On Friday, we attended the Family Day at Raviv’s school. Weeks before, we received a note that on this Family Day, each family will have to present something: a song or dance number, or whatever that would make the other families know each family better.
(The original date, Oct. 3, was moved to Oct. 11 because the venue, Brent Gym, was not available on Oct. 3)
Since dancing and singing are not for me, and Randy hates the spotlight, we were left with no choice but to create a slide show movie. Before I show you what I created (with the help of my protegé Sargei—I don’t know a tad about Photoshop!), here are some snapshots of moi and what I wore:
And here’s a closer look at the details:
- vintage red leather bag from Balenciaga
- knitted black and white vest from ukay
- white blouse with oversize ruffles from Gallery F
- black leggings from Greenhills Shopping Center
- gray wedge pumps from Zara
I veered away from my usual dress because the letter from Raviv’s school said that the event was informal and we will be sitting on mats.
Since our kids were toddlers, most of families also prepared slideshows of family photos like we did. Buuuuut, nagpaka-creative ng konti ang lola n’yo. Instead of putting together our pictures to make a slideshow/movie, meme-style ang ginawa ko…the famous “What people think I do” chorva. Eto (don’t skip this, I swear matutuwa ka!)
Haha! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I and Sargei did putting them together.
Each family was also requested to bring a pasta or sandwiches good for about 30 people, potluck kasi. Eto, I’m not a fan of pasta talaga, ergo I can’t perfect carbonara, fettuccini, and baked macaroni. So hindi na ako nag-ilusyon na magdala ng pasta. Instead, I whipped up a batch of mini-burgers (“sliders” daw sa UK according to my sossy friends Catherine Palomo and Munira Manuel). Since I want my “sliders” (feeling ko sumusosyal ako when I use this term!) to taste really delicious, I sought the help of Randy’s “chef” friend, Arvin Quilloy. Arvin’s family is one of the most low-key yet popular order-an ng handa in town. No advertisement sila at ayaw mag-full blown catering o restau, sayang!
And here’s our contribution to the potluck:
In fairview, my sliders were one of the first to get wiped out! Aaand, I did not see any leftovers on the people’s plates. Masakit sa damdamino ‘di ba ‘pag nakikitang hindi ubos ‘yung food na ni-prepare mo? It definitely was a good decision—sliders are easy to eat and small.
But aside from my sliders, there were also lotsa other good food:
At marami pang iba!
Truly, the end-of-quarter activities at Raviv’s school is something I look forward to! I gives me a sneak peek of Raviv’s life beyond us. Not to mention the nice chit-chats over lotsa good food!
Tell me what you think!
