Hello guys! How was your Christmas?
Same as last year, we celebrated our Christmas here in Phnom Penh. I wanted to pack my samsonite briefcase and go home but we've used up our travel quota already for 2011. So we are staying put in Phnom Penh for the holidays.
But just because we're not in the Philippines doesn't mean it has to be a sad Christmas, right?
Well, on Christmas Eve, we just stayed at home. We prepared Filipino fares like pancit, pork bbq, fruit salad, and chicken macaroni salad. EJ helped me bake a chocolate muffin for dessert.
After dinner, we had a fun time posing for the camera before EJ opened his presents.

Our family picture on Christmas Eve at our tree was grainy. I couldn't fix it.
So on Christmas Day, before we went to Sofitel for brunch, we took a picture again at our tree. Thank goodness, it's clear.
But this one is better. LOL! This was taken at the Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra's lobby.

Yummy candy treats for the kids and kids at heart
Lobster, crabs, salmon, etc..
After the sumptous brunch, we headed to my friend's Christmas party.
The whole gang!
We feasted on this Filipino kakanin! Yummy!!!
And before the party ended, we had our Christmas exchange gifts! Thank you Ate Elms for hosting the party. And thank you so much for the gift. I love it!
Have a Happy and Blessed New Year, everyone!
