Merry Christmas to all of my dear Mindanaoan.com readers, subscribers, followers! I sincerely hope that you had a meaningful and blessed Christmas.
For me, Christmas is when you realize that you have so many things to be thankful for and that there are many things money simply cannot buy. Christmas is a great reminder that the basic things in life are truly the most important.
What about you? What does Christmas mean to you? :)
I also have an extra thing to be thankful for this Christmas. Someone I admire sent me a very sweet video message congratulating me for my recent win as Mindanao Blogger of the Year 2013 and Best Lifestyle Blog awardee !
Hi Bamboo :) [yes, my face is a little beet red right now *blush*]
Bamboo made this cute fan sign, too! Super special thanks to ...
Merry Christmas, folks! Or in what we say in my area in Mindanao - Malipayong Pasko! Merry Christmas to all of you - malipayong Pasko kaninyong tanan :)
I'm writing this from Cebu City - where one of my brothers now work. My entire family is here in Cebu right now to celebrate Christmas with my brother. It's such a blessing that he doesn't have work on the 24th and 25th - so at least my family will be complete on those days. He goes back to work on the 26th, see. My other two brothers will be back in Mindanao on the 26th while my mother and I will be home come 30th. It'll be quite a rough goodbye since we won't see my brother again in a while. Parting is such sweet sorrow in cases like these.
Anyways, our Christmas Eve was loads of fun. Loads of laughter, overflowing food, movie mara...
From my family to yours - Merry Christmas! (Malipayong Pasko) I hope the past year has been fruitful, peaceful and definitely merry for you and your family. My 2008 has been (and still is!) amazing - I have traveled to more places this year, attended more events and festivals around Mindanao, met more interesting people around the Philippines and tried my hand on more things such as photography, white water rafting and Photoshop dabbling! I intend to continue this amazing journey next year, 2009 - the Year of the Ox. Hopefully, I will travel even farther, increase my list of friends, meet more people, help more strangers, hone my talents more and just become a well-rounded, warmer, more confident, more courageous person. Expect bigger things here in Mindanaoan as well!
Once again, Merry...
Took this picture of the huge Christmas tree found in what's considered as the third largest shopping mall in the world, SM Mall of Asia (MOA). It's a pretty Christmas tree - it had lots of trimmings such as Christmas balls and stars, large gifts at its foot and loads of Christmas lights. The tree is located right in front of the French Baker branch and right beside the mini castle at the Entertainment Hall section of the Main Mall.
I'm not too sure if this Christmas tree is larger than the one in Cubao, though.
What do you think of MOA's Christmas tree?
By the way, I found it rather interesting to see a lot of families milling around and about MOA that day. You see, we went there on a Tuesday morning, which is supposed to be work day, yes? Makes you hope that the parents went t...
