It’s true that Christmas is not just about gifts but sure these make our friends and family smile.


Since the day I got back from Bahrain, it has been my practice to give gifts to my parents, daughters, close friends and househelp. It feels good to share even a not so expensive thing with them especially when they say thanks with a smile.


3 years ago, I used to dedicate a day in December shopping gifts for my Godchildren i.e. school supplies, bags, clothing like cute dresses for girls and funny tshirts for boys. But this time (same as last year’s), I am handing them over a red envelope. That saves my time from choosing and wrapping them one by one.

I just have to make sure that the money goes to the kid and not to the parents teehee!

Merry Christmas everyone!
