This is me in my barong tagalog Filipino dress shirt with my Uncle Oscar in Cali this weekend.
I had a lovely time with the family over July 4th weekend, starting with a relaxing barbecue at my Mom’s house and ending with a blowout wedding for my Uncle Nesting and Auntie Angie. I am the first to admit that I am not very good at staying in touch with most of my extended family. But every once in awhile it’s great to be among my hundreds of cousins, aunts, uncles and random relations from all over. Especially when I get to wear my very stylish barong.
It was the perfect Filipino wedding — a long long long Catholic Mass / wedding, lots of food and alcohol, cheesy songs, karaoke, cha-cha and "rock and roll" dancing, and color coordinated outfits all around. We did BOTH the Electric Slide and the Achey-Breaky Heart line dances! Such a great party.
Hope everyone else had a lovely weekend as well.
