Swimming with Whaleshark - Nostalgia # 53

Photobucket
Today, May 18 is the celebration of town fiesta in Donsol, a small town in Sorsogon where I grew up in.  I am looking forward to talking to my Mom  tonight  because she is in Legazpi to get the money I have sent the pother day.


It was two years ago when we first visited Philippines since I left.  We were still in Korea back then.  We  took opportunity of flying there going to the Philippines as it was closer and less expensive.  It was also a very special trip  because we celebrated both  of my husband and son's birthdays with my family.  My  eldest brother was still alive then  two months after that we came back again  for his funeral.  It was painful to get back there knowing that we have to bury a love one.
Some of the photos we took when swam with the butandings or whaleshark.
Before you leave, would you mind helping Miracle Players Foundation  generate funds  for children with  cancer.  For every like that they receive in Facebook page, TechInsurance will donate $1 to Miracle Players Foundation so it is like donating one dollar when you spare  a minute and like the page.  Thank you for your support!

Mr. Burrito seem to be in a bad mood while Ms. Burrito is having fun and looking beautiful as always. Must have been fun to see a butanding up close!

It's good to be back at Nostalgia. Been MIA for two weeks. Sowee. :)

I am sorry to hear about your brother, Rose. I am sure he is in a better place now.

Ang sasaya naman ng mga kuha nyo. Sabay ba ang bday ni Mr. Buritto at ng dakilang ama ng tahanan? Hehe!

Endangered Specie ba yang butanding? Mukhang wala yan dito samin, LOL!

Hugs,

Hahaha Korek ka dyan sis, he poke the cake kasi with his fingers before we could light the candle up so I told him about and he did not like it kaya he was in the pissy mood na when the picture was taken..

hindi pa rin ako nakakakita ng butanding, tokaya. hopefully next year kapag natuloy iyong plano naming vacation.

nga pala thanks in advance. nag-abala ka pa. ok lang kahit wala or kahit ano iyon Tokaya. it's the thought that counts. mwaaah!

God bless you all always!
