Happy Birthday, PD!!!

A couple of years ago,  PD was telling some of her beading students that the end of the world will be on December 21, 2012 and that she will not be able to celebrate her birthday anymore which falls on the 23rd.

Her student, Tita Zamora said, she does not believe it will happen and to prove that the world will not end, she will host a birthday lunch for PD after 12-21-12.

The world did not end!!!

And as promised, Mrs. Zamora hosted a birthday lunch at their lovely home.  It was just a relaxed and casual affair.

PD invited some of her old and current students.

She also invited our "lunch group" who were also her students.

We were supposed to have our yearly celebration on December 22 but PD asked them to join the lunch instead.

We were serenaded by former members of the Kundirana.

One of the singers, Dennis, is the son of Mrs. Zamora.

They dedicated a song to her and it was very moving and touching.

I doubt there was a dry eye in the room afterwards!

PD prepared a short "speech" to show her appreciation.  Just last week, she was having a dilema...she does not know what to give her host as a thank-you gift.  Mrs. Nena Yulo dropped by her house a few days ago and PD asked her, "What do you give someone who has everything?  Not just everything but the best of everything?"  Mrs. Yulo promptly answered .... "A mass card, that was what Mely Hechanova gave her friends last year."

Mrs. Zamora has been taking lessons from PD for several years already.  She is one of her most creative students and her finished products are always exceptional.

PD presented Mrs. Zamora with a big  frame which has a few pictures of her in class and in the center, it says.... "Tita Zamora - Class Summa Cum Laude"

Bing Blardony and Tita Zamora

And lastly ..... A 2012 Musical Christmas Globe ....

For Mrs. Zamora to remember that on December 22, 2012 ..... she made one person very, very happy and the rest of her guests!

To quote Beanie, Julie Yap Daza's 8 year-old granddaughter ..... PD said at the end.... "Best Day Ever!"
