I am such a Star Wars geek. I love everything about this franchise’s mythos. And as an avid fan of this beloved epic movie series, I try not to miss any opportunity to “get my geek on”, so to speak.
Whether it’s trying to be first in line when the movie opens or scouring the mall finding new merchandise to add to my geeky collections, I’m in.
Last December 10, 2016 was no exception.
With bated breath, I awaited the unveiling of the new Rogue One Mural at the Sky Dome of SM North Edsa. Yes, I braved the horrendous traffic and hordes of people to witness this pretty amazing work of art.
For the life of me, when Christmas comes around, I somehow find it really difficult to recall the items that friends and family want. I guess I’m not attentive in that sense, I think? The same goes for birthdays (Thank, God for Facebook reminders!) and, to a certain extent, yes… even names. LOL!
So, here’s the thing… I usually rely heavily on my wife’s suggestions when picking items to give as gifts to special friends and loved ones. But even so, there are many times when we do our Christmas shopping that we find ourselves stumpped, not knowing what particular thing to get. And believe me, once you’ve hit that blank wall, it gets very frustrating. I end up walking aimlessly and wasting precious time in the process.
And, oh! Racking my brain, thinking of gifts that I think friends and family would like, is just one thing. Braving the traffic and the Christmas rush is a whole different level of crazy as well. The swarms of people, banging bodies, and endless walking… it’s like going into battle.
Thankfully, I finally found a sure fire way to solve my dilemma which actually makes me wonder why I didn’t think of it any sooner.
The other day, an LBC Express package delivery addressed to me arrived on our doorstep. I wasn’t expecting anything during that particular day so I was curious to find out what this was.
Upon opening this medium-sized box, I immediately saw a card with my name and my blog’s name on it.
Going through the card, I learned that the package actually came from the wonderful folks of LBC Express! Oh, cool! Looks like they’re playing Santa this holiday season and sending some Christmas love my way in the form of a #SorpresaPadala package filled with goodies and treats!
