Aika's Baptism!


Aika's Baptism!

This post is 3 months overdue! Well, Hello World again. I’m here to write about what happened to my daughters Baptismal Ceremony.

It was March 4, 2012 when Baby Aika has been baptized and entered the Christian World. So, what had happened?
Shrine of Jesus, MOA

Church:  Shrine of Jesus, The Way The Truth and The Life.
There is a certain baptismal hall at the side of the church. Our schedule was 11:30am - 12:00 noon. We were there early and so were the Godmothers and Godfathers. The ceremony was solemn since the baptismal hall was closed. There was no seminar prior to the ceremony but the priest explained everything about why we need to baptize our baby and etc. It was quick yet memorable for us. After the picture taking, we proceeded to Shakey’s Blue Wave for lunch.




Reception:  Shakey’s Blue Wave.
At first I thought the venue was small for 70 persons but luckily it was just enough and I’m not so sure how many pax have attended. When we got there, we found all the other hungry guests waiting for us and excited to see baby Aika. I checked the balloons and yes they were properly arranged. The cake was delivered on time and also giveaways are piled in one corner. We started with a prayer and lunch was served.

We spent 2 hours in the reception venue and I think it was just enough because we only have to eat and chitchat. The staffs and crew were accommodating especially the manager (I forgot the name). The food was great and we happened to take home MORE pizza, chicken and spaghetti. Some of our guests were not able to come so the food was overflowing.

Balloons:  DIY. We bought all the materials at Divisoria. Thanks to my family who helped with the balloons.

Cake:  I got it from PH Bakehouse. I just found her on Facebook. A cake with cupcakes.  One word - Delicious!


Aika’s  Outfit – Her white Dress and shoes was bought at SM Makati. The second outfit was from Divisoria ;)

Invites - I just made an online version of it. Here it is!

Giveaways:  We went to Divisoria and found cute pink cradle figurine with a clock attached on it but we got lost at 168 Mall and were not able to see the store again so we ended up at LandMark Makati and bought pink figurines or a sort of container..etc. See pic below.

 












Tarpaulin:  Another Do-it-yourself masterpiece of mine. Haha! We also have it printed at Divisoria Mall.
Not a good shot of the tarpaulin because it was hanged by the window
Van:  We found a Van for rent at Sulit.com.ph. The driver was nice and we even gave him a Big Box of pizza (from our take home left over). We rented it for two days.

Since my family was complete, we have also decided to do a House Blessing the day before Aikas Baptism.

It was the busiest but one of happiest moment of my life, and one of Aika's milestones as well.
