“The secret to happiness is to embrace and appreciate everything that happens in your life. Take life easy and count your blessing… “
Planning for a birthday party is never an easy task. There are many things to consider and prepare for and since I’ve been flying a lot and I’m not based in Manila I handed over all the obligations to my sister Alma, besides from being an HRM college professor, she’s also a well-experienced event planner in fact she’s one of the coordinator of my 18th birthday held at Coconut Palace it was the biggest & grandest celebration I ever had!
Some 25 year olds might be thinking that they want their party to be a little more grown-up but I want my party to be close to my personality. Jolly, lively & Happy. So we’ve conceptualized to make my profession as my theme for the party. Flight Attendants, Boarding pass invitations, Airplanes, Check-in Counter, and Baggage Counter – An Airport aura!
It was held in Shangri-la Restaurant at West Ave. QC. The party started around 7:30 pm. It started with a song number “Beautiful Girl” by Jose Mari Chan. (It was a nice classic love song. I really like songs that make me feel serenaded that’s why most of my favorite songs are sung by male artists.) Since I don’t have an escort/partner or whatever you wanna call it, hehe! My 16yrs old brother came to the stage to dance me! “Tawa tuloy ako ng tawa sa stage kasi sabi ko wag na ako isayaw magmumukang JS Prom ang party! Hahaha!”
I actually have no idea what’s in the program so everything is a surprise for me! I felt like a guest to my own party! Hehe! My sister didn’t even bother to tell me at least the sequence of the things that’s going to happen! At one point I was busy table hopping then I’ll just hear the host calling my name and believe it or not I haven’t watch the AVP until it was played during my birthday itself! But credits to Ingrid Cabrido for the well edited video presentation.
After the AVP, another song rendered by the singer/host from Abs-Cbn’s Singing Bee – Christopher Cose, entitled “How did you Know” (I never get tired of listening to this song everyday!) from what I remember, the chinese cuisines main course are already being served at this time.
There’s more… there’s also a game! Mechanics are very easy, You must be able to say “Would you like Chicken or Beef” after drinking a pure calamansi extract! Most of the participants are the 4 pretty attendants during my birthday! They are the one in-charge in the registration/check in counter and lead guests to their seats. (I forgot to thank them during my speech (my apologies) pero super thanks talaga sa efforts. I’ll tell Alma to give you all a hundred score sa exam! Hehe Joke!)
It was all good. Very worth it…I won’t mention any names na to avoid tampuhan, but thanks sa lahat ng pumunta you made it more special than it already was…THANKS for flying with me…
Once upon a time in 1985. It was around 7 in the morning, the 25th day of January. A young, healthy baby girl was destined to be born. The little angels name is Estrellita, which means “Little Star” in Spanish, thus they’ve given Star as her nickname. Everyone was rejoicing for the birth of the young princess. Now, almost 25 years have passed, all grown up, Int’l Flight Attendant & God-fearing..
“People making lists, buying special gifts, It’s a time to be kind to one and all It’s that time of year when good friends are dear And you wish you could give more Than just presents from a store.”
BER months means the holiday season is here and Christmas is just around the corner. Even some friends of mine started anticipating the start of the BER months very early and we are greeting each other Merry Christmas! I love the holidays and the joy it brings. Always remember that Jesus Christ is the reason for the season and he is the epitome of true love… I wish everyone a Merry Christmas! God bless us all.
I’ll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas If only in my dreams
November Roster gave me 4 Manila flights – This month of December I have 3! Yehey! Such a Good News!
I really cried when I saw my December Roster because it’s what I’ve been praying for (Tears of Joy!) – to spend Christmas with my family and fortunately, I have flight to Manila on 24-25th! Just in time for Noche Buena. Further more, I’ll also be in Manila on my Mom’s Birthday on 27-28th! God is so good! I’m so thankful for all the blessings!

For the past 3 years I’ve been spending Christmas in-flight.. Finally, God answered my prayers, I’ll be home for Christmas…
When: September 20′ 2009
Who: Michelle (Jero’s Cousin)
Where: 27th Floor Diamond Hotel
How: I had a 24 hours Layover in Manila stayed at Diamond Hotel along Roxas Blvd… Coincidentally, the wedding venue was also there!
Near the end of the event comes the bouquet-tossing ceremony, in which the bride tosses a bouquet of flowers to the single ladies (They changed the concept though) there is also a garter ceremony, in which the groom shoots the bride’s garter to the bachelors. To make the story short, Jero & I were the winning pair!
