An Aunt’s Pride

Yep! I am so proud of my nephew! XD

I told you guys already about how we had a Photowalk in Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City.

What I didn’t tell you is that my nephew won 2nd place in our Photo Challenge!

Me so proud! I almost had a heart attack because I was so happy! Maybe I should consider bringing a medical computer cart to check my vitals during photowalks. XD

I’ve been giving my nephew several lessons on how to shoot using his father’s DSLR, and my good ol’ Point and Shoot, and I’m happy to see that he’s doing great. So great, in fact, that I lost to him that day, having only 1 vote. XD

But hey, I’m just happy to see that he’s a great photographer, and that he has an eye for photography. I’ve encouraged him to keep at it, and hopefully, he’ll be a better photographer than I am.

Keep up the good work, dude! When we have another photowalk, I’ll make sure to bring you along again!

The Future Photographer?

Actually, that’s my nephew who has recently been into photography. He is so awesome.

And he’s so grown up! Sheesh! One of these days, I’m going to have to buy him some new parish clothing… he’s reaching my height already. ~_~

I took this photo when we ate out after his Elementary graduation. Sheeesh. The kid is in high school already… I can still remember when he was two years old, when we were sitting at the front seat of my mother’s car, singing “Eyes On Me” by Faye Wong while we waited for her to finish her shopping. Those were the days. T_T

He’s growing up way too fast for me. It makes me feel so old. XD

But, I’m still a bit happy, especially since I was able to teach him some photography. I actually envy him a bit, since he can use his parents’ Canon DSLR camera when he’s taking pictures. I hope he can harness his skills in photography, I could tell he has the eyes for it. Maybe when he reaches the proper age, I can be bring him to our photo walks.

Hmm… a 12-year old kid, capturing photos with a DSLR camera borrowed from his parent… it kind of reminds me of me when I was still using my dad’s SLR camera fifteen years ago. It kind of made me envious that he can use the DSLR, but then again, I have my own Point and Shoot camera that has yet to fail me. Hahaha. Besides, like my friends used to say, “it’s not the bow, it’s the Indian.” XD

See You In 2 Years!

*my nephew, Alexis… HE IS SUCH A CUTIE! ^_^*

No, not me… my cousin! XD

Yep, my cousin Alex is heading back to London to raise their children and continue with their healthcare jobs.

Awww me so sad. T_T

Luckily, my mom was able to buy some gifts for their children. She gave my niece, Alexa, some really nice clothes, and she gave Alexis a really, really, REALLY cute hat.

Hats like these are really cuter on kids than on adults… hahaha! I should know, I wear those kind of hats all the time.

We won’t be able to see them again for two or three years, so by then Alexa would be around 8, and Alexis would be 3 years old. Waaahh… they grow up so fast!

Anyway, see yah in two years guys! We’ll be waiting for you! ^_^v

My New Nephew!!!

Hey! I have another nephew!

This here is baby Alexis, and he is my cousin’s second child. His sister, Alexa, is one of my favorite nieces because she’s a cute kid. I had the pleasure of riding with them, along with my Auntie Em and Cousin Gem. Alexis was being carried by his grandmom, while I sat beside Alexa while she sat on her brother’s ergo baby carrier.

He is so cute! XD

Alexa and Alexis were both born in London, where their dad (my cousin), Alex works. He’s a nurse there, along with his wife, Elvie, who wasn’t able to come to our celebrations in Pangasinan because she ran out of leave from work. (Don’t worry, Ate Elvie, I ate enough food to fill your place XD).

There was a point in time when I had a tally of how many nephews and nieces I have, but now I lost count! Harharhar.

The whole “Alex” family will be leaving for London again soon (huhuhu) and I’m going to miss Alexa and Alexis a lot. I just hope that they would still be the same happy (slightly older) kids when I see them again, and I hope they would still be the same happy kids that I know. XD
