June 18th – July 11th.
For the very first time, all five of us got to visit the motherland, and it was by far the most memorable family trip we’ve had.
We got to see both sides of the family and even had time to bond with them and travel to some of the most beautiful places of the Philippines. We ate the most delicious food together, from street-foods to the restaurants with the most breathtaking views. We got to stay in Manila city itself (my dad’s side) as well as the countryside (of course, where I grew up).
Views from Subic.
The nature views here were unbelievably beautiful. All I can remember is how fresh the air felt against my skin and smelled.
One of the most beautiful places to live in the Philippines.
I remember all my family talked about the entire time we were in Tagaytay was buying our own vacation home here someday. It truly is one of the most beautiful cities in the Philippines if you asked me.
Spontaneous day trip to Subic.
Tagaytay roadtrip with both sides of the family.
Nothing could have been more perfect than our trip here. We were all complete.
Agustin Family Reunion.
Treated my childhood friends/cousins for a day in Tarlac city.
Seeing the big smiles on their faces that day was all I could remember from this day, and that’s all that matters.
Family charity feeding at Kalangitan School.
This was probably one of the most unforgettable moments of the entire trip. The smiles these kids had on their faces was definitely the most heartwarming feeling I’ve felt. I can’t wait to see these kids grow up in the future. I don’t wish for them to remember us, but I do hope for them to remember to do the same and give back when they can.
Cousins from my dad’s side. Hinulugang Taktak falls.
And of course, the coolest and goofiest kuyas and ate ever. Much love for them.
