I just finished working my through this album in multiply. I just got the photos that my dad took a few hours ago.

I wrote about Christmas Day in Quezon (entitled: UNTITLED). I didn't have the photos with me before. I uploaded them now for everyone to see. Nakakaiyak.

Ib and I were supposed to hang out with Franco and JB at Four by Force, which is a cool place to drink and chill with friends, by the way (located at Granada St. (?), near the parols). I don't mean to rub this "een", Ib, if ever you're reading this. She lost her wallet with 5,000 in it. I just travelled to Marikina (with Tatang, of course). Fun night with the Badet. Just get ready for the emotional blog entry in the latter part, I am just thankful for our friendship. BADET FOREVER.

On Christmas Eve, the whole family feasted on food that could last us for a week and handed out gifts wrapped in pretty gift wrapping paper. There were no carolers outside, considering it was 12 midnight but we could hear the children lining up.
Christmas in Mauban will always and forever be FUN, plus some other MIXED EMOTIONS to complete the baggage. Since 1988, the Lim family has been giving a one-time dole outs to people who are not so blessed in life. An apple, an ABL shipping shirt, and money (they started with P10 in 1988 and escalated—a new word in my vocab, I intend to use this in everyday conversations, get ready IPE!—to P50 this year). Almost 2,600 people—children, grandparents, and parents, lined up outside our house this year for toys, old clothes and toys, an apple, P50, an ABL (credit: Albert B. Lim, my Kong-kong) shipping or a Skippy shirt for the little ones, which is truly bongga (the Skippy shirts, I mean)! Kidding aside, these kids will work their way through the crowd, fight danger even—climbing up the pointed rails of our home in sheer desperation just to get what, fifty-bucks. While I was busy, giving plastics to the kids whose smell I wouldn’t usually let pass (thanks to my colds, I got absolved from it, but that’s not my point), it got me thinking how much pride parents, especially fathers would have to put down while watching their hopeful children accept these things, when in truth, (or just what I know of) they should be the one providing these things. I mean, in the world that I know, or choose to know, these are just things that are handed to us, these things are complained about, “just 50 pesos? Anong bibilin ko, candy?” or “ayoko yan, hindi branded!”
Reality bites. Hard. And as much of a cliché the saying is, it is true. Go to Mauban on holidays. Hear the children cry in agony because others are stepping on their feet. See the grandparents faint because of the stampede that the children caused.
The gates do not open until 8:00 am.

The best Christmas Party ever! People were down with alcohol--thanks to Sober Club. Thank you, one and all. I love you! (Photo credit: Original photos form Shao and the doodles are by me using Apple's Paintbrush)

Yes, I wanna pack up and go (not Hanson's Get Up and Go). I've no inkling as to what holds this packing and leaving bonanza, but all I know is I want my own apartment and have a hot roommate. Okay, STOP.

Gorgeous dress by Shai Dela Merced. The next big thing, as Karryl puts it. This was shot in DLS-CSB, S.D.A. Building. Good thing we had a free cut in IPE!

I think it's the first time, at least this sem, that I slept at 11:00pm and woke up at EXACTLY 4:20 am by 3 alarm clocks, which I thought was impossible for me to do. I've never woken up by an alarm clock EVER. So, it's a first, literally. Okay, I have to read.
