My new found hobby..

Taking pictures! I've enjoyed doing this for quite some time now but never really had the chance to buy a good camera. Anyhow, now that I have a digital camera along with me, i'll try to show you how I see things my way.=)

My Supplier Ratings for Missy and CJ's Rockstar Princess Birthday Party!

It's now time to share our feedback and supplier ratings for our two girls' birthday party held last Saturday. I just now realized na talagang wala atang perfect party. Meron at merong konting glitches at malilimutan..

Venue : 49th floor One San Miguel Ave. Bldg
Comment : Very nice place talaga for a party kse nice ang lighting esp ang view outside the bldg. Yung ibang guests pumunta pa talaga sa labas para mag picture-picture.=) BTW, may big poste tong venue na to bandang stage area, kaya to complement that, we told the caterer to situate the stage on the side across the entrance door. Normally kasi, stage is situated on the left side of the entrance door wall( if ganito setup the big poste will really block the stage). On the party picture, you won't even notice na may poste.
Rating : 5* kahit may mahiwagang poste hehehe
Peso power : Free if your order at their caterer is 15k up kaya ours was free

Caterer : Baby Nathan's Catering (official caterer of OSMA Bldg.)
Comment : Sarap sarap ng foods! All guests din were satisfied sa food kaya thumbs up ako dito. Wala na akong fave kasi lahat talaga masarap :) Kasama sa freebie ng catering ang floral centerpieces kaso hindi na ko nagpalagay ng floral centerpieces kse may balloon centerpiece na kasama yung package na nakuha ko sa Party Boosters. Sayang lang kasi hindi pumayag yung caterer na gumawa ng ilang floral decor sa dessert buffet area instead of those floral centerpiece sa table..
Rating : 4* dahil sa hindi napagbigyang floral decors sa dessert buffet :(
Peso Power : 23,800 (260 per head sa adults and 100 per head sa kids)

Balloon Decorator/Venue Dress-up : Party Boosters c/o Jacque (n@wie)
Comment : The best talaga ang Party Booster sa akin. Always superb ang rating ko every time i see them setup parties na kine-cater namin. Mababait din ang staff ni Jacque and helpful. Tinulungan pa ko ng isang staff sa paglagay ng cupcakes sa tower, at mga brownies at mini cupcake sa dessert buffet :) All guests were raving about the beautiful colors of the balloons and the rosset balloon table centerpieces. Nai-uwi pa namin yung mga pillars at nilalaro pa rin til today ng mga girls ko.hehehe
Rating : 5*
Peso Power : 5,500 (balloon pilars, balloon bursts, table centerpieces, and balloonderitas).

Side Entertainment : Arts n Faces c/o Liby (face painting and hair salon)
Comments : Madali kausap at mabait si Ms. Liby. The best yung mga staff na binigay nya sakin. Ang galing talaga ng pag tatoo nila. Luv luv ko rin yung setup ng hair salon nila with the big mirror na may lights, barbie head model, hair color sprays, hair pins, etc. everyone enjoyed this area talga. Sulit na sulit din every penny ko sa kanila. If we have another party, sila pa rin kukunin ko.hehehe
Rating : 5*
Peso Power : 3,800 (promo rate nila :)

Host/Magician with Side kick and Balloon twisting : Boogie n Friends
Comments : Na-disappoint ako dito sa supplier na to. I was hoping to see kuya Boogie mismo kasi sa mga bnf hosts, siya lang talga ang type namin maghost. I always tell grace (yung nakakausap ko sa contact number nila) na si kuya Boogie ang gusto namin. Even on the email i
sent them, i always tell them na si kuya boogie..umooo naman si grace pero hindi pala si boogie ang ipoprovide. They provided a host na long hair like boogie pero walang quality ang hosting. Pure tagalog, may mga palpak na magic, parang hindi coordinated ang program, mejo
hindi alam magencourage ng kids na sumali sa games..basta i was not satisfied. Quite helpful naman ung side kick sakin pero siyempre yung hosting ang importante sa program..
Rating : 3* for coming early, making the guests laugh on some acts, and for the helpful sidekick

Additional Comment (after seeing the pictures) : I guess hindi lang na-meet ng host na pinadala yung standard na hinahanap ko sa host. If it was Boogie talga, im sure I won't have anything to say kasi we were all the while expecting him. Lagi kse kami nasa birthday parties kaya we know kung ano ang meaning ng isang magaling na host. Lesson learned ko lang is next time choose a host na siya rin ang contact person, hindi yung parang companya ang kinakausap.
Peso Power : 3,000

Photographer : Mediamonsters c/o Lisa
Comments : They came in just in time na magsisimula pa lang yung party. I was happy kasi she came with a backup photographer which i did not expect kasi i know sa package na kinuha ko one photographer lang ang kasama. Tapos happy happy din ako kse may kasamang freebie ang nakuha namin. Hope the pictures turn out great!
Rating : 5* as of the moment kse dko pa nakikita ang output
Peso power : 3,500

Dessert buffet : My Chocolate Heaven (DIY ko ulit)
Comments : Hiniwalay ko to kase lower irerate ko sa sarili ko..I left the dessert treat labels sa house and due to time constraints (kasi nga its our party), i was not able to put the cream cheese frosting on the mini cupcakes. Nice raves pa rin naman ang guests sa taste.. sarap daw lahat esp yung brownies na may mint (that's Creme de Menthe..wala nga kasing label hehehe), Lemon Mini Cupcakes, Cake pops, at Cheesecake Brownies. So happy na rin to hear that :)
Rating : 4* dahil sa kulang na details
Peso power : DIY again. Pero if costing based from our rates its 5,500+ (70pcs mini cupcakes, 40 pcs cake pops, 3doz cheesecake brownies, 3doz creme de mente brownies, 1 customized silver package chocolate fountain setup, assortment of yema, pastillas, and polvorons

AVP : DIY ni mommy and c/o tito dop (bro ko)
