Saturday, May 2, 2009


Before I ended my March blog, I specifically said April will deliver big time. As expected, it did. It held our family’s event of the year, which I think won’t be topped by anything soon. And our office summer get-together transpired within the month that jumpstarted several epiphanies.

The days leading to the start of the month, I promised I’d record every moment worthy to be included in my monthly recaps but I should have known better than to trust myself with such responsibility. Again, I know I’m missing some events that I attended but then they must have been sucky for me to forget them! So without further adieu, I present to you the best month so far of 2009.

April 2, 2009 | Hannah’s 18th Birthday Dinner
This day makes it official…Hannah is of legal age. Scary! I was actually already comprehensive when she was born so that means Father Time’s has his eyes one me now. Intimate family dinner and the chocolate cake that night was totally awesome; all digested after several walks around the village.

April 4, 2009 | Hannah’s 18th
Said it before, saying it again…this was the Ventura’s Event of the Year. How could it not be? We were all dressed up (even Ninong) to celebrate Hannah’s debut at Dusit Hotel. Program was great, food was great, the guests were great, her friends are awesome, so I guess the only word to describe this one is…awesome!

April 6, 2009 | Family Day at Trinoma
Last month, I mentioned that it was my father’s birthday but we did not meet up or did anything to honor that day. This was the day that changes that. Trinoma kinda sucked though. It was really far and not conducive to those who lack sleep. Eat-All-You-Can at Cabalen highlights this day.

April 10, 2009 | Black Saturday Street Foods
Okay, the occasion actually fell the day before this one, Good Friday. But as our bosses are minions of the man downstairs because they do not honor Holy Week, I wasn’t able to attend the annual Siete Palabras (7 Last Words). Picked up Iya though and they served kwek-kwek (egg fritters) and fish & squid balls whilst we used fondue sticks for dinner.

April 17, 2009 | Uncle’s 50th Birthday Dinner
Who would’ve thought siomai and a barrel of KFC’s original recipe chicken will make the absolute perfect dinner combination?! These people really know how to throw a dinner party. Uncle is golden…solid!

April 18, 2009 | T&C Summer Partehy
Close to two months in the making, our so-called “outing” turns out to be a party instead. Well, we can’t really object and we were so close to not going. But gotta hand it to our superiors for making a good case. Good food, fresh drinks, bitchin music, one wild boss sums up the night.

April 19, 2009 | Uncle’s 50th Birthday Celebration
If the night before didn’t deliver much, then it’s a good thing that Uncle decided to throw a major party for the family at our clubhouse. Oh yeah, Spanish menu was served and free-flowing beer, makings of a great party. We actually made an AVP for him, which he actually enjoyed. LOL!

April 27, 2009 | Fast & Furious
It was eight years since the first film came out, it is only fitting that I watch the movie that brought all of them back together. I almost missed this one because theaters nowadays pull out movies after two weeks or so. Whew! Movie was great, not as “whoa” like the first installment but it’s worth it.

Something tells me I’m forgetting something. Damn it! What and when it could it be? If it comes up, I shall include it.

Shoutout of Happy Birthdays to: Hannah, Uncle Alex, Heidi, Lola Des, Tita Cookie, Reg, Tita Odoy, Tita Ginny, Kevs, Cyrus, Ralph, Lawrence, Ter, Jay-M and Aries.

The one event that I missed was Kevs’ Tabu Bar birthday session as it fell on the same night as Uncle’s dinner party. In the 15 years or so that we knew each other, this is actually the first time he invited me to his birthday party, so I really am sorry and disheartened that I wasn’t able to go.

May, I don’t know about May. I’m sure it will hold some crazy nights and maybe even an outing or two. But I always hated rainy season and May marks its start. The annual MeanBoys summer getaway is schedule in the first week of May but due to avoidable circumstances, it was moved to God-knows-when. Bah!

April also presented a lot of surprises. I appreciated hip-hop this month and actually preferred dancing to singing. All thanks to Hannah’s debut. But what’s really surprising? First, well it’s not really a surprise and I kinda expected it but I wouldn’t know its impact would be that epical. Secondly, now the second was a surprise. Who would have thought it was still possible? Is it good news? We’ll find out in May. (--,)
