This is one of my favorite food places. It is called 3 & 93 Dairy Bar. It is called that because its located right at the crossing of Highway 3 & 93.

3 & 93 Ice Cream, Burgers & fries!~ Highway 93 heads down to the south of the border to Montana, USA. This place makes the best hamburgers and fries (I don't eat that much anymore though). This is a free commercial ad right here because I love the place!

This is what it looks like inside the Calgary Airport. The last time I was here was when I arrived from the Philippines back in late Oct 2004. Luke is the one wearing the red shirt.

Today Luke wanted me to experience the Banff Gondolas. To ride it costs $23.50 per adult. He paid for my ticket. The thing is that Luke started to tighten up (he couldn't move) midway up to the viewdeck. It was all work after that. I managed to take some pictures though.

I had no plans of swimming today. Just felt like going out for a drive. Saw this lake and thought I might just hang out there while I smoke my cigarette. The water looked so inviting. Since I had the place all to myself, I went skinny dipping! It was so empowering. So free and one with nature. You should try it sometime! Very therapeutic!

I actually wrote an article for a Catholic Newsletter upon the request of Father Beloso. He asked me to write about my life as a live-in caregiver. My initial reaction was "father! Ako? isang makasalanang tao, hindi ako devout Catholic at church goer - magsusulat para sa isang Catholic newsletter? Ok lang kayo?" My article got published.

My very low moments. Sometimes I feel trapped. Then again don't we all? The truth is - It is sometimes very challenging being a live-in caregiver. (Jeez what am I saying? this is a very dis-empowering thought). I get these feelings sometimes.

Kyla & Edgar. I wanted to cut my hair short. Then someone suggested I should just have it braided. And so I did that. It was a brand new experience. It's so cool! Perfect for the summer. Kyla did my hair.

I lost about 10 lbs this month. Been watching what I ate. I thought, If I felt trapped, that meant I forgot that I had options. So my other options were now to choose to feel better, to lose weight instead of gaining more & have fun with my hair instead of getting tired of it! It's good to remember that I have options. So enough complaining and start doing something about it EDGAR!!!

I love you all,
