My YAPPY SUMMER 2019 feature was supposed to be one looooooooooooooooooooooooong excruciating post but then I took pity on my one or two readers (icharge pa sakin ang pagpapagawa ng salamin  nila) that I thought of just making it a two-parter. Tee hee!!!

Yeah... I know... I know that I could get a little bit too detailed in my blog posts but it's because I consider times with my ugly husband, my boys, my family, and my few close friends to be the best experiences of all that I don't want to miss out on anything (even if it's just a very minute detail of like, let's say, cleaning the bathroom... I SWEAR). So sorry na lang kayo that I'm sharing it with you. Ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Here's part TWO of our YAPPY SUMMER that, even if we had three months of school break, it was still OH SO bitin for all of us!!!

Enjoy.... at your own risk. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

My little guys' school is adjusting to start classes at August to follow the newly recommended regulations by CHED.

Wow! So that meant by boys will have a 3 month vacation??? YEHESSSS!!!


You'd think that 3 months is more than enough...
You'd think that 3 months will get us all so bored...
You'd think that we'll be raring to send the boys back to school...


The three months school vacation was still "BITIN" with a capital B and WHYYYY Huhuhu!!! Why can't vacations last forever? I'll surely miss having them around, going on foodtrips, and doing stuff until the late nights.  My little guys certainly feel the same.

Check out the long (but not so much) school vacation of the boys and how those 3 months just whizzed by like a shooting star defying the laws of gravity (thanks Queen).

And of course, I'll still say it (like I often do) to commemorate our love for summer:

No more classes! No more books!
No more teacher's dirty looks!

This was by far the boys' best summer vacation yet!!!


April 17

Master Mati was finally "free"!!! He woke up late and enjoyed his breakfast. Yep! Nobody was telling him to hurry up.

As for Andrei, he didn't have classes anymore but he still had to go to school to attend graduation practices, so, it's not fully vacation mode yet!

When we go out of the country, looking for our hotel accommodations is very important. Before when it was just me and the Yub, we're fine wherever it was cheap. However when the little lords arrived, we became very particular with the cleanliness, security, AND safety of where we're going to stay. Of course, price was still very much a factor (HELLOOOOO we're proudly kuripots... ha ha ha ha) and it's great that we're still able to find accommodations with those qualifications. He he he he he he!

For our recent KOREA trip, we availed the services of a travel agency so we were at their mercy when it comes to our hotel. They gave us the name and upon checking their site online, it was just okay. I mean, we'd prefer somewhere else, but this was what's included in our package and I think it's near the touristy district of Korea.

Lo and behold, when we arrived in Korea, we were informed by our guide that there have been changes in our accommodations. Instead of hotel X, we will now be staying at RAMADA ENCORE by WYNDHAM. She proudly stated that it's a 4 star hotel (as opposed to Hotel X which was only 3 stars) and it recently opened. The only drawback was that it was SOOOOO far from our touristy places (think a 1 hour drive everyday) that whatever plans we made were going to change.

At first we were all peeved with the change in location. However, when we got to the hotel, we appreciated all the space and the sosy wosy interiors (compared to Hotel X). And yes, it may be far from the tourist spots but at least we get an additional hour's sleep in the bus everyday before getting to our destination (this was perfect because we always wake up early for the "call time").

Sharing with you our hotel stay in KOREA! This just goes on to prove though that in whatever obstacles (or changes) that come in your life, you should still learn to make the best of it and appreciate everything. O di ba, we were still all happy in the end.

THE YAPPY BUNCH were in KOREA and besides the sights, the shopping, and bonding, we were also in this K-pop dominated country for another thing...


And though we were confined to what was included in our travel group, we still enjoyed the authentic Korean grub served to us.

Check out part two of this very tasty tripping!!!!

ENJOY!!! We know we did! He he he he he!

For our 3rd day in Korea, we finally went to Everland!

To be honest, I'm not really sure of what to do in Korea. When planning the trip, the Yub and I just decided to go there because it's one of the must-see Asian countries that we haven't been to. I'm not into Koreanovelas so going to some of their popular TV attractions might not interest me. What I do know however is that I absolutely LOOOOOOOOVED Korean food, and it's something that I was SUPER looking forward to for our trip.

HOW-EVER, we were joining a group tour (with Aning's family) and while chatting up with my mareng Gail (who recently had a Korean tour via a travel agent), we figured out that the establishments we'll go to might likely be the same. She said she didn't enjoy the food and that (mostly) everything was blech (probably because they went to the commercialized touristy places). So yeah, my excitement (foodwise) sorta went down the drain after that. What only lifted me up was the thought that we'll sneak a bite or two from Mcdonald's (since we'd usually try one in every country) or feast in 7-11 (like what Strictly Dumpling did). Yun lang, hope we could do it with our travel group tour schedule!

What happened? Let's just say we were all pleasantly surprised.

Read on and enjoy!!


And we're HUNGRY for some authentic Korean food!

WAAAAAAAAAH it's our last day!!!! And though nothing much happened here, I still want to document it in this silly little blogations of mine.

This is my online diary after all.

Ay you should see my actual kiddie diary, SOBRANG detalyado. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!


So it's our last day and we slept extra late last night to fix all of our things. I'm thankful that my little guys now know how to pack their bags so it's a big help for me (before I used to do it all for them). Yun lang unlike our out of town trips, the Yub and I have to fix all luggage afterwards to distribute the weight and to cushion fragile items. The last thing we want is to have an explosion of my... ahem... forehead cream. He he he he!!!!!

As much as we were sad to pack and leave Korea, we missed my Mom SOOOOOOOOOOOO much and wanted to see her ASAP (I'll tell you why later).

Check out our last few hours in Korea and our return to the wonderful land of the Philippinnnnnnnnnnnnnesssssss!!! He he he he!

It's "SOOO EXCIIITEDDD KOREA" day 4 and since we will be leaving the next day for home, we plan on giving our all in our last full day of fun!!

We joined Aning's family for the tour so as to experience the convenience of being in a group and though there were many snafus in the travel arrangements, it was still all awesome because we were in the company of great friends. You might say that THAT made the trip extra enjoyable! Great too that Aning took charge and we were all just relaxed and enjoyed the ride. Yehessssss...

When we woke up that morning, we were still all drunk from all the fun in the past 3 days. With that, we all got up because we wanted to start our day, fast. 

Syempre we had to get energized and start our day with breakfast. We all went down so hyper and happy!

Only to be greeted with THIS!
