Had a wonderful weekend! On Friday, went to a fancy-pants Korean restaurant for NYC’s first Korean restaurant week with E. Did a zombie run in Brooklyn’s Floyd Bennett Field on Saturday. Pretty proud of my performance during the first of many obstacles runs even though I got infected within the first mile & caught a cramp after climbing an obstacle wrong. Sunday saw dinner at Jekyll & Hyde in downtown nyc with the bf & his family for a sibling birthday. Can’t wait to see what Halloween brings!

SO THAT’S HOW THAT FUCKING WORKS
In Hawaii the elderly is Grandma or Grandpa (Nana or Tata) anyone significantly older than you is Aunty or Uncle… Around your age and you grew up with them is a cousin and if your friends or cousins have kids they are your nieces/nephew.
Everyone with the same last name as you: Cousin
Anyone older than you: Uncle or Aunty
Anyone is really old: Grandpa or Grandma.
You have to remember this is culture-specific. I remember getting into fights with my college roommate because he didn’t accept the fact that different cultures recognize familial relationships differently. Filipino familial system is a lot more fluid and inclusive than this.
