What would this world be without your vibrance?
This household without your tenderness?
This family sans your devotion?
Me in the absence of your affection?

You’ve got more than character
You’ve got verve, got candor
You don’t do ordinary, boring love
It’s either silent love or tough love

I’ve grown to be stubborn and spunky
So much so that at times I fight even Mommy
And for that, I’ll never stop apologizing
Selfless, you deserve no less than a child so revering

But I could also be laidback and funny
Able to carry myself around uncaringly
Others never let their kids go un-chaperoned
But you let me do my thing, look after my own

They would think you don't pay attention
Truth is I've become my best version
All because you never confined your child to rust
The greatest yield of our maternal bond is trust

What would this world be without your vibrance?
This household without your tenderness?
This family sans your devotion?
Me in the absence of your affection?

Happy birthday, Mommy!

Family Christmas: 2016 Christmas Photo Dump No. 4

December 25, 2016 | Sunday

Here’s to the most eventful Christmas day I’ve had with #TheRimases to date!
I had fun enduring each other’s noise, taking photos for memory keeping’s sake, exchanging gifts with them for the first time, playing (and winning) bingo (which was total madness btw), devouring potluck dishes, and munching on some leftovers after every game.
It may not be that obvious, BUT I TRULY AND SINCERELY LOVE MY FAMILY! :)
Happy New Year again!

Friendsgiving: 2016 Christmas Photo Dump No. 3

December 17, 2016 | Saturday

Tastes Around the World was the chosen theme of our batch for this year’s Friendsgiving! From decorations to games to food, we have all made sure to follow it.
There were kids! Many of them! What was funny was how the kids who were supposed to be the cause of noise were the ones who were actually deafened many times by the shouting, cheering, stomping, and clapping of the supposed adults. Hahaha! Sorry, kiddos!
Props to Nhika Marfil and Sarah Danao not just for putting up this yearend party together for all of us but for also planning and organizing all the other events and beach trips of the past year. They did so well! We benefited! Harhar! Thanks, guys!
Good luck to our 2017 planners: Antoniette and Joeyleen! You go, guys!

Happy New Year!

HSD Departmental Party: 2016 Christmas Photo Dump No. 2

December 14, 2016 | Wednesday
This party had been something I was able to also get my hands on to. Preparation was a little last minute, but the result was nice. Everyone went home with hands full of gifts and hearts filled with much laughter and lightness.  Everybody was happy!
Grateful to Sir Ronnie as always for pushing through with the plan, making things possible and extending his kindness and generosity to as far as he can.
Also grateful to Jason for being my partner in crime and co-haggard prepper. Haha!

Diamond Christmas Party: 2016 Christmas Photo Dump No. 1

I have decided to make a photo dump of all events Christmas-related this year since 1) as much as I’d love to be all detail-y with everything that happened/would happen, I don’t think I’d have the time and energy to do just that and 2) I want to get this over and done with, no more backlogging ‘cos it might just lead to laziness which means zero content for my blog, my blog which is already suffering from futility. Huhu, I’d hate that, hehehe. SO HERE GOES… 

December 11, 2016 | Sunday
Appreciated all the helping hands that contributed to this undying love for our high school batch and Christmas partying – mainly Justine, Katrina and Julie Ann! :) Next year again? Yes? Lol! Special mention to Jonathan, Alexa and Kevin for the on-the-spot support. :)
So happy that the Tolentinos were ever so welcoming and accommodating when it came down to lending their terrace/garage for us, despite our noise!

I was so happy to see other faces of classmates aside from the regulars who show up every year! May they all never get tired of each other’s noise and fun!

Happy holidays, FAM!
