I took over the mall recently, and notice the growing number of people coming in and out of the mall, while trying to go with the flow and dodging the upcoming crowd. Its awful to see the long line of people paying at the counter, while having you in the last spot paying for just a single item you want to buy.

While taking over the long line and waiting for my cue, I noticed a young boy, dressed in rugged and dirty shirt and short shorts, dying for a toy in the corner. He suddenly grabbed the other toys which got his interest, while I was just staring at him unnoticed. The sudden feeling of mixed emotions struck me, I felt sorry for that boy. I was already at my cue, and the boy was nowhere to be found, maybe he did a little mall-hop, I guess.

Christmas is just around the corner, and while we are waiting for the day to come, we'll experience more splendid things we'd never imagine. Making our Christmas more exciting, we have to color it. Meaning, we have to consider other people, make them happy, while in return, it makes us happy too. Small deeds, which leads to big changes in the life of others. Making people smile with colors.

Another way to contribute in a more meaningful Christmas is to be part of the solution in PAY IT FORWARD GENSAN!, a project of Michelle Carillos, which started out as a small decision to do, and now aimed to provide and share the spirit of Christmas, through feeding at least 200 street children of Gensan.

See, how splendid it would be if we brought smiles into our fellow natives. Even just for a small pay of effort we could already be happy, and at the same time, making the spirit of Christmas as colorful as we could ever imagine.
