And So Life Begins....My Birthday!

I celebrated my third birthday in our new home country. I must admit, on my first two birthdays I was still caught up with the excitement of it all, the excitement of new things, new places, and new experiences. Everything was just happy, happy!

This year though, it was a bit different.


Free 2017 Parks Canada Discovery Pass

To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday next year, the 2017 Discovery Pass will provide free admission for the entire year to Parks Canada places all over the country!


Batiste Dry Shampoo

When we were still in the Philippines, I would take a bath at least once a day. During summer days, I would take a bath two to three times a day. For anyone who has experienced the humidity of our tropical country, they would understand.

When I came to Canada, I learned that taking a bath, taking a shower, and washing your hair meant entirely different things.


Spectac! 2016 Royal Canadian Circus

Strap & Silk Aerial Act 
Last Saturday, we went to the Edmonton Expo Centre to watch the Royal Canadian Cirus. It was our first time to watch a real live circus under an actual "big top"! It was a very rainy afternoon. Good thing I was able to buy tickets earlier online. The ticket booth also opened outside the tent, but considering the pouring rain that afternoon, it was definitely more convenient to have tickets ahead of time.


Edmonton's Mid-Autumn Festival 2015

Every week, we try to go somewhere to explore our new home, Edmonton. Last month, we decided to go to the Mid-Autumn Festival at the Churchill Square. The event's Facebook page describes  The Mid-Autumn Festival as follows:

The Mid-Autumn Festival is traditionally a harvest festival that revolves around the gathering of family and friends, giving thanks to the harvest, and wishing for longevity, good fortune, and happiness. It is often celebrated with mooncake, lanterns, and reunions.


Digital Project Life, My Way

I have been on a bit of hiatus for a while. School and life just took too much of my time. Now that school is almost done and I am doing my work practicum, I have more time in my hands. I actually started with several projects and hobbies like jewelry making, but then I started getting interested in scrapbooking again. That's what usually happens with my creative juices, either they're not there or they come in bucketfuls.

2015 Week 34 (Seafoam kit, Project 52 title card)

I've always been into scrapbooking, the digital kind, but when the hubby and I started our photography business years ago, I had no more time to spare. Recently, as I was watching youtube videos of jewelry-making,  I stumbled upon a video of Becky Higgins and Project Life. I have been hearing about it but I never really bothered to find out more. When I finally sat down and read blogs and watched videos, I was hooked!


Cooking Lechon Kawali in Canada

One of the things I  really miss from our life in the Philippines is the food.  One of our favourites is Lechon Kawali.  It is definitely not the healthiest food choice,  but it is soooo good.  That became our staple contribution to family potlucks.


Dinosaur Unearthed Exhibit at the Telus World of Science

Yesterday was Victoria Day here in Canada, a holiday.  We were so grateful for the chance to rest and be together longer.  Weekends always seem too short.  We wanted to go for a trip to Calgary,  Jasper maybe, we also received invitations to join different groups of people camping.  It was pretty obvious everybody was bent on enjoying the long weekend.  Since Bea was still a bit sick,  we decided to just stay within the Edmonton city limits.
