The Reyes Family Christmas Party

Aloha Everyone,

One of the main events of this holiday season is the Reyes Family Christmas Party.

This year’s venue was at Alex and Tintin, one of JJ’s nephew and his wife’s home located in Greenhills. Very spacious multi-level house with covered patio that extends to a grassy lawn area. The place offered sufficient space for the multigenerational gathering.

The catered event was well done with plenty of delicious food. Japanese theme highlighting sushi, sukiyaki, grilled chicken and shrimp tempura was well received. Entertainer was a professional singer who did solo numbers mixing popular songs and Christmas carols. She invited family members to join either as singers or dancers. Peping, the most senior of our clan delighted everyone with taking steps on the lawn using his cane to maintain his balance.

Tinting, always attentive to detail was an ultimate host. Even as she was talking to me, her eyes would scan the entire area to make sure drinks were being served and everyone was having fun.

Same as last year, the much awaited highlight of giving or receiving Christmas money went without a hitch. For me, it was also a good chance to observe family dynamics.

Aloha -- Cathi
