Welcome, 2010

It's a brand new year! Happy New Year, everyone!

Last night, we just watched the fireworks from our condo window. Beautiful!

We just ate sylvanas and castaƱas and Coke Zero.

Today, we went to my aunt's place in ParaƱaque.

Food was great and plentiful - shrimps, prawns, Pixie's grilled fish, KFC, macaroni salad, Gerry's Grill pancit, sisig, kaldereta, lechon kawali, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, biko, cassava cake, puto bumbong, caramel popcorn, chips, softdrinks, etc. I didn't - couldn't - eat everything though, much as I wanted to.

There was the usual kwentuhan about family/relatives and friends, and work. My sister removed white hair from me. We borrowed books from my aunt. We enjoyed the cool air. There was picture-taking of course.

Lots of friends greeted me through text and Facebook.

Here are some of them:

Many people come up with new year's resolutions every start of the year. This time, I have only two resolutions:

1) This year, I shall be as loving as I can be to as many people as possible.

2) This year, I shall seek and obey the will of God for me.

So, welcome 2010! I am eager to find out what you have in store for all of us!
