My December 2014

The busiest month of the year went by so fast. It wasn't until the weekend before Christmas when I felt the holiday was near. 

December was super busy. And it was good to be preoccupied. 

My December went like this --

1. Fruit (I love how I can buy fruits like pomelo which are peeled and ready to eat. Saves me so much time.)
2. Grass (I couldn't find real grass. Anyway, the Christmas tree on artificial grass was a new attraction promoting the opening of Asia Books. Yay, there's now a bookstore so close to our place.)
3. Pop! (We received a very special package today and it came with these large bubble wrap. My boys were too happy to pop them.)
4. Free (Attended a children's party and my 5-year old was ecstatic over these freebies.)
5. Me (The person who gave me these tumblers knew me pretty well. The color and the design are something I would pick personally.)
6. Joy is… celebrating our 4th year in Thailand with a staycation. (On a rare weekend with no doctors' appointments, we took a little break.)
7. Weekends are for… hearty breakfasts. (I love a good eggs benedict.)
8. Simple pleasure (Our reflection on the Christmas ball make us smile.)
9. Decoration (My new Christmas ornaments from family and friends.)
10. Closed door (When God closes a door, He opens a window, right? Amen to that!)
11. Something red (MAC Viva Glam Rihanna and Wet N' Wild Stoplight Red)
12. Skyline (Might as well enjoy our view. Pretty soon we won't get to as high rises are being built every where we turn. Extremely sad about this development.)
13. Much loved (My super "kulit" but cute grocery shopping buddy earlier. His smile just lights up a room. Anything he does is adorable. Jed and I are smitten.)
14. Drink (Jed and I had a well deserved massage. Thank you church for looking after our boys. We were served tea after our treatment.)
15. Super! (Yes, I have a son who goes out wearing his Spider-Man mask.)
16. Beautiful (Sunrises and sunsets are my favorite. Since we don't see the sunset from our place, I will settle for the different hues the sky makes during this time.)
17. Sunshine (The sun was brightly shining and the temperature is a nice 25C.)
18. Sign (When I see mistakes or typos like this, I just want to offer my services to the printing company.)
19. Something to be happy about (I didn't send out Christmas cards this year. We never had time for our annual family portrait. So it gives me great joy to be remembered. Prior to these two, we only had one on display.) 
20. Food (I always pick this salad even if I do not remember the name as I just point to the photo in the menu when I order.)
21. This is interesting (Swatching lipsticks. Wish I had more time earlier and there weren't that many people in Sephora.)
22. ’Tis the season to… greet MERRY CHRISTMAS. (It has and will always be Christmas. So what if I am not politically correct. December 25 is Christmas day whether one celebrates it or not.)
23. Tree (I love how Siam Paragon decorates their mall. It's always elegant. This walkway in particular.)   
24. Color (I unknowingly picked out a dish for tonight's dinner using Christmas colored vegetables. It's an ordinary evening for us here in Bangkok with Jed working tomorrow.)
25. Celebration (The thrill of watching your kids open gifts on Christmas morning. To think they only have few gifts yet they are extremely happy.)
26. Animal (Those who have babies know the significance of Sophie the Giraffe)
27. I like…this minced pork and tofu dish. (My idea of comfort food in Bangkok is this 90 baht rice dish from a local restaurant.)
28. Book (Caleb's new book from Ninang Via. The little one loves his books.)
29. I need less of this… low EQ shopping trips!
30. Us (I rarely post selfies. But with this little boy I would. Meet my nephew Julian. One sweet boy who calls me "Ate" [big sister] instead of Auntie or Tita.)
31. My best bit(s) of 2014 (It had been a tough year. We learned to trust, fight and hope. Praying for a better 2015.)

And that's a wrap, everyone. I'm officially signing off from 2014.

Wishing all of you a better 2015.
