Christmas Night With FTC Friends

Our gathering with Ramon and Alvin started last year at Kimono Ken The Block. I was the one who ask them to had a Christmas get to together. I enjoy being with them. They bring us so much enjoy that I can really treasure a lifetime. These two guys are my precious friends. Truly a friend in need.
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.

A Night At MV Doulos

MV Doulos docks at South Harbor

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.

Pre-Christmas Get Together With SCT, James and Dee

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.

Christmas 1st Wishlist Received!

Last November I list down all I want for Christmas, surprisingly I never thought that I can receive the first in my list that I had written down. When we went to Trinoma last November 30, Erwin surprised me with the watch I wanted. He was so generous that time and he even buy me an additional strap. He loves to buy for me the green lizard strap but I change it to blue, my favorite color.

Rak (Random Act of Kindness) Winner Annouced - I Won!!

I was busy doing a traditional layout in my scrap room when Achie Nita buzzed me. She said,may surprise ako sa iyo, I immediately reply to her, I was thinking that she surprised me with a visit, then the YM window pop in back, telling me that you won and witness daw siya when Marj draw my name. OMG! That’s my first reaction and I keep on shouting and thanking God for the wonderful blessing first winning the kaya 7 and now this rak from Marj. I didn't expect to win because I know that I have no luck from any raffle.

Here's the prizes why we are all so eager to join this RAK.

Marj decided to spread more joy and blessings to us by revising the mechanics instead of drawing 5 names, its now 16. More chances of winning! Yipee! Each winner will receive scrapbooking goodies worth at least $20 each. Lee helps Marj to divide the stash to 16 winners.

Here's Marj announcement to the group:
