Iloilo: Batang Pinoy National Champs 2012

Just came back a week ago from accompanying a daughter to Iloilo for the Batang Pinoy National Championship. It's J's first time to travel for a swim meet, and she was naturally excited for it. The 5-day sojourn practically seemed like a mini-vacation for her. Imagine, not having to go to school, and being in the company of her good friends. What more can a girl ask for?

In a way, it was also a vacation for me... 4 days of not having to drive/tutor/cook. Could pass for a bakasyon grande... hahaha!

On the scheduled day of the opening of the Batang Pinoy games, Typhoon Sendong was also expected to make landfall in the Visayas, causing not a few athletes to be stranded in their hometown. Hence, the games had to be moved a day later, leaving us all with a free day!

Inspite of the typhoon warning and the storm signal that was raised all over the Visayas, the sun dominated the sky in our part of the province.

And before you now it, we are on our way home. Just as well, since I was starting to miss the husband and two younger ones already.:)
