Spell Saab

I had arguably the best bachelorette party ever. The only request I had was to forego a male stripper because it would just make me very uncomfortable. Not because I’m a prude who can’t poke fun at sexual things but because I know for a fact everybody is just going to laugh and go “yuck” at the stripper and kawawa naman, diba?!?

My friend Cholo made a very good point months ago when I brought this up. I said I really didn’t want anything wild and just wanted to relax with my girl friends. He said that the point of a bachelor/bachelorette party was to go really hard as a motherfff to the point that you will wake up the next morning being so OVER the whole wild phase and thanking your lucky stars for your betrothed. It made sense so I was already game for anything. Maxx, my maid of honor, told me to block off December 17 for the party and wear pink.

Lauren picked me up that night and we passed by for Candy. Wait, mag-kwento lang ako nang mabilis: the original plan was for me to pick up Candy and we’d go together. Candy called me up and asked, “Are you driving later? Because I need to blindfold you as soon as you pick me up.” HAHAHA. So tawang tawa ako kasi anong plano niya kung magddrive nga ako?! Haha! Buti nalang Lauren finished taping early so she could pick us both up :))

So there I was, blindfolded in the car, ready to have a good night of fun with my girls!

I’d never been blindfolded before and once I got out of the car, I was kind of freaking out. Hahaha. They allowed me to peek a little bit at the ground because I was walking so slow haha. Once we got to the elevator though, I was led straight to a room where Adrianne put a sash and headband on me before I took my blindfold off! Once I took it off, they all shouted BOO, YOU WHORE! and popped some confetti!!!

OMG IT WAS A MEAN GIRLS THEMED PARTY!!!

boo you whore

First things first, group photo!!

Sobrang tinakpan ni Candy si ate Mia! Haha!

Sa sobrang career ni Maxx about the theme, it was held on a Wednesday because..

on-wednesdays-we-wear-pink

I think Martin was going for Janis Ian, DYKE. Hahaha! So I was given a tour to better appreciate the effort that went into throwing such a fabulous party.

Maxx borrowed our cute little chalkboard from our Antipolo home (see: Arkin and Clara’s names scribbled all over it! Cute!) to write down the night’s program

It pays to have a brilliant artist friend so she can make an amazing sign with only a day’s notice!!

You can’t sit with us!! Megan was sick (OR SO SHE SAYS haha umover sa BOO YOU WHORE na theme?!) so she couldn’t make it

The first part of the program was called AARON SAMUELS. They made it seem like they were bringing out a stripper from the 2nd room, we were all pretty stressed about it!! Nyko said, “since the Mean Girls had Aaron Samuels, we also have a boy for you tonight. He’s tall, white, handsome…” And then Lauren came out holding an Aaron Samuels poster!! Hahahaha! They put a bull’s eye on his thingy and Nyko gave us all pixelated pink penises (Japanese daw kaya pixelated haha).

What the…

They picked out 5 girls (including myself) to pin the penis on the poster

DSC04162 DSC04163 DSC04168

The closest pin to the bull’s eye would win and not have to take a shot of tequila.

My friend AJ won so the rest of us had to take shots haha

In classic Mean Girls fashion, we had to make out with hotdogs in order to cross out the next part of the program: “HOT” Body

I will not post any more photos from this game because they are not very flattering and the other girls will kill me hahaha. ANYWAY, I won the game haha. Basta pagkain, gowww!

Losers take shots!

DSC04218

My guests were truly an ARMY OF SKANKS because they really set out to get me drunk with the next game. We had a “POP quiz” where I had to pop condoms with questions inside.

DSC04223

They asked Jim all 15 questions and I had to give the same exact answer or else I’d have to take a shot. Otherwise, the rest of my guests would drink.

This game kind of killed me because ang hirap ng questions and grabe sila ka-sama!! For example, one question was Where did you meet? and I said ATENEO CAFETERIA. Can you believe they forced me to drink because Jim said ATENEO CAMPUS. Hahaha NAKAKAINIS. Lauren admitted to me that she was giving me double shots all along so yes of course I got VERY drunk but I don’t regret it because it was my bachelorette party and it was an amazing send off!!

My ate Unna is my Matron of Honor but couldn’t make it because she’s pregnant! She made me a BURN BOOK instead. A scrap book full of photos of my girl friends with messages beside each photo. SO SWEET!!!!!! I love it so much!!

The rest of the night was for dancing, eating, and laughing!!

I know I’ll never have a bachelorette party again but girls’ nights out are something I definitely missed! Will be sure to make time for these guys even when I’m already married xxx

MERRY CHRISTMAS, GUYS!

P.S. Maxx, Lauren, Iya, Marquis and I slept over. The next day when we were leaving, the bell boy carried the chalkboard across the street in Makati with a huge penis drawn on it. HAHA. It was too late when we realized it. Kakahiya but OH WELL. Ang saya!! I encourage you to have your own Mean Girls inspired party!:)

    Hi Saab!!! Super fun ng bachelorette party mo! I hope I have a bachelorette party as fun as that in the future (hoping and praying).

    Anyway, what’s the difference between a maid of honor and a matron of honor? Or are they the same?

    Can’t believe you’re already getting married! Been following you since the Incu girl days.. I feel old. Haha. Happy for youuu! <3

    P.S. You've mentioned that you post process your photos using Lightroom. I just wanna ask, what filter or how do you edit them to achieve the effect/color your photos have? Thank you!

      I usually just slide the temperature button to the left (cooler, more blue hues) and just play around with exposure, contrast, etc.
