Invasion of our Home VIII: 'Preparing For Media Noche!'

Welcome 2010 and Thank You very much 2009!!!

Last night, we finally say goodbye to 2009 and we warmly welcomed 2010. As we welcome 2010, I will also welcome you in our home now in the year of 2010. New year means new invasions!

As the first day of the year approached us, you will also be the first to enter our home! Let me share with you how we prepare for the New Year's eve. So c'mon guys!

The Table was Ready!

Do you like the Ambiance?!

I know you already visited our dining area from your previous invasions. But for the coming of the new year, let me introduce to you the new look of our place of fine dining! Here's how it looks now! My mom was the one who chose for the design of our table cloth! It's colorful that will really blends for the coming of more colorful year!

The pictures were taken at around 10pm. As you can see, there were only few foods in the table. Of course, you already recognized the round fruits on the center. Oh, sad to say that we won't able to complete the 12 fruits! But its alright!

Another foods that you see in our table were the chopped crispy ulo and the loafs of bread. Initially, we were planning to buy a kilo of lechon-baboy, but during that day, all the lechons were out of order from almost all the stores. Talagang nagka-ubusan! But then we were still thankful that we still grabbed crispy ulo! So yummy and crispy!

It was Really a Colorful Set!

Round Fruits were Emphasized!

Oops...These Gifts were For the Children!!!

Not included in the pictures were our other handa like the buko salad, my special choco-gelatin, ube-choco cake, softdrinks, mango ice cream, and spaghetti! During that time of picture taking, spaghetti was about to cook. Meanwhile the desserts that I mentioned were inside our refrigerator!

We were so glad that we had an exchange of foods with our neighbors. We trade our salads and ice cream with the spaghetti and 'malagkit' of our neighbors!

As you can see, there were gifts in our sala's center-table. These gifts were wrapped by my mother to be given to the children in our place!

And when the 12 midnight approached, my mom rolled all the round fruits in our table! 'Pampa-swerte daw yun...' as the tradition tells us!

Well, what can you say as you visit our home before the new year's eve? Are you satisfy with the foods we had for media noche! Or do you want to exchange foods just like we did together with our neighbors?!

Again, hope you had a good time as we took a journey in our home during the first day of the year! Have a prosperous New Year!!! c",)
