Our Lil' Christmas Tree

Wrapped gifts last night and it took me lots quite a lot of time finishing it, started at 10 pm and finished at 1 am weeh that's tiring but I had a lot of fun. This morning showed our tree with gifts under the tree to my 5 yr. old niece and she was astonished to see many gifts.

Of course, we wanted to see if she has gifts for her so she read the labels and when she see her name in it, she will blurt "yey, this is mine." Our family tradition is that we will open our gifts on the the night of the 25th after the kids went on the manuhan and the 24th. The kids are excited to ope their presents as early as today. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!! More photos HERE

Our Quiapo Adventure

My bestfriend RACE and I went at Quaipo last Wednesday to accompany her to buy her new digital camera. We just met at LRT station in Santolan and there we rode the LRT where it only took us 20 mins. to Recto. Pretty fast travel time compared to if we rode the bus.

It isn't my 1st time to be there so I took my friend at Henry's Store in Hidalgo and there are quite few people inside the store buying P&S or DSLR cams. (they should give me discounts already bec. I have bought my cam lens and other accessories from them and have also referred them to my friends plus I am advertising them here at may blog hehe).

Race bought a point and shoot camera (forgot the model yay!) and it was only P7K, 7.1 MP, with free 2GB memory card and battery and charger. It's already a good price. Later on I decide to take my friend at Fans Digital just to show the camera bag that I saw. She later bought a small Kani bag suited for her needs.

Afterwards we went to Divisoria, had lunch at Max's resto coz it's also her birthday on the 21st. Happy Birthday Bes!

Too Lazy..

I am feeling a bit lazy to blog today! Sorry but I think I am feeling the Holiday Blues or whatever or maybe I'm already on the Holiday Mode.

Anyway, just to give you a quick update, been to Quiapo and Divisoria yesterday for a shopping spree and to accompany my bestfriend RACEL to buy a digicam. Went home too tired and still had a hang-over today. I have lots to share but don't feel like it today. Yay!

Letter to Santa

My 5 yr-old niece wrote a letter to Santa and look what she wanted for Christmas. Barbie doll, this is one of the never ending toy that girls would love to receive. My niece already got heaps of barbie dolls but oh boy she can't get enough of it.

She is asking Santa and me to give her one. She wanted me to buy her the mermaid Barbie or the Barbie with wings. Let us see if she will get what she wanted this Christmas.

Twitter/Digi-Scrapper Exchange Gift

Look what I got at the mail the other day. I am smiling from ear to ear when I saw this package in my desk that morning and I know it was from my Twitter/Digi-scrapper "mommy", can't reveal who is she bec. not all of us have received our gifts yet. She was supposed to get my 1st priority the Lens Hood but she said it was out of stock but it's ok with me.

Thank you thank you Mommy! Love it and I will definitely use it esp. this Christmas when we will have group shots. I don't need to run in my place when I clicked timer on, this time I can click the remote anytime I want.

Just in case you are wondering what it is then it's a CANON WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROL RC-1. Wow I am slowly completing my photography stuff.

I Hope This Isn't Late Yet

It was only just this morning when I finally went to National Bookstore to buy a Christmas cards for my relatives in the US. I was suppose to make a personalize one but I am pressed for time and became busy for the last couple of weeks so I wasn't able to make a layout. I hope these card will still make it on time, but with the slow mailing system that we have and of course due to the volume of cards being sent this season I am afraid they will no longer receive it on Christmas.

Oh well, it's my fault anyway, I should have bought and sent it much earlier. I still have to write somethin' inside and mail it tomorrow morning. What about you have you mailed your Christmas cards already esp. overseas mail or do you only prefer e-cards?

We're Havin'Toblerone Overload!!

Hello y'all, sorry for the lack of updates here lately. I was kinda busy these days updating my other blogs and need to finish some online tasks. Anyway, it's Christmas time once again and how fun it is to have relatives overseas esp. when they send chocolates. Just last week we got this big plastic bag full of toblerone and another assorted chocolates last Sunday from the OFW's that came home here in the Phils.

It was actually sent my sis and bro in law in Riyadh and we are now having chocolate overload! Yay! My family are chocoholics except me but I got to eat once in while. My nephew and Niece will be vacationing in Riyadh this Christmas and I bet they will bring more chocolates when they get back next year. Love to have the cadbury's fruit and nuts this time.

For chocoholics, don't eat too much ok, it's not good to overload yourself with too much sweets!

Manny Pacquiao wins Dream Match vs. Oscar de la Hoya

Wahoooooooooo!!! Manny Pacquiao wins at the Dream Match vs. Oscar de la Hoya. Congrats to our very own Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao for winning this much awaited bout bet. Oscar "Golden Boy" Dela Hoya.

I watched the LIVE streaming over the internet even it was a bit slow and we are all excited to see that he won. We could no longer wait bec. at Channel 7 it was still at the undercard fights. At 8th round the fight was stopped so it was a TKO at 8th round for Oscar dela Hoya with a swollen eye.

Congrats Manny, you brought another honor to our country !! Go Manny! Go Philippines!!

:Litratong Pinoy: Excited

Isa na yata sa pinakaaabangan ng mga Pinoys na galing abroad ay ang balikbayan boxes. Hay naku, kami ay laging excited pag nakakatanggap kami nya buti na lang madami kaming kamag anak sa abroad at nakakatikim ng kung ano ano.

Ito ay kuha noon pang isang taon bago magpasko, nagpadala ng 5 boxes ang aking kapatid na nasa Riyadh at makikita sa aking pamangkin na super excited sya sa laman nito at gusto ng buksan. Meron din laman na tininda namin gaya ng mga shoes etc.

Ngayong taon eh, magpapadala naman ang 1 kapatid ko na si JoyD na galing Sydney naman, ngayon pa lang eh excited na ang lahat. Kayo rin ba excited?

May iba pang lahok sa Litratong Pinoy dito.
I guess one of the most awaited by most Pinoys are the balikbayan boxes. We are all excited wehn we receieve boxes from our realtives in abroad. This photo was taken last year before Christmas as you can see my niece is very excited to open the box.

Update on my Birthday Contest....

I have seen blogger that told me that they stumbled my contest but didn't see their usernames. I also saw a blogger contestant that unsubscribe on my feed so that means she will no longer qualify eventhough she made a blog post about it.. read rule #1

I am actually overwhelmed with all the comments and the bloggers turn out so as of now I am still counting.... please bear with me.. I will announce the winners soooooonn.. I know you are excited just like me so pls. be patient hehe.. Ok im off now gotta go counting your entries again.. Have a nice week !

Yay It's December!

Holy Cow ! It's already December 1st today and few more days till Christmas and I have not yet shopped for Christmas gifts and Christmas cards. I hope I can accomplish that this week.

Finally, yesterday while my store is closed I was able to put Christmas decors here at my store to give it a little Christmas touch. People seems to be busy these days.. ahhh it's actually holiday over here as it is Bonifacio Day yesterday.

Been busy today making digital scrapbooking layouts since yesterday, my goal is to finish a photobook of my Australian vacation last Jan- April. I was bitten by the Photobook bug that my co-digiscrappers spread. I am so inspired to scrap since this morning and I am so proud of myself that I made 3 layouts. Hooray.. lol

What's keepin' you busy these days?
