My Birthday Celebration Part IV

For the part IV, I had a mini birthday dinner with my closest friends, ranging from elementary to High School to college buddies. (For all those whom I failed to invite, I'm sorry) I booked us to an early dinner cruise with Sun Cruises along Manila Bay. Know why I love going on cruises? It's because when I'm the one throwing the party, I don't like having late comers. I know I'm unfair cause I'm usually late but I don't like it when someone's not on time. But oh well, as I've said before, there's a difference. As long as I don't inconvenient you in any way and you don't cause inconvenience on my part as well, then we're all good.
Why didn't you invite me?
Are we even close?
HAHAHA (sarcastic)

Upon docking, I had another dinner date with my elementary friends who were supposed to be with us on the yacht but were late.

If this event seems to be familiar, it must be because of THIS.

Travel Philippines: Bacolod

Back to Bacolod

Last Sunday to Monday, thanks to the 3-day weekend, I was in Bacolod city with my brothers to visit our cousins. The days seemed to have passed like a blur because just when we're having so so so much fun, it was Monday already.

Saturday. Lola Ester, Kuya Gian, Gio and I were in the airport around 3am for our 4 55am flight. I was watching the Living Asia channel's feature on Palmas del Mar Resort in Bacolod prior to the flight. Hours later, I was in the actual resort. I didn't know my Titas booked for an overnight stay there, an extension of Wawo's (grandfather) birthday celebration. Do I have decent pictures of the three pools and the lake? No. Did I swim? No. Did I have fun? A lot!

Sunday. One loooooong day! My brothers and I became baby sitters for more than 5 hours. I mean, the adults (though we are of legal age, we're considered kids) were having their siesta naps while we three looked after the three babies. This included playing with them, making sure their bottles of milk are ready in case they ask, stopping would-be fights, and basically not resting. In the evening, we went to where the countdown to the Chinese New Year was set up. It's my first time to experience such a jam packed street party and I must say I enjoyed it. I'll try to sweet-talk my mom into allowing me to go back to Bacolod for the Masskara festival. Hihi

Monday. I played and talked with Caoume all day. We did a little treasure hunting in the afternoon which meant she bought some huge stuffed toys and I bought huge 'toys' as well. Around 5 30pm, Wawo, Wawa, Tita Cay, Tita Mikoy, Lala, and the two kids brought me and my brothers to the airport for our 7 o'clock flight back to Manila.

The moment Elija and Caoume were out of our sights, my brothers and I had the same comment, "I'm feeling under the weather". Here's hoping we'd see more of them before they return to Virginia. We've totally been hooked with their antics!

To Tita Cay, Wawo, Wawa, Lala Ester, Tito Christian, Tito Jojie, Tita Madette, Tita Mikoy, Taedi, Andrew, Caoume, and Elija, thank you so much for the fun filled weekend :)

Henyo Eh

Why do we keep on saying we know all things? Henyo eh. Don't get me wrong, I was referring to our two days in a row game of Pinoy Henyo. My phone turned out to have such application so whenever we feel like testing how good we are at playing charades, we use my phone. Don't judge, syunga (stupid) lang. Hahaha! I was thinking of entitling this post either 'Henyo Eh' or 'Sisterhood... Plus One' but the latter was outweighed by the first cause until now, I can't get over the excitement of playing the game with my syunga turned henyo friends.

My Happy New Year

Look what I found on my drafts box awhile ago. I've totally forgotten about these photos, not that I've so many to share anyway but still. We celebrated the New Year at home, eating and drinking to our hearts' content. Around 10 30PM, we started lighting up the traditional firecrackers and fireworks. Year after year, my dad buys the best New Year crackers and fireworks. My camera's getting older and older each day that's why it can't keep up with such pictures anymore. I tried capturing some photos of them but I didn't get even a single decent photo. Oh well.

While everyone else was setting up the dinner table and other stuff, I was trying to snap away some photos of myself. Haha!
