Time to Celebrate 1: Just turned 27

Yup, I celebrated my 27th birthday yesterday and I must say that I really had a wonderful time. I had a shift last Sunday (March 29, 2009) as soon as I enter the production floor, I passed by the QA bay and saw Febe. She greeted me Happy Birtday and I replied "Bukas Pa birthday ko" then Precy said "mamaya na un ano". It was a thoughtful gesture from them that they remember my birthday. They're my former team mates and akala ko nakalimutan na nila, super nagulat ako nung nakaalala sila. I had a shift from 10pm-7am, I took my lunch break without even noticing that it's already 12 midnight. My supervisor and team mates greeted me a Happy Birthday. I was even touched when Jen (Divina) send me an email with a very inspiring message. Thanks Jen. Another Jen (Castillo), a former team mate went to my station to gave me a birthday hug and greeted me. Super touched ako kasi di kami madalas magkita minsan lang pero nakaalala siya. I went home straight away and my mom and sister was there to greet me. My dad also remember my birthday. I usually celebrate my birthday sleeping, or watching movies or just staying at home, parang regular day lang. But for this year, it was one simple celebration pero I can feel the love ng mga tao sa paligid ko. My mom cooked all my favorite dish; Laing, chicken adobo, fish shanghai, and pancit. I just bought a cake from Red ribbon and a roasted chicken. My fiancee greeted me too, and He'll be coming over next week for our anniversary and sabay na din daw niya ung treat niya for my birthday. Dapat ako nag tre-treat sa kanya pero sya tuwing birthday ko lagi syang may treat sa akin hehehehe. Hay, I'm looking forward for another year of good health, success and more wisdom. Sa lahat ng nakaalala sa birthday ko. Thank You Very Much...

What's NEXT:

On my next blog entry you can read the 27 THINGS THAT I LOOK FORWARD FOR THIS YEAR.
Until my next blog entry, toddles!!!!

Aries are noted for courage and leadership qualities, primarily because you are nearly always ready for action. The need for excitement pushes you into new territory -- and as long as you are ahead of others while demonstrating confidence, chances are that they will follow you. As self-ordained leader of the pack, Aries fight for what you believe to be important. But it's not that Aries are fearless. Your courage is more of a commitment to face your fears and overcome them.

Aries motto is "Ready, fire, aim!" It may be backwards for others, but you'd rather figure out what to do while you are doing it. Impulsive actions, however, can bring you your share of trouble. While others are gathering information to make informed decisions, you are already on your way. As such, you could suffer from false starts. In fact, you Aries are so good at starting things that you can be off onto your next project before completing the previous one. As you Aries mature, you learn to slow down your reaction time in order to think about the consequences of your actions.

Sing A Song 2: So In Love

As early as now, I'm preparing the songs that will be played on our wedding day kasi I don't want na kung kelan lang kailangan saka ako maghahanap. I have attended a lot of weddings and then paulit ulit lang yung mga songs nila. I mean siguro di naman maiwasan kasi kung popular na love song talagang maririnig mo paulit ulit.

I have one song in mind na talagang gusto ko. If you're going to read and check the lyrics, I'm sure na magugustuhan niyo din. I like the melody and the message of the song. I like the Acapella version.

Habang palapit na palapit ang araw, I know I can collect more songs for our wedding. If you have any song in mind then pang wedding, you try to suggest some and I'll check it if magustuhan namin. That will be a great help for us. Anyways, here's the lyrics of the first song on our wedding playlist.

So In love
by All for one

As we stroll along together
Holding hands walking all alone
So in love are we two
That we don't know what to do
So in love
In a world of our own

As we walk by the sea together
Under stars twinkling high above
So in love are we two
No one else but me and you
So in love
So much in love
So in love
So much in love

We stroll along together
I tell you i need you oh so much
I love, I Love you my darlin'
Can you tell it in my touch?

As we walk down the aisle together
We will vow to be together till we die
So in love are we two
Just can't wait to say i do
So in love
In a world of our own
So in love
Are you and I

baby, i hope you realize that you mean so much to me
your everything i ever wanted in a woman
to touch, to feel your body close to me
i just want to hold u in my arms for ever
and ever baby

As we walk down the aisle together
We will vow to be together til we die
So in love are we two
Just can't wait to say i do
So in love
Are you and I
So in love
Are you and I
So in lo-ove
so in lo-ove

Blogging Activity 2: Why I need a MERRY MAP

I visited W@W site this morning para naman makibalita fo the upcoming w@w party. Hindi kasi ako makakapunta eh saka limited lang yung slot so inggit mode naman ako. hehehe. Since I've been very busy this past few months di na ng ako nakakapagpost sa yahoo groups kasi dami inaasikaso kaya eto super miss ko na yung w@w. Imagine I have 24,000 emails in my inbox unread yun lahat hehehe. I alot a time naman kahit papaano para basahin ang mga querries ng co w@wies ko. Minsan nga lang di na ako makareply. sorry guys!!! By April, active active na ulit ako hehehe.

Upon checking the site this morning,this caught my attention. Ang cute ng map dun. One good thing I can avail it for free by just posting a blog entry about it. Since ala naman mawawala kung ipost at iblog ko toh sabi ko try ko nga hehehe.


Roj and I make it a point to stick to our wedding budget. When we find a supplier that's beyond our budget nag compromise kami sa ibang aspect para fit pa din sa budget namin. Andami na namin na compromise, like in order to get a good photographer and videographer, nag compromise ako sa gown. Sigh. I wanted Niko for veluz to do my gown kaya lang napag isip isip ko naman makakahanap naman ako ng magaling na couterier na mas mababa ang rate. Our wedding florist nagcompromise din ako, we got na lang a local florist na sikat din naman sa w@w community para ala na out of town fee and mas mura ung quote niya sa akin in fairness. As for the invites, as of know our plan is to DIY it na lang. When I saw this entry sa w@w site sabi ko I must give this a try since ala naman mawawala and it's for free pag nagkataon. Saka DIY na nga invites ko eh so parang special add on na toh. Malagyan man lang ng touch ng mga PRO kahit sa MAP lang namin.

I almost imagine my MAP hehehe. Kasi kami eversince we want a theme talaga na iikot sa love story namin. Yung orange kaya motiff namin sya kasi sinunod lang namin ung color ng "SUN CELULLAR". We started as textmates kasi and I told Roj, why not i-pattern natin sa sim card case ng "SUN" ung invites natin. Then since orange naman ung major color natin lets's add na din autumn as our theme since October naman yun and sa Tagaytay pa, perfect na perfect un theme di ba? So Autumn na Autumn ang ambiance, He agreed and yipeeeeee......un na ang simula ng preps namin. I was excited talaga. Tita Gervy, would add a mobile tower sa tuktok ng cake namin para inline pa din sa theme. Maglalagay din sya ng mga maple leaves para Autumn na Autumn. As for the invites nga mapapatern namin sya sa sun na sim card and I think if may MAP kami na cute, yung magrereflect yung theme namin mas Ok. hehehe. (Since ala naman akong talent hanggang inggit mode na lang ako sa mga marurunong mag adobe at nakakagawa ng sarili nilang invites and map, asa na lang me na manalo diuto. hehehe)

Hay, I hope I can have that map. It would be an advance birthday present for me since I'll be celebrating my bday on the 30th. hehehe. Hay, habol pa naman tong entry na toh. You can visit their site here. I also find the match boxes cute.

Our Wedding Diary 5: Say It with Flowers 2

Since I had a lot of queue empty during our shift, I decided to finalize the flower arrangement for our wedding entourage and wedding bouquet. I badly need this kasi naman this coming sunday, I'll be paying na the downpayment for our wedding florist. Syempre I will sign a contract and I'm planning to print some of the pictures para naman I will attatch the pictures on the contract. Iba na ang sigurista. hehehe. I don't want na pag sa wedding day eh iba ang bouquet ko kaya I want to make sure na nagkakaintindihan kami ng florist ko. Medjo ngarag ngarag na ako sa wedding preps kahit na ganito kaaga. I'm not OA, cguro I'm one OC bride kaya ganito ako, pero syempre you can't blame me every bride wants a smooth and sailing preps, right?

Here's the bridal bouquet that I want and I just hope you'll find it cute and maganda.

Here's a closer view of the bouquet

Isn't it beautiful? I love it!!!

More picture of my bouquet... I really love it!!!

Another glimpse of my bouquet....

And this will be the bouquet's accent....the handle will be wrap in an orange-brownish organza ribbon with crystal accent. Ay.....It's so lovely....

This will be my the flowers for my entourage

This arrangement will be for the 2 mothers

This will be for the Principal sponsor, this will be the selection of flowers.. ganyan na lang...hehehe

pero ganito lang sya pag may handle

As for my flower girls, Toffe give me a very nice idea. Instead na flower petals ung ilalagay ng mga flower girl sa aisle why not daw ung maple leaves para talagang autumn ang feel...uhmmm.. a very nice idea, kung san ako kukuha ng maple leaves, secret..meron an po ....hehehehe. Then meron pa ding flower petals kahit papaano..

ung mag throw ng maple leaves ganito ung baskets

yung parang kahot then pa-paint ko na lang ng mahogany brown para may touch of brown pa din. cute di ba then yung handle niya pupunuiin namin ng maple leaves. Then puro maple leaves ung nasa loob niyan. Since I have a lot of flower girls it will be divided into 2 group ung isang group flowers ang lalagay nila sa aisle while yung second group flowers ang nasa aisle. hay.thanks for the idea toffee...

This will be for the flower girls naman syempre ung lama nya na flowers in shade ng yellow.

Hay, I love these arrangement. Ok po ba sila? We decided na ecudorian roses ung dominant sa entourage and sa mga mothers saka principal sponsors kasi mas practical eh. Kasi aanhin naman namin ang mga flowers na around 20k sa entourage pa lang eh after ilang hours they will serve it's purpose din naman di ba? I mean can you get the picture, if I'm going to use flowers na expensive over sa mga pinili ko pareho lang naman sila dadalhin ng mga entourage, right? They will look good din naman sa pictures, right? Cguro iba iba lang ng priorities ng mga bride, for me di ako masyado gagastos sa flowers kasi po may ibang expenses pa eh. Since maganda naman ang arrangement na nakita ko di ba cguro naman ma-jujustify na din kahit papaano bakit dominant ang roses sa arrangements namin. I mean instead na sabihin nila "Ay roses lang ang flowers ng entourage!" pag ganyan ang arrangement angsasabihin na nila "Ay, ang ganda pala pag roses ang ginamit noh". It's a matter of positive thinking naman di ba? hehehe.

Well, that's just my 2 cents! Kami ni roj un eh, napag usapan naman kasi namin na pede kami mag kuha ng flowers na di gaano expensive pero pag inayos mo sya or na-arrange na sya bongang bongga na din naman.

Whew...na-u-unti unti na namin ang mga suppliers. Till next wedding kwento.
