Why hello, 2013! It's official: 2012 is history. I figured it would take some time before I get used to writing that 3 from the 2 that I've grown used to in the past year. Especially now that my internship is finally over and classes are starting again (for me). I figured this is my first post this year so let me just share how we greeted 2013.
Far from the literal meaning of the blog post title: no, we didn't greet New Year with loud booming firecrackers (well, except for the occassional fountains and lusis *whatever it's called*) -- we just settled for the horns//trumpets or any other things that produces loud sound to at least greet the new year ahead safe and far from harm. :)
|My sister looking pretty in her red dress. Aww, I was so jealous the entire time. I originally bought that dress for myself but turns out it was too short for me when I tried it on at home. But nonetheless, it looked pretty on her. :)|
|Rachelle + Me + Mama.|
|Me + Mama. All dolled up to greet the new year. :* Loving my chinese-inspired high-low yellow blouse which I got from a random boutique a few days back. :)|
|Highlights of the evening. I figured I'll just do a collage since there are just so many pictures I wanna share that this may turn out a bit like a photo album if I posted them all one by one. XD|
And then... a couple of group pictures for the evening!
|Loving this candid shot. <3|
|At the dining table. Bursting with bright colors!|
|Another one again. :)|
|Shame that Papa wasn't able to join us in this celebration. But hey, there's always Skype -- it was kinda sad but we have to work with we got :)|
|Another group shot -- now with the hats/trumpets.|
Well, I could post some insights on the past year but I think I should just leave it all behind as the calendar flipped into a new page. There's still my New Year's resolution, but my eyes are kinda tired now and I need sleep... so I guess that could wait until the next post.
Anyways.... a HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE! Hope you all have a good year ahead. Here's to a more lively, fun life. Cheers to all of us! :) ~ Riza :)
