Franci and Me

Hello everyone! Meet my friend Francisca or Franci (pronounced as Fran-si). She is two years older than me but we are very close. She is half-Filipino, half-German.

We love to play and dance and sing together. We only see each other once a week, every Friday during the Novena for Sto. Nino because we live far away from each other. When I am not around, she would ask, "Wo ist Samantha?" (Where is Samantha?) She used to call me Semanta when I was still new here but now she knows how to say my name correctly. How about that?

Here are our photos during the Rosary Fest last Saturday. She would always look after me and we would chase each other at the hall's corridor. When I was without a dancing partner, she would take my hand and dance with me. We really had a lot of fun!

I did enjoy my day at the fest even though it was raining. There will always be fun things to do when you are with a friend. Right?

Christmas and Me

December is fast approaching and one can feel the cool breeze of the winter air slowly making its way. And with December comes the Christmas season, that special time of the year when everything is cheery, merry and bright. In my part of the world, it is also going to be a white Christmas, with the snow and all. And so it is time again to save up as early as now so that it will be a happy holiday.

It is still October and yet our heating system is already working, that's how cold it is here. And it is going to be another additional expense. That's why we see to it that we use it only when we can't bear the cold anymore. We would wear our jackets inside the house to save on heating costs. We know this isn't the COLD that people are talking about. Brrrr.... will we be able to endure the winter season? I hope so.

My mom is already making up her shopping list and trying to budget everything so that we will have a happy Christmas. She worries that we won't have enough money for Christmas and so she is being frugal about a lot of things lately and is also considering getting a payday loan should we go over budget.

I always hear her saying how important it is that we have available funds during the winter holidays so that we will enjoy it. I think she meant about the shopping and the Christmas and New Year's feast that is a Filipino tradition. It would be no fun to go to the Christmas market and just look, right? And Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve would not be complete without a banquet. Also, we are planning to spend it at my Dad's brother in London and that would mean we also need to save for our travel expenses. She says I have to be a good girl too so that Santa Claus will give me presents this year. But I am a good girl. I wish this year will be as happy as last year. It need not be a grand celebration though. Being with my family and spending the holidays with them is more than enough.

Little Animals

I love my little animals toys. We got them at Ikea store last month. They are of different colors and each has a name too! Here they are:

Ellie is the blue elephant. Beside him is Po, the Black Panda. Between Ellie and Beefsteak, the friendly Rottweiler is Rory, the yellow lion. Then there is Helga, the pink hippopotamus and the Dottie, the alligator. Aren't they all cute? Beefsteak is not a stuffed animal though. He is a ceramic figurine, a gift from my Mommy to my Daddy when they were still going out. Would you believe that he is already 10 years old? That old! Hihihi!

And do you know who arranged them all?

It was me of course! My small hands are proof! LOL!

How Old Am I?

I love talking to my Mommy. We could just sit together for hours on end and talk about anything under the sun. Of course, she still can't understand what I am mumbling but she looks interested and seems to understand. One time she asked me how old I am. And guess what my answer was?

Please check out the video for my answer and please excuse the mess and the fact that I don't have my pajamas on! Hihi! :D

Friends are Inspirations

Many of you may be wondering how I am, especially if you are following my Mommy's blog, since she posted there that I am sick. As an update, I am feeling better, thanks to my medication and the care of my parents, and also your well wishes and prayers. Only a little bit more rest and I will be back to my usual routine (and so is Mommy). My Mommy is the one who is more sick right now. She seems to have caught my colds. I guess it is quite a common illness these days because it is getting colder.

On a lighter note, I want to thank Tita Liz of Mommy's Little Corner for these wonderful awards:
The Most Inspirational Blog Award and The Friendship Award.

Thank you very much for these wonderful awards. :)

Now it's my turn to give these awards away. I'm passing them on to inspiring mommies:

Mommy Kikamz, Mommy Enchie, Mommy Elizabeth, Mommy Niko, Mommy Seiko, Mommy Pehpot, Mommy Ria, Mommy Bambie.
