Ocean Park- Manila

We went to the ocean park of manila yesterday. It was fun and very interesting to see a lot of different fish. It would be brilliant to bring kids here because ocean park would not amuse them but also would give them knowledge about creatures of the deep.
Manila ocean park is located at Quirino St., Manila and is besides Manila Hotel. We were 17 and they give discounts instead of paying php400, we only payed php350. We also have known that if there are more than 20 persons in group, they can avail discounts if they would give a letter one week prior to the visit. They would give hp250 for the kids and php320 for the adults including 1 free ticket, i think this is really a great deal for ministry leaders that are planning for a Manila ocean park tour.
here some pixs:

Canada... ooh Elmira

My friend sent a message for me on facebook asking for our duration of stay during our visit for her wedding. They are making an invitation that hopefully will make the Canadian consul grant us a visa.
They are asking us to stay until Waterloo "ride for refugees" day so that we could still attend this event. Actually I'm keeping my faith alive in this but still crossing my finger to keep me from deep hurt (huhuhu!) if thing won't work as we expected.
Still thankful to HIM who makes things beautiful in His time :)

Luton, England 2006

Hubby went to Luton, England for four months on 2006. It was an ultimate trip for him. He was part of a program in our team called EPIC. It's an exchange program where some of our youth leaders from our church could experience mission in Luton and vise versa they could also send their youths here for mission trip. Hubby was blessed to be chosen as a participant.

Sometime in Bataan

Few years ago we lead a team to this place somewhere in Bataan.
We really like this house and so we take a picture it.
Hoping someday we'll be able to go back.

Puerto Galera (June 2009)

Last year my team went to White Beach-Puerto Galera Philippines to hold our annual team retreat. We stayed at certain hotel (sorry I forgot the name) anyway there are lots of hotels and transient rooms and houses there, very cheap but good accommodation.
To go to Puerto Galera:
Take a bus (jac liner, Jam..ect.) from Buendia LRT bus stations to Batangas Pier -this will cost you approximately Php 200. Then from Pier take a boat going to white beach - this will cost you Php450 two way and including all the other fees (a tourist will pay environmental and port fees).
Note: you need to tell the boatman that's stationed at the beach regarding the time you want to leave because the boat might leave without you.

Cambodia in mind!

Last Saturday, my team plus hubby and I had a meeting. Of course we discuss all the plans we had for the Cambodia touch trip on October 24 until November 2. I am both excited and worried at the same time. Excited because I will be able to visit my this historic place. I am also worried that hubby and I might not be able to raise the fund needed for our trip.
Way back nine years ago I long to visit Cambodia and serve Him there, but it did not happen until this year when the opportunity open up for us to visit.
I'm giving it up all to Him!
