What makes Christmas and New Year so special?  

It is a time to celebrate with loved ones and far far away friends and to continue good memories with them.  All I know I am happy remembering my good old childhood years and celebrations like this made me go back to some happy years of my life!

You bet, I went overseas to spend again these holidays with them so please wait while I prepare some post though I have promised some backlogs trips (Switzerland) mid-year last year.  I hope you won’t be confused which one is a recent trip but, here are some teaser for this recent trip celebrating Christmas and New Year in the Philippines!  🙂

Every mall around the country has X’mas decorations!

My favorite destination as I keep coming back to TAGAYTAY.  The 2ND summer capital of the Philippines (South).

And of course my good times in my own province in Batangas but most of it are private photos but I have some older post LINK here if you are curious.  Same good old feelings of my childhood.  Same people who love me even if I only see them once a year or two. This makes the occasions more festive, more fun and storing it in my son’s memory bank.  I want him to remember the other half of him… half Filipino and feel the love and unique as he can be.  

 

I wish YOU all a Happy New Year and thank GOD for all the blessings coming your way!

Cheers!

Camera Lucida – The Colour of Life

This is in response to Week #10 Camera Lucida Photo Challenge.

Auckland – Chinese Lantern Festivals (usually every February).

Full of life and (happy) noises, crowds cheered (free shows from China), tummy full (lots of food stalls from different Asian Countries), children having so much fun (free play, face painting, freebies) and I think this makes the City comes to life and meet all types of people to smile and/or talk to.  I like festivals like this, it makes me feel like a child again!
