Grabe ang lamig kagabi 12 degrees hindi na nakakatuwa, LOL. I usually enjoy the cool weather but not last night, pati tubig sa gripo parang galing sa ref. Umuulan pa, definitely mas malamig pa sa baguio yung breeze kagabi actually until now, its 15 degrees today pero yung hangin parang 10.

sabi ko nga sis check ko sched ng para sa 24 and 25, kasi yang sched na yan pang ordinary sunday lang, ang tatamaan ng 24 and 25 is monday and tuesday so iba talaga sched non plus holiday pa yon. Atsaka depende din kung san church ka pupunta.


sis jellybeans for me mas okay sa Disney Hotel pero kung gusto mo makatipid ng konti sa Hollywood na lang, ok din naman don, mas elegant lang kasi ang structure ng Disney Hotel pero halos ganon din

Mas masaya talaga sa Disneyland pag Christmas Season. Kahit ilan beses na ako nakavisit, naya young at heart pa rin ang feeling ko. Pero mas gusto ko pa rin even my kids ang Disneyland sa Anaheim kasi medyo najo-jolt kami sa hindi english-speaking na Mickey Mouse.Pero overall ang saya pa din.
Katuwa din yung band na puro Pinoy. Parang ang sipag sipag nila. he!he!

Oh my! mid December dating ko and wala akong masyadong thick jackets, mga cardigans lang. Magwork kaya yun? And sis, alam mo ba kung may heater sa Yiu Fai and makapal naman ba blankets nila? Baka hindi ako makatulog sa ginaw :(

Sis layering lang kung wala ka talagang thick jacket. Doblehin mo lang yung mga shirt mo, pero as much as possible kung makakabili ka bumili ka kahit yung mumurahin lang. Then scarf din.. I have no idea kung may heater sa mga guest house, try mo mag inquire thru email.

Lheimatte hindi naman malakas ang ulan, ambon lang pero mahangin, malamig na hangin

^bring ka na lang ng pajama's sis. syempre socks sa gabi. heater ba yan for the room or heater for water? pag winter, maglalabas naman siguro sila ng thick blanket. try mo na mag-email sa kanila, if di makapal yung blanket dala ka extra kumot.  ;D and tama, layering mo na lang 2 shirtsa tapos jacket and scarf will do na.. yung jacket mo yung may bulsa para pwede mo dun isuot yung kamay mo.

Oh my, nae-excite naman ako sa cold weather, for sure pati kids ko mag enjoy, na-experience kase nila yun 8-10 degrees 2 years ago  =)

Additional question pa pala, extended shopping hour ba on the 24th?

ok na yan sis, kaso bitin & nakakapagod yang IT mo kasi puro byahe sunod2x tapos may kasama ka pang kids. IMO, bakit hindi na lang 2 nights sa hollywood hotel para mamaximize nyo yong stay. :)
