Sage and Ayheen's Party

Dear Sage, Just before your party started, your Lola Letty suggested that you write the opening prayer. You immediately looked for a paper and grabbed the first working felt tipped pen you could get your hands on and wrote a letter to God. Then, you surprised us by leading the prayer yourself.

We’re so proud.

And then, just before the start of the magic show, you asked the magician/emcee to give you the microphone so that you could sing for your cousins, classmates and friends. The first one was “Yesterday’s Dream”. A couple of your classmates in the audience acted out the lyrics of the song while you performed on stage. The second was “Sing.” You even invited Sabine to go onstage with you to sing her favorite song, “Life is a Highway” from the movie “Cars.”

This was unrehearsed. Although we had an inkling that you were psyching yourself up to sing on your birthday.


Your party served as a double celebration for you and Mommy. Just a day before it she passed the Oral and Written exams for the Board of Nephrology given by the Philippine Society of Nephrologists-- despite of all the distractions from being a Wife, Mother, Homemaker, Physician.

She’s really amazing.

That’s why I tell everyone,

“Yang asawa ko talaga, hindi lang pang kama.”


Dear Ayheen, This song’s for you, Sexy….

… One mile to every inch
your skin like porcelain
one pair of candy lips
and your bubble gum tongue.

And if you want love
We’ll make it.
Swimming a deep sea of blankets
Take all your big plans
And Break ‘em
This is bound to be a while.

Your Body is a Wonderland
Your Body is a Wonder
(I’ll use my hands)
Your Body is a Wonderland

Something ‘bout the
Way your hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take
when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go
And though I might leave to find it
I’ll never let your head
Hit the bed
without my hand behind it…

…Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you’re mine
all mine, ALL MINE
But you look so good it hurts

Your Body is a WONDERLAND
