Grad Ball

Time & again, I am reminded of just how blessed I am with the family I have now. Unlike the unit I grew up in, this time around, we are very close-knit & clingy AF. :P

The kids very rarely quarrel, if at all, and are each other’s best friends. In fact, for Ate‘s grad ball, she asked her Sho-bae as well as her perennial bodyguard, Mr. Pogi, to be her dates. ;) She not only had 1 escort, but 2!

A sibling date, how cool is that? I’m truly one lucky mommy for my giblings to be bffs on top of being siblings. Lemme tell you, that’s very very rare.


The siblings have their own set of friends. But they are also each other’s bffs & can easily be each other’s barkada. They are very loyal to one other & will fight tooth and nail to protect each other. The enemy of one is the enemy of all. Likewise, the friend of one is the friend of all. :)

Ate found a perfect blue goddess gown a while back for her ball, saktong pang-#confidentlybeautifulwithheart na sana, but decided at the last moment that it would be cuter if she can go twinning with her little sister instead. So now, it’s hanging in her naked closet. Goodness knows when she will get to use it, hmp! @_@ Mga batang pasaway.


The simple blue gown looks underrated, but on her, it looks smashing. Blue is really her color. Besides, hindi na uso ang mala pang-reyna elena at ninang na sparkly at burdadong gowns. Less is more. ;)

And so, Anastasia & Drizella went in search of the perfectly elegant but understated gowns. I fully agree with their taste. They don’t need frills & glitters to shine, they can do that very well on their own. ;)


My girls’ go-to boutique for rush outfits, PLUMA in ATC. Their tita Ann Chaves accommodates their spur of the moment whims. An off-the-rack skirt like this runs for around 8k each. Not bad, right? Then their tita made them tops which the girls can mix & match with other skirts or pants. Tipid-tip from Mommy Jane! ;)) PLUMA – 0927 450 7619

The girls look better with little to no make-up, I like seeing them fresh-faced & recognizable. So they went to Ate‘s BFF-cum-up-&-coming-makeup-artist for that no-makeup look, just some enhancements on their best features.


I see girls who are totally unrecognizable after heavy make up. Nag-iiba ang hitsura. Mukhang anghel pag naayusan, pero mukhang aswang uli kinabukasan lol. That’s not what I want for mine. Jasmine was able to give them a clean, youthful look, enhancing only their best features. MAKEUP BY JASMIN 0917 795 1794

With that, Anastasia, together with Drizella & Prince Charming, went off to the ball.. leaving poor me Cinderella behind. ;P


My adorables. <3 I’m one mega super-dee-duper lucky mommah!


Her squad. All equally lovely.


The grad ball was held in Whitespace, Makati.

Ate’s grad ball was attended by more or less 400 students from 8 sections which don’t really make for an intimate gathering. Plus she hadn’t been very sociable in the school front -as you know, uste is not exactly the party capital hehe, so she didn’t know many of the peeps there. Besides, her squad went with their respective dates, so it really wasn’t so much fun for the belle of the ball. Kaya yan, at the strike of 10 pm, the siblings up & left and gatecrashed my own little party with Kap at the Pen, trololol! ;P


Eeeeat, BULAGA! Here we are mommy!



Oh well, this 19 scoops of Pen Pals ice cream at The Lobby of The Peninsula Manila is meant to be shared anyway. Sorry na lang Kap, to be continued ang ating landian!


Guys, hindi ba kayo kumain sa ball? #masakitangngipin


Oh yeah, girls with hefty appetites are the prettiest. <3

We really are clingy AF. But I’m glad that the kids feel that their old parents are still fun & enjoyable enough to spend time with. Giblings, you are definitely most welcome to join our party any time. Gatecrash away. ;)

PS: As you know, we are not only a clingy family, we are also a brood of camwhores. Hindi pwedeng umuwi ng walang photoshoot, mga GGSS talaga kami. I leave you with these. If all else fails, pwede ko silang pagkakitaan bilang mowdels! Mabuhay kaya kami hehe.
