50 Celebrating 50

Last night, I was fetched and heard mass in the nearby church.

Then we prayed the rosary going to Dasmariñas Village.

We attended a party of Maryknollers who have turned 50 or are turning 50. It was a great success. There were almost 50 who attended.

Someone led the prayer. Food was by Vicky Pimentel. I had fettucine carbonara, fish fillet, beef, chicken, salad, potatoes, and fruits. I didn't touch the sweet desserts.

We each had a cupcake and blew our candle.

We had a trivia game prepared by Min Quimson. Questions include:

1) Who was the president in 1960? (answer: Garcia)
2) Who are the members of the Apat na Sikat?
3) Name at least 2 love teams in D Sensation.
4) What was invented in 1974 that we use everyday at work. (answer: Post-It)
5) Who was the original chop-chop lady? (Lucila Lalu, everybody got the answer)
6) What was the most successful Filipino composition? (Anak)
7) What was the hometown of Ms. Jimenea?
8) What was the favorite expression of Sr. Miriam Jose?

And of course, lots of picture-taking!

Thanks to Chris Salinas-Manzano for hosting the party. Funny, she told her parents that we will hold the celebration in their house only the night before.

There were no dinner fees. But a collection was done to help one of us who has cancer which has spread to different parts of her body.

God bless us all!
