sunny summers

i would be the first to admit that i am neither the most sociable nor the friendliest person in the world. put me in a room full of strangers and, barring some sort of emergency, i would leave that room without having talked to anyone. don’t get me wrong, i’m fine with this, especially since the mere thought of having to come up with something delightful to say to someone i do not know is enough to make me nauseous.

despite my lack of social skills, i think i must’ve done something right in a previous life because i’ve been blessed with a wonderful set of friends. we’ve been in each other’s lives for almost twenty years now and will hopefully continue to be in each other’s lives forever. 🙂

the last two weeks in photos

…because i’m too exhausted to go through everything that happened in complete sentences.

our house became a terrorist den for half a day.

i went traipsing around a coal power plant.

alvin and i attended a wedding where we met the bride and groom in person for the first time!

*then* we attended a christening where we also met the christenee for the first time! (yes, i invented that word)

we let jingy drag us to a delightful exhibit opening sponsored by goethe-institut where we, jingy and i, proceeded to get tipsy on some bubbly, hihi.

we were guests at a little girl’s 7th birthday party. *photo of the little girl from her mother’s facebook account.

we roughed it in a nipa hut.

we marketed and grilled.

alvin got his coffee fix.

we had really good carrot cake with pretty chocolate sketches on the side.

we only had coffee and cake, i promise you.

us and pretty paper lanterns from next door!

we gazed in awe at pretty, tall, pointy things.

we walked around a beautiful, old cemetery.

we headed home.
