Fil-Am Christmas Party 2008

Hubby and I attended the Fil-Am Christmas party yesterday. It was fun but I was disappointed because the party supposed to start at 1:00 pm but it started I think at 3:00 or 3:30 pm already. Why? Because the president of the group and her sister didn't arrived yet. You know, Filipino time is always late as in very late. Everybody's waiting for them and we're hungry already. Sitting there waiting for them is just a waste of time. Grrrr! Anyways, after the prayer I headed to the long table where all the foods are (coz I'm starving already). What I did was get a plate for me and hubby, spoon, fork and insert in line to get something so I can start eating. Hubby followed where the line is but I can't wait anymore to go into the long line of people. I know that it's not right to just hop in where others are following the line but remember, I'm pregnant and I'm not supposed to starve. I'm just doing what is good for me and my baby in a wrong way. Honestly, I felt bad doing it coz I haven't done it before but I hope they understand that I need to feed the baby in my tummy and not just me.

The tables are full and I can see some of the teenagers eating in one corner standing. It was really crowded. I wasn't able to get enough food for me but at least I had something to put in my stomach before I collapse.

Here they are attacking... the foods! hehe

A game for women after eating. I had fun watching them. :)

Exchanging gift for women.

Singing Christmas songs and of course collecting moolah (a Philippine tradition).

Santa distributing gifts to kids (from the parents of course). :)

And here I am chit chatting with another Pinay about pregnancy. I am the only one pregnant in the group so every now and then my co-pinays asked me about how's my pregnancy, if I have a girl or a boy, when is my due date and etc. I'm not used to this kind of attention when I was in the Philippines but what can I do if fellow Pinays care for me? Besides, it's nice to get some attention from friends here. Now, I'm getting used to it. hehe
Merry Christmas!!!

lynn: lagi, di na jud maantoy ang kagutom. reklamo na akong gamatoy, sige na panikad. hehe

NovaS: mao na ang di nako kaganahan sa grupo kay filipino time gihapon ang gisunod nga kahibaw man unta sila nga naay naghuwat daghan. nitawag lang unta nga sugdan na lang ang kaon kay lunch time gud ang party dili snack. sayang lang jud among oras nga naghuwat nila. pero sige na lang, nahuman naman sad. :)
