Yesterday, I got a pleasant surprise waiting for me at my office table. It was pink cardboard canister with the name QUEENIE printed in front. Inside is a pink linen scroll with wooden rollers on each end and a separate pink linen page, obviously trying out a “royale” theme.
Upon perusing through its contents, I found out that it is the invitation to the Baptismal of Manny Pacquiao’s daughter two-month old daughter, Queen Elizabeth! Wow!
The invitation states that Queen Elizabeth Pacquiao or “Queenie” will be “christened” or “baptized” at the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage Church on Sunday, February 22, 2009 at 10:00AM along with other babies in the parish.
The reception for the (what I heard) 1,000 or so invited guests will be held again at the KCC Mall of GenSan Events and Convention Center, the same venue for his birthday last December 2008.
The invitation however did not mention any dress code which is good since that I do not have to rent an ill-fitting tuxedo again! 🙂
I then checked the 2nd page of the invite which contains the names of the 48 godparents (!) of Queenie Pacquiao.
I looked for my name but sadly, it was not in the list which includes among others, a vice president (Noli De Castro), the AFP Chief of Staff (General Alex Yano), seven Senators including 3 Presidentiables (Villar, Legarda, Estrada, Revilla, Zubiri, Honasan and Escudero), a Tai-pan’s daughter (Robina Gokongwei-Pe), a famous TV & Radio personality (Korina Sanchez), Kapuso bigwigs (Wilma Galvante and Annette Gozon), a beauty and makeover Diva (Vicky Belo), an actor and former son-in-law of a former President (Philip Salvador), a political kingpin (Luis Chavit Singson), a PAGCOR Chair (Epraim Genuino), a mother of a beauty queen (Annabelle Rama), a governor (Sarangani’s Migz Dominguez), a member of the Congress (Monico Puentevella), wives of prominent politicians in Luzon, and even a former gambling lord (Charlie Ang)….. but no full-pledged BLOGGER!!????!
Oh well, better luck next time. I am sure Kumpareng Manny would want more kids every year anyway and by the time he rans out of famous people to get as godparents, I will be very famous by then. 🙂
But now, the next immediate question should be – what gift should somebody like Bariles give to Baby Queenie, the small royalty who has everything already?

Manny Pacquiao’s cocks not as spectacular…
The new dirt sheet Frontline.PH has a bombshell report on Manny Pacquiao’s gambling activities. The pound-for-pound king, who has previously said that he’d sworn off gambling and other vices, was alleged to have lost Php17 million during one cock…
post ka ng photos, KUYA AVEL… 🙂
apil na pud ang mga “bigwigs” nga nagpa-photo-op sa imo… jejeje… 🙂
🙂 yeah.. i do agree.. the party was well prepared and well managed.. inspite the fact that they only got two weeks to prepare..
thank goodness for my pink long-sleeve polo shirt… hehehehe may naisuot ako… hahahahaha! this time around, na-manage ko na ang expectations ko… after the disappointing birthday bash of pacman (na mukhang tinipid ang preparations) – queenie’s baptismal party was a sight to behold. talagang nagmukhang disneyland ang venue… magaling ang event management group na humawak nito… sarap din ang food. nasimot nga lang lahat ng balloons dahil pinagdadala ng mga bisita…

Itanong mo na lang kung ano ang brand ng gatas or diaper na gamit nung bata. Pihado ako, bibili at bibili sila Jinky at Manny nun.
So once na gatas or diaper ang bigay mo, definitely gagamitin yan. Di tulad ng mga stuff toys and malaman eh ilalagay lang sa cabinet.
