Christmas will never be the same if without the parties. And what are parties if not with the good food and the good wine? These two spell it – party time!. But Maybe not, because when you are far-away from home, no matter how abundant the food and the wine are, the feeling of homesickness will still exist. Christmas will never be the same without our family beside us, I should say. But then again, our lives here must go on and so as much as possible our little Filipino community here in Thailand sees to it that we gather together and have a little Christmas party time.
The date will be next week and although we hire caterers for our food, for sure there will be many of us who will bring genuine Filipino foods for that event. With the food present, of course, we will make sure to prepare good wine as well. A friend of mine mentioned that he will bring a bottle of Gewurztraminer Wine. What is Gewurztraminer Wine? He wouldn’t tell me so I guess I would have to wait for that very day to come so I’ll have a taste of that very mysterious sounding wine. I just can’t wait for it to come.
