May, what have you done?

For the past few years, May has been a lucky month for me. Almost all the wonderful things happen everyday - that's what i really believe. But i guess not this time, or should i say it happens the other way around. Not too good at all but well, there's still other things to be cheerful about.

Mother's Day
It has been a busy day, we celebrated this special day at late dinner. I plan to bake a cake yet i don't have much baking supplies to achieve a very nice cake. (A perfect excuse for a lazy me..muhaha!) so i ordered few cupcakes instead. It came late at night as well since my aunt whose supposed to pick it up had been caught up in a very long traffic. Hey, I love the kawaii-looking box and the cute light pink ribbon. I'm keeping it till now. I had a fixation in keeping cute things and those with sentimental values, i can't just throw it away even it's a simple straw or a torn tissue with a sweet message in it, stuffs like that.

Another pasalubong from my aunt who went to Bolinao, Pangasinan. Its a special Tupig! Well not really special but any tupig is special for me.

I first tasted this delicacy last time when i went to Hundred Islands and had started to like it since then.

Nephew's Birthday
It was a less than a month preparation so all of it was a huge rush. I made some party props and table design. It's not really a grand party, just a simple royalish themed celebration. Yet it could had been more even better if we're not in the budget lane. Aww.  Anyway, I enjoyed preparing the lootbags the most, it's the time when i can eat a lot of candies while i'm packing them..haha! We had the 7's categories - 7 Dances, 7 Balloons,
7 Treasures, 7 Wishes so it was really quite a lot of fun especially for the kids.

This was the half preview of the hard work in the props and everything.  It was still a little messed up though. There's still more on the other side. The venue table was not big enough for all the lootbags that we need to put some on the back side and just some in front.

For the fabulous cake, I spent a few hours searching online, sending inquiries and all.  Luckily i found MilCakes which has a really creative, wow-looking cake designs at an affordable cost. The cake was absolutely wonderful. We haven't sliced it until midnight. Sadly, the crown broke already when we got home i guess it wasn't handed carefully whoever put it in the car. Grrr I could have preserved it a bit longer.. mehehe!

All the kids enjoyed especially the celebrant. That's what's really important in a kid's party, isn't it? The rest is history. Achieved the royal look eh?

Hey, i wouldn't miss the day without having a bunch of selfies..Here's the top pick. Ohh.. that's out of 100+ shots muhahaha! I hope i was joking. Hah! Anyway, I hope one of these days i would be better again.Till next!
