RA’s 50th birthday cake.
One of my mommy friends, RA, celebrated her big 50th birthday last night. And look at her cake. Isn’t it pretty? The theme of her party was gold so most of us were in something gold outfits. I put on a peach-colored sweater with gold shimmers on it.
Yours truly – mgmhar.
It was a happy evening with friends. I was glad to see some of them whom I haven’t seen in a long time. With the help of our common close friends, RA’s party was a success. There were lots of American food, Filipino food, drinks, and special desserts. After eating and socializing, the karaoke started.
There are great singers in my circle of friends. One of them is my friend and neighbor RJ, who was a former lead singer in a band. She and her band worked in Korea for a few years until she met her beloved husband and moved here in the US five years ago. While the birthday celebrant was busy entertaining, me and some of the female guests joined the karaoke then dancing afterwards.
As a part of RA’s birthday celebration, she hosted a raffle drawing for a Michael Kors handbag. This is in connection to her fund raising for her feeding program in her hometown in Samar Province in the Philippines. She is going home for a vacation in April and plan to feed more or less 500 children in her hometown.
Here is the handbag:

And who’s the lucky winner?
AJ is winner! Congratulations!!!
We had so much fun. It was a successful birthday party. And I am very certain that RA had a wonderful time, too.
Happy birthday, Ate RA!
New playground equipment.
We cannot wait for this new playground equipment to be installed completely at the Olde City Park in Wylie. It is about time to have the old ones replaced since they were old and damaged already. They were putting more slides, I can see. Spring is just around the corner and hopefully the play park will reopen very soon.
I am looking forward to this year’s social events in the town. One of my favorite event is the City Night Out. There are so many vendors and fun stuff for the kids. Also, the fireworks display is awesome.

Today’s the day I finalized the schedule of pick up of a kids’ bath toy I ordered online two months ago. Yes I ordered the Melissa & Doug Louie Lobster Claw Catcher bath toy in December because it’s supposed to be a Christmas gift to my niece but for some reason, I didn’t receive a pick up notice from the department store. The email sent to me was still in the “Processing” status and there was no update of some sort. I was very disappointed and confused.
Because I got very busy as Christmas was approaching, I wasn’t able to pick up the item. I called the online store’s customer service for a refund but the staff told me that the item was already in the store ready for pick up. I told him that I didn’t receive any pick up notice from the store that’s why I was asking for help.
So anyway, my darling daughter and I picked up the bath toy today at Sears in Frisco (Texas). Now it’s in my daughter’s bathroom. I’ll just have to find another toy for my niece to bring with us on our flight to the Philippines next month.
