the FLIP!

after 10 years.. finally, he's here! our kuya.. my eldest cousin.. kuya franco! even though he's known as miguel in the states, dito sa pinas.. siya pa rin si franco.. our kuya franco!

our first bonding.. get-together here in our place.. though i was sleeping when the others arrived (i wasn't able to see the roberto fam.. just holyann).. it really was something.. just like the old days when the lopez clan had a get together almost every week when papa (our lolo) was still here.. if only tito vic and fam were here also.. but, just like what tita angie said, they could feel like they're with us through the pictures.. buti nalang hi-tech na ngayon! digicam-an na, hindi na kodakan na kailangang ipa-develop! haha.

then our much awaited gimik in the evening.. night out with my cousins.. kuya franco, tito jim, cris, moises, holyanne, talitha, jonathan, celina & paula.. i invited lheeyah also.. her we had a ride! (thank you. thank you. thank you.) jonathan had a takas car though.. haha. taj & maan were also with us.. extened cousins! they my cousins (yarza side) naman eh.. we chilled at gerry's grill for a beer flowing night.. there were quite a number of drunk cuzins.. haha! and not to forget the "para kay gals!" part.. hehe. remiscing the joys that papa shared with us.. ang mahiwagang jeep ng papa! haha.

thanks for the ride lheeyah! on our way..

from silent mode to extreme noise..

beers.. beers.. beers..

wala lang.

the holy anne virus.. beware! haha!

we were the only people left in gerry's grill.. the crew were waiting for us to get out of the place.. ayaw paawat.. haha! after gerry's, we went to temple in gbelt.. celina & paula got in so easily but jonathan was asked for an ID.. yung kuya pa ang sinita.. moises and cris were baby faces too.. haha. but we all got in.. dancing the night away.. we stayed until 3am then decided to go home..

outside temple.. before leaving..

the night didn't stopped there.. when we arrived home.. we chilled.. reminisced.. and loads of kulitan!!! just like when we were little.. haay! ang pinakamakulit na apo ni gals & dids ay nandito na sa pinas.. haha!

kulitan.. ever!
