New Year and my brother got engaged!

The first day of the year and I slept until almost noon. I was extremely full from the previous night’s festivities and it took me a good hour before I went to bed. So for today, I was set to clean my room and the house as well because I always believe in an organized place before embarking on a new endeavor. Then by late afternoon, Mon dropped by our house to greet all of us a “Happy New Year”. =D

My brother proposing

And then on Facebook, we saw a picture uploaded and found out that my brother has already proposed to his girlfriend! Yay! That was a surprise! We knew until last night that they will get married on May and it was only today that he has proposed. Until last night because they will put the wedding off until January 2014. O_O The good thing about that news was summer will all be about mine because of my graduation. =D Just kidding.

Some red wine for tasting

To cap the first night of the year off

For days, I did nothing but eat, eat and eat. It was not as voracious as the previous years because I was just sampling everything Mama has prepared. Nevertheless, I just felt extremely heavy and bloated and was resolved to finally start with my exercise again tomorrow.=D But for the last time tonight, I was really hungry and was scavenging for food in the refrigerator when my sister surprised me as she was still awake. I thought she was already asleep. As I was eating caramel bars off from the unopened box, she asked me if I can open the bottle of red wine in the fridge. It was difficult to open, as if it did not want to be opened but I got there in the end. My sister and I toasted and began drinking our first mini glass. I then asked if we have cheese but all we had was a box of quickmelt ones — I was hoping for some cheddar at least. Anyway, I had a nice time chatting with my sister and we were laughing our heads off on how stupid we were. LOL It was a nice way to cap the first night of the new year and I would not do it any other way. Now, I feel more optimistic of the year ahead because of some wine and cheese.
