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.
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?
We had so much fun. It was a successful birthday party. And I am very certain that RA had a wonderful time, too.
