My family’s enough for me :) (My Unforgettable Moment :”>)


“Among the outlandish cultural values that Filipinos pride themselves of is their so-called “close family ties.” As a child, I was taught that Filipinos are “unique” because they care for their family and kin at a level of closeness that is rarely observed or practiced in other cultures or races. (Asians and Hispanics in general are closely knit.) It is a cultural tradition that is valued and evidenced by our fondness for family reunions during secular and religious holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s eve parties, All Saints’ Day, Holy Week, fiestas, homecomings, birthdays, weddings, graduations, baptisms, house blessings, wakes, funerals and almost every conceivable excuse to celebrate and feast. (Shared among former Hispanic colonies.)” – from http://antipinoy.com/on-filipino-close-family-ties/

Hello, everyone! This is my first post here in wordpress.com 🙂

As what the selection above says, us Filipinos are proud of having close family ties. I, myself, love my family so much. I love going on outings and hanging out with them. Here are some of our family pictures:

No matter what will happen to us, we will just end up with the same family; same family that will love and care for us unconditionally. We may not have the most precious things in the world, we may not have all the luxuries we wish for, but we can have the most valuable moments in life that will surely last a lifetime. 🙂
