Ordering the cakes for their birthday

Time flies really fast.  My niece who was born October last year will now celebrate her first birthday next month.  It is like yesterday when her mother gave birth to her and now she turns one (1).  Just like what she did to her two sons, the sister wants the first birthday of her baby girl a memorable one. She is planning to have a huge celebration (not that huge though) because it will be a double celebration for her baby girl and her husband have the same birthday.  There will be two cakes on the table to share and expecting more visitors to come.

The motif of the niece is hello kitty and the father is the clash of clans character.  I am ordering cakes from a friend.  I also told her of the cakes design and the sizes.  I am glad I have a friend who is into this business because I get discounts from the cakes I ordered.  I haven’t tasted the cakes she made so I am curious about how good she is.  She is still looking for the designs and will message me once the design is made for our approval.  The birthday celebration will be great and memorable I must say.  The list of the foods to prepare is on a process.  Hopefully, the sister finished the plans two weeks before the event.  I can sense a tiring and busy day is coming.  Good luck to me and to us!

Borrowed the wedding gown of my friend

The brother is getting married soon.  He asked me of where to rent a wedding gown for his bride.  I plan to look for a wedding gown or full wedding entourage in boutiques and dress shops but don’t have time yet.  I already asked the brother of his budget so I know where to go and what to pick, also asked him of their wedding motif.  The sister’s bride suggested to just buy a made to order wedding gown, but I think it will cost them a bit.  They are on a tight budget and buying new wedding gown is not a good idea.

I wanted to help so I called a friend of mine if we can borrow her wedding gown.  The wedding gown that my older sister borrowed on her wedding day.  I am so happy that she said yes.  I told the brother right after my friend responded to me.  I told the brother that the wedding gown is the one worn by the sister on her wedding day.  So, they will be wearing the same wedding gown.  My older sister is found with my suggestion too.  Fortunately, they have the same body built.  We just have to bring it to the laundry shop to have to dry clean.  I will still look for gowns in boutiques and dress shops for the bride’s maid, maid of honor, groom’s men and groom.  Hopefully, all will get ready for the brother and sister-in-law’s wedding.

Preparing for the fiesta celebration

In two weeks, our village will celebrate fiesta celebration.  And we usually have a feast to share with our invited guests, relatives, friends, neighbors and unexpected visitors.  We have been doing this for years and I am doing the preparation for years too.  The only difference is that I do not have my sister with me to help me with all the preparation.  I must say it is tiring especially on the day of the celebration because I do the cooking, cleaning the kitchen area, washing the dishes and a lot more.  Hopefully, I will get a help from my two nieces who are not 12 and 14 years old.  I really hope so.

Anyways, went to the department store last Monday to buy some things needed in the kitchen.  I bought new table cloth, new towels, and rugs.  I opted not to buy new curtain this time because of the limited budget.  I will buy new curtain next time.  I have several on my list to buy, just that I have limited resources.  I must wait for the sponsor so I can proceed to buy the needed for the fiesta.  I have also listed the menu to prepare for the celebration, the desserts, and fruits to put on the table.  I have less than two weeks to finish it, I do hope I have the power to finish it all before our fiesta celebration on September 9, 2017.

Kadayawan Festival Sale

photo not mine

People are looking forward to the Kadayawan Festival event in the city.  Aside from the activities that the city government is preparing for the people to enjoy, everyone is looking forward for the mall wide sale.  To some shoppers, Kadayawan Festival Sale is the perfect day to shop because of the different offers like huge discounts, buy-1, take-1 promo, and many others.  This is the perfect time to shop because you will buy the product at the lesser amount.  The only problem is that for sure the mall and department store is for sure a crowded place to go during this mall wide sale.

My older sister grabbed this perfect time to shop.  She went to the mall and bought some stuff like shorts for her sons, the toy car for the boys and toys for her baby girl, clothes for herself and shoes.   She enjoyed her shopping yesterday because of the great offers.  She wanted to buy more but opted not to because she has other priorities, also she does not want to ruin her budget.  Too bad she did not tell me that she went to the mall, I should have bought some for myself too.  I am happy that she did not tell me though, I might spend the money I have intended for paying my internet bill. Wink*  I guess, I will wait for the perfect time to buy new wrist watch.
