2015 is about to end. Me and my high school friends made it a point to end the year with another party.

It took us more than 4 hours but it was all worth it!

Going back, 2015 allowed us the capability to celebrate each of our birthdays. Each a happy one.

This time, we celebrated God’s birthday. We had our own Christmas party in the midst of traffic gridlock on EDSA and as usual the cramped schedules of everyone. As we decided to do it in Bulacan, where Anna’s home is, it is also a gratitude act for the host since she always travel all the way to South from North in every celebration while the rest of us are based in Laguna.

It was full of happy memories, laughter and fun. Lots of stories too about those days when we were just teenagers.

We also had our traditional exchange gift. And all was happy getting theirs. They prepared something for my mom too, which I am sure, made her happy as well. The kids are also having a good time, so everybody is happy.

We also planned our birthdays for next year. It would be a simpler one, not as lavish as we did for each this year. Because we are saving for our trip to Batanes in 2017. It’d be our gift to ourselves as we reach a milestone of thirty loooong years. A friendship that weathered storms. We had it all. Ups and downs. Unusual fights. Peace-makers. Lonesomeness. Quirkiness.

Even Chel’s endless list!

All of our dreams. Those that came true and about to come true. And even those that didn’t come true.

Spell h-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s!!!

We thrived. We were grateful for 2015 as this year made the shackle of friendship sturdier. Our hearts beat thankfulness. Cheers to old age, stalwart as it can be, sageness in the years to come, and forever.

music
We all love music!
foodies
And of course food! Lol!

As I’ve mentioned in a previous blog. Each of us wishes one another just one thing. Happiness. And so we’re extending it to everyone!

Happy Christmas to all! ❤

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
