Raviv’s Wardrobe Diary #31: Roar for Dinosaurs! (June 3, 2015)

Ola! I’m currently preparing for a presentation next Saturday, and I’m already tired. Blogging break muna.

Anyway, our super duper short & light UPCAT review season ended last week. To mark that finally we are on vacation mode, Randy made last minute plans to go to Clark/Angeles. Raviv had been saying he wanted to go back to Dinosaurs Island and to go swimming. So Randy tasked me to book at Fontana Hot Spring Leisure Parks & Casino. More about Fontana in a separate blogpost. For the meantime, i-feature muna natin ang Ravivong Bata and his outfit.

We arrived at Clark at around 9 a.m. Since it was still too early to check-in our villa at Fontana, we proceeded to Dinosaurs Island. Look at how excited and “nasa mood” Raviv was, despite the long travel:

Ain’t he the cutest?!? And allow me point out the obvious: his shirt was just perfect for this trip! Kebs nang long-sleeves at pinawisan siya! Basta dinosaur!  Or should I say, dino-snoar?

But it wasn’t just his shirt that was in the theme. Notice that he’s carrying a backpack, too. We don’t usually make him carry a bag, but this one’s an exception, because he loves his bag so much. Take a look:

Raviv’s whole ensemble made him so much more excited. So of course, here are the outfit details:

  • long-sleeved blue shirt: Debenham’s Blue Zoo
  • mustard shorts: Rustan’s Kiddos
  • sandals: Chicco
  • abaca hat: from a store at Festival Mall
  • bag: Lily & Tucker “Danny” bag

Raviv’s Wardrobe Diary #30: Nanay’s Shopping Buddy (May 8, 2015)

On Facebook and on Twitter, several people have been requesting me to blog about Raviv again. Onga, I haven’t been blogging about mi amorcito these days! Truth be told, we haven’t really bonded in the last weeks. We would be together physically, yes, but mentally my mind is wandering and wondering.

So last Thursday when I learned I have no classes (yep, Brain Train’s MomsterTeacher is back!!!), I decided to take Raviv out. It was a simple day out kasi SM Sta. Rosa lang ang kinaya naming puntahan. Nuvali or Paseo de Sta. Rosa may have been more sosyal to the ears, but we go there almost everyday already, and there are not too many stuff for kids in either mall. So SM Sta. Rosa it is! Here’s what he wore on our day out:

  • polo shirt: Old Navy
  • mustard shorts: Rustan’s Jr.
  • sandals: Florsheim Kids
  • abaca hat: SM Dept. Store
  • sunnies: Dickies

You know looking at this, I can’t help but smile. Binatang-binata ang anak ko. And I just gotta say it: he’s definitely a looker!

First, we went to a bookstore where I bought Raviv all books he wanted. And he was so happy! Next we went to SM Kids Fashion at SM Department Store. I really wanted to buy him new clothes because Raviv was going on a date with his Ninang Light Manuel the following day. Since it was medyo last minute, I wasn’t able to pack Raviv enough nice clothes (most of his clothes were in Los Banos; I brought clothes to last him until Friday only as he was supposed to travel back to Los Banos on this day). And wouldn’t you know it, there was a sale on most kids’ clothes!!! I got Raviv these:

Garfield Polo Shirt at 50% off; from P400 to P200 only!

Boys Got Style (BGS) shirt at 50% off; from P300 to only P150! I love BGS because even though they’re really affordable, they’re sturdy and stylish! What I love about this shirt is that the cloth is really soft and thick, and the rubberized surfboard design is a headturner!

However, even if there were lots of sale items, I still wasn’t able to resist buying Raviv these pants and polo that weren’t even on sale. Ang ganda kasi! Look:

Disney’s Cars denim short-sleeved polo. This is actually too big for Raviv, as it’s for 7 to 8-year-old boys! But this was the last piece and I wanted it so badly. We tried it on Raviv, and tucking it in did the trick!

I also got him these stylish pants to finish the look:

Snoopy red skinny jeans. Again, these were too big for him but since the waist was adjustable and the hem could be folded, keribells na!

After Raviv patiently tried on shirt after shirt and pants after pants, he somehow sensed I was in a good mood already. So he pulled me to the toy department. I normally don’t buy him toys, but because he was such a good boy today—indulging his Momma in her kaartehan—I got him a Ben 10 toy. On sale, too! ‘Yun lang, masaya na s’ya. Then we had lunch. We were supposed to go back home after lunch. But then I spotted the Uniqlo store! I love Uniqlo! I’m such a fan! The items may be a bit more expensive than Bench’s or Penshoppe’s and other local stores’s pero naman, the quality of their items are different. Fabric is softer yet sturdier, and design is casual yet fashionable. Plus I love that their stores are roomy and not cramped, and their sales assistants are always helpful and courteous.

Lookie lookie at what I got:

These shirts (made of super duper soft fabric!) cost P390 each…but wait, there’s more: If you buy 2 shirts you get P100 off! If you get three, that’s P200 off! Since I got 4, I got P300 off! Wow, what an offer! Hehehe!

Of course, I also got Raviv shorts from Uniqlo.

I’ve forgotten whether these shorts were on sale, but I found this pair too cute to pass up!

And yeah, I got Randy a pair of walking shorts, too!

Whaddya think? I honestly had second and third and fourth thoughts about buying these shorts. They’re lovely but I was thinking: Ready na ba si Randy sa ganitong shorts?!? But I proceeded buying anyway.

Wardrobe Diary #70: It Takes Gutz to Rub Elbows with the Gutierrezes (April 18, 2015)

Hello! I’m still reeling from a hectic day of travelling and teaching. So as much as I have promised myself I’m gonna blog about Gymboree Sta. Rosa’s Grand Launching, I feel it’s too much work (I have 1,600+++ photos to choose from. Waaah!) In place of that, here’s another Wardrobe Diary entry, featuring my outfit-ey when I “rubbed elbows” with la familia Gutierrez!

Had I not been extra, super duper to the max haggardous organizing our grand lunching/open house/Zion’s birthday party, I’d have gone shopping to buy an outfit especially for the occasion. But since I had zilch time and energy, I had to make do with what’s already in my closet.

The night before the big day, I finally decided to wear this:

(Photos taken after the event, when I finally had the time to smile and breathe)

  • jumpsuit: Forever 21
  • necklace: XOXO
  • watch: Motherhood’s Philip Stein
  • stilettos: Aldo
  • bag: Balenciaga Velo

I kept it simple, choosing to wear only two colors. None in this ensemble is new—everything’s been worn before and has been in my closet for months/years. Still, I was happy with my chosen ensemble. Everything would have been perfect if only I had enough time to do my make-up and hair. Waley eh. I was busy in the morning during our Open House entertaining our sponsors and answering inquiries, on top of overseeing everything else. Then I had about 30 minutes to freshen up, put on a little bit of make-up, and fix my hair a bit. Because not long after, guests have arrived. Waaaah!!!

Here are some sneak peeks of moi photobombing some of the activities and festivities, with a little bit of chika:

Eksena 1: Surprise–Tita Anabelle Rama is in the house!!!

Honestly, I thought that only Richard, Sarah & Baby Zion were coming. But when I was called to go down when our special guests have arrived, nag-panic ako because si “Tita” Anabelle Rama agad ang bumulaga sa akin! But my fears were misplaced. Ms. Anabelle was really friendly and accommodating.  She was also soft-spoken and was always smiling!  And yes, she truly looks like every inch like a donya.

Tita Anabelle’s quote of the day to me (bilang siya talaga ang Number 1 priority kong asikasuhin):

‘Day, iyo ba itong building na ‘to? Ang ganda ha! Nice place. Ang ganda!

O ‘di ba? Pasado sa standards ni Tita Anabelle!

Eksena 2: The Dedication, The Chanel Bags, The Prada Footwear and the Slippers

The photo above was during the message of dedication.  Randy and I were intently listening to Pastor Jon Dolor of Victory Los Banos’s message and prayer…

…and here, Motherhood intentionally stood beside the Gutierrezes, hehe.  Her shoulders literally rubbing Eddie Gutierrez’s elbow!

Motherhood’s quote of the day:

Buti na lang pinilit mo akong gamitin ‘yung Chanel bag mo…at least pareho kami ni Anabelle! Pero pinalitan ko ‘yung sapatos ko—isinuot ko uli ‘yung wedges ko! Si Anabelle Rama nga naka-slippers eh!

That’s because before the event, I urged Motherhood to ditch two things: her Cath Kidston floral bag (haller, ganyan ang outfit n’ya tas Cath Kidston floral bag?!?) and her Mendrez wedges. Alam n’yo ‘yung wedge na typical na sinusuot ng women her age? Exactly. I knew sasablay si Motherhood sa footwear and bagelya category, so I packed an extra bag for her (this quilted Chanel) and the Prada kitten-heeled shoes I made her wear during her surprise birthday party.  Which she jilted when she saw Annabelle was wearing thong sandals lang.

Raviv’s Dinosaur-Themed Gymboree Birthday Party Part 3: Wardrobe Diaries

Continued from Raviv’s Dinosaur-Themed Gymboree Birthday Party Part 2: The Most Fun Party, Ever!

and Raviv’s Dinosaur-Themed Gymboree Birthday Party Part 1: The DIY Decor & Aesthetics

I had a difficult time looking for Raviv’s outfit. I looked for it online and in children’s clothing boutiques. Nada. I thought it was easy to look for clothes with dinosaur prints because they were everywhere when Raviv was still a baby. But for some reason, dinosaur prints were no longer as popular for toddlers! I didn’t want Raviv to wear a full-on dinosaur hunter costume because he has worn something like that on his jungle safari first birthday party.

Good thing I dropped by SM Department Store a few days before Raviv’s birthday, because I was eager to use the P3,000 worth of gift checks that SM Kids Fashion gave me…

…because wouldn’t you know it, I found the perfect ensemble there! Look:

I got an inner shirt with the body of a dragon (but looks like a dinosaur when the wings are covered), plus matching paleontologist-isque khaki polo and shorts. Still looks like Raviv’s jungle safari costume #2, but the inner shirt makes it perfect for a dinosaur party!

Look at mi amorcito on his special day:

Wardrobe Diary #69: Black & White at the End of the Rainbow (March 6, 2015)

Happy Monday everyone!  How was last week for you?  I hope it went great!  As for Familia Ladaga, the magic sentence is:  The trouble with “Hello” is “Goodbye”.  O di ba?  Actually, the first half of this week was kinda uneventful.  Chill-chill lang.  But on the later (pasingit:  I was supposed to write “letter”, but I changed my mind because “latter” is the opposite of “former”, whereas “later” is the opposite of “earlier”…’di ba? #GrammarNaziMode) part of the week, it kinda became madrama.  Later post on that, because   this is a Wardrobe Diary entry!  So lemme show you what I wore on Friday to the program at Raviv’s school:

  • white top: Plains & Prints
  • lace pencil skirt: from a stall at Bobae Market in Bangkok
  • belt: Marks & Spencer
  • yellow wedge sandals: Figliarina
  • bag: LV Multicolore Alma
  • sunglasses: Sunnies by Charlie

I wore this ensemble para hindi masyadong halata how fat I’ve become.  Because I did gain a lot of weight!  But don’t worry, I haven’t had much appetite since Friday.  And I hope my very hearty appetite doesn’t return anytime soon.

Anyway, back to Friday. Pormal-pormalan tayo dahil ang anak ko ay…

Yes, Raviv came as a priest last Friday. See, the children at Raviv’s school were supposed to come wearing a community worker costume.  If you remember, Raviv wowed the crowd last year as a taho vendor.  This year, I wanted something unique again.  Even though I very badly want Raviv to be a surgeon (in real life), I knew that the “doctor” outfit would be very common.  But since I had no time to prepare and shop for his outfit-ey, I figured that a priest outfit will do.  Simple lang eh: black long-sleeves, black pants, DIY cross, DIY vicar’s collar and DIY Bible and voila, we have a priest!

‘Yun lang when Raviv was asked during their program what he was, he didn’t know what he was because we are not Catholics.

Anywho, Randy and I came in full force to Raviv’s program because (sob) that was Raviv’s last day at his very first school.  So even though both Raviv and I had fever that day, we still made a point to come (at dahil sayang din ang mga DIY priest accessories na ginawa ko the night before).  Laklak na lang muna ng paracetamol.  Moreover, we were eager to see Raviv finally perform in front.  Remember I used to share with you guys how sad I was that Raviv was too shy?  But you know, ever since he also started going to Gymboree, that changed.  This isn’t to say that his school did nothing about his social skills…it’s just that Gymboree seemed to work wonders with him.  Promise.  Like last Tuesday, a mom who inquired at Gymboree sounded so amused when she related that she met Raviv downstairs. When Raviv heard her asking about Gymboree, Raviv volunteered: “ I’m the owner of Gymboree.  You may play there but not for too long.  Ten minutes lang.”  Kalokang bata!  Randy and I were really surprised because Raviv used to be painfully shy!

So we weren’t that at all surprised when Raviv finally joined his classmates in performing in front!  He may not have been the best dancer, but my heart swelled with pride when I saw him shaking his body and mouthing the lyrics of the song!

And since it was his last day at his school, he was given his certificate.  The school also said goodbye to him. :(  Sad.

But most heartbreaking of all was that he would be separated from his first ever bestfriend, Marcus.

Raviv and Marcus go a long way back.  They went to Rainbow almost the same time, and now they’re also leaving Rainbow at the same time.  They’ve been friends for so long, naging magkamukha na rin sila!  Like last Wednesday when I fetched Raviv, his classmate Sophia called out to him and said, “Bye Marcus!”  Raviv explained to me that Sophia may have said that because “Same kami ng face ni Marcus e!”  Whenever you ask Raviv who his favorite friend, classmate or playmate is, he’d always say, “Marcus!” without batting an eyelash. So when we told him he was leaving Rainbow, he said he was OK with it—Marcus was leaving, too.  But when we told him that Marcus and he would be going to different schools, he said he didn’t want to be separated from Marcus.  Awwwww!

During luncheon after the program, Randy caught Raviv and Marcus under the buffet table comparing their costumes and naughtily “scaring” the younger kids walking near the buffet table.  And then would laugh heartily.  Randy took photos of the two, and no words are needed to describe how these two are each other’s first ever best friends: [Read more…]

Wardrobe Diary #68: It’s All About Love (Feb. 14, 2015)

My Valentine’s date story hasn’t ended yet!!!  So please, please allow me to relish my Valentine’s date.  But before that, let me show you first my Valentine’s Day outfit:

Here I was by our hotel room door at Acacia Hotel before having breakfast:

And here I was at the Acaci Restaurant after a very satisfying breakfast:

Sequined shift dress: Culte Femme

Bag: Marc Jacobs Stam

Ballet flats: Yosi Samra

You know, I had second thoughts about wearing a shift dress because shift dresses tend to make me shapeless.  And looking at the photos above, medyo nga.  But this Culte Femme dress looked and felt so good to wear that I took the risk.  Besides, the fact that its waist wasn’t cinched was perfect because I planned to eat a lot. 😉

Anyway, back to our date.  So Randy and I had a scrumptious buffet breakfast at Acaci Restaurant.  That’s part of our Valentine’s package at Acacia Hotel. [Read more…]

Wardrobe Diary #67: High on Love (Feb. 13, 2015)


I hope you had a love-filled Valentine’s weekend, just as I did!  I loved how our Valentine’s date went.    And boy, did we make the most out of it. 😉

This is a big deal for me because:

1. This was only the second time we had each other only to ourselves on an overnight date ever since Raviv was born.  ‘Yung first one, ang jologs pa nung place.

2. Valentine’s Day used to be stressful for us, because February used to be super busy for us.  As in sakit pa ng ulo for me because I would reluctantly heed Randy’s request na mag-date naman daw kami (#AkoNa).  And after a lunch date somewhere without any reservations, we would rush back to work.  Going through the motions lang talaga para hindi masabing wala na kaming romansa sa katawan.

But not this year.  Five days to go before Valenrine’s Day, we already had a concrete plan (yes, prepared na kami nang lagay na ‘yan!)

In the afternoon of Friday the 13th, Randy and I dropped Raviv at Gymboree Sta. Rosa then headed to Acacia Hotel in Alabang.  We got Acacia Hotel’s Valentine’s staycation package, and we also had tickets to its Valentine’s show.  We chose to spend it in Alabang because Randy is allergic to MMDA and traffic.  Eh haller, Saturday ang Valentine’s!

We arrived at Acacia Hotel at almost 4 p.m.  I loved almost everything about Acacia Hotel, by the way.  It’s a big part of why it was such a pleasant Valentine’s weekend.

I can’t help but feel extra special with Acacia Hotel’s little welcoming token, with matching “origami” of a turtle!

 Randy and I just had ample time to rest and “be a couple” (wink!) before the pre-Valentine’s show cocktails at 7 p.m.

Katuwa si Randy—he usually is KJ when it comes to selfies and photo ops, but he was game that afternoon!

 And then at almost 7 p.m., I changed into my “date” outfit.  Here I was:

little black dress: La Copa

bag: Louis Vuitton Alma

shoes: Aldo

Can I just say how much I loved my dress?  It’s a little black dress that just hid my love handles, made me look slimmer, and really comfortable. [Read more…]

Ang gwapo ng anak ko!

I’m not supposed to blog today or in the next days to come because up to now, my work plate is still full, as in!  But I feel like I’ve accomplished so many things in so little days that I deserve to babble my thoughts to you.

Our Gymboree Center has finally opened its doors on Saturday, yahoo!  That’s the reason why I said on my Instagram that i was mentally and yes, PHYSICALLY tired.  Inis-is ko ang mga talsik-talsik ng semento sa tiles ng toilet, mind you!  I’ll tell you more about the fabulous Gymboree Sta. Rosa on a separate post since I don’t want to think about work for the meantime.

And so let’s talk about my Ravivo, my ultimate source of joy.

About three weeks ago, I realized something:  ang gwapo na pala talaga ng unico hijo ko!

It’s not as though I used to find my son ugly or ordinary-looking. I think he’s cute and handsome in that F4 or Lee Min Ho way (which isn’t really my type, to be honest), but I am often shy to say that to other people. I mean, all moms think their children are cute, right? As in even if we moms somehow know they’re not, we’d look for an angle to always look at and start convincing ourselves that they are. Until finally, we believe it. I fear I may have unconsciously done that, that’s why I’m shy to blurt out that, “Ang gwapo ng anak ko!” because that may just be in my eyes.

But now, I feel more confident saying it, after hearing consecutive gushes of girls and gays, “Ang gwapo ng bata!”, “Ang pogi ng bata, o!” and the like.  This was when we went to Alabang Town Center three Mondays ago.

Here’s Raviv with his Tatay at IHOP Alabang that day:

Oh that smile!!!

After we that satisfying bruch at IHOP, we headed to ATC because Randy had a follow-up appointment at Obagi (his breakouts are at its worst and after shelling out thousands and thousands at Obagi, waley pa rin!  Sigh!)

While Randy was in consultation with his derma (who’s the spitting image of Katrina Halili…hmmm on hindsight I should have never left Randy there with “Katrina”, just as Vicki Belo shouldn’t have trusted Hayden Kho with the real Katrina!  Hehehe), I brought Raviv with me to go to the adjacent beauty parlors to ask about their keratin treatment packages.  In each parlor we went to, the staff would gush how handsome Raviv was.  I felt each and every one was sincere, because they would talk about it further after we had left.  When we finally went to Obagi, I overheard “Katrina” and her staff gushing again how utterly handsome Raviv was.

So confirmed, gwapo nga ang anak ko.  Straight from the mouth of Dr. Katrina Halili, beauty expert.

Now, to celebrate Raviv’s recently-confirmed kagwapuhan, I want to share with you some photos of him when I got him to pose ala mowdel-mowdel.  Patronize me—I’m a tired working (and working and working) momma here brimming with pride.

Moreover, these were supposed to be for his wardrobe diaries but as usual, I didn’t have the time to post them again.  So I’m cramming some of them here.

Ready? :)


Here’s Raviv’s “Suave” look:

Plaid Polo: Ralph Lauren
Pants: Mickey Mouse
Boots: Florsheim

Raviv here really looks like he belongs to a Ralph Lauren ad, don’t you think?  Even though the shadows are a telltale sign that this was shot at night, he still looks like a mini-me of the quintessential RL (Ralph Lauren or Raviv Ladaga?  Hehe) man in a glossy ad, squinting in the sunlight with hair being blown all over, but still manages to look hot.

Happy New Hair: My Keratin Treatment aka Brazilian Blowout aka Permanent Blowdry Experience

Hello hello hello hello!!!  My two weeks’ worth of chika are already jiggling with excitement as I type away!  I’m very sorry for being MIA for a long time. I know I’ve given this excuse many times in the past, but I swear I’m so busy that Randy is even frowning upon the fact that I’m squeezing this blogging in.

But how can I not blog?  Last week I got this really touching comment on my two-week old “latest” blog entry:

‘Di ba?  Denise, thank you so much for this very sweet message!  I truly, truly appreciate this!

Anyway, as Denise has alluded–happy new hair to me!  Yes, after almost three years, I’m straight again!

When my curls (digipermed in October 2013) have started getting really loose and the ends of my hair got really dry, I started hating my hair and knew pruning time was inevitable.  At first, my friends told me to renew my digiperm.  But I was tired of it.  I wanted to sport a bob to get rid of the remaining curls.

To convince my friends to support my quest to have a more modern and stylish hair, I actually pestered the salesladies of Metro Gaisano at ATC to put a wig on me:

 Chrys:  Dewmaine para kang si Katie Holmes, ang ganda…

After a few seconds…

Chrys:  Ay Dewmaine para ka rin palang si Charice nung paunti-unti na syang nag-a-out…Zaira tumabi ka kay Dewmaine, dali!  Tapos Dewmaine mag-pose ka nang parang ‘yung mga nakakunot parang si Charice…

Chrys:  Ayaaaan perfect!  Kayo na si Charice at Mommy Racquel!

Guys, ganyan talagang kaibigan si Chrysanthemum Collado! #SanayNaKami

Our peg.  Photo from Inquirer

Anyway, I actually sported a bob  five years ago.  And people told me I looked great. 😉  Lookie lookie:

Moi, 6 years ago sporting short hair with my student’s cute sister

In fairness, I think I looked fresh and young sporting that bob.  However, I’m a wash-and-wear girl when it comes to hair—as in I’m very lazy and terrible when it comes to fixing my hair (digiperms and stick straight hair give me that luxury).  And the hair in the photo above took me ten minutes to achieve, and I had to use a blower!  My hair tends to flyaway when short.  And I’m not willing to spend 10 minutes on my hair every day, thank you very much.

But my hopes went up when I heard about the Keratin Treatment aka Brazilian Blowout aka Permanent Blowdry.  When Randy went to Obagi at ATC for his checkup, I scoured the nearby beauty parlors and asked about Keratin Treatment aka Brazilian Blowout aka Permanent Blowdry.  I was told it does not straighten like rebonding but that it does remove the frizz.  I showed the hairstylists the hairstyles I’d like to achieve: [Read more…]

Wardrobe Diary #66: Our Best Friend’s Wedding Date (Nov. 16, 2014)

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Now that all food preparations, and gift buying and wrapping are done, I feel good that finally I can blog again!!!  I have so many chika in me that I’ve wanted to share with you for the longest time, but couldn’t because of so much work and concerns the past months.

Anyway, I think the whole Philippines knows that two days ago, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes wed, right?

Front page talaga!!!

I really hate admitting it even to myself, pero oo na, sige na—inabangan ko ‘yan at excited ako jan!  And perhaps if I weren’t happily married myself, it’s either I’d be green with envy at Marian or I will swear to myself that Michael Cinco will also fly from Dubai to dress me on my wedding day, no matter what!  But since I’m happily married myself, I’m just happy for Marian.  I’m so happy that after this post I intend to blog again…something about Marian Rivera (yuck fangirling na ba ako ng DongYan?!?)

Now speaking of weddings I was about about, it wasn’t just Marian and Dingdong whose wedding excited me.  In November, my and Randy’s best friend, Irvin Domingo Jr., wed the girl of his dreams, Tina Rivero.  The wedding ceremony was held at the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Church in Tagaytay, while the reception was done at Nurture Wellness Village | Nature Spa, also in Tagaytay.

Facebook photo uploaded by Tereyza Yee BautistaTina’s gown was sooo lovely!

Take a look at their same day edit video…astig, panira lang ang song number ni Irvin.  Joke!  Actually, it made it unique and very memorable:

Randy and I were both on the entourage:  I was a bride’s maid, and Randy was the best man.

PB160406Randy giving his epic best man’s toast

It was a lovely wedding because in attendance were people who truly, truly loved the couple.  Of course, with Randy and me were some of the Brain Train teachers who’ve been close to Irvin for several years.  It excited us because, for the first time, we were going to be really pretty and handsome all together.  And my my my, weren’t we?  Look at how lovely we all were!

These are (L-R) Edu J, Mitch, Abel, Reg, and Enteng.  Beauties and Brains Train-ers eh!  Hihi


And here’s a photo of me and Randy at the church:
