Christmas '06

I admit, I am a Christmas person.

Memories will silently creep inside my head every time I hear carols. The soft, cold breeze that gently awaken my senses floods these Christmas pasts with powerful reckoning that for a few seconds, I was in a world where I was surrounded by my family and friends. A glimpse of what I consider an eternity.

Apart from the heightened commercialism of this season, no one can vouch against the idea that what makes Christmas a special day is the gathering of family, of bridging together differences and divisions on which for a single day every year, people seemed to be more compassionate, much kinder and not to mention, much, much more tolerable.

Nevertheless, we should remember also that many of us at this time will spend it on their own. Maybe a mother who is a nurse in the US, an engineer who’s a Dad in Saudi Arabia, a homesick breadwinner in Japan, or an elderly parent living alone inside a Home. There are people who will give everything just to experience just one simple moment with their love ones.

Be thankful for every Christmas that you will still see those whom you consider Family because these are the gifts that money cannot buy.


May the greetings we speak, the cards we send, the gifts we give, be motivated by our love for Jesus, after all, He is the real reason for the season.


Have a Merry and Blessed Christmas, Everyone!

tama masaya ang pasko kapag kapiling ang mga mahal sa buhay, buti nalang andyan ang text messaging or chat sa internet kasi para sa mga mahal sa buhay na nasa abroad ay para na rin kasama sa pamamagitang ng mga modern communication system :)

yeah, yeah.... Dec. 25, midnight. I was driving home from work. One of my two room-mates was in LA to spend Christmas with his family there and the other one just left for his night shift work. Was alone, cooked pork chop and ate alone. No calls were made or received.... It was just an ordinary night for me.
