Boy in a Box!

We just said goodbye to most of our furniture– we sold them away and so now you can imagine how messy our house is with all books, clothes and toys to be sorted out. We have to carefully plan what things we are bringing home, what to give away and what to sell. I don’t think moving out is fun! Do you?

Well, hoping to lessen the stress, our boy hopped into the (balikbayan) box which was delivered to our house last night. We are to fill this box  and the company’s coming back for it in three weeks.   I am really grateful for these services otherwise we have to bring our heavy stuff like books, musical instruments and the kids’ beddings with us on our flight!

Roi is all smiles– he is ready to be delivered to the Philippines!  Ok, enough of the fun.  Let’s get back to packing.  Ugh.

Trip to Pattaya

Pattaya is a city in Thailand that is known for its beaches and tourist attractions.  Our family along with friends went there for a short holiday.  It was such an enjoyable time!

Ria and Roi enjoying the beach


Our time at Silverlake was very relaxing!


In our ride-- touring around the grape plantation was fun!


Those flowers were simply beautiful!


Roi trying to reach out and pick some grapes!

We were with another family and our kids’ teacher, but it still was a fun family time!  Click here for more of our beach photos!

Another trip to the park

What I like about living in Bangkok is that  despite the fact that it is a bustling city, you can always have a “down” time in parks.  There is this park that is about 10 minute-drive from our place– we always pass by it when we ride the taxi but we never really checked it out, not until today.

Time at the park would always be inexpensive, and the fun is guaranteed!

The park has this river, which is very calm and serene.  It’s very beautiful in late afternoons!

People come to this park to jog and exercise.  We should come here regularly to walk around.  I managed to take a photo of these people standing straight in reverence to the Thai national anthem.  :)

The highlight of our trip was the feeding of fishes.  The kids enjoyed it a lot!  We taught the kids how to buy fish food in Thai and they managed to say “ahaan plaa” (fish food).  Yay!  Great job, kids!

The kids enjoyed the playground!

I took time to enjoy the flowers..  It was  getting dark so we had to go.

Ria took  a photo of Joey holding hands while walking.  I am so blessed to be married to a man who, after  10 years of marriage still take pleasure in holding my hands. Hehe. 😉

Awww, sweet kids… {Ate} Ria loves to kiss her baby brother!
