Graduation Parties

Our daughter will just enter kinder garden school but I am starting to get curious how would it be to have a graduating child. So when a good friend Ate Agnes invited us for their son's HS graduation party, we did attend.
Ate Agnes is dear to us because she is one of EJ's godmother so I did not hesitate to help barbecuing when we arrived at the venue.
Goodluck to your new journey Ross.
A photo of mareng Raquel (5 months preggo), me, and Ate Agnes's sister, Norie. We are all bicolanas so we had so much fun talking to each other.
They had a graduation piƱata which they did after the chow time. Too bad my kids weren't to my FIL already so they weren't able to participate.
The BBQ lady lol.
Two days after that, we also attended to the graduation party of our neighbor's daughter. They are pretty nice neighbor so we can't say no.
With the two graduation parties that we attended, I can say that it's a tough job for parents over here. I learned that, when you attend a party, you don't need to bring a gift, you just hand out card with cash in it. I find it really practical that they do that as it will help the student a jump start to their college fund.

Cash is better too as you stated, kids can use it for their tuition! Good idea really! Oh and fun gatherings with lotsa food no? Yummy!

Yes if the neighbor is nice it's really hard to say no. I agree with that sis.

Mel Alarilla said...

Iba nga ang kustombre nila ano, cash sa envelope instead of gifts ang binibigay sa nag graduate. Parang yung pagbibigay nang ang pao nang mga intsik kapag New Year. Binibigyan nila nang pulang envelope na me lamang pera ang gusto nilang regaluhan. Ang ganda naman nang mga pose ninyong magiina, halatang sanay sa kodakan, lol. Mabuti nga yung nakaka attend kayo nang graduation parties para alam nyo na ang gagawin kung kayo naman ang magdaraos nito para sa inyong anak. Thanks for the happy post. God bless you all always.

I like your blog,... nice post keep blogging...

josie said...

it's just being practical, if you bring gifts and the receiver have no use for them, sayang lang. With the cash they can buy what is needed. hello rose, hope you can visit my new site @ www.josiesfiles.com

Ralph said...

The graduations will start flying by - the first is the hardest even if they have not yet grown up...we had a few, pre-school. middle school, high school and now college. It can fly by. At least this ceremony had plenty of good eats!

Carletta said...

Your little ones will be graduating before you know it Rose. :) The time goes faster than we want it to.
Lovely gatherings of celebration!
Congrats to the graduates.

Jim said...

Rose, can I call you a party animal? It looks like you were having a good time and good eats.

I think you may have a graduation earlier than high school. Kids do it now for kindergarten and even prekindergarten. And for grade school and from junior high. Hang in there!

Happy RT!

Beautiful cake.

Manang Kim said...

Yup Mommy Rose it's a real work pag mag graduate na dito sila nang high school. Since I arrived here in MI di ko na mabilang ang open house na na-attend ko because DH comes from a huge family. This year I am going to three open houses. Happy Tuesday!

Looks like a great party. Congratulations to the graduate.

Felisol said...

Never heard of graduation parties before. But then I'm from another culture.
Sounds sensible to give money to a students.
Education is expensive all over the world.
Now you know h how to do it when your little girlie is leaving home.
I can only promise you, time flies.
