The little boy will be turning 3 next month and I’ve been planning for this party ever since September last year. All suppliers booked and ready to go. All I have to do is pick up the goods. Oh yeah!
Of course, I need a birthday logo and thank you tags for his party favors. Thanks to Googly Gooeys for making this really cute layout. No revisions whatsoever, it was love at first sight. Thanks Tippy!
Venue? Of course, walang kamatayan na Jollibee! My son loves Jollibee so pagbigyan.
I blame Paula and his boyfriend, Edd for this splurge again. I asked Paula to ask Edd to look for Jordan Breds for Luc. Well, they found one kaya lang nakabili na ako ng Green Glow for Luc. But then the Gamma Blue AJ 11 came out. Meron daw size para kay Luc. Ugh! To make the long story short, binili ko. hahaha
The little boy loved his new AJ’s. He looks so big pag suot nya. As in…he looks 5 years old na nga eh! Aww! My baby is now a boy. They grow up so fast!
I first heard about Wicked almost 5 years ago thru Abigail. It’s the untold story of the Witches of OZ, Elphaba and Galinda. The original production premiered on Broadway in October 2003 and stars Idina Menzel as Elphaba and Kristen Chenoweth as Galinda. It was a critically acclaimed production winning over 3 Tony Awards.
I was supposed to watch it last 2008 in Pantages but then things didn’t work out with my schedule. Argh! I was so frustrated and I swear that I will watch this show no matter what. So when they announced that Wicked is coming to Manila…I literally went berserk. I had to watch it. I asked my closest friends to come and watch it with me. Since most of them are music lovers, pumayag sila.
Wicked is currently playing at the CCP. It premiered last January 22, 2014. It stars Jemma Rix as Elphaba and Suzie Mathers as Galinda/Glinda. Oh boy, it was such an awesome show.
I had goosebumps while Elphaba was singing Defying Gravity. It was waiting for that moment for almost 5 years. It was so surreal and I know I will never forget it. This is one show you wouldn’t want to miss.
I never talk about this particular guy to anyone probably because he was the first person I ever hurt. There was once a time in my life that I felt like I was Angela Chase and he was Jordan Catalano. The “Hi’s”, the stares, simple conversations here and there, that giddy high school feelings. For a number of weeks, I felt like I was a kid again. We went out. Went out for movies and it was so funny the first time he held my hand. He was shy about it and he asked me if he could hold my hand. I promptly said…”yes, you may…”. There was this sparkle in his eyes that night. I was on the other hand, confused.
We kept it a secret. I didn’t want anybody to know that we had a thing. I don’t know why. It’s not because I didn’t like him, it’s because I was confused. He made me feel special. He made me feel wanted. He treated me like I was never treated before. I liked it but I don’t know if I wanted it. I liked him. I mean, who wouldn’t. His hair, his eyes, his lips. I like the way his hair runs thru my fingers. I liked the way he holds my hands or the way he would wrap his arms around me while we were walking. The moment he told me…”Why do you let him do this to you. You deserve someone better.” I knew, right then and there…he loves me. I think I loved him but it’s not enough for me to pick him or stay with him.
I’m glad it happened. I’m glad that for a short period of time, I felt special. I owe that to him. I know now that the time I spent with him is much more greater than the years I spent with Marlone. We connected, even for a short period of time.
I don’t have any regrets or what if’s. I’m glad it happened and I’m glad it was over. It was for the better.
Anak, why so handsome?!
Our usual Sunday morning…Meg watching some Korean videos online while my son, well…switches from playing Minion Rush and Fruit Ninja.
Everyday you amaze me Lucio. Such a pilyo and spoiled young boy. It’s okay baby, just be a good boy and continue studying hard ha! I promise you, you’ll have fun in Disneyland, SeaWorld and San Diego Zoo. Grandma Mel will take you to San Francisco to see the Sea Lions and the Golden Gate Bridge. You’ll finally get to meet your Ninang Abby, Ninang Dengdeng, Ninong Mikee and Ninong Mars. I love you, anak! You will be raised just like Mommy, mas better pa than Mommy. Don’t get me wrong ha! Mommy never had any regrets growing up. You will never step foot sa isang toy store pag laki mo and say…”I wish I had those when I was young…” Mommy will never make you feel any different than others. You will live a wonderful life. You will be contented and you will grow up to be a God-fearing kid.
I’ve been cooking and baking for the last month or so. I just got into it by accident and I’m loving it. Since I love cookies and I love sweets, I decided to just bake them myself. Those cookies that I used to buy are quite pricey and I realized that they’re fairly easy to make. I use premium ingredients. Why? Because ako kaya kakain nyan. hahaha Of course I wanted it to taste really good. Anyways, after experimenting and reading those health buff books, I was able to come up with the right recipe for my healthy cookies. It’s made from Muscovado sugar and coco sugar. Taste just right! Not too sweet and not to bitter. Perfect! I already received 3 dozen orders for my healthy cookies. Sideline nga eh! I love it!
Oh! Lucio loves them too! Yebah!
After 2 days, we were able to check out the new Jollibee Bagong Barrio. It’s big ha! I mean, the party place’s capacity is around 120 pax. Instead of Jollibee West Ave, dito na lang kami sa new Jollibee. It’s near and we won’t have a hard time bringing Papa there.
Party preps? I am way over my head. I decided not to go overboard just like what I first planned. Yes, the suitcases and cake jars will still be there but instead of ordering Macarons and Kalookies, I’ll bake the cookies myself. I mean, modesty aside…my cookies are to die for not to mention they are healthy coz they are made from Coco Sugar and Muscovado sugar. Marami na nga ako orders. Oh did I mention that they are made from the finest Belgian chocolates? No, I am not talking about Hershey’s…I’m talking about Callebaut! Yes, I use Dark Callebaut Callets for my cookies.
So, I’d probably be very busy 2 days before his party kasi I’d be running errands and picking up the whatchamacallits ng party ni Luc. Lucio turns 3!!!
