Thanks to modern technology, I can stay in touch with my family and friends around the globe in real time. And the good thing about it is, as long as you have internet, it's all FREE. How great is that.
I moved to live in Cornwall, UK in 2009. I have been living here for more than 10 years now. There's not a day that I don't miss my family and friends.
My parents lives in the Philippines. My brother Russel and his family lives in Dubai, UAE. My sister Rachel lives in Montreal, Canada. My family are scattered across the globe, in 3 continents.
My childhood bestfriends Catherine Reyes lives in Jeddah, KSA and Emerly Tiongsion in the Philippines.
My university bestfriends Nelinda Cupino Buazon lives in USA and Liezl Manaloto Ceballos in the Philippines. Marilou Gulay Bostock lives in Walton on the Naze, Rachel Yumul in Italy, Ethel Dimayuga Roberto in USA, Maricar Arribe in UAE, Estelman Datu Mamadra in UAE, Florida Penilla in UAE, Myrna Samson Lazareto in the Philippines, Mylah Quintos in Australia and many more...
At the moment, I'm using Facebook Messenger and Google Hangouts Meet to communicate with my family; Facebook Messenger with my childhood friends; Facebook Messenger and Zoom with my university friends.
Since the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) outbreak, the importance of Virtual Communication and Social Media became more apparent. With the "lockdown" and "social distancing", we have been using virtual communication for chatting with family and friends, office and club meetings and others. Social Media is a great way to share important information, news and updates.

Whenever my brother send me photos and videos of my 2 smart and adorable nephew Gabriel Angelo and Miguel Angelo, my heart is very happy. I watched their videos a dozen times. Gabriel and Miguel are very creative and artistic. Their paintings and sketches are excellent. They are also a brilliant film maker and video editor. They are also a good dancer, singer and video player. Multi-lingual too. They speak English, Arabic and French. These 2 boys brings sooo much joy to our family.

I am a huge fan of Social Media. I love facebook, instagram and twitter. But of course, not all people share my feelings. Some even think that Social Media is bad. In my opinion, it's not the Social Media who's bad, but the people who are "mis-using " it. You have to be responsible of your own action. Don't blame it on Social Media.
I love taking photos of beauty and wonder of nature and wildlife. I love going out for a walk around the spectacular and picturesque countryside of Cornwall.
I will keep on posting and sharing my photos with my family and friends. I enjoy doing it and I am happy. I really enjoy looking at the photos of my friend and family too.
I will continue using Social Media and I am really grateful to the founders of all these amazing companies because it keep us connected with our family and friends.

Thanks to Chloe Niles, I had my very first indulgence since the lockdown. An extra large Cornish Pasty for our breakfast. Delivered at 9:30am, freshly baked and still warm from Nile's Bakery. We also got Saffron Buns, Sugar-coated Donuts, Caramel Slices and Loaf Bread. Our house is wafting of this amazing aroma of freshly baked goodies.
A pasty is a baked pastry, a traditional variety of which is particularly associated with Cornwall. It is made by placing an uncooked filling, typically meat and vegetables, on one half of a flat shortcrust pastry circle, folding the pastry in half to wrap the filling in a semicircle and crimping the curved edge to form a seal before baking.
The traditional Cornish Pasty, which since 2011 has Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status in Europe, is filled with beef, sliced or diced potato, swede (turnip) and onion, seasoned with salt and pepper, and baked. Today, the pasty is the food most associated with Cornwall. It is regarded as the national dish and accounts for 6% of the Cornish food economy. Pasties with many different fillings are made and some shops specialise in selling all sorts of pasties.
A Saffron Bun, Cornish tea treat bun or revel bun, is a rich, spiced yeast-leavened sweet bun that is flavoured with saffron and contains dried fruit including currants and raisins similar to a teacake. The main ingredients are plain flour, butter, yeast, caster sugar, currants and sultanas.
At times like this, especially when you're self-isolating coz you're high risk and working from home, you got to have a little bit of indulgence. I'm really grateful to Chloe and Nile's Bakery for delivering this treat.
