celebrating what they call the new year

it started early because as yearly, fifi celebrates her birthday. but something was different this year.

ah yeah... the birthday girl was miles, lands, seas and continents away from here. but because she is special to us, we still were obliged to celebrate. (haha joke)

we had the usual pasta, salad, chips but not her you-just-want-to-drool-tacos. and to hide from the loud firecrackers everyone kept themselves busy.

we called fifi and actually woke her up. i didn't mean to. i was just hoping you guys were awake already. i apologize! to you and wency...

so for a very long time pam hasn't been to my room and this was her first time to see it has change since then. when i showed them a gift of my mum's friend - a corset. a funny conversation has just occurred. it goes something like this

me:look at this. gift ng friend ni mama. (showed them the gift)
pam: bat ka may ganito?
me:binigay sa kin eh.
ate(talking to fifi over the phone): ano nga bang tawag diyan? meron si katkat ng corsage.
pam and me: hahwhahahah. corset!
ate: kaya nga nagtanong muna ako eh. hindi ko alam yung name niyan eh.

so we were playing around with the "corsage" and taking pictures of everyone wearing them. and we had a little story telling...

chrissie capicoy has a big problem. she wants to change something. as a geeky person, she wanted to be like everyone else. so she called her fairy godmother and asked for help. she wanted to make her boobs bigger and the fairy godmother granted her wish. but because of the loud bangs outside the house of chrissie, fairy godmother heard her wrong and this is what happened....

we went outside and tried to watch the fireworks and took some pictures of it. it is really hard to take pictures of fireworks.

there were three cowards trying to avoid the loud bangs but still had time to smile to the camera when it flashes us.
but there are four kids that were brave enough and picked up the pieces of fireworks left-over and made a 'happy new year' out of it.
after all the paputok in the neighborhood, we went to eat at lola charit's house. and tito villy popped one of the Asti.

we all raised our glasses and shouted happy new year and smiled for the camera. we got to talk about a lot of stuff and didn't realize it was 3 in the morning.
the next day, mama moke me up to go to mass. and after mass we went to montalban to celebrate the new year with her side. miguel, mama and i headed after lunch and that was around 2:30.

we got there and wasn't really expecting anything until after dinner. and i was right. the party started after dinner. we got to play the usual games like charades, just ask! and family history game.

everyone got prizes and really had fun. when we were playing the family history game, each family was grouped. and miguel and i were a team. and basically we almost lost if mama didn't whisper three of the answers. so we cheated. WHAT?! we really don't know the history of our family. its very hard to remember the names and dates. and besides miggy and i are not that good in history.

we got 60 bucks each for playing a good game. and we had our family portrait. had our exchange gifts and went home. it was fun even if i only agreed to go there because they said they rented a videoke! waaahh!
