A Special Birthday Greeting to Vernice, the Best Sister in the World

Since it’s my sister’s birthday today (May 1, at least in the US), I thought I’d dedicate a space for her here on my blog. Read the rest of this entry

2012 Holiday Family Portraits


Every year,
I would make it a point to organize my family’s Christmas photo shoot. And the photo shoot would always take place at home. 🙂 I think doing the photo shoot at a professional studio would make my dad uncomfortable (if not completely make him shy away from the camera! :D). At home, there’s no feeling of pressure and because we are in the place where we share good memories the smile just comes out naturally. 🙂

To Super Woman whom I call Mom

Today as the world celebrates the occasion dedicated to all mothers,
I want to give some space here to greet this super woman whom I call Mom.


Thank you for all your sacrifices.

Thank you for sharing your faith with me, it is what helped me get through life’s trials.

Thank you for reminding me that I have so much to thank for
because I have you, Daddy, Tito Art, ate Vernice, Kuya Andrew, JV and MJ.

For all the things you’ve done, just saying thank you is not enough.

For the rest of my life, I hope to remind you that
and you are mine. 

Happy Mother’s day Momsie!

I love you!

In loving memory…

Never have I experienced losing someone close to me, not until 19 days ago when my Lolo Mading left the mortal world to be with the Father in heaven.

It was painful for us because for two years he lived with us and we took care of him like a baby Read the rest of this entry

Happy Happy Birthday!

On April 6, my nephew Joseph Vince Favis Paz or JV

celebrated his 8th birthday 🙂  Mom and I really miss him

and little MJ (his brother) so much.

We hope we can relive the weeks when they came home

to the Philippines August and October of last year.

Although it was the first time he met us in person,

we bonded right away, and that’s why we were really

sad when they went back to America.

Anyway, at least we still get to see my sister, JV and little MJ every now and then.

Thanks to SKYPE!

However, we won’t be able to take part of his birthday

celebration so I just created a video containing

our birthday greetings for him. 🙂
