Most of my friends already know how close we are since we've been traveling a lot together (at bida bidahan din siya sa blog ko.) I guess it's safe to say she's the coolest mom ever. Well just to give you an idea, she can wear a two-piece at the age of 55. I swear. How as that? ^_^ In fairness naman sa kanya, hindi siya mukang nagmumurang kamatis unlike "D" ever famous mom. Pero ang masaklap dun, hindi ko kaya ang pinaggagagawa niya. hahaha! I can still remember, while we were in Malcapuya Island, Coron way back 2009, I saw her removing her cover up..
Me: "Mama, nakakahiya! Wag ka ngang maghubad dito."
Mama: "Ay pakealam ba nila no. Hindi naman nila ako kilala e. Dali picturan mo na ko."
|She's sexy and I know it (sana lang tinanggal ang salamin. Fail. hihihi!)|
|Nang magdilim ang langit.. hahaha!|
Ayan binagyo tuloy kami. lol! Joke. I can't deny the fact that the camera loves her. She seems to enjoy every click. Wala talagang pilitan. If I tell her "Dapa!", "Higa!", "Gulong sa sand!", she'll do it effortlessly. I'm happy to see her that way. My mom never experienced this when she was still at a young age. And fulfilling her dream is a pleasure for me. hehehe! Actually, these trips opened up her mind on the idea of me doing solo backpacking. Asking permission was a breeze.
Whenever we're together, we talk endlessly. We never ran out of topic to share. And because of that, I got used to questions like..
Usisero: "Mommy mo?"
Me: "Ay hindi po.... Anak ko!"
Oo na. Maganda na siya kesa sakin (Bitter? hahaha!)
Join us as I share our mother-and-daughter affair..
- Baguio - It was the first time my mom enjoyed the Panagbenga Parade. She asked me to go with her as she got envious of my pictures way back 2007 (not a blogger then), because I showcased the uncrowded-yet-charming places of Baguio. Actually, even without a car (because we don't know how to drive), she chose to left my father behind (Ang KJ daw kasi. hihihi!) That's the reason why we haven't had a trip together. He's not into it.
- Guimaras and Bacolod - Last year, I celebrated my 26th birthday with my mom exploring western Visayas. We really had a great time eating their famous delicacies. And if pounds can talk, it'll shout out for "MORE!" We plan to go back for a weekend just to take home Calea Cakes. Kami ng matakaw!
|Kabog ang off-shoulders ko|
|Anong sinabi ng Golden Statwa...|
- Quezon Province - We spent the holy week in this quaint town together. This is one of the most memorable trip for me because I had embraced her set of friends and their family. It's as if we've known each other for so long. I'm really glad I joined my mom. Another reason why I loved it was because it's the first time I ever felt the true meaning of Holy Week season.
- Bohol and Cebu - This is supposedly a family trip but since we ran out of budget, it's just me, my mom and my younger brother. We got to explore the serene island of Malapascua, Cebu and Bohol's Country Side. Though we had a lot of mishaps for this trip, we just pampered ourselves eating our heart out in Loboc and the forbidden Lechon. Because of this, I can't help but to return in Bohol a month after. It's lovelier the second time around.

On August, I will treat them both in Boracay as promised. Hihihi! It will be our first time so I'm looking forward for another fun-filled adventures.
Talking about our dream trip, since my mom and I are both hopeless romantic, it's not hard to tell that we have the same dream destination - South Korea, the most romantic place on earth (well.. for us. hihihi!)
As much as we love Rain, Bae Yoon Joon and Jang Dong Gun (yes, even my mom have a crush on them), we also want to reminisce the scenes of korean series that made us fall on our knees, giggled as a highschool student and cried like there's no tomorrow.
|And I can't blame my mom.. Ang yu-yummy lang|
At dahil like mother, like daugther, gumagawa din siya ng sarili niyang lakwatsa. One day, she told us she got an invitation to be a model and be away for quite a few days. Coming from a mother, you might have an idea what was our reaction. Hahaha! And to think she was already 50 years old then... But we were so amazed at how it turned out.. Judge it for yourself.
|Aba aba aba at pumapayong shot din. hahaha!|
|if I know, nag-eemote pa yan, silhouette naman. lol!|
|at may paganung-ganun pang nalalaman.. ^_^|
And for the win....
|ako na ang may hubaderang nanay. lol!|
If you have it, flaunt it! Naka naman... O ikaw nagsabi niyan. Wag mo kong papatayin. Sige ka ikaw din. Walang magdadala sayo sa Korea. hahahaha! I love you so much! <3 Happy Mother's day Ma. I know you'll love me more. Chos!
Note: For how many years, it became the center piece in our living room. Guests can't help but to gaze upon it wide-eyed. Unfortunately, Ondoy happened and the flood reached half of it. Ayun, hindi na namin isinabit.. napulmunya ang picture. hihihi!
