Foxy

My first digital camera was a cute little pink Cybershot U that I insisted on buying purely because of kawaii factor. I dragged my Kuya to Megamall in search of the maarte 1.3 MP cam (wala pang zoom!) and we celebrated my purchase at Almon Marina. { One of the first shots from that camera } I still have that…

Christmas Eve

It’s been four years. It doesn’t really feel that long unless I read my previous entries and I’m proven wrong. It has been that long. Five years ago was the last Christmas we spent with you, in an unfamiliar place that almost reminded me of Shake, Rattle, and Roll. I watched you get wrapped in sheets of powdered carbon, laying…

Holiday Rush

Last year, I was super efficient and got my Christmas shopping done at least a month before Christmas. This year, I panic bought gifts on the last weekend before Christmas eve! I had a plan, though. To get to the mall right when it opens and get out before the madness starts at lunch time. Got to Megamall at 10:30…

Happy Holidays

Two years since the first. First in this new old home. And I’m happy to report that this Christmas was not necessarily the loneliest one without you. It’s been a while since I got excited about Christmas. Buying presents, wrapping gifts, preparing Noche Buena (although I can’t take credit for that. It was all All-Around Pedro). We heard Mass as…

She’s Making a List

My family is known as The Last Minute Shoppers. We’d shop for gifts on the eve of Christmas (yes, as in December 24. I’m not kidding.). I don’t remember why we did this, but I think it was some twisted notion that there are less people shopping at that time (not true). But this morning, I headed over to the…
