There are so many reasons why I love the Christmas season. Aside from the obvious celebration of the birth of Jesus, which everyone tends to forget, by the way, people are always more jolly this time of year, there are always good food to be had and great company to enjoy.
Last Saturday marked the GC Christmas Dinner, my first christmas dinner for this season, hosted by Jazz and prepared by Chef Alden and his little helpers, Jazz, PH and I. Pre-prep time was spent at Santi’s buying huge chunks of beef, and Lartisan’s buying bread from…bread makers… bakers(very sabaw!). It was fun to spend 7 hours of dinner preparation time making fun of how ridiculous (but very credible) Alden looked in his apron and crocs (with his fancy knife set!), chopping stuff, grinding stuff, running away from linguini the dog and asking if anything was alive. Much effort was worth it, the food turned out incredibly delicious!
The company, of course, was great.
Shout out to Kat Lozano: Everyone came in their pretty dresses, except miss Lozano, who came in a neon green top and short shorts! Talk about rebellion haha. She felt bad and borrowed the dress I wore during the day instead, never mind if it smelled a little of onions and other kitchen whatnots. Kat also thought the dinner was for the CADs christmas party, and started asking people if they were attending! haha
I can’t believe that this is the last CADs christmas I’m going to experience! With so many of us are graduating this year, CADs, I’m sure, will seem very different. (Perhaps time to breed a new generation? I wonder who the next president will be!) Sigh, I hate that I’m going to have to leave so many people next year! One things for sure though, I will never forget the family I’ve built, the people I’ve grown to love, and the person I’ve become because of all these people! I love you, CADs!
Thank you to Jazz and PatB for the photos!
I hope to see you all at the SANTA CADS WORKSHOPS!
Proceeds will be given to the children of KAIGIN! Guys, it only takes Php350 to sponsor one child for an entire school year! Help CADs sponsor more of these needy children and share the gift of dance, education and love this Christmas!
