Home >> Holidays >> Merry Christmas / Maligayang Pasko :)

So how was your Christmas? It is close to midnight and about to end here in the Philippines though the Christmas tree will be up until January. I love the season (but not the traffic!) mostly because I get a high from seeing all the gaily-decorated lights in buildings and people’s houses.

Mr. Z took care of the noche buena last night, mostly because I was too tired from working the graveyard shift the night before. We kept it simple on the table: steamed veggies, shepherd’s pie and this yummy pineapple upside down cornmeal cake …

Mr. Z's pineapple upside down cake was yummy:)

On Christmas day, the priest’s homily dealt with giving importance to the Giver of the Gifts instead of the gifts we receive itself. Mostly though, nothing beats the joy of seeing my children’s faces light up when they open their presents. Props to the hubby for giving me Tiffany since we got married. He’s so loyal that way 🙂


In other news, people who chose to fly Cebu Pacific got a dose of the flight attendants’ Christmas dance. I just saw this video on the web. Ironically, I’ve chosen to fly Philippine Airlines the whole of 2011 🙂

Hope you, dear readers, enjoy the rest of the holiday season. Let’s pray that 2012 won’t be as bad as others predict it to be …. after all, it’s just a movie 😉
