Best of Holidays 2012

The Holidays 2012 had been very eventful. My sisters came home and one of them brought a boyfriend (for the 1st time). My own boyfriend also came home, and we've visited Basilan (which is his home) a couple of times during his 2-week leave.

There were reunions and alumni homecomings. A pool party, a dinner at a seaside restaurant, and a tour of Zamboanga's tourists spots. There were sparklers, gifts, jumping rope mania, and not to forget tons of laughter and tons of food!

Here are the highlights of the holidays:
