In the Philippines, the name Jose Mari Chan is synonymous to Christmas as he takes over radios, shows, and our hearts during the holiday season. But have you ever wondered how the Filipinos Christmas icon spends his own Christmas Eve?
Here’s how Shopee’s Christmas Ambassador Jose Mari Chan would host a pleasant Noche Buena with family and friends.
Picture this: You’re surrounded by your loved ones, sharing stories with one another. Classic Christmas songs are playing from a Vintage Record Player, blending nicely with the laughter of your friends and family. Because Tito Joe goes the extra mile to keep everyone comfortable, Knitted Blankets are placed on the sofas, so you can snuggle and get cozy while waiting for dinner to be served.
Now it’s time for dinner as Tito Joe invites everyone to join him in the dining area. The holiday spirit fills the room, with cute Snowman Home Decor adorning the shelves. The dining table looks festive, with reindeer-inspired Christmas Chair Covers making you feel even more cheerful.
Delicious food is served on the dining table, with hearty Christmas staples like roast chicken, lechon, pancit and more. You start off by helping yourself to some cold cuts, delectable choices of cheese, and fresh fruits that are beautifully placed on an elegant Engraved Charcuterie Board. For drinks, a citrusy blend made with a Juicer compliments your hearty meal, and helps cleanse your palate for dessert.
After the lovely dinner, you gather once again at the living room but this time, Tito Joe surprises everyone with an impromptu performance. Ready as always, he starts to belt out his iconic “Christmas in our Hearts” song. While Tito Joe is singing, a Portable Microphone is passed around the room, giving others a chance to sing along with him. As everyone joins in, your heart feels a sense of warmth and joy, as the room gets filled with song and laughter.
Finally, you’re back at the spot you were earlier, snuggled by the warm knitted blanket. To finish the night and while waiting for 12AM to strike, a hot batch of coffee made from a French Press is served to everyone. To complete the Christmas experience, the coffee is in a cute Christmas-themed Coffee Mug, capping the night of holiday glee and fun.
