It's been weeks since I last opened my laptop at home. Work life is fine, except that I always felt tired on the last few weeks. Blame it on the traffic on the way home. The extended mall hours and holiday rush automatically translate to prolonged travel hours. At this point, I would like to believe that everything is starting to subside. Not until I had last minute shopping with my mother. Despite the rainy weather, the nearby mall is flocked by shoppers. Setting aside the hassles, I love the sight of families spending time together. 

I have a lot to blog. But I'm feeling quite disorganized now. From food discoveries, Christmas parties and my quiet birthday celebration. :) Meanwhile, I'm leaving this post with these photos.

I'm in love with this book! I bought this from Book Depository, I'll do a review soon.

and an inspiring quote :)
