Fun-filled Fiesta!

Today we celebrated Saint Anthony de Padua fiesta! In our family this is not just a fiesta but also a gathering of family friends and relatives. Kung baga get together and getting to know some relatives unknown and reconnect with friends!

Since yesterday pa we had bonding ever na with cousins and relatives. Cooking and preparing foods for the visitors who arrive in the evening. Having fun serving foods to the visitors while chika2x in between task. Last night din napagtripan ko kumain ng ice cream, kinulit-kulit ako ni auntie at ng mga pinsan ko na bumili kaya off we go to buy ice cream. Natagalan kami sa pagbili ng ice cream kasi its already late and we were searching for 24hours Grocery store who sells Double dutch Selecta Ice cream, we are a Selecta Ice cream family kasi. Umabot kami ng Limketkai Mall and Cogon sa paghahanap but we ended up buying in Divisoria which iniiwasan namin mapadpad kasi traffic dahil sa night cafe. In a way, nakatulong din ang paglilibot namin kasi na pasyal namin ang bagong dating na pinsan from Manila, he will be studying here and hindi pa nya kabisado ang Cagayan de Oro. When we arrive its late kakauuwi lang ng last visitor. Nilantakan na ang ice cream and before we know ubos na! hehehe...

Kanina busy din kami kasi marami pa ding bisita. Papa was so happy and wears a big smile when the kusina girls greeted him "Happy Father's Day!" in chorus. Later on, Manang Susie who is in Canada with his boyfriend Bart got the chance to meet the whole family and visitors through my laptop. Nakisaya din sila sa amin, salamat sa Skype video call who made it possible! hehehe... Ang saya-saya ni Manang Susie at halos ma-iiyak na hearing our voices in chorus saying "Hi manang! Kumusta? Happy Fiesta..." when the video call starts. Talagang lahat kami naka one-on-one chat ky manang. She even ask the kids to sing and dance but my niece Eallysa brave all the kids and sung songs we don't understand the lyrics, with matching facial expressions and her upside down guitar. lols... After that Manang Susie and Bart promise to treat us all with ice cream so for the second time bumili kami ulit ng Double dutch Selecta Ice cream.

Fiesta At Work

It’s Kagay-an City Fiesta and we have work. However, our boss treated us for a fiesta lunch here at work. There was beef spaghetti cooked by Angela, Salad made by Sheryl, lechon baboy and manok, and grilled pork. Angela also made fruit punch which was so fruity delicious since she did not put too much gin in it. Everyone had their stomachs full after eating.

Happy Saint Augustine Fiesta Cagayan de Oro!

One of them is a CDO-based group composed of professional videographers and professional photographers called Team Oro.
