Joined Masonic Christmas Party '09

December 20, Sunday evening was a well attended and well prepared 3 lodges joined Christmas party at El Manuel, Cotabato City. We had fun eating chatting and getting together. The three lodges gave one dance presentation each. The Kutangbato Lodge had an all funny-boys dance series, the Shariff Kabunsuan Lodge gave a graceful retro & modern dance number which I participated and the party hosting Bantugan Lodge had paired couples swaying and swinging to a popular medley dance and carol number. Parlor games followed but Lucas and I went home earlier during the parlor games because lucas has been having a spell of bad cough these few days. Merry Christmas to you all!

Advent '09

Lucas and I arrived Cotabato from Manila on December 10. I had to quickly prepare my home for the Christmas season. I like to decorate my home by myself and it takes a while for me to do it.  First and foremost I need to have a general cleaning of the house before any decor is put up. I take time to do the decorating slowly.
Next day on December 11, I happily received a batch of order of 200 pieces of cupcakes which has to be delivered on the 16th.
On December 12, I received a confirmation of a previous order of 200 pieces cupcakes to be picked up on the 23rd. I kind of panic. I need a supply of more ingredients and big boxes for my cakes.
Then I got a call  to participate in a dance presentation for the mason's party on the 20th, this coming Sunday. So, I went to my first dance meeting last Monday night and I need to go for more practices every night.
I had my second practice last night, then attended a party after the rehearsal.
This morning, I delivered my first batch of order. I intend to bake more cakes to give as presents.
I still have to put up my Christmas village and the lights on the window........
I haven't wrapped my presents yet and gifts from friends are already coming.........
Quick, quick! Why am I still blogging here.....................
