I was so busy the whole month of December that's why I did have the time to do my recap for the month of November.. so here's both November & December 2012 recaps :)
YABU date with Maro & Talitha
Went to the office of Mayor Benhur Abalos with my mom & Bene and asked for his help with GYA Peeps' Christmas project.
Then went to Dr. Lopez' clinic in Cardinal Santos Medical Center for the removal of the stitches on my right toe.
And went to Orange Peel Skin Clinic wth Maro & Talitha and had a facial.
The first person who replied to my letter/email when I asked for help with "A GYA Christmas Feast for the Kids" was Sir Jean Henri Lhuillier; n less than an hour. Thank you po.
I also got to meet the Philippines Men's Softball Team
Breaking Dawn Part 2 at Greenhills Promenade with the GYA Peeps
Dinner with Lea, Madie, Pau + Talitha at 1521 in Burgos Circle then unli-margarita / mojito at Agave in Bonifacio Highstreet. Mango shake for me. Weeeh? :P
We (my mom, dad & I) were invited at the15th Anniversary Party of Med-el Philippines that held in Centris, QC. Zoe Oabel & Zyrene Fernandez both won a CI device.. Yey! I'm SUPER happy for them. I also got to meet Sharlene Morta - the talented (balerina) girl who was also featured in Che Che Lazaro Presents: Binubuong Pangarap.
Attended the Lupus Club Christmas Party, which was held in PGH.
Christmas dinner with Lea, Madie, Pau + Dra. Leslyne, + Talitha MClinAud. Exchange gifts. Agave. Unlimited Margarita. Mojito & Nachos again plus super unlimited chikahan. It was also Kokie's birthday and although she's miles away, we didn't forget to make her day extra special.
Mondate with Talitha. 15-minute Lunch at Cajun. Christmas gifts shopping.
Went to Med-El office in Alabag to have my CI checked then went to ATC & Megamall with my mom & Tito Jim.
Whenever I participate in my mom's Lupus club event, I can’t help but get a little bit envious – hoping that our Neurofibromatosis (NF) group can also have an event like that as well. And finally, after 2 years of planning and anticipating, my NF Friends and I had our 1st ever NFF Christmas party last December 15 at Tita Nani's home in Magallanes, Makati.
You can read about it here.
Went to Puregold in Shaw Blvd with Talitha & Michelle & bought boxes of groceries for the "GYA Christmas". Jerome followed. Lunch at Moshi Moshi. It suddenly rained really had but we're lucky because Ace Luck taxi brought us & the goodies home.
Final Christmas shopping with Maro & Talitha at Shangrila. Lunch at Sumo Sam with Katren Banix.
Congratulations "Teacher Michelle" party with the peeps because she passed the September Licensure Exam for Teachers.
GYA Christmas is officially back!
"My childhood friends called the GYA Peeps and I successfully brought the Christmas spirit back in our community after seven years. We realized that we have to continue the Christmas party tradition started by my uncle and grandfather in the early 70’s. With the help of a couple of cheerful givers like the PJ Lhuillier and Office of the Mayor of Mandaluyong City, we were able to bring joy to more than 150 kids. We instilled in them the true essence of the season and showed them how to live their childhood life to the fullest. Just by seeing their happy faces, we were reminded of how great it feels to reach out and bring happiness to kids." - Celebrating friendships and reviving traditions in 2012
Breakfast at 9 am and then followed by games - traditional pinoy games.
Party in the afternoon until around 7pm. Clowns. Games. Prizes. Raffle. Foods & Drinks. Balloons. Gifts for everyone.
The camera rolled again before the year ended. Shoot an interview for GMA's upcoming show, Indio. It's for the special premiere, i think. It's going to be aired on January 13, Sunday though we still don't know what time it is.
Jonalyn, my neighbor NF Friend was also interviewed.
It was also GYA Peeps' Annual Yer-End dinner at Yakimix in Podium.
Post Christmas Get-Together with the Lopezzz
After the Christmas for the kids, we also revived the New Year’s Eve party within our compound, which we, the GYA Peeps, grew up to. It's one of the many reasons why we, the GYA Peeps, bonded and became closer together and it's time for the younger generation to have the same kind close-knit friendship like we have.
*sigh* I can now say my official goodbye to 2012. I won't be doing monthly recaps anymore instead, I will try to blog more often. Try? Okay, I WILL. ;)
