Been in Illinois for almost a week but now back in Canada again. Still getting my flight back home fixed. It's amazing how fast my babies have grown! I'm the eldest among the cousins from my mother's side. I've taken care of some of them when they were babies and now they're all grown up. The second eldest is now married and I'm even one of the godmothers of her baby. An adorable baby girl! It's so fun being all together. We just feel bad that we have a few more cousins still in the Philippines who couldn't be with us. We spent our nights playing poker (Texas Hold'em... which I'm beginning to be an expert in), singing videoke, and drinking beer. I wish I could've spent more time with them. But I kinda feel old seeing all my cousins now grown up.
My cousins bought me the newest Harry Potter book, The Half-Blood Prince and I just finished reading it the other night. I read in the newspapers that someone was going to die again and from how the story was unfolding I really thought it was Draco Malfoy. Alas! It wasn't! I don't wanna ruin it for those who are still reading or going to read the book but I really felt depressed after. Well... It makes it more realistic though. Just couldn't believe J.K. Rowling killed HIM! Of course not Harry Potter.
Anyway... I'm kinda out of the loop with whatever's happening in the Philippines. But I try to watch the news as often as I can. I'm a couple of weeks away from going home. So, hope to see all of you guys soon!
