Two Birthday Parties


Before I went back to China after a three-week vacation, I was able to attend two birthday parties together with Supernanay, Paul, and Xander. The challenging thing is that both shared the same date! One was done in the morning and the other was in the afternoon.

 
First stop was at Max's Salitran, Cavite for the first birthday / christening party of Johan, the unico hijo of Imee (former colleague and close friend) and Melvin. It was like a "get-together" for us ex-HCG employees since we have not seen each other for quite some time. The venue is the same Max's Restaurant where we used to attend company seminars; and where we occasionally drink beer endlessly while enjoying the in-house videoke! Now, we were there with our kids!

Our kids enjoyed the event - the party hats made them princes, they love the "sarap to the bones" meal, they played along (even fought) with the other kids, and they got starstruck with Chickie Boy the mascot.

 
From Cavite, we travelled back to Manila to attend the second birthday of my bestfriend Geline's daughter, Thea to be held at Jollibee Roosevelt Ortigas. When the kulilits saw the big bee, the looks on their faces painted excitement and happiness. Indeed, every kid is the jolliest when he is in this place. I love you Sabado, pati na rin Linggo.

Jollibee the mascot was there the entire party so Les and Lei really enjoyed and had fun. Unlike the other kids, our little angels are not afraid of mascots and clowns. In fact, they were also dancing when Jollibee did his number and they wanted to dance with him on the floor. The twins almost stole the show as if it was their party!

Both parties were really fun. I hope I can be with P&X to attend all the children's parties they will be invited to.




Kuya and Ading's 2nd Birthday



The plan was to celebrate it by going to a theme park or eating at the mall; an exclusive family event. But later on we opted to have a small meryenda/dinner with their Lolas and Lolos, with their Titos and Titas, with Kuya Rap2 and Ethan.

We started the day surprising them with our gift – their new set of table and chairs. This is a great gift for kiddos who love to write, read, and eat! With sleepy eyes, they sat on the chair and started reading books and doodling on their sketchpad. Later on, my in-laws arrived with presents for their apos. They were excited to open their gifts.

THE CELEBRATION

We prepared the usual party food like spaghetti, lumpia, salad, puto, and of course an “Angry Bird” birthday cake. Ice cream was courtesy of their Lolo Ed. Tatay cooked veggie with tofu and mushroom. While Papa and Lolo Felix were the ones in-charged with the menudo. It was nothing fancy; just enough to celebrate it with family and friends.

A year has passed by after their 1st birthday. We celebrated again here at their Lolo Ed and Mama Ly’s house. Papa and Mama, Carlo and Tito Felix were here. Other relatives who take care of Paul and Xander everyday were here to celebrate. Even their Ninong Geline, Ninag Maffie, Thea and Ninong Nezelle joined the event.

As they blow their candles, we look at our twins with pride, love and affection. They are growing up so fast. They are growing up as intelligent, smart, loving, sweet, and curious kids.

HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY PAUL AND XANDER!!! Tatay and Nanay loves you very much.

Activity Table


 
On the morning of their birthday, Paul and Xander were surprised to see Nanay and Tatay's gift to them, an activity table. Upon seeing it in our living room, our kids got excited and repeatedly said "Wow!" while enjoying the little chairs that come with it.  They now have an area to use when they feel like reading their books, doing some doodles, and of course, eating!
 

Mega Bloks




Aside from becoming the next big rich rockstar twins that will beat NELSON, I like Les Paul and Lei Xander to finish college and earn a degree related to engineering or architecture. Well, they can choose what they want to become when they grow up but for now, these mega bloks can help them learn the basics.
