Greetings!


I didn't realize that among the few visitors/friends of my blog, there are some who wonder how I look. Well....wonder no more and be disappointed LOL. My wife and I wish all of you A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!





Both photos were taken during our recent riverboat cruise. My receding white hair is a dead giveaway of my age LOL. I'm the oldest in our group, kasama daw ako ni Bonifacio ng sumigaw and pinunit ang kanyang cedula sa Balintawak LOL.

Sir Bert! Finally, na-pressure ka din no? haha! :) It's nice to see you and your wife. Merry Christmas and more travels to you both next year! :)

BlogusVox said...

At last! The well traveled bertN... in person! : )

bertN said...

Mhe-anne Ojeda,don't let them know I was with Bonifacio, especially my wife, who thinks she's older than I am that's why she married me daw, LOL.

Reena, malakas kayo talaga sa akin.

Photo Cache, keep on traveling and keep sharing your travels with us.

BlogusVox, nakakadisappoint hindi ba? Happy New Year!

How lovely to connect face to blog. Or blog to face. Thank you for giving in to pressure! Lol. Your Bonifacio secret is safe with me. Happy New Year and all the best to you and wifey!

bertN said...

lifeisacelebration, I'm glad my Bonifacio secret is safe with you. Now you know why I'd rather be behind the camera than in front of it LOL. Thanks for your visit.

Best post ever!

Thank you for sharing your very personal photos, Bert! Blessed is your wife to have you! No pun intended!

Thank you so much for being so generous and constant reader and commenter on my posts. Thank you for sharing your fantastic and inspiring travels to us! Believe it or not, one of your comments about bring my son (and wife) to my work place here is the best and the most profound I received to date. If I could only give an award for most amusing and sincere comments, it would be yours bar none.

Manigong Bagong Taon po! At naway kaloob ng Maykapal na magkita tayo sa Amerika or sa ibang parte ng mundo. *wishful thinking*

PS : Dear Mrs. BertN, You're blessed Maam to have a husband like him. You look great together, Maam!

hi sir bert!

Like Doc Gelo, thank you for always visiting my website. I appreciate you taking time to read my rants.

Akala ko talaga sir, Amerikano kayo. hehe. So nice to see a ace in this blog.

May you hand your wife have a happy new year!

The Nomadic Pinoy said...

Finally! seeing the man behind the blog makes it easier for me to spot you in a sea of humanity. thanks for sharing - this I know is quite personal for you.

Happy new year Bert. All the best in 2013!

bertN said...

Sabbatical Gal, wishing you and your family a great new year. Thanks for dropping by.

RJ, wala ng "po" lalo lang akong tumatanda LOL. Take care and be sure to hang on to your wallet when you get propositioned near Victoria Station! Btw, I'm not speaking from experience LOL.

docgelo, I'll have to tell my wife that she's blessed to have me. That's already two of us and counting. Btw, I'm been counting since the day we got married...that was more than 40 years ago.

bertN said...

soloflight Ed, wala ng "sir", bert is fine with me. I enjoy visiting your blog. Keep on blogging. Happy New Year!

The Nomadic Pinoy, all the best to you in 2013 and all the years to come. Keep on traveling and don't get tired sharing your adventures with us.

Rizalenio said...

Happy 2013, Sir bertN and to your wife! Wish you both good health po. :)

bertN said...

Rizalenio, para sa New Year ko wala ng "po" at "Sir" baka ma spoiled lang akong masyado. Have a great New Year!

sheng said...

Happy New Year. It's always a good thing to imagine a face behind the words. Happy New Year to you and the wife. May you have a life filled with great memories ahead because of your cruises, and wishing I could come and cruise with you. Hehehe, enjoy 2013!

bertN said...

sheng, Happy New Year din sa iyo at iyong pamilya. You are always welcome to cruise with us but we are not as much fun to travel with dahil puro kami oldies LOL.

pusa said...

bertN said...

George said...

I'm envious -- I would be delighted to have hair that was receding -- white or otherwise!

Aleah | SolitaryWanderer.com said...

Your wife is so beautiful. You're lucky, Tito Bert! Well, actually you're both very lucky to have each other. Hope I can find my (travel) partner soon, too :)

bertN said...

George, I hope my hair or what's left of it outlives me LOL.

Aleah, I'm not going to tell my wife you said she is beautiful because it will cause my wallet to lose weight LOL.I'm sure your dream travel partner or partner for life is within the range of your vision you are just not aware of it.

Ebie said...

I really enjoyed reading your travels especially your cruises. Its a learning experience, to pick which ones I would choose in the later years.

I might have seen a glimpse of you fishing in the Long Beach area. You both look pretty good!

Salamat po.

bertN said...

Ebie, I used to fish in Long Beach at the pier, breakwater and on party boats but since I retired, I have not done much fishing anywhere other than some lakes where the view make up for the luck of fisherman-friendly fish.
