This year, Ramon invited our dear Kumpareng Norson and Kumareng I-chun to join us. Dine at Five Cows, Trinoma. The food was delicious. Steaks were so juicy. Never mind the diet and
weight, can't resist the yummy dessert they had. We still had so much fun specially with Tan-Tan(norson's son) was their to cheer us with his funny faces. Tan was the open who open our respective gifts to them. Ahem! They all got surprised with their personalize clocks. Can't explain their individual reaction.
I hate saying goodbye everytime we had a gathering. Too many stories to tell and one single night is not enough for us. I hope that we can still have our casual dinner even it's ordinary day. Thank you for the company and for giving us the stuffed cow.

The world’s largest floating bookshop MV Doulos docked last November 30, 2007 at the Gate 1, South Harbor, Manila Pier 13 for public viewing and sale of quality books from November 30–December 23, 2007.
It carries more than 500,000 books that are on sale at a very affordable prices. Over 6,000 titles cover a wide range of subjects such as science, education, cookery, technology, dictionaries, sports and children’s books, spiritual and some audio CDs.
The entrance fee is very affordable, only 10 pesos per head.
Last December 11 Nita called me and invited me to join them with Cabbie at MV Doulos. Nita was supposed to be the one who will bring the car but it's color coding, so offer my services to them. Glad to be at help. We took the opportunity to visit the ship since it will stayed up to Dec 23. I personally got curious with the type of books that the ship sells. I had no intention to buy, I just want to be look around but sadly we all had a BAGS of books. Good to know they accepts credit cards. Here's the book that I purchased plus the precious moments bible which I forgot to include it in the picture. The Bible was so cheap only 400 pesos and my total damage is just 1400 for all of these. I'm planning to give the illustrated Bible to someone but I ended keeping it. When Erwin saw it, he got impressed with the looks and of course the stories from the Bible. I love the art attack book. All of us grab one copy.
After the shopping and browsing of the books we are very hungry. Nita suggested where to eat. In Ermita at Al Ghazel.
Nita was the one who order the food. She ordered beef Kobedie with Beryani rice with matching a freshly squeeze Orange juice. It was so yummy. I didn't imagine I was able to ate the mountainous rice.
Last December 13, we, Sherwin, James and Deedee have our early Christmas get together. So early because our dear Sherwin will be having an early vacation leave. He will be going to his hometown to spend Christmas with his family.
All of us drive to Trinoma just to eat and chat. We arrived late as usual. The streets are too crowded. People were busy on their Christmas shopping. Sherwin can't wait us so he decided to sit down and wait for us at CYMA. Food taste delicious and the cost hmm.... quite expensive but still we had fun. We also have our gift giving. Thanks Dee and Sherwin for giving me the clear stamp that I want.

Winning this challenge was the biggest accomplishment since I started digital scrap booking. I personally want to thank the people who voted for me and believing my skills and creativeness to be able to produce my winning layout. I can proudly say that I have a "K" in this hobby. This is the feeling pa... "para kang nanalo ng award", friends keeps on CONGRATULATING me, honestly I ever won any contest nor challenge in my entire life this is the FIRST time, and I will surely treasure and remember that KAYA became a part of my precious hobby, scrapbooking.
To all my friends who keep on criticizing my layout, thank you so much, without your comments I would be able to improve on my skills. I owe you one. To achie Nita who keeps on nagging me to do more layouts often than hoarding scrapbook stuffs, thank you for knocking on me.
As for the traditional layout, the winner is none other than MARIX MARTE garnering 62 votes out of 181. Talk about that spark of inspiration. This one surely started a wild-fire! Truly well-deserved, indeed :D
CONGRATULATION, ladies. Now, the winners for this month's challenge are each receiving an identical package fresh from my scrap stash (pps, cs, chipboards & rub-ons). Au Lim has also generously added the complementing Queen & Co acrylic flowers and fibers to match the pps.
Besides these prizes, the two lucky winners are also getting a scrapbooking magazine of their choice from two wonderful ladies. THANK YOU Leirs Pagaspas for your special gift to Marix (Creative Keepsakes, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook, Etc., or Memory Makers). Also, to Julie Kelly for adding to Joyleen's prize any digital or special issue digital magazine. Both magazines may be redeemed anytime from Bookoto.
Thank you Nita and Au for the prize. You are so generous. Added Stash!! Mwah
