The Filipino-American Christmas Party 2014

Here’s a photo of me and my first born taken last Saturday at a neighbor’s house during a FIL-AM Christmas Party located just five blocks away from our house. It was a last minute invitation from one of our mutual friends and gladly I was available.

I only brought J with me, little M was too sick to come with us. It was nice to have attended the party, there were plenty of scrumptious food but the attendees were mostly Tagalog since the host of the party are Tagalog. There were just three of us who speak Bisaya. I didn’t talk much around them instead I was the listener most of the time. Most of the visitors I haven’t met before and didn’t want to talk about either so just stayed quiet the entire time, or if I did talk, just a bit.

You know I am in my most comfortable self when I am with people I know/have met before or with fellow Bisaya.

After the feast, we had an exchange gifts.  Second photo shown below is what my first born got, a party serving set. I am happy of what she got, this is very useful during a small gathering or any occasion that requires me to display small servings on the table for my family to enjoy.

I didn’t expect that we can bring home this beautiful set for I didn’t put a prettier stuff for our gift. But anyway, what’s inside the box don’t matter much, what counts is we got to join the activity and got to meet new people.
