2013 will soon be over, and for this Christmas season, the best gift our family could have asked for has been a year marked with travel, adventure, fun and discovery. It has been truly a year in which we carried on with our lives delighting in God's gifts.
Time has flown so swiftly that I now find myself almost on my third year with the Philippine Consulate General in New York as an assistant in the political/economic section. Meanwhile, my parents continue to realize the blessings of retirement in their tranquil environs at Alabang Hills in Metro Manila. While lending their time to their Foundations of choice: Philippine Ambassadors' Foundation, Inc., Philippine Ambassadors' Ladies Association; Department of Foreign Affairs Retirees' Foundation, Inc., they were still able to explore places where no Gaa has treaded before.
