Happy Birthday Lola

I had a great weekend - spending with time with my Doha family is always something to look forward for. Being with them in a simple gathering or celebration because a huge party - HAPPINESS! 
The plan was to have a picnic party to welcome the summer as well but unfortunately the weather didn't permit us to do so - its a rainy summer ang peg ng weather, ang ending its a PIZZA PASTA PARTY for Lola.

April 26, 2013 
Location:  Papa Johns at Al Muntazah (newly open)

Papa Johns here in Doha are known to have a colorful wall interior, one of the reason its cozy and usually their lights are not that bright, one thing that I really love. Their walls served us our back drop.

the bear is not PJ's property :) - endorser lang ang peg ni Mhaya
near the stairways
 So next time, if you want an instant back drop for your party, consider those restaurants or food chains with nice wall interiors.

Its a PIZZA PASTA Party so what to expect - there are pizzas and pasta! Having a pizza pasta party doesn't limit yourself to stick on the pizza and pasta alone, you can add salads, chicken, or sweets. There are some restaurants that allow you to bring extra food that is not on their list.

my new favorite pizza flavor- Special Chicken Ranch and all time favorite Cheese sticks

 i love this red velvet cake baked by my cousin Jep, till next party :)

   to balance, have some veggies on the plate...
So where's the pasta??? nakalimutan lang pong picturan ng solo..hehehe

Let me introduce you the birthday girl whom we called "LOLA"
Meet Tita Sylvia, she's the second to the last sibling of Mommy, the youngest female sibling. I owe a lot to her, because of her I'm here in Doha, actually "all of us" - Doha Family. Ever since I lived and worked here in Doha, Tita stands as my second mom, my guardian and a friend to all of us, her nieces and nephews. Compare to the "traditional" aunties of here age, here some of the traits that made Tita one in a million:
- she loves chandelier, dangling and big earrings
- she doesn't mind to wear minis and backless dress (pero inside the house lang naman or else CID ang peg nya)
- she carries her red crowning glory in style, no one can as she did
- she is loud and bold when it comes to her outfits, tinalo si vice-ganda sa mga striking top and pants nya.
- she is really kikay and bubbly
- she can still swing and sing, "gangnam" style is the last dance craze she did, how about "gwayomi" kaya


May all your heart's desires be granted and your plans be fulfilled according to the God's will. Continue to be a blessing to others and don't be tired of serving the Lord. Tita you've been an inspiration to me on whatever ministry I have in God's house right now, and I want to say thank you so much for inspiring me and I know a lot of people. The Lord give you more birthdays to come and healthy body so you can still continue to serve Him and enjoy life with your family and loved ones.

But hey what is this???
Lola its a NO for you....
But since its your birthday sige na pwede na ...

We're almost complete!
Since we moved separately from Lolo't Lola's house halos di na kami nakukumpleto sa mga occasion parang Christmas na lang yata, kaya naman its like a reunion for us if may mga family gatherings, kahit gaano kasimple pa man, enjoy talaga kami.
We are family - BIG HAPPY BLESSED!
Thank you Lord for giving me my Doha Family.
 Balita's Family - my Tita Sylvia's family

 with the girls....but why Mhaya is included?
may nakikigulo na naman sa picture gusto rin yata maging kapamilya,hahaha

Family is always the BEST!
No matter how simple the celebration as long you celebrate it with them ay wagas na wagas talaga - sa kainan, tawanan, kulitan, kwentuhan, at sa saya!
Till next time kapamilya!
God bless us all
