Leaving on a Jetplane

I'm going on vacation for five weeks. It seems so long, doesn't it? Well considering I'm flying halfway around the world, I might as well make the most of it. The tickets doesn't come cheap either so I'm trying to get the most bang for my buck here. The last time I was back in the Philippines with my family was six years ago. That was the first time for dh and second time for my daughter. My immediate family lives in California so there is no reason to go back. This time, it will be for a special occasion. My parents are celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary so all relatives are going to be there. I'm sure one of my aunts will make a comment that I look like a whale. (Hmm, maybe I should've taken some diet pills.) In any case, I'll just have to grin and say " I'm healthy, happy and not divorced. Thank you!"


  1. Enjoy your vacation in pinas! please do update my blog URL when you have the chance. it's now http://www.kikamzpera.com/. thanks!

  2. Hi babette! have a great holiday!! Will you still be blogging from the Philippines?

    Btw, I have just received your souvenir gift today! I didn't expect it at all! I like the cap! Guess what? I've been looking around for a nice cap and your gift is just so timely! Thanks so much! Can I blog about it with a picture of your postcard message?

    I will be sending you my Malaysian souvenir but only after you return from your 5 weeks vacation! I can send it to that address in Dartmouth USA right?

    Meantime, enjoy your vacation! : )

  3. 5 weeks? Does this mean we won't hear from you until August?

  4. Hope you have a good time Mama Barbs. Oh that's for sure.
