December 31 – January 1
Happy New Year!
Our new year was just low key. Lesser people than what we used to have in the past. But we still prepared a few dishes in case there are visitors on New Year’s lunch.
My niece will be joining a Math contest so I helped her review a little. Her reviewer contains all worded problems. Worded problems are now for Grade 1 students?! The questions are tricky that I cannot even get the correct answers on first attempt. Tsk tsk tsk.
I asked my brother to run to the grocery for the things we need the following day.
I went up to my sister’s place before 12 AM for the bonfire, bbq, hotdogs, marshmallows and fireworks watching. We don’t need our own fireworks display because a lot of our faraway neighbors take care of that hehehe. Thanks, neighbors! I did not take pictures anymore because I want to focus on just watching and enjoying those fireworks.
We siblings, except for my brother’s family in Tagaytay, gathered at my place on January 1 for lunch. My auntie, uncle and 2 of their kids joined us too. My cousin’s kid came over too.
I prepared salad. My other siblings prepared their own food and just brought it at my house for all of us to feast on.
I went out in the afternoon for mass but had to go home right away for fear that there will be no transportation available if I stayed out longer hehehe.
January 1 was spent eating, exchanging stories, sleeping and eating again hehehe.
Happy New Year again!
