So… Am I a drunkard now? Nah… Just wanting to spice up my life. Ha! :p

The 7th birthday party of Zane Matthew (A’s son) turned into “oldies” soiree! As usual, I was oblivious about the details of the affair. Shhhhh… my attire was kinda out of place. Anyhow, I did manage to pull it off. Thanks to the Lia Sophia bling-bling. I must admit, it did give a “classy” impact on my chic rocker (a.k.a. rakista) babe look.    Come on Chris W., I know you agree. 😉

chillaxin!

cutee 🙂

The after party left a feeling of deja vu! (click here to read related article -> “paralyzer”). I think, I should change my name from “the curious me” to “the clueless me”? The after party was held in A’s residence. It was lightened up by her gorgeous “Pakistani” daughter, S. Whoa! S is so fond of Pakistan and sure has a talent in mimicking the Pakistani accent (no pun intended). She’s totally amazing!

In no time, the tequilla (+ bacardi) session started rolling! And what do you know, the topic was directed to my single status!  It can’t be helped… they all have partners and I was the “lonesome” spinster in the group. Ha! All I can say is, most of the time, it pays to enjoy “singleblessedness” before converting to “couple trouble” status.   (click here to read related article -> wedding)

Thank goodness! The hoopla about my single status got diverted when they all started doing the videoke. Filipinos love to sing and can definitely carry a tune more than anyone else in the whole Universe (Ignore me. It’s innate for me to be patriotic!  ). And Ellen DeGeneres surely  agreed! :p

However, there’s always an exemption. I’m one of them.  I can do some “jiggy moves” but I can’t really sing (click here to read related article -> “singing”). It drives me nuts! Arghhhh! :p

Conclusion:
Tequilla + Videoke + Light Bantering + Excellent Company = Super Duper Mega Over Stress Free Night!!!

Love it!!!!!!!!

P.S. I love tequilla! Promise!

winter party!

If there’s a summer party  (click here to read the summer party article), there’s a winter (Christmas) party!!! Woot! 😀

VendAstians’  donned their western attire and headed straight to Champetre County to celebrate  Christmas!  Several activities were planned by the social committee to keep the grown ups busy. It was definitely a fun filled evening!

Hush hush…. an after party was held in one of the Executives house!  Rock and roll!!!

Can’t wait for the next party! Wohooo!

atta kids!

My nephew, James, birthday party just ended. And we, the “old folks”, shared hearty laughter with regards to their funny antics. Check this out:

 Ysa (3-year old kid)

Cheska & Ysa

Ysa: Do you wanna slide?

Cheska: Yes.
(Cheska is roughly 12 – 13 years old)

Ysa: I’ll catch you!

We were not able to control our laughters because Ysa is so tiny while Cheska is very tall.

Jedd (7-year old kid)

Jedd

Jedd: Dad, I broke the TV.

Dad: This is the second time Jedd!

Jedd: Don’t worry, I can pay for that Dad. How much is it?

Dad: $500

Jedd: Is it including tax?

A 7-year old kid is very much aware about tax ey?

James  (7-year old kid)

James

James: Tita, what’s your birthday gift for me?

Me: What do you want James?

James: Don’t give me money, I have lots of money.

Me: Why do you need a gift then?

Then he just ran off.  I ended up giving him an Apple magic mouse for his new MacBook Pro! Ha!

Gotta snooze now. I’m absolutely bone-weary. See ya laytah! 😉

summer party!

The VendAsta summer party was held in our CEO’s place yesterday (Friday, July 15th 2011). It was warm and majority of my colleagues were soaking under the sun. At first, I also did some sunbathing but after few minutes, I could no longer stand it. Tiffany, one of my colleagues, was smiling when she saw me covering my arms with my jacket.

I’m one of those typical Asians who don’t like to get so dark. I’m already contented with my natural “morena” (a.k.a. “tan”) skin. I understand most “white” people want to be “brown” and most “brown” people want to be “white”. It’s one of life’s enigma.

Some were not present because of their scheduled holiday. It would have been more fun if the attendance were complete. Anyway, I was planning to have a photo with all of my colleagues but I just managed to do it with a few of them. Either I was too shy to approach the bigwigs or I was just too occupied hiding from the sun and at the same time, making sure I don’t miss the fun stuff.

Most of my colleagues brought with them their partners and children. Since I did not bring anyone with me, I just hopped from one area to the other. I even played with Jack (see related article about Jack) and Elaine, the two cute kids.

The highlight of the party was the pool race. All participants were excellent swimmers! Ches was the champion last year but it was capsized by Dale this year. I was planning to join the trampoline competition but the event did not pushed through.

Few drinks made me tipsy and sleepy. I drank one lemon beer (yes, lemon beer!), and two glasses of mixed drinks concocted by Blair. He experimented it so I named it, Blair Shoe Box drinks. Ha!

The Blair Shoe Box drinks turned my lips into orange in which I only learned about it when Nathan pointed it out to me. The drinks tasted like an iced tea and I was still “sober” when I was at the party but when I got home, I felt the effect of the drinks. Boy, I was really dizzy but I did not puke. And no hangover! I love it! 😀

In total, the party was a success!  I’m looking forward to more fun moments and hopefully, by Christmas, I will be able to bring someone with me. Hmmm…

P.S. I can’t believe I finished this entry in less than 20 minutes. I’ve been writing half-hearted articles for the past few days (sorry!). I’m glad the momentum is back!
