I'm not a Chinese but I must say, celebrating Chinese New Year has always been something I look forward to every year. Since it's not a traditional holiday for me, my celebration is quite modest. There are no fireworks, no lanterns and feasts. What I usually do is see my friends and spend the wonderful day with them. One of my beliefs is that doing such will help me attract better things in my new year. So, my January 30, 2014 was of no difference. Allow me to share how I celebrated CNY this year by sharing to you the story below.
In just one day, I was able to attend three special events with the people who matter in my life. These are the persons who made my previous years unforgettable. For 2014, I look forward to making more great memories with them.
The first thing I did yesterday was to drive all the way to Abreeza Mall for my lunch date with Team Positive (#positivepeeps) at YakiMix. It was the first major get-together we had for the year because December 2013 and January 2014 made us very busy with our personal lives and career-related tasks. After spending a lovely time with my positive blogger friends, I went to Shakey's Pizza at Duterte Street to celebrate a law school friend's late birthday celebration. It was nice bonding with my friends from AdDU College of Law without talking about provisions and cases about our subjects. There are two words that can describe the time I spend with them - Pure Bliss. The last event was visiting Mommy Floraine of My Happy Beginnings. Together with some of my friends from Positive Peeps, we went to Pampanga Executive Homes for a surprise baby shower!
Of course, the most special part of all was having a sweet dinner with my family. My mom prepared my all-time favorite salad while my brother cooked his specialty. My brother's girlfriend also joined us for the sumptuous dinner. Oh how I wish my dad was there for the simple CNY dinner we had. Well, at least, only two more months to go and I'll see him again.
How about you? How did your CNY 2014 go?
