Happy Fathers’ Day


Aliya and I made a  simple card for PaPi’s day, out from recycled cards, magazine cut-out, highlighted by their signatures and palm-print (at the back)… We made it late night and I want this as a surprise to Papi… I asked Aliya not to make noise as we went in our red (craft aka clutter) room , she actually tip-toed and talking in whisper… but when Papi peeked at the room, ALiya said “shhh…papi, secret, we are making birthday (sic. means “father day’) card for you.. 🙂 aha!


Pasta Party! Success!


Great! it’s a success! can’t describe in words the overwhelming mixed feelings of what happened in the party…there are bloopers, there are tensed moments… but that’s just menial compared to the great moments that will stick in our being…. the memory will live on for everybody….

Happy Birthday MAMA!

So, here’s the pictures na lang….

Another Blessed Year for Dad!


It’s birthday once again of Daddy… his 81st! and he is still blessed with agility and coolness and zest for life! I remember that my first blog entry here was about 80th bday of Dad… and now a year had passed and we are still blessed with another opportunity to make our Dad’s bday (and his everyday) worthwhile! Thank you Lord!

For the “birthday mission,” which I organized in a flash, with the help of the “graces” of my brothers, we have “treated” Dad and Mama for a birthday-honeymoon at the newly-opened, fabulous, fluid (and pricey) H2O Hotel at the Ocean Park at Manila.

They stayed at a room overlooking the bay, with a very good view of the famous sunset. Free breakfast (including Jolo and Lean), at bayview deck and 2 tickets at the Oceanarium… Plus, it’s good that they have just opened their swimming pool, and they have given us swimming pass (for 10!)… The foodcourt called “Makansutra” served nice Asian food (at least for us grown-ups).

All in all, we had a great fun experiencing, savoring every moments of peace, relaxation and bit-“luxury”…. I believe Daddy and Mama deserve more than that!
