...nobelang post

my post yesterday, August 23, 2005:

...had my first fitting with Tet Hagape last Saturday.. ang luwag! waaah! mas pumayat pa ako *hinagpis* huhuhu.. *sighs*.. bumili na nga ako Mosegor tomorrow, nainggit ako keh Mai, tumaba daw siya ng 5 lbs in 2 weeks.. sana ako rin.. anyway, I went there together with Nanay Siony, Tita Ebot, Mom and Pangs at Tet's house.. ang iingay nila hehe, para silang giggling school girls nung nakikipagusap keh Tet at mga excited magpatahi hehe.. actually, si Mom lang daw ang pinakamaingay sabi ni Pangs..(meh pinagmanahan ako) ganda ng dinesign ni Tet for them, natuwa sila, tas reasonable yung price.. keh Mommy 4500 (dami kasing beads, ang arte, lol!), keh Nanay Siony and Tita Ebot tag 3500..


here's my mom's dress..she wanted lots of beadwork in it (bilib ako sa paninindigan nya at nakakahindi siya keh Tet) she was very specific on what she wanted..the result is a gown full of beadworks..not really Tet's specialty, but what can I say, adults always win
MOB meh pansuelo, pamuelo.. arggh crap, can't remember what it's called, that she can remove when it's dancing time

here's Nanay Siony's.. wohoo, bongga..Tet said "we could put a dainty brooch on her shoulder" then my Mom interfered and said.."ay Tet, hindi na pwedeng Dainty-dainty samen, dapat bongga!" hehe.

and keh Tita Ebot.. sabi nga ni Tet, tried and tested na ang design na toh to hide yung tummy..

after that, (tagal namin dun, muntik na nga akong makalimutan magfitting eh) we went to Marge's place (the same Marge whom we created a Brochure for) to look at her items and our invites box.. invites box muna namin..ang galing, kung supplier rating eh, exceeds expectations ito! burnt amber daw ang color.. i love it's simplicity and modern siya na meh pinoy touch..

invites-box
we'll just buy the raffia strings at Divi..and mom has loads of wooden beads



Sunday morning after mass, we went to Marilao, Bulacan for my Tita's birthday (sarap ng lengua) and kasama ko rin si Pangs.. at usapang kasal ang mga tanders dun.. yung Dad ko, gumagaling na khet papaano dhel binabasa nya yung mga Metro WEddings at Wedding Essentials na magazine na binibili ko.. narinig ko nga eh.. "Sa Greenmeadows Clubhouse nga eh 900 pesos lang ang renta!" AHAHAH. Kakatawa! hindi ko sinabi yun uh, so i figured he must have read it sa mag.. tapos, nagpaalam kami ng maaga dahil meh sched nga ako with Sentimental Groove on 3 pm.. sabi ba naman ni Daddy.. "meh meeting sa combo!" LOl! combo parin tawag ano..

anyway, yung BWISET na combo na yun eh, isa lang masasabi ko.. they never fail to disappoint us.. grrrrr. always, laging meh issue sa bwiset na TSG dun at super malapit na akong mapuno.. pagpunta namin dun.. nagpapacute pa si Pia samen at sinabi na meh "teeny problem" daw.. knowing "teeny" is relative eh tanong na ako kung ano ba ang prob.. hindi daw makakarating yung lead guitarist ng SOS at he called in sick daw..nalaman lang daw nya nung 2pm daw, eh 3 pm yung schedule..ok, fine, so khet 1 hour before nya lang nalaman, dapat tinawag nya parin kasi papunta pa lang naman kami nun eh, at least pwede kami mag-iba ng lakad dibuh.. hayy.. wish, wish, WISH KO lang maayos sila sa Wedding day ko.. mamaya dyan, he calls in sick sa wedding day namin! nyakish! dapat magkabackup plan..pero di ako naniniwala na sick siya.. kasi kung ganon, dapat yung ibang SOS andun, eh wala.. feeling ni h2b, nagsched ng Gig yon kaya wala.. grrr. Sabi nalang ni Pia, free na daw listening session namin (dapat kasi meh bayad na 1k for the musicians transpo and food allowance) okay, fine.. kunwari menos 1k eh nakapromo naman nila ngayon yun na pagnagbook eh inclusive na of prod meetings, listening sessions, etc.. so tambay lang kami dun sa building nila since meh Demo naman ang James Band, para ndi naman nasayang pagpunta namin.. nung paalis na kami, andun si Pia sa labas.. sabi nya.."sa Sept 17 (nagresched kami) ulit.. ok na ba ang 4 musicians?"

hahahaha. sabi ni erlyn, nakita nya daw mukha ko nung sinabi ni Pia yun..isip nya daw "uh-oh, monster mode si Geri" hahaha! sabi ko na lng sa aking pinakamahinahong boses.."lahat sila, diba?" tas sabi ni Pia.. "uh, okay. sige"

*sighs* hihirit pa ano. grr.

Ang gaganda naman ng sketch lalo na yung pangalawa.

Nga pala I changed my blogskin ulet, kasi ang hirap at tagal nga magload ng frames. Di rin ako natuwa. It was cute lang sa simula. Bisita ka ulet.

Buti ka pa maraming regalo. Kami paguwi na siguro. Yung iba kasi tinawagan lang namin. :D
