Memorial Island Hopping #3

The highlight of of our trip in Jeju-do is the hike going up to Mt. Halla but we didn't go with the rest of the group because it will be very hard for us to carry EJ. So we just explored the beautiful Lotte Hotel where we stayed. it's surrounding is spectacular, the landscape that they invested in this hotel is phenomenal to me. You may want to take a look how beautiful the hotel is,, in my dearest hubby's blog. These photos were taken in the planetarium in front of the hotel. I think this is a wedding area where couple pronounce their vows.
These were taken in front of the hotel where the beautiful water fountains are. The main gate of the Lotte hotel. Some more coming up folks so tune in..

Mommy Moments - Haircut

The theme for this week's Mommy Moment is Haircut. A Perfect timing because my husband just cut my son's hair the other day. Sissy Rylie took a pic of EJ after his hair got cut. These photos were taken during EJ's first haircut. We brought him to a real barber (January 2008). He didn't like it hehehe. Here's the shot before the haircut. I have to sat in the chair lol.. After the hair cutting is done... The barber did not charge us because she said that first hair cut is always free. Thanks! His new look after the haircut. I posted my entry for our princess here.

Memorial island Hopping #2

During our first night at Jeju Island, we went out and ate dinner at a Korean restaurant. We ate Kalbi (not sure how they call it) but it was good. They gave us a big platter of thinly sliced pork marinated with some sauce together with veggies. Then we boiled the sauce and cooked the veggies and meat in three minutes. We ate it with rice, it was delish!
Here's the korean name of the restaurant hehehe. The ambiance was nice too. We cooked it in front of us, on top of our table.

Memorial Island Hopping #1

In every military base there is an MWR (Morale Welfare & Recreation). They always offer trips to both local and international destinations. Last month they had a trip to Australia and Thailand. This month they hosted a local trip to one of the beautiful island here in the land of the morning calm. So we signed up just so we could enjoy the nature and get out from the base a little bit. So here's the start of our journey to Jeju Island or Jejudo. My sweethearts poses before leaving our abode last Saturday. We left at three pm to catch our flight in Busan Airport.
Waiting for the bus that will take us to the airport in front of Duffy's. The MWR bus that took us to the airport. Fun inside the bus. Taken from the bus when we are approaching the Busan airport. Checking in at the airport. Photos taken at the airport lounge while waiting for the plane. Inside the jinair plane.Tune in for the next post guys..

Hallabong Fruit

The highlight of the our island hopping is the hike t Mt. Halla, but we didn't go because of the kids. Its going to be a hard one for them because its a 4 hours hike. But anyhow, one of the Filipinos who went is Kuya Noel. When we were going home he got these boxes of hallabong fruit that he bought for pasalubong. We didn't know that we are one of the recipients of those fruits lol.. Thanks a lot Kuya Noel, you are so thoughtful!Hallabong are so sweet and juicy!

Moments with Pap

The theme for this Friday's Mommy Moment is Grandparents bonding. Our kids had a lot of sweet moments with their Pap back home that is why Rylie is so close to Dad. She is Pap's partner when he is brewing coffee, a duo in sweeping the yard, and even doing dishes. She misses all of those times that she and Pap can bond together.Here's Rye helping Dad clean up the dishes.
Having a short walk in the neighborhood. Take her for ride in her stroller during winter times. A team in watching TV. Dad even attended EJ's baptism, which shocked all of us because he really is not a church goer. Pap is the cushion when they are sleepy. And a tour guide during adventures. I must have deleted accidentally the folder where Mama had moments with our kids wahhhh..

Summer is great for family Bonding

The weather was very beautiful the other day so we went to this circle where kids can bike and run around. We chased each other in the area where there is grass and we had fun. It is mandatory inside the base to wear protective gears when biking, so rylie was all decked up. The view from this area is gorgeous, you can see some part of the town and mountain.
Have a great day everyone!
