Shopping with Cousins

I’ve got cousins who work abroad. Most of them are working in the medical field and it was only every summer that they get a chance to go home here in the Philippines so they can spend time with their respective families. When we, the cousins, get together, we instantly bond through shopping. We get to buy clothes, Cherokee uniforms, shoes, accessories, and eat in a fancy restaurant and have a never ending chit chat. It only happens once a year but we make sure that we get to spend some quality time together.

Bohol Getaway with the Clan

We had a very long-weekend and we enjoyed it in Bohol. Yes! I call it the Bohol August Getaway together with my relatives. We were 50 plus persons including the children and we had a BLAST in Bohol.

We visited our Grandmother, “Lola Azon” as we fondly called her at the same time we celebrated our cousin’s (Manong Lito) 47th birthday in Lola’s house. Manong Lito and Tata Tony brought 2 cars (Grandia and Navara) but still it is not enough to service all of us. So we rent another van and we also borrowed another van from our Tita Grace for our Bohol tour and other activities, but before we rent the van for hire we made sure that its tire rims are in good condition, because we don’t want to face road problems while on tour. We went to a lot of place and I will share it with you in the coming days.

As for now, I just want to say that our Bohol August Getaway was a HUGE SUCCESS.

Bohol August Getaway

A long weekend is what everyone needs and God is so good because before the month of August ends, we have a super long-weekend. No work and no class and it just means that we could visit our grandmother in Bohol. You see, this is quite different and we are not used to visiting our grandmother for any other month because we are used to visiting her on May (Month of Festivals in Bohol) and on June (our grandmother’s birthday falls on the 26th).

But this August, we could spend a full four days vacation with her. We didn’t even think twice if we should go or not go, just like when I am thinking of what is the best weight loss pills for women nowadays.

I am so excited for our Bohol  August Getaway and I just can’t wait to see my dear relatives who are going to spend the weekend with us.
