I remember when I was a kid, my parents made us believe that Santa Claus was the one giving gifts in our empty-hanged-cleaned-beautiful-socks in the plastic-made christmas tree.
The gift was nicely wrapped with ribbons and cards. I would say, they spent time wrapping it and there I was, opening the gift in 10 seconds with my tiny hands.
When I turned teen, there were no more Santa Claus, but rather they give cash as a gift. So, it will be easier to buy the things I like.
After college, entering the world of young professionals, I was the one, wrapping the gifts for my family. It's the other-way-around. Buying gifts, thinking what to give and wrapping it up. But seeing them, opening those gifts with the smile, enthusiasm & giggling were really something, something worth watching.
Now that I am middle-age, far from home, far from family and no relatives/family in Dubai. But still, I got a gift that it doesn't need a gift-wrap, ribbons or cards. It is all online and it is intangible. She gave me a beautiful gift and that is :
taticarpio.com and mariacarpio.com
The feeling of opening the gift when I was a kid is the same feeling when I got the confirmation that it was successfully registered. Again, thank you so much MA for the gift.
I guess, there's no turning back now for my Q1 project and this is it, it's for real.
-but still i would love to have that guitar though :)
