Last day of 2012

Last year was full of family bonding albeit my sisters were living in different sides of the Metro and another one was living 1500 miles away. It was great to spend the last day of 2012 with them too (it has always been this way since my existence and I don’t want it to change just yet).

My cousins were with us to celebrate NYE too! My family enjoyed the Ayala street party on 2011 so we decided to do the same thing and we chose a nearer hotel this time. Somerset Olympia was a good choice. I love the countdown party feel and the crowd around is nice too. I hate crowds but NYE in Ayala Ave, Makati is an exception.

Here’s for a wacky 2013! :D Shangri-la Hotel was a nice background.

Hoping NYE will always be as great as last year’s.




For 2013

I have never made a serious New Year’s Resolutions for myself. The only times I try to think about those are when the teachers ask for one once we get back in school after the holiday break – gradeschool and highschool memories. I have never given a damn about it because it feels like those are the stuff that are meant to be forgotten for the whole year and would only be recalled when you’re about to make a new one. And sometimes, it will even serve as a blueprint for all the failures that you have been for a year.

Yesterday, it was nice to stumbled upon my 10-year-old brother’s New Year’s resolution. I felt proud of him though he has to know that share is not an adjective so he can’t say shareful. (:

For the first time in my life I would want to grab the chance this New Year has to offer – a chance to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. And for a change, I will have a New Year’s resolution and I know that my brother would not mind if I copy his.

Be a better person. Be generous. Try not to hurt anyone. Be ready for anything.



Babay Z’s polka dots bday bash

Zabria, my eldest sister’s unica hija, turned one on December of 2012. My eldest sister came up of having the polka dots theme for Z’s birthday. It was nice to get away from the usual Disney princess or Barbie them for a girl’s children party. We also made the event intimate- only close relatives and friends came.
