Life stories from the blogger
Hello, wormies! I bet you were wondering where I disappeared to? Well, I was actually ehemm on vacation in my hometown, Dumaguete City, in the Philippines.
Why wasn’t I blogging? Well, I planned on blogging while I was on vacation but my plan did not pan out as well as I expected it to. I mean, I just realized that I NEVER updated my internet plan since I was in college, which was roughly 10 years ago. WHAT?!! Yep, I just didn’t think about it and so, the internet was crawwwwwling.
On another note, I celebrated my 30-something birthday there after not celebrating it at there for a number of years. In true bookish fashion, I had a Harry Potter themed dessert table that I set-up myself! Of course, I did not bake the cake. LOL
I also attended my cousins’ wedding. Apparently, I had a role in the entourage. *wink
My cousin is the groom.
And my cousins who are like my sisters <3
I also managed to get Pierre to wear a suit.
We didn’t do a lot of touristy things when I went home, though. I also got sick the last week I was there so that is my excuse! And yeah, I still haven’t downloaded the few photos I took there. Sigh*
I met a few of my friends, though! It was fun catching up with them. Plus, some of them already have kids! 🙂
One of the things I noticed is that my hometown has changed A LOT since I last visited three years ago. I feel like it’s NOT a sleepy University Town anymore and even in the dead of summer, it was PACKED! It used to be really quiet during summer (summer in the Philippines starts in April) and I always loved it. It’s a different story now.
So, while I loved that there is progress in the city, I still wish that it was the same city I remembered growing up in.
Do you ever do touristy things when you visit your hometown? Do you love (or hate) the changes made in your hometown?
