| Happy 1st Birthday Bea!
|last Saturday, 01/27, i met with Eileen at CVJ Clubhouse to discuss about her
daughter’s 7th bday. funny kasi April 09 din ang birthday ng kid nya, at sa CVJ din ang venue. exactly last year, we were also at that same venue to celebrate my baby’s 1st bday.
side kwento: even before she inquired, i wasn’t planning to celebrate my lil’ boy’s bday on the 9th of arpril. kasi i was thinking na it’s a holiday monday after the holy week. so most people will likely extend their holy week vacation to Monday, or some might be tired na from the long vacation. we also have plans for that 5-day holiday so hindi ko din maasikaso. so if budget permits, lil’ boy’s party will be on the 14th, cross-finger! =)
back to the main kwento…i just took measurements of the place again where we want decors to be placed, then we continued discussing sa nearby McDO, may kiddie party na kasi kaya we had to leave.
hubby and lil’ boy followed sa McDo later for meriend, then we all left before 6pm to hear anticipated mass at OLA. after the mass, we went to IL’s house to celebrate Achie’s (niece) 11th birthday. as usual, lil’ boy had a happy time playing with his 3 cousins.
then went home around 10pm. i arranged everything that we’ll use for Bea’s party the following day. then slept early together again for the 1st time that week, kasi nga sa dami ng racket, lagi kaming puyatan ni hubby.
Sunday, 01/28. woke up at 8am. my assistant arrived na so we started doing the balloons already.
on the other hand, we were scheduled to talk to Tita May in the US around 11am. they’ll celebrate kasi my Kuya Alan’s bday there sa kanila. kaya i set-up pa the PC, the webcam and everything. around 11am, ayan na, usap na kaming lahat kaya super kulit. my whole family was so excited to talk and see them all there in the US. my Kuya and his gf, my Tita May’s (mom’s sis) family and Uncle Pong’s (mom’s bro) family were all there, kaya ang saya ng usapan namin. aba, at pinapakita pa yung handa nilang crispy pata sa amin, favorite kasi namin yung handa ni Tita May when they were still here eh. kaya lang ako, di masyado makapag-concentrate sa usapan kasi i had to go out and do the balloons.
super tagal nilang magkaka-usap, mga 2 hours siguro, ang kukulit nila. lalo na yung Kuya BJ ko, kinuha ba naman yung baby album ni Kuya Alan at pinakita dun sa gf nya thru the webcam, asar-talo tuloy si Kuya, haha.
around 12nn, we’re all in a hurry na. just ate a quick lunch and off we went to Somethin’ Fishy. binaba lang kami ni hubby dun and balik ulit sya sa house to get the remaining balloons, the mascots and lil’ boy. kami naman ng assistants ko and the clowns, set-up the venue already. before 2pm, hubby arrived na w/ lil’ boy. kaya hindi na ako masyandong nakapag-trabaho kasi nakakapit na si lil’ boy sa akin.
guests started arriving before 230pm, super aga nila for the 3pm party. kaya naman naabutan kami nung iba still doing our finishing touches. Karen, the mother kasi advised them to go early kasi we were expecting a heavy traffic since there’s an on-going show for Ely Buendia, which turned out na wala naman palang gaanong nagpunta.
the party started past 3pm. it was ok and they had a good time with the clowns and mascots. as usual, after the party, ubos ang mga balloons ko. pati nga yung mga standees, gustong iuwe ng ibang bisita eh, hehe.

after the party around 6pm, diretso kami sa Cainta, sa new house ng Tita Pinky ko. lumipat na kasi sya dun that Sunday kaya sinamahan namin for their 1st dinner there. my parents were already there waiting for us. kalungkot lang kasi lumipat na din si Tita, eh kapitbahay lang namin sya before at laging nasa house namin to visit lil’ boy. now, medyo malayo na din sya sa amin. hay! =(
we were home by 11pm, so tired na din. another weekend na hindi din namin gaanong namalayan, hehe.
but still, thank God for the parties! =)
