So I guess you have an idea of what I got for Christmas. Yes, I have a new phone! A new phone isn't usually a big deal for me unlike for most people. It's just that my iPhone was stolen a few weeks before Christmas and I have been using an old Nokia phone since then.
Anyway, it's 12:21 am and I am now in danger of waking up too late again for the 9am Mass later but I just wanted to give you an idea of what Christmas looked like for me this year.
|Christmas Eve with my favorite nephew, Emilio|
|My son opening the present given by my sister.|
|caldereta, crispy pata, herbed chicken, shrimp pesto, leche flan, buko pandan -- unbelievably yummy meal I prepared for Noche Buena Feast, shared with my sister's family, our parents and my in-laws.|
We woke up early the next day so we could attend the 10:30 mass. We had to be at the church one hour before because the bishop of the diocese was the celebrant and we figured we wouldn't have a parking space if we arrived just in time.
Hunnybed, Toots, Dad and I then drove to SM Aura after the mass to watch Star Wars because my son and Hunnybed wanted to watch it badly. While waiting for the showing, we shared a chocolate cake at Mary Grace to celebrate Sofia's 8th month in Heaven.
It was my first time to see a Star Wars episode. It was okay but I don't understand the fuss about it.
We dropped by Shangri-La Hotel for a late night tea before going home.

|My son, with Star Trek's android. Don't know its name even after watching the movie with my son, Ruel and my dad yesterday. Sorry, Star Trek fans....|
So you see, Christmas Day was different this year because this is the first Time we went to see a movie on Christmas Day.
|And this is me, with my newly opened gift. |
So that's how my Christmas looked like. How did yours?
Have a blessed season everyone!
