It is the 17th day of September and the last day of the week. Today I would like to try some new things by sharing my personal experiences regarding the title above. Their articles inspire me to do so. Despite the doubt if I can make it, I still continue and try my best.

Throwback Thursday: A Memorable Celebration @Ellehcim
The Last Celebrations @Jane
Sorry for the mention
The word celebration is full of happiness. Filipinos love to cherish every small achievement we make. Commonly, we celebrate together with our loved ones to complete the full package of happiness. Every detail happened on that day we put it into our memory bank. Year 2017 is a year that our family celebrates too much but not the pricey lavish one of course😂
It was in a chowking restaurant with my family. It was a celebration that my sister finally came home after being an OFW for 2 years. She treats my nieces and nephew by riding different arcade games, buys some shirts and pants for my brother, flat sandals for mama and me. Just plain food co'z food is life😂.
The day after my only nephew's birthday, his 2nd birthday. My family and I will do it. Simple yet full of happiness co'z finally we are complete after my papa death. Endless chit-chat, laugh of course my brother do their thing which is to drink together with their friends. Week after, my 18th birthday happened, again it was a small celebration together with my family, friends and churchmate. Days after, it was my first niece's birthday and again we celebrated it with a simple celebration. I will not go into details because we do the same thing for those birthdays. How funny and costly when that month comes because celebrations are sequential.
Gosh! week after, the 24th birthday of my older brother. I told you about the endless celebration that month😂. I am missing this celebration because of school work and our examination day. I was alone in our house when night came and it was also scary. I mentioned it as "Experience of Unseen". My brother tried to convince me to enjoy it but I refused to do so, which I regret the most "December bring Sadness". Hint, it was his last birthday. Move on with that, it is supposed to be a happy reminisce. Thanks to the technology, we made a video call for me to witness the celebration he has. For me the sad thing is that they eat delicious food while me eating pancit canton with scrambled eggs.
It was my graduation day in senior high school. Kilay is life yarn😂. Our first celebration after the unforgettable tragedy happened to our family. We are seven in the family but now we are only five. Sadly but that is life. My graduation was celebrated in simple dining with my family. Oh, it was a surprise celebration to show their support and appreciation that I still survive despite everything. But for me, my graduation celebration is a sign of accepting what life throwned to us and starting a new chapter in life.
How could I forget the Christmas and New Year Eve celebrations😂. Little background, my sister's and my brother have their own family. So, in our house it was me and my mama. To celebrate with just the two of us makes me feel sad. My older sister suggested that we celebrate as one in our house together with their own family. The more the merrier. That picture was taken while preparing the viands, dessert and all for the celebration and my brother is busy. That's why he did not include the picture.
Recently, I added a cart to my mama's 53th birthday celebration. It was a long celebration by the way. We wake up at exactly 12:00 am to serenade and sing to wake her up. At 3:00 am we go to a nearby eatery and when morning comes we do the cooking for lunch and viands that we will bring to the resort. Indeed, we make our mama's birthday more special. Feel exhausted from not having enough sleep but when we see the smile and how happy our mama is, everything is paid off.
The most important part of every celebration is the happiness we feel during the celebration because when we feel happy while celebrating surely it is good to remember every single detail.
CHECK THEM OUT and Thank you always.
