looking back at the year that was...2017

The holiday tables have been cleared, and the gifts have been unwrapped.
Yet as we gather with family and friends to celebrate the end of one year
and the hopeful beginning of another, we don’t reflect on the items that
were given and received or the dishes served at dinner. as the first day of
the year begins. I would like to reflect on what happened the past year.

Armed Forces Celebrates 82nd Anniversary

Last Sunday I  was lucky enough to be invited to the 82nd anniversary of AFP
at The Fort. by my friend Jenny. I woke up early and traveled to
Herman's place so we could all be in one car. Because parking would be
very hard.. this is my first time to attend an anniversary of AFP in Fort Bonifacio.

Bulacan has fast become an ideal tourist destination, its vital role in
Philippine history, and its rich heritage , its historical sites; grand old
houses ,churches and culture.... ecological & religious attractions; and
the colorful and enchanting festival. the fiestas. thanks sir Meng for
letting everyone of us experience the unique hospitality Happy Christmas

In the Philippines a fiesta is usually celebrated in barrios or barangays.
It is the official holiday of the LGU, the barangay. Filipinos love fiestas.
It is a time for joy and celebration. A fiesta is of Spanish origin and is
usually commemorated in association with a christian patron saint.

after watching the fiesta, we visited a 300 yr old house of Meng's tito.
it is restored magically. hands down to the restoration work. the house
is a real beauty inside out.
sir Meng is really hospitable this is the first time friends from AHP joined and
celebrated a unique fiesta at Angat.

Foods, party, and thanksgiving! Pinoys are known for their hospitality and that day
we all experienced that. we were invited by neighbors people we just met for the
first time. invited to dine and party with them. this wont happen in Manila. as people
don't trust each other.

After we visited Meng's tito, we went straight home. I really enjoyed this gathering
with my AHP friends. and I know this will be the last time we all see each other for
this year. I will miss them. I wont be able to attend the Christmas party happening
the next day. well there is always next yr.

my blog ends here, next wk, will be the Christmas TOYCON. see you boys and
girls at Megatrade Dec 15-17.
this is your LOVERBOY Dennis signing out.
