This will be a very busy weekend for Yona and Mommy as we have 3 events to attend to this weekend. I don’t understand why I let my daughter go through this Halloween thingy but for the sake of fun, heck Go na rin ang Ina.
On Saturday we will attend the Halloween Trick or Treat of SPi, my former office. Hubby’s still there as well as my friends so I am obligated to attend the event. I dreaded the moment I step on that building but that leaves me no choice.
This was her costume last year, a cute vietnamese silk cheongsam from Ninang Gertee, yeah it’s authentic from Vietnam.
Now, she’ll be a fairy. I would have wanted her to wear something extraordinary but I hate to compromise her comfort. I don’t want her to wear something that’s isn’t her. Yona spells pink and purples so a good fairy would be perfect! It should have been more halloweeny, scary but it’s soooo not Yona hahaha so slash the idea of the “bitch fairy” that came to life.
I just hope that like last year she would still enjoy the activities that the office will prepare. But I bet she’d be more thrilled since she could now comprehend the real meaning of merriment.
You see, this isn’t about tradition or being patriotic to the western culture but more of acceptance that this borrowed event brings joy to each kid that joins.
On Sunday we will be in KidsAhoy for arts and crafts. I love bringing Yona to KidsAhoy, there she enjoys just playing with blocks and goofing around. It’s like having gymboree but with a close knit relationship with the owner. I love you Joanne and CJ!
Right after that we will go to her cousin Xam’s house to celebrate Xam’s 3rd birthday.
And this very morning we received a personal invite from Zharine of Kidstime for the launching of Kidstime Magazine. The launch is scheduled on Sunday, 3PM. Heck, we can’t attend of course. That would mean killing ourselves with stress.
So that’s it for this weekend but more Halloween events before November 1!
