Last Christmas was celebrated at our family home in Naic, Cavite. The hubby and I joined my side of the family there for the much-awaited birthday of Jesus Christ. Our Noche Buena feast consisted of traditional fares like Pinoy spaghetti, roasted chicken (courtesy of Sr. Pedro this time for my convenience, haha), pork BBQ, puto flan, bread, fruit salad, and of course, ham and queso de bola. It was the same Christmas menu that’s always a hit with our family. Simple but delicious and oh so comforting. Burp! We also did a photo shoot which has been a family tradition ever since we celebrated Christmas in Naic five years ago (if I’m not mistaken).
The Start of Christmas Shopping
My Christmas shopping has started and so has my wallet’s draining off its contents. Rockwell Powerplant Mall is not my kind of place to shop (pricey is a mild word!). Yesterday, we were there to watch Breaking Dawn Part 1 only. (It was the movie date I promised to my sister eons ago.) I, however, ended up buying two items in the mall: a pair of shoes from Payless and a wallet from Charles and Keith.
If I’d have free time this week, I’d go to Divisoria or Greenhills already to buy Christmas presents. I’m particularly itching to visit the night market at Divisoria because normally, that is where I get nice items at dirt-cheap prices! I miss the crowd there (minus the pickpocketers, of course). And the noise and the many goods waiting to be bought. I simply love Divisoria!
