Long Summer vacation

Philippines
April 12, 2017 8:55am CST
Summer here in the Philippines had started last month and I can really feel the heat already. This is also a good time for family bonding as well as with friends in a beach or a pool. We had our 2-nights and 3-days stay in a nearby town last weekend. Kids really enjoyed it while I could say that at least I also enjoyed a little. Why? Moms are supposed to make it sure that all things needed are neatly covered. Surprisingly, there was an earthquake. It was only a mild shake but it brought fear to everyone. Most of the people in the beach decided to cut short their stay. I was quite scared too because we were far away from home and kids were with us which I could consider not bad enough. I hope that its not going to happen again because we still want to enjoy the summer vacation.

@Shavkat Yup manila. Our plan will be on 17 however we are hesitant due to quake and uncertainty. We don't know if we can find a good place to stay in.

Moms/Wives are the one responsible for anything and everything. Haha. Need to pack clothes and make sure that all we need is with us. Need to check the itineraries and places to eat... etc, etc.

Those earthquakes are so frightening. We can't control what is happening during such times.
