For the end of 2006, we went down south and spent time with Valerie’s family. We had a good time visiting the folks, almost got lost in the Southern California desert looking for land without landmarks, loaded up on fine Filipino cuisine (and brought back plenty of baon), I FINALLY WENT to Mexico (my first time to Mexico… yes, ever!) and had a nice New Year’s Eve karaoking the night away at Val’s friend Christine’s sister’s place.

Hope you and your loved ones had a great 2006 – let us all hope for a happy and rewarding 2007!
