Lola's 96th Birthday...

Last March 10 was Lola's 96th birthday and all of us have arranged some get together party for her. Lahat kami apo pitched in a certain amount para sa handa and they had the party from 4pm till 8pm. Just a close get together with the whole clan and some visitors from around our compound.
