feelin' the holidays!

 
 

i cannot wait for christmas! even when i have to work on the eve of th 25th...bummer... at least it would still be spent with a lot of people. we work by mountain standard time so technically, it's still a business day in canada by the 24th (which is the night of the 24th here)...it's my 2nd year working on christmas and i can't say i'm really loving it. here in the philippines, we have what we call "noche buena"... we attend church at 9 or 10pm...finish preparing our food -- which in our family is one kind of pasta, bread, ham (my aunt's most delicious and awaited ham!), another kind of meat that we try to experiment from a recipe we just found, and cake! right after eating, we always open gifts together. there's just 5 of us -- my mom, dad and my 2 sisters! of course, christmas is not complete without dressing up. we always do!

in this post is another version of the chained watch that i feature yesterday. this one is silver with a small aztec-like design on the front. i regret to have only bought 2 from hong kong. i so wanted the other designs. good thing i have my sisters -- we always share accessories. the only thing we can't share is shoes. we have different sizes -- my little sister wears a size 5 and my big sister wears a 9...haha!
