Honey's 40th Surprise Birthday Bash - The Invites (Part I)

I started bringing on the surprise birthday bash for Honey three weeks before the celebration. I began with his colleagues all the way from his very first job, EXTELCOM, then NESIC, MOTOROLA, and to his current workmates in ERICSSON through their e-mail addresses. I asked for the help of Honey's friends from these companies who are still in touch with their fellow engineers (I'll acknowledge their names on the next posts). So you could just imagine how many emaill addies I sent to (wink!).

The invitation went like this:


This is Joan, wife of Bobby (Roberto Santiago).

Bobby has finally hit the big 4-0!!! His family is planning to throw a surprise birthday bash for this event.

Please join us on:

Jett's Birthday Feast @ Power Kids Academy

It was fun! Everybody enjoyed the tricks and magic of the lady clown. It was held on the last day of their schooling before the year caps off, which was on the 13th of December. Jett's real birthdate is December 24th.

This year is Kuya Jett's first school year, so for a change, I decided to observe his birthday with his classmates and mentors. Aside from the fact that much of our yearly party budgets went to his Dad's surprise birthday party, hehe (standby for my post regarding that party). There were clowns, food from Jollibee, balloons, and a school bag as giveaways. And of course, I bring along our recent family member, our baby Jedd. Honey was astray that day, but he was here on the 24th itself.

Happy Birthday Kuya Jett! I hope more birthdays will come and you still allow us to kiss and hug you soooo tight! Love you sweety!

Noel Bazaar 2007

Yes indeed! We were at the much awaited and blab of the town bazaar during the Holiday Season... The NOEL BAZAAR in World Trade Center Pasay City. I'm a self-confessed "cheapaholic" (hehe), so I asked Honey if we can pay a visit. It was my (our) first time to be at the exhibit, and what can I say, "I Love It!".

There were foods, fashion show, magazines, clothes, antique housewares, shoes, souvenirs, and of course, my ultimate fancy ... bags! hehe. Wherein I bought one native handbag from KALIQ on a super marked-down price (I compared in Robinsons Galleria, and I save 40% more, wow!).

You certainly would encounter here all the greatest finds in the city. In fact, a quarter of my holiday giveaways came from this bazaar.

I really can't wait for NOEL's next year visit!!! I wish he'll do it twice in 12 months!
