EVERYDAY: Bridal Shower (Office)


Okay, I think by now I can say that my husband is very manipulative and a very good liar. NOT. πŸ˜› I sensed this one! — but mostly because I know my office mates. They are a sucker for showers like this, may it be a bridal shower or a baby shower. Plus, I’ve been there. I have been part of the planning group. So yep, guessed this one alright!

To get you in perspective, you have to know that my Wedding was scheduled last November 24 and the Shower happened the Friday, two weeks prior.

First, my colleagues and I already picked the date for our Christmas Party so to get that out of my hair (buying the gift and all), I told them that we needed to pick our Santa Babies already and I need the wish list pronto! (But all of them were saying to delay it by the said Friday – and they were pretty insistent, if I may say). – so that was Hunch 1. Two, one of my office mates were collecting money. For what? Hunch 2.Β  Three, one of hubby’s office mates asked me to bring him to a condominium for his surprise bachelor’s party. (to the same condominium my office mates were talking about for our Christmas Party!) Hunch 3. And to test the waters a bit, I kept dropping hints that I wanted to go home that Friday because I was feeling a bit beat up due to all the wedding preparations. And the event planner in our group is obviously quite pissed. Hunch 4. HAHA.

Everyone from all sorts of division is here! The night is filled with some dancing, games and a lot of drinking! We started at 8 in the evening so everyone was pretty famished by this time. We ate some good ol’ pasta, chicken, pizza and cake.

First game? No other than the famous Make your own wedding gown using tissue! I know, Sorry Mother Earth for wasting so many tissue. They were supposed to guess which gown I would wear but they both guessed wrong. One of them was off shoulder, and the other, a tube. The team who won was the closest to my neckline.

Mind you, I’m also part of the games. The second and third game was a bit lewd. Teams were divided into two and the two guys will be seating in the chairs with bananas in the middle of their legs and the other group mates will have to finish / eat the banana without using their hands. The other game was the guys will be holding a balloon pump in between their legs and the ladies will have to pump a balloon and pump until the balloon pops. I’m part of the winning team, if you may ask. πŸ˜›

Of course, there’s pin the dick with my husband’s face on it. There’s a twist of we will be shouting Hot or Cold. Hot if the player is already near while Cold if the player is moving farther away. But the technique is? If the player is moving towards the right direction, SHOUT COLD! Haha. We were so tired from all the laughing when our eldest colleague ended up pinning the dick in a WHOLE DIFFERENT ROOM. Hahaha.

After 5 games, we were pretty pretty exhausted from all the laughing. We took a bunch of pictures and a second round of dinner. πŸ˜›

Let the party begin! Like I said, a whole lot of drinking.

Thanks to alcohol, I discovered I’m pretty good with cups! Hahaha. There were different levels of tossing the cups and I managed fairly better than the rest. ❀ Hahaha.

I’ll be editing videos from this night. It was so fun! I’ll share them with you once I’m done. ❀ Usually, they are uptight but this night, everyone was out of it. Everyone was dancing and hammered. I had so much fun! Thank youuuuu, guys!

Any memorable experiences from your Bridal Shower Party? Share them with me. ❀ I would love to hear them.

EVERYDAY: BOO DESPEDIDA


It’s a BSP Policy. A Bank employee should be rotated every five years to avoid fraudulent activities. And now that the 100 days is over, time to say goodbye again.

IMG_4010

We ordered Buttered Shrimp, Calamares, Crabs in Oyster Sauce, Tempura and Sinigang na Tanigue. Oh my Seafood Right? Gahhh. And we all ate rice at 4 in the afternoon. What? Haha. Don’t judge. Who can resist?IMG_4018 IMG_4040 IMG_4244

Well, I’m glad that I didn’t listen to all the warnings and all the hearsays. They’ve been a lot of bad comments, but I do find her really friendly and accommodating and sincere. We’re both officers. But the other BOOs treat me like I’m a child since I’m the youngest officer but this one, she never made me feel any different.

Thank you and See you around, Ms Beng! :))

EVERYDAY: Audit Saturday


It feels like we have been preparing for this for weeks. And do we even get for doing overtime? Rude Auditors. Yes,yes. They’re supposed to doubt. But seriously, if you can actually see that employees are doing good and having no intention of getting money from the bank, can you let us off the hook when the only thing we did wrong was not to affix our signature i full? Don’t you have a more strong basis for to reassure yourselves of the importance of your job?IMG_1162
