Extended Family and More

June is a special month for the ones who would want to get married and when marriages conclude, birth announcements follow.

In the Philippines, extended families are only quite typical as offspring and grandparents along with cousins may practically stay under one roof. This may be quite unusual for other cultures across countries but in the Philippines, this is simply natural and a common way of family bonding to the point that too much dependency can be a family curse already.

Family conflicts usually arise among big families that you may wish you can make family members disappear in a flash.

My house alone is packed with cousin, helpers, parents, siblings and nephews! We can run a basketball team with our number, but, this is a culture we simply adore and love, a true Filipino culture!
