Opening gifts !01:29 AM Tuesday May 16, 2017 |
My guests came bearing gifts for me the debutante x 3..
I actually felt a little embarrassed every time someone gave me a box or a paper bag. Nahihiya talaga ako. Hindi kasi ako sanay na nireregaluhan. I was always the one giving gifts.
It was really so nice of them to come and bring me things. Considering that majority of them were actually strangers, I felt the love. It’s not the contents, I just felt their real concern for me and my family.
And the gifts! All were well thought of.
Colorful abaca mats from Anne, for hot pans and casserole. Pwede rin pagnainis ako ke husband, i flying saucer ko papunta sa kanya.
Thoughtful gifts from Lei
Gift tags and note cards
Scented candle (Scentido)
Papemelroti from Sonya Simon
Be Still and Know That I am God. It’s a beautiful verse. I placed this stone-like paper weight (not heavy) on the small cabinet leading to the family dining.
Handbook of Prayers from Ting Enriquez
Ting gave me a copy of UAP’s Universitas where she’s featured on pages 18 & 19. That’s sweet.
Yen read this for me. I need glasses!
Det canceled out but sent a gift box the next morning.
Ay dami, Lush bath tub spritz bombs, Lush soap, l’occitane en provence hand cream, liquid bath soap. Pag naman hindi pa ako bumango nyan. Para akong nag-shopping.
Crate and Barrel gift box From Geraldine “Chie” Pagulayan
It’s a bird? And how adorable is that? Pwede naka upo.
Pwede rin nakatuwad.
Inisip nila talaga kung ano ang magugustuhan ko. How thoughtful of them.
This is so me. I immediately placed it on the table beside the stairs.
My husband suggested that as soon as I opened the gifts, I display them right away otherwise If I place them back inside the boxes, I would totally forget about them.
Fragrance Diffuser “dalandan scent” from Ting Enriquez. I am curious about the dalandan scent. I am sure it’s something I would love. Lagay ko sa banyo ko.
The Power of a Praying Mom from Schel Marquez
This is from Merce. Sineryoso yata nya. She went shopping.
She gave me two pairs of pants, one gray corduroy and the other one is a snake skin.
This would fit, tila mainit lang ang corduroy this summer.
When I saw the tight fitting snake skin pants, medyo nag worry ako baka magmukha akong palaka kasi malaki ang tyan ko. Hmm, it feels so comfortable. I will wear this in the US.
Snakes have many enemies. Here’s a few: big birds, coyotes, wild boars, mongooses, foxes, and even other snakes. OMB!
Hindi kaya ako habulin ng mga pusa? Di ba galit din sa snake ang mga kuting? Baka kalmutin ako.
I wanted to make sure I remember each and every gift. Yen helped me list them down. If I missed something or matched the wrong gift with the right name, please let me know. There are 3 gifts without gift cards.
I Liked each and every gift that they gave me. I don’t know how to express my appreciation for their thoughtfulness.
