Shopping here in Hatyai City on holiday season isn’t that hard though there’s quite a crowd especially when you’re checking out your items. So far, the longest waiting time I spent waiting to pay for my items on Holiday seasons is only 15 minutes! Unlike in my city back in Philippines, on Christmas season you have to rush on shopping and start earlier to avoid waiting on line for 1-2 hours because they don’t have bar code scanner for their POS system. Imagine encoding the price or worst the numerical code of the product manually!
So I had my last Christmas shopping last night- the remaining ingredients for my menu for today’s Christmas celebration and last minute gift for kids. I just spent 30 minutes grabbing all I need at Tops Supermarket. The only thing that I don’t like here is the price of cheese! It’s so expensive like it cost about $5 per 250 g of cheese while in Philippines it’s only $1-2. Anyway, what’s important is I have something to buy it..he..he…Thank God for the budget for this special celebration.
On the other hand, let me present to you the last DIY Christmas Decor we made last night- Tubular Advent Wreath! All we need is future board for the base, cardboard, glue and adhesive tapes!
|I fill the wreath’s tube with small Christmas treats for my girl friends:)|
|My sis and I tried to adorn the cardboard tubes with glitters with out-of-this-world designs…in other words…”pataka lang ang trip”….LOL!|
|Just to make the wall not so bare with the wreath, we taped on “gifts” (empty boxes) wrapped with colorful cellophane wrap|
Happy Christmas to all!
