We Travel, We Eat, We Bond

If you were asked, how do you bond with your family? What would your answer be?

As for me, two things come to mind: travelling and eating together. Why travelling? Because my family members as well as my husband’s are based in different parts of the Philippines and yes, even abroad. To bond together, travel has to be part of the picture.

And when we are finally together, we eat. That’s right. Isn’t that part of Filipino culture and even Asian culture? Ah, no family bonding is complete without those shared meals. Over delicious food, we then share stories, jokes, new insights, challenges, dreams. And true enough some of the best photos I have had with the family have been taken near or around a dining table πŸ™‚

Below are a couple of shots of our precious family bonding moments. And yes, we were at the dining table πŸ™‚
