Last weekend was epic. I had lots of fun and laughter and shared stories and happy memories with the people that matter to me. How I wish this long holiday break won’t end so I’d have the luxury of time to meet up with more people!
On Saturday, I attended two Christmas get-togethers — one with my college friends and the other with my former office colleagues. Both were fun and memorable. I really had a great time.

When I got married, I made it clear with the hubby that I wanted to spend Christmas with my side of the family every year. We actually arrived at a setup that suits the both of us — Christmas at my parents’ place in Naic with my family and New Year at our marital home in Bacoor with his. This way, we get to be with our respective families on these two special occasions. And so far, it’s been working greatly for us. Everybody happy.

This year, our Christmas traditions as a family (my side) live on. The hubby and I spent Christmas with my family in Naic.

If you have a music lover friend or family member, what would you get him/her for Christmas? I can only think of a few things. Why not a personalized CD with a compilation of his/her favorite songs? How about a ticket to a local concert? Or better yet, a gift certificate to some record bar or online music store?
If he/she’s talented and can play a musical instrument, why not gift him/her with a badass guitar from the Gibson launch? There are actually more fun stuff to give them, you just have to think a bit.

Have you started decorating for Christmas? I haven’t. Good thing we just have a tiny house and decorating it for the holiday season is easy. The hubby and I plan to work on it this coming weekend. Hopefully, we don’t get lazy by then. Haha.
We just have a few Christmas decors like some lanterns and garlands and Christmas balls. No, we don’t have a Christmas tree. Yet. I wonder if there are christopher radko christmas ornaments available in our local malls? I heard they have items that work best in tiny houses like ours.
