo and it earned a lot of comments and likes. It’s the first time since he was a year old that he has his hair trimmed this short. Nate is our little […]
Yesterday was another milestone in Nate’s life and in ours too, his family. It was a lovely celebration of Moving Up at the Manila Hotel, a two-hour program where they sang and danced. They didn’t have this honors awards but Josef got two awards, Best in Reading and best In Science. So proud of you […]
This is quite a late update. I have lots of photos of my grandson courtesy of Nissa but I don’t always seem to be able to blog about them. Nate’s grades during the third grading period were a great improvement from the second one. He is surely adjusting to school life. Yes, his grades have […]
I think it is not officially summer yet but two weeks ago Nissa’s family went on another swimming trip. Nate loves the water. We were supposed to go with them but we could not leave mom alone in the house. My eldest brother was not available. Nissa took some photos of their trip. I am […]

These flowers used to be permanent fixtures in my small garden. I had the lone shrub for years and it produces such lovely white flowers every year. Some months ago, the leaves slowly turned yellow then they dried up to brittle brown ones. This afternoon, my son and I decided to finally put it […]
It was one of those days when having fresh flowers in a vase would really perk you up. I wish I could also grow mums here but I think they need a colder climate than our hot, hot weather. Most flowers like these come from the cold clime of Baguio City up north.
A few years ago, I tried my hand at macro photography, just ordinary photos. I found these colorful Macopa growing in our yard and some Mangoes which my brother picked from our trees. Mangoes are in season now. They are best eaten ripe like this or you can also eat them green with a […]
I received this photo yesterday morning from a former classmate in high school. Sharing it with your for what it conveys. Good morning everyone. I wish you a bountiful and lovely Wednesday morning.
I have always been fascinated by the different colors of greens in our small garden. I sometimes make it a point to take some shot of them when they are at their best. It’s been a while though since I took photos, my camera is not working well. I rely on my camera phone and […]
One of the best places we visited in our road trips is Regina RICA in Tanay, Rizal. It is a place of prayer and worship and that 71-foot tall image of Mama Mary is one sure attraction of the place. I love going on road trips. One learns a lot of things when one visits […]
It’s been a while since I last posted something here. Been updating my main blog though Dreams and Escapes regularly now. You can see it at the right corner of this blog. I’ve been busy for a while and just forgot to update this site. Hopefully, by the time I am done with my free […]
