A very Long Happy Weekend!

Our weekend started with the 1st birthday party of my inaanak Angela in their house then followed by a late night booze with the QAFAC family group in Ninong Yam’s house. All the dads were in a mood for a drink and singing galore. This time nobody got tipsy and the party ended at 2 in the morning but the problem was we can’t go home, our car was sandwiched with two other cars. Thanks to the rude owners of the other cars who purposedly parked close to the rear and nose of our car. It’s wee hours so we had no choice but to leave our car there and let Dad Yam drive us to our house.

We woke up very late the following day and went only to Lander’s place with Ninay Jinky for ate Andre’s Cinderella gown. I did not buy the C gown in Marks and Spencer. I was not satisfied it seems that there’s something lacking with it so I decided to just find somebody to make it. And the timing is perfect Ate Shey will be having her 7th birthday and they know the perfect guy who makes best gowns in weddings and other celebrations.

Ate Andrea and Ate Shey insisted of going to KFC and we ended up there. They played for awhile including Sean.

And our Saturday was very exciting yet tiring. We started our day at 5:30 am we woke up very early because we had a schedule, it was a swimming day in Intercon Hotel. Ate Princess was very happy as well as Sean. They met a 19 months old Aussy boy in the kiddie pool. They played a lot. The smile in Sean’s face, the happiness of Ate Andrea are so overwhelming. They kept on thanking Mom May for inviting us there. And thanks to Bima too. Our names are still in the system and we still have 35% discount on membership fee, so we’ll think about joining the health club there again.

Lunchtime was spent in another friend’s house. Kuya Edgar asked STR to fix two old computers so there. Together with Mom May and Dad Yam we went to Kuya Edgar’s house. Kuya Edgar cooked sinigang na hipon, it’s so yummy with some kangkong vegies and the fried hammour (lapu-lapu), the sweet watermelon and they have cake. STR finished fixing the computers nearly 5 pm so three families proceeded to Villagio Mall for our groceries and some window shopping. And we were home at 8 in the evening. Everybody went straight to bed after changing clothes and I woke up and remembered that I still have to call my bosom friend who happens to be back here in Doha from a long vacation.

Wedding Dinner Party

Last Sunday night we went to Rachell and Clint’s wedding dinner party in Great Wall of China Restaurant. Ninay Rachell is the godmother of Sean Linus and a sweet and thoughtful friend. We met Rachell when I was pregnant with Sean and she’s the ultrasound technologist in QP Clinic.

 She was so accommodating that I opted to make an appointment for the ultrasound parallel to her schedule so that she’s the one who’ll do it and not the other guy who happens to be of another nationality. Its not that I don’t want other nationalities (I have nothing against them) but I have this feeling of being taken cared of, the TLC of a kabayan rather than other nationalities in QP Clinic who doesn’t care if they are hurting you already or just that they are like that, callous and unmindful of other’s emotions. And it goes the same way regarding the health of my kids if they get sick we prefer a kabayan doctor and have a second opinion from my hubby’s brother and sis in law.

So that’s how our friendship started and I can still hear Rachell’s words…”Ay! Lalaki ang baby nyo! Ang haba ng legs nya at my lawit!”  And from there on we definitely knew that our second baby is a boy. Our friendship flourished and we asked her together with my hubby who happen to be there with me during my 2nd ultrasound to be a godmother of our baby boy. She’s so sweet as a ninang that she always asks how her inaanak is doing.

Best wishes to you Ninay Rachell and Ninong Clint!!!

The best part of having a dinner in Great Wall of China Restaurant is the yummy buchi. That’s what I always look forward to in dining in this resto.
