busy...busy...busy...

It's been a month since Hubert has left for China. And it's just now that I got the chance to sit down and tinker on the pc for a much longer time. Since the time Hubert went to Suzhou, life has been so busy on me. Now, I know how it feels to rear the kids alone. It's a real big sacrifice on both Hubert and me, but I know it's for our future. At least Jeremy looks forward to the time Papa Bert comes home with his new toy, his Gameboy or a PSP perhaps, hehe, and Frances Clare with her new pink room :)

As for me, I just keep myself busy, sending off the kids to school and also doing my presidential duties in school, hehe ( PTA President po ang beauty ko! "lol") and in the evening, after study time with the kids, I also work on the side by accepting tutorial services within the subdivision. Just trying to keep myself busy to fight off the loneliness of having my love far away from home. Hirap pala!

Kawasan... I'm back...

Last July 17, we went to Kawasan Falls in Matutinao, Badian, Cebu. It's been 13 years since I last set foot on the trails towards Kawasan falls, and the thought of going back there, this time with two kids in tow has created mixed feelings in me. First, it got me so excited going back there since the last time I went to the falls was when I was yet in my sophomore year in high school. I was so eager to find out how Kawasan falls now looks like after all those years. At the same time,I was worried about the getting their by foot, one of my kids might surrender walking in the middle of our trek,and it's not easy carrying them on my back, oh my back... It's about 30-minute walk starting from the spot where we parked our service beside Badian church. What a relief when I found out that the paths leading to the falls have been improved from how it used to be, a sturdier foot bridge has replaced the rotten wooden one, and most of all, the kids Jeremy and Frances had the energy to really walk with us. Thanks God, what a relief, whew!! :)

then and now...

Just got back from a long weekend spent there in Ronda town, 81 kms south of Cebu City. We were there to pay our last respect to our departed lolo and to keep our lola some company. It was also a chance to get together with cousins, aunts, and uncles, whom we haven't met for a long time or those we've met for the first time. I had a chance to look at old pictures kept in our ancestral home. My cousins and I wfound ourselves amazed and laughing at how funny we looked then, just imagine the 80's hairstyle and you'll surely know what I'm talking about. I also discovered that my 3 year old daughter is just exactly my replica when I was her age, hehehe... here's some of those pics...

then...

Farewell, Lolo Sencio...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketIt's a bit odd to start a blog with a very sad post... but I have to because it means a lot to me. Last April 15, 2005, the Grand Old Man of the Enriquez' family joined his creator at the age of 84. Cresencio "Lolo Sencio" Enriquez y Fernandez deserves this post as a tribute in his honor.

We have so much to thank our Lolo Sencio for. During his time, he was a war veteran who fought during World War II; a good teacher to all his students; a mentor to some; an inventor; and an inspiration to us all. I could still remember the time when we were still kids, Lolo would always bring us to an afternoon walk at the "pantalan" in Ronda or amaze us with his stories, Lolo was a very wide reader you know... But all these memories of Lolo Sencio will remain with me forever. Lolo's memories will always be treasured. His legacy will always live on especially that I have taken the road which Lolo has taken during his time, the passion for teaching runs through my blood, having come from a family of educators---from my lolo, lola, grandaunt,aunties, my mother, and me.

Last Monday, April 18, 2005, we saw our Lolo for the last time before we laid him to his final rest.

All I can say is that "My grandpa's the greatest. Lolo, you may be gone, but memories of you will always linger in our hearts...We'll surely miss you...Goodbye, Lo..."

At last, free from work...

It's been a long time since my pilot post here in blogspot. There are many reasons why it took me so long to really create a longer post, first im still not too familiar with how to go about with it, especially that it was my bro who opened this for me ( Thanks!) and most of all, I didn't have much time tinkering the computer. Being a mother, a pre-school teacher, a wife, a daughter, and a friend eat up so much of my time. Well, that's how life goes... each of us has his or her different roles to play at one time or another.. Agree? Anyway, here are some pics I'd like to share with you, some of which are snapshots from Rene, my brother, I really have to mention his name to give credit for the beautiful shots he's taken of me and my kiddos...
