Happy Friday everyone! I love that time has been flying extra faster these days. How many days more until you guys celebrate Christmas? I don’t celebrate it, but I am excited for all of you who do! I have been talking to a friend about what gifts he has received so far just earlier today, and he was like…
None so far. It’s too early for gifts.
Are you kidding me? It’s never too early to give and receive gifts! 😀 I’ve gotten lots of small gifts already…even when I don’t celebrate. 😛
So what have I gotten so far? Mostly chocolates, journals, planner and purses. I felt a bit guilty that I was the only one receiving gifts so I decided to buy some and gave them to my friends.
If I were to be asked for my opinion about gift giving, I would always prefer giving and receiving food as a gift. I have been trying to be a minimalist, and one part of being one is to reduce the amount of things I possess. Hence, I would always go for the one that is consumable — Food.
Tomorrow, one of my girl friends, Meggie, and I are planning to visit Maginhawa Street and go on a food hunt. This is apparently our gift to each other. We rarely see each other nowadays since we live in the opposite sides of the city, and we want to make sure that we always make our time spent together as precious and exciting as possible.
Maginhawa Street is a place in my city where you can find a variety of restaurants and food stalls that offer really delicious and interesting food.
There are so many restaurants in there, but I made my own list of places I want to try.
…and the most important and most interesting place I want to visit is
Some of my friends have already been to this place, and if you’re a cat person, you definitely have to try it! I’m already thinking of bringing Jayde here as well when she comes to visit. She will absolutely love it. This cafe obviously has lots of cats lurking around it. I think you only have to pay 200 PhP (100 Pesos for entrance and 100 Pesos for food).
This is how it looks like according to the site I visited just now:
I am also a cat lady so I am so excited to go see it! I am not sure what Meggie wants to try yet, but those four are my top choices so far. I’m going to take a lot of pictures and share it with you on Monday since I may be very busy this weekend. 🙂
What are your thoughts on gift giving? And what are your plans this weekend? I hope you have so much fun!
