Ai-Ai Delas Alas
Ang importante kasama ko ang mga anak ko. Kahit saan… okay kami. Hindi kailangan mag biyahe or magpunta kung saan-saan. Ang wish ko para sa lahat ay “peace”. At para sa akin, Porsche na kotse! Wish lang naman yun no?
I’m a simple person. I prefer gifts that last a long time. A book or a digital album…things like that, because you get to look at it over and over again. It doesn’t fade with time.
I’m spending Christmas here in Manila. Our family tradition is that we usually go out of town or out of the country. But this year , we’re saving up; so, we’re staying home. It’s a time to be with all family members, yun naman ang importante eh.
We haven’t made definite plans for Christmas yet. But surely, we’ll be spending it with family. Where?
Maybe at home and we all just stay there and have noche buena.

When I was young, Christmas would be a big celebration of the whole family in our house in Malabon. Now, I like to celebrate it by bonding with my sons. We go somewhere quiet and that includes all the way up to New Year. I don’t like to spend it in Manila because it’s too noisy and there’s too much pollution from the firecrackers. We like to watch the first sunrise of the year in different places. We have been to Cambodia, Laos, and India and we would get up early to watch the sunrise.
I will be on a float this Christmas – that’s the Manila International FilmFest float because the parade
starts on December 24. Of course, I will be with my family on Christmas Day because the entire Isidro clan will have its annual bingo. Napakasaya, lalo na kung ikaw ang winner!
I’ll be in New York with my kids. It’s a simple Christmas: we set up the Christmas tree, have noche buena, fix the dinner table to make it look really nice. It’s a white Christmas for us, and the best part is, we get to snuggle together because it’s cold! My entire family is spread out also in L.A., and here in the Philippines, and I wish that, even for just a day, we could all spend it together.
I remember when I was a child living in Cagayan de Oro. Kapag Christmas, may party sa buong barangay. Simple games, simple celebration lang, pero yan ang nag stay na Christmas memory sa akin dahil napakasaya.
