What's your favorite activity? Here's mine..

So I've been asked this question - "What's your favorite activity"? 

I know it's really simple to answer... I mean it's almost a tie between cooking and *ahem* eating *ahem* but this question has got me thinking. You see, there's a lot and a whole new facet to marriage & motherhood and the many things we moms must do that sometimes, in the sea of parenting, work and other adult responsibilities, we lose the sense of our personal hobbies and activities that brings us joy.

So after thinking long and hard, I guess preferences for certain activities indeed change with the passing of time and the changes in one's life. Speaking for myself, I guess it's not just in the physical act of cooking or eating out -- it's in sharing not only meals, but also time, stories and adventures with family and friends alike. 

And not only that, I realize that it's also become a favorite activity of mine to document these dining and out of town trips through blogs and vlogs - wherein the calories may have long gone, but the memories still remain! That's a win in my book! Hahaha pak, ganern! :D

Seriously, I know how they say that this season of life where the kids are still small are all so fleeting? I completely agree! That's why whenever I have the time, I make sure to always bring my camera so I can always document whatever small, big or even silly milestone we are privileged to witness.

I'll be sharing some of the vlogs I've made, memories of which I still hold dearly and often reminisce about :)

Our trip to Real, Quezon with the family. The kids really enjoyed the sun, sand, and waves


A nice staycation in Zambales. It's not as roughed up as when I was still single (camping, trekking, etc.) but still a nice way to spend time with family (minus the traffic)


This time with friends. We were wrapping up a short beach vacation in Batangas and decided to have our meals in Twin Lakes Tagaytay. Special time with my friends and their kids too!


The first ever vlog I made using my videocam. The longest time I spent editing as well! :) I was still learning the editing software but still had fun when I produced this output :p


I hope you enjoyed my vlogs! When I sit and edit these on my computer? I don't actually notice how long I've been there, except when my little baby calls out for his mommy :D 

I'm happy to share these with you because vlogging captures the real me. If you have the time and a nice phone camera especially with Expert & Ultra HD features like #OPPOF5, please try vlogging to document your trips because I'm very sure that it will definitely, also #CaptureTheRealYou :)
