Happy New Year! Our New Year's Eve and New Year's Day Celebration

Happy 2012 everyone! How did you celebrate New year? Here's what happened with our New Year's day celebration.


We were out in the street having so much fun playing with sparklers. I had to take several shots of the 2012 sparkler photo since cousin Rome was writing number 2 backwards and it read 2015 instead of 2012. lol! He was having a hard time so he was replaced by my other cousin.



Sis traced cousin Rome's body using a colorful light. We were supposed to use the lights for the 2012 sparkler photo but one of my nieces broke one and we were left with 3 lights.




Outside my sister's internet shop eagerly waiting for the clock to strike 12



While waiting for New year's eve, we nibbled on chips and dip, onion rings, roast chicken and pritong baga. I'm not translating what pritong baga means as I might gross out some foreign friends. lol!




Time to celebrate 2012! Sis and I only prepared a few finger food for our Media Noche.


I purchased some fresh fruits and made chocolate fondue for the kids.




Sis cooked these flavorful wonton wrapped shrimps.




She also prepared savory Wonton Pizza bites



I made some delectable canapes




... and heavenly Raspberry Mousse with fresh raspberries and diced brownies



I was contemplating what beverage to serve but settled with this delightful non Alcoholic White Sangria so the kids can enjoy them too.




Store bought Decadent Chocolate Cake.



Our simple New Year's Eve celebration ( Zorro inspired lol!)








Sharing a lovely lunch on New Year's day. ( No, we are not on a diet!)

I love what you guys did with the sparklers. You've got to have a good camera to able to capture that. Finger foods are the best talaga ihanda during the eve no? I and my sister just realized that kasi halos konti lang nakakain, at talagang the next day pa nakakain ng madami. hehe

Nice pics, Anney! Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your whole fam!

I love the first photo. Wow, I thought no one can really do that and those photos I see online were just photoshopped. Good job!

I also like how you and your sister presented your food. So professional looking, parang food sa hotel! Bongga talaga sis huh!

Sobrang saya at sobrang colorful naman ng New Year ninyo Anney!

Sey said...

Ang galing ng unang photo. Really 2012 was welcomed in your home with a big Hug.

Ang galing ng food. It's a good idea to prepare finger foods. Mas masarap yata yung kainin saka for a change sa nakasanayan.

Someone in the picture looks familiar, kaso hindi ako sure kung saan ko nakita. Siguro kamukha lang.

maiylah said...
