Oh myyy! It’s December already. Time flies so fast, noh? πŸ™‚

Yesterday, as I was reading random tweets out of boredom, I came across my high school batchmate’s tweet that goes like this: “Alam mong , pag nakabalandra na ang mga mukha nang mga pulitiko sa mga poste with their sincere Christmas greetings.” – @t

I seriously tried hard to keep my chuckle down because I was in a public place and I didn’t want to look like a weirdo. It was so funny ‘coz it’s true! Oh man, politics. *rolls eyes So as I continue walking around while catching a glimpse on the new tweets every once in a while, something came up to me. Samin sa DLSUD (at least in our group), alam mong  kapag nagkukumpleto na ng stickers for a Starbucks planner. LOL! It sounds really petty compared to the slightly political and ethical issue of the first tweet. Oh well.. πŸ™‚ 4 more stickers to go!

Going back to the main purpose of this post.. I have so much to be thankful for this past few months — my responsible siblings, supportive boyfriend, financial security all thanks to papa, our cousins who live near us and always check on us, my weird friends and of course my generous sponsors and loyal readers for trusting my newbie blog. I’ve been shopping nonstop for 3 months only to realize that I really don’t have the need to accumulate more expensive things to make me feel better about myself. I’m as happy as I can be given certain circumstances. πŸ™‚ I wish I realized that before spending all my savings. *facepalm
So without further ado, let me show you the prizes for my Holiday/Gratitude/Birthday contest. It feels weird giving away gifts instead of receiving them for my birthday. LOL!
