while I was away...

It's been a while since my last post more than a month ago...
well, much have happened and they were a mixture of pleasant and not-so-pleasant events...

first dad was admitted into the hospital ....yea....again....
this time - it's for his pro-longed stomach ache which caused much panic among us....we thought of the worst but it was caused by his failing gall stopped functioning and had to be removed immediately....he's gall bladder-less now....

that was 2 weeks before hubby and I were to leave for our vacation in Japan.
Well, God answered our prayers and dad was discharged and given a clean bill of health a few days before our trip. Hence, hubby and I left for Japan with a much relieved feeling.

'Honeymoon' in Japan was superb! We visited Kyoto and Tokyo and had the time of our life there! Love the country, people, environment and all things Japanese! And we can see ourselves back there again with our kids in tow the next time. Yes! that's how much we love the country!
Some pictures to describe our memorable trip....
