Gifts! Gifts! I love Gifts ...

Finally, I get the chance to download all my cam pics in my PalmOne. Since my camphones memory card broke down last March at di ko na plano bumili dahil by December eh may new phone nanaman ako from Globe (hopefully ... pero new contract naman hahaha) I've been transfering my cam pics sa palm handheld ko. Ei bakit nga pala unfair ang Globe minsan ... super duper loyal ako sa kanila pero never pa ako nagkaroon ng free cellphone gift, aside from the cellphone they give for free for a new contract. Oh well, that's life. My camera didn't function well on our wedding day itself ... reason ... my batteries discharged ... reason again ... hindi lagi china-charge .. nadiskarga ayun ... ayaw na magcharge. Buti nalang some of our friends and relatives got their cameras. Send dito, send doon nalang ang ginawa nila. Anyway, I'm blogging about our wedding gifts. We never expected this MUCH since for us, more important that you come, yun na ang best gift ever sa amin. Pero wag ka ... ganito lang naman ang scene sa bahay namin. Buong hallway, dining area at living area nandun lahat ng regalo. Kaya sinabi agad ni dad na buksan na namin yung gifts namin para mailigpit na ng maayos yung mga gamit.

This is how our guest showered us with gifts. Mga 3 hours kami nagbukas ng gifts ni Jason niyan. Super overwhelming ang mga gifts. Lahat magagamit ... yun nga lang ... what will we do to 7 Rice cookers, 8 whistling kettles, 3 blenders and 4 oven toasters? Hahaha nakakatuwa di ba? Sabi ko nga kay Jason we'll use the 7 rice cooker everyday, this is for monday, tuesday, wednesday blah blah blah ... Ang dami din namin pillows. Buti naka vaccum sealed, easy storaged siya :) One of our Ninangs provided I think 3 or 4 gifts. And every gift has a quotation ... example: If you have problems, don't forget to iron things out together ... the word "iron" is underlined ... when we opened it, its a Black and Decker Steamed Iron ... hihihi nakakatuwa siya. Super naaliw kami.

At eto yung isang gift na di natiis ni Dad buksan kasi pagdating namin, na-ripped out na yung part ng gift wrapper (shown sa photo) ... its a Sony Wega TV. Tinawagan pa nga kami ni Dad sa hotel niyan nung dumating sa bahay yan early in the morning. We also got super lots of pretty picture frames ... Kaso si Paul di pa nabibigay yung enhanced photos namin. As much as we wanted to use it eh di pa pwede kasi wala pa kami ipiprint na photos on it. Some gave starter sets (kilala nila taste ko ha) and some cooking ware which my mom drools over when she saw it and asking na sa kanya nalang hahaha! Napagalitan ni Dad tuloy hahaha! Sabi ko sa kanya share kami, pero pag may bahay na kami, dun ka na magluluto sa kitchen namin hahaha!

Hmmm ... ano pa ba? Ah oo dami namin comforter, bed linens and pillow cases ... sabihin na natin, yung isang set eh pwede mo gamitin for 3 weeks ... cguro mga 2 years supply meron kami. Bale yung unang nagamit namin na bed linens magagamit na namin after 2 years. Oh di ba, tipid sa gamit. Nakatago yung 3 comforters na gifts namin. Magagamit lang naman namin yun pag winter, este pag Pasko na pag malamig. (winter ka diyan, asa ka!)

There were those who gave symbols like parang bagwa ang itsura pero puro coins siya. For prosperity daw. And another friend gave us a dragon thing yung nakikita mo sa mga chinese stores na pangpa-swerte ... naku si Dad nilagay agad sa may pintuan para daw pumasok ang swerte palagi hahaha! A friend of ours gave us a frame of Jesus while Jamie my SIL gave us a crucifix na nakalilok. Ang ganda niya pero tinabi muna namin kasi baka matabig namin siya. We kept it in a safe place muna.

Not to mention, the overwhelming cash gifts, cash cards, and Gift Certificate. My cousin even gave us a complimentary overnight stay sa Richmonde Hotel which until now di pa namin nagagamit hahaha! Saka na pag ok na ang scheds. Sa ngayon kasi busy pa si Jason eh ... ako buy-busyhan lang hehehe.

To all who came to our wedding, thanks so much! And thank you for all this gifts. Gusto namin ipaalam sa inyo na hindi ang mga ito ang mas magandang regalo na na-receive namin. Just by being there to witness our union ... the time you gave for us kahit busy kasyo sa mga work ... super duper thank you sa inyo. You made our day memorable big time!

Hi sis Che, hows your wedding preps na ba? oo nakakatuwa talaga si Ninang Elsie. Yung Water dispenser na bigay niya she used the quote "Put God at the center of your lives to purify your soul" something like that ... and sa comforter she used "be a comforter to one another" something ... nakakatuwa as in.
