Brrrrr Months

Here in the Philippines, September 1 is the day that the Christmas season is just around the corner. Early in the morning, local radio stations play our all-time favorite Christmas songs..isn't it wonderful?

BUT....

Before talking about the yuletide season, let me give a you a glimpse of what happened to me for the rest of the month of August. I know I haven't been blogging for weeks now because of my hectic schedule. But, anyway, here it goes...

I've mentioned in my last blog about the Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival.  This festival is all about beauty, street dances, floral floats, flowers, and the King of Fruits: DURIAN!

Durian: Smells like hell...tastes like heaven


The highlight of this month was when one of my close friend, Aina,  had her vacation. It was a 2-day event full of catching ups, food, and...getting tipsy? HAHA!!!

Now that "-ber" months are already here, a bittersweet feeling came over me. but, I'm also excited in planning our Christmas decorations for this year.

Have a fruitful September everyone!
