DIY Party

>> Saturday, March 15, 2014

Birthdays should not always be lavish and expensive. One can look for ways to come up with ingenious ways to make even a small venue like one’s house look festive. Go to Pinterest and you will surely find a lot of DIY ideas when it comes to decors, invitations, food presentation, etc. One can also save on ef-400 fog machine from guitar center. I just checked now and it is really affordable! You can buy one and for ROI, you can have it rented to friends who are interested.


Que Horror!

>> Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Last Friday, we celebrated my daughter’s birthday with a dinner in a fine restaurant that highlight modern Filipino cuisine – MESA. And as a tradition, our daughter gets to buy new books as a part of her birthday presents (it’s not that she doesn’t get to buy any all year round. Haha!). As she was picking her titles, my husband and I went through the aisles and at the Horror Section, I found this:
Kakasweldo pa lang, UBOS naThe book, ”Kakasweldo pa lang, UBOS na?” was there along with Charlaine Harris’ books. Hahaha! It’s either someone found it humorous and fitting to be placed there or it was mindlessly left there. But seriously, it can indeed be scary! You worked hard for your salary for 15 or 30 days and then it’s all used up! I was not able to skim through this book but I will surely look for one when we go visit the bookstore again. Financial management is one interesting subject and it is a good life skill to learn and to teach.


It’s Her Birthday!

>> Monday, March 3, 2014

How time flies. Our daughter will be celebrating another birthday this week and I can’t help but be sentimental. It seems like it was yesterday when she was so small and helpless. Last night, since a lot of people have been commenting about how tall she is for her age, we took out her Dad’s measuring tape and measured her height. And I was right about my estimate. She is 5’4” at 11 years old. I wonder how tall she would be as an adult. Most likely taller than me!

And since it is her birth week, she has been very vocal about her wishes. She is asking for a lyre, an

akai lpk25 keyboard or a guitar. But let us not forget new books. Those always top her wish list no matter what the occasion is. We are OK about the books but we still have to talk about her preferred musical instruments and whether she’ll be interested in it for a long run. It is a good thing that the summer break is almost here and she can choose which music classes to pursue, apart from a cooking/ baking class.
