    hindi e, kasi it had been a hard year.

    first, my friend was diagnosed with leukemia and we all pooled together for him. he has 4 daughters who were going to stop school so that he could have his treatment. instead we gave all that we could for his family, we gave them most of our savings. his daughters continued going to school, and he has been responding well to his chemotheraphy and is already on remission. pera lang yung binigay namin, buhay ng friend namin at future nung 4 na bata yung kapalit.

    then just last october my father had a heart attack. so what was left of our savings got spent for his hospitalization. talagang zero balance yung bank book naming mag-asawa. ngitian na lang kami ng misis ko. sabi ni misis ipon na lang daw ulit next year.

    then 3rd bday ng adopted daughter namin 2 weeks ago. e di ba hindi pwede palampasin yung 1st, 3rd saka 7th bday? so kahit konti syempre may handa. ok naman, nairaos din at masaya naman ang anak namin.

    and now, this xmas i will be spending it here on the oil rig. i won't be home till january 6. malungkot si misis, homesick ako. magsisimba na lang daw sila sa pasko then have X'mas lunch with my parents. walang pera, pero ok lang.

    next Xmas na lang daw sabi ni misis, at least next year nasa pinas ako buong Xmas saka new year.

    call me a senti freak..but i really get a high whenever i see streets lighted with christmas lights....

    sarap sa mata...ang saya saya!!!

    but then, my lola has cancer..stage 4 at nag metastasize na....so malungkot din kami.the only consolation is that she doesnt feel any pain..minsan lang.

    pero we should find something happy, lovely and beautiful kahit na tadtad tayo ng problema.i

    IT'S THE SPIRIT that i anticipate...

    Before, oo, i look forward for Christmas. Andyan na yung mga Christmas bazaar, bibili nanaman ako ng kung anu-ano.

    i don't know what to feel as of this moment. Yes, I was able to pass my thesis but still something is missing kaya parang malungkot pa rin ako. Hindi rin finances or what, parang may kulang. Sana maayos nalang itong problem. Hihihihi! basta smile nalang ako.

    Well, this year, 1st christmas namin na wala yung lola ko kasi she died of old age 2 weeks after my birthday last september. Tapos pagdating ng new year, 4 lang kami sa house, ang lungkot. Usually dumadating yung ibang relatives namin pero most of them are in the US already. Well, I just wish that I'll be able to solve this "personal" problem of mine before Christmas time. Hiling ko nalang sa Diyos peace of mind and I'll be happy. :D

    yesiree..

    One or two month bago mag Pasko hataw kami ni esmi ng pamimili ng pang regalo. Si Esmi kasi 90% ng inaanak niya nakatira lang sa subdivision nila noong dalaga pa sya. So tradition naming maganak na one hour before noche buena eh naka costume ang daughter ko at iniikot at pinupuntahan namin mismo ang mga inaaanak/pamangkin (last year naka suot ng angel ang anak ko before noon Mrs santa ang kanyang costume, this year Princess naman). At binibigay ng anak ko ang regalo sa kanila, makilala na rin nya ang mga kinakapatid nya. Then

    This year though dalawa lang silang mag ina ang iikot dahil nandito ako sa trabaho. Pero oks lang bago ako bumalik dito eh nabili na namin lahat ng regalo ang dapat regaluhan.

    Saka nagpapalit ako sa bangko ng barya na tig sasampu at bente na malutong pra sa mga nanga ngaroling pero I see to it na ang anak ko ang magbigay. Malaking tulong din para mahubog at mamulat ang anak ko na maging giver sya.
