I mentioned in my previous blog that the family went to Switzerland. Why? We were invited by our friends to attend the 18th birthday celebration of the daughter of their close friends their. It was a very beautiful celebration, even my little who had fever that afternoon couldn't help but join in, partied the night away and even took me to the dance floor to dance.

A family photo on events such as this is a must.
At least for me. Hehehe!
The venue was nice, the live band was very good, the decoration was nice, the food was very good, the program was superb, everything was just nice! I had to set aside my non-existing "weight-loss program" and just allowed myself to eat what's served on the buffet table. To stop feeling a little less guilty, I vowed to hit the fitness studio again. I even told myself , "there's always diet pills" that will help me lose weight afterward.

After the sumptuous dinner, the showcase of talents and some Filipino traditions related to 18th Birthday celebrations followed. We were amazed at the talents that the Filipino children had. Most of them know how to play at least one musical instrument. They also have very beautiful voices and have very great dance moves. The changing of the shoes and candle ceremonies were two of the more touching parts in the celebration. The speech of the debutante at the end of the program was also very beautiful, although I didn't understand most of it because it was spoken in Swiss German.
