Our son Kulay’s Baptism was postponed a few times until we arrived at the perfect date. We planned to have Kulay baptized after his 1st month on the feast of Sto. Nino (Jan.16) but due to some budget constraints we had it moved to May. May 8 was the original choice but again due to Pacquiao-Mosley fight (which gave me another reason to hate Pacman) we moved it to May 1. May 1 is the feast of
the parish worker, coincidentally the church that we chose since it’s nearest to us. May 1 is also the beatification of Pope John Paul II. Thus for us it was the perfect date to have Kulay baptized. St. Joseph
After the ceremony we had our reception at the Taste of Malaysia located at Jetti Bloomfields Lanang or in front of the ongoing construction for SM North. We chose the place because again it is near and they offered a very reasonable package(P99 buffet with Iced Tea). The lunch ended at around 2pm and when we got home I got busy opening gifts…the part which I love the most :D
Here are more details on kulay’s baptism.
It seems to be a requirement now for every party to have a Tarpaulin so we made one. We had a photoshoot of Kulay wearing only a bowtie which I think looks very cute and had it printed.
I’ve decided a long time before that we wouldn’t wear the usual white outfit. I wanted kulay to wear a vest and bowtie thus I had it tailor made. Bowtie again.. I had this fixation on bowties at this point in my life :)
It took a long time for me to decide whether to have a cake or not and I decided to have one on the last minute which stressed the maker but the cake turned out exactly as I want it.
All in all Kulay’s baptism was a success and most important he is now a Christian at 4 months and 28 days(He's turning 5 months on May 3).
