Christmas Party!

I almost forgot to share our company party. It was held last December 13 at the Pampanga Convention Center. It was a Saturday, and it's the only available schedule of the venue which is the only place we, 1,000 plus city hall employees, can be accommodated.

The main program was the Dance Contest among departments and the theme of the contest is folk dances. This year the participants of the contest are the department/ division/ section heads since every year the rank and file employees are usually the participants. The city councilors had their part too..

Then, of course, there was also raffle draws - the most awaited part - wherein I won a half cavan of Denorado Rice!!! hehehe.. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to win the major prize - P20,000 cash tsk tsk!

After the party, my hubby and I went to our friend's house (Alain's) for a get together with my hubby's college friends and am the only gal. We drunk a few bottles of beers and a soothing coffee after. We arrived home around 1:30am - we were exhausted. :-)

Giant Lanterns!

It's 6 days to go before Christmas! And we haven't started our shopping list! Urgh! We might gate crash Robinsons Starmills tomorrow and take chance of the Midnight Sale. Incidentally, tomorrow will be the Giant Lantern Festival and it will be held at Robinsons for the first time (usually it's in SM).. Am pretty sure the mall will be crowded with lots of lots of people.. Sigh!

Anyway, let me share with you the pride of Pampanga - the Christmas Capital of the Philippines (City of San Fernando) where you can only find the Giant Lanterns! Yep! These giant lanterns are eighteen (18) feet in diameter and with an average of 5,000 bulbs! Imagine that?!


Here's a closer look when it's lighted.. It's really amazing to see those dancing lights..!


Take a look of the Parade of Giant Lanterns from differents Barangays of the city.


Hope you could watch the festival.. =)

Friendships get together

I am alive again! haha… I have quite busy days the past week..

After my 2-day seminar last November 30 (Sunday), I went to SM to meet up my Friendships (high school barkada) in Philippines – only 5 are remaining. That day was special as we have a complete attendance, this rarely happens. Also, 2 among us including my hubby are having their birthday this December. Our initial point of meeting is at UCC Café Shop then we headed to TEMPURA resto for the most awaited dinner. Take a look of our pics at Tempura:

(right-left): me, hubby, jowette, jorrel

(right-left): memond (rhia's hubby), rhia, grace, dexter (grace's hubby)

While waiting at Tempura, Jorrel and Wette sneak out to Breadtalk to buy mini-cakes for the birthday celebrants. Look at the future models of Breadtalk:

Unfortunately, we forgot to take photos of our food due to hunger.. ~tsk tsk~ All of us had a full-sized stomach! After dinner and chit-chatting, we thought of having our photo opps..

Apparently, snow is everywhere. ~wink~

My friend here dreams to be a model… pity him tsk tsk.. hehe


Feeling niya siya si piglet.. Sobrang publicity na yan Jorrel!!

Men do change after Marriage?

We had a 2 consecutive day celebrations. Yep! December 4 to 5 are big celebrations for me and hubby.. Why? – December 4 is our Wedding Anniversary and December 5 is my hubby’s birthday! Well, good thing for me as I can able to save my gift for hubby – 2 in 1 gift - --wink--

We had a very simple celebration. On our anniversary, we ate breakfast at Chowking before going to work. The next day, after office, we ordered out meals from Jollibee and watched the last full show of “Twilight” movie. The movie was so great; no doubt it’s number one! How I wish hubby is a vampire.. hahaha

The cinema was almost full when we arrived. Luckily, we got seats at the balcony. My hubby was seated at my left. Then, I’ve noticed that we were surrounded by couples and they are all in hugging position. While finding my comfort zone at my seat, I unconsciously rested at my left. Then my hubby jokingly uttered “Bakit ka naka-lean dito??!” I was shocked and ashamed to hear that. Nakakainis.. Then I recalled and told myself.. “Nung magboyfriend pa tayo eh todo yakap ka na parang naka-glue pa kamay mo sa pagyakap! Hmmp!” After that I moved away from him! Hmmp! I thought he was joking at first and eventually he will wrap his arms around me but I’m wrong! The whole time we’re watching movie we didn’t even get closer, as if we were not related. In fairness to my hubby, there are still sweet gestures he does/ continue after our marriage, 50%-60% I guess. But it is a fact that men really do change after marriage.. Isn’t Sises? I don’t mean total change but there are certain sweet things that husbands stop doing/ showing after years of marriage. Sometimes I tend to miss that gestures it makes me feel “I‘m wanted”. Well, I can only make face about it and can live with that as long as my hubby is loyal with me. Am I right?

Christmas Party!
