may venue na kamiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!! yahooo!! sa Auditorium of Tektite Bldg in Ortigas.. they don't pencil book but Ms. Rowena Martin was kind enough to do it for us 'cause she can hear the desperation in my voice,.. hehe jk..we just couldn't set our schedules straight so she gave us until saturday to give our deposit.. it's 4k an hour.. (still cheaper than the mosquito-infested Kasalikasan).. we'll probably just rent it for 3-4 hours.. think that's more than enough for the eating, the program (speech, cake cutting, etc) and the dancing..
yehey!! last weekend was a busy (but happy) 'cause my soon to be MIL and I (with pangs of course) went to various prospective reception venues.. we went to Lepanto Penthouse (at Paseo) where SWAN had an actual set-up (the place was too small for us, i think), then at Kasalikan in The Fort (as my soon-to-be MIL said.. "no good!"), Palladium Clubhouse at Shaw (plain ugly..did not meet ANY of my expectations) and lastly at the Auditorium of the Tektite Building.. it was really the best, no wonder my cousin, Ate Lala, chose that place for her wedding.. it was big, square place that had a stage and chandeliers.. it even had a foyer (where we could put a Studio set-up and our Gifts Table)..it's big enough for 200 guests and our band AND the ceiling was high enough for our gazebo!! yeheyyy! so so so so happy.. i'll post some pics next time of the venue..
also very happy 'cause I got the chance this weekend to bond with Raymond's mom.. i love her already! she's so easy to talk to and she doesn't scare me one bit.. I also met Raymond's lolo and lola.. i absolutely adooore his lola..(plus the fact that she likes me too!! hehe) she was like all teary-eyed and said "eto magiging manugang naten!" hahaha!
kain lang ako lunch.. bye all!
