Our California Trip


The California trip we had was planned for the kids. It was the best time to bring them there because they were already at the age to enjoy and have fun at the various theme parks. We stayed at a hotel that has amenities for kids to have fun and for the adults to relax too. It was a two bedroom condo hotel with living area, a kitchen and very close to a lot of shopping centers and restaurants. Planning ahead is the key to stress free trip. I made airline and hotel reservations months before the trip. I purchased electronic disneyland tickets to avoid the line at the park entrance and we even have our ponchos ready. I have checked the weather channel and rain welcomed us from the airport. I would not forget how the pouring rain got us all soaked in one of our trips. The rain made our planned trip for that day more fun.

This was my daughter’s first trip to see Mickey Mouse and all her favorite Disney characters. It was unforgettable for her. And, being with her two little cousins made her trip more enjoyable. The kids
want to do it again next time. I have no problems with that. There were still a lot of places we were not able to visit because of time constraints. We will see you next time again, Mickey and Minnie.

My Cousin Bee


I promised myself to blog her arrival. She is my cousin whom I have not seen in 20 years or so. I could not even remember when the last time I saw her. We lived in the same town but because I did not attend the same school with her (she is younger than I) and I was based in Manila before I moved here many many years ago. I am thankful for the social networking sites that keeps us connected whereever we are.

Tomorrow she is arriving for a visit. She already posted as her status as “off to new york.” Her plane is expected to land at JFK airport around four pm and would you believe I will not be able to see her until around 7pm. Hubby is picking her up because I cannot get off from work early on Mondays. I am just hoping the white chocolate delivery I am expecting tomorrow would come on time before I leave work. I ordered them especially for her. White chocolates are her favorite.

My cousin is staying with us for 20 days. We have another cousin who lives in Queens so maybe we can get together while she is here. Our first weekend is to go around Washington, DC for Easter.
