One of the things the kids miss about being in the Philippines is the fun they get to be with cousins. Before we flew back to Manila then to Bangkok, we spent a few days in Davao where hubby and I got to bond with my brother and his family.
Here are some stolen photos I took of the kids inside National Bookstore, Lanang Premier. I love how the girls chatted– how they have grown to be fine young ladies! Jah and Roi, on the other hand, were lost in their little boy’s world.
I know they will be a lot taller and wiser when they will see each other again– and I am sure the catching up will be longer and the stories more fun!

Fishing at the fishpond is really one of the highlights of our time in the Philippines. It’s not something we get to do here in Bangkok so the kids really have a blast everytime.
Ria and Roi really miss their cousins back home. I wonder when will we see them again?
I have a bias: There is nothing as beautiful as the province where I am from: Bukidnon, South Philippines. Whether you are traveling from Davao or Cagayan de Oro, the lush greens and majestic mountains are simply breath-taking– and air is never any fresher. Bukidnons have a song which goes this way: ”Wherever I may roam.. the distant land to see, I long to go back soon… to sweet Bukidnon home.”
That is so true, especially when you have been away for so long. Anyways, we were able to set foot on our beautiful hometown again a month ago. Our stay was rather short, but so fun-filled. The kids had a blast with their cousins. I will be showing some cute photos of them together, making a series of posts since the photos are too many to be in just one post.
My papa drives his “toy” everyday. He is a very hardworking man who loves to toil the soil.
Looking forward to posting more photos of our farm kids… they miss Bukidnon so much– and I can’t blame them! I have fun memories of farm life myself as a kid. I don’t know when is the next time we will come back to our beautiful hometown. Meantime, we just enjoy looking at photos and the great memories that come along with them!
