My son’s 10th birthday is fast approaching and even if 10th birthday is not traditionally celebrated in a grand way like a 7th or 12th birthday we decided to celebrate it this year with a party because we didn’t have a party on his 7th birthday and we don’t plan a party on his 12th. It was his choice. My son likes to have a swimming party on his birthday even if he will not have a party on his 12th birthday.
Choosing a venue, theme, food is like choosing a mandolin, it is not as easy as one think. There are a lot of things to consider.
I don’t plan a grand party, I just want it to be memorable for my son and as well as memorable for me and my husband since it would be a double celebration, my son’s birthday and our 10th anniversary. Hopefully, it would be fun, exciting and memorable.
It’s January 9 already and yet this is just my first post for the year.
I won’t promise anything for the year.
I will just try to post as often as I can, and I hope to post informative posts as well as my personal thoughts and experiences.
I am also hoping of something new for the year 2015.
Just like this new but limited 5 pesos and 10 pesos coins.
Do you have it already? I do, since my husband is working in a bank.
Yup! Just another tired post. My blog is my online diary so for me its okay if I put into words what I feel for the day. I’m tired from preparing the things for our Christmas party and for the giveaway that my boss will give to some of our partners. I bought three bottles of liquor, and I carried it, and now I feel an ache on my shoulder. Maybe, if I boughtpaul reed smith guitar for a gift, I need someone to help me with it. Not like today, I bought and carried the bottles alone. When I need to buy something for our prizes I already called one of our staff for a help, I won’t be able to carry it anymore. Anyway, tomorrow would be our Christmas party so hopefully everything would be in place because as far as I know we have prepared everything. Good luck with the result.
Just before I leave the office, I decided to browse my FB news feed. A certain post got my attention, a post from OPM songs linking it to their website for the Christmas station ID of ABS-CBN. Every year, I am looking forward for the station IDs of the big television network.
This year’s station ID of ABS-CBN is really nice. The video would still probably change, so it will feature their talents, but this video is beautiful because it features few common people who say thank you to the person / people in their life.
The lyrics are simple but it gives the meaning that most of us forget sometimes… to say “thank you”
I posted a copy of the video here for you to see or you could see see MF, oh, I mean go to you opm-musics.blogspot.com where I saw the video.
It’s seldom that my husband doesn’t go to work on a Sunday but last Sunday it was his rest day so we had our family bonding. He was still able to do his favorite Sunday activity whenever he doesn’t have to go to work which is basketball. Afterwards he was able to join us on our Sunday Mass and worship at The Feast Valle Verde. Originally, our plan is to go to Libis after the Session but when the session ended, the weather didn’t look good, the sky is gloomy and just few minutes after we left Valle Verde it rained. So, we just decided to go home because we were so wet.
We ended up at SM Taytay to have our dinner and a few time to roam around. We looked at few restaurants, we probably saw round gingham tablecloth from here and upon seeing Hainanese Delight restaurant our search is over, we decided to eat there.
We enjoyed our meal, had a good laugh and just treasured the time we are all together on a Sunday.
It was National Heroes day yesterday which means, there’s no work and classes. It’s a blessing that we didn’t move the “holiday” at our office so I had a chance to have bonding with my son and one of my brothers, Christian.
I still have to wake up early to prepare our breakfast and iron my husband’s uniform (as he still have work). After eating breakfast, my son went on to see if his uncle is already awake, and since the uncle is still sleeping, we have to wake him up.
After few minutes, we are ready to go and have our biking and bonding. From our place in Floodway, Cainta, we went to Santolan Pasig using our bicycle and rested for a while at a popular fast food restaurant. We pass thru Manggahan, Pasig going to Cainta passing thru Greenland subdivision going to our home. My son were tired though we were in a slow pace and I am proud of him that he was able to bike that far.
I hope we will have a chance to have this exercise / bonding again.
