It was an informal party held at Eton Centris. After a small group of us had gathered at Jollibee, we transferred to Jack's Loft/Pho Hoa/My Thai for (a late) lunch, and then we had an introduce-yourself portion (for the benefit of the our new attendees) where people, well, introduced themselves, talked about the genres they prefer or usually read, and their best and worst reads for 2011 (mine would be Middlesex for best read, and A Passage To India for worst). Then came the kris kringle proper and exchanging of gifts, and then, outside, we had the games: charades and eating game c/o Maria. :) Oh, and I just have to mention that we were shooed away by the guard at Jack's Loft/Pho Hoa/My Thai because, allegedly, we were bothering their customers. Heh. :D
After the shirt quote game and Angus' announcement of the first ever TFG 100 Favorite Books, everyone filed over to CBTL for coffee. Unfortunately, it was around this time that my husband came over to pick me up, so I had to (reluctantly) leave. :(
|Thank you for the pic, Joyzi. :)|
THANK YOU for the gifts! Tina, Angus, Tricia, Kuya Doni and my mommy, Alona. *hugs* Until the next meet-up...!
