It Was Indeed the Fairest Night of All

I have never thought that a year after attending my very first Davao Bloggers Society Christmas Party, I will be one of those who will prepare and manage this year's Christmas party.

You see, I have been appointed as the sexy-tary, I mean Secretary of the Davao Bloggers Society. Have I known about the drawbacks that come with it, I would have not accepted the role. Because first, I am no longer eligible to win raffle draws nor will I have the chance to bag the Best Personal Blog Award for this year's Davao Blog Awards again. Bummer, isn't it? Second, being an officer can get exhausting. No kidding, kapoy sya.

But then, even if I waive several raffle prizes and grow eyebags from those late night preparations, I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm thankful for this. I am thankful for this new family. And nothing can ever get so rewarding when you pull off something you devoted your supposedly-free-time with that made everyone else happy. :)

So for this year's Christmas party, the officers (and by officers I mean, Kuya Andrew - it was originally his idea and we think it's brilliant) have decided to go for a Disney theme. And I thought it was easy because we all grew up with Disney. Turns out this only happens when you're a kid. To an adult, however, it's a different story.

Although honestly, while everyone was frantic about what to wear, I had my costume prepared 3 weeks before the party. I decided to come as Pocahontas because I don't think there is another Disney character that fits me well (Mulan, perhaps? But then...costume). I just want to make-do of what's already in my closet, which is a skin-toned body con venus cut dress perfect for a pocahontas. All I had to do was just sew the fringes, make a belt, and voila! Nailed it. I didn't even have to spend a hefty amount for it. ;)
Errr... I just realized I forgot to remove my wrist watch. Haha. Photos by Jim Carlo of
I think I was slayin at the party. But of course, everyone also brought their game on and they definitely look so amazing!

It was a night of food, fun, and games. It was such a magical night to start the Christmas season. And one of the best Christmas parties I have ever attended. Wait, let me rephrase that. It was the best Christmas party I have ever attended. It was indeed the FAIREST NIGHT OF ALL.

And it wouldn't be a success without the commitment of the officers, not to mention the volunteers, who have gone the extra mile for this to happen,

the cooperation of all the members who went out of their way to dress up as their favorite Disney characters,

and of course, the generosity and support of our valued sponsors.

Thank you so much for making this Christmas party extra special!

Christmas is really in the air. I wish you all a merry one! Have a Happy Christmas!
