ang kwento ng makata

The Sibs and I were fortunate to have watched this extraordinary concert by the one and only, Gloc-9 at the Music Museum in Greenhills, San Juan last Saturday.

We met up with my sister’s friend, Ate Xyza who gracefully assisted us through out this event.

It was the first of the four shows entitled, “Ang Kwento ng Makata, Gloc-9 Live”. Aristotle Pollisco aka Gloc-9 was known for his superduper fast flowing vocal skills. He also writes incredibly patriotic songs that depicts the reality on the lives of the Filipino people.

There were videos shown in between performances and as he explained in one of those, he is a story writer. He writes the stories of modern Filipino people and translates them into songs. These are stories that most of us can identify to—the lives of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), corrupt politicians, homosexuality to name a few.

baby samsam’s 2nd birthday

The sibs and I were in contact with Kuya Kenneth for a week regarding Baby SamSam’s 2nd birthday celebration. He informed us that it will be a simple Jollibee Kiddie Party with more or less 60 guests.

IMG_3838

We were so excited to see Baby SamSam and Baeby Baste but we patiently waited along with other guests.

IMG_3836

Everybody was very enthusiastic and eager to hug, kiss, and pinch these two kids as soon as they entered.

IMG_3845

IMG_3855

They were asked to sit down but as soon as they heard the beat of the music, they got out of their seats and danced along with the Jollibee staff.

IMG_3869

Everyone was so happy to see their moves and couldn’t help but take photos and videos of them.

IMG_3873

Samsam was very makulit and malikot. Paikot-ikot siya all over the place and he was hugely distracted by his birthday cake.

IMG_3914

IMG_3921Mommy Sheila had to distract him because he would’ve made a mess if he reached the birthday cake.

IMG_3928

After a few parlor games, guests were allowed to take a photo or two with them. SamSam was not included in half of the pictures kasi naglilikot siya kung saan saan. So adorbs!

IMG_3957

This is my most priced picture of me and Baeby Baste. I looooooove it!

IMG_3961

IMG_3978

The kids got tired of all the photo ops but were energized as soon as they saw Jollibee!

IMG_3991

SamSam loves Jollibee so much. He was so clingy and glued to the mascot. He even gave Jollibee some of his chocolates and I could have sworn that he tried to feed the mascot some candies.

IMG_3989

One of my Baeby Baste stories to tell my kids is this: While he was eating his Jolly Spaghetti, Baste tried to whistle and he was surprised with the sound that it made. He was looking straight at me and I laughed as I see he was baffled with the sound. He blew the whistle again to show off to me. Then I knew I made a connection with him. It was a moment between the two of us that I will treasure forever. Haha! May ganon?

IMG_3981

Give credit where credit is due, sabi nga nila. I have to give credit to and praise Mommy Shiella.

IMG_3964

The kids were polite and bubbly. I believe they are being raised properly. One of the things na hinangaan ko talaga sa mga bagets na ito ay ang positive attitude nila. They have videos that show na may sakit sila, and most of us are moody when we’re sick right? But these two were still smiling and malambing though masama ang pakiramdam nila. Ang galing lang. Ang gaan siguro nila maging kasama kahit pa tumanda na sila. Positive lang.

IMG_3973

They were trained to say “thank you” whenever they were handed gifts. They were asked to say “sorry” for improper things that they have done. And most especially, at a young age they know how to pray to and praise God.

Congratulations Mommy Shiella and Papa Sol for having two of the cutest and most wonderful kids in the world.

Again, Happy 2nd Birthday SamSam!
