Weekly Photo Challenge: Celebration

Hilton Cebu, Mactan, Philippines

A fine detail of something that was about to happen: a celebration. Why it was not a celebration yet? Because the centerpiece was reflected on the upside-down glasses. Because the rims kissed the white cloth. Because the glasses are like obedient kids waiting to be lifted and kissed.

December 5th marked my second year at work. For an easily bored and fickle-minded individual like me, it is an achievement. Frequent trips to Cebu’s neighboring islands saved me from quitting. 🙂
