Taking One Final Look at 2012.

Before 2012 comes to an end, come join me as I take a one final look at a year full of love, friendship, challenges, opportunities, and everything else in between.


New Year's Eve 2012
January


My very first photo with T. We spent New Year's Eve watching fireworks from a cliff in Tagaytay Highlands before joining our friends back in Manila for the parties.

Day 2

The morning after our mustache theme party, T and I went around The Picasso to explore the different parts of the hotel.




The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences (part 2): The 'Stache Bash.


continued from part 1...


T's birthday was coming up though I knew he was never really for hosting big parties. But it was his big three-oh and I wanted to do something for him. His high school friends usually have an annual Christmas get together and I thought that would be a good cover-up for a surprise party.

Months before, I booked a loft at The Picasso Boutique and planned to order food from Conti's, so that left only the theme for me to take care of. I wanted a "Mustache Bash" for T since it was his 30th and what better symbol of manhood than a mustache. It was also timely since T was really growing a mustache. Serendipity!




Dear Santa, I Want An Apple iMac.

I knew I was good this year so I'm planning to get myself a nice gift. It was a toss up between a nice watch and the new iMac. Practicability won so I'm going for the computer.




Merry Christmas!

I love Christmas! I am such a Christmas person. I look forward to Christmas even more than my birthday.. Seriously.

I was just surprised that it's almost Christmas already. Been too busy with other worthwhile things (those who follow me on Twitter know what I'm talking about), that I didn't notice that my favorite holiday is here! I wasn't able to do Simbang Gabi or wrap presents -- things I love to do -- because my brain is still tired from all the frenzy. Good thing, T and I went to the mall yesterday and a little Christmas spirit rubbed on us both. We even met Santa! ;)

For T's early birthday celebration, I booked a loft at The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences.

Moshi Koshi Noodle Boss.

After the Nike We Run Manila 10K race, I told T I needed comfort food for my aching joints.
