Travel this and Travel that

For some reason my friends in Germany are into Karaoke as much as they are into golf! Being a travel agent, I do get weird questions asking about where the best place to go for certain things in a particular city. One that I got a few months back was asking what Golf shop is best available in Germany. I had to do a bit of research for that of course, since I’ve only been to Germany once and have never been asked this question before. Anyway, I found an extensive online shop for my friend. I have also offered to tell him where Golfkurse or Golfkurs Platzreife is (just in case he’d ask).

I wish I could travel Germany extensively so that I can be a better travel agent. That’s one good thing about my profession, we do get to go on familiarization tours. Although at the moment, there are no offers to travel to Europe. Majority of our educational offers are to Asia or the South Pacific islands, I just wish I could see more of Europe again! It has been a while since I’ve been to Europe, or been on an educational! Although now, I know these dreams will have to be put on a bit of a hold since we are expecting our first born. Perhaps in about a year and a half when I go back into the workforce and back into my consultant job I could snag myself a work sponsored free trip to Europe. For now, I should satisfy myself with online researches and daydreaming about visiting that far away land! Sometimes I think if I envy the younger ladies at work who have been grabbing all the chance they could get to travel, whether work or self expense. As much as I haven’t really been traveling that much when I was single, I don’t regret it all. One day I can still travel the world with hubby and kids in tow. For now, thoughts on motherhood is what’s on my mind, together with local travel that is.

Bubba shopping : Nappy kit

I never thought shopping/online shopping for baby things can keep me busy!! I have been browsing through websites and just bookmarking a lot of possible baby stuff! Exciting! This is something I have never ever done in the past. At past 30 years of age, I still get to do things for the first time which keeps life interesting.

My cool stuff for today is a nappy kit! I guess for just an hour or two trip to the grocery or town, this would be quite handy. And its great they have it in different colours! Maybe I should add this onto my gift registry.. hehe. Or, just send the weblink to my mum :) Oh, if you want to ship it to me, it's from B.Box the essential baby box!

Raising bilingual kids

I am pretty proud about our eldest being able to speak my mother tongue (Filipino). As young as one year old we taught her to speak Tagalo...
