A Week Long Filipino Party

I welcomed June with a full tummy and an extra weight. Ugh. My week started with two birthdays, two anniversary celebrations and one we-dont-have-salary-yet-so-we-are-going-to-cook-lechon kind of party! The last one is funny because it’s true! It’s one of the best thing I like being Filipino. Even if we don’t have any money, we still find a reason and a way to celebrate and bond with friends. ๐Ÿ˜€

JUNE 1: WADE’S BIRTHDAY AT SCHOOL

We celebrated it in his school along with his classmates. I made a separate post about it here since it’s Nikolaj’s first children’s party.


JUNE 2: THE LECHON PARTY

A combination of Wade’s birthday, Cailey’s 13th month birthday, Angelica&James’ anniversary and Ella&John’s anniversary. And yes, we didn’t have salary yet, but we were able to eat lechon!

JUNE 3: RADJIN’S BIRTHDAY

This is not a Filipino party, but some of the visitors are Filipinos. ๐Ÿ˜€ This is the first time I attended a Hindustan birthday celebration. They have this tradition of popping three balloons filled with confetti on top of the celebrant’s head.


JUNE 6: ANGELICA AND JAMES’ ANNIVERSARY

Also called as the Papancit party with lechon paksiw. Filipinos always know how to make use of the leftover lechon. ๐Ÿ˜‰


JUNE 7: ELLA AND JOHN’S ANNIVERSARY

A.K.A. the Batchoy party. We need to find a way to make use of the leftover lechon!

I just hope it’s easy to lose the weight I gained this week. ๐Ÿ˜›
