Celebrations and Mourning

A couple of weeks ago my elder brother arrived from abroad for a 3 week vacation. as always parents ussualy prepare their childrens favorite dish. but this time its special, his first born about 8 months old is with him, this is the first time will be seeing him, everyone is excited because its my parents second grandchild and my first real nephew... its a celebratin of new member of the family.

Last sunday, its my cousins 21st birthday... the preparation if kinda bit grand, there were pulutan and beer. a guys 21st birthday is somehow a like a gals 18 birthday, its a of a guys debut. Since the party will start later in the afternoon, we decided to visit our uncle for a while together with our wife and kids then visit the mall afterwards. Unfortunately, as we were on our way to my uncles house, we received a surprising text message, its from my sick uncle oldest daugther, she said that he pass away this morning at the hospital... all smiles turn into sorrow, for our family are really close together, we used to live under one roof in my lolas house... as one family is celebrating a new member, the other celebrates the coming at age and the lost of loved one in latter.
