  •  Philippines New Year (0+ / 0-)

    Several hours ago now, the new year was ushered in with an incredible array of fireworks. We were on the roof of a house in the Taguig section of Manila, partying with my wife's family, a mix of every age from babes in arms to elders such as myself, with a ton of food (some wonderful tuna sashimi!) and drink (good ol' San Miguel). There were games for every age group and, of course, karaoke. Towards the end of the evening (about 4AM) someone found a spent bullet on the roof--I think someone had been shooting into the air, but not one of us. All in all, a typical loud, family style welcome to 2013. Very cool.
