Last Sunday, we had a small get together cum surprise birthday party at Kevin’s and Tita Bambi’s place. November 27 and December 05 were Tita Bambi and Kevin’s birthdays respectively. Kevin approached us earlier this week and told us that he wants to surprise Tita Bambi, and he asked us (hubby and I) if we can help him prepare. Since I am off Sundays, I do have the time to help prepare for the small party.
So the whole day of Sunday, I was busy prepping for some of our food, hubby on the other hand, helped in decorating their apartment. When it was time for Kevin to pick up Tita Bambi from her work place, we all went down to their suite and waited for them till they got home, and when they did, Tita Bambi was all smiles when she saw everything. We told her that we did everything and that she was very happy.
We had dinner, our stomachs full, tired and yet content! There were still many leftovers, so we just brought home some of it. Unlike last year, Tita Bambi and Kevin spent around $150 for all of us at a buffet restaurant for their birthdays, but this year, it was fun, simple and we had a good time, plus we did not have to spend a lot, and that is great!
Holidays have this way of making people think about spending more time with their loved ones. All throughout the year, it is during Christmas time that you feel the need to be with the people you love for a long period of time.
This Christmas, you can give your loved one the most special gift of all—your time. This gift is a lot more valuable than any thing that you can buy from a shop. This will surely be a lot more appreciated by the recipient more than anything that can be wrapped in a holiday wrapper. You so not have to shell out too much money just to give time to your family and friends. Your company will be priceless for them. You can also give strangers a gift of time by doing volunteering work. Of course, you will be needing the gift of time too. A simple relaxation time during the holidays is what you need to get started for the upcoming year. Oh, and getting yourself a Movado cat is also one good way to pamper yourself! You can find it at reeds.com/watch-brands/Movado-cat112.html. Go ahead and splurge… even just this month!
Hubby and I have been invited by my childhood friend who now lives here in Canada to be godparents to her son. The invitation was sent last week and we still don’t know if we are going because it is far from where we live. Although we can take the train going to their place and then take the bus to reach the venue of the party, we are still not sure if we would be able to find the place. It would have been so great if we have a car so that we can just drive over there, but because we don’t have one, I think we will have to pass this invitation, but we won’t pass being godparents.
I haven’t seen my best friend during my younger days, and when I learned that she lives just an hour (by train) from our place, I was so happy and excited that finally after so many years, we will be able to see each other. But unfortunately, in our first year here, we really haven’t planned on when our reunion will be. So when she invited me to attend their party and be one of the godparents of her son, I did not hesitate. But now that it’s becoming colder outside and it is really a hassle to travel via the public transportation, especially tagging along the boys, we are not sure if we will be able to attend on the 15th.
I have a few days to decide and send my RSVP, hopefully, I will be enlightened and will be able to give her my reply.
