Clash in personalities

There is a saying that traveling together can really fortify and/or harm a relationship.  Well something to that effect.  Case in point, the Amazing Race.  Most of the racers are either married or dating couples and you can really see how they bicker and fight with each other whenever they are racing under time pressure to win the million dollars.

Well D & I don't really need to go on the Amazing Race to prove that point. I was brought up to always be ready way in advance for any trips.  I would sort out my clothes, accessories, toiletries to bring several weeks before any trip. Then I would list down all the last minute items I needed to pack on the day itself. 

D, on the other hand would simply shrug and tell me it was way too early to pack for trips. His nonchalant attitude and his carefree ways would totally stress me out. Whenever I'd remind him to at least arrange his clothes (mind you, I said just arrange not pack!) he would give me the standard line 'Maaga pa naman'.

So yes we are complete opposites in that aspect.  Well actually come to think about it, in many other aspects as well but I won't delve into that frame of mind, right now.

Yesterday, out of the blue he decides to go shopping for items he needs for our trip on Wednesday, December 19.  And although I was done shopping, I tagged along just for the heck of it.  I needed a breather from stressing over whether I was bringing too much, if I would have to pay excess baggage as well as the horrific traffic jam we would encounter on our way to the airport.  Just simply too much worries whether necessary or unnecessary I tend to cloud my mind with on a daily basis.

So while he was at the department store, I decided to snap some pictures of the Hello Kitty themed Christmas display at the activity center of the SM North Edsa. Specifically at the Block section of SM North.  Even though I am NOT a fan of Hello Kitty, I thought it was a cute and attractive way (especially for kids) to spread the Yuletide cheers.
