Not all our vacation was spent on shopping, complaining about airline policy and the sweltering summer heat. To get them off my back, I agreed to my wife’s suggestion to enroll our daughter on a ballet class. I’m not expecting she’ll dance like Lisa Macuja. But it’s a good way to spend her extra energy. Besides, I don’t like my wife and daughter bothering me while I attend on some matters regarding my parents’ estate.
As usual, my wife took photos. She wants to document every stage of my daughter’s formative years.
The class includes callisthenic and stretching exercises. But being over-weight, her teachers have to assist her in some of their work-outs.
Ballet supposes to teach children balance and poise. But losing extra two pounds in three weeks of class did her good.
To escape the summer heat, I made it a point to go somewhere during weekends to cool-off. Our usual destinations are the beach and swimming pools.
At Hawili beach with some cousins.
At Sampaguita compound (Precious Moments) with friends.
At a local hotel swimming pool.
Before we returned back, we went to Tagaytay with some friends from Riyadh.
We spent the whole day visiting all its scenic places. Actually the scenic views are the same. It’s all overlooking Taal Lake.
My daughter’s first horse back riding. She wasn’t afraid at all unlike other kids her age. In fact she enjoyed the ride, squealing in excitement all the way.
Well, so much for my vacation. Back to reality and will resume regular programming on my next post.
