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.

just another day at the office

there are many reasons why i love my job. here are some of them.

i get to watch the sun rise and set.
