I always finished on time. Every year I make it a point that I deliver my gifts on or before the 15th of Dec., so I can relax before Christmas. But almost always I become Santa’s elf a week before Christmas.

I end up finishing Claudia’s list and wrapping up the gifts of Vinny and Claudia’s for their ina anaks. My room has become the wrapping station. Oh, well. I guess that’s part of the Holidays and being a Mom.

In between wrapping gifts, I went for a quick lunch with my friend Carla Carnduff at Peoples Palace in Greenbelt 3 (my go to resto hahaha).

Carla & me

Like always we had fun catching up.

After lunch, I ran to Almeda Optical to pick up Claudia’s contact lens. And went down to Rustan’s grocery to buy some roasted almonds. This is what I snack on these days.

When I went out of the grocery, omg, the rain poured. Like cats and dogs. I wonder where ‘raining cats and dogs’ originated from.

By the way, Carla gave me a power case for my phone. It’s a case and at the same time, it charges your phone. I screamed when she handed it to me. This is just what I needed. I feel so techy already, hahaha. Thanks, Carla!

In case your wondering who Carla is she’s my friend and one of our loyal Willow Jewelry customers. So glad to see her again.
