It will be Mom’s Day before we’d even know it. Next to Christmas, it’s my second favorite celebration of the year. I love the songs they play in malls, and how moms are so honored in church services.
I always got flowers and got to watch kids’ presentations in our home church in the Philippines, so I am so looking forward to celebrating Mothers’ Day there. Mom’s Day is also celebrated here in Thailand, except that they do it in time for the Queen’s Birthday, so they changed the original date.
Here is my favorite Mom’s Day song by Steven Curtis Chapman:
I find that it’s a very fitting song to honor moms. I hope to give my mama a bouquet of flowers. If purple orchids are not available, I am sure she would love a bundle of roses!
We are all looking forward to our trip to the Philippines in two weeks. Right now I am making a list of the places we should go, and the friends to visit. Did I mention that I also have a list of food to eat? I am so excited!
This will not be a purely holiday trip, so we should manage our 5-week visit well. I have to put our house makeover on hold for now, because we have lots of things to take care of before we go.
For now our little house has this little sofa– the only one, but I hope to get a furniture set, hopefully with p kaufmann fabric. Sigh. I really want that furniture set that bad, but our budget does not allow us everytime. So again, I say to myself… “Save up, save up!”
Going on a cruise in Bangkok’s Chao Praya river with some friends was one of my unforgettable moments. I have always heard about this cruise, but in our almost three years here in Thailand, last night was our first ever cruise experience. It was fun being in another part of the city, and to enjoy Bangkok’s view at night.
What fascinated me was how creative they are with their metal building structures. I love it! Their designs are so unique—and those bridges look stunning, too. I will definitely tell friends who are planning to visit Bangkok about this experience. I would not mind being their tour guide, too! I love the food, the cool evening breeze and the music! It was definitely an ultimate Bangkok experience.
I have yet to upload the photos yet, though. Meantime, you can enjoy this photo I took on top of the Baiyoke Tower, Thailand’s tallest building. It was amazing to see great structures, the bustling city and those lights from up there!
