Back on Board, and a Quick Weekend Recap.

Just got back from an awesome out-of-the-blue, out-of-town weekend with my sibs! I was fervently hoping there'd be wifi at the places we were going, but alas! Even the resort hotel we stayed at didn't have internet connection.

So pardon my excommunication for the past three days. I'll try to catch up on my blog roll, plus your comments, blog posts, tweets and wall posts. I'm looking forward to a busy week ahead, since the little man will be starting with his School Readiness Program. (That's tomorrow at 8 freaking 30 in the morning, good luck to my insomnia and good bye to my Kdrama marathons!!!)

Anyway, here are some snippets of the weekend that was. Full posts and more photos coming soon! :)

At The Aristocrat.

Memorial shadows.

St. John the Baptist Church.

Tiptoeing for holy water.

Between the salt and pepper shaker. :)

Arabella's.

Fancy some footwear?

Al fresco at Kainan sa Balay.

Balay. Bacoor. Brandon.

Brushes galore!

Suesh Alabang Town Center. Finally!

Turning Japanese.
And now we're back to regular programming!

*Photos were captured using Finn, my point-and-shoot Fuji FinePix J150W. Photos number 3, 4, and 5 were tweaked using Picnik's HDR (#3), Fancy Focus (#4), and Black and White Focus (#5) modes.

Sharing with Scenic Sunday, Shadow Shot Sunday, Sunday SnapshotBlue Monday, Green Monday, MYM, Mom and Me Monday, Rednesday, Wednesday Whites, and Color Connection

What do kids do in a school readiness program? Hahaha We didn't have anything like that before. Oh my you went to Liliw!! hahaha I love that place because you get a mountainside full of shoes!! :D Plus, the food's great in Arabella's. Want to go to the Suesh store but it's sooo far away. I hope they have a store somewhere in Makati or Ortigas or QC :D

What a great weekend! Some of my very favorite weekends are the ones I spend with just my sisters. It's so freeing and relaxing!

We all need to take a break. It's nice that you had a good time.

I like your blues.

Happy Blue Monday.

Karen Dawkins said...

I knew there was a reason I complained when my mom only gave me brothers. I cannot imagine either of them enjoying shopping for shoes or brushes!!! GAH! Thankful that God blessed me with some amazing girlfriends :D

Great pics! I would love to buy some of those shoes and the brushes (although I wish they were artist brushes!). I read in your About that you are hooked on Korean dramas. A few years ago my teen (now 19) turned me on to Rooftop Room Cat - I love it! In fact, we bought the dvd's!

raya said...
