I Loved the 80's!

Take the test --> BEST 80S MUSIC QUIZ

I absolutely LOVED this 80's quiz! All of you out there who sported the Flock of Seagulls 'dos, sang nonsensical The Cure songs and wore acid wash jeans -- you know who you are! Sadly, I only scored a 68! And i thought i was a true blue 80's music geek already...

Just for fun, take the quiz and let me know what you scored. :D

'Tis the season to be blogging

I'm back from my few weeks of hibernation -- lots of things have happened and lots of pics are begging to be posted! Christmas, as i expected, was a blur. Allan and I were shopping practically everyday trying to scratch out every person to give to on our list, and yet I just found out this morning that we still missed out on a few people (people who we won't be seeing in the next few weeks anyway). Gosh, there was just so much build up to the actual day itself than when Christmas family arrived, it ended also just like that. I really missed the days when we were kids when we didn't have to think about anything the whole Christmas season other than to write our wish lists to Santa, made sure they got "mailed" early to get to North Pole on time, and just wait for midnight of Christmas Eve to see if Santa would drop by. One thing I look forward to during the holiday season -- SLEEP. It's the only time in the whole 12 months of the year that I actually get to rest and not think about deadlines and clients following up on work.

Anyways, in the next few days I will be posting photos of events at work and at home, as well as kid updates, to prove that I have been busy and I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth which most of you might have concluded by now. Right now I will be posting photos of our recent My Left Hand office Xmas party which we celebrated with our team and their spouses / girlfriend. It was held at a popular Japanese resto here called Tempura where bowls of Sukiyaki, trays of Makis and Sushis, and baskets of Ebi Tempura overflowed. After a few games and a mini-raffle (where my friend Lita brought home a stand fan for her house -- lucky girl!), we moved to a bar called Cable Car and held a mini billiard tournament over glasses of margaritas and bottles of beers. It was a really fun evening because it was a match between couples, where the men got to show off their "Efren Bata Reyes" skills and women got to, uhm, do their best to not embarrass the men, hehe. I enjoyed this part of the night because billiards is one of my most favorite sports (or should I say, is the ONLY sport I am actually good at), and it gave me a chance to play after months of being pregnant. My staff Dan and his wife played a great game after competing against 3 pairs, and emerged as the billiard champs by 1am. Everyone had a fun time and gave them a chance to leave work worries behind and just chill with friends.

Thankful Thursday 44

What CHRIXEAN is thankful for this week

I am thankful for all my blogging friends who've been patient enough to visit my site every so often despite my erratic postings. I know my blog hasn't been as exciting and as story-filled as before, but time is the enemy here and I really need to get my schedules fixed first before I can get back to serious blogging. I may have to take a blogging leave for a week or two, just to allow myself to finish up on work and shopping errands, and to close the office for the Christmas break to allow myself some family time and quality hours with the kids. So to everyone, goodbye for now. See you guys hopefully in two weeks!


"Bye! Bye! See you in a few weeks! See you in.... CLICK! what the.....?"

Thank you! Thank you! I'll miss you guys! MERRY CHRISTMAS! Check back in two weeks!

May God continue to bless your union with a strong bond of love and respect, good health and lots and lots (ok, maybe three at most to start) of lovely children! :-D

P.S. It says the first year is called your "Paper Anniversary"... may you be showered with lots of paper gifts -- with dollars and peso signs all over them...hehehe....

With tons of love from my family to yours...

God bless!

  • Smiles - Can turn a bad day into a joyful one.
  • Work - We are busy (as you guys may probably have figured) with tons of work, and I am thankful for the opportunities that the Lord continues to send our way.
  • Family - It's my true source of joy here on earth. No matter how tired I am, I know I can be with people who I love and who will truly love me back unconditionally.
  • Rest - At the end of each day, I know the Lord gives me the rest that I need to be restored and renewed. It allows me to draw in new strength to face a brand new day.
