T’was around 2:30 in the morning and I’m headed home. The jeepney driver dropped me off a gasoline station and said I need to transfer to a tricycle. That’s fine since I really need to take a trike to get home safely. As the engine roared to life, the cold wind hit my face. I KNEW IN MY HEART, Christmas started for me. You see, I am the type of person who loves July and December so much. Both reasons are pretty obvious, I was born on the month of July (a Leo, roar! Lol!) and December… who wouldn’t love it? Season of merry-making and endless breakfasts, lunch outs and dinner time. Am excited in all aspects, hope you all feel the same. 🙂
December 24 morning, I decided to prep my nails for Christmas. Was not able to squeeze in some time to visit the a parlor or spa for some mani and pedi pampering. Not too bad right? I used to do my own nails before so I didn’t have a hard time.
The birthday girl, you know I love you sister! My wish is that you’ll become one of the greatest nurse ever, do not copy me, haha! I am the maarte one, haha!
Videoke time while waiting for our visitors 🙂
Time for some break, cake eating time!
So proud of my make up, love the simplicity, nude gloss lipstick and eyeliner only.
And my golden pair of earrings completes my night of course!
I am her fave and she will be mine 🙂
Let’s start opening up the presents! Most exciting part of the night!
Wonderful bag from mom, thank you so much! ♥
Siblings and cousin Buds with their gifts, all smiles!
My gifts, from monito monita, to gifts from dear friends, relatives, siblings and parents. Thank you thank you, you made me so happy! I loved them all!
Left home early, went to the office and had a solo time with Hilda. My peppermint and fave table with my holiday wallet.
We walked past The Mind Museum, ped lanes, street lights and I got to see BGC’s Christmas stuff up close. They look so cute and full of stars! Didn’t notice them at all! 🙂
My view while waiting for the clock to strike 12, the moon and a star.
Jeepney’s from the Philippines, this is my bet! Mabuhay!
Loved walking in these wedges from H&M!
Officially Christmas, love my outfit, denim peplum dress! ♥
Braid them up girls!
I look tall in here, lol! Because no one’s beside me!

Lunch treat from Red Crab, thanks Tito Al, we really enjoyed it!
Yum, yum, yum!
I got a victim, haha! I am a pro when it comes to eating you Mr. Crab! Sorry 🙂
Sissy and her big butt, lol!
With our pretty cousin, Allen! Tall isn’t she? Well, I am used to it, I am the smallest! Always! Haha!
So that was how I spent the 24th and 25th of Chrismas, still got a lot of photos but that would summarize them all. Hoping everyone had a great one. Always nice to spend the holidays with our loved ones, family and friends.
From the heart to you, have a joyful one and may all the desires of your soul be granted!
This is the month where you don’t know how to squeeze in all the events in a month. Christmas party here, dinner there and exchange gifts everywhere. How can one decline invitations from special people? Family, relatives, friends and old friends? Plus, add some volunteer work, time for Christmas shopping, and fixing “monito monitas”. I have arranged five sets of exchange gifts. (sorry for being so active in everything, I do not know where to place my energy, Lol!)
Well, this is my favorite time of the year. So I am really excited to wake up each day and make the most out of it.
Hoping everyone will have a busy BUT fun December!
I planned to stay at home today since I was sick last week and my body needed some rest. Then again, how can I resist “family time” temptation? Aside from that, sisters Rose and Kriss wrestled me to death when I declined to go the first time. We went out with our good ‘family friends’ Tita Lhen, NJ, and Em.
We first visited Glorietta, walked a bit, took some photos and sipped fruit juices while mom accompanied Tita Lhen for some bag shopping. NJ, made me laugh so hard with his funny stories, hmmm… very good! Guys should really know how to make good impressions these days.
After that we headed straight to Mall of Asia and had dinner at Harbor View. Good thing it was not raining or anything earlier.
Do not forget to try out their roasted chicken! Tastes good! And as always… bottomless iced tea, finished 5 glasses!
Spent some time walking along the bay… so many lovers!
Big smiley face! Lovely wheel right, so colorful!
Partners in crime: LJ, JL, Rose, Kriss and Em
Lights! Lights! Lights!
Baby, let’s cruise the night away!
So there! Hopefully everyone had a nice start of December… let’s make each day count, share the love!
Join me as I take a new challenge. At first, I am only planning to have a picture with 12 Christmas trees but who knows? I might end up with a lot!
