Christmas 2011

Christmas 2011 was one of the more intimate celebration we had in years. We usually spend it with our extended families, or out of town. This year, it was indeed a family affair. In a way, I didn't rush through the preparations. It also didn't matter much that my first attempt to do kimbap (Korean Rice Roll/Sushi) failed big time. Haha! :-D I guess I'm better off buying ready-made kimbap to the ahjumma sellers. ;-D Albeit my Japchae (Korean Glass Noodle) was stellar. Yay! Except when I did it for the second time for my birthday yesterday, it was a bit on the salty side. :-( Oh well! Anyhow, on with more fun stuff, gifts, outfits, and food. ;-D

Food Fest ...Apple Pie, Ham (must have every time!), Kimbap, Snack Treats from SM Department Store (Vinamit JackFruit Chips (super love these! ;-P) Rgies Buttterschotch etc.) For this year, we decided to go Korean ++ themed-meals, we had samgyeopsal and Japchae.
I made a trip to the Korean Grocery to get all these, and had to go back for more...Addicted much! ;-D
For this Christmas, we decided to go for White (Black & White for me) dress theme. OOTD is White Top: ForMe/ Black Vest: Thrifted / Ruffled/Tutu Skirt: SM Department Store/  Heart Necklace and Ring: Accessorize/ Leather Studded Bracelet: SM Department Store
My Son Chase with a Garfield White Polo from SM Department Store and  Jeans from Debenhams
I'm mighty proud of Chase. He was able to wait for Christmas Eve to open his gifts. It's actually an admirable trait of him, ever since. ;-D We didn't get him much toy gifts because he has a room full of toys, so it's all up to his grandparents and godparents to shower him with more toys. 
Happy Chase! :-D

As for our gifts, hubby got himself some more new gadgets. While, I got even more pairs of FitFlop. Yay! I'll be back to do a post of them. ;-D

My warmest Season's Greetings to you and your family! Have a Blessed Holidays! Cheers! ;-D

Thanks Clair! :) He's getting friendlier with the cam, before I had to force him pa. Haha. :)

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
