Hard on the outside. Soft on the inside.


2010 Miriam High School Family Day

The first event of the year for us is the 2010 Miriam High School Family Day held this morning at MCHS 2/F Cafetorium with the theme “Batch Friends Forever”.

Registration started at 8:00AM followed by a Holy Mass officiated by Fr. Jesus Ritchie Santos, SDB. The highlight of the activity is the Amazing Race. But for me, like the usual stage mother that I am, Chanel’s band playing was my most awaited activity.

May I present PARALLEL MOTION ….


At the end of it all, I went home a proud mom.

(Shhhhh …. even though I know the last song was not really good. :D )?

2009 Family Christmas Party

This year’s Family Christmas party was more organized.  Held at the usual family party place at May St., the family members arrived wearing clothes of  their assigned color. Color-coding baga. This was for the purpose of easily identifying to which family one belongs to and for photo purposes.

The highlight of the party was the group presentation. Ideally, the presentation should be on a per family basis. But some of my cousins have formed a group mostly consisting of the young generation.

It was so much fun that night.

Here are the group presentation:

Group 1 – Weng’s Group

Group 2 – Shaun’s Group

Group 3 – Tito Jhonny & Kids

Group 4 – Dela Cruz Family

Group 5 - Pumkin’s Group

Group 6 – Aman’s Group

Aman’s group won as the 2009 Champion.   We expect that next year would be as fun if not better than what we had this time.

And of course, the photos:

2009 EALC Christmas Concert

A Christmas Concert was organized by EALC as a fund raising project for the benefit of Children’s Joy Foundation.

It was so awesome to watch all these small children in their costumes participate in such meaningful event.

Here’s the Junior Nursery with their Wonderful Christmas Time

And together with the students from other  EALC schools, here’s Give Love On Christmas Day

Happy Golden Year!

It has long been planned by Katrina — a surprise birthday party for Mama Cheng,

With the help of Tita Regie, everything was organized.

There held yesterday December 3,2009 a lunch party at the Atrium of ECJ Condominium in Intramuros.

A small program and a simple party was held to celebrate the 50th birthday attended by the whole FCPI family and Tita Cheng’s closest friends.

All the while, she thought that this party is everything. She’s happy at any rate.

What she didn’t know was that something bigger was prepared in the evening.

Everyone left the office early to be at Celsius for the set up. We waited at the 2nd floor balcony for Tita Cheng and family to arrive. Everyone was holding confetti for the “surprise!” shout out.

It so happened just across Celsius is  a native restaurant serving bulalo, sisig, tapsilog, etc…

Katrina led the group to this restaurant and there Tita Cheng couldn’t believe that they’re going to eat in such restaurant for a big occasion.

” Dito? Dito talaga tayo kakain? ” was heard from Tita Cheng

As Katrina had already sensed the disappointment from her Mama Cheng, she led her outside in front of Celsius.

And at a cue, lights went on, everyone stood up and greeted “Surprise! Happy birthday Mam Cheng!”

A big laugh was heard from the celebrant.  She was genuinely surprised.

More friends of Tita Cheng came aside from the usual  family and office staff.  Kevin, who’s in Florida at this time for his internship may have missed the party but he prepared a video message for his Mama Cheng inserted on the AVP created by Katrina.

The surprise party was a success.

Tita Cheng have celebrated her golden year in such a memorable fashion.
