This is a very nice photo of us when we were about to leave Manila during our short 3week stay there. All photos looked sad and finally something in which everybody's smiling. Too bad my sis isn't there, she called me up and asked if she would still go straight to the airport from work but I told her she might as well go home because she'll be caught up so much with heavy traffic. Of course we would've wanted to see her as we leave but sometimes you have to consider practicality over sentimentality. At least we were able to talk for a bit and she even saw us before heading off to work that morning.
I can't believe it's been a year and looking at Jariel there, he's so small. Our little boy has grown so much already and he's been talking a lot more. We have to plan our next trip back home so we can better prepare for it. It's always good to plan the trip ahead so better choices for cheap flights can be checked. We never go on last minute flights, that could only happen if there's some sort of emergency. We can't expect fare prices to be lower anytime soon due to the gas price hike, therefore better planning must be done so we won't end up losing all our vacation budget to air fare alone. Only if we can teleport from here to there then there's nothing to worry about.
Hopefully for our next visit there we'll get more time for vacation and get to meet up with our friends. We didn't have the luxury of time to do that before due to some other things that we had to do. If we do get more flexible schedule then we can take baby to the beach or other farther places. By that time he'll be more settled in the car, probably can have longer drive time without baby fussing. We wouldn't mind going to HK Disneyland or other neighbor Asian countries if possible. It's easy to find flights there and best deals on last minute accommodations, unlike coming from here. I'm wishful thinking right now but who knows? It would be nice to see and spend some time with my family again and for them to enjoy Jariel a bit while he's still a baby. Just us being back home will make them happy already regardless if they need to go to work and can't really be with us at all times. It will also be good for our boy to know more my side of family as he grows.
