Off to the Philippines

We are off to the Philippines tomorrow. Can't wait! We've been looking forward to this trip. It's been exactly two years since we visited my family in the Philippines... Isabelle was only 3 months. Anyway, we will be flying straight to Tokyo and that's a 12-and-a-half hours flight. We have a short lay over at Narita Airport in Tokyo of about 3 hours. From Tokyo, we fly to Manila where we are expecting to meet my sister and her husband who flew in from Thailand. We will be in Manila for a whole day. On the following day, we fly to Davao City where we meet the rest of my family.

For this family, I spent a lot of time to prepare. There will be at least 4 major events that will take place during our entire stay. One, my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. Two, my sister's reenactment of marriage vows. Three, Women's conference where I was asked to speak at. Four, Pastors and Church leaders Evangelism conference where my P and I are going to be speaking at. The rest of our days will surely be spent on beaches, visiting mountain resorts, friends and classmates reunions, scrabble time with siblings and chit-chatting with family members.

It's 10:30 pm and we are all packed and ready to go. I had my favorite bubble bath and Izzy played a lot with Orgil. P was helping me pack up our stuff for the trip this afternoon and now, relaxing... talking to his mom... for almost an hour now.

I better go put our little one to bed. Signing off...
