Ina and I both drop our iPhones often so we need these chunky cases.
Paulo got a baby faux-hawk during his visit here after asking me a zillion times whether or not it would look good on him. My take on hair is that if you think you can pull it off, you should just do it and not listen to anyone else's opinion. His brothers have been telling him to get a haircut similar to mine- and how very untimely, I was already growing mine out to achieve a pixie haircut type of thing similar to Emma Watson's.
I took him to Bench Fix at Serendra right before my brother got the same haircut. Wow. Too bad I forgot to take a photo of his hair.
Pau's flying to Michigan on January 6 for a year to finish his course (sadness) but I guess we're pretty used to the long distance thing. We started out that way and tons of people seem to survive like us, thanks to Skype, Facebook, Y!M, Facetime, etc. I'm still traumatized with that faker webcamming with me during my last trip to China so I don't use any of my new accounts with anyone else... It's either e-mail or Facebook.
Spent 3 days with the beau and got to visit Paul Jake's set for his TV series in Antipolo at around 3 in the morning to surprise him on his 26th birthday. Loved the view from the resthouse. It was super chilly, though... Developed a bit of a cold after that, but I can't complain since PJ had to swim in the freezing water with the flu for his scene that night (I think the series is called Alyna, it's on ABS-CBN).
I didn't get a chance to take too many photos during our annual Christmas party in Tagaytay on the 23rd. Bummer. Had so much fun with the kiddos, though. I am still suffering from the Christmas food coma. My fitness and diet plan should be amped up 200x by next month.
On the 24th my family usually attends the 9PM mass at the chapel right beside our house. We also have our Noche Buena extra early (we don't like eating late) and open gifts after the mass. My siblings kept laughing at me because I went to mass wearing house clothes, and celebrated Christmas in that same outfit. LOL... Since I got my major Christmas gifts early, we opened the more cutesy and nicely-wrapped gifts instead. Our traditions always remain so simple, and I love it.
Thanks to WhatsApp, Pau and I exchanged video greetings through our iPhones. They're freakin hilarious and I think he would kill me if I posted them here. Let's just say it involved funny dances and shameless greetings addressed to the "Cabrera family". :))
Had breakfast and lunch on the 25th with my cousins who visited us at the compound. Watched a couple of movies together and the youngest one (Alecsandra) accompanied me in my studio, using my design materials to doodle and color.
Christmas this year made me feel super blessed again to be surrounded by the people I truly love. Hope you guys were able to count your blessings, as well as remember the true reason for the season.
