My son Manuel attended their Junior Seniors Prom at the Novotel Hotel.
My sister celebrated her 39th birthday. She treated us to the breakfast buffet of Balay Dako in Tagaytay. They had a wide selection of breakfast food items and I enjoyed every morsel. Plus, there's the beautiful view. If you haven't tried Balay Dako's breakfast buffet I'm telling you, it's worth getting up early for.
I finally got to watch Les Miserables. This is my favorite musical of all times and it has been my dream since I was 17 years old (and that's a long way back) to watch it. My sister and I started listening to the songs and loving them when I was 15 or 16 years old. When I was 17 my dad started taking us to musical plays and that's when I started to wish Repertory Philippines could make another production of Les Miserables (They made one and I missed it because that was before I was interested in the play). I was also 17 when I read the novel and I fell in love with the book. Jean Valjean is my favorite character and Les Miserables is number one in my list of favorites. Reading the novel made me love the musical even more. It really reflected the emotions in the book. Except for Marius: I hate his character but the musical made him likable.

We celebrated Sofia's first birthday. Sofia's life, short though it was, was and still is a cause of great celebration and great joy for our family. You can read all about that in this post.
My Tootsieroll "graduated" from Junior High. I put the quotation marks because I am still not used to this K-12 system where the seniors in high school do not graduate but merely attend the Moving Up Ceremony. They are not called graduates but completers.

|We went to Four Seasons Hotpot and Buffet right after the Moving Up to celebrate my son's achievement. It was attended by his grandparents (my side), my sister and her family and his nanny who has been with us since he was in first grade.|
|And this little boy here was the reason I was not able to enjoy the buffet. He wanted to play with me ALL the time! He's my sister's son, my nephew and my godson.|
I am so proud of my son! He has brought me so much joy. He may not be perfect but he is God's perfect gift to me and I cannot ask for a better son. I thank God for His many blessings and for making the month of April such a blessed and beautiful month. It was indeed a joyful month for everyone.
