Bonding with My Balikbayan Relative

It's been awhile since we had a family reunion on my maternal side. I am so happy my cousin from the US came back for a short visit this month. Out of her 3 weeks stay, I was able to bond with her four times. Not bad at all considering, she seemed fully booked with lunches and dinners since her plane touchdown in Manila.

The first meeting was brief. It was just for lunch. I have to get home so #babyMartinez can take a nap and she has some place else to go. We were not able to take a single photo huhu

Our second meeting took place in one of the karaoke joints in Quezon City. Some of my cousins were able to join us for a night of singing and chikahan galore. We were the oldest in our group so the song choices were a bit extreme hahaha

Our third meeting was at Early Bird Breakfast Club at The Fort Complex. This time, it was more relax so we had a longer bonding time. We were able to have a leisurely lunch and then went to SM Aura right after.

Ng family reunion

Our last meet-up was last Sunday, exactly four days before she left Manila. It was held in one of the private resorts in Laguna. We had fun swimming. It rained in the afternoon but that didn't dampen our spirit, we swam till it was time for us to check-out.

I am so happy to see my cousin again. I hope I can visit her again in Boston soon!
