and so this is Christmas?...........


I donno what's wrong with me.Christmas is my favorite season of the year. T's the time kung kelan pakiramdam ko sinusunog ang puwet ko, sa excitement~~~~~literally ---.

But this year is different,
I know it's all around me,
in the Christmas lights in the street,
in the radio waves, in the blogosphere,
in television, and even in the beggars
in the street who are taking advantage of
the season for sharing and giving......

.....but not in me, not in my heart.
I am not feeling chrtistmas yet and I am
not forcing myself to feel it.

I just go with the flow,
the usual stuff, going around,
malling, looking
for possible good buys for
gifts and that kinda stuffs AND DOIN some self pampering.


finally had the time to watch twilight last Sunday. Teresa and her sister Sheila were so yellow....

I don't care if the whole world already seen it. I'm glad all I knew was that it's a love-story vampire movie. I guess it helped coz I enjoyed the movie. Now i am a Twilight fanatic.....


Then this Saturday, we're in SM Mall of Asia to meet my brother's girlfriend, Ate LAIKA.

.....turns out to be a good timing coz after more than a hundred visits in this mall, it's my first to be here during a fireworks display which tales place every Friday and Saturday nights at around 7pm.

Managed to capture a few shots.....

... I don't know what but something in me definitely died and I couldn't feel Christmas the way I used to.

About the fireworks, I hoped it was loud enough to spark the excitement in me again, but it didn't. Well, I guess I have to keep searching, but where do I start? Should I look inward or continue going around with the hope that the Christmas spirit gets me before the season end......


  1. ang ganda nung pix ng fireworks!! paskong pasko na talaga no? Ilang araw na lang! weee!!!

  2. ganun???

    my case, i'm sooo feeling it hehe, it's my fave holiday of the year and somehow it never fails me to really feel the spirit...

    baka stressed out k lang 'ton

  3. tama si alex PG
    baka stressed out ka nga lang...
    or u need inspiration lang (ui..hehe)
    peru ok lang yan PG u still have 12 days to go...
    pasasaan bat mapi-feel mo rin ang xmas...
    sure ako jan...
    nga pala ganda naman ng pagkakuha mo sa pix...
    meri xmas PG...
    meow! meow!

  4. Is fireworks legal in your country? It is banned here but we still played with it anyway.

  5. astig! never tried taking fireworks shot. ok lang hindi naman yon ang basehan ng christmas.

  6. Those are impressive firework shots! I dunno how to take pics of firework so nicely.

  7. You know, I'm not excited with Christmas too. I think it's a bit boring. haha.

  8. cyndirellaz ---at kumusta naman ang mga ilaw dyan sa HK?

    alex--kaya nga--kailangan na naman ata ng spa---keke

  9. mavs--uo nga...I still believe in happy endings.

    Borneo Falcon ---wow. I donno that it is banned mean, in the whole country or just your area>??since when and why?

  10. the donG --ganun ba---maybe it's a sign of aging?

    eunice --hmmm. good thing there is a bar fence in front of me. If not, would have been impossible....

  11. I appreciated Christmas fully when I was 6 til 14 years old. somewhere there...

    Im shallow kasi, so I associated Christmas with gifts I received.

    Then I've gone matured and I have to buy gifts (to give)... Then I started to like Christmas less.

  12. The charm of Christmas is no longer with me. Maybe because it is too commercialized. I still get a thrill when I send monetary gifts to people in Pinas who are in need, Christmas or no Christmas.I just wish I can do it more often with more.

  13. OMG..Ur fireworks photos are really nice!! :D Are u using compact camera or SLR?

    And btw, probably when Christmas comes, you will feel the joy. Take it easy k? ;)

    Take care there, and merry xmas in advance!

  14. ang nice nung fireworks noh? I can see that from our house... hehehe

    di na kelanga dumayo ng kahit anong SM kasi kita from our balcony..

  15. same here... i dont wanna force myself to feel Christmas... where's is that spirit anyway???lolz

    natawa ako and napakunot ang noo when you said they were both yellow! nung nakita ko pics napangiti ako, kala ko kung anu na.. hahaha!

    great shots sa fireworls ha.. wuuuy! natututo na syang magphoto shoot... ahehe..

    be back soon(er), well hopefully.
    mamiss ko mga byahe nyo ni dong ho..ingatz!

    ayus nga yun eh, kaw leaader. besides who's gonna be on it? uhm, me, you and, and??? ahaha!
    teka di na ko maubusan.. sige sige...

    a blessed and fruitful Christmas!

  16. I loved the frieworks pictures...!!!

    But the feelings of the one who post those lively pictures doesn't seem to relate the liveliness of the could that be?

    Maybe, something is missing...and ur the only one who knows!--

    Lilipas din yan! Merry Christmas!

  17. I can feel your loneliness my friend, but then I wish you Merry Christmas!
    The fireworks are lovely!

  28. I love fireworks! Ang ganda ng shots! For sure mas spectacular yan in real life... Haaayy..

  29. Fireworks is something I miss in pinas maybe because Christmas here is observe differently. I mean I can always tell that when the month started to end with ...ber Christmas songs are heard in the air, colorful lanterns are hang, even imitation Christmas tree are lit up in the malls and houses and who can forget the fireworks? Fireworks here are save for 4th of July but at least we have a good dinner party other than that there's not much to say. MAkauwi nga next year...

  30. dont worry pusang gala, many times na rin na hindi ko naramdaman na christmas until dumating na nga yung araw na yun na marami rin namang sorpresa...

    malay mo, bumalik yung taong pinakamamahal mo! :) hahaha

    ako rin sana :(

    sa may mall of asia ako tambay dati and nagsawa na rin ako sa fireworks dyan, minsan nasa timezone kami, akala namin may stampede, yun pala nagtakbuhan ang mga tao kasi fireworks na... hehehe

    namiss ko tuloy, thanks sa pictures.

  31. JoShMaRie ---pati kaw---eexit na rin? sad naman....

    Chyng ---1st time ko nga sa MOA e.....

  32. AngelMist ---go home and have Xmas here---that's a good idea.

    Phivos Nicolaides--thanks for appreciating....

  33. Bry ---sana nga--aalala na talaga ako. hmmmm...MOA rin pala tambayan u dati---san na ngyn?

  34. I am not sure whether it is allowed or not (conveying such greeting), but let me deliver it clearly :


  35. CHRISTMAS IS FOR KIDS ................... remember?
    i feel the same way too, i guess were not kids anymore.

  36. ang galing naman ng camera mo nakuha niya yung fireworks...

  37. hehe :)

    ANg dami na palang mga Twilight people.... Hehe :)

    Tama ba na MOA 'yung backgroud nung mga pics?

  38. Akhyari --thank you very much Arry---despite what you said---you greeted us Merry Christmas---appreciate it....

    rodangeles ---oh---that makes me more sad---realizing that I am not young anymore...

  39. wanderingcommuter--yeah---nakaya nya--and I was equally delighted.....

    Lionheart : Richard --yup--it's MOA.
