The monsoon rains have been at its best flooding a greater part of Metro Manila and its suburbs. For this month alone, there has been numerous cancellation of classes due to heavy rains and well, for the little holidays that GMA invented and implemented.

I was at the parking lot of my favorite neighborhood supermarket - head bowed while holding my umbrella to steer clear of the puddles of water as I walk towards the supermarket's entrance. What? Am I hearing right? Is that "The Little Drummer Boy" coming from the supermarket's speakers?! Christmas in freaking-wet-and-flooded September?! I taught my kids that Christmas is a whole-year affair for we should never forget the importance of Christ's birth and the unconditional love that comes with the package. But to start selling Christmas decors and playing carols in September... I don't know.

I can't help but think of my Christmas list for this year. I never seem to run out of names to write in my list. This year, I have another name added. The mom of Ethan's classmate gave birth to a baby girl and I am the godmother! I said I was too old to be a godmother for I am a "grandmother" already. The mom and dad were adamant though. So this year I have baby girl named Kayla added to the list.

Now, what do you give a baby girl who seems to have everything? If my finances would permit it, I would like to get baby Kayla the best Christmas gifts Tiffany Jewelle that I could afford. I have always been partial to giving jewelries as gifts, not necessarily Christmas Tiffany jewelry gifts though. I believe in giving lasting and definitely "increasing in value" gifts. My Christmas wish, for several decades now, is to receive a Tiffany Jewellery for Christmas Dayer. Who knows? This year might be "the" year I do get my wish.
