Feeling December

Christmas Photo 2011

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.

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! 🙂

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!

Christmas Air 2012

Oh I can’t be more excited! I can smell Christmas already! It is true that Philippines celebrate the Christmas season longer than any other countries. We usually start our gift shopping when the Ber months hit the calendar. Personally, our family puts up our Christmas tree on November 1, that’s also the time I start shopping for gifts.

This year is gonna be a busy one, I need to be stronger physically, reserve energy for I will be totally active in all areas. Yes, I am all over the place and I need to be more efficient in managing my time. Already organizing 4 Christmas exchange gifts and parties (wish lists time!). Also, one big event coming up, since my Barkada and I were not able to give our donations last time to “The Sisters of the Poor”, we are gonna do it before Christmas! Woot! Woot! So happy and excited already!

There is no better way to celebrate the Christmas season but to give and give and give anything you can to help the community.

Anyway, please watch this! ABS-CBN Station ID’s will always be the best in town! ♥
