I have been living in United States for 9 years now. Have visited my family in the Philippines 2 times since...once with my son and the last time was when my grandmother died last year. I tell you, I still miss my family a lot especially my parents. On summer of next year, we are going for a vacation there with my son an hubby and everyone is excited including me! Hubby haven't met my family yet due to unavoidable circumstances, and thank goodness, finally they will meet in person at last! That would be a great vacation, I think! Much better than Branson vacations is all I can say. We would go to the beach and maybe even go to Baguio City which is the summer capital of the Philippines. I would love to go to Branson though someday for I heard that it is a great place to visit any time of the year.
