Got tons of great videos below of the whole family opening their gifts! Sorry took so long to get posted, my crappy 60kb/s of upload bandwidth I get from PLDT makes it hard to upload gigs of video to YouTube! First vid has Nizza, Nicole, and Madi opening their presents. For those that want to skip ahead, around 13 minutes or so you can see Madi going happy ape sh!t on her new present. 2nd vid has Lola ...Continue Reading → Share

Still my Mom was able to attend and Danny and Shey were there as our official witnesses. This went down at the Makati City ...Continue Reading → Share
The Makati Garden Club (which my mom is a member of) did a trip up to Tagaytay’s Flower Farm a few months ago. As my mom is a ridonkulous horticulture buff we of course had to take her up there. I’ll give credit where credit is due. There were some truly amazing plants up there. Nice timing also as the day before I’d picked up a brand new digital camera which shoots in widescreen format. So enjoy the pix and ...Continue Reading → Share
