This would probably be the second year that I told the universe that I’d complete the Christmas dawn masses, last time I got to complete it was 2 or 3 years go. This year, I’m planning to make a bit of a sacrifice of waking up early and walking 4 blocks to get attend mass in Carmelites church.
I have been the best person this year, in fact this year could have been the worst person I could be - spiritually.
And even through I’ve been ungrateful to my creator by abandoning him, He still has blessed me with so much more, and I would like to thank him for continuously having his back.
This afternoon, I started to feel feverish and now it has developed into a fever. But even if my body would be too tired to walk to Church, I’d still try to finish what I promised myself I would do.
Christmas Gift Suggestion? A House and Lot!
Was there ever a time when you just didn’t know what to give friends and colleagues for Christmas? Buy them a HOUSE and LOT!
By house, I mean a Ginger Bread house made with love by Chef Anton Gomez of The Gingerbread Dream Company. Kala niyo ha!
It’s a more fun Festive Season at the Marco Polo Plaza
Tis the season to be jolly - Not. That’s the Grinch in me talking, and although Christmas is not my favorite holiday, I couldn’t pass up Marco Polo Plaza Hotel’s invitation to their yearly Tree lighting ceremonies.
Food tripping to Spain with Dos Hermanos
Meet Fonso, the guy behind Dos Hermanos. You must wonder, if it’s Dos Hermanos, who’s the other one? The other hermano is Fonso’s brother, who came up with the idea of making their own Spanish Chorizo recipe and distribute it to restaurants in Manila. He named the business in homage to him.
But Fonso is running his start-up food venture by himself. He makes sure that his ingredients are fresh by personally purchasing them, cooking them in his home kitchen and assures that his food is top notch when delivered or sold in food bazaars. You are guaranteed that there is a Fonso touch in every Dos Hermanos’ dish.
Now, this is what I can call a REAL DEAL.
It’s definitely “more delicious Tuesdays and Thursdays” at the “Best Buffet in Cebu City,” Café Marco!
Allow me to be emotional for 2 minutes.
When people leave, it makes me sad, it makes me want to hang on and cling to them even more. Even if they’re bad for me, I just hate the thought of leaving or being left behind. But, it is true what they say, you cannot stop people from moving on, you just have to teach yourself to be okey with it and start moving on yourself. And when you hold on to something, you don’t get to appreciate what’s coming in, what beauty it may bring in.
So I’m thankful for this weekend because I’m finally starting to feel appreciative of what’s coming in, instead of feeling sucky about people leaving.
On the other hand, I terribly miss my friend tio. I wish though to travel the world with her soon.
Those who know me well, knows that I can be a
Grinch. Don’t ask why, but Christmas is not the kind of holiday that I look forward to. Yes, I can see some eyebrows raising but hey, to each of its own.
But even if I’m a self proclaimed Grinch, I couldn’t pass up the chance to be at Marco Polo Plaza’s Christmas Tree Lighting. Can’t wait to be amazed by the glistening lights and fabulous decor of one of Cebu’s 5 star hotel.
By the way, the tree of Hope will be lighted and I hope one of you can drop by and give a little something and be a blessing to the beneficiaries of Kapuso Foundation.
Thanks again Marco Polo Plaza Cebu for the invite.
