Don’t have much time to narrate my December this year (as work is already waiting for me to narrate as well), but I’ll try to do that in a few pictures.

If I could fill this post with pictures of Josh, Justin, Erin and Erika – I would have, because this vacation has been mostly about them.  I loved the time I spent with my younger cousins, and my only wish is that they remember me as they grow up.  This was my first Christmas away from Ama and Gab, but it was a Christmas well spent with my family in the other side of the globe.

Other things worth remembering but will not expound as of now

  1. married life of my aunts
  2. jogging conversation with Kuya Alex
  3. life abroad
  4. that one should not sit on the snow for an extended amount of time without proper insulation
  5. I should really start writing real letters again
