My friend and I

My friend Ivy and her husband bruce and their cute little angel Joshua. My husband and i just had a visit with them last sunday at their lovely home in Burnaby.
When you are at other country you tend to seek people or a group who has the same race with you, so you wont feel so alienated with the new place you are with and the feeling of homesick will ease a bit, and it gives you comfort maybe just for a feel so glad knowing you can talk using your own language and share your thoughts with them. It seems you feel belongingness, a family away from family.....
For just a few instances, and i am lucky enough that my friend Ivy here is one of my neighbor back in my hometown in the philippines....she's married to a canadian national too and landed here at the same day with mine a year ago. I am proud to say that me and my husband will be a god parents to their son Joshua soon.....hoping and praying we will have our own child too soon.....ah well, God provides and God knows what's best for us......
God Bless to all!

canada, here i am!

Been in canada for a week and 4 days now, exploring maple ridge district a bit, wow, the place is beautiful, the air and the environment is clear and clean, and people here are courteous. what amazed me most are the flowers and the trees here, each kind possessed with vibrant colors, trees changes in colors as the weather changes, from green turns into red mostly, fantastic!

When i got here last September 11, it was sunny, the air is not that cold, and so i told my husband that the weather is perfect, no rain and the temperature is just like baguio, its a wow. But just in a few days later, the weather changes and starts raining now as its approaching to cold cold season starting on october, wow, its reeeeaaaaally cold, take note, its not winter yet hehehe....but we are lucky enough to know that we got a nicer weather, compared to the rest of canada.....hmmmm winter is just a few months away, anticipating how cold it is, my husband bought me a tiger stylish winter jacket in which it is very thick, he teased me that it is an ewok suit as it seems it makes me smaller with that jacket because of the thickness hehhee....hoping i can play in the snow when winter comes.....but according to my husband, we just got few days of snow here, and got rainy days mostly throughout winter, well, if ever the global weather wont change.....hmmmm...isn't that great? perfect! oh i forgot, its rainy here for about 8 months in a year..hmmmmm....greaattt!
