I've been a Blogger since 2006!

It's been seven years since I first started on this online journal called BLOG which was inspired by my kids.

I haven't been a regular blogger  as it's been 3 months since the last post. But then, there are no rules as to  how often I should blog.

Blogger is good  - as it hasn't set a quota to post per month to be able to maintain this site. 

On this my 7th year therefore,  I thank Blogspot/Blogger for hosting my writing and photographic efforts. They have modified and changed names and even acquired Google, or Google acquired them but all my blogs are here. 

From my last post, I was raring to post an  update and my recent travel adventures here,  however I have just unpacked my suitcase I received news from home in Baguio, Philippines that my mother was seriously ill in hospital. I dashed home on the next available flight to be with her and to look after her for 3 weeks until she was out of danger and her condition stabilised.

Having said that, it's time to blog about my recent travels and adventures.

I have to yield to a distraction - housemates are watching a qualifying match for FIFA World Cup in Brazil 2014 with Australia (Socceroos) vs Oman and it was a tie, 2-2! I like both teams because I am now an Australian and Oman well,  because 2 of my siblings used to be OFSs  in Oman.

Therefore the travel adventures will start next blog post.

For what it's worth here are some advance photos...
