Happy Holidays Guys!!
I know most of you are busy nowadays because of the never ending kainan and chismax with friends and relatives that we don’t get to see every day. Ako, I am busy with my mag-Ama. Teka, I haven’t told you that Daryl and I are living together na diba? I’ll tell you more about it on the next post.
Anyway, our Christmas was celebrated at Daryl’s side of the family. Obviously kasi, my family or me personally doesn’t celebrate Christmas talaga. I am not Catholic kasi so we don’t have Christmas Day. Don’t be sad for me, I am used to it. Since birth I never had the chance to do all Christians does every December 25th. I am just home, normal day kungbaga. I remembered when I was at an age of 7-10 I think? Nanay would bring me and my younger brother to her relative somewhere in Pasay who sells toys. She would make us mano and then her relative would ask us to choose na lang on her paninda of which toy we want as her pamasko to us. That’s how my December 25th went like. That didn’t take too long though because we stopped going there sometime after.
It’s actually the first year that James had the time to celebrate Christmas at Daryl’s side of the family. Last year kasi, we were just home. Daryl went to our house on Christmas Day lang and I think the three of us went out. Now that James is a year older and can understand things a little better than last year, we were able to enjoy the time spent on that day.
On the 24th, I went halfday off work kasi wala naman ginagawa sa office. I took advantage of the Voluntary Time off as we call it on BPOs. Mine was unpaid because I don’t have leave credits left. It was fine, I think 2 hours off of my salary wouldn’t hurt much. At 6pm, we went to Daryl’s mom and all together, off we went to Daryl’s Auntie for Noche Buena. Just before it hit 12 midnight, we’re back home to Daryl’s Mom’s house. James was so tired because he played the whole night there with his cousin. He enjoys a company of a bigger kid kasi rather than of his age.
One thing that I noticed with James is that he wasn’t sociable enough. When we got there, natuwa sa kanya his cousins, lolos and lolas but he doesn’t want to be carried by them. He wants me or Daryl only. He cries kapag kinarga sya ng iba and won’t stop unless I or Daryl get him. I think it was just normal for a toddler to be anti-social at times. I have read some mommy blogs that their kids did the same. Although I know I have to do something about it soon.
25th – was a normal day I think. We spent the whole afternoon at Daryl’s Mom’s house. Some people came. They were Daryl’s relatives and kapitbahays who were there, namamasko. Daryl’s mom openly expressed Christmas by giving money to every individual that came.
Sana ako din naambunan..
Pero loss ang beauty ko at ang kagwapuhan ni Daryl kasi si James lang ang binigyan! Hahaha.
Christmas is for kids lang daw.. Bawal ang kids at heart. Hmp!
All day long, we ate and ate and ate.. Welcome fat! Lagi na lang New Year’s Resolution ko ang pumayat! Hayy.. We also went to Mall of Asia because Daryl's Mom thought we are going home at night kaya she asked us to buy her a dozen of Krispy Kreme. Mall of Asia is just a kembot away from their place kaya off we go pero sobrang traffic at daming tao grabe! OA talaga as in.
|Tried Krispy Kreme's Kruffin. It was nice specially with that whip cream inside - 40++pesos/ea|
At night, we were just playing around. I am chatting with officemates online, sending wacky photos of myself until I noticed this two. They were busy watching Pororo on mobile.
Daryl’s kumpare asked us to go to their house so they can uwind a bit. James and I came along to play with little Karl, his kumapre’s younger son while I do some chismax with the mudrakel.
26th – I suppose to go to work pero the night before, I SMS my boss to see if we have an available slot for another time off. Daryl requested kasi for another night stay at his Mom’s house. Since approved naman ni boss, go ahead. This time, we slept naman all afternoon while Daryl’s away. Not literally away, nag dodota lang with friends. Grabe parang bata pa din! Hayy.. In the afternoon, we headed to Metropoint for some reason. Sumama lang talaga kami ni James sa lakad ni Daryl. Hehehe. We played at Timezone. We bought a card for 100pesos so we can play with their machines. Sayang lang walang playground for kids. I'll blog about it on a separate post. We went home the night of 26th since Daryl have to work on a Satuday. Booo!!
27th – James and I stayed all day at home. We spent our time at Nanay’s house watching Hell’s Kitchen of Gordon Ramsay. Younger brother bought a DVD copy kasi of Season 8 so DVD marathon kami until Yaya has to go home early at 4:30p because maglalaba pa daw sya sa house nila. Okay, ang lenient ko ha. Movie marathon stopped. James and I went na lang to Puregold to do some grocery. I realized the last time I went, I was alone. Kaya pala hirap na hirap ako that time, may kasama akong makulit na bata. He was sitting on the basket while I push the small cart. I overheard a family saying “Hala! Tingnan mo yung bata oh! Ang taba!” I felt flattered kasi somehow, Thank Goodness, hindi sickly and bagets ngayon! Yipeeee!! Oppps, wag sana mausog!! =)
Daryl went home really late then left really early because of a basketball game. He arrived around 11am na. Lenient me part 2. Instead of the nagging portion, I kept myself shut when he arrived and true enough, silent treatment works!! Hahaha.. he said he’s sorry and will make bawi na lang. Ok fine.. ok pala yung ganon no?! Less talk, less stress, less drama.. Whew! The night of the 28th was spent like this:
Me - went to palengke ; Daddy – hugas pwet ni James because of poop
Me – cooking ; Daddy – nagkakabit ng lock ng pinto and hugas pwet again because James poop the second time.
Hahahahaha.. third time actually. Real first time was in the morning and I have to do it then bathe him after. =)
Last night was cuddling time before we slept.
Being together is great no?! I felt contented kahit we don’t spend our weekends malling or going places. With traffic and the amount of people sa mga malls? I’ll choose to stay at home na lang.. Next thing to do? Plan our movie date with Daryl then our First New Year’s Eve then hopefully, making it official Mr and Mrs. =)
Enjoy the remaining days of 2014 and Let's welcome 2015 with a BANG!
