Happy Month of May: Family Celebrations

Completely unrelated to this post but I had to share: It was a longer day at work than usual, especially for a Friday. But the real bummer is when I arrived home my 5-month old Asus Chromebook won't turn on. I tried the basic troubleshooting of plugging it in and hold the power for 60 seconds. I called Asus and I am under warranty for the next 24 months which is great but the repair process takes a week + shipping time AND I am leaving for the Philippines on Friday. So...

An Hour at White Rock Beach

I am, finally, all caught up with my posts and can now share about my adventures this month. White Rock, BC Canada Last Saturday, it was our youngest siblings birthday. We had lunch at Olive Garden (unlimited bread sticks!) and after that we went to White Rock Beach. This is our second time here but it will be the first time for our only brother since he almost always have work during the weekend. Beautiful sunny day at White Rock Beach Lots of seagulls It was a short (1 hour) trip. We walked along the pier, had some ice cream to go from The White Coffee and Ice Cream, and went back to the car since we only paid 1-hour worth of parking space. Long road and view of the mountains from the horizon It was a great day spent with my parents and siblings. I can't wait to go back to the beach and spend time swimming and enjoying the sun.
