| busier weekend
|my weekends are really getting busier and busier, which makes me happier and happier! =)
i took a leave from the office for 2 consecutive fridays, because i had so much to attend to.
06/29, friday – my assistant and i left the house early. went to my balloon supplier to pick up lots and lots of balloons & mylars. then to Divi to buy goodies and prizes for my clients. after that, went straight to my bag supplier to get the lunchbags and small backpacks. then to my chocolate supplier to get the Belgian chocolate for my choco fountain. we arrived home dead tired around 5pm!
and since were tired already, tuloy pa din kami sa trabaho, mwehehe. we started with the 32 table centerpieces that we had to do for the 3 parties that weekend. YES, we again had 3 parties! =)
and since we’re really dead tired na nga, we called it a day, ay night na pala yun, hehe. baka kasi layasan na ako ng tao ko kapag di ko pa sya pinauwe eh.
pero syempre ako, tuloy pa din ang trabaho ko bilang full-time Mom & Yaya sa aking makulit na anak.
06/30, saturday – early morning pa lang ay nasa labas na ako to buy the hotdogs and pick-up the kiddie chairs. at 8am, my assistant arrived na and we started with the balloons already. by 1230pm, we left the house for the 3pm party at Lexington Clubhouse in Pasig.
we arrived at the venue by 1pm and started with the set-up. we provided table centerpieces, customized balloons, host (Symond), bubble show, bubble machine, hotdog cart, ice cream cart, kiddie tables, prizes and lunch bag souvenirs.
it was a happy party, Georgia is so pretty and was dancing and singing the whole time. the kids, mostly from St. Paul Pasig, had fun the entire party. they enjoyed the magic show, the bubbles and the bubble show, where all of them had a chance to go inside the big bubble and have their picture taken. the bday girl also loves the rabbit given to her by my host as a gift, but she was always screaming “the rabbit is pooping!”, nyahaha.

the party ended around 6pm. i guess they were all satisfied because Pia (the Tita who coordinated the party) gave us all (including my assistants) tips for a job well done! thanks Tita Pia! Georgia is really lucky to have you as her Tita. :)
btw, it’s also our helper’s bday that day. and as a treat, aside from the gifts we gave her, i also treated them to Jollibee, hehe. yes, we like her na because she likes my son so much, kahit na di sya Yaya. and to those who knows the story of my bad dream, thanked God i’m finally over it. and i’m starting to trust (and like!) this helper already. =)
i just gave money to my Mom and they all went to Joliibee with lil’ boy and my Dad. dapat susunod kami ng tao ko after our party kaya lang, pagod na kami AT madami pa kaming gagawin for the 2 parties that sunday.
we arrived home by 7pm. tired, but still with a LOT of balloons to do. imagine, we were working until 12mn! to think na gumising pa ako ng 6am that morning ha. at super pagod pa sa pag-organize ng party that afternoon. hay, feeling ko nga wala na kaming lakas eh, as in lata na kami lahat kaya i decided to end the night na lang. kahit na ang dami pang gagawin. pinapagalitan na nga ako ng Mom ko eh, kasi nagpapakapagod daw ako masyado dito, at sabay-sabay pa parties ko. okay lang, enjoy naman ako eh. =)
i was able to sleep at 1am na yata.
07/01, sunday – i woke up at 7am and did some of the unfinished balloons. while my assistant arrived at 9am and finished the rest. we left the house w/ hubby at 11am and picked-up my 2 more assistants. nag-dalawang sasakyan pa kami ni hubby kasi super dami naming dala. nung sinundo ko nga yung dalawang tao ko, halos magkapalit na sila ng mukha ng mga lobo noh, katabi, kandong at sa apakan nila ay puro lobo, nyahaha.
we were at Makati Parks & Garden by 12nn, nag-take out lang kami ng food for lunch and ate it there, while waiting for the 1pm set-up time. and as usual, since super kapos ang 1-hr set-up time ng MPG, sa labas pa lang sa sinet-up na namin lahat. pati yung sa susunod na party namin. buti na lang di masyadong kainitan that day.
by 1pm, we started with the set-up inside already. we provided drapes & floating balloons, table centerpieces and all the balloon decors, ice cream & hotdog cart, piñata, personalized standee and Alex, the host.

by 130pm, pinauna ko na si hubby at assistant sa The Little Gym, The Fort to set-up our 2nd party ng 3pm. opo, sabay po ang dalawang parties ko, hehe.
when everything was settled already sa MPG, iniwan ko na ang 2 assistants ko dun and i flew to TLG at 2pm. pagdating dun, i helped sa pag-set-up ng balloon decors (centerpieces and hanging clusters), standee and our super nice styro décor, hehe. and since kami din ang official photographer nila, i started taking shots of the details while hubby was busy with the styro.
at 3pm, the party started already kaya nag-dalawang camera na kami ni hubby. good thing kasi parang there were 2 parties going on ng sabay, one was at the gym where the activities were held with the kids & moms, and yung sa room naman where other guests stayed and ate. so i’m confident that we’ve captured everything naman kasi nga dalawa kaming kumukuha eh.
everybody loved the styro backdrop, i heard a lot of compliments. dami nagtatanong kung san pinagawa, hindi lang ako makasabat ng “ME! ME!” mwehehe, at ang mga balloons at ang mga naglalakihang butterfly mylar, ayun, pinag-agawan ng mga bisita. muntik na ngang di matirhan ang Mom ng bday girl eh.

by 5pm, nagte-text na ang assistant ko sa MPG, patapos na daw yung party dun. so i needed to go back to give the payment to the Host. wala pa kasi sya when i left earlier. so since tapos na din naman yung party sa TLG and hubby was just uploading the pictures to be given to the parents, iniwan ko na sya dun and balik na ako sa MPG.
naguguluhan na ba kayo? lagari talaga ginawa ko eh, hehe. =)
pagdating sa MPG, gave the payment to Alex ang ligpit na ng mga gamit namin. the Mom was thanking me for a beautiful party, "elegant" set-up na naman daw, hehe.
then hubby and assistant arrived na din sa MPG and we all left by 630pm. aliw pa kasi nag-uunahan pa kami ni hubby sa daan, hehe. tipong sisingit pa sya sa akin then bubusinahan ko ng isang matindi at hindi papasingitin, mwehehe. ang tagal na panahon na din kasing hindi kami nakag-drive ng sabay eh, kasi syempre lagi kaming magkasama. i just missed the times na may ka-racing ako sa daan, bad! =)
owel, i't was really tiring, AS IN! pero with all the nice comments we've got, i guess it's all worth it.
congrats to me, hubby and my team for pulling of 3 successful paties in 1 weekend!
next week ulit...=)
