every year during the Christmas season, we go home to lucena to relax and unwind. for this year, instead of going home during Christmas, we decided to go home for the new year… and it was a family reunion of sorts as my sister (along with john and miggy) went home also at the same time as we did. if only my brother (and geri and toni, of course) was there too and we would’ve been complete.
like always, i spent a considerable time walking around our house snapping off pictures. sayang lang kasi it was raining most of the time we were there so we didn’t get to walk around the village to take more pictures. here’s some of the photos i got during our short stint at our house in lucena.
you know it’s new year if there’s a bunch of fruits on the kitchen table… 13 fruits all-in-all. 🙂
images from the living room. we got the vases from our former colleague, radz.
images from one of the bedrooms. since we migrated to the city, our house has turned into a boarding house with eight rooms for rent.
papa used to place this proudly on his office table. i would want to have one of these someday…
yup, that’s a real deer. 🙂
i have a similar version of this shot before… but i seem to never grow tired of clothespins. 😀
some shots around the garden.
huge black dog making “ligaw” to our dog. 🙂
we gave miggy a lego set for Christmas and he immediately assembled it. 🙂
more pictures of miggy and his toys.
family pictures. 🙂
plenty of food to welcome the new year. 😀
all-in-all it was an enjoyable and refreshing stay at lucena… like always. with our impending car purchase (ang tagal naman! 😆), we’ll most probably visit more often. 🙂
