This family blog usually gets left behind when everyone is busy. Updating it on a weekly basis just does not get squeeze in the schedule. So February went by without us sharing our trip to Sumilon Island and our early five day summer trip to Boracay.
And the culprit, for the busy excuse.... business.
Yes, business is booming and I mean projects have been keeping me sane and insane.
We got two residential projects on the way, one just started with the stake out last week and the other is to start in two weeks time. Plus one more interior fit-out project for a culinary school also to start pretty soon.
a residential project for a lawyer couple.
a residential project for a good friend.
an interior fit-out project for a culinary arts school.
hope to close a deal on two more interior projects. cross fingers.

Here we go again.
So I thought I could keep this blog updated at least once a week for this year, but you see time is scarce.
The start of the year dump in a lot of stuff right away. The past two weeks alone had me juggling two new projects. horray for me!
I can't help but be grateful for this January blessings, I hope it will be like this until the next year. yay!
So allow me to shout Pit Senyor! As a way of thanking.

For the souls who search for peace on earth.It's the Christmas Star that lights the way ♪♫
The Sunday before Christmas we had dinner at Maribago Bluewater Resort in Mactan. They had this fountain area filled with lighted white parols. It was so lovely, the boys just had to take a picture underneath the stars.
♪♫ For every year the Christmas tree,Brings to us all both joy and glee.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, Such pleasure do you bring me. ♪♫
Every after the Christmas Eve Mass or Misa de Aguinaldo, when the family arrives at home, we make it a point to have the yearly family portrait with the Christmas tree behind us. This has been the second Christmas with Tristan around; unlike last year, the second born now knows how to behave and pose during family picture taking.
♪♫ It's the greatest time of year, and it's here, help me celebrate it.
With everybody here, friends so dear, let me simply state it.
Joy to the world and everyone, lift up your hearts and feel the love.
It's our favorite way, to spend the holiday. ♪♫
Christmas is always best spent with family. On the strike of twelve, when you are with loved ones - the noche buena is not just a sumptuous meal together, it's a joyous celebration of love and of life. Christmas day lunch has that same feeling too. It is really the season to be jolly.
The Corteses wish you too had a wonderful Christmas.

It's that time of year once again, and what a wonderful song this is! It gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling - full of hope and promise, and above all, of love. In case you were wondering how The Corteses fared this year, here are a few updates.
