A Merry Merry Christmas

Before anything else, I would like to greet each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas. I know, my greeting was kind'a late but it is better late than never. I was so busy these last few days that I hardly had the time to update my blog.

I celebrated my Christmas quietly. I had this for my noche buena:


Panettone from Carluccios. It's a 1 kg traditional Italian bread. I was eating this the whole 24th and 25th of December. Now imagine how much weight I gained. But, I never regret eating this. It was so delicious especially with coffee though the Italians prefers to eat this with champagne or wine.

Anyway, i love shopping and getting gifts for Christmas. Since procrastination is my second name, I only shopped for my Christmas gifts last 23rd of December. But the best part was, almost all shops were on sale. I had the grandest time buying gifts for my friends and for myself (because I am like that :-).

The gifts:




My friends and I had a post Christmas Party at Lamesa Restaurant in Asiana Hotel. We had a sumptuous Filipino buffet and our yearly exchange gifts. Everybody had a grand time.

And lastly i so love the gifts that I got this year. I wanna say thank you to all the sponsors. hahaha.. i kid i kid. Thank you to all my friends who had remembered me this season. You made my heart go boom boom pow!


This wallet was the one i got from our exchange gift. Thanks CinDee!


From Ate Ruth. Perfect for my bedroom in Manila.


From Ef. I love the purple pouch and of course my spikey necklace.


My drawstring pants from Ems! Yebahh


My spiked flat shoes is love.


Ralph Lauren shades. woot woot.


Un Jardin Sur Le Toit  Hermes Perfume 

and I am saving the best for last

My ultimate wish! F.R.I.E.N.D.S dvd box set. - Thank you Santa!!! 

I wasn't able to post my wishlist but never mind. The above gifts were more than enough to make me a happy girl.

But overall, I feel so blessed this 2012. I am happy with what I've accomplished with my work, i was able to see me my dear family back in the Philippines and I have great friends. I hope God will continue to bless me this 2013 and the coming years.

Again, Merry Christmas guys!
