My Christmas babies from the kitchen. The kids (nephews and niece) loved the Japanese Crispy Fry Chicken so much that it was gone before I could take a photo.
Baked Ziti ala Sbarro. Most important ingredients are the Romano and Mozarella cheese. Thank you to SM supermarket for making these and other types of cheeses available.

Christmas for me is all about thanksgiving. I attended a party and an old fellow said that surely this year, there is at least one thing that you are thankful for. Surely, there was one moment in the year even if it was just a minute that you laughed, smiled, and felt happy. Everyone has something to be thankful for.
This year was amazing and one of the most colorful years in my life. I learned a lot from many challenges, mistakes, good and bad persons, and travel! We have to be thankful for the good and bad things that happened this year, all of them make us wiser that prepares us for the next year ahead.
Surely, there was at least one problem in your life that you resolved this year. My biggest problem and hindrance from doing what I love was gone just before 2008 is about to end. When I started pursuing my dreams and believing in myself, taking the risks - I got to know myself more, my talents and what I am capable of. I realized why God placed certain persons beside me and with me, somehow they are connected to what I want to achieve and they can help me get it.
Christmas also means hope that the next year will be better. This means that we all should believe in ourselves and never stop dreaming. At the end of every depressing moment, remember that on Christmas day, God gave us Jesus to save us. And when you think there is no way out, the answer is always God.
On TV, I overheard someone said that God is inside all of us. So all we have to do is to listen to our hearts, follow our conscience and that little voice within. Next year, let's all believe in ourselves and follow our hearts. Let's not make our hearts suffer, if you are not ready to do something or are confused then wait. Maybe there is a reason for us to endure some pains here and there. Our hearts will point us to the right direction where our personal legend can be achieved (thanks Alchemist). This year, it was my first time to experience letting my heart and soul take control. Seriously, I was like speaking in tongues and suddenly I have the strength to decide and say what I have to say. I felt almost like a puppet and maybe it was divine intervention, I am not kidding. It was unplanned yet it happened, problem solved.
Now I know there is truth in Jose Mari Chan's "Christmas in our Hearts". Let us not stop believing.
Merry Christmas to ANYA, ate Joni, Vincent, and every good heart on the planet!
Stay beautiful, style and relax!

Here's us with Hopia who played Hannah and with Nash, who played Buboy. These kiddie stars can be seen in the hit TV show, Going Bulilit. We also met the Director, Robert Quilao.
Jacko and I walked along the cinema halls where he was able to try drawing a dinosaur using a wacom tablet. We also got several tokens and freebies from sponsors that greeted the viewers upon exit. Free tender juicy hotdogs, Fruitees, Ceelin pouch bag, Dayo calendars, Dayo poster, and Dayo stickers. The kids loved it!
The premiere night of Dayo was awesome and it was a great experience to kids of all ages. Good luck and congratulations to the people behind Dayo :) Surely, the Filipino can fly!
After the movie, we all felt like Elementary students and had a photo op with Winnie the Pooh :)

This post is for Mama's friends and my sister Joni.
Mama is very proud of her Christmas decors. She made everything all by herself and now our house is filled with streaks of Christmas colors.
This afternoon, she was in the mood to have a photo shoot around the house.

Thank you to Yehey.com for a ground shaking party at Grilla Bar and Grill. Yehey!'s partners, clients, and friends were all under one roof last night and partied till morning.
Yehey.com's Christmas party had a fun Filipino-pop theme. Everyone got to wear (and bring home) their fave Pinoy Pop taglines printed on their shirts.

At Chili's yesterday, TV5 threw a fantastic thank you party for being the number 3 TV station in the Philippines, they have been running for only 3 months.
Someone pulled my leg that Gretchen Baretto, my super idol is going to be at the party. She gives away a million pesos every week on her show, You and Me Against the World. I love the title.
TV5 news anchor for The Evening News (TEN) Cherry Mercado was present. She featured the party the same night on TV5 and all of us waited for it to be aired at Chili's.
We all had a fantastic celebration and kudos to TV5 for shaking Philippine television! If you want to be updated with TV5's programs, visit their website at http://www.tv5.com.ph/

In each shop, I physically and personally went through the stocks and shelves. In Toys R' Us, I finally found Guido.
Luigi and Boost are very hard to find, I even visited Department Stores as well. Yet after all the hunting, I met Anya's super buddy Lightning McQueen and told him I was looking for his other friends.
Lightning says "Hi! Anya" too. Anya's cartoon friends are all over the place, I also met Ben 10 at a toy shop but didn't get a shot with him.
Will fix all Anya's toys for shipping tomorrow. Or might try the toy shoppes in Greenhills as someone informed me that there is a shoppe that has lots of Disney Cars.
I love you Anya! :)

As promised, I remade the sandwich I learned from Giada de Laurentiis and took a shot. This time, I got a fresh Baguette from the French Baker.
I enjoyed it this afternoon with a cold bottle of San Pellegrino. Only 39 pesos at French Baker!
At the World Trade Center, Bantay Bata Bazaar - I met Raiver Cruz whose dance moves are amazing. I hate my face here, I look like a squirming fan girl and my face turned maple red!
And Mama met Anya's boyfriend at Mall of Asia, Ben Tennyson or Ben 10 minus his alien force.
Last night I made a simple Italian sandwich but the photo got deleted, will make it again sometime and take a snap. It's bread brushed with olive oil, topped with slices of cheese (mozarella is best), tomato, parmesan, pepper and salt. Heaven!
