Like a (Christmas Party) Virgin

It’s been long since I’ve had a ~real Christmas party– complete with the obligatory exchange gifts and the sardonic laughter session that comes after one unfortunate being unwraps his/her gift giddy, excited, hopeful… only to get a scented candle.

Photos taken during our exclusive, nevertheless star-studded, DotCom Christmas party last week at Music Match, Tomas Morato.

We were required to bring two gifts– one which was “useful” and one which was “witty.” And since I initially thought I was witty enough (lolol), I bought my monito Gardenia WHEAT bread. When he unwrapped it, everyone went bonkers.

“So wheatyyyyy! Hahahaha!”

The following day, my editor asked us to formally vote who amongst us had the wittiest gift. Of course, I won. In return, I got myself an actual latundan (banana).

PS Here’s our group photo taken by Shie Reyes: CLICK!

PPPPSSSS super random: After Fiji, can Oprah please visit the country next? Maybe she can attend to my poverty!
