My darling daughter and I had a great time at my friend’s home last night. She and her husband hosted a birthday party for three of our friends, and it was our second sleep-over their house. There were dancing and lots of fun games. K enjoyed the dancing part. There were lots of food, drinks, and dessert. Though it was grownups’ birthday party, the young ones were given the time to have fun dancing and play kids’ games at the party. When it was time for bed, we got ready and tucked ourselves to bed at around 11:00 P.M.
We thought we were able to swim at my friend’s pool this morning but it rained very hard with thunder and lightning. So we will just come over next time to swim. 🙂
Royal blue graduation gowns.

Oh my…it is the last week of school. Summer is just around the corner. I can feel the summer heat already. Speaking of last week of school, this week is my daughter’s Kindergarten graduation. Yes, my friends. K is is First Grade ready. I am very excited. The folks are coming over for K’s graduation day. It is a very special day for the family.
I am trying to get myself ready for the special occasion-beauty wise. Yes, my friends. I would like to look great on my daughter’s graduation day. But my skin is not cooperating. My hormones are messing up with my plans. 🙂 At least I would like my hair to look amazing. I have a thin and frizzy hair. It is hard to manage as well. Going to the salon is just not a thing for me-time wise. So I am browsing the Internet for wig websites.
Yup. Considering to wear a lace front wig would be a great idea. There are many selections of lace front wigs on Divatress.com that are very adorable. I hope will be able to find the perfect one. The sooner the better. This is the time that will challenge your time management and budgeting skills. So wish me luck, my friends.
So cute stuffed animals toys on diaper cakes made by dear friend.
One of my friends had a baby shower party two weeks ago. We’re excited for her upcoming baby boy who’s due next month.
It’s a boy and he is a February baby.
Very cute baby shower cake.
1980s theme birthday party.
Filipino-American moms got together for a 1980s themed birthday party for our dear friend R four days ago. Most of us grew up in the 80s and 90s and when someone suggested the 80s theme birthday party, we all went nuts. LOL.
Anyway, it was a potluck party. Everyone brought special dishes for all to enjoy. Made some Chayote Cabbage with Pork Stir-Fry.

Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry
I don’t cook that often at home. But when I do, I stay in my kitchen until the food is cooked and the place is cleaned.
1 lb. pork (for stir fry)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 pcs. chayote squash, peeled and cut into cubes (bite size)
1 beef bouillon cube
1 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
- In medium heat, saute garlic and onion until brown and soft.
- Add pork. Stir fry for about 5-8 minutes until pork is brown.
- Sprinkle a dash of salt and a dash of black pepper.
- Simmer for 5 minutes while cooking in it’s own sauce. Stirring while simmering.
- Add chayote squash, water, and the beef bouillon. Stir to blend and let simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the vegetables and meat are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pretty birthday cake.
The little ones playing the Cup Game. They had so much fun!
Everyone had a great time at the party, I think. Especially when we started the disco and karaoke in the evening.
