The one with a party!

I'm so behind, so sorry!

My daughter turned seven last March. wohoo! it was such a blast! i enjoyed everything and thanked God for all the blessings and provisions for the party.  I still can't believe i have a seven year old already. where did the time go??? waaahhh!

I realize, even if i'm a party planner, when it comes to your kid, planning makes it a little more challenging. I asked for her choices, what she likes, what theme she wants (although we had a hard time with this) and what activities she wants to see at her party. I'm glad she was very excited planning for it, doing a countdown as the day got nearer.

We had jive, golden show, flooch, alex lagula, face painting, kiddie salon, personalized stamps and hairbow making activities. whoa! both adults and the kids had super fun! I even rented separate sound system and lights for the party, allen & heath zed 10fx used should have been an additional fun but we did'nt hire a band so no need for it already.

I will post pics and share more details soon.

The one with back up

It's new year. and what a good way to save photos and special memories that to buy an online disk space. i've always wanted that for years and paying 200 pesos a month to make sure all your files are safe, i think that's not a bad thing. Like for music, you can save on protools 9 at Musicians Friend.  you can save your work and assure yourself that it will be saved online until your future use of it.

Now i'm thinking if i want smugmug or flickr. hmmm...

The one with phone in the sink

I got my phone sunk in a bowl...worst, a toilet bowl! waahhh!!! i feel so guilty and embarassed that i had to change phones almost every 6 months because either i lose them, or get them broken.  Unlike my husband, he has a very good hand in taking care of his gadgets, even the crate guitar at Musicians Friend.  I just hope i can do the same with my phones and laptop :)

The one with a new year itch

Let me tell you a secret...i've been itching for something luxurious but i cannot and will not be allowed to buy one.  Simone's 7th birthday is nearing and we need to set aside  budget for that. I know I'm a party planner and planning her birthday should be a breeze. But if you have a husband who's as keen as an auditor, planning will be a challenge.

Anyway, i'm sure i'll be able to look for a Scott Kay jewelry collection in the future, not near but definitely in the future. hahaha.

The one with additional business

I've been planning to start another small business so I can diversify and not get burnt out with my current business. Plus it also gives me a new excitement everytime I start something new :)

I started by purchasing a printing machine months ago.  I have'nt tried making samples yet but I really want to start with it.  Hopefully, early this year, I can make some samples and try to sell. Who knows? eventually, i might have a complete line of equipments including a bending machine, photo machine and others :)


The one with new year, new cookies!

We recently bought a small electric oven so i can add another activity with Simone..baking. And I want to cook healthier meals (read: helper will cook, i will just instruct)

I'm so happy with the first batch of cookies i made.

I'll post the recipe on a separate entry.  I'll try to prepare healthier meals for this year and bake goodies so Simone would bring this to school and brag about her mom baking cookies. hahaha.
