Bandang alas-sais ng gabi nang magsimulang maghanda para sa noche buena ang pamilya... and by that i mean my mom and sister taking care of everything while I do the almost impossible task of waiting for Noche Buena. hehe. after what seemed like eternity, siyempre nilantakan ko rin ang putahe na nakuha ni mama sa internet, and it was nothing short of heaven. ang SARAAAAP. too bad it was time to get ready for church, hindi ko tuloy naubos... este nalasap mabuti ang pagkain. hehe
as expected, jampacked ang simbahan sa bisperas ng pasko. it feels nice, to be able to say thanks for all the blessings, trials that have made us who we are and to be able to see that there are a lot of things to be thankful for and to look forward to in the years to come. kahit siksikan, ayos pa rin... all for the spirit of Christmas.
pagkatapos ng mass, may 10-minute display pa ng fireworks sa plaza. to say that it was mesmerizing is an understatement. it was magical... made even more special by the people you are seeing it with. all those ooohs and ahhhs were such delight. pag-uwi ng bahay, kainan na ng masarap na handa. it's funny how when i was a kid, i always thought that what made each christmas feast happy was the food we eat... when all that really matters are the people we eat it with. o di ba? mature na talaga ang mokong. hehe.
this day was perfect... too bad i don't have pictures. although i'm not sorry at all. I'd rather have this wonderful memory in my heart than in my camera.
Merry Christmas you guys... from my family to yours , ' )
a heart that beats for me
