We woke up late on December 25. We were supposed to be leave for Taytay by 8:00 a.m. for the 9:00 a.m. Christmas worship service but we did not. We left at 9:20 a.m. arrived at 10:10 a.m. and missed 3/4 of the worship service. It has been traditional to sing the Hallelujah Chorus by Handel every Christmas. And like routine, the present conductor asked those in the congregation to join the Chancel Choir in the Hallelujah Chorus. Of course I did not want to join because my voice was still sleeping and naturally, still in the lower register. However, one of my friends saw me and literally dragged me in front to sing with the choir. Soprano. I was not able to hit the high G's and A's though.

Socializing after the worship was fun. My kids kissed relatives and their godparents who were there. My kids, at their ages, were still given money by their godparents. They refused to get the gift money but I signaled that it would be more impolite to refuse the money. So, they thanked their godparents and noted to give them gifts this New Year. Believe it or not, I still received money from my ninang too. Hello Benjamin!

  2. cherry: i'm really very close with my 3 ninangs as they are my cousins too. pati mga anak ko at apo tig 1K din. swerte ano?

    shiela: ako rin maraming kumpare and kumare. but over the years, they migrate or we lost touch na kaya the only credible ninangs and ninongs are those that are close relatives too.
