Today is the eve of the much-awaited Christmas day. Though our Noche Buena would be simple this time, I still look forward to twelve midnight where we share and rejoice in Jesus’ coming. I have given my gifts to mom and the kids. Let us not forget why we celebrate CHRISTmas.

It is also the 9th morning of the dawn masses but I finished Simbang Gabi last night. Two of my favorite priests had concelebrated mass last night. Fr. Pao delivered a touching and a very inspiring homily which reminds me, I love to share it on my wall so I could listen to it time and again.

Yesterday, we had Christmas lunch with Nissa’s family. I just cooked carbonara pasta and we ordered the rest online – 2 roasted chicken, grilled pork liempo and bangus. Had two flavors of ice cream for dessert. We exchanged gifts and Nissa gave me a set of bedsheet, table cloth and table runner plus a box of tea infusion from Marks and Spencer with matching tea biscuits. They also brought with them an umbrella and a broom from Baguio. Nate was so happy with his Christmas gifts, I also gave him cash for his birthday last month. Although they didn’t stay long, it was a lovely reunion. They watched Eraserheads concert the previous night and came home late so they were sleepy. Eraserheads is a famous local band in the country. Nissa told me that even if the tickets were so expensive, it was all worth it.

Come to think of it, we didn’t have picture-taking except for the two shots I took while we were praying before lunch.

Oh, my order of lumpiang shanghai has just been delivered.

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone❤🌲🥂🎄🎁
