Tapos na ang Pagdiriwang ng pinakamahabang pasko sa mundo! Di lingid sa kaalaman ng iba na ang Pilipinas ang may pinakamahabang kapaskuhan sa buong mundo. Nagsisimula ito sa unang araw ng Simbang Gabi at nagtatapos sa pagdiriwang ng tatlong hari o ng Epiphany. Ang iba pa nga ay binibilang ang selebrasyon ng pagbibinyag ng batang Kristo - na kilala natin sa Pista ng Santo Nino.
We arrived last weekend and it seemed that the first week was spent mostly catching sleep and trying to figure out where I was on most times. There were 4 days out of the 7 that I was up til 4 am, and the rest of the time I was trying to fight oversleeping. It's more than jet lag - it is planning time for most companies, ours just came in a tad late.
It was a Red-letter day in Hollywood!
I'm so happy for some of the awards for the most recent Golden Globe Awards for 2009 happening tonight. Most of my bets won! Woohoo. I think I can be a Foreign Press voter myself:
