It’s Indeed a Happy New Year 2017!

Happy New Year, Philippines! Happy New Year, world!

Every year has to end to give way for a new one. It is an annual event that most people look forward to, wherever they are in the world.  It is also believed to be one of the most magical occasions of the year where friends unite and families get together to celebrate. Big or small, a New Year always call for a celebration.

I’ve checked Facebook (the world’s most popular social media site I’ve known) just a few minutes before the clock strikes twelve last night and it’s as if everyone was excited and has a good reason to celebrate and to look forward for the New Year 2017. Whatever that reason, it reflects on their individual timeline posts, particularly photos on the preparations made for the New Years Eve.

I did the same too, about a minute or two or the moment I’ve heard series of popping fireworks around – an indication that the New Year has come. Here’s how New  Year celebration went on our part of the world.

What makes it special is that I did almost all the preparations and just enjoyed every bit of it.

One reason why I took most of the prepping part is because most of what we’ve had on our table are fruits of my cooking experiments which (with the help of my new kitchen buddy, my new KYOWA Electric Oven), fortunately turned out well. Thanks to the free online tutorials too! 😀

Details of each recipe shall be up on my food blog very soon.

Part of my “overspending” (I don’t know why but it’s a fact) late last year was the preparation for this occasion. I’d rather like to think that the last Christmas and this is a part of the complete package of trying to bring a memorable celebrations that together we, as family can recall on to in the coming years along with the hope that the new year will bring joy and abundance not only to us but to others as well.

Christmas 2016 and the Happy Souls

The time has come and the wait is over. It’s Christmas once again and while wishing everyone around the world a Merry Christmas, the random photos below expresses how it went on our side and how much delight this most wonderful time of the year brought to our family.

Reality check: With most members of the family being kids, it is almost impossible to wait up as late as twelve midnight to touch the food on the table so we had our Christmas Eve feast about two hours earlier.

I took so much delight on preparing almost everything that’s on our table tonight.

The reason why I find gladness in wrapping gifts each year is explained on this post.

If there’s one happiest person present at this time, it’s no other than me. Seeing these kids wearing big grins as they unpack their presents simply doubled my joy. Truly, Christmas is for kids and the kids-at-heart.

A very MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, from my family to yours!
