Family Christmas Celebration


Hello everyone! How’s your Christmas? Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
Here in UAE Christmas is not considered as holiday though some of the company are giving lieu day. We’re lucky because daddy A and Raquiza were off as well. A little time out from work stress means family day!



At dahil nga,Christmas season is a family affair we decided to watched the Live Dolphin & Seal Show at the Dubai Dolphinarium located inside the Creek Park, Gate 1.
Dolphinarium is in the festive mood so on every show there’s raffle draw and they were giving great prizes. At dahil nga gusto ni Lord siguro na mas mapasaya ang pasko ni Raquiza the lucky girl won a gift voucher worth aed 250 from Spa Genie. Sulit na ang entrance fee namin.









The show lasted for one hour and right after the show the little boy requested for popcorn.


From Dolphinarium we went to Dubai mall for dinner. We decided to eat near the fountain because you naman how the little boy enjoying the show. Kaya sa P.F Chang kami kumain. Yummy ang Dynamite Scallop.

Senti mode-Siguro if we were in our country then I’m very sure we will definitely have MMFF movie marathon..haha. Maybe right after watching Enteng Kabisote my siblings and I will watch One More Try. Then will go to Enchanted Kingdom or di kaya naman Manila Ocean Park with the kids. Nevertheless, next year naman hopefully we’ll try to go home para mas masaya kasama ang pamilya.

Day 25 – Opening of Christmas presents

This Christmas our family has so much to be thankful for. For one thing, my sister is here with us.No wonder that  being with her makes the christmas countdown extra memorable.

One of my family’s favorite Christmas traditions is the opening of christmas presents under our tree.

After the Christmas-everything is over and we are all ready to just sit around and enjoy the bits of wrapping paper and ribbons that are twirling around our toes.

The little boy could not wait for this time. He keeps on asking if it’s time na to open all the gifts under our tree.

It’s proven that our little boy is trully blessed with all the people around us. He’s so loved! His laughters and excitement is contagious.

Thank you so much Tita Aemi and Ann for his Zoo Lego. Tita Ann thank you for the new book. You just don’t know na sobrang happy si mommy to add The Giving Tree in our collection.

Tita Raquiza’s gifts were so precious as well as the little boy requested to have new Hot Wheels. In addition she also gifted him Fitflops. Yehey!!



Thank you Daddy for the Ice Cream Set. Now we can eat more flavor. The little boy kasi likes to play pretend Ice Cream Shop and he’s always asking what flavor we want to order.



I already mentioned how I like Veggie Tales kaya nman I ordered Veggie Tales Bible from Amazon. Happy!!

It was such a cheerful countdown for our little boy regardless of stresses of life.

From our family to yours Merry Christmas!!
