YES, WE DID IT!
Exactly a month ago my Better Half crossed Ironman Zurich finish line, it’s his 4th full distance Ironman race, such an awesome accomplishment and we’re super proud of him! The hard training days, his perseverance and determination definitely pays off, we could see that he was in good spirit and having fun throughout the race (as usual he stopped and chat us up whenever he saw us cheering from the spectators side, too funny). This time around he has 2 of his buddies joining the race and their family were also coming so for once we have friends to cheer with, happy days!
The day prior the Ironman race Little Miss did the Ironkids run and I surprised myself by joining the Iron Girl fun run ( for the record, I don’t run but my better half said it’s a great start for my first run and hopefully not the last!). One thing that I know for sure, it felt pretty amazing to approach the finish line and seeing my loved ones cheering for me, unforgettable ♥️
Last but not least, Little Miss and I had the best spectators experience at IM Zurich 2017 with the VIP access, our first time watching the swim start from the water thanks to their boat service (normally you can only watch from the swim start which nearly impossible), the shuttle arrangements throughout Race Day was brilliant, so amazing to be part of cheering crowds at the famous Heart Break Hill, really enjoyed the delicious spreads with free flow sparkling wine provided throughout the day and the VIP staffs were very helpful, Anything Is Possible.

The Primary Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) Games last weekend were hosted by Jerudong International School (JIS) in Brunei Darussalam. Around 200 student athletes from six schools were taking part in the Games – JIS; British School Manila; Dulwich College, Shanghai; Garden International School, Kuala Lumpur; Harrow International School, Bangkok; and Kellett School, Hong Kong. My better half and I went to Brunei to cheer on our daughter.
On first day in Athletic, Ariel did 800m sprint (PB at 5th place), 4×100 relay (Silver), Discus Throw (Gold) and Shuttle Relay (Silver).
2nd Day is Swimming in the morning, Ariel won Bronze in 200m IM, Silver in 50m Butterfly, Gold in 100m Medley Relay, Gold in 200m Free Relay and Gold in Tyre Relay. After lunch break they played T-Ball, Ariel’s Team won 5 straight matches (Gold), Miguel and I were in awe with their efforts and brilliant team spirits, super proud parents.
3rd Day was Football, Ariel’s Team won 2 games, 2 draw and 1 lost resulting in Bronze medal, absolutely fantastic!
Last but not least, British School Manila won Silver in the overall athletics and swimming, truly amazing achievement since they had a change in opposition and what was a significantly stronger group (compared to last year).
Thank you to all amazing Coaches, wonderful BSM Teachers & splendid Supporters, congratulations Ariel and Team, we are very, very proud of you all.

It’s been 2 weeks since we’re back from our fun-tastic Feuermann’s Family Reunion in Thailand. I’m going through all our photos from so many different devices (cameras, camera phone, drone, waterproof camera, you name it we’ve used it!) every single one of them were priceless and obviously nowhere near done compiling them. Here’s a few snippets of the trip taken with my iPhone, will try to do a few photo blogs of some great adventures that the 15 of us did in another blog soon.
Last but not least, my New Year resolution is to enjoy everything on the present moment. Also please note that I’m grateful for every single one of you that make the time to read my random musings, wishing you all an amazing 2017.
Summer in beautiful British Columbia is magical ❤️
We stayed out enjoying the warm weather, beautiful surroundings and delicious food all day ( thanks to Mr Golden Sun it’s daylight till 9 pm!). Loving our family time and being active together, one thing that we missed a lot in Manila.
If you never been to this part of the world please plan your trip soon, highly recommend it.
Hello from New York,
We are enjoying our summer holiday in the Big Apple, the weather has been amazing, blue skies with a few sprinkles every now and then, spent a lot of time outdoors and loving it!
Last weekend we traveled to Lake Placid in upper state of New York, stayed there for a few days for Ironman Lake Placid event and had fun-tastic time. My daughter joined the Ironkids running series race and my husband did the Ironman race, they both did very well, so proud of them! Lake Placid is such a stunning place, awesome spot for Ironman race (very well organized and spectators friendly), highly recommend it.
Drove back to the city couple days ago and we’ve got a few more days in NYC to catch up with friends and family. Very grateful for every precious moments, will keep you posted with our next destination, enjoy the photos.
