Hello Kitty Party Theme at Jollibee

Five years ago, we celebrated my son's 1st birthday at Jollibee. Now, as my daughter turns 1, we also chose to celebrate at the same venue. We had Hello Kitty party theme for this cutey baby:

We arrived at exactly 4pm as scheduled, I was a bit disappointed to know that the crew were not yet ready to start for the alloted time. The celebrant's name wasn't even pinned at the tarp. I was expecting for the guests book that supposed to be signed at the entrance, so as to accurately count the number of visitors that joined us, but they informed me that there wasn't any (unlike 5 years ago!). Oh well, another disappointment that  simply can be ignored.

But, I almost loose my cool when a crew informed me that the Hello Kitty favors wasn't delivered right on time that is why we can only have 5 Hello Kitty loot bags, and the rest will be Jollitown theme for the girls.

Oookay... I just tried to understand that this is another effect of Jollibee's costly IT problem, their system migration from oracle to SAP, resulting to issues with inventory and supplies delivery. Thankful na lang atleast hindi kami na #ChikenSad that day.

So, moved on part... we started 45min. late from the schedule (sigh). Still, I don't want to ruin my party mode for this moment  so I just smiled as my brother in-law informed me about misunderstanding regarding gate pass for photobooth's equipments that cause delayed set-up.

Smile, little princess!
Adorable Hello Kitty back-drop.
12 x 12 chocolate cake by Red Ribbon.
I chose to add  only Twirlie and Hetty. Each additional mascot appearance costs 1,000. So, they're good enough =)
Ang cute ni Jobee sa mga photo opp, I love this one with Kuya.
And, she's officially 1!
Hello Kitty party hats, F na F ng mga girls.
The much awaited loot bags were distributed.

Change outfit =P

It was fun partying with Jollibee! The kids appreciated it much from games, prizes and lootbags.

A friend asked me the costs of a Jollibee party for 100 pax including kids. So here's a complete list of food and miscellaneous fees we paid, incase you want to compare with other party packages. Reservation fee is 3,000 pesos, I decided not to book online since we always dropped by at the mall.

Party Fee                - 1,250
Lighting                  -    200
Add'l mascots        - 2,000
Party Favors          - 2,000  
Cake                         - 1,100
                             =    6,550
Adults (I chose to create my own package)
191.00 x 70pax  =      13,370
70 regular coke      
70 chocolate sundae
70 1-pc. Chicken joy w/ spaghetti
70 regular fries

Kids (Food Package A)
133.00 x 30pax =        3,990
30 spaghetti
30 regular fries
30 regular coke
30 chocolate sundae

In our case, we have 4 additional orders: 191.00 x 4 = 764.00

TOTAL = 24,674 (worth it na rin, considering less work for all the preparation).

Thank you all for coming =D

Opening gifts with lola mama's help. The mini sofa is a gift from Jollibee.

Alright! 1 party down. Five months to go for the next birthday celebration (kuya turns 7!) as early as now, I am doing my hunt for affordable party packages/ caterers, clown/ magician/ performers that will make up a fun party for kiddos.

Refund Process for PLDT's Last Home Stand ticket holders

Last night, husband went home disappointed when the 5-on-5 game between Gilas Pilipinas and Fibr All-Stars was, as advised by IGW to PLDT, not allowed by the NBA.

You know, the feeling when you are expecting something big to happen right in front of you, excited and patiently waited, thinking it's worthy to spend your time, effort and money but instead went all to waste?

K5 Learning Review Announcement

After almost a week of Class suspension due to typhoon 'Glenda', today's classes in all levels were suspended again due to expected bad weather from the southwest monsoon enhanced by typhoon 'Henry'. This means more play time for my 1st grader, who join the group of students who were delighted to hear the 'good news'. 

I know there's a lot he can learn while playing but at times like these, I want him to practice more on math and reading skills. That is why I joined  K5's personalized online learning program to  help build study habits and skills he needed to be able to work independently.

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students. I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program. If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their open invitation to write an online learning review of their program.

After my trial period, I will be giving an honest review of this program to see how it works for this little guy:

Art Work Using Nendo Polymer Clay

After my hand-sewn dress project for my baby Girl, making a no-sew tutu skirt comes next. But before I can even get my hands on tulle that I bought from divi, this 'clay art thing' caught my attention and was eager to try hand crafting using polymer clay.

As a beginner in this craft, I was a little surprised on how time consuming it turned out to be. I watched youtube tutorials on making chibis and simple creations and it took them less than an hour to finish their art work, mine took 4 hours of trial and error. Well I guess that was pretty normal, I need to learn more designing techniques to came up with a much more smooth-finished clay works.

Darth Maul Kid's Halloween Costume

Days goes by super fast! (next week would be my B's first day in Grade school) and before another halloween comes, let me share this Darth Maul Costume I purchased online for last year's Halloween Party.

I almost forgot to make a post about this one. I just saw from my widget the post about my rant on Customs Duties and Taxes that comes along with this purchase, only then I recalled that I totally forgot bragging about this costume, or maybe I'm still in hate that I got scammed by our own government; making me pay for unreasonable fees.

Anyway, there's no way I can undo that unjust experience. So I'll just savor my B's captured moments during Halloween Celebration at my former office and Costume day at school.

'Kunyaring pakipot' sa pagsukat ng costume! but you can clearly see how this little guy felt during costume fitting. Soooo excited and happy.

Mommy thoughts

Hi! This is a post saying I never really abandoned this dear blog of mine. Just a little busy (yah, kaunti lang...) with the kids and the most of the time messy and chaotic home.

I am completely living a different life from before, making my kids be my only priority, forgetting being in the corporate world (or should I say corporate slave?) and thankfully being out of work-related stress.

Summer lovin' with baby B and baby G
(as in my Boy and Girl).

Going back, I came up with "Mommy tots" when B was only 2 years of age. I end up with 'tots' which I meant 'thoughts' as this became my online journal of my thoughts as a mother and anything worth blogging. But since G was born, this can be as it is, 'tots' for I am now a mommy of 2, where I personally referring the word tots as kids (B wasn't a toddler anymore while G was still months away from her 1st birthday).

And now the ultimate goal is to spend more time with these tots. Here's my favorite quote as  for this moment:

A good reminder to myself that I didn't make a wrong decision.
