More Reasons Why Baguio

Because come on, where else can you wear an outfit like this in our country on a really sunny day?😁

I've lived in Baguio City all my life, it's the only city I've ever lived in and although I've stayed in places like Bataan and Manila during my younger years for summers, Christmas seasons, and other holidays alternately, while growing up because my Mom and Dad separated when I was very little, Baguio has always been my home. I wouldn't trade it for any other beautiful place in the world.

Why?

There's so much to love about Baguio. The people, the places, the culture, the food and the climate among many things, are just a few of the things at the top of my head that I can think of.

Family ANEcestry

My family, from my maternal side, moved to Baguio City from Pangasinan back in the late 1930's. My great grandfather got a job to be an Engineer of the city and he decided this was where he wanted to settle down and raise his 4 children then. They had more children after that, like they had 8.

My Dad was sent here to Baguio to attend SLU for college. That's where he met my mom. My dad happened to be a basketball player and my mom was a cheerleader, they got together, had me and my sister and then... That's a story for another time.

Paypal to Paymaya In 5 Minutes!

Yes, you read that right. It only takes 5 minutes to transfer funds from Paypal to Paymaya as of May of 2017!😁

From Paypal to Paymaya, took only a minute!πŸ˜‰

I am in no way affiliated with Paymaya, I don't earn from spreading the news about them and they don't pay me to. Sure, once they invited me to a luncheon to introduce me to Paymaya, but that was it. No cash is involved, I endorse them for the simple reason that I am happy with how I've been treated as a patron of their services. Patron? Consumer? User? Well, whetever.😁

Also, it has to be said, I am a Globe user, and it doesn't look like I'm switching to Smart anytime soon, why? Because Smart's signal isn't good where we live.

Feeling High on Valentine's Day 2017


OA at Mt. Kalugong for Valentine's Day 2017

No, I didn't take drugs.πŸ˜‚ The only thing that gives me the feeling of being "high" is when "O" makes me feel so loved. I know he loves me, he's put up with me for close to 17 years now, but I love that he still makes an effort to make my heart skip a beat and after all these years he's still able to make me feel like a high schooler in love for the first time.😍

That Viral Jollibee Commercial: #Vow


#Vow #KwentongJollibeeValentineSeries
When you thought it was going to be a happy ending... #Expectation

I'm sure you've seen the newest Jollibee commercial. It's been going around Facebook, so I'm sure if you've not seen it, you'll see it soon enough. It's called Vow, by the way.

The one where it starts as any other love story starts, man 🀡 waits at the altar while he reminisces about good times as the bride πŸ‘° walks down the aisle looking oh so gorgeous in her gown. Man reminisces about how he first saw her in Jollibee and they happened to order the same thing, 2 piece Chicken Joy with Extra Rice and a drink upgraded to Pineapple juice, seriously though, who the hell drinks pineapple juice?😳 I mean, if you do, good for you!πŸ˜€

Anyway, he tells the tale of how he's always there for her, while a montage of past events show on screen as a flashback, he's there when her car breaks down, he's there all the time, you get the idea. And then just as she approaches the end of the altar, he steps aside to reveal the groom behind him.😱And we're all like 😭😭😭!

Bad Mom Moments

With my little jerks πŸ˜…

Never have children.πŸ˜…

Is what I answer when my friends ask me how it's like to be a Mom.πŸ˜‚ Hold up, before you judge me, hear me out.

Motherhood is not easy. It's not for everyone, which is why I never recommend it.😁 Before I was a mom, I was never fond of children, I liked babies, cause they're cute and pink and what's not to like? Everything about babies are cute, even when they poop or fart it's cute!πŸ˜‚ Children on the other hand are different. They're loud, whiny and demanding and they ask a lot of questions that can put you in an awkward position.😁

OA Meets Paymaya, A Uses It For Paypal

OA Meets Paymaya

Hello world!😁

One day I'm going to get tired of apologizing for not being able to update this blog more frequently. Or, I'd stop apologizing because I actually manage to update this blog once a week!😁 Let's see how it goes!😏

So, on to the point of this post. Paymaya. If you haven't heard of it, don't worry, you're not alone, it was new to me too.πŸ˜‰ I've heard of SmartMoney, and basically, Paymaya, is kind of like the latter. Except that it has different features.

Lucas and Filipino

Lucas is already in 3rd grade. I know, it seems like it was only yesterday when I gave birth to him, I cannot believe it's been 8 years! I thought for sure he won't have any blog worthy antics after he turned 4, boy was I wrong!πŸ˜‚ Turns out he'd have more blog worthy antics for me!πŸ˜‚ 

This was taken in July 2008.
Eww, I look constipated, what the hell was I trying to do? Make a face? Seriously. Geez!

This was taken July 2016.
So apparently, he still likes sticking his tongue out. And I'm still constipated. Hahaha!
This time it was about his inability to grasp Filipino or the Tagalog language.

Hong Kong-Macau Vacation Day 2 - Disneyland!

Going to the happiest place on Earth (in South East Asia)!😁

No Hong Kong vacation is complete without going to the happiest place on Earth (in South East Asia), Disneyland Hong Kong!πŸŽ†πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‘πŸŽ’πŸ˜Š

6am call time and it's raining cats and dogs!☔🐱🐢

Day 2 was spent in Disneyland Hong Kong!😊

No amount of bad weather was going to keep us from having fun!πŸ™…

The weather was very uncooperative, but we didn't care, we were in Hong Kong, and we were on our way to Disneyland!😊 Yay!πŸ™‹πŸ™Œ

We had breakfast at McDonald's a block away from our hostel, it was 6am in the morning, after that it was off to the MTR station and on our way to Disneyland Hong Kong.πŸŽ‰πŸ˜Š

It was raining!☔ We almost considered postponing our trip to Disneyland the next day because of how hard the rain was while we were about to walk to the MTR station going to Disneyland. It's a good thing my brother-in-law "L", checked the weather report and anticipated the rain, so he bought as all rain coats from Ace weeks before our Hong Kong trip.😁 #boyscoutlaginghandaπŸ˜‚

Hong Kong-Macau Vacation Day 1


First time ever to ride a bus with the family, it took 12 hours from Baguio to Manila!πŸ˜“

So, our first trip abroad, yay! "O" and I haven't traveled a lot because we were too busy raising our family and doing our best to live a comfortable life, and I've read enough articles about traveling with babies and toddlers to know I will not enjoy it as much if I had a baby or a toddler in tow, so the urge to travel didn't real kick in back then.

Now that Lucas is 8 and Chakai is 14, we can finally travel and see the world as a family, little by little. :)

 Our first destination, Hong Kong-Macau.

Team OA's first trip abroad!😊
I've read that Hong Kong is a good first vacation abroad destination for a family, because it's not very far, the weather isn't much different from ours, except during their winter, and it's a good place to start to get a feel of vacationing abroad.

 This is our very first vacation abroad and it was with the entire #EmilioFallarme clan (almost, we're just missing O's eldest sister and her family because they couldn't join us this time), so to say that we were excited is an understatement, which is why I want to document every minute of our vacation so that when I'm old and senile I can just read this post and remember how amazing and awesome it all was.

Also, if it helps someone plan their trip, then that will make me happy too. :)

So anyway, we planned to explore Hong Kong and Macau in only 3 nights and 4 days, we knew it will probably won't be enough time, but it was all the time we had as "O" and his brothers had jobs to keep.
