A few Saturdays ago, almost our whole day was spent for J’s checkup. When we got home that night, while saying good night to Jia, I realized that with the super hectic schedule of the past few weeks, we needed to spend time with her. 🙁 Because of this, despite all the things that J and I needed to finish, we promised to spend time the whole Sunday with her and Joya. 🙂 Jia wanted to go to Gymboree but when I told J that I needed to give something to Abie, he declared that we would go to Sip n Gogh instead. Yehey for me! I have wanted to try that place since last year.
Sip n Gogh is in Capitol Hills (the same building as Stacy’s). It is a paint and sip studio. According to the teacher assigned to us, it is owned by 3 couple-friends who just thought of putting up a place where one can drink and paint at the same time. I called ahead to secure a slot and luckily they had two available for Jia and me.
When we got there, Jia and I were asked to choose the painting that we wanted to paint from their gallery. Jia chose a painting of a house with balloons (ala Up) while J chose Van Gogh’s Starry Night for me. Eh ambisyosa ako so akala ko kayang kaya ko! Hahahaha!
The fee per person is Php1,000.00 (Sunday rate). That includes canvass, paint, guidance from a teacher, a drink, and pica pica. Teacher Che was the one assigned to Jia and me. She asked Jia if she wanted a small or a big canvass and then gave her the paint and the brushes. For kids, the teacher would draw the figure with a pencil and ask the kid to paint it. Jia chose the color for the house. She had a really grand time!
As for me, I was given my supplies and was just told what colors to use and how to do the brush strokes. I really just wanted to copy Van Gogh’s painting… Magaling nga kasi ako! Lol!
Ang saya mag paint!
While Jia and I were bonding over painting, J and Joya bonded on their own. They walked and walked around, had nuts and juice, coffee and cake, and basically also had a really great time! Sabi ni J, para daw silang magka kumpare na umiinom at namumulutan. Hahahaha!!
Jia was able to finish her painting and was mighty proud of it!
Ako? Hindi ko natapos! Hahaha! J was pressuring me to finish. Overtime na daw ako. The painting that, I just had to remind him, HE chose for me was sooo hard! Ending, the teacher told us that I can come back to work on it again. Hahahaha! Kakahiya!
That night, when J and I were talking before going to bed, we realize we are so blessed to have two wonderful kids and to have the time to spend with them. Salamat po, Lord.
