How did you celebrate the coming of the New Year?

Here’s a peek at ours…

Currently, my parents are vacationing in Taiwan. Even if they’re not here, we invited relatives to come over our Pasig home and celebrate with us =)

Filipinos have this strange belief that if you jump at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, you’ll become taller. Even after so much jumping through all those years since we were kids, with my sister Heidi & cousin Lingling, our heights only reached about 5 feet. Our boy cousins who never jumped and who thought this tradition was silly were the ones who reached over 6 feet! Life is unfair, don’t you think? Haha =) I also realized that belief isn’t enough to make u grow taller. At least the three of us tried hehe =)

Our feast for tonight. Thanks to all who prepared the food =)

My contribution for dinner… I cooked my own version of Spanish sardines pasta. Would you like to know the recipe? Maybe I’ll share it someday…

My brother-in-law Melvene was a singer of a band named “Snake Jones.” Just to give you an idea how good he is, he sounds like Martin Nievera. He gave a free concert for us that night and it was wonderful. Siyempre “kilig” ang mga girls! [Translation: Of course, the women gushed & were giddy] =)

Singing “Da Coconut Nut,” by Smokey Mountain with matching Hawaiian dancing. Go lang! Even if I suck at singing and dancing haha =) Had some duets also with my cousin OJ…1488181_10153852439257558_5727188420949822635_n 8776_10153852438422558_4264405066283764787_n

My cool aunts Tita Marlene and Tita Miles are our back-up dancers =)

No to firecrackers! My brother-in-law Melvene using a horn instead, at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2016. Let’s scare and drive away the evil spirits and bad luck through our loud noises! Here’s to a 2016 full of blessings =)

Hope you enjoyed your New Year celebration as I did. This 2016, may we get to do even the small things with great love. May we reach our goals and dreams this year =)

Happy New Year!!!
