As 2012 being a few minutes away, people have started lighting up their firecrackers and fireworks. Well, I'm not a fan of firecrackers, but I do love watching firecrackers.
2011 has been a year of trials and triumphs. We started with a miscarriage and almost ended it with the loss of my dad. By almost, I meant the family opted to go with a happy grief way of handling it. Despite the downs, we definitely have our upside with long sought-after dreams coming true. I guess it's the reason why I couldn't come up with a Christmas wishlist - I could only be thankful of our blessings that come our way.
With 2012 coming up, people have been writing down resolutions. Unfortunately, I'm having a writer's block with that one as well. I would like, however, to continue to be a blessing to others as others have
When my officemate started giving these away as his Christmas present to each of us, we didn't know what to do with it at first because we thought it was a real (about 6" in length) little lechon piggy. Some of us didn't even want to go near it!
Sometimes, it doesn't take much to convince me to try something out. When I saw this ad today and realized that today is the last day of the promo, I dragged A, my mom, and my sister to Share Tea.
Since I'm been bitten by the Holiday lazy bug, I'm been getting lazy of doing the task of cleaning our ionizer every 2 days. So I've decided to use a reed diffuser instead.
I've been trying to look for one for weeks and they don't usually come cheap. Well, most cheap ones tend to lose their scent at a faster rate. The one that I did like was in Rockwell, but it costs Php2,400...and that's just for one unit!
I decided to give A his Christmas present early for being such a very good boy this year (and all the other years that past). I'm also expecting attention negligence coming in my way, but I figured it's still a good toy for him to have when I'm being such a mall rat and he has nothing better to do but sit in a cafe with free wifi.
People know me as a really strong person. A is known to be a really, really quiet one, and yet he managed to single-handedly make me feel better.
I first met A 7 years back when I was grieving for the loss of my firstborn, Kythe. I wasn't visiting the cemetery much then as it was very painful for me. He volunteered to take me to visit until I'm able to visit on my own. He wouldn't say much. He's just there to keep me company
Looks like Bunny Baker's done it again in helping us in our Chinese specialty cakes series! After Papa's birthday noodles cake a few months back, we were able to come up with this birthday cake design for Gwama (A's grandmother from his mother side).

Our Singaporean geomancer's back in town and in search of an addition to his list of favorite places to eat in Manila. I've been raving about this dimsum supplier that I go to who opened up a restaurant serving the best Hainanese Chicken in town, Tao Yuan (Sorry Wee Nam Kee, you've disappointed us twice in Manila. Now we have to go all the way to Singapore just to enjoy your meal.)
