Day Two Accomplishment
16233259I read The Book by Jessica Bell yesterday. So far so good! I’m liking this read-a-thon. I get to catch up with my to-read list and stalk other bloggers participating as well, ha ha!

For today’s participation post, I’m supposed to talk about how I’m doing. It was Scotty’s last day at work yesterday so now he’s here with me. Christmas vacation, yay! He won’t be back to work until the second week of January so we’ll have lots of time together. He’s been working six days a week with 70 hours per week for the last seven months now so he really hasn’t had time to do anything else. I’m planning trips to BC, medical appointments and regular checkups, and skidoo-ing in Valemount. Looking forward to an awesome December!

ddd-holiday-weightOh boy! Don’t even get me started on holiday food. I crave for different types of food on holidays – the food I grew up having every Christmas and the food I started liking since I came to Canada exactly two years and nine months ago.

fiesta-ham 3a8327bb5d6718875251d627e960f6291201220946488490My mom used to cook spaghetti or tuna carbonara and fiesta ham and buy black forest cake every Christmas. I also love keso de bola! It used to be my favorite time of the year. We’d all exchange gifts and do our part in the preparation of the Christmas dinner. You could really feel the holiday spirit in the air. No matter where you go, there will always be Christmas lights everywhere.

yule-log Holiday EggnogDon’t get me wrong, I still love the holidays. Probably not as much as I used to, but I still like it. Even though not everyone puts up lights or even celebrate it here, you could still kind of feel the spirit, especially in the malls. As for food, I make a Yule Log every Christmas since I came here. I’m not a big fan of turkey but I love stuffings. I don’t like gingerbread man or house but I’m going to try making some spiced eggnog this Christmas while sitting by the fireplace. That would be so nice!

    I’m glad you’re having fun. 😀 What does Scotty do? Why does he get vacation early? XD

    I guess most Filipinos pretty much have the same thing every Christmas 😛

      He’s in the pipeline. He works pretty much 6 days a week all year long at least 10-12 hours a day.

      He only stops working a month or so in the spring here when the snow melts cause the pipeline can’t do any work when the ground is too wet and muddy.

      He also gets a two-week break in the winter for the Christmas season. He just took a couple extra weeks. 🙂

      Don’t worry, I think it’s like that in most countries and cultures. They all prepare pretty much the same food here on Christmas.
