our fairy tale party

how's your december so far? hectic for sure, right? mine certainly is. i am writing this entry from manila, since i'm on vacation here for more than a month. it's strange, really. i haven't stayed this long in the philippines ever since i started working overseas. i have a lot of things on my to-do list, that i'm sure i'm going to be busy as a bee for the next few weeks.

before i left singapore, i was in a mad rush to complete our shopping list for gifts. thankfully, i was able to do that with just enough time to prepare for our yearly christmas party with friends. we follow a certain theme, and this year it was all about fairy tales. two days before the event, i went to the rental place in north bridge road to look for our costume. it's worth a mention here that costume rental shops are quite busy in december, because a lot of companies also do themed-parties. luckily, one of the attendants at the shop was a filipina, so it was easy for me to describe and look for what i wanted to wear.


we all came prepared. from the "pocahontas" family

we always have a couple of games..girls versus boys. the games can be very competitive, but this year, the girls won! isn't this the sexiest tissue paper-snow-girl? haha!

the boys consoled themselves by posing for the camera. better luck next year!

we exchanged gifts towards the end of the party, which is always a fun part. but even if we didn't have that, the time spent with friends is always a gift.
