Christmas is Coming: Gift Ideas for Colleagues!

by Fred John Santos, SEPTEMBER 2021

It is traditional for us Filipinos to start Christmas Season during the ‘BER’ months, which is known as the longest in the world. So, when the first day of September marks on the calendar, we all know that it’s the start of Yuletide.

While some are already starting their holiday plans as early as September, many of us would think: What would be the best Christmas gift for my family, friends, loved ones, and colleagues?

Some of the delightful items to give away this coming Christmas are cookies and cupcakes! Check out IYEP’s Sweets, a small online bakeshop of Ms. Sarah Mae Rojas, Traffic Admin from MPT South, that offers festive sweet treats like cookies, choco crinkles, ube cheese pandesal, cakes, and cupcakes, perfect for sweet tooths!

Orders can be placed thru their Facebook page IYEP’s Sweets also personalized and customized cakes and cupcakes upon request.

IYEP’s Sweets, according to Sarah, was named after her deceased relative who dreamed to be a baker. When asked about her Christmas wish, Sarah said that she would be very happy pursuing her dream to open a small bakeshop and a cafe with her mother and cousin, who works as a barista in Qatar.

“Mga Ka-MPT South, please support our small business and help us reach our dream,” said Sarah Mae Rojas.
