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!"
