Photo Hunt "Family"

Meet my family. It’s not really a recent picture; this was taken 9 years ago on what used to be a family day. Most Sunday afternoons, we hang out at the beach; have some barbeque and kinilaw/sushi. My Uncles and cousins (boys) would go fishing and we’ll just cook bananas and so when they arrive we have some fresh, sweet, raw fish to eat with vinegar and chili, of course. Ah, I missed those days!

Yes, those are idyllic moments with your family. Those were probably your most enjoyable moments with your family. The Philippines indeed is a paradise delight to bond with your loved ones. This photo will always remind you of those moments. Thanks for the memorable post. God bless you and your family always.

I love going to the beach and stuff with all of my family, they all live far away though, so we don't get to like we used to. Nice shot :)

Great picture. I miss kinilaw (or kilaw) too. It's just not the same even when you try to make it here in the diaspora.
