On Sunday I was the recipient of my very first shower, hosted by my family and co-workers from LADC. My wonderful mother Janet dreamed up a tacky-tourist theme for the day – complete with Leis, Filipino Food, Music and the appropriate island-themed decorations! This was no typical shower – guests engaged in a variety of activities including a treasure hunt around the building, scrapbook page-making (to be compiled for me) and the creation of a song which they serenaded me with later in the afternoon. Since Nick and I aren’t in need of traditional housewares, guests brought entertainment-related items like board games, Wii games and controllers and Itunes cards. All very useful for life in the Philippines! I couldn’t have planned a better shower myself – thanks to everyone involved!
