Winter Holiday with the Family: Day 6 of 11

For our first extended family time since I left home to work overseas, we’ll be spending the winter holiday together.  Starting with Christmas in the Philippines, ending with the New Year in Korea. Having everyone around, just hanging out, makes it feels like home, wherever it may be.

About home, we’ve abandoned our perfectly good apartment in Oksu, renting it to strangers, and taken to renting a smaller crappier apartment in Apgujeong, owned by other strangers.  As a bonus, it’s right next door to the In-Laws.  Yay!

And in lieu of a nanny, W’s aunt has moved in to look after the kids and take care of the place.

With all due respect to auntie’s debut on GMTD, I don’t like two broth dishes on the table simultaneously, kinda like how I don’t like more than one carb or protein in a single dish.  But the food was good.
