When we went home to the Philippines last January, we went to hubby’s hometown– one of my favorite places in the world. Peace and quiet, fresh vegetables grown from their garden… there’s so much about farm life that bring good memories of my childhood.
One morning my brother in-law asked Roi if he would like to feed the chickens and the pigs. Roi has never done that before, so he eagerly said yes!
So, the mamarazzi followed our boy to the backyard, and into the pig pens.
Looks like he did a great job! Well done, little farm boy!

I am so happy that Ria is so much into puzzles– it’s something that I was not fond about as a kid because I lacked patience. I learned that puzzles are very good for children’s learning. It not only develops their cognitive skills but it greatly helps them learn important principles like patience and persistence. Last Christmas hubby gave Ria three puzzles, and one of them was a miniature Empire State Building. Ria was to put the tiny pieces together, and I admire her skill in doing that. It did not take time for the Empire State “building” to be standing proudly in a little corner of our house!
She carefully studied the “blueprint”
This does not make sense to me but she seem to understand everything she’s doing:)
Piece by piece… you’re doing great, Ria!
There! It’s all done!
I am so proud at how she did this in such a short time. It would have taken forever for me to do this myself! I could only wish that one day, we could really set foot on the Empire State in New York. This little thing made out of cardboard is but a simple reminder for us to keep dreaming! And oh yes, I am so proud of my girl for making this. I wonder if one day she would be interested to take an Engineering course someday?
Why not, right? I am sure she is going to do a brilliant job building real buildings!

Last March our friends celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. We were invited to celebrate the occasion at the Chocolate Ville. We heard so many good things about the place– and true enough, it was just beautiful. We went there at dusk, which was really perfect. The weather was great, the food was sumptuous and we had tons of fun!
A lighthouse!! Something I’ve always wanted to see in real life
A windmill? In Bangkok? Awesome!
At the lighthouse– the view was spectacular at this time of the night.

Share the love!

I have many more great photos of Chocolate Ville but I’d rather share them in my other blog. Looks like I am so back to blogging now… and I owe it to being a BPC host for this month! wink!
