I’m sorry for being quiet here for more than a month, but I guess the only reasons I can give are a mix of blogger’s block and laziness. Yes, I know that I still have the rest of our Canada vacation pending and everything else that happened since then until now so I can’t say that I didn’t have anything to blog about… but whenever I was in front of the computer, I just couldn’t think of any words to type or how to construct a post. I would type a few sentences and lines, delete, re-type, and delete again (repeat 10 times!), and then finally just give up with the hopes that I would be able to organize my thoughts later. It was frustrating, I tell you. But last night as I lay awake until 4am (augh, insomnia!), I decided that whatever happens, I have to start blogging again.
To tell you the truth, I missed blogging. This has been my online diary for the past few years, and I’ve been keeping it to store all my memories in. So if I stopped, if I kept procrastinating, if I let my blogger’s block win, I would forget all the special moments I wanted to remember. And of course, I wouldn’t want that to happen.
Which is why I’m back. Not with a bang, though. I’ll try to blog regularly, but what with the holidays coming up and so many activities, events, and celebrations to attend to (plus spending quality time with the family), I can’t promise. With any luck, I’m hoping to update this blog at least every week. Fingers crossed!
So, let’s continue with our trip to the north, shall we? ☺
On Wednesday, we all woke up as usual for another day of touring. This time, though, the next place to visit was not in Canada, but the US of A! We were all going to Seattle for the day! Woohoo!
Crossing the Blaine Washington border was a breeze this time; no more Secondary investigation was required. The officer just checked and scanned our passports, called our names, and asked why we were going to the US. Our answer? To eat at Jollibee! Yes, seriously, that’s what my brother answered. Well, that was one of the main reasons anyway, so why lie about it?! ☺
drive the car over the weekend to and from Alouette Lake, but since we were on foreign territory, I was still nervous that Hubby was behind the wheel. I needn’t have worried, though. It was a smooth ride and we all enjoyed the road trip; most of us managing to catch up with some snooze.

Just in case you're wondering, the mall had other restaurants inside: Chowking, Red Ribbon, Grill City, and Tokyo Tokyo. There was even a supermarket named Seafood City. Yup, most (if not all) were from the Philippines. Maybe that's why we saw many Pinoys there.

Don't worry, I still have more stories and photos to share of our Canada trip. Wait for it! ☺
