kaka nginig naman ng laman yung ibang horror quest nyo. hehe. sakin kasi medyo advantage na rin na may pagka suplada ako kaya yung iba medyo alangan umasta sakin ng ganyan kasi sometimes sasabihan ko talaga sila.

When I was single, yung mga party ng mom ko at sister ko nakaka experience sila ng abusadong guest, mostly relatives sa father side ko. hiwalay ang parent's ko ha, pero itong mga bilas nya ang plaplastic i call them "kalatog pingan" laging present sa handaan pero mga close friends ng stepmom ko, mga ispiya. eventually nakarma din sila, lahat kasi ng tito ko babaero lahat nagkaroon ng 2nd some 3rd family pa. tapos itong mga tita kong to dahil nga alipore ng stepmom ko nuon, may dala pang mga hakot, panira ng party, ang kakaiba pa hindi naman sila invited or pinasabihan man lang, basta susulpot yun sa date ng birthdays namin sa bahay, 1 time pa nga pumunta sila bday ng bro ko eh ibang petsa ginanap yung party, ang dami nila, nag demand pa na magpabili na lang daw ng lutong food si mommy. kapal.

Tapos kaya itong mga relatives na ito ay nangimi na sakin kasi 1 was pregnant nun tapos first bday ng pamangkin ko, aba hakot nanaman ang quest nila, hindi lang isang pamilya gumagawa nito ha, mga 3 sila, yung isa 6 sila sa pamilya, plus yung 2 college classmates ng isang anak, gf nung isa, barkada nung isa tapos hubby nya at anak plus mil at sil plus 2 best friends with 4 kids total 17 sila, tapos yung isang family of 5 8 naman ang dala, total 13. tapos yung pangatlo may sarili nyang party 3 lang sila sa family pero 15 ang bitbit nya. hindi ko pinalagpas, nilapitan ko tita ko tinanong ko kung sino yung mga kasama nya, keso taga barangay etc etc, sabi ko next time pasabihan nyo kami kung magbibitbit kayo ng sarili nyong mga bisita, lalo na pag hindi namin mga kilala. syempre pinagkalat ang pagiging madamot ko daw. well atleast from then on hindi na sila pumupunta sa party namin, hindi naman namin sila namimiss. hehe


sa sarili kong party naman nung binyag ng baby ko, may kapitbahay akong known for her kakapalan. expected ko nang mag hohoard yun ng pagkain. sabi ng kapatid ko nakakatatlong plato na aw ng litson ang inuuwi sa bahay nila, tapos tag isang plate ng ibang putahe. 1 week yata nilang inulam yun according to my kumpare na kabahay nila. hindi ko kasi nakita nung ginagawa nya yun. I am not afraid to be vocal kasi, if my mga guest na gusto magpa balot at medyo maaga pa, I am not afraid to tell them "naku hindi kita mapapabalutan kasi I expect more guest pa." pero towards the end naman na ng party at may sobra ako na rin nag aalok ng balot. Yung iba nakakalusot lang pag hindi ko alam usually sa father side family ko. kasi sa mother side ko may disiplina kami, hehe.

may naalala pa ako, itong kumare ko naman. nerent ko kasi para mag sundo kay hubby sa airport, tapos kasama mom ko kasi mas matanda pa sya sa mom ko ewan ko nga kay hub bakit kinuha pang ninang ng baby ko yun kahit majonda na, hehe. tapos nag sama pa ng isa pa nilang friends, so magbabarka da naman sila ng mom ko. tapos nag duty free, nagpabili rin ng chocolates for her apo naman daw, ok lang sakin yun 5 dollars lang naman. ang nakaka umay, nung kakain na sa food court. tinatanong ko what gusto nilang food, sabi nung isa sa kenny rogers na lang, agree naman sya at si mama. so nag order kami ni hubby, pag balilk namin nag order daw sya ng sinigang at pusit dun sa malapit ng stall, assume ko naman na sya mag babayad, tapos binulungan ako ni mama na ako daw pala mag babayad at mamaya na daw ibibigay yung bill. dumating yung orders nya para naman sa lahat din. tapos 1400 yung bill nya dun. yun lang sana nag sabi na lang sy ana gusto nya yun hindi yung pag talikod namin saka sya oorder ar pwersahan na kami ang magbabayad. kainis lan gyung mga ganung ugali.

I remember pa pala bigla, nung 1st birthday ng baby ko may guest kami na gusto na agad kumuha ng loot bags for her daughter daw na hindi naman nya kasama sa party, this is my friend from college.

"sabi ko babe, unahin muna natin yung mga bata na present dito sa party ha, baka kasi kulangin"

sobra naman yung lootbags kaso ayoko lang kasi ng ganun. binigyan ko naman din after the party.

for me horror guests yung kumukuha ng food na hindi naman pala nila kayang ubusin kasi busog na sila.  yung cake, ako pa nagserve and i ask if gaano kalaki kasi i know na super dami na nakain, sabi pa malaki daw tapos hindi naman pala uubusin kasi busog na busog na.  kainis yung mga ganun na mahilig magtira-tira ng food sa plate!

pInaka buwiset na buwiset ako sana mabasa nila ito! buwiset sila..

Last Sept lang kasi dedication ng baby ko. Nag invite kami ni hubby since sa bahay ang handa lang just small gathering meryenda thing if nabasa nyo post ko sa ibang thread nasa 30 ang estimated ko dadating so pinasobrahan ko yun pagkain.  I also invited kapitbahay sa tapat.

So sabi 3PM ang kainan. Yun mga officemates ni hubby dati was invited some of them pa dati ko officemates also. alam ko taga manila sila yun iba taga cavite lang yun iba kapit village lang. nagconfirm sila. on the day lahat sila nagcancel naiinis talaga ako.. imagine yun niluto namin.. ang dumating lang yun friends namin na kasama namin ni hubby sa wedding coordination so 4 sila plus yun kapitbahay namin sa tapat na 2 adult at 2 kids lang.. plus kami 7 sa bahay that makes 13 adults lang.. hindi ako nag invite ng ibang friends ko na kasi nga nag invite na si hubby sa mga dati ngyang officemate.

Namuro sila sakin kasi di rin sila dumating nun sa birthday ng panganay ko last 2009. kaya never in my entire life will invite them nor attend their affairs naman magcoconfirm din ako pupunta tapos di ako sisipot hahaha.


- ANother, yun kamag anak ng bride namin, esp his kuya and the wife after the wedding ransack the cake at teh stage where as instructed to teh waiter will pack it in styro para mas OK lumapit ako and told them to wait kasi ang sabi ng couple divided by two yun cake both sides nagalit yun kuya sabi alis na lang sila tapos sabay hirit " pag ako nagalit" napamura talaga ako while walking towards ng my teammates and even cried. as in! gusto ko sapukin yun kuya nun mga oras na yun and until now nanggigigl padin ako pag naaalala ko sya!

kapal muks nila plastic pa ng pang isda dala nila.. ayos sinabi ko sa waiter ilagay nyo yan cake sa me likod hayaan tapos ipack nyo yun hindi nagalaw iwan nyo yun minassacre nila layer. after nun bumalik yun mag asawa nakita ata yun ibang relatives na pinamigay namin yun cake per instructions na nun couple in STYRO! binalikan ang cake! lamunin nila yun cake gosh!

oh by the way some guest pala after the party have their own plastic OMG kasal yun ha.. Baguio wedding ito e sorry ha pero lalo pinaliit nila yun tingin ko sa mga taga dun sorry hahaha lumaki din ako sa baguio and my husband is a highlander pero hindi kami even my hubby's mom and kuya are like that no!
kaya ininum nalang namin sa bar yun inis ko!

- NUn wedding ko naman, there's this relatives ni hubby who confirms to attend. so one table alloted sa kanila and on the day cancelled ayos! kaya next time hindi nako magiinvite ng kamag anak ni hubby na di sumipot sa kasal namin manigas sila! baguio country club yun kasal ko hindi pa nila naisip magkano per head yun 1k+++ pinang bora nalang sana namin yun 10k na yun gosh!

- nun nitong august uli 2nd birthday ng baby ko and 1st birthday ng pamangkin ko. since sawsawera lang kami ng anak ko e syempre majority ng guest galing sa sister ko.. mga officemate niya walang sense of time as in! 1PM ang nakalagay sa invitation. The invitation was distributed 2 weeks before. Tapos alam nyo ano oras sila halos lahat dumating? mag 2PM dahil nag antayan pa mga yun sa isang place? nagwowork naman sila sa makati e cant they just go sa venue na nasa makati din lang nagprovide pako ng map tapos wait for their companions dun? gosh uli.

Yun guest namin ni hubby namuti na sa gutom dahil ang tagal mag start e wala pa 1pm andun na sila. tapos buti wala party after us imagine that! 1-3 ang reserved time namin 2pm na halos nagstart ano party naman ang 1 hr lang buti pumayag mag extend ang shakeys valero ng free.. kaya banas na banas ang kapatid ko. we are outside nga by 1:30 na nun calling my sister's officemates.  me isa pa sumagot na aya ngayon ba party ng anak mo? nakakainis talaga!
dapat ang mga guest na ganyan bina-ban.

- guest also na pa VIP meron kami nun sa wedding yun matandang babae. ask namin ano last name nya sabi nya DRA... CHURAVA EKEK... sabay check yun name nya sa list. ay yun husband ko DR churva din hindi makakarating and dapat daw yun name na nakasulat sa list DRA not just the name.. pinipilit na isulat daw namin... FIY yun client ang nagprovide ng list no ano sya hilo! para matapos ang usapan sinulat namin DRA sa me name nya. yun pala principal sya ng isang school at naka doctorate sya kaya DRA haha

Just want to share this.

During my sons Baptismal, kinuha ko na Ninang yung isang friend ko. During reception, since EAT ALL YOU CAN siya, andami niyang kinuha. Kinabahan pa ako na baka mag extra charge ako kasi dapat ubusin nila yung food na kinuha nila. Siya, ang dami niyang kinuha pero siguro hindi niya kilala yung ibang food, hindi niya inubos. Nakakainis diba. Tapos, after the party, I found out na wala pala siyang dalang gift. Sana talaga hindi ko na siya kinuhang Ninang ng anak ko. Nakakainis siya.

I have another friend / ofcmate na ganun din ang ginawa. Wala din siyang dalang gift. But before the party e tanong ng tanong naman kung anong gift ang gusto ko for my son. Grrrr...

I guess may mga tao talaga na ganun. Hindi ko alam bakit hindi sila nahihiya na wala silang dalang regalo. :-(

badtrip ko sa mga nagpapaimbita, tapos iimbitahan mo, aallot mo ng space/table/budget tapos hindi pupunta.

binyag ni baby, 50 pax inexpect ko 30 lang pumunta lahat sa side ko.

sa side ni hubby yung immediate family lang nya dumating. !#!@&#@! na mga kamaganak nya yan. tapos yun pala umattend sa house celebration nila. sayang bayad ko sa 20 pax na di dumating!

i think it's kinda rude na treat mo silang horror guests just because wala silang dalang gift..and manghinayang ka na naging ninang sya ng anak mo, eh kinuha mo naman syang ninang because she's your friend and you trust her to take care of your baby.. be thankful that they came and celebrated the event with you.

I don't mind kung wala gift basta andun sila sa celebration kasi per head ang bayad mapa-restaurant o fastfood yan. Yung mga ninong nga ng babies ko, sapilitan pa na papuntahin kesyo nahihiya wala daw gift. Sabi ko naman okay lang talaga dahil sanay na kami. hehe. Nagpunta naman sila at may gift pa, 3 sila naghati-hati. mas natuwa pa ako dun keysa sa mga nagcommit tapos last minute di punta. Banned na sa mga next parties ko yun.

somehow, when attending celebrations, it is customary, to bring something for the celebrant as a sign of good gesture.

minsan, you get someone to be a sponsor, and you somehow expect that this person bring/give the inaanak something to remember the occasion.

on my end, mahihiya ako na tanggapin ang role to be a godparent, go to the binyag and reception, makikikain, tapos ni wala man lang akong maiwan na kahit ano para sa bata. that for me is very improper. konting delicasa naman.

kung ako din ang nang-imbita and that this scenario happened to me, i honestly would feel slightly bad. kasi, even a small note/card/letter, simply written with good intentions in lieu of monetary gift, will be greatly appreciated.

i'd honestly say na naiinis ako sa mga tao who has the gall to come to occasions para lang sa pagkain and those who act as if its the host's honor that they attended the party.

Kahit sabihin nating we don't really expect gifts, I know one way or another we do. It is really customary to give something back whenever you attend some occasions na alam mong pinagka-gastusan. I think, any gift, a note or a card would do. Dito nga sa Philippines kahit ano lang pwede na, sa ibang bansa nga mas matindi pa. Like sa US, when you attend any occasion kahit house party lang yan, you are expected to bring a gift mapa matanda or bata pa ang may birthday, even filipinos dun ganun din. Much more kung sa restos/venue ginawa na alam mong mahal ang per head, kadalasan you match it with an expensive give or a good sum of monetary gift.

Ako naman, last binyag, shempre alam ko who brought gifts and who didn't. Honestly, dun sa mga alam ko na ka-close naman and may capability to give a gift tapos ninong pa, medyo parang nagtamapo ako, not just because sa gift but more dun sa feeling na parang they took the occasion for granted. Para bang hindi man lang pinaghandaan or binigyan ng konting effort considering na okay naman yung venue, food and all. Pero dun sa mga taong kahit hindi godparents eh umeffort sa gift, honestly super nahihiya ako and nata-touch as well. They didnt give super expensive ones pero they've thought of my baby and gave her something, super nakaka touch yung ganun, and swerte ko mas marami yung ganun kesa dun nga sa isang "ninong" that I was talking about.

Pero mostly tama yung mga sisses natin here, mas okay pa sa akin na basta umattend ng party those who confirmed or those who you are expecting with or without gifts, kesa naman mapunta sa wala ang gastos. And for me, it's ok na mag exceed and pay for extra nalang kesa super aalog alog ang party ko :)

Kahit siguro ano gawin natin meron padin talagang guests na ganun talaga. Guest na kapal muks, PG, pa VIP etc.

Pero basta umattend talaga sana yun nagcommit sana marealize nila na pera din yun nilabas mo to spend for their headcount tapos di aattend. Mga ganyan guest di na nakakaulit sakin harapan ko talaga syang di iinvite kahit yun kilala nya invited if she will ask i will tell her pupunta kaba? hehe

Mas better siguro lets not expect too much on gifts kasi some people dont really give gifts or something. Well mga sis kesa naman magbigay ng gift di naman pwede magamit ng anak mo. Yun the best din. Madami ako nareceive na gift di ko alam bakit 4T ang size pag 4 yrs old e 2 yrs old ang anak ko kahit tantsahin nila pwede na nga nila isuot yun tshirt e. so ending mga next yr ko pa mapapasuot sa anak ko ayos!

I have suggestion pala on guest who dont RSVP. Di pa namin na try if effective meron na kaya nakatry nito? haha

Sa invites just out the date and time. Pero dont put the place. Just put, in big letters. Pls send your confirmation to ___________ by (date) to reserve a seat and get the info about the venue of the party

Ako naman ang practice naman, never kaming pumunta sa isang party ng walang gift, ibabaon ko na lang ang mukha ko sa semento kapag nangyari yun, LOL.

But, sa parties namin, hindi naman ako nag eexpect, pero ewan ko dati aaminin ko, nakakatampo pa din lalo na pag ka close mo eh walang dalang regalo, buti nga sana kung hindi ko kadikit, at kung hindi kayang bumili ng gift, maiintindihan ko pa.

Saka sa gift, hindi naman ako nagexpect ng mamahalin, kahit mumurahin yan, sabi nga its the thought that counts, diba, ang hinahanap mo lang ba eh naalala nilang bigyan ang birthday celebrant, na for me eh big deal yun, lalo na kung kadikit ko.

Oh well noon yun. Nasanay na rin ako, ngayon, may regalo o wala, hindi ko na ginagawang big deal, ang mahalaga nga eh nakarating sila sa party lalo na at kung malayo pinanggalingan nila :D



Natuto talaga akong mag pa confirm ng attendance, kasi nung 1st birthday ng anak ko, pang 200 yung food kasi yun ang ineexpect ko na bilang, grabe mga 70 lang dumating, lol, aalog alog kami sa party, laki ng venue, daming food, tapos ganun, super learned lesson ko yun, nadala ako noon, kaya talagang eto natutunan ko:

1. Maaga pa lang sinasabi ko na ang date, so may save the date ako kahit children's party lang, tapos 2 weeks before the party, paalala na naman by giving final invitation, tapos 3 days before the party, tinatawagan ko talaga isa isa yung mga hindi nag confirmed, I'd tell them straight, need ko malaman kung aattend ba sila or not.  --> eto talaga kung may save the date ka na, nag confirmed tapos hindi umattend, iisa lang ibig sabihin nun, hindi kayo mahalaga para sa kanya, so banned na siya sa next parties.

2. Hindi ako fan nung invites na kulang kulang ang details, parang feeling ko hindi lang tama, mas mabuting manghingi na lang ng confirmation, but the party details are all there.



Sa kultura kasi ng Pinoy, napakahirap mag say ng NO ang iba. They rather say yes sa confirmation, tapos hindi na lang aattend, akala nila mas magalang yung ginawa nila.  Hayy..

omg! sumakit ang ulo ko sa kakabasa ng horror stories niyo sa mga parties niyo. ganyan ba talaga mga pinoy? parang acceptable na no? pls. let's not accept this as 'pinoy culture'!

well, of course, i have my own share of horror stories pagdating diyan. hellooo, wedding ko. 3 tiers yung cake ko may satellite pa. aba, natapos lang ako magpapicture sa tabi ng cake eh biglang nagsisimulang nagdi-disappear yung satellite cakes! sisimulan kase ng isa. at ang makakita di patatalo kaya kukuha rin. at akala naman ng iba, eh giveaway nga! ano ba yan! parang gutom. maski mga kala mo respectable yung guests mo, ganun pa rin ang paguugali. my wedding was at manila hotel and ang invited ko ay akala ko may pinag-aralan. meron pang isa na nag-tip nang malaki sa waiter para lang ipag-tabi siya ng food!

pati yung mga centerpieces na flowers eh biglang nag-disappearing act! tama ba naman yun na aalis ka ng party may bitbit kang centerpiece?! palibhasa nanghihinayang sila na either itatapon lang o kesa mapunta sa iba eh mabuti sa kanila na lang mapunta.

hayyy....

^ sad to say sis, nasa kultura talaga ng Pinoy, nakakatuwa nga ang mga nasa ibang bansa like sa amerikano, ang NO sa kanila eh No talaga, ang Yes eh yes talaga.

Dito lang naman sa atin yung ang YES nila, eh pwede pa lang maging NO.

Kultura na sana eh mabago.

also had experienced din w/ my very own cousin, i invited her and hubby, christening ng eldest ko sa dad's..haiz, she has 3 kids kasi and she brought all the kids, ok sige, ok lang kasi pamangkins..but with their YAYAS! so 3 yayas were there..so all in all 8 sila, to think na we emphasized in our invitation "we have reserved 2 seats for you".. i didnt invite that cousin of mine sa christening ng youngest ko..

Sharing my own "horror stories":

1.) When we were planning our wedding, my then future MIL wanted to get one of her amigas as our ninang. When this lady accepted, she DEMANDED for apo to be part of the entourage as flower girl at this point palang na-off na ako kasi HELLO?! Close ba kami? Pero sige fine ibigay na. Then suddenly she demanded for her daughter to be part of the entourage! as in kapal! Kasi if we dont get daw the daughter & the grand daughter to be part of the ento, di narin sya mag-ni-ninang!!! Grrrrr! My MIL had no choice but to give in kasi close friend nya and ako I had to let it be sa kahihiyan ko sa MIL ko.

Day of the wedding ang bigay is 3K na gift, naman! I'm not materialistic pero pagkatapos mo mag-demand ng kung ano ano. Pinagkagastusan namin mga kapamilya nya tapos 3K lang bibigay nya? Eh gowns palang nung 2 is 6K each then per head ng food is P1500 each. Di naman nag-ku-kwenta pero it wouldn't have mattered sana if gusto ko sila eh kaso di mo na gusto, na-obligate ka pa tapos ganon lang naman pala ibibigay sayo.
