I dedicated my studio calico august kit to creating layouts for our 2009 Bangkok trip and a few others. The paper selection just matched the photos. Glad to have created 6 layouts out of it with very usable scrap papers left. Here they are!
This trip was my mom and I's second and krista's first time in Bangkok. But it was all our first time to see the tourist spots. We went to the Wat Traimit or the 5.5 ton gold buddha, the Wat Pho/ Reclining Buddha, enjoyed Bangkok's delicious street food and withstood the heat and the traffic. But as always Bangkok was fun!
We loved our hotel, the Baiyoke Sky, not only for its spectacular view but also for its abundant breakfast buffet.
During this trip, we wished we had more time to shop!

The Big Reunion - After 5 Years
Many about fourth year college will be remembered with the company of tanya, buddy and dre. Being in the same section and on the same group projects, we spent countless days and nights together - in the condo, in UP, in Ayala, Casa Verde in Jones, Zao and Moon in Guadalupe - eating, chatting, laughing, studying, singing, ranting, getting serious, arguing and even fighting! We were young grown ups about to end a phase in our lives.
We were all different but we got along. The best things about these people was that they were real. Buddy was never hesitant to call mine and Tanya's attention whenever we acted immature; we always tried to offer our thoughts and what might be called sound advice. I miss those, I miss us. 5 years later, we re pretty much the same with a few improvements :)
For the past 10 years or so, the Nakpils have been coming home to Dipolog to spend Christmas with us and our grandaparents. Though we missed many in the family, we nonethless kept the Christmas spirit. A sumptuous Christmas dinner was prepared and served at our house. The family of tito ick and tita bouger joined us. We heard midnight mass and opened gifts after.
