Roi’s Toys

For my non-Filipino friends, you must be familiar with having godparents.  Like any other culture, we carefully choose who who the godparents of our kids would be.  Since we are surrounded by beautiful people at church, we choose around 20 people for Ria (that’s a lot, I know! LOL!) — and just 6 people for Roi.

Before we came to Thailand (in 2009) we were teaching this beautiful Swiss-German couple our language.  We have developed this special bond with them, and they are among those people that we dearly miss.  Thanks to the advancements of technology, we still feel like we are not really that far from each other since we look at each other’s photos on facebook, we email, etc.

Anyways, when we got home to the Philippines, we enjoyed a special meal with them at Jollibee and guess what?  Ninong HJ and Ninang Beth gave Roi money for his toys! Yay!

The Wagners:  Hansjorg, Simeo, Johanna, Elisabeth and Joel

So!  Here are photos of the toys Roi chose for himself.  After what seemed to be like forever, he finally chose this Lego set.


Those little red cars are a complete collection from Shell! :)

With Ate Ria and Papa’s help, Roi was able to assemble his Lego.  It’s playtime!

Thank you so much Ninong HJ and Ninang Beth!  We miss you and please do come visit us in Thailand soon!


Welcome Teacher Belle!

So kids’ homeschooling officially starts next week and the kids excitedly welcomed  their teacher with this poster!


While waiting for our ride, the kids posed happily –they couldn’t wait to meet their Teacher Belle!



Ria and Roi played  Bingo while we set up their home schoolroom on the second floor.
This is actually our workplace, a foundation here in Thailand that teaches free English to less privileged kids, but Ria and Roi along with our team mates’ kids would get to use one  of the rooms.  Isn’t it great?  They will be enjoying these books as well!

Hubby the Superman!

Hubby and I were the Flintstones last week.  I also shared our “James Bond” photo for Chic in Black  here— and what do you know?  hubby could also be Superman! Whew!

Wow!hubby looks so macho, doesn’t he? Haha.. That little guy on his shoulders is our 5-year old Roi together with Papa on a rescue mission!  Now where was I at this time?  Oh, yeah of course… I took this photo! LOL.
