I am Back

Wheeeeehh! It seems that this is my first blog post again.  I was not able to write and even visit my blogs for almost a month.  Last month has been a very busy month for me.   Isn't it obvious that I only have one post last May.  And its about the meet-ups of my father and my son.  Well, its also the reason that I was not able to be active in the blog sphere for quite a couple of  weeks.  My attention has been focused to my father and my son.  I was very happy because after almost 3 years, my papa was able to go home and take a couple of months staying here in the country.  And I want to have and make the most out of it.  From morning till evening, I am busy cooking and baking in the kitchen.  Because my father loves to eat especially porky and meaty dishes.  Because that what he was deprived to eat at Saudi Arabia.  I have been busy cooking and preparing all the foods that he craves to taste. 

Garren also loves the presence of his lolo.  Every afternoon, they would go to the supermarket and just roam around inside. A great bonding moment of  a grandfather and grandson.  But the joy would soon be over because less than a month from now, my father will go back to Saudi for work again.  And it will take another 3 years or more before they would see each other again personally.

But on the lighter side of it, I will have an ample time again in updating my blogs. Honestly. i really missed this stuff. Because writing and reading blogs are my "ME" time. I got to enjoyed and be inspired reading fellow blogger s posts.  In almost a month of not blogging, I felt that I've missed a lot from reading the beautiful stories of my online friends up to joining into different online contest.  Now that I am back, the first thing that I will do after writing this post is to visit all my favorite blog sites.  

Welcoming myself again to the blogging world....

Garren Meets GrandPa

My father has been working at Saudi Arabia for almost 2   decades now.  He started working from other country when I was 13 years old.  From that time, i could still remember the feeling of sadness every time there's an occasion to celebrate and he is not present. Only phone calls and letters from him makes me smile.  He needs to work there to give us a comfortable life plus the fact that he is sending me and my brother to a private school.  He can only go home here once every 2 years but since his job really needs him, the two years sometimes became 4 years.  For the times that I haven't see and be with him, there's no enough words that could every describe how I misses him.  His absence made me love him much more. Its not easy for him to be away from his family esp from his children.   But I perfectly understands him. 

When my Garren was born, he is not there but I still feel his presence through a not stop cellphone calls just asking my condition and Garren's health.  Though my son, was not his 1st grandson, he made us feel that the feeling is just the same as the first time.  He loves all his grandsons.  Though. we keep on telling him that he should resigned from work and stay here in the Philippines, but he refused because he wants to give to all his grandsons  the things that he were not able to give us before.  Garren was already familiar with his voice because he would call everyday and talk to my son. I couldn't wait for the time that they will meet each other personally.  But the long wait is over, because finally after 3 years, his boss allowed him to take a 2 months vacation here.  We picked him up at the airport with my mother, my son and my two nephews.  I could clearly remembered the big smile on his face when he first saw and carry my son.  And I'm also super happy that Garren gets acquainted to him very easily.  Garren keeps smiling and hugging my father.  Its really a good grandpa and grandson's moment.  Now, I am looking forward on their bonding moments while he is here in the Philippines.

KBEE Happy

Last March 2010, Garren won in the Best Themed Photo Category from Kid and Babies contest.  He is wearing a racer outfit for the theme "My Star Loves Sports".  His prizes are Printable 8R certificate, 500 worth of Jollibee Gift Certificate and one JolliNation doll.  I picked his prize this afternoon at Trinoma Mall.  My son loves Jollibee very much.  He keeps on smiling every time he plays and embraces the Jolli doll.

Late this afternoon,  I brought him to Jollibee Fast Food near our place. We spent part of the GC's he won and of course we brought along with him his Jolli Doll.

This may not be a very big winning but for me this is one of the best.  Because my son enjoyed the contest and the prizes very much.  Seeing his face with a big smile is priceless for me.

Thank you Kids and Babies for this award...more to come for my son.  And thank you also to Sis Hanna Chan for meeting up with me to give the prize.
