15 So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.
16 In my search for wisdom and in my observation of people’s burdens here on earth, I discovered that there is ceaseless activity, day and night. 17 I realized that no one can discover everything God is doing under the sun. Not even the wisest people discover everything, no matter what they claim. – Ecclesiastes 8:15-16 NLT
FUN. Defined as a source of enjoyment, amusement, diversion, playfulness. I believe that there’s a time for everything and that includes having fun. Over the years, I captured some photos of my family having fun even in the most mundane routine task of daily living. Some have secrets (for us only) why we considered them so amusing. Everything here is priceless!
This was during a heavy storm that made electrical posts in many areas within Metro Manila collapsed, thus many people experienced brownouts for days. In the Philippines, we know how to cook rice using wood or charcoal and pop open a canned food then a meal is done.
It was an all white snow white kind of day and was our first time to visit a park with snow in Utah. No matter how cold it was for us, Asians, it’s still a nice day to play and run. Those were the days when you can bring your tripod and take unlimited photos without kids grumbling. Just let them be and we’re good!
Silliness at its best. After a very long day driving, we arrived at our hotel in Flagstaff, Arizona. We rushed to go to the nearby theme park. Upon arrival, we learned that they just closed. Hah! Then we thought of having a nice dinner. Ice cream. Yeah! On a scorching heat weather, we felt like we’re inside the oven so this was the best option. @ Swensen’s, AZ.
How can it not be so fun when you have a yummy bibingka (rice cake) and Hunger Games book while others are having pretzels on a plane to spend winter in Colorado?
What happened after this was a classic, family joke that will be kept as a secret between the four of us.
