Usher in 2006

I've been missing out on the fireworks three years running, so this year, i made sure i was wide awake to see the year turn over, even if it takes two toothpicks to help keep my eyelids up. Actually, those weren't necessary. New year's eve started with our annual family mass at Auntie Baby's place. I brought along beb to feed him (we have good food, cause good cooking genes run in the family, yabang) and let him see Fr. Eric Santos celebrate mass. Fr. Eric Santos has been celebrating new year's eve mass with us since forever. It has been his panata, and he's more like family to us now. He's one of those priests who have been known to fill churches because of his funny antics, and unlike most of them, he has real comedic timing. And the priest can sing, too.
After mass came the food. We had morcon, caldereta, and my personal favorite lately, embutido (i made beb cook embutido for me. I was waiting for it for a whole year, but it came, and it was worth the wait). Beb went crazy with the soup with tripes and sea cucumber and abalone which sounds a bit yucky but, i promise you, it's to die for. After getting a serving of homemade suman and tsokolate, beb had to run to avoid burning tires and exploding lolo thunders on the road. After digging on a few more ube halayas and doggie-bagging some lechon for paksiw the next day, we had to run home, too, to burn our house down --- eerr--- to drive those evil spirits away with some kick ass fireworks. And we had everybit of them in the entire bang and boom spectrum. It ranged from the 5 minutes of sheer boredom...


we have three dozen of these babies... 12.05

To the let's-stand-back-coz-it's-damn-scary...



it's actually called Happiness, i'd rather it be labeled Fire-Hazard

To the simply spectacular...

I swear i could hear the EK theme song...

Bidding goodbye to 2005 and welcoming 2006 was a blast, no pun intended. But even the brightest of fireworks captured in megapixels couldn't beat this...


priceless... 01.06
