Sean's graduation day!

30th may 2014, was the day my brother graduated. The entire family was super proud, esp mum of course! We got up early to do our make up, we each brought a nice outfit just for his graduation ceremony. We also checked out of the hostel we were staying in.

As the hostel was a few minutes away from Sean's university, we walked over instead of driving. The hostel was kind enough to keep our luggages safe till we returned. Walking into the university, i was in awe. It looked alot like a castle. Also, it kinda reminded me of Hogwarts! Hahaha. I love the bricked walls & old buildings. Graduating students were littered all around the campus. Family & friends gathering ard their love ones, taking photos. U cld just see the pure joy of knowing that after tt day, they will be named 'Doctors'! They were all beaming with joy!

After my brother's graduation ceremony, we took a couple of pics & headed back to the hostel for a quick change & drove to Kinsale town for his graduation lunch at an extremely good restaurant called "Fishy fishy"! It is by far one of the best lunches i've ever had! The fish is really fresh, so were the oysters. Every dish we ordered was simply delicious! Nothing disappointed us.

After our hearty lunch, we drove to Drimoleague in West Cork, to have our 1 night experience of glamping! Meaning, camping! This is the top 5 best memories of our family trip. We slept in a pod for the night surrounded by cows, sheeps & ducks. U cld hear the cows mooing whilst sleeping. It felt so surreal. Best part was sitting infront of a bonfire w my fam!

 When i saw this huge poster with tt phrase, it made me laugh out loud. Twins found it funny too. Never thought of it tt way. Hahaha.

 Wearing a dress i bought from shopmegagamie.com

 This photo cracks me up every single time! I call this "Nik's angry blow".

 Tt's how i took close shots and videos of the cows using my GoPro! Lol.

 This very kind man here is my brother's friend father. He showed us how he feeds the cows, & even saw the after birth of a baby cow. It was so cool. This man is filled with so much kindness he was such a good host! Their family owns the place.

I will never forget this day. All of us crammed up in a small room trying to keep warm. The long walks we took surrounded by God's wonderful creations. Toasting marshmellows by the fire. Playing the swing w my siblings. Watching the cows and sheeps graze. Watching momsie tear up when the emcee called out Sean's name as he walked up on stage to receive his certificate. It was such an amazing day i wld love to travel back to tt time, to experience it all over again. Tt day, i felt extremely contented (:
Brother is now a doctor (:
