Domingo-Fernandez Reunion

Was invited to attend this big clan event.. there's little time to prepare huhuhu

This was hurriedly done. My Tita Fe was asking me if I could provide a family pic including my siblings and parents, nieces and my own children.. I could not find something suitable that very moment.. most of our family pics were destroyed by Ondoy.. so i tried to do the collage .. but no can do..

Today was supposed to be the Fernandez Domingo Clan reunion in Guiguinto, Bulacan.. so sorry I could not make it..
