HAPPY NEW YEAR <
My father's back from his 7 day trip so were all happy! And thanks to Tito Alexfor driving our car.
The Day Before New Year...Dec. 31, 05
We had our breakfast at Jollibee Blue Waves (near MaDocs). I was supposed to have burger but my mom altered it to rice with hotdog and egg. I didn't whined instead devoured because of starvation. After being satisfied with the victual, I flipped the pages of Philippine Star to see that the news I wanted long to hear wasn't up (and kicking) yet. (Hi YG!!)So I turned my attention on my hot chocolate but the taste sucks and I gave it to my brother and sip water instead.
When we got home, we just fed Popsicle and Meow, unwind for awhile then we went to buy fruits at SM Southmall. But the lines were exaggeratedly and excessively long for us to join the last minute shoppers having only fruits to buy so we just bought cake and have the fruits and other little things needed purchased outside the mall.
It was 2pm when I decided to sleep. When they woke me up at 6:30, the foods were all cooked and dinner was ready. After dinner, we prepared ourselves for the New Year's Mass here at Mary Mother of the Church. Fireworks and Pyrotechnics were already painting the sky when we headed home but, my brother wants to have firecrackers as it was 'tradition' daw, so they bought two something like five star accumulated together to form a long one. At home, they started to light the incense and turn the music on but striking 10pm past, I shut it off and turned the tv on to see Bagong Taon, Bagong Buhay The ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs Yearender Special. After that, I shut it off and turned on the music again then I went to prepare the Table Setting. It was nearing 12am when I decided to go out to watch so many fireworks firing and painting up the dark but starry sky. It was amusing but choking because of the massive air pollution firecrakers had bought.
The clock striked 12 and we did some Chinese Traditions. We rolled oranges off and tossed coins and chocolates all over the house. The only thing I forgot is to JUMP. Duh.
Our carte du jour for the New Year's Eve was Fettuccine, Valenciana, Fruit Salad, Fiesta Ham and the other ham in which the brand is I dunno, Chocolate Mouse? Chocolate Moose? Can't spell it? Just eat it. CHOCOLATE MOUSSE! We had oranges, fuji apples, honey lemon and chico but we didn't let the chico out because it has black seeds. In our table was also delicacies like Purple Yam Pie or Ube Piaya, Toasted Muffins, Pinasugbu and Barquillos and Barquirons. But our carte du jour was adding passing 12 with 2 kinds of Pancit, Spaghetti, and Buko Salad. Well, it was such a feast and we thank it ALL to HIM who gave us and you such plenty of blessings. And I'm forever (and you too, I know) grateful for all this. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
This year was such a nice one. And this is one of the best years I have. It hurts to say goodbye but I hope the incoming year will be much more better than the previous. I'm happy with it so...THANK YOU 2005! And...
Goodbye 2005! Hello 2006!
The Day Itself...Jan. 1, 06
Our auntie La wants to go here with us but auntie Marlyn and tito Antong (actually, he's our uncle) wants us to have lunch with them. To resolve the conflict of schedule we went there anyway they're all there at Cavite. Auntie La's in Trece and Auntie Marlyn and Tito Antong's in Indang. 1st itinerary: Auntie La's house. We ate cake there eventhough our Chocolate Mousse is still alive. I'm asking for the flavor of the cake but auntie said it was Choco Crumble? Coffee Crumble? Mocha Crumble? But one thing's sure...it's a Great cake that deserves a Red Ribbon. Then they cooked Spaghetti and Valenciana. When the food was ready to be eaten, we drove off together with Kuya John and Auntie La to Indang which was only minutes away from them. We brought some delicacies with us and Auntie La had the Valenciana and a Roll of Goldilocks Mocha cake. But I guess we need not bring them because there were loads of foods there. I'll TRY to name all of them. Spaghetti, tinolang manok, Shrimp, Inihaw na Pusit, Inhihaw na tilapia, Buko Salad, Ube Halaya, ginataan, Puto and fruits. I don't know if I missed something because I just had spag, one pusit, one shrimp and grapes. That's all. After eating, we went out to see their back forest. In the Bahay Kubo we stayed. As the chairs were all occupied, I tried to find one but found none. But I saw that there was a duyan so I revel myself with it aside from laughing and smiling with the stoires they have. I got dizzy after some great and slow pushes so I transfered in the wooden bench. My brother tried they duyan and enjoyed it to the point of lying down while swinging. And when we wrapped him with it he looks like a ham.
It was past 3 when we decided to leave. At 4 past, we left auntie La's house then at 5:30 past, we reached auntie Beverly's new house at RoseWood in Bacoor, Cavite. We didn't stayed long there. We arrived home at 6:30 past.
Still, the floors with coins, few chocolates and few oranges (we have already eaten most of it) was not yet swept. It will only be now, Jan. 2, that it must be cleaned.
And I hope to get the coins for future use in commuting but no luck. It was said to be kept.
This start doesn't justify the whole but as I am happy with the rest of the day, I hope the whole year round too. And as I'm becoming lazy right now, I hope that it will only be now not forever because DAMN! I still need to concoct my report about The Odyssey when school starts again!
|Ma. Veronica Sheena Valencia de Gonzales y Tan de Prieto. That is the FULLEST of my name, no less. Unless I'd
be indolent to write, then that will be Sheena Valencia, and that's how my name goes in school, everywhere!...Sinking in historically, I was born by the date of July 28 and I'm 16. It
was Makati Medical Center who witnessed the 1st sign of my breathing. Now I'm here in flesh at Las Piñas to continue the journey of my life. It's not perfect...but it's great!
I love writing. Although I must admit that I'm not that splendid. I love blogging, chatting, reading- and I don't mean textbooks- speaking- or if you mean orating, well fine!- and sleeping! (Well, actually all of these and more are written down there , so I need not elaborate.) Aesthetically, I'm pretty fine as well as emotionally. Now, sinking in personally. I'm erratic and aggressive but patient. I'm a comic and I love to laugh but I have exceptions. I'm driven by moods of others but I always try not to be. I want justice incessantly but I must admit that sometimes I'm biased. I'm naughty but I know how to follow. If I seem to be dark and sinister...don't be anxious...there are tons (and majority) of my being is angelic.
Currently, I'm a senior- and my height doesn't say so!- highschool student of St. Joseph's Academy and I'm enjoying it! Soooo much! It's superb! There are fuss and flaws but really, it's Supercalifragilistic Expialidocious! BUT on the looming AY to come, I will be in college! Burden is- I don't want to leave SJA so soon! Can I (and we) just repeat? *scowls
(Inserted: Aug. 12, 06)But...that current up there is archaic because at this point, I'm already in college at De La Salle University- Dasmariñas. Meaning, the dream of repeating will just be a dream and will never come true because I'm already here. And I must enjoy what I have because there will be no turning back since I have decided to say everytime I fall, "Standout Josephian!" What a smile it brings me...
...I go by...
Cinderella- the name my parents and relatives used to call me when I was small.
