Luckily, there were still some seats available at a table in the corner at the back. The mommies there, Mhaan (mommyrockininstyle) and Melisa (seafarerswifesdiaries), welcomed me with smiles and divulged that it was their first Christmas party with MBP too. This made me quite comfortable.A little later, I also got to chat with the other ladies at the table, namely: Juvy (mamaspeaks), Jhoann(triplejoys), Sheen (momisushin) & Gracie (fabmama).Mommy Lariza (mwah)broke the ice with her candor and curtain dance haha!

Back to the party, the delightful lunch was a buffet courtesy of Mesclun Restaurant at The Linden suites. Everyone also enjoyed the exciting direction game from Vitacubes. There were also a number of raffle draws with prizes such as gift certificates, vouchers and houseware. I actually won a hotel voucher from Hotel Quickly! I hope to use it soon!

Sometime after, we had some more time to get to know each other over coffee and some biscuits from Lotus Biscoff.
|I think the biscuits fit the setup quite nicely don’t you think?|
The afternoon went quickly but before everybody went home, we exchanged Christmas gifts and then got hold of the goodies from our sponsors. I want to personally thank all our supportive friends who put our ecobags and biceps to good use! May your bigheartedness be rewarded tenfold!
For me, it was certainly an affair to remember.I got the chance to meet some of the women I admire for their passion in shaping the mommy experience one blog post at a time. I got to share interesting conversations with other mommies. Mommy Lani (tweenselmom) mentioned that blogging can feel lonely sometimes and I agree.But now, I’ve met mommies who share the same enthusiasm and hopefully we can inspire one another to be better writers.
Here are some snippets from the party courtesy of Mommy Gracie. The collage below is a collection of interesting moments at the party taken by Casa Litrato – Photo & Video Services.
I’d like to wish my fellow mommy bloggers and you my dear readers, a very merry Christmas! May we be ever mindful of the blessings we receive and continue to share them!
