Christmas gifts Filipino style....

For those of you not in the giving here at Christmas is huge....I have never seen anything like it. The gifts are usually small, just a token really and invariably useful, nothing overly extravagant or flippant.

This morning I had a pile of gifts to unwrap, all of them lovely, but two in particular stand out as special..and both were CD's.

The first CD was one that a work colleague had made for me...entitled "Songs for someone who's been there, done that and got the t-shirt".

The second was an album of an artist that I had never heard of until last week...(I lead a very sheltered musical life!), when I was trying to find out what this rather special person wanted for Christmas I asked a mutual acquaintance (aka Island Boy!) and he suggested the new Josh Groban that's what I picked up on my next foray to the shops, having no idea what this album was like and never having heard of the artist I decided to go to the website where you can listen to the album...deciding I liked it I thought that I ought to pick up a copy for myself some time. Now, no need...the person I gave the Josh Groban cd to, gave me one for Christmas....serendipity!
