Christmas with Jasmin's!

Pictures last Christmas when I visited Boyfie's family :)
For my new readers, you are probably not aware that Daniel (boyfie) is a Seaman.
He is on-board right now and didn't celebrate the Holiday here in Pinas but then
I still came over to their house and gave his family a visit. 
We immediately posted this on Facebook so that Daniel can see us.
Meet Kit, girlfriend ng brother ni boyfriend :)
Daniel's cousin who is working in Dubai spent Christmas here in Pinas
and gave us VS lotion as a pasalubong/gift.
Thanks Kuya Mong :)
Danica, boyfie's youngest sister

I had a Merry Christmas with Jasmin's Family, missing Daniel though.

I still have to tally entries from my giveaway, will announce the winner as soon as I'm done.

Happy a nice Wednesday Loves! :)
Hugs & Kisses

Christmas Party 2011 (3/3)

The last, but definitely not the least Christmas Party I've attended for this year was held at Davao last December 17.
At Naia Terminal 3- December 17
Arrived- Davao International Airport

Like our Christmas Party in La Union (blog about it here), this is just an overnight affair.
Hindi man lang ako nakapasyal sa Davao.

From airport, we headed straight to our Hotel
Checked in at Marco Polo Hotel Davao
This is where we stayed and the venue of our Christmas Party
