Weekend Story: More Christmas Shopping with Family + TAP Christmas Party

On Friday night, the hubby and I drove to Bacoor with Mame and my sister Jodie. We did some Christmas shopping (our wallets are starting to cry already, haha) at Alabang Town Center. We also heard the anticipated mass at St. Jerome & Sta. Susana Parish beside it. Then we went to Festival Mall to do more Christmas shopping and have dinner. On Sunday, we traveled back to Manila and after dropping off Mame and Jodie at their place, we drove straight to Megatent in Pasig for the hubby’s car club’s Christmas Party. It was a fun weekend and once again, happy memories were created which are now stored in our hearts. Life doesn’t have to be complicated. That’s why I always remind myself to choose happiness all the time.

In other news, malapit na mag-Pasko!!!

Weekend Story: Two Christmas Get-Togethers, A Visit to St. Pio Shrine and A Quick Trip to Divisoria

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.

Christmas Raffle

Christmas or not, I’m not really lucky when it comes to raffle draws. I’d win in a parlor game or some random contest but not in a raffle draw. My raffle winnings are few and far between. I don’t even remember them anymore.

Christmas parties, or any party for that matter, usually have raffle draws to infuse fun and excitement to the event. Raffle draws, especially when expensive items are at stake, make the crowd alert and happy. Actually, even if you’re raffling off some cheap plus size prom dresses, I bet people would be too thrilled to win them.

Time to Party

Christmas parties are always fun. Just like birthdays, they only happen once a year which make them more special. Our first Christmas party as a married couple was the one in our village where we met and socialize with both new and old neighbors that we don’t get to see everyday.

While most parties are uncomplicated, there are some that require you to show some efforts. Like those that impose a costume for the attendees. But you have to admit there’s fun in that, ayt? For this party I’m going to that requests people to show up in a themed attire, for instance, I feel like wearing one of those Fur Cowboy Hats to make myself unique. Why not? Haha.

Village Christmas Party

Last night was fun. We attended our first Christmas party together as a married couple. It was the Christmas party of the subdivision we live in. It started at 7:00 p.m. and ended a few hours after. The hubby is one of the officers of the new homeowners association so we got VIP seats.

There was a program, a raffle draw, some parlor games, some dance and song numbers (to entertain the crowd) and a lot more. Food was catered (there was lechon!) and some officers even brought homemade dishes for everyone to share. The hubby was requested to bring some alcoholic drinks and thanks to our S&R membership, we were able to buy some cheap but quality wines. The party ended with people dancing to the tunes of 90’s music. We headed home after the “exchange gift” part because the hubby was already sleepy and I was starting to feel tipsy from the red wine I drank.
