lugi na, abonado pa (the outcome)
please read the first part here to understand the kwento, hehe.

i was able to call my cupcake supplier (the baker mismo) at 6am that saturday and inquired. yung kausap ko kasi nung friday was sa shop lang, and their bakers go home by 3pm yata so she wasn’t able to confirm if nagawa na nga yung mga tinkerbell cupcakes. and so when i asked the baker, di pa daw nagagawa, scheduled pa lang that morning! grrr! eh naka-order na kaya ako sa cake supplier ko, so doble na talaga, nyahaha.

anyway, the main kwento:

06/23, sat, 8am, i went to my supplier to get the alcogel for my saturday party. and the Belle cake was delivered to our house. then at 1030 am, i was already at McDo Marcos Hiway to set-up the cake and souvenirs. the cake was cute, pati yung mga crew nagandahan at nanghingi ng contact number ko, hehe.





after that, went home and played with lil’ boy. i really cherish these days na wala akong full party because that’s the only time i can truly bond and spend time with my son. and sometimes i’m really feeling guilty on this. kasi nga naman, both hubby & i work full time on weekdays, tapos kapag weekends pa, may party pa kami ng Sat & Sun. so actually, i’m both happy if may booking kami or wala. syempre kapag meron, additional income yun. pero kapag wala naman, additional bonding moment and fun yun for the 3 of us. =)

at nalihis na naman ang kwento ko, hehe.

06/24, sun, 10am, we attended the 1030 am mass. after that, went back home to get the delivered cake, cupcakes & lollies. then picked-up the cupcakes & lollies from my supplier 2.

on the way, i texted my client and offered her the extra (special) cupcakes & lollies worth P1,050 for less than half the price. para lang hindi masayang kasi wala namang kakain sa amin nun eh. buti na lang pala i offered, kasi she really needs din pala dahil dumami ang kids nya. kaya ayun, she had a beautiful cake (na ayaw daw nyang galawin at kainin dahil nanghihinayang sya, hehe), and the regular cupcakes & lollies at P25ea and the special cupcakes & lollies at P35ea.



the regular cupcakes & lollies

the special cupcakes & lollies

after the set-up, we just ate lunch na din at Mc Do. and here is my lil’ boy wearing his new Ginebra Jersey, na inaway pa ako ni hubby kasi hindi ko binili, hehe. kaya sya na lang ang bumili, 2 sets pa kamo binili (Ginebra & Alaska), addict talaga sa basketball ang mag-ama ko. =)


then we headed to Robinsons to buy some groceries, then went home and slept.

wow, it’s not really a busy weekend for us. more time to relax, have fun and bond. SARAP! :)

a busy weekend (part 2)
as i’ve blogged earlier, after the Saturday party at Bicutan, i dropped by The Fort first to get the “padala” from my Tita May in the US . then headed na to Dampa in Ortigas. by 6pm, my parents, w/ lil’ boy, Kuya, Tita & helper arrived na. kaya we went to the market na and bought our fav seafoods. then hubby arrived already from work.

we had shrimps in butter & garlic, crabs in oyster sauce, calamares, baked tahong, halaan soup, pancit & crispy pata for Kuya & hubby, hehe. wow, kakagutom ah. as in super ‘lamon’ na naman ang nangyari, haha, nakailang servings nga ba kami ng rice, hehe.


pagdating ng bill, parang nagutom ako bigla sa laki ng binayaran ko, hehe. yung kinita ko dun sa party, nawalang bigla. hahaha. ok lang, anything for my Mom! =) and joint celebration na din daw yun ng Father’s Day ni Daddy. hehe.


after that, we were supposed to go to Greenhills Night Tiangge, kaya lang, as we were crossing Meralco intersection, napansin ni Daddy na may nakailaw dun sa Pajero nya, oil yata or what, di ko din alam eh. so we decided to go home na lang kasi baka masiraan daw kami. hmp, wrong timing, kainis! :)

so pagdating sa house, we opened na yung package. pinakamadaming nakuha si lil’ boy kaya tuwang-tuwa ang anak ko. and he specially loves the Tom the Builder trucks:

thanks Tita Ganda! =)
may mga padalang make-up for me, ang kaso, hindi naman ako nagme-make-up eh. kaya ayun, binigay ko na lang sa Tita ko lahat.

btw, lil’ boy gave his gift to his favorite Lola nung morning pa lang. it was a digital lay-out frame of their pictures. Lola was very happy with his gift. =)


================================================

came Father’s Day the following day.

morning pa lang, i left lil’ boy’s gift to hubby sa bed. so when they woke up, lil’ boy gave them na and greeted his Papa.



hubby was also happy with his gifts. i gave him a special cupcake while lil’ boy gave him the magic magnetic frame, yung nag-iiba-iba yung 3 pictures nila.


i also gave my Dad a simple token and a cookie lollie with Father’s Day greeting.

then we attended the 1030am mass. after the mass, bought some take-out food and went to IL’s house to celebrate naman with FIL and advanced birthday celebration for Miguel. we also gave FIL the cookie lollie and Miguel his rubber shoes.

after a quick lunch together and konting chika, we hurriedly left around 130pm. hinatid si lil’ boy sa bahay at kinuha na ang gamit namin para nga sa photography service namin sa Valle Verde, as i’ve blogged din previously.

o di ba, super busy weekend, as in lagari talaga kami ni hubby.

atleast we never forget to celebrate good times kahit na busy with work and business. =)

a busy weekend
we had 2 parties this weekend, plus the celebration of my mom's bday and father's day x 3. all in 2 days!

june 16, Sofia's 1st birthday! at Chateau Elysee Clubhouse in Bicutan.
we left the house at 10am, unfortunately, my guy assistant didn't able to make it, so kaming dalawa lang ng girl assistant ko. we arrived at the venue around 11am, medyo traffic kasi eh. we ate lunch first, then started na with the set-up.
unfortunately, super init AT super hangin, how ironic. and since open air sya, pahirapan sa pag-set-up ng balloons. kasi lahat hinahangin, kaya ang hirap magtali.
and dahil naman sa sobrang katirikan ng araw, nagpuputukan yung mga balloons, kaya wala kaming ginawa kundi magpalit ng magpalit ng mga pumutok na lobo. hay!
and what's worst!!! pumutok ang napakalaki naming balloon burst! opo, ang balloon burst na napakahirap gawin because you have to put 30 balloons inside the big balloon! and that was the 1st time it happened to me on the actual venue, just an hour before the 3pm party! grabe, parang gusto ko nang umiyak talaga that time. super panic na ako kasi sa 4 hours na set-up namin, feeling ko kulang pa yung time. dahil nga dalawa lang kami ng tao ko (owel, plus yung mga tao ng food cart ko). at habang gumagawa yung tao ko nang bagong balloon burst (eto pa, buti na lang talaga, nabitbit ko yung reserba kong big clear balloon na hindi naman talaga namin dinadala kasi nga never pa kaming napuputukan nun. hay, God is good talaga, parang sinabihan nya ako na dalhin ko yung balloon, hehe) eh ako ang nagkakabit ng lahat ng balloons sa mga windows.
buti na lang talaga, we finished the set-up before the guests arrived. and it still came out nice kahit na super hirap nilang i-capture sa pic dahil nga hinahangin. haha.
here's one of the pic:

and you can view the rest here.

i left at 5pm nd wasn't able to finish the party because it was my Mom's bday and we had dinner at Dampa, Ortigas, she wanted to have seafood overload, hehe.
but this will be in a separate blog later. =)

==============================
june 17, Alyana's 1st bday party! at Valle Verde II in Ortigas.
we were hired by a Party Shop as their official digital photographer! wow, kinukuha na ng ibang party shops ang aming serbisyo, hehe.
it was a successul party! galing ni Leodini, super funny ng kanyang magic. at bilib ako sa illusion nya, ang bilis! grabe! =)
the party was from 3pm to 7pm. after the party, we immediately gave the 2 cds of their pics to the father of the bday girl. and he was so happy to get it that soon, atleast makikita na daw nila agad that night yung party nila. no need to wait.
here is our shot of the cake:

and other pics here.

after the party, super gutom na kami, nalimutan pala naming kumain, hehe. kaya naghanap kami ng nearest na makakainan, ayun, sa Tapa King sa may Acropolis kami bumagsak. super kain to the max, hay, nahihilo na ako nun sa pagod at gutom.

we were home by 9pm. that was the time lang na nakasama namin si lil' boy. :(

then, the following day, back to office na naman. hirap talaga kumita ng pera, mwehehe.

my lil ' boy
my cutie lil' boy is already 2yo.

and at 2, he's still bulol and can't talk phrases yet. it's ok, every kid has his own phase of development. and i know soon, i'll be surprised on how talkative he will be.

but at 2yo, he knows a lot of action songs already, knows the right and the left, knows the basic colors, knows ALL the letters and can count from 1-10. yes, he's such a smart kid, and he's not even schooling yet. =)

he's learned the different basic colors even before he turned 2yo. he's so fascinated with the color green that he chooses to play with his green ball, picks the green crayon to color, loves to eat green veggies (w/c i'm so happy about), and always shout whenever he sees anything that's green. he also knows the colors red, yellow, orange, blue, black & white.

he knows all the letters, though he can't recite the A-Z straight just yet. but he definitely knows the 26 alphabets. he's fond of "spelling" the letters of anything he sees, like the SONY tv, the wordings on his food boxes, our cars' plate numbers, etc.

and he can count straight from 1-10 already. wan, tu, ti, fo, fyv, chix, TE-PEM, eyt, nan, ten! yes, TEPEM is 7! nyahaha. he's so cute whenever he says this, we always end up laughing. hahaha!

but most of all, it's the best feeling whenever he says "ay-lab-yu-MAMA!" and kisses me ALWAYS! aaaw, i so love this boy and will always be thankful to God for giving him to me. =)

3rd anniv @ The Peninsula Manila
we celebrated in advanced our 3rd wedding anniversary last June 9-10 at The Peninsula Manila in Ayala Ave., Makati.
luckily, i didn't get any booking on that weekend, parang alam nilang anniv namin, mwehehe.
and since may work si hubby on saturdays (wawa naman!), kami muna ni lil boy ang nag-bonding.

June 09, 2007
we left our house around 11am, pahirapan pa paupuin si lil boy sa passenger seat ng van. sanay kasi sya na si hubby ang kasama nya pag nakaupo sya dun, at mas sanay sya na katabi nya ako sa passenger seat at hindi nagda-drive. so iyakan muna bago kami nakaalis. pinapalipat nya ko sa tabi nya, eh sino kayang mag-drive noh. so we still left kahit umaatungal sya, binola-bola ko na lang at pinaglaro ng kanyang peborit papap (laptop).

ang executive kong anak; tulog sa pagod, haha

we first dropped by my cake supplier to get the cupcakes of my client (oh di ba, anniv na namin pero may sideline pa din ako, hehe) and our favorite chocolate cake.
then went to Market Market, had lunch at Kenny Rogers. so much fun kasi bonding na naman kaming dalawa lang sa mall, hehe. i had to buy additional lootbags for Smile's party kaya nagpunta kami dun, no time to go to Divi anymore eh.
we left past 1pm and headed to the hotel and checked in at 2pm. eto si lil boy, in-explore ang aming kwarto:




after eating merienda in the room, lil boy nursed and slept while i was watching tv. by 4pm, ginising ko na para maglibot kami sa hotel, hehe.
at since ang tagal ko nang gustong picturan ang falls ng hotel, ginawa kong mowdel ang cutie kong anak (na super cooperative naman =)!


then went back to the hotel and asked for my buffet dinner reservation. unfortunately, di na kami nakaabot kasi full na daw ang buffet, kainis! so hubby told me na magkita na lang daw kami sa Glorietta for dinner.
hay, ang bigat ng bitbit ko! my bag, lil boy's bag, our dslr cam and lil boy himself! at tumawid pa kami ng underpass nun ha. sus!
pagdating sa Glorietta, sumakay kami ng matagal na naming gustong sakyan ni lil boy. yung mga animals na lumalakad sa mall, hehe. akalain mong kinaya kaming dalawa ng elephant. at naka-2 rounds pa kami kasi ayaw bumaba ni lil boy.

then hubby arrived na at 7pm kaya we had yummy dinner in Heaven & Eggs. then nag-ikot-ikot lang kami at shopping ng konti. then went back sa hotel by 9pm.

then, time to celebrate our anniv with our choco cake and hubby's gift, a nice bracelet. =)

after that, time to relax while having fun with lil boy at the tub. :)

while hubby was having fun taking pictures of us and himself, haha.

after that, PG na! =)

June 10, 2007
after the super sarap at super daming buffet breakfast at 9am (na muntik na kaming di umabot kasi sarap ng tulog namin), we went swimming. sayang lang at umulan kaya we had to go back sa room. but lil boy had enough of the pool already, so ok lang. kami lang ang nabitin coz' i wasn't able to swim, just played with my 2 boys.

pagbalik sa room, napagod kami kaya tulog ulit. sarap na naman ng buhay namin. sana laging ganun na lang. nyehehe.
we requested for an extended stay until 2pm, nag-Afternoon Tea Buffet pa kasi kami by 3pm. super yummy deserts, sugar overdose na naman kami, pati si lil' boy na inubos lahat ng ice creams, hehe.





then, it was time to go home, back to reality again. but atleast, we've relaxed even for just 1 weekend. hey, we really deserve it! and boy, we surely had FUN!!!
i promise to come back at The Pen anytime soon,,,i missed the seafod buffet!

owel, it was a happy celebration. imagine, 3 years na kami, parang kailan lang, hehe. time really flies fast when you're certainly having fun. =)

Happy 3rd Anniversary Mahal! lifetime years to come... amwah! =)

expensive month!
June is one of my most expensive months in a year. actually, ranking 3rd.
april being the 1st because of lil' boy's bday and december is the 2nd because of the xmas season.

why june?
1. june 12 - our anniversary. on our 1st year, we had lil' boy's baptism. 2nd year & this year, we stayed overnight in a Makati Hotel (will blog this later). and of course, the anniversary gifts we give each other. and the food galore we have whenever we celebrate. yummy! =)

2. june 16 - my mom's bday. of course, the treat and the gift.

3. father's day. and there are 3 fathers to celebrate it with. 3 treats + 3 gifts. no regrets though, they are the best men in our lives. :)

i'll try to blog all these soon, just so busy that i can't find time to finish everything.

lugi na, abonado pa! :(
hay, this has been a stressful week for me! stressed sa office kaya nadamay pati ang business ko.
this week has been a very busy week for me at work. may deadlines, puro meetings, daming updates, emails and projects to attend to. and of course, there's my business on the side. emails to read, inquiries to answer, personalized packages to create, clients to talk to, suppliers to coordinate, and the list goes on...

so here's the story:
i have 2 orders of this cake for sat and sun.


and i've texted my supplier already about the details days ago. and so all the while, i thought that everything was all ok. i asked the 2 cakes to be deliverd both on saturday morning, para sana makatipid na ako sa delivery charge, tutal the cake can last naman for 5 days pa eh.

this afternoon, while i was in the middle of a meeting (UAT - User Acceptance Testing), my supplier texted me that the cakes are too small (because they ordered 8" only) and can't fit in the castle and the main character. so i texted both my clients if they want to upgrade to 10" instead just for an additional P200. my Saturday client agreed, while my Sunday client hasn't responded yet. so i called her (in the middle of our UAT!), and told her that the castle and the standee Tinkerbell won't fit in the 8" cake. and so she agreed for the upgrade, then reminded me that her topper is not Tinkerbell!

UH-OH!!! i checked her previous text, and was shocked to see that she requested for Jasmin!!! not Tinkerbell! and so i called my cake supplier and asked if she can still changed the topper. but she said na hindi na aabot yun tomorrow and may additional charge na since gawa na din si Tinkerbell eh.

buti na lang pala tumawag ako sa client, kundi...ewan ko na lang! at buti na lang sa sunday pa ang party nya, so napabago ko pa yung topper nya at sa sunday na lang i-deliver. dedma na if doble ang delivery charges ko. ang shungak-shungak ko kasi eh!

and so i thought it was over. eh ang kaso, may order pa syang 15 cupcakes & 15 cookie lollies. na pinagawa ko ding Tinkerbell sa isa pang supplier ko (supplier 2). and so i called supplier 2 and asked if pwede pa palitan. pero pag minamalas ka nga naman, it pours! hehe. 3 days before daw kasi talaga ang paggawa ng candies ng cupcake at lollies, so in layman's term, nagawa na kaninang umaga si Tinkerbell. at since 3 days before nga, di na ako pwedeng mag-additional order dahil super dami din daw nilang orders. hay, ang shungak-shungak ko talaga!!!

bigla kong nalimutan ang ginagawa kong UAT at ang meeting pa na kasunod.

i texted my cake supplier again and asked if kaya pa nya gumawa ng cupcakes & lollies na Jasmin, i-check pa daw nya.

bite the bullet na talaga ako, kahit na mas mahal pa ang cupcakes & lollies ni cake supplier, wala na akong magawa. she retails it at P35 while i offer them (from my supplier 2) to clients just for P25 each. oh di ba, super lugi na ako, abonado pa talaga.

owel, kashungakan ko, kaya no choice! hindi dapat maramdaman ng client ang kapalpakan ko. one of the major booboos ko yata to sa business ko, buti na lang di ganun kalaki ang involved na amount.

thanked God, my cake supplier agreed to do the cupcakes and lollies pa. nakahinga na ako ng maluwag at natuloy na ang meeting namin sa office, mwehehe. di na din ako nag-compute, baka mabwisit lang ako kapag nakwenta ko yung abono ko eh.

at buti na lang supportive si hubby. ganyan daw talaga, minsan may palpak, tao lang din naman ako eh. gawan ko na lang daw ng paraan. and charged it to experience na lang. at sa susunod na lang daw, isulat ko ng maayos para di ako maguluhan kapag sabay-sabay. actually, nakasulat naman sya eh, kaya nga lang, Tinkerbell yung nakasulat. at naalala ko na kung bakit, kasi may kasabay na nag-inquire sa akin nun about Tinkerbell topper, kaya siguro yun ang nasulat ko, hay!

owel, eto pa lang naman ang major kapalpakan ko sa ilang taong nasa business ako eh. and atleast, nagawan ko pa ng paraan, hehe.

hay, blame it on my very busy sched. so do you think i should really concentrate on just 1? work or business? mwehehe.

Tagged!
since i'm so tamad to blog my life yet, i'll answer these q's muna.

i've been tagged by Leirs & JenC.

RULES:

Each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.

1. I so love decorating parties (obvious ba? =). It's not a job or work for me, it's my passion. I can stay the whole day decorating & organizing a party without feeling tired at all. Pag-uwe ng house, dun ko mararamdaman yung pagod, hehe.

2. I also love shopping and going to the mall. I'm usually at Landmark, Glorietta & SM Makati 2x a week, never misses a Friday lunch out (except kapag nag-attend ako ng First Friday mass at tinamad na lumabas). I often go there alone, di kasi mahilig lumabas mga officemates ko eh. And I'm still enjoying it.

3. One of my biggest regrets in life: taking Dianne when I was still single. Not as a contraceptives though, but the OB prescribed that for my irregular menstruation (na wala namang nagyari). At dahil dun, nabago yata ang metabolism ko at bigla akong tumaba!!! Before that, I usually eat 2 cups of rice pero still slim & sexy! But after that, hay naku, forget it! =( kung maibabalik ko lang talaga...

4. I used to love drums and wanted to learn how to play it. But I guess, I'm not really musically inclined, kaya I just married a drummer instead, hehe.

5. I'm proud to say that I exclusively breastfed lil' boy until 1.5 yo (if not for my amoebiasis before, i would have still be breastfeeding exclusively until now). But lil boy still nurses at night and on weekends though.

6. We didn't hire a Yaya since birth. We just have a helper in the house. My mom is the Yaya when I'm at work, while I'm a full-time Yaya the moment I'm home on weekdays and 24/7 on weekends.

7. One of my wishes: a baby girl on 08/08/08. So please do pray for us as we try to make our second angel this November. :)


I’m tagging the following: Abie, Clarice, Dang, Jacqui, Jody, Jopay, Karen

biglang basa nya sa isang card - "te pem"

hahaha.

Hi Apple. Great job on the decors! Really impressive.
Leave a comment for manuturns1

========================================

grabe, it's overwhelming! and i'm always thankful. :)
sana lang magtuloy-tuloy forever. AMEN! =)


and by the way, to my friends and clients who've been texting me on weekends and didn't get a reply asap (as in w/in a minute, hehe, ganyan kasi ako eh, sagot agad!), most probably, i'm in a party (or sleeping, mwehehe). whether pumping a balloon, decorating the venue or organizing a party. and so, my focus is there and not on my phone. hope you understand if i couldn't reply asap. better text me anytime on weekdays and i'm sure to reply in less than a minute, kahit nasa office meeting pa ako. haha.

thanks for your continued support, naks.
and please do visit my website again soon. :)

duyan no more...
kahapon ay tinanggal na finally ang duyan ni lil' boy.
since before he turned 2yo kasi, he often sleeps na in Lola's room for his afternoon nap. di na kailangang i-duyan. FINALLY!!! hehe, nasanay kasi sya sa duyan at direct breastfeed at night eh.
but, the removal of the duyan is one majot realization na naman for me. na hindi na talaga baby ang aking lil' boy! di na kailangang i-hele, huhuhu.
when my Dad told me na tatanggalin na lang daw yung duyan tutal di na masyadong nagagamit, nalungkot talaga ako. nag-emote. nag-isip. at biglang na-miss ang aking "baby".
owel' nothing can stop his growing up. :)

di bale, in my heart, as i always say, he'll always be my baby.

at tsaka, hopefully next year, may bago na ulit akong ihehele, hehe. =)

ay-ay, lob-lob, yu-yu!
just a quick post,
kaaliw si lil' boy lately kapag naglalambing. before kasi, tinuturuan ko syang magsabi ng "i love you".

mama: i
lil' boy: ay
m: love
lb: lob
m: you
lb: yu

pero ngayon, sinasabi na nya mag-isa. yun nga lang, pag nagpapa-cute, ay eto ang sinasabi nya:
ay-ay lob-lob yu-yu!
minsan nga 3x pa eh, tapos paulit-ulit. haha, ang kulit! =)

(baptism x 2) + (birthday x 1) = 3x FUN!
last june 2-3, i had 3 affairs. thank you Lord! :)

==============================
june 02, 2pm @ Makati Parks: Dani's 1st Birthday, Kitt's daughter
unfortunately, there's a party in the morning, so we were only left with 1hr set-up time. additional factors pa na wala si hubby (because nga of Araneta), lil' boy was invited to the party (kaya may additional pang-gulo, hehe), and we had to put drapes on the ceiling (w/c was medyo mahirap i-set-up).
we arrived there at 12nn, and stayed outside under the heat of the sun, doing the floating balloons, w/ matching habulan w/ lil' boy, hehe.
around 1pm, we were finally inside the venue and started with the set-up. super gahol sa oras, medyo panic na nga ako because guests started arriving at 2pm talaga noh.
hay, buti na lang natapos din kami. though i wanted to add floating balloons pa sana, pero di na kaya kasi ang dami nang guests eh. buti na lang, it came out nice naman, and according nga sa mga guests, engrande! :)


we also supplied customized balloons,


Wizzo - the host,


themed hotdog cart (na aliw kasi same lay-out sa tarp nya, hehe)


cupcakes, cookie lollies & mallow lollies,


little tikes playground,


this party was also memorable to me because this is the 1st time that my lil' boy seated on the kiddie chair and enjoyed the show. hay, bata na talaga ang anak ko. dati ay kandong ko lang yan lagi sa mga parties at sinusubuan ko lang ng pagkain. pero ngayon, kasama na sa headcount ng kids at kinakain na ang sarili nyang kiddie food (Joliibee). hay, di na talaga sya baby! :(


w/ our newly-found helper

after the party, nagligpit pa kami and all. pag-uwe sa house past 7pm, gawa ulit kami ng balloons for the next party the following day.

==============================
june 03, 11am @ The Fishing Village, Ninoy Aquino Parks & Wildlife: Jewel's Baptismal, Jlo's 2nd daughter
we were at the venue as early as 8am for the 11am party. we set-up all the balloons in an hour. here are some pics of the Fishing Village turned Flower Garden. ;)




at 9am, hubby & i hurriedly left the place, leaving my 2 assistants to man the Choco Fountain Booth.

==============================
june 03, 11am @ The Club Royale, Malolos Bulacan: Charlize's Baptismal, Pinky's 1st baby
we arrived at the church (Immaculate Conception Parish in Malolos) around 10am for the 11am baptismal at the Bishop's Chapel.
they got our Photo Services! =)
here are some of our shots:

it was a blessed week for our business. :) first time that we got 3 major parties in 1 weekend. and thankfully, the 3 clients were all satisfied with our services.

it was tiring, but so much FUN! happy to see the smiles on our clients' faces. happy to see their guests enjoying every minute of the party. happy to receive inquiries and compliments from the guests. and syempre, happy to finally eat after the party! and boy, eat not just food, but "sumptuos party food"!!! this is one of the advantages din of organizing parties always, you get to eat a lot of real food every weekend. and it's pretty obvious naman how we both get bigger & bigger every weekend eh, hehe, isisi daw ba. ang sarap kasi ng mga handa nila eh, lalo na yung lechon nila Pinky, wow! :)

really, thank you Lord for the parties! :)
