Precious Gift

I am fond of elegant and prestigious things such as figurines, pendants, miniature things and many more. I like giving those things (if I can just afford it LOL) to my loved ones to make them happy. Giving precious things to our loved ones is a way of showing how much we love them. Last year, I bought my sister and girlfriend bracelets made out of beads. Of course they were so happy with that gift (knowing girls, they love accessories. 

 Last month as I was browsing the web, I found out some things about egg Faberge. I was amazed when I found out that egg Faberge is not only a decoration of house ornament per se but a historic thing came from a Russian family. And became more amazed when I saw many kinds of egg Faberge and to my amazement, I wanted to by one. However, I got dizzy when I learned that the prize of it is around $18 million whew! Good thing there are egg Faberge that are really manufactured for sale and I will buy faberge from the vendor that I saw on the web.

Fabulous Giveaways

My sister’s 25th birthday will be on January 20. It’s far though, but we have to prepare starting this month because 25th year in this Earth is an important year to celebrate; it is a silver year. Yes, and it has been a tradition in this country to celebrate 25th year grandly. We celebrate our 25th (silver) birthday only once so we have to give our best to celebrate our birthday. The popular birthday foods here are spaghetti, cake, ice cream and pansit. Of course, the most special of all foods is lechon (roasted pork). Whew! I think we have to save money now so that we can afford to buy the necessary things on her birthday. Of course, when you host a birthday party, you have to distribute giveaways to the visitors. We think of giving egg faberge as giveaway item on her birthday. Also, my sister thinks of Hello Kitty and pink motif because she loves pink and Hello Kitty.

Christmas Trade Fair

We have the longest Christmas season in the Philippines; it starts from September up to the first week of January (Three Kings). Gift giving and exchange gifts have been a tradition in our country during Christmas day. During this season there are also may trade fairs where we can buy different kinds of items such as clothes, gadgets, kitchen and house utensils, house ornaments, electrical things and many more. We can see trade fairs in many parts of the country especially in Metro Manila. Night markets also sprout for the nocturnal people and last minute shoppers (in Christmas Eve). Last year, my sister went to night market to shop for Christmas gifts but she said that it’s more expensive. I prefer to shop during the day haha!    

Last year I went to the trade fair in the day and there, I saw faberge egg for sale. That time, I was not aware that Faberge eggs are prestigious things that are fun to keep. I hope this year will have Faberge eggs again haha!

Giving Necklace to my Mom

When it comes to presents, I prefer giving necklaces. I choose to give necklace because that thing can last for a lifetime. The fact that the person whom you give the necklace likes it, it means that he/she may remember you as long as he/wears that necklace. I don’t say that bracelets and rings are not precious and beautiful ones. I just like necklaces because we can change their pendants. There are different kinds of pendants available in the market and the most common one is the cross. Several known pendants are diamonds, opal, sapphire, clock, pearl and emerald. Among the pendants that I have seen in the market and mall, I like faberge pendants the most. You can see the elegance of the necklace if you use Faberge pendants. Not only the necklace but the woman who wears the necklace can feel being elegant. Well, I will surely buy my mom a necklace with faberge pendants on her birthday. I’m sure she will be happy with that.
