A birthday bash
Balloons, and caricatures of Dora, Spongebob, and a stage covered with the backdrop of a large castle and the sign “Zabrina Turns 2” decorated the Santa Clara Executive Village Club House for the birthday of the little lady.
Zabrina, or “Z,” Manaloto Trabasas, is the second child of Fritz and Marby Manaloto Trabasas. Her parents decided to come home for good. The 26 children aged 2 to 7 years, who attended the birthday celebration, also had their Moms and Dads and “Nanas” present.
The Manaloto family was in full force headed by grandparents Tony and Offie Manaloto and Cely Trabasas.
Tita Tray Alleje prepared the games for the children who received books, toys and choco bars as prizes. There was a halo-halo bar, chocolate fountain, different kinds of juices and Sorbetero ice cream in three flavors on the other side.
It was fun watching the kids trying to catch the “pabitin” – one dragon fish for the boys and the turtles for the girls, but, like in similar parties the “Nanas” were the ones reaching for the pabitins.
Special guest was Diday Reyes and balikbayan friends from San Francisco. The children all got giveaways from birthday girl Z.*
Remember: Throw your worries to the wind and let them fly to God. In the end, it is He alone who guides the wind to breeze joy and love back to you.
