No, this is not the reason why I did not log in for a couple of days. It is not also because my older brothers are here. It is because I am once again hooked on watching television series, those that I follow and missed watching since our cable came back. Now, I am back, but again, I will leave. My older brother from UK is chatting with my sister, and I will go to the city proper to purchase a new car battery. Older brother, the fourth, is coming home for as vacation on January, and we must fetch him at the bus terminal with his car. Another reason (again) is WiFi cannot accommodate many phones connected, and it is okay for now because my older brothers are out. Second and third siblings will be leaving later this afternoon,back to the capital city, so it will be the three of us celebrating new year. By the way, be careful my friends, today is Ninos Inocentes. Be aware of pranks and jokes especially those who borrow money from you; these might not be repaid back at all. Picture is us last Sunday, Christmas Happy New Year to all!

@ridingbet Oh i am envious ! It's so nice to have a brother or sister who have a nice work abroad , because you get to get "pasalubongs" and "padala" always .

@SIMPLYD yes, but we tell him to not always bring home pasalubongs for us because it he has to save for himself. we had a chat with him and he asked for our shoe sizes. he said that will be his gift for us his siblings. i opted for a brown closed-shoes with 3 inches heels. i hope i can wear them to church.

@ridingbet I used to be a TVholic as I called it. I could watch day and night. Now the attraction is long gone as the new shows of the past decade are not all that interesting. One or two here and there but that's about it. So I have no problem being here or working on a book.

@just4him well, the Tv shows that i watch are new and i prefer the action-packed, suspense-thrillers, and the daily shows i watch at a local network.

@salonga he just retired from being an assistant director of a government agency. that is a beauty of having older siblings- they share to us the younger. hahaha!

@ridingbet My son is leaving to go back to college today, I am going to miss his beautiful face. We are doing nothing on New Years, I don't like to be out on the roads when all the drunks are.

@fishtiger58 well, here in my country, with the new president, drinking in public places or outside the houses is already prohibited, even singing karaoke. but there are still some who do the unlawful. i hope your son is safe with where he is going. my best regards my dear

I'm always puzzled when I see the German name Ingrid. Have I already asked you how come that you've got this name?

my late mother thought about the name Ingrid because she said my birthday was the same as Ms. Bergman's. it means 'daughter' right?

@ridingbet No, it doesn't mean 'daughter'. I've just checked it on the net. It means 'beautiful'! Isn't that nice?!

@MALUSE oh, it meant 'daughter' when i checked on a baby's book. but even if it did not mean daughter, 'beautiful' would be fine.. thanks for telling me what my name means.

family always comes first, since it only happens once a year. when we went to a family gathering, they were also watching past episodes of probinsyano. so do you have stable internet now?

yes my dear, we have internet now; we did not watch ang probinsiyano yesterday, there was a minor problem power interruption. when power was restored, it was 'magpahanggang wakas' na.

yes it is similar, but ninos Inocentes is more on borrowing money without the intent of paying it back while April Fool's day is i believe, broader in content

@cahaya1983 that is a trait of a Filipino. we are believers of weird traditions and customs, and we adhere to them.

Enjoy the time you have to spend with your family (great picture!) I never heard of Ninos Inocentes but we do have April Fools here in the US.

thanks. the picture is without my 2 other brothers. the Ninos Inocentes is a Catholic church's commemoration of the killing of Roman soldiers of infants up to 3 years old, because of King Herod wanting to eliminate the infant Jesus, so he ordered the soldiers to kill every child; thus, Ninos inocentes.
