We're Home...Finally!

My goodness gracious! What a relief. Just a note to let you know we made it home safely. How is everybody?
It has been 21 days since I posted on my blog and this is the first update since I was gone....wow that long? Anyhow, our trip to the Philippines was quite interesting. Greg, Akesha and I got SICK! We actually rushed Akesha to the hospital a week before we left the PI. She had a high fever and cough. A couple of days after, Greg and I got a flu. What a bummer! We suppose to do some extra curricular activities during our last week in the Philippines, but it seems like things do not always go as planned. I am glad we did not get sick during my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary.

I apologize to my friends and co-workers because we did not get a chance to get together. Sorry guys!

I would like to thank my parents for all their help with our accommodation (food, lodging, and transfer) and shopping spree. Salamat Mama and Papa!

I also would like to thank Mami Lu for helping me out on my kitchen blog. Thanks dearest for maintaining my Savour D' Flavour blog while I was gone. Thanks to Tsang Shy for keeping an eye of my main blog. Thanks to Manang Rose for sending the Soft Hugwear Neck Pillow, it really helps during our trip. And of course....to all my visitors, friends and readers...thank you guys for dropping by!

I miss you all. I am looking forward to visit your blog as soon as I get over with this freak'n jet lag and annoying cough.

Hello sistah... welcome back I missed your chicka hahhaa..Sad to hear you were all got sick while on vacation in PI... I guess, your immune system is not adapted with the Phils' climate na.

Take a rest, I can relate to the feeling of having jetlag..once you recovered, paspas na sad hahaha..
