catching up series: avie is one

If ate Faye turned five last November, Avie, on the other hand, turned one the next month. Yayy! The parentals also decided to have her christened on her birthday. Tipid tips! Hahaha! She was baptized at Ascension of our Lord Parish then reception slash birthday celebration followed at City Buffet. Of course it was a busy month for me again working on the banner, souvenirs and candles. There's no point in denying, I'm obviously enjoying this banner thingy. Hehe! Matter-of-factly, I'll be blogging about another birthday celebration wherein I volunteered myself for what else, banner creation! Oops!

Wait! What are we talking about again? Haha! Uh yeah, Avie's birthday. It was unfortunate that it was a weekday and only Dana and I were able to make it to the family gathering. Well, sort of. Because we didn't make it to the ceremony. Ninang pa man din yung isa. Hahaha! Anyway, most visitors were folks from Royal Gem {ate Faye's school}, then mommy's relatives and few friends of daddy. 

at least we made it to the picture taking :P

And then here's the banner I made. *points to the photo then says tadaaaa* Hahaha! I promise I won't blab too much about this but I really have to thank Pinterest for the idea. I won't take all the credits pero ang galing ko talaga. Hahaha! Kidding. It's all Pinterest. :P Of course we have to take a moment also to appreciate mommy's cake and cupcakes. Huzzahh! We've been surviving birthdays on DIY mode. 
balloon decorations and table arrangement by City Buffet though

I didn't take much photos during the reception 'cause they didn't assign me naman to be the official photographer. Hahaha! Kailangan pang iassign? :P Palusot aside, I was busy eating and playing with the kids the whole time. Although I regret that I wasn't able to take decent photos of the kids. They were all over the place so it was really hard to do so. Plus ayun nga, busy ako sa pagkain. Hehehe! Sorry na. ✌️

Royal Gem represent!

Up next is the family's extended celebration 'cause as I've said most of us weren't able to make it to this party. Di lang papalugi ang lolo't lola? Hahaha!

catching up series: oh eastwood, dear eastwood

This happened early December. After what seemed to be ages, I finally decided to show up to friends. Actually, the universe had to give me a couple of reasons for me to get out of my cave - (1) Tiny's birthday, (2) Monique's promotion, and (3) the fact that I haven't seen them for half a year already. Last saw them June so yeah, kinailangan kong lumabas ng lungga. Hahaha! 

Why Eastwood, then? 'Cause it has become our default hangout and 'cause why not? It's where they work and where we all used to live. So Eastwood it is! Even if it's inaccessible AF. 

Anyway, it's a normal working day for them so I had to meet them for dinner. We ate at Gerry's courtesy of the celebrators, of course. But more than the food, I enjoyed the kwento & chismis more. Haha! I guess that's what happens when you're gone for a long time. At isa pa, sino ba naman ang ayaw ng chismis dba? Hahaha! Kidding! Napaghahalataang chismosa. :P

hindi ako maliit, okay?
wala kayong ebidensya! walaaaa! ✌️

After dinner, we stayed for a good while outside Citywalk. Under the tent? You know, the seats outside? There! How do I even properly address them? Hahaha! So anyway, the whole time we were there, we were teasing Job for "not existing" because he's been quiet. Monique even posted on Facebook that Job wasn't able to make it to our meet up. Hehe! Medyo bully talaga yung Monique eh. Lalo na yung Tiny. Nakooo! Hahaha!

the things one would do for friendship
err.. for a photo! :P

Unlike last year, I've been visiting Eastwood more often now. Another friend {Hi Celine!} is back in Las Islas Filipinas for good and she got assigned in Eastwood too, come on! Another reason to want to live in the place again. Oh Eastwood, dear Eastwood.
