Presenting, our New Year's Eve rituals 2012!
|The ever-present 12 or more round-shaped fruits to welcome the New Year, |
actually a Philippine-tradition that we have been religiously doing.
In fact, the girls got involved with picking the fruits this year, and it made it more fun!
|Second appetizer, smoked salmon trout with horseradish.|
We love fish!
|Raclette, a New Year's Eve must! On the left, the mixture of veggies and fruits, on the right, shows the meat selection.|
There's also bread and butter.
|Getting ready for the New Year, wearing my dotted summer blouses.|
They wore these blouses last year, and they didn't forget to rummage into my closet this year again.
Another Philippine tradition, dots mean coins :-)
|Bleigiessen, a German tradition. |
The end shape would display what the future would hold.
I ended up with a dolphin, which is equivalent to good life.
|Cuddling together and watching the New Year's Eve party in Berlin on TV while waiting for midnight|
|Out for some fireworks!|
|IC can't take the noise and was afraid of all the rackets she saw falling from the houses above us, she went inside.|
And decided to make the dessert!
|IC first dessert in 2013 -- cake ice cream with strawberry and cream.|
