Si Depya, Kwarenta Na??? Inuman Na!!!
Last September 17th, an old friend (as in old talaga! hahaha!) celebrated her…his…40th birthday. It took me a total of ONE WEEK to put together a simple beer-themed party with about 20 of her closest friends and family in attendance. We were supposed to have the party at her mom’s house but surprised her instead with a last-minute change of venue – to the neighborhood clubhouse just a few feet across from their house. Well, many of the other details of the party were kept from our celebrant and unknown to her, she was about to become a surprise victim at her own birthday party! She called for the gathering, with a date, place, time and guest list already decided on, and I was supposed to just “help out” by bringing anything edible to add to the pulutan. It was really supposed to be a simple birthday inuman and kwentuhan. What DP didn’t know was that I intended to bring with me not just a pot of Beef Salpicao or a bowl of mixed nuts, but the whole shebang – an entire buffet of assorted beer snacks, appetizers, six all-time favorite Filipino dishes for the main course, as well as Filipino dessert faves, complete with tiffany chairs, coordinated table linens and centerpieces (with a lot of help from my reliable friends at Cravings)! That was my birthday gift to her. Imagine what we could have done if we had a month to prepare, right? Hehehe!
It was a night of unadulterated fun, laughter and ear-shattering videoconcierto (LOL)! The most important thing for me, and everyone else present there, was that our Celebrant was happy and felt loved – ‘coz she truly is!
