Litratong Pinoy: #4 Hugis ay pahaba

This is the 1st time that this new blog of mine joined the Litratong Pinoy. Our theme for this week is rectangle shaped things. I was looking through my archives and saw these crayons that my niece Reign loves to use to color her drawings. She loves drawing so much since she was 2, it runs in the family i guess bec. his father is a visual artist.

(Ito ang unang beses ng blog kong ito sa Litratong Pinoy. Ang tema sa linggong ito ay hugis pahaba na bagay. Tumitingin ako sa mga naipon kong litrato at nakita ko itong mga krayola ng pamangkin ko na paborito nyang gamitin sa pagkukulay. mahilig syang mag drawing simula ng 2 tao palang sya, mana sa tatay nya na visual artist.)

May iba pa kong lahok sa isa kong blog, tignan nyo sana.

I'm going home !!

Oh my goodness, I am already going home tomorrow and my flight is before lunch 11:20 am at Qantas airlines. I am already ready to go home but will greatly miss the kids Braiden and Bianca and of course Micah, my sis Joy, bro inlaw Joe.

I had a great time here in Aussie land and it is sad that my 3 month vacation will end soon. See you in Pinas and i will have more blogging time there..

Packing Away

Started packing my luggage this afternoon and oh my goodness they are so heavy and I am just afraid that is over 20 kilos already. My friends Erma and Vicky gave some chocolates as gifts and they are just so heavy. I will definitely bringing them all bec. my family back in Pinas will love that.

i have my handcarry which I believe is already over 10 kilos and my back pack (this will not be weighed anyway) was also heavy. Wow too much stuff on my luggages. I can never travel too light you know.

I am just keeping my fingers crossed that Qantas airlines will permit my heavy bags..

Last shopping day

It's my last week here in OZ land and my sis and I went shopping for the last time at Mac Arthur square. We are actually looking for leather walking shoes of mom but it is really hard to find what she wanted. Anyway we still bought her a black one that is still soft to wear.

Sis JOY also bought nice winter clothes for her kids since some shops has discounts. I told her kids were spoiled but they deserve it anyway. The kids old clothes and toys will be sent to the Philippines anyway so that my other nephews and cousin's children can still use it.

Time is ticking

Oh my goodness... I have few more days to go and I will be going back home in Pinas.. it saddens me but i need to go home. i will miss my sister and her family, the food, the weather and just about anything. I hope this is not my last time to come here.

Other Blogger Friends

My Co-Digiscrappers

Were back !!

We stayed for 2 nights at the Intercontinental Hotel in Sydney, a 5 star hotel which is just about 2 minute walk to the Circular Quay and the Sydney opera house. It's my last weekend here so my very generous bro in law took us all for a great weekend at the city.

Micha and I stayed in one room, we have one bed each while my sis JOY and their 2 kids are on the other room. The view from our hotel room is amazing over looking the Sydney Harbour bridge a, Luna Park and some office buildings. Just across our room is the Sydney Museum of Art but we didn't go inside that. Just after arriving, we already had a walk along the Opera house.

We all enjoyed that weekend bec. we went to Taronga Zoo, it's also my 1st time to ride the cable car so this is memorable. We also went to the Sydney Royal Botanic gardens. It was a very relaxing weekend .. THANKS to my bro. in JOE who is so kind and generous.

: Keepin in touch

Almost all my relatives (father side)are already in the United States and they are actually American citizens now and have been settled there for good. Eventhough they have different nationality now they obviously did not forget their roots back home here in the Philippines. They will always be Filipino at hearts and in minds and that is what we are all proud of. They also not fail to call us every now and then using phone cards so that we can have more airtime talking about what is happening to us.

I'm a Domestic Diva

Actually just here in Australia that I can call myself a domestic Diva bec. I am doing almost all the household chores. I do the carpet vacuuming once a week, I also mop the floor downstairs sometimes 2x a week depending on how dirty it is.

The laundry is just easy, i just put it inside the washing machine and voila when it is finished I will just hang it outside their backyard to dry. I am not using the dryer when there is sun outside. Cleaning the dishes is not that hard either since my sis also have a dishwasher, the unloading and putting in the cupboard takes time to do so. I just do my own ironing since Joy iron their clothes on a weekly basis, hahaha just imagine her mountain load of clothes to be ironed it is just overwhelming.

Funny thing is that I never do all these things back home bec. we have a laundry woman but i do my own ironing which I hate most of the times lol.

2 Boxes are on the way

Sis and I finally finished filling the 2 boxes that we will be sending back home in Pinas. Sis got some old stuff too here that she doesn't need anymore but will be in use by my family in the Phils. so we put them in the box. There are also new toys, clothes and bottled spreads(peanut butter, hazelnut spread etc-) for everyone to enjoy.

Actually we packed them a bit late now and for sure it will take about 3 weeks of sea cargo shipping before it will arrive. I will be coming home soon in about 2 weeks time and I know my family back home wanted to see me now and of course all of my pasalubongs that my sis generously bought for them.

So for my family in Pinas watch out for me and the boxes hehe!!

The view is awesome so i got tons of pictures as souvenirs, my Australian vacation is about to end in 2 weeks time so i guess i have to savor the last days here. Watch out for more pics !!! Have a great day everyone!!
