Last Saturday I managed to host our Year-end cum Christmas party. It's a barbecue dinner set beside a big swimming pool and along side is a very nice function room.
Our theme was Hawaiian Luau in which I highly suggested, planned and organized. Thankfully our boss liked the idea and supported the plan. Our guest are mainly employees, employee's spouses and kids.
I prepared three games for adult and two activities for the kids. There are also gifts for the kids. A lot of red and white wine, champagnes and beers. The food was superbly good.
They all enjoyed the party. Our boss even commented "it's a success you can see they are all happy". And also one of our French-colleague said "just perfect". I also commended my two Filipino colleagues for helping out in coming up with this event. I am so delighted that the party was a big success and hearing those comments, appreciation and what-not is heart-warming. Glad they appreciated the effort.
We'll be back home two days from now. And I am so excited. Can't barely wait for the day of our flight. After oner-year-eight-months of staying here in Singapore. We have experience celebrating Christmas and New Year here but back home is incomparable. Filipino celebration is the best.
There are a lot of things we plan to do. List of activities that our family has prepared. Reunions, dinner and lots of talks awaits us. Another thing is I'll be seeing my house again. I miss our house. And am just darn excited about it. Can't wait.
And it will be so nice to celebrate Christmas and New Year in our home country. I love the celebration we have back home and looking forward for all those stuff, the so-called "Paskong Pinoy". I miss everything back home. Two more days to come.
I must admit Christmas is one of my favorite celebration or festivity so to speak aside from my birthday. Every year I look forward for Christmas. The merry making it gives. The gathering that every family holds is undeniably fun.
Last year, I didn't put any Christmas tree but rather a simple Christmas lights and some decorations filled our home. But this year I started putting up our Christmas tree last November 23. Since my son knows what it is and the reason why we are putting up Christmas decorations and all. While my daughter is so interested on the hanged decorations. She loves the colors. I love hearing from him the words "I like our Christmas tree mum, it's beautiful".
This year our decorations on our Christmas tree is a blend of gold and red with gold Angel topper. I simply like the colors. So happy and brilliant. But I remain it simple.
And today is the first day of December. Few more days to come before Christmas. Happy December everyone!
Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.
