Lake Vista Recreational Trail

Last week, my friend Jessica joined Tashi and I for a short walk at the Lake Vista Recreational Trail.  When we parted ways, she said she had fun and wanted to go with us again.

Macalaya Pier

It's a beautiful Sunday! Today's agenda was to visit and pay respects to our dearly departed ancestors.  My Mom's eldest brother, Uncle Cenen, and my cousin Ryan accompanied us. I lit candles for my dear Grandparents, Uncles, Aunties and relatives.  I told my Dad, it felt sad to be in the cemetery and see so… Continue reading Macalaya Pier
