Sweater: Beyond Style Manila / Skirt: Cheap Monday / Bag: Givenchy / Boots: Zara / Earrings: F21 / Eyewear: from Shanghai

Just one day left 'till Christmas Day and as per usual, I feel as if the Christmas bug decided to elude me once again. As soon as I started working (which feels like a century ago), Christmas has never been the same. I guess it's partially due to being in constant motion at work that you lose time to sit down, mull over and relish the happy Christmas thoughts you once had when you were younger -- i.e. attending Simbang Gabi, getting dressed up in a cute dress with a windbreaker to keep yourself warm from the cold draft, hearing your kid neighbors go from door to door as they serenade you with Christmas carols, and the list goes on. Oh the things that I would do to get those old Christmas 'feels' back...

 But instead of griping, I think I have to remind myself to be more grateful...because I've been blessed with a wonderful life, coupled with a loving set of family and friends and a stable job -- and this, in itself, is an amazing Christmas present.

Let's pray for all of those who'll be spending their Christmas alone, away from their families. Let's pray for those who aren't fortunate enough to receive gifts this Christmas, let alone have food on the table to eat. Moreover, let's pray for all of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. They too, deserve a great Christmas this year.

    1. Agree. Well, the giddy, cant-sleep type of excitement over Christmas is. But I believe that for adults, Christmas celebrations, when done right, becomes more heartfelt vs. exciting. Happy Holidays, Cza!
