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

We do the same too. We travel a lot to visit our relatives and ofcourse never makakalimutan ang mala fiestang kainan <3

Ahh… family bonding and food tripping– one of the things I so missed doing when I am home! Food trip jud among target dayon ba unya bibo kay tibuok pamilya. 😀 Makamingaw oi!
I can tell you had a wonderful Bohol visit, sis! 🙂
This is nice. I agree, i’s very much a part of Asian culture, especially of the Filipino culture.
That is a great way to bond with family 🙂
Visiting for 366 BPC!

Whenever we are together, we eat and converse just about anything over dinner. Nice photos with the family. BPC hopping here.

Nothing can compare the fun of having a family bonding every now and then 🙂 Food trip ever 🙂
I suppose we can never go wrong with eating. It’s a universal bonding moment, I believe. 🙂 Full stomachs and happy hearts…nothing could beat that right?
nothing beats the excitement traveling with your loved ones…
eating, watching movies and favorite TV programs are my family’s ways of bonding together; these are precious moments i cherish
its sad to eat alone, and its better for family to do things together 🙂 nice pictures!
Family bonding is really incomplete without the FOOD!
Nice bonding time. Eating also is one of our family bonding time.
Eating along with your family and friends is the best. The talks, the stories while eating, nothing beats it.
Yup, I agree with you, Sis! Eating and traveling together are the best bonding moments for families. We have the same way of bonding together. 🙂
Travelling + Bonding + Eating = BEST COMBO EVER! I love hanging out with the family and travelling (even if it means I have to suffer motion sickness). 😀
We bond whenever there is special occasion so that means lot of foods. lol. i also like to travel with my family, hope we have an out of town vacation.
Wow, you’ve got a lovely, huge family!
very true! whenever there’s a family bonding, there are always foods on the table.
Food has brought so many families closer to each other. This is the best family bonding I’ve known through the years 😀
I love family bonding too… time seems tick so fast and you are wishing not to end that moment.
It is my goal to travel with my whole family. To bring my kids to places that God created wonders. We’ve started with our of town trips first then if there’s extra budget then maybe to farther places. 🙂
Most of my family are already here so we hardly have to travel to see family. But eating is a big part of family bonding! 🙂
Hey, I live in Butuan. Small world. 😀
We don’t do travelling. But we sure love to eat. 🙂 It’s the best bonding time we can have.
I miss family bonding :c yung as in kumpleto! iba talaga yung saya pag ganun!
That’s what we do when we bond too. 🙂
Travelling and enjoying good food together is definitely a great way to bond with family and friends.. 🙂 Cheers to more travelling and eating!
Traveling with the family is really a great bonding experience. The kids also get to know other cultures.
wow thats fun! 🙂 i love to travel with family too..
Dining out would be my answer! We have 3 family members who are working abroad so every time they come home, we make sure we celebrate my dining out.
ooh, how i wish i have a big family. family bonding is a lot of fun.
Wow! You have been in Bohol sis… great know. I am from Bohol but now here in Norway. This is really a good bonding , relaxation and of course great adventure.
Oh! It’s true most of our family “photoshoots” also revolve around a dining table. hahaha why is this funny to me for some reason XD
thats our favorite form of bonding too.. which is eating out..
This is really true. When we travel with our family, we always share our laughter together during meal time…Travel and Eating together with the family is a real bonding time.
Great family bonding!
We do eat a lot, but rarely travel nowadays.
With limited budget we just choose to bond and share stories over our favorite food.
I’m looking forward to a great family bonding this week. 🙂
Food is certainly a common bonding experience 🙂
nice family bonging 🙂 having family salo-salo is how we bond too 🙂
For us its also eating together, and also singing together with my father playing the guitar and us singing aling with him.. 🙂
