As I stated in my first article for the month of September A Month Of Birthdays, September is a month of birthdays for us since most of my family members' birthdays are in September, like literally every week there is a celebration. But today is the grand celebration for the September birthday celebrants.
This day marks the day when our queen mother was born, our dearest grandma! This is why I was not that active yesterday and today because I was busy preparing everything: hays, perks of being a hotelier. LOL. Last night, all of us cousins gathered in the kitchen at our grandparents' house to prepare everything: the decorations, balloons, and all. It wouldn't be complete without a bottle of booze. That is why they are all so alive and kickin' because they are drinking while decorating. Hays, the typical cousins of mine.
WARNING: LOTS OF PHOTOS AHEAD
Last night was a fun night, even though I didn't drink any booze, but it was still fun hanging out with them. My cousin and siblings were preparing the curtain for the background, while my other cousin and I were preparing the balloons. Since we don't have a balloon pump, we just use our powerful mouths to blow all those balloons. I'm really good at blowing balloons to the point that my mouth almost gets swollen. XD
The first photo above was actually the first position of the curtain, but then we realized that when morning came, it would surely be against the light when taking pictures, so we just moved it to the other side, which is the second photo below, and it turned out well because of its wide space.
After decorating, they then proceed to their usual "tagay". They even buy more bottles of booze. These guys are crazy. I think they finished six bottles, including two The Bars. After they ran out of drinks, they switched to coffee. LMAO, they are all wasted and have started doing Tiktoks. Some of my cousins even lay down snoring. If only I could attach videos without the need to upload them on youtube, it would've been so hilarious.
Let's Dig In!
The first photo was from the time when we surprised the two of them. It was actually the plan of my aunt who was in Canada. She planned it all for our grandparents. I don't know if it is still a surprise since our grandpa expected this to happen already. Well, it's because he's already gotten used to being surprised lol. But it was all worth it because both of them cried. Grandpa thought that our aunt was inside the car and suddenly appeared. After those emotional surprises, we, the grandchildren, then yelled, "One Hundred!" LMAO [mga dangan gyud kaayo.]
Call me immature, but I was literally a bit sad because I didn't get one of these pretty cupcakes. I mean, I was the one who displayed it in the cupcake stand and I had been targeting this one. But when lunch started, I was just looking for something at the other house, but when I came back, it was already gone like a bubble. ROFL. BWAHAHAH
The only thing we didn't have was a videoke because our aunt wouldn't let us have one. She doesn't want this celebration to end up like our grandfather's birthday last year, where most of the people in our community were invited, and she's also worried about the covid thingy. That is why we only invite the people in our neighborhood and our other relatives.
But still, our uncle still found a way to sing. Instead of using a videoke machine, they just used a Bluetooth speaker and YouTube Karaoke. Big brain time! LOL
Still, everyone enjoyed it and they all had fun!
I just wanted to let you know how much you mean to me. Only a heart as precious as yours would be willing to give so generously. The countless things you've done and all the times you've been there have helped me realize how much you care about us, your grandchildren. Even though sometimes we may not be able to tell you how lucky and blessed we are to have you, we are so richly blessed that we have a grandmother just like you. Happy Birthday. We love you lola! We love both of you guys :>
This day was indeed exhausting, but full of fun!
All photos attached are taken by yours truly.
