One of the things that are keeping me busy as a bee the past few weeks, is the preparation my son’s family day in school. Being a parent representative for their section, there were lots of tasks to prepare for Saturday’s big event.
Family days are conducted to promote unity amongst each member of the family and the school through presentations and other fun activities in an atmosphere of Goodwill and Camaraderie.There were celebrity guests, magician, and a variety of performance showcasing the talents from the students. Below is a photo op with Christian Bautista, and my fellow parents.
Of course, a family day will not be complete without games. In which, I together with a co-parent hosted.
Whew! That’s the highlight of our weekend. I hope you and your family had a fabulous as well.
For some reason, I always find myself super busy these past weeks. It’s probably because the Christmas season is fast approaching.
We woke up very early Sunday morning to attend a wreath laying for my departed Father-in-Law. It is in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Signal Corps. The Signal Corps is part of the Communications, Electronics and Information Systems Service, of the AFP (CEISSAFP).
The CEISSAFP Signal Corps has been pursuing efforts to ensure the military have the best communications systems to support its men. It’s indeed a great honor that they are paying homage to Signal Corps soldiers who have served the nation especially those who have went ahead of them. The small ceremony was held at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Fort Bonifacio. We also took the time to offer our prayers at the grave of my Father-in-Law.
After the ceremony, we grabbed the opportunity to hear mass at the St. Michael the Archangel Parish which is just nearby.
Unfortunately, we were so in a hurry that I forgot to bring my camera. Good thing I have the camera phone handy. All photos were taken using my Samsung Wave.
I love to hear how your weekend went. Just leave your links and I will follow….
Have a good week ahead!
Sunday was spent at my Mom’s house, since it is a long weekend here in the Philippines (due to the Barangay Elections). At least, I do not have to worry that the kids need to go home early. Fortunately, it is also my sister’s birthday so the kids have all day to bond with their Tita.
My sis decided to treat us for dinner at Chef’s Table located at The Infinity Tower, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. Chef’s Table is a dinner by reservation restaurant which serve Filipino cuisine with a twist. It’s the latest freestyle dining in the Metro.

Hubs and me…
The celebrant with my brother and Chef Bruce Lim (the owner of Chef’s Table)
I think it was a good choice that we decided to dine here. I only have three things to say: The place is cozy, the food is exquisite and the service is superb. I am always biased to good service, with all the restaurants sprouting like mushrooms in the Metro, good service will definitely give you an edge. At Chef’s Table, the waiters will make sure that you have everything you ordered and once in a while Chef Bruce will come to your table and ensure if you’re doing just fine. That’s what I call personal touch, which is an edge in terms of customer satisfaction.
Of course, no birthday celebration is complete without a birthday cake. I decided to give her Estrel’s Caramel cake which is just so temptingly delicious.
To my dear Sister: Happy, Happy Birthday! May the good Lord give you your heart’s desire. We love you!
I hope you all had a blast this weekend.
Last Saturday, me and my son attended a birthday party. The celebrant is the son of my high school batch mate. It was a themed party — “Disney Royalty” is the theme of choice. It was so cute to see all the children wearing the most adorable costumes. Of course, my son being a tweener refused to wear a costume.
This is probably the first theme party that I attended where even the parents wore costumes, like a King and Queen. Isn’t that cool?
Of course, a true Filipino party is not complete without Lechon.
Too bad I have to leave early because my son does not want to join the games anymore and he gets bored easily. It was truly a feast it for a prince. Happy Birthday, dear John Glenn!
It was a fun-filled weekend for us and I hope you also had a blast during the weekend.
June is the birthday month of two wonderful people — my one and only brother and my lovely daughter.
Kuya had his birthday bash last Friday with his friends and co-workers. My sister, hubs and I decided to join him for this special day. Although most of his visitors are people whom I hardly know but I don’t need to be acquainted with them to see how well-loved my brother is. I am very happy and proud to have a very hardworking brother. Someone whose perseverance is commendable that he can triumph everything he sets his heart into. I’m so proud of you, Kuya!
Saturday was my daughter’s birthday. We had a simple dinner with my family. Since I belong to a very small family and never got the chance to know most of my relatives, we always make it a point that we bond as much as possible.
Happy Birthday to my brother and to my charming daughter! I wish you all the best!

It’s our wedding anniversary and being mindful of the times, we decided to commemorate our union as simple as possible. After our usual Sunday morning mass, we decided to head out to Shangri-la and check out Rustan’s Fire Sale. There’s nothing much on sale so we decided to buy some stuff for the kids.
We ended up drooling at Frostings Cupcakes and grabbed one for each of us….
A late lunch at Fish and Co. was in order. Pardon my photo collage, I tried not to include myself (but decided otherwise) since my face is still bloated as an effect of steroids. I have been prescribed to take the meds for my heat rash which is all over my body.
Knowing that my family is happy and all in good health is enough to celebrate our blissful union everyday. I thank the Lord for the bond that he has given me and my hubby and I pray that it will become stronger as the years pass.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

It’s MIL’s birthday and it was a mini reunion for my hubby’s family. Coming from a very small family, I truly appreciate gatherings like these where you get to touch base with your relatives. Honestly, I was not able to take a lot of photos because I was busy attending to visitors and because of the paralyzing heat.
Cousins-in-law with my daughter….
Of course, the kids will always enjoy console games while the adults are chit-chatting
Here’s my youngest cousin-in-law, ain’t he cute?
Happy Birthday MIL!

I hope you all had a very good weekend.
After hearing Easter Sunday Mass, we headed to my MIL’s house to celebrate two occasions, Easter Sunday and the birthday of our nephew/godson.
My BIL and his wife prepared the Easter Eggs for the kids to hunt. It was so nice to see them all over the place looking for those hidden eggs. It’s a tradition that I didn’t get to enjoy when I was a kid. The look on their faces upon finding their loot is truly priceless.
It was a relaxing Sunday with my in-laws something my hubs look forward to during a long break from work. Of course, a birthday will not be complete without a birthday cake…
Happy Birthday to our dear nephew and Happy Easter to all of you!
