10 days before Christmas

And I haven't wrap a single gift yet :( I don't want to stress my self though so I am not cramming, have bought a few gift items for our nieces and nephews and will try to buy few more for our godchildren just in time for our church thanksgiving party on Sunday. 

Like last year, I am organizing a gift giving event for our ministry again and this time our beneficiaries are the kids from San Luis,Aurora-   their area was badly hit by typhoon Lando last October. We are giving them small toys, hygiene stuff and cookies :) I hope that will make them smile and happy this Christmas.


I dreamt of my  Tatay last night, in my dreams, he was holding my hand and guiding me to a path going to our relatives place. It is in this time of season that I miss him most, because during Christmas, he gets excited, he plans for the food and whats not, he loves to open gifts from us. I guess our Christmas will never be the same again without him.

BUT, I refuse not to be on the celebrative mood this Christmas. I refuse not to be happy. I am blessed, I have family to spend the holidays and all my nieces and nephews are excited as usual.

10 more days to go and it's Christmas :) I hope you enjoy your time with your love ones!

Durian Ice Cream

This is DURIAN, Mindanao's most famous fruit.

It smells bad,ok really really bad but they said it tastes good. I can't bring my self to taste it because of the smell, I attempted many times (recently on our trip to Davao this last weekend) but I can't take it talaga.

Surprisingly, the durian ice cream is altogether different. When I had a taste of it last Monday (still in Davao) It was good and I liked it! No smell and no after taste of the durian fruit :)

I guess I'm okay now with the durian ice cream, I'm giving up on the fresh fruit. :)
