BlauEarth and Co. got invited to a red egg and ginger party — not a traditional Chinese baby’s first month celebration, but a baby’s first birthday party with all the details of a red egg and ginger party complete with a performing magician.
Upon seeing the transformation of the always beautifully lit Sierra Madre Ballroom of the Fort Ilocandia, I definitely had to ask permission, from young couple Bryan and Jojami Alcid, if I could take photos of Hunter Daphne’s First Birthday, and share them with you, guys. They were cool about it. Thanks, Jo and Bryan. If I may add, Jo throws the most unique and well-planned themed parties in Sunshine City Laoag.
Jo brought home the authentic Chinese miniature paper lanterns, fortune cookies and take out boxes from her recent California trip.
A grand lauriat dinner prepared by the Fort Ilocandia’s Chinese chefs was the highlight of the party.
Family and friends of the fashionable Alcid couple had a memorable evening. If there’s one thing I noticed about the Chinese and Filpinos, it’s the close family ties. The Alcid clan were in full force.
Again, my congratulations and warm wishes!
An old Chinese quote — “The older the ginger the hotter the spice.”
