family vacation

ang saya ng naging bakasyon ko sa pinas and now it’s my family and nestle’s family’s turn to vacay here in cambodia and vietnam!

andrea, mommy joyce and aaron

last april 21 we flew from manila going to ho chi minh city, vietnam to have a couple of days vacation at my pap’s crib, we weren’t able to roam much and enjoy the city for we don’t have much time and to think that we haven’t gotten enough sleep! boohoo!!!

what we did is palengke tour at cho tan binh in the morning with mama, mami deng, inah and nica. mami deng enjoyed the fruits that’s sold and even bought a lot becoz of their gigantic sizes, hehe! they even enjoyed the food trip that we had. They tasted bun bo hue (which is one of my fave noodles), local taho na merong coconut milk, leche flan with coffee syrup, tra da, and banh mi 🙂 tapos bumili kami ng karpa for lunch and some veggies para terno sa ulam…ang saya ng naging palengke tour un nga lang sobrang init ng weather.

we went home afterwards and mama started to cook lunch while we and the kids played and do our own stuffs. later in the afternoon we went to maximark to buy some groceries for nico – kasi ba naman un mga immigration officers sa naia kinonfiscate un iba naming dala, eh most pa naman nung mga nakuha ay para kay nico kaya naman namili pa kami ng konti para naman masulit na din un gala namin. then we went to the city and bought our tickets going to phnom penh, cambodia. last trip na un kinuha namin para naman pagdating namin sa cambodia off na sila pong at masusundo na kami ng ayos. 6 hours din ang madugong byahe, kaya talagang nakakapagod. nagdinner din kami sa kfc ng magutom na ang mga bata tapos pumunta kami sa ben tanh market para mamili ng konting souvenirs…past 10 na kami ng makauwi sa bahay, lahat nga ng sakay ng taxi tulog dahil sa pagod, hehe!

ho chi minh city, vietnam with the whole family

on our way to cambodia which was very strenuous dahil sa dami ng dala namin, we tried all our efforts para mabuhat lahat un, even andrea and aaron helped pulling their trolley bags to lessen the weight that we have. nahihiya man ako sa mga kasama ko wla naman akong magawa kasi di ko sila matulungan ng husto gawa ng preggy ako 🙁 pero nagawa pa din namin, ang kapalit nga lang sakit ng katawan, tsk tsk

the kids are getting impatient on the way, di naman kasi sila sanay sa mahabang byahe, kung tutuusin mas mahaba pa ung byahe sa bus papuntang cambodia kesa dun sa eroplano papuntang vietnam. after 6 hrs we reached phnom penh and there nestle plus the whole gang welcomed us…syempre sila na ang nagbuhat ng lahat ng mga gamit namin no, 3 boxes lang naman un na malalaki plus 12 bags na malalaki din…kawawa din sila after kasi binuhat nila un mga gamit namin hanggang 4th floor kung san kami nakatira.

first breakfast sa cambodia

nagdinner kami tapos nag ayos ng konti then nagpahinga na kami kasi me pasok ako the next day. im happy na andito sila with us. mama and papa will follow but im not sure yet as to when they’ll get here, but i hope soon. syempre nag moments din kami ni sweet kasi 10 days kaming di nagkita. i seldom tell him how much i love him but that night i dont need to say anything more, i know deep inside of me that he’s the guy that im going to spend the rest of my life with…im just way too lucky to have him 🙂

    it’s sad na di ka namin kasama dito at nandyan lang kayo sa pinas ni kathe, kaya lang wla naman tayong magagawa kasi u need to pursue ur studies which is more important than going anywhere else at this point of time.

    wag kang mag alala,ipagsho-shopping ka na lang namin at ikakain ng madami 😛
