A Christmas Wish

May what the angels proclaimed that first Christmas ring true to this day: Glory to God. And peace on earth (can’t emphasize this enough!).

Wishing everyone the gift of peace this season! Peace in our hearts. Peace in our homes. Peace with our neighbors. Peace within. Peace in the world. 😃


Christmas Wishlist 2016

The Christmas vibe came early this year for me. 🙂 Unlike last year when political ads and jingles pervaded the air, I am hearing more Christmas songs this time. Jose Mari Chan’s Christmas album is playing *en loop* in the car, pero hindi sya nakakasawa. 😛 I personally like “The Sound of Life”and “Mary’s Boy Child.” Elmo likes listening to “A Wish on Christmas Night”, “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and the carrier single “Christmas in Our Hearts”! Sometimes, he’d let me sing those songs to him. Buti na lang Jose Mari Chan’s songs are so easy to sing along–no birit required. And they are soothing too, actually. 🙂

It’s also colder now. (Cue music: “Malamig ang simoy ng hangin… Kay saya ng bawat damdamin…” ^_^)

The Christmas spirit was only slightly dampened by Super Typhoon Lawin, but was immediately restored. And after that storm, I am just grateful more than ever that my loved ones and I are alive and unscathed (because one can be alive, but still broken 😦 ), and our house only sustained minimal damages (the northeastern door of our house got ripped off). This renewed sense of gratitude and the recent reminder of what matters most has made me look forward to Christmas all the more. 🙂

But that doesn’t mean I am not participating in any exchange gifts this year. So for the sake of my Secret (and Not-So-Secret) Santas, here’s an updated version of my wishlists from Christmases and birthdays past! Just so you know what to get me which I will definitely find useful. 🙂 NO MUGS PLEASE, except if they are Cath Kidston. 😛 No clocks and picture frames too! And lest I be considered choosy or an ingrate, allow me to explain: We still have a couple of extra clocks we don’t know where to place. Same goes for the picture frames. I’m still figuring out our wall layouts. Dapat final na when you decide to bore holes on your walls and hammer the pegs, hence the indecision. 😛

My Christmas Wishlist for 2016:

  1. FunKo Pop TV toy figures of Mulder and Scully. FunKo POP dolls are so cute! I’m contemplating whether or not to include Harry Potter as well, but I would have to throw in the whole gang into the mix. (Because I’m a completist like that. 😛 )
  2. Scully’s crucifix pendant
  3. These anatomically correct heart, ribcage & ECG pendants, from Bijoux de Lou.
  4. A small and cute Korean “perpetual” planner. Or–and this goes our to the usual suspects–the Starbucks Blue Siren 2017 planner. 😉
  5. A large and pretty desk calendar
  6. Lip and cheek tint from The Body Shop
  7. Virgin coconut oil
  8. Washi tapes
  9. Label-maker, Brother brand

I didn’t include books coz I’m still doing some “Konmari” on my little library. Will probably come up with a separate blog post on my “Book Wishlist” in the future. 😉
