sikretong malupit!
eto na po ung “secret” blog na sinasabi ko on my previous posts. can’t post it before because it’s a surprise party for hubby’s 30th birthday…
the thought of having a mcdo party started last january. i asked opinions from friends, some were ok on the idea and found it ‘kakaiba’ (kasi for adults eh) and fun. though some, mostly chatters and readers of this blog, opposed! hehe. =)
owel, tinuloy ko pa din for these reasons:
- i want to have something different for hubby’s 30th birthday
- i don’t want to serve dinner anymore at their residence during the usual inuman
- mcdo is cheaper, compared to the other suggested venues like shakey’s, max’s.
needed to consider the cost because the “inuman” after required a bigger
budget than that of dinner. hehe, mga sunog-baga kasi. =)
- i want my hubby (and us also) to feel the “kid” in us
- the ‘Incredibles’ theme of mcdo is perfect for my hubby’s 30th bday and my
baby boy’s 10th month bday (alias Mr. Incredible and Jacjac =)
- his friends are all OK with the idea
and so, i started planning and shopping for this event.

as blogged previously, last friday (2/3), i went to divisoria to buy additional pooh items. actually, the main reason was to buy incredibles items, hehe. i bought lootbags, drawstring bags, incredibles toy figures, small toys for loots, towels and goodies.
i just dropped all the things at home, pumped milk for a minute, then headed again to mcdo for the reservation. it was already 6pm so i had to hurry up because hubby will be home by 730, and the divi items were still scattered in our room.
buti na lang, hubby texted me kung pwede daw sya mag-6:thirsty sandali with his officemates. sa buong pagsasama namin na nagpaalam syang uminom, ngayon lang ako hindi nagdalawang-isip na payagan sya, hehe. i needed that time kasi to sort out the party items eh. =)
i gave mcdo a list of all the things i want. also explained the instructions and details on the party day. since it’s an adult surprise party, marami akong kaartehang dinagdag at binago. pati nga ung usual games sa mcdo, binago ko and added a lil’ twist. =)
after that, i went to goldilocks-sta. lucia to order and give the picture for the portrait cake.
finally, i was home by 8pm. pero sabi ko kay hubby, kanina pa ako nakauwe. buti na lang hindi na tumawag sa bahay. inayos ko na din ung 7 lootbags (since i only have 6 kids), kaaliw kasi ang dami ko palang nabiling toys and goodies. for sure, matutuwa ang mga bisita naming kids.

the following week was a busy one for me. busy na dito sa office, cramming pa sa party. and since it’s a surprise, i’m basically ALONE in preparing, kaya ako lahat. ewan ko ba pero mcdo na nga lang ung party ko pero busy pa din ako. it just shows na party organizer talaga ako, napaka-OC ko sa parties, hay!
i’ve been calling and texting his friends to remind them of the surprise party. i also asked my bestfriend Jing to coordinate the party on the day, since i’ll be with hubby that time. i gave her guidelines and a detailed list of all the things to do and check.
thursday came, and it was my last day to prepare. went to sm to buy chocolates for the adult winners. been looking for an incredibles shirt for baby boy but can’t find any. since red ang color ni incredibles, pero di bagay kay baby boy ang red dahil umiitim sya, hehe, i looked for a white shirt with red design. buti na lang i saw one at guess, ang cute nya. kaya lang, walang pang-adult na same design. so hanap naman ako para kay hubby. buti na lang ulet, i saw a white shirt sa nike with similar designs as that of baby’s. not exactly the same, pero parehong white na me sulat-sulat na red. so i bought the 2 shirts and was pretty sure that they’ll look good on those. =)
pagdating dito sa office, i sorted out the 10 adult prizes, wrapped the shirt (as baby boy’s gift to papa) and wrapped my gift. emailed the sketch to some of his friends and made last-minute checking.
friday, the actual birthday of hubby. after he took a bath and went back to our room, baby boy handed over his gift to hubby. so he opened and found the 2 shirts for him and baby boy. masaya na sya nun, anything basta nike, happy na asawa ko, hehe. then he headed for work.
ako naman, naka-leave ulet, haha. parang ako ung me bday noh. i went to NSO to get sana the birth certificate of baby boy, kaya lang it was so traffic at wala pang parking. naka-dalawang ikot na ako pero wala pa din kaya umalis na ako. pakuha ko na lang ulet sa messenger ni hubby. punta na ako sa Substance Salon for my scheduled X-tenso. i arrived there at 10am. since galing akong rebond, for sure daw na matagal mag-lock ang gamot sa hair ko, not to mention na kakapalan pa ang buhok ko. i also had my foot spa, manicure at pedicure while watching tv and sitting at one of their lazyboys, hay life! =) i love that salon and i probably won’t go back to Hairbytes anymore. i just had a mcdo delivery for my lunch and merienda. and guess what time ako natapos? 630PM!!! as in! 8.5 hours ako dun! di naman pala masyadong matagal eh, slight lang! waaah! para akong nag-opisina sa loob ng salon noh, at sobrang chaket na ng pwet ko sa pagkakaupo, kahit ba lazyboy pa un, hehe. anyway, okay naman ang hair ko so pwede na. medyo malaki nga lang ang ginastos ko, at cash pa! they don’t accept cards kasi, sayang! =(
after that, sinundo ko na si hubby sa office and had a sumptuous dinner. during dinner, i gave him my gift and he was so happy. he’s been wanting that MP3 before pa, pero di ko lang binibili. so this time, ginawa ko nang MP4 para mas maganda. di na kasi kaya ng budget ko ang cellphone eh, kaya yun na muna. tsaka sabi ko we’ll wait for the 3G phone units na para sulit ang pagbili. haha, excuses! =)

it was a successful day for both of us. success for him kasi he got what he wanted, and successful for me kasi nagawa kong itago sa kanya ung celphone ko at lahat ng messages ng mga friends nya about the party, nyahaha! =)

overall, hubby was happy on how his actual birthday was celebrated. and he can't wait for the inuman celebration the day after. and so he thought...=)
