Sweetie and I went home the day after the wedding. It was just after Christmas and hotel fees were expensive. My Mom helped us get a place to rent. It was, of course, just five minutes away from her by car. That was important for us because we didn't have a car at that time (Sweetie's car was damaged by typhoon Ondoy).
Sweetie's parents picked us up at the hotel and brought us home. We had so much stuff! My parents took care of transporting the gifts, so we were surprised it was already in the apartment when we got home. The first thing we had to do was figure out dinner. Our cooking area wasn't set-up yet. I think we were saved that night because we ate dinner at my parents house, haha.
The next day we worked on opening gifts. We found plates, some serving dishes, knives, a rice cooker and key items we could use to eat. Sweetie's Dad lent us their car and I remember we went to the supermarket to buy provisions and a can opener*. For that day we got some Binalot and maki.
We didn't have to worry about food for a month since there were a lot of parties. Our parents also always sent food. Miggy soon moved in with us when we had things under control. Our first cooking attempt happened a week later. It was a failed attempt, haha. The first laundry attempt also ended up in disaster. It was followed by a smokin' sink.
I'm glad we were able to write about our first year. It was a roller coaster ride for us. I just thought to look back since we're finally getting some proper cabinets for our new home. Yay!
*Recently found the can opener and it still works!
