Happy New Year from #TalkSupe & November12

This is my niece, Kirsten, my favorite girl, and my muse.
And yes, that's her artwork on the wall.


I can't believe it's already 2016 when 16 years ago we all thought the world is going to end. What with all the Y2K/New Millenium brouhaha, and yet we're still here (thankfully), rockin' and rollin' per usual.

I'm not going to go all wax poetic about my 2015. Succinctly The Year of the Sheep was a formative and transformative 12 months for me. There were a few bumps on the road but I believe my journey is getting smoother. *grins*

email me at talksupe(at)rocketmail(dot)com for price inquiries and orders.

In the Filipino culture, we believe that wearing polkadots while ushering the new year will bring prosperity as it symbolizes coins (pre-paper money). This and we fill our pockets full of money and lots of coins to rattle when the ball drops. The money superstition is of Chinese influence and the noise the coins make are supposed to scare the evil or malicious spirits away. I'm sure it's pure BS, but it's fun and brings back a lot of great memories for me. 

I'm taking a couple of days off to binge, drink, be merry, with enough time to recover from a possible hangover. I'll be back on Sunday. 

Stay safe and I wish you a great New Year's Eve/Day and an even better 2016!

  10. Happy New Year, Braine! I love the tradition with the coins! I have a huge, golden piggy-bank in the south-east corner of my house, and every time I have a 5 franc coin, I will add it to the pig. It's supposed to be the corner of prosperity, so I make sure to feed it often ;)
    I hope 2016 will be a fantastic year for you and your loved ones! I wish you joy, love, happiness, good health, success, a little naughtiness and amazing books ;)
