This year is my first time to spend Christmas away from home. Last year, I spent Christmas together with my family and went back immediately after to spend New Year here in Singapore. I would say that nothing beats the Christmas and New Year’s celebration in the PH. I regret not coming home this year because I found out that there isn’t much to do at work because of the code change freeze and I’ve slacked off for the past few weeks.
Anyway, OFW Christmas doesn’t have to be that lonely. I’m grateful and happy to complete the 9 days mass. Also, since a few of us at work did not go home for the holidays, we just spent it together and celebrate it on our own way. 🙂
Thank God for friends and gatherings…
…for the overwhelming foods (grabe talaga yung sisig, bagnet at adobo rice with taba ng talangka…(@_@)
…for the gifts, generous givers and friends who never fail to remember
