Trip to the Philippines

It's been a while since I've updated, huh? Been busy with school again and I'm slowly starting to stress a bit with my finals coming up next month. x_x

April was another hectic month for me. I had a lot of homework to finish before the Easter break came and most of them had deadlines on the same day, so it was pretty much "alskdfja;sdlkfj;asdjklfa;sd" everywhere. Unfortunately, I didn't exactly have much of a holiday because my parents were practically dragging me from place to place while we were in the Philippines. Mostly had to attend some religious activities in celebration of Easter and meet up with the relatives. @__@

It was pretty refreshing being back in the Phlippines though, regardless of the fact that I didn't really get to do my homework while we were there. Firstly because I haven't seen my relatives for almost 2 years already and many of my younger cousins are already going into University or graduating really soon (I wish I could say the same for myself but the schooling system here in Hong Kong makes us stay until Secondary 7/Grade 13. I'm getting left behind. Hahaha!). I also had a blast when we (my family and a bunch of our other realtives) visited a home for abandoned children with mental illnesses. To my surprise, they could still communicate in their own little ways and would laugh, sing and dance for us. The experience really helped me learn how to be thankful for the gift of life. ^_^

Besides all this family stuff, I also got to meet up with some of my online friends from the group we call the Enis, which is basically full of YTChorus Filipinos. Among those I met up with were Apol, Xephy, Kana, Ritz, Shock and Suroy. I gave them chocolates and we ate pizza together. We went to play at the arcade afterwards and visited Comic Alley, where Apol and I bought some Docomo stuff for Haru. I need to mention the strawberry shake that Apol treated me: It was so bad, it tasted like cough syrup for children with strawberry flavour. It took me an hour and a half to down. Apol's shake was no better either. He ordered Kiwi but he said it didn't even taste like Kiwi. Suroy's shake was bad as well. xDD
No srsly. Thanks for coming everyone! They all spent quite some money and effort just to come over to see me. ouo)/~
I'll probably post and update with photos of us together. =w=)b*

Thinking back on the stuff I did while back in the Philippines really brings a smile to my face. I'm really glad that I'm lucky enough to have friends and relatives that I genuinely care about. It's really hard to say whether I like the Philippines or Hong Kong more. It's just one of those questions I cannot bring myself to answer.
