When I got home, I noticed my sister's school bag on the couch and asked my 5-year old cousin if she's home. He told me he's at the back playing the piano so instead of reading, I decided to hang-out with her. I played the piano; my older cousin sprawled on the floor, music sheets around him, listening to some song while studying the notes; and I can hear my sister and another cousin in the adjacent room dancing, feet pounding and laughing. Total chaos. And evidently the start of a good weekend.
When I got back to the house after an hour I was thinking it's time I attack my TBR pile like the book maniac that I am but first, I need sleep. Like a hell lot of sleep. I've been sleeping for no more than 2-hours this week and then I got a text.
Him: Rai, wear something formal tomorrow. Meet me at school, 9AM. We have a defense.
Me: What? What do you mean formal? And what defense?
Him: Club Accreditation Defense
So I was back to my no-breakfast-late-lunch routine. I had a club meeting this morning organizing and preparing everything we need for an upcoming party and then defense after. I love today's outfit, by the way:
This plus black fitted slacks and pink super high-heeled shoes.

And now here I am, trying to get back to my original plan which consists of a movie later with my sister and if I am not tired enough maybe go to the Bacolaodiat Festival.
About Bacolaodiat Festival
All through out the world, the Chinese New Year explodes with firecrackers and dragon and lion dances and is observed with religious rituals, gift giving and family feasts.
In Bacolod City, it will be marked with dazzling illuminated colorful giant lanterns, lighted floats, fireworks, a Chinese food alley and cultural dances.
This is Bacolod's very own Chinese New year Festival--Bacolaodiat! It comes from the words "Bacolod" & "Lao Diat" (Fookien word for celebration).
Last year's Bacolaodiat:
