Once we made our selection, we went back home and had some afternoon snack - Filipino style. We ate at the terrace where we had a relaxing view of the neighborhood. As I was feeling a bit nostalgic, I decided to catch up with a friend back at home over Skype. (Ahhh, the wonders of technology!)

With my tummy full, I decided to spend the rest of the day reading a good book in my Kindle. Though I may not have gone to a special or new place that day, I still thought that it was a day that was well spent. After all, no vacation would be complete without a relaxing day at home. Sometimes, our days could be so busy and fast-paced that we forget to appreciate the simple things in life. A home cooked meal with the company of family, exchanging stories and laughing their hearts out, is what most people take for granted. Getting together in the family room to watch rented movies may not be much for some, but it was definitely enough for me. These kinds of bonding moments are the ones that I treasure the most and would fondly think of, many years from now.
How about you? When was the last time you spent your day at home just bonding with your family?
