I’m so thankful kasi before magpalit ng taon, fully magaling na si Rhian. God is so good all the time talaga. Anyway, kung gano kami kasaya at ka excited for Christmas, ganon rin kami last New Year’s Eve. And since kakagaling lang ni Rhian sa sakit, we opted to stay at home kesa pumunta sa bahay ng parents ko, bawal kasi kay Rhian ang mausok baka bumalik pa yung sakit nya. This is the first time we celebrate New Year’s Eve at our home, ever since I got married kasi sa house ng parents ko kami lagi.
For our Media Noche, I prepare baked macaroni (of course using my new electric oven. Naks), baked cheesy sugpo, lumpiang shanghai, tilapia, liempo and pancit canton (1st time kong magluto nito). Of course, hindi kumpleto ang handa kung walang cake from Conti’s, 14 fruits, chocolates, white wine and softdrinks. Ooppss. I forgot, meron rin pala kaming bigas na nasa maliit na lalagyanan. (pampaswerte daw according to my mom).
After our photoshoot for our greetings, we keep ourselves busy by watching television. But when the countdown begins, ayun nabuhay ang natutulog naming diwa. Kanya kanya kaming paraan para mag ingay, si tita kumuha ng kaldero at sandok, si hubby naman gumamit ng torotot ako naman, karga ko si Rhian sa left arm habang inaalog yung mga laruan ni Rhian. Hehe. Tumalon kami, sumigaw lahat na ginawa namin para mag ingay para umalis ang malas at pumasok ang swerte.
We watched our neighborhood habang nagpapaputok, pero hanggang dungaw lang. I saw at my baby’s face na super naamazed sya sa fountain (I guess, makulay kasi) and explain to her na every year before her birthday makakakita sya ng ganon. By 12:30am of January 1, sabay sabay kaming nag pray and kumain with matching picture taking parin.
Rhian’s 1st New Year Celebration was successful. For me and my husband it was double celebration, New Year’s Eve at the same Thanks Giving narin for all the blessings that we received for 2014. Looking forward for more blessings this year! Cheers!
