I got so happy and excited when I heard in the local TV news about the total eclipse which happened yesterday night. It was the darkest and the longest lunar eclipse in the century ever. I become a sky watcher and started to have interest and passion taking pictures with the sky since I started to blog. Lunar eclipse happens when the moon, earth and sun are exactly align to each other with the Earth in the center. It was announced that the eclipse was supposed to occur at around 01:00 a.m. yesterday. I waited to witness and capture the spectacular event and unfortunately I just get disappointed because there was no eclipse. I slept back and found out in the morning that it did occur at 03:45 a.m. My sister had seen it and captured how the moon slowly disappear and how it became red. Oh, I missed it! Hope there is still next time.
The day was a bit shady and everyone was very busy preparing for the big day of my cousin. It was my cousin’s wedding day! The wedding ceremony started at 10:00 in the morning and I was so happy and honored that I was part of the wedding program. I was the one who lighted the unity candle that symbolized the union of their hearts. There were lots of guests witnessed their wedding vows and it was just like a reunion of our relatives and long lost friends. The couple looked so lovely and so in-love. I admired them for being very hands-on in planning their own wedding and got impress with the way their wedding turned out. Everything went smooth. My hearty congratulations to the proud bride and the groom. We are so happy for both of you and we wish you greatest joy, love and happiness for a lifetime. God bless you.
“AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; so they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Mark 10:8-9)

I’ve been in a week of stressful events, mind blowing things and sleepless nights that made myself busy, exhausted and tired. I traveled the whole week, reported for an interview, processed documents here and there, picnic and lastly ended it up by throwing a party. We made a thanksgiving party for God’s faithfulness in our family. He provides work to my brother who was jobless for almost a year and for I passed in my job interview but the really reason was to celebrate my father and sister’s birthday.
It was Sunday and my sister’s birthday. We went to the Church attended regular Sunday worship service and after we had lunch and then made a small party for her. We bought a cake and delicious refreshments. Her birthday party didn’t end up yet. Still the ostentatious celebration was still waiting to be joined together with my dad’s birthday party the next day. I am so happy I got lots of Great party gift idea by Kokopax, check out their baby bathtubs.I just can’t believe that our youngest sibling, the birthday girl have her own family and baby already.
When the day turned to dark everyone started to prepare and cook foods for tomorrow’s celebration. And of course I helped. I cooked spaghetti.
The big party happened at the beach. All our relatives and some of the church members were there. We prepared roasted pig, grilled Tuna fish , delicious mutton recipes and many more. My father brought his big music sound system for sing-along or we so called it “videoke or karaoke.” Everyone seemed full and very enjoyed especially the kids with their favorite baby bathtubs. What a nice feeling for after few years just now again I was able to join a family party and gatherings. It was fun!
Life is Beautiful!!!
