Memorable pictures of people, places and events......that of 2004!

2004 is indeed a very colorful year for me (and my family as well)...lots of things happened this year, whether nice or bad still, I can say that it has been a fun year and I'm looking forward to next year and the years after that.

2004 started "big-time" when my Ate (what we call older sister in the phils) visited us here in holland last february--I have not seen her for years (coz we were not able to visit phils. for so long now) ...she stayed with us for almost 3 months and it was definitely a lot of fun, we visited a lot of places --- which made it more unforgettable not only for me but for her as well.

Amsterdam --- our first stop!

Central station in Amsterdam in which during that time was still under construction....busy, busy..... Posted by Hello

Paris....The most romantic place I've ever been to ---who wouldn't wanna go here? I've been a couple of times to France but not exactly here but in Disneyland-Paris. It's an incredible place --- we were not able to climb the Eiffel Tower though bec the line was really really long --- there were a lot of people in-line so, we just took pictures and proceeded to other places that we still wanna see.

Monaco ....... It was indeed a very magical place especially for the rich and famous. With it's very high cost of living and the only place I've seen (yet :)) with lots of Porche (and all the other expensive cars you can name) driving on the streets, and don't forget the yachts and the houses on the hills. It was an unbelievable vacation for us in an expensive hotel and a helicopter ride from monaco to nice -france airport......Talk about Royalty!

Monaco..isn't it a beautiful site? breathtaking, I would say! Posted by Hello

I guess I'm not gonna make any new year's resolution this time.....I've been blessed with a great husband, 3 wonderful kids and with everything I have today (may it be small or big), I am truly thankful --- I just wanna wish my family good health and that we all stay happy together.

Goodbye 2004 (or should I say "thank you") and ....Welcome 2005!
