Holiday 2017

Hello! Happy New Year! Yes, I’m back to the blogging world again. I’m still recovering from the holidays, organizing my thoughts, and planning goals for the year 2018. I know I have so many backlogs and stories to share and I haven’t finished my Highlights of 2017 post yet. But soon, I will finish it.  

Last December, we did not have any grand vacation but still, we’re preoccupied with get-togethers and errands. So how did our holiday go? 

December 8 

It was my son's first communion and he was so excited to taste the bread. I was happy that my husband has no work that day because it was Taguig Day so he was able to attend my son’s communion without filing a vacation leave. Thank God that he has no business trip too. We ate lunch at Nina’s Kitchen.  

By the way, I just learned that December 8, 2018 is already a Special Non-Working Holiday kaso natapat siya ng Saturday. 

December 9 

My friend organized a get-together and I suggested Hogs and Cattle Steakhouse for our venue. I already blogged about this restaurant so you can read it here

December 15 

I have psoriasis so I’m a member of PsorPhil and Asian Psorclub. It is really nice to have a support group that knows and understands my illness. So if you have psoriasis, join PsorPhil. 

Anyway, 2013 was the last time I attended our Christmas Party so I was glad that I was able to attend last month. We had potluck, games and exchange gift. While I was busy partying, my husband and son watched “Star War Last Jedi”. They got 2 free movie tickets, care of Globe Movie App. I was not able to redeem my free tickets since I cannot watch the movie with them.

Christmas Party of my son so last day of school. Yey to Christmas break. No school until January 7. 

December 23 

We delivered our gifts to my siblings, nephews, and nieces and then we went straight to my aunt’s house to visit our lola. I used to visit my grandmother every month when she was in Laguna but when she moved to Bulacan, bihira ko ng madalaw. 

December 24 

Lunch with my in-laws. We had games and exchange gifts too. My son was happy because he got a lot of gifts. We spent our Noche Buena at home. I did not cook last Christmas, my husband bought foods and cakes from Contis. We had Mango Bravo (potluck), chocolate cake, lengua estofado, corn, dinner roll, fruits, and sparkling juice. 

December 25

We woke up early and off we went to Tagaytay. It was my husband’s tradition na mag-mass sa Tagaytay every December 25. Then we had breakfast again at Discovery Country Suites, we’re supposed to eat somewhere but we ended up in Restaurant Verbena because we enjoyed our experience last time.

We went back to National Shrine of Saint Padre Pio in Sto. Tomas, Batangas because my in-laws want to go there. If I will compare it to our first visit, ang laki na ng pinagbago ng shrine. I will share it in my next post. 

December 30 

After our get-together with my orgmates last December 9, I decided to organize a get-together with my college friends. Our last get together was year 2015 pa, ang tagal na. I was happy that after a long time, we were able to meet and this time complete ang attendance. I can’t remember the last time na nacomplete kami. We had lunch at Tong Yang, it was my first time to eat there so I will share my experience in a separate post.

After our lunch, we went straight to Valenzuela for our Year-end Party. My cousin, my sister, and my SIL organized a small party. It was a simple get-together with games. It was fun because we won twice in Bingo games. Hehehe! 

December 31 

We had lunch at my in-law's house again and we celebrated New Year at home. This time I cooked tuna pasta as per my husband request, the rest bili na lang ulit. We had roast beef from Contis, ham, tuna pasta, garlic bread, leche flan, fruits and sparkling juice. I don’t really prepare a lot of food since we are just family of three, ayoko ng marami leftover. 

It was funny because after our dinner, we took a nap and nagising na lang kami na nagpuputukan na sa paligid. And wala ng gustong bumangon sa amin, I just hope maging okay naman year 2018 namin at di matulog ang grasya. Hehehe!

How about you, how's your holiday?
