Playing Catch Up (1) – Mama Sol’s Birthday
Posted November 7, 2008on:
The past weeks have been busy for me at the homefront with my youngest and me getting sick one after the other, like a tag-team of sorts. Then to add to that, we also had major movements and changes at work. Think, paperwork and tighter coordination among all groups.
To cut the chase, I’m posting pics of other events that happened in between. So this is part 1:
We got invited to Mama Sol’s (aunt’s) dinner party at the Marco Polo where we were served a fusion of Japanese, Italian, Chinese and native food. Yummm! However, the al fresco dinner was mildly rained on and prompted most of the guests to wear the table napkins on their heads ala “hat” party. Wehehe… I guess that was what caused me to get sick for a week. 😛
When the mild drizzle stopped, the dances began. One of the dance numbers was from a belly-dancer, to the men’s delight. As the music commenced, I threw side-glances at my teenage boys who seemed to enjoy the serpentine moves of the curvaceous dancer. Ah boys… My Papa Lalo (uncle) was regretful of the fact that he left his eyeglasses home! Haha! That was amusing and definitely good news for my Mama Sol!
Since it was a Tuesday, with work the following day (my sons were on school break), we left at about 930pm. That was when most of my uncle and aunt’s contemporaries started boogie-ing and chacha-ing the night away…
