Rockin Red Christmas

Hello Everyone! How's your Christmas celebration? Hope everyone had fun time with their family and friends. I've been really busy for the past few days for the preparation of this season. It always happen that we do the grocery shopping a day before Christmas. See that crowd? It's so huge - as expected. (SM Supermarket) Seeing that bunch of people in the supermarket we didn't attempt to go inside, we knew it would take us too much time so we go and do the grocery shopping at Robinsons instead.

Here are Parols displayed the SM's parking area from Taytay, Cainta, Tanay, Binangonan, San Mateo and Baras. I dont know which parol won but i love the Cainta's parol - the yellowish around it is suman and landmarks in Cainta with Belen in the center.. Yey! Of course its my bet (tagadito eh haha)

Oh, heres the finished look of our Christmas tree.. pretty reddish right? Hehe! Honestly, i've been dreaming and wanting a Pink Christmas but since we just re-use our last year's decors there's no choice hihi! So postponed for this year, maybe next year i'll collect as early as i can some pinkish decors for our tree. Or if there's enough budget maybe buying a Pink Tree is really a dream come true..yey! So this year, Its red themed Christmas - obviously.

I wrapped the gifts on the 24th, very very busy as in, I am cramming like i was doing a lesson plan, a project maybe that has deadline and needs to be submitted at once. was really tagaktak-pawis moments as i rush wrapping the gifts because i also need to make desserts for Noche Buena.

We prepared Ham, Crispy Pata, Menudo, Lecheflan, Ube Halaya, Buko Salad, Refrigerated cake, Ice cream and mixed fresh fruits. Not too much handa since we're just few in the house.

No pictures of the foods - tamad mode. hihi!

After that shopping rush, we attended Christmas Eve's mass at the church in our subdivision at 7:30pm.

Two snowmen dropped by our house and celebrated with us, they brought a wine and said cheers last Christmas Eve..chos! hehehe.

After eating, we opened the gifts and took some pictures. Me and my sis - as usual has the same pair of top. (Long time ago when we were small kids my mom used to buy us same set of clothes that look us identical - even until now we continue that habit) Everytime we shop, there's always something that we buy in pairs - mostly clothes and shoes.

On the 25th, we attended Christ-mass in Antipolo Cathedral. The priest' homily is that the best gift we can ever give is to love one another as how Jesus has loved us too much that He died on the cross to save us. He also mentioned that the gifts under the tree or the foods in the table are nothing if there's no love in the family. Truly, Christmas is the best time to have quality time with our family and friends - reuniting with everyone.

After the mass, we headed to Filinvest, Marcos Highway to visit the featured house with bonggacious christmas lights. So there it was really nice in actual view. After 10 minutes or so, we drive off back to Antipolo for an overlooking city lights view before we go home.

 "Tis the season to eat plenty falalalalalalala!" 

My Holiday Season Formula

desserts indulgence + cheat diet = chubbyness - detoxify + fruits and veggie diet
 = back in shape for 2013 

 So that's what my Christmas 2012 is all about.. How about yours?
