December 2020

So here are the events and highlights of my December 2020.

Vacation at Cavite

We spent the first week of December at my brother’s house in Cavite. My parents really wanted to do this especially because they will be going to the province for good soon. Life at Cavite was really simple and I did enjoy my stay there. 

Christmas and New Year Celebration 2020

We celebrated both Christmas and New Year 2020 at my eldest sister’s condo in Viera Residences. We had a simple feast together and enjoyed the fireworks display at the veranda of my sister.

Happy New Year from the Glino Fam!

UP Diliman Stroll with the Family

The next day we strolled UP Diliman Sunken Garden just to continue the yearly tradition of going out as a family on the first day of the new year. However, this year we are not complete. 

New Year will always be my favorite holiday. I am blessed to have my family with me to celebrate. 2019 went by really fast. My prayer is to enjoy 2020 as it is. No matter what it may bring.

Here are the rest of my year-end recaps:







Cheers everyone!
