a happy new year

Posted on: January 2, 2012

it’s been a long time since i’ve spent the new year with family… so when my dad invited me over i jumped at the chance. it wasn’t a big celebration just some kwentuhan and food and yeah, we camwhored a bit…


me and my dad … he likes wearing these branded clothing in striking colors. he doesn’t look big here but we’re all puny when he stands up. yes, he even thinks my camera is puny… compared to that giant slr of his, anyway. he’s still picky although a bit toned down now.


me and my sister … if my dad loves wild colors, my sister loves pink… she has pink everything, even her kid. hahaha!


my niece tricia … she likes to yawn and all and is quiet most of the time, like auntie melai. i was told i was the quiet one when i was a baby. but she takes after her mother, puro pink. my sister says that she smiles when she sees pink stuff.


dinner … we had a simple dinner of barbecue, spaghetti, kare kare, and beef caldereta. this is like a communal house for my dad’s side of the family so… we have mismatched plates. lol.


by the window … we didn’t have fireworks as my sister’s husband is a firefighter. hahaha! but my sister and i watched our neighbors’ by midnight.


more camwhoring … there were a lot of mirrors in the house, so there. this was in the room dad let me sleep in. i don’t know how it feels exactly… celebrating with family, kind of a mixture of happy and loopy. kasi naman imagine being in a big house with 110 volt sockets and no internet. hahaha! then after further musings, i slept.

yun lang. i hope you had a happy new year!
