A Busy December

Hello Fellow Bloggers!

Let me start by greeting you Belated Merry Christmas and a Blessed and Wonderful 2011!

My December was a busy month. I attended 3 Christmas parties. I got busy brainstorming with my mom and sister-in-law about what to prepare for noche buena and media noche. Since we're living in the same compound, we decided to do it the potluck way, cook our own specialties and place them on one table so that all members of the family will just get their preferred dish.

The Christmas party of the QA department (where I belong) was held Dec. 10, 2010. We decided to do it early because we do not want to stress ourselves making reservations for venues, everyone knows that December is the peak season for almost all kinds of businesses, venues included. Our department's christmas party was a huge success! Everyone came in their best attire. The food was great. One of our teammate Lhen came in the venue early to do the table settings and the highlight of the occassion was the pictorial. Vic who has an innate talent in photography brought her DSLR and newly bought continous lights and transformed one corner of the venue into a professional photography studio. Suddenly, the team is composed of one whole cast of a Telenovela.

Two days after, my kids and I attended a family reunion on hubby's side. It was held December 12, 2010. Even if hubby wasn't here or wasn't able to come home for christmas, I make sure that me and my kids are present in his relative's gathering most especially if it is a family reunion.

Lastly, I also attended our highschoolbatch's christmas party held 4 days before christmas day. This was also the reason why only few of my batchmates were able to make it. We organized it especially for one batchmate who arrived from the United States to spend the holiday season here in the Philippines. She shouldered the expenses that night. We got Big Big discount because it was held in Wishing Well, managed by one of our batchmate.

So there, it was a December full of parties and happenings.

December is indeed a month full of holiday celebrations. I attended lots of parties too, and my son enjoyed being around so many children each time. The DSLR shots were really nice and I'm actually planning to buy one. Wishing you the best in 2011!
