My niece came home for a short vacation from Italy where she is currently working as a tour guide (hurrah for euro tips!!!). She is the daughter of my beloved kuya. <3 Good thing too, coz I got to shop in Duty Free, yay! (My privilege card expired already, boohoo!) m/
|Quick lunch stop at luk foo with my beloved Kuya, sis-in-law, and niece! ;)|
My christmas shopping was really late this year. Normally papasok pa lang ang November I’m almost done with my christmas shopping. However, with ate’s debut, then pageant so close to one another, I really didn’t have time to shop. As in 2nd week of november na ako naka-start!!!
It’s so hard to buy CHRISTmas gifts for everyone you know AND LIKE -especially when you’re in a rush. ;) First, there is the budget constraint -you most certainly don’t want to use up all your funds in the bank! :P Next is the TIME -you don’t want to camp out in the mall the whole week bumping chest to chest with all the other christmas shoppers. Hayz! So you really need to go generic. @_@
Of course there’s a handful that you really take the time to buy personalized gifts for, but for everyone else, chocolates & wine are a safe bet. Sure to be enjoyed for the holiday season! After all, it’s the thought that counts, not the cost! ;)
|There’s a new Victoria’s Secret shop in DF!!!|
|But of course my girlies won’t let the chance pass up!
KKS din sila! (Kanya-kanyang-shopping!) :P
|Yes.. I went GAGA panic-buying for CHRISTmas gifts! :P|
