Lokal Kasikas: Gift-giving tips karong Pasko

“Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I take gift giving seriously.” - Nicole Niña I. Hao Bian

ANG Pasko matag tuig ang paboritong panahon alang sa 31-anyos nga si Nicole Niña I. Hao Bian. Ug suma niya, ginaseryoso gyud niya ang pagpanghatag niya og regalo.

“When I make my Christmas List, I already include a budget and a shortlist of possible gifts to give according to their personality, hobbies, and their likes.”

Si Nicole gihulagway nga systematic ug praktikal ug makita kini sa iyang trabaho.

Siya ang naggiya sa unom ka international academies ilawom sa JIB International Schools, nagsilbing board sa pipila ka asosasyon ug regular nga pagbiyahe sa Hong Kong alang sa iyang doctorate degree sa Hotel and Tourism Management.

Luyo niini, nagatambong sab siya og social events.

Apan taliwala sa ka-busy, keri ra niyang gibalanse ang iyang iskedyul.

“I oversee and manage all the schools under JIB working closely with our academic leaders to ensure the schools accomplish its vision to be the premier institution for Hospitality, Tourism, Culinary and Entrepreneurship programs. I also take care of our industry linkages and education partnerships both nationally and internationally for all JIB schools,” suma niya.

Ni Nicole, saktong time management lang ang gikinahanglan.

“I plan my schedule and make sure that I get to attend to all relevant meetings and commitments but not sacrifice my day to day tasks. Everything is written on my planner (I’m traditional like that!) and noted on my calendar app (a note to remind me of a note!).”

Karong Pasko, ginasiguro sab niyang organisado ang iyang pagpanghatag og regalo.

Oktubre pa lang, nangandam na siya.

Ang iyang listahan, sobra sa 400!

Ania ang iyang gift-giving tips.

1. Pili og regalo nga mohatag og kalipay

2. Be creative sa imong regalo

3. Be personalized

4. Ayaw kalimot sa visual presentation sa paghatag nimo sa imong regalo

5. Panghatag og regalo nga pwedeng mapaambit sa uban

“For me, food and wine is the wisest gift to give. It brings everyone together which is the essence of the holiday season. It can easily be added to the Christmas dinner menu and liven up the festivity. I know because I take charge of our dinner menus for Christmas and New Year!” dugang niya.

Ni Nicole, “I always rely on Marks & Spencer for my Christmas food and wine gifts. It’s a one-stop shop for adults and kids. M&S has a good selection of wines, foodstuff and chocolates everyone in the family will love. More than any materials gifts, it’s the memories that we have shared with our loved ones over food and wine during the holiday season that will last a lifetime.”
