Joshwa’s First Trip to Baguio

This was my favorite photo during Joshwa’s first trip to Baguio in 2005. When this photo was taken he was 4 years old but he looked small for his age. He also wasn’t as talkative at  this age. He looked so cute and so charming and he was really ready to ride the horse. All he needed was the complete equestrian apparel . But the problem was at that time he was too young to ride the horse. We just couldn’t find the perfect horse for him .


Dipolog City

We went to Dipolog last October 23 for the blessing of Papa’s latest venture.

Adrianne was very excited to ride the airplane she was in her best behavior

Our first stop in Dipolog was the cemetery to visit my lola. Adrianne shares her birthday with my lola.

The reason why we went to Dipolog the blessing of Rosita Apartments which papa named in his mom’s honor.He was so happy I wanted to give him a arturo fuente opus x  as a gift.

Adrianne with Mama, I really do believe that she looks more like my mom than me.

Sabine and Adrianne had so much fun together.

Adrianne was so touched when they called her on stage and Papa asked everyone to sing for her a Happy Birthday.

She enjoyed that moment so much that she was asking me if she’s going to celebrate her birthday in Dipolog next year.The next day we had a bit of downtime so Adrianne and Philbert took advantage of that and they went swimming in the hotel pool and Adrianne said it was the best day ever.

My sister also celebrated her birthday in Dipolog.
