Hongkong Disneyland, the Happiest Place in Hongkong

Our family was so blessed to go to Hongkong for a vacation. Why Hongkong when most of the people there act as if tourists are irritating swarm of mosquitoes? One word: DISNEYLAND!!!!!

The Chipmunks at the Parade
So to Disney, we go!

My top three favorites:

1. The Mystic Manor (Only HK Disney has this)
2. The Jungle River Cruise
3. It's a Small World
4. Mickey's Philharmagic - oh I have four, ugh, can I add two more? hehehehe

The Beautiful Tacloban

Work allowed me to visit another province in the Philippines that I had yet to see: Leyte.

Walking along the streets of Tacloban while listening to the horror stories of an officemate brought by Typhoon Yolanda made me realize the magnitude of the destruction. What I saw from the news and social media did not come close to the horror faced by the people of Leyte.  A lot of the structures have been rebuilt or reinforced,  but some structures still bore the aftermath of the wrath of Yolanda.

Lunch Letters Book

I saw this book at Booksale and immediately bought it. It's entitled "Lunch Letters"  by Carol Sperandeo and Bill Zimmerman. I bought this for P70.00.

It's a book encouraging parents to write "lunch" notes to their kids.  Well, any note, actually.  The aim is to get back to writing love letters and reminding your kids who awesome they are and that the parents are 101% behind them no matter what.
