I don't talk about my family much - mostly coz of how dysfunctional we are. In fact, I've only ever opened up about my family in detail twice in my life - once of which was just a few nights ago.
Well, today was one of those unfortunate days where we didn't have a choice but to sit down as a family for dinner. See, my
brother sister sibling turned 23 yesterday, so naturally, we had to celebrate somehow.
Things were actually pretty calm before the storm. I spent the afternoon catching up on sleep and then got ready. It was a day of prints and matching shoes with the boo boo:
top and skirt from Copper / clutch from Bebe
Syrena's shoes from Sugar Kids / my shoes from Zara
I also spent a few minutes reading Neil Gaiman's "Neverwhere", which I've been reading for months now. It normally doesn't take me this long to read a book, but I always struggle with Gaiman. I dunno. He just doesn't captivate me with his books the way he does with his graphic novels.

We then ate at this new place next door called Ramen Kuroda.
Great food and great location along Aguirre, but a bit pricey. Expect to pay at least 400 per head when going there. They're still on soft opening, too, so their AC isn't on full swing yet.
The bad news is that there was familial tension going on the minute we sat down. Not really surprising for our family but it would've been nice to have a few minutes of peace at least.
This is one of the reasons why I can't bring myself to give up my worst, longest and possibly only horrible habit to date: smoking.
Of course, what meal wouldn't be complete without alcohol? I really think I'm reverting back to my alcoholic ways. Not that I'm complaining. At least I'm staying sane, fun and happy. I just wish more of my friends drank. :p
I also wish my dad would learn how to pour beer into a glass. Or at least not be stubborn about it and let me - the real man in the family - handle it. Lol.
Beer pouring fail. Foam everywhurr.
In the end, the night still ended well for me, though - with unexpected invitations, open promises and intense kilig smiles that make me feel like life is worth it. #cheese
I could live like this forever and be completely fine with it. Just please don't change too soon, life. Please.
