It has been a tradition of the family to hold reunion every first day of the year. We usually hold our reunion at our grandma's ancestral home at Ramos. Because we have grown so many, the old ancestral home can no longer accommodate us. Since last year, we started holding our reunion at the only function place that opens on New Year day, JSU Mariners Court. It is a little pricey but we are very satisfied of the place especially because it is equipped with wifi.
On 2009, I received a Christmas gift from my best girl buddy, Gay, a box of delicious lace cookies. I love it so much that I began to examine the box. The box contains the number and some details. I've been ordering from Sweet Stuff by Jill Christie Uy ever since. I have not met Jill yet but she has been accommodating and replies to my inquiries all the time. She is also a co-Zugbuana sister of my close friend Rosel so I trust her.
Café Georg is a restaurant that I always get to pass by on my way home. From the outside, it looks too sophisticated and expensive that you shy away from dining in. Well, here are the facts. It is indeed sophisticated even on the inside BUT it is not overly expensive that it is no longer affordable. Café Georg is a small restaurant maybe around 10 tables only. It has a function room though that is maybe good for a maximum of 25 people. The numbers are only based on my own estimate.
Yesterday night I was invited by my friend Nikki for dinner at this cool new place with a wonderful show. I did not have any idea what type of show she meant. Regardless, I've always loved shows and theaters so I said yes to her invitation. They are having their Christmas Party at this place today and she wanted us to check it out and be the first to see the show. She told us it is a new place at Mandaue called Lakwatsa. Lakwatsa is a Cebuano action word that means traveling. Although I live in Mandaue, the establishment isn't familiar to me.
This is the only music video that has reached so much audience around the world with 700M++ views. The number of views is still growing too. So amazing! Only PSY can pull out this crazy number by doing so crazy funny dance moves. It doesn't matter if we don't understand the lyrics at all. This is entertainment and has brought so much fun into the world. ^_^

I have first known of Mitch Albom through his book, Tuesdays with Morrie. I loved it because of the lessons it imparted to me. This new book, The Five People you meet in Heaven, that I got a hold of comes highly recommended by a book lover such as mysef. It is written by the same author. I am not particularly a fan of death and its stories but I am a lover of wisdom. Indeed, this book has a lot of wisdom.
