Blogging became part of my life, I always miss my blog and reading others post. I was busy in some other things this past few days and I realized that during that busy days, my blog and your blogs as well were always on my mind, questions like what might be your interesting post today, how many visitors do I have today, or what happen in the blogosphere this time were the things that my mind always asked whenever I can’t open my blog for a day.

Temperature is getting hotter and hotter in Kuwait nowadays, commodities, rents and expenses are getting higher also, so I hope that this will not make my blood pressure raise up also or else I might burst! lol πŸ˜€ We want to go on vacation anywhere but I’m not allowed to travel, I asked my doctor twice and she never agreed for some health reasons. I’m not dying guys, I’m about to give life someday….! Got me? I think I’m talking here randomly, right? Well….I just miss my country so much, my hometown, my family and friends. Kuwait’s summer zephyr is not fun at all πŸ™‚ How I wish that I’m in Philippines nowadays to breath the fresh air of my hometown, to relax and have some fun in one of the beaches there, so refreshing! Hmmmm…just imagining πŸ™‚

Here’s some of the Philippines views that I got from flicker this morning:

That’s all for today and thanks Darya for your concern about me….. πŸ™‚


This is supposed to be my first post after our vacation but I got some problems in retrieving the pics that I took for the Mall of Asia from my camera, my son played with it so I lost some of the photos. We stayed 3 days in Manila before we left Phil. for Kuwait so we spent most of our time in MOA (Mall of Asia), some of my friends told me that one of the most captivating scene at the mall is the sunset but unfortunately I did not able to take any photo of the sunset because there was no sunset image at all during our stay in Manila. We went to the mall every 3:30 pm so that I will be able to witness the famous sunset there but I was really frustrated, the weather wasn’t friendly to us since it was raining every afternoon for the whole 3 days that we were there. Another frustrating part was we did not able to visit all the shops and stores of the mall completely since it was too huge and we already tired of walking. So that’s my story.

Now I want to talk about the mall itself, the MOA or Mall of Asia is the largest shopping mall in the Philippines , it ranks as the third biggest shopping center in the world, in terms of gross leaseable area, ranks behind the Golden Resources Mall in China and the West Edmonton Mall in Canada. It is located in Pasay City, aptly nicknamed “Bay City”. It is built on 19.5 hectares of reclaimed land and has a gross floor area of 386,224 square meters.

Four buildings make up the SM Mall of Asia, the Main Mall, the Entertainment Mall and the North and South Car park buildings, The South Parking building houses the mall’s official SM Department Store, while the mall’s supermarket, the SM Hypermarket is located within the North Parking building.

Olympic-sized ice skating rink. At 61 by 30 meters, the rink is described as the biggest of its kind in Southeast Asia.


Food Court that serves both interntional and local cuisines.

I did not able to take photos of the sunset there but I was glad that I witnessed the fireworks at the mall, the only problem is that was my first time to take fireworks photos so expect that I did not able to make it perfectly.

Note: Except for the fireworks, all pictures were taken during late cloudy afternoon before the rain started, that’s why it appears to be little bit dark.

The following pics were taken during our vacation in Phil. 3 months ago at one of the most visited resort in our place. It took us 2 hours to travel just to reach this mountain resort. The road was so rocky also and some of our companions wanted to give up from our never ending journey, we were very tired of travelling but our stress were gone like a wind when we saw the Edenic beauty of our final destination. The water was so cool and clear that even you drop a tiny needle, you still be able to find it immediately.
