Something Special

The busiest industry when the month of December comes, probably is the courier or shipping industry. The holiday season just indicates that the spirit of giving this Christmas is alive all over the world. I salute the courier company that never takes advantage of it and even double their effort and time in the busy December to deliver the package/gift on time.

If you owe someone and you need forgiveness, don’t just call. Send something special like I’m sorry gifts and surely the person who will receive them will really appreciate the effort that you exerted to make it up with him/her.

Action speaks louder than any other words you said. Send someone special a gift that he really deserves.

Food Trip Friday 72: Calorie Loaded Pasalubong

I was too busy last week and missed my entry. I caught myself up in the rush for this holiday season and back to back parties. I was a bit stressed but my Christmas tree is still empty. Plan for Christmas? None yet. I haven’t had any idea to this very hour when to spend it. WE might watch the movie or go somewhere on the day of Christmas. Anyways, here is my entry this week.

I always bring something for my kids whenever I go out as pasalubong. I would always text them or call what they want but of course I would only buy what is only available or whatever I see on my way home. Yesterday, from BPI event, I bought a pasta, a pizza and 2 Wendys Big Single for them. One slice of Sbarro Chicago Supreme is more than enough for two small eater persons. I put the left over inside the ref and just reheat it in the oven for our dinner today.

Chicago Supreme (P172) slice

Pasta Puttanesca (P174) whole
It looks so dry from the ref but it was juicier after reheating at the oven.

Venue for Parties

Getting a hotel reservation these days seem to be tough. Many people take this season to have a vacation somewhere while others book their parties at the hotel for various events. In our Christmas party held last week, the host made her way to get a hotel even if it’s fully booked when she called the hotel. It’s a 2-bedroom suite with living room, small kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The facilities are meticulously maintained even the clawfoot tubs that just add character to the suite. If I were to remodel my own bathroom, definitely, I would have it installed too.

I think that having a party at the hotel is far better even if it costs a little higher than doing it at home. I suggest the next time we have another event to do it in the hotel again. It saves time and big mess on the part of the host.
