My pregnancy journal – Preparing a Baby Shower

I’m torn if I’ll have my baby shower or not because of limited budget as we saves for my upcoming child birth. But thinking it many times, I figure out that having a baby shower will save me from buying baby clothes and things she needs when she delivered. And I will enjoy this moment with my friends right!!! =)


1. Venue & Food

Luckily, I discovered a great deal with

baby shower venue

The deal is 4-hour KTV package for 20 persons with meals + swimming pool (additional 100/pax)

OR other KTV bar within Mandaluyong for accessibility like Chicago, Platinum, Elbow Room, Pelanji, Etc…
