My Grownup Christmas List

Why grown up? Grown up in the sense that it will be the first time that I am not making a wish list just for my own sake. I know tapos na ang Christmas and only one wish came true, the toys for my ampons. Here are the others:

1. Shopping GCs for my mommy groovy because she loves shopping pero walang money kaya window shopping muna (dami na nga niyang nabiling windows, hehe).

2. Clothes for my daddy groovy because he's a teacher. He really needs to have different clothes.

3. Personal protective equipments for my brother as he works as a welder.

4. A plane ticket for my lolo dear so he can visit my long lost uncle in Cagayan.

5. Toys for my ampons.

At first, I only thought of these wishes for nomnomclub's contest, but after writing these wishes, nahiya ako sa sarili ko at gusto ko na talagang tuparin. Hindi man ngayon pero bago siguro matapos ang 2009 or sa first quarter ng 2010. I also joined one contest and I said that I will be donating toys and books for less fortunate kids to make my Christmas special. But I was only thinking of that not knowing na ginawa ko rin na magdonate sa Jollibee Maaga ang Pasko. I'm really happy that bloggers come up with these kinds of contests that can change their readers' lives.

Best Christmas Ever!

In our family, we don't usually celebrate Christmas Naghahanda rin ng konting salu-salo pero hindi kasing bongga kapag New Year's Eve. Kadalasan bumibili lang si Mama ng ham or roasted chicken at iyon na, okay na ang Noche Buena. Hindi rin kami nag-oopen ng gifts kapag Christmas. New Year's Eve namin ito ginagawa. Sa mismong araw ng Pasko, December 25, minsan lumalabas kami, pumupunta ng mall at kumakain sa labas. Para sa ibang bata katulad ko noon, ang lungkot ng Pasko lalo na kapag wala ang Papa ko...

Hanggang sa dumating ang isang araw na hindi ko inaasahan, hindi ko inaasahan na magkakaroon ako ng tinatawag na "Best Christmas".

Pagkatapos ng dalawang taon, hindi ko inaasahan na matutupad and wish ko... and wish ko sana bumalik na si Papa mula sa kanyang "pangingibang bahay." Take note, "pangingibang bahay."

Kaya ang Paskong 1999 ang the best Christmas para sa akin kasi buo na ulit ang family namin. Iyon din ang first time na nagcelebrate kami ng bonggang bonngang Christmas. Maraming food, gifts, fireworks, games at mga kamag-anak na sabay sabay sumalubong kay Bro at sa pagbabalik at pagtanngap ulit kay Papa.

Yesnomeh's Giveaway!!!

This is my entry to YesNoMeh's Giveaway!

What is my favorite beauty ritual?

For my face:
I wash my face with warm water, use moisturizers, wear light make up and use make up removal creams to remove it, and I do not rub my face.

For my body:
I soothe my skin not only with lotion but with sunblock.

For my feet:
I put petroleum jelly on my feet, put my socks on and leave it overnight while I'm asleep. This is to keep your feet feeling smooth and no need to go for a foot spa.

And the secret... I know these are obvious but really effective. And I know these regimens take a long, long time results, but the results are really nice...

a. Eat fruits and vegetables especially the ones rich in vitamin E.
b. Keep drinking water to keep rehydrated.
c. Good hours of sleep and rest.
d. Keep the stress levels down.
e. Take a bath everyday. It is our natural way of getting rid of dry skin cells.

Why is grooming important?

For me, grooming is really part of an intelligent lifestyle and it is part of having a good hygiene. And why is it important? Haha, what if you bumped into your crush and hindi ka neatly groomed? Haha, wa-poise and wa-points ka dear!!!
