It’s our third time to celebrate New Year at our Bacoor home with both of our families joining us. As usual, it was one fun celebration. Yours truly, being the house manager, was in-charge of the cooking. For my sanity, I made sure our Media Noche menu was as simple but enjoyable as it could be. I was not in the mood to bake so I just bought a chocolate cake from S&R which turned out to be good and super sulit for its P399.95 price. I am definitely buying another one when my godchildren visit me this coming weekend!
Anyway, our long weekend was as fun and relaxing as we wished for. The hubby and I, along with Mame, drove to Bacoor as early as Friday afternoon. We then spent Saturday making a trip to two supermarkets (S&R Imus and SM Bacoor) to buy food items and round fruits for Media Noche. The rest of the family would arrive on Sunday and the hubby and I would make another trip to the supermarket (this time at the nearby Robinsons’) to buy stuff I forgot to get the day before, haha. An hour before the clock struck twelve, we were already dressed up and taking photos (individually and as a group) because that’s what people do when together and celebrating something, hahaha.
Our tiny house erupted with laughter all throughout the night until everybody went to bed early morning of the first day of 2018 to get some sleep. Magsama ba naman ang mga kalog naming nanay at samahan pa ng mga maloko naming tatay at bungisngis na mga kapatid, ewan ko na lang! Ang saya ng salubong namin sa bagong taon. Alam ko kayo rin, kaya kwento naman dyan! 🙂
Because we still did not have work on January 2nd, the hubby and I were able to touch base with friends. First was when we attended the birthday party of our friends’ children (it was a joint celebration) in Dasmariñas, Cavite. The second one was when we had dinner at Taguig with the hubby’s two college friends and their respective spouses. We hope to meet up with more friends this year because you know, life is short and friends make life sweeter (and longer, I guess).Here are some snapshots of our New Year weekend:
Happy 2018, friends! 🙂
May you choose happiness always,
