GrandBall 2011

My son CJ who is in grade 5 attended their grand ball last Friday. This event was actually intended for grade 5 and grade 6 students only, it's sort of JS Prom in Highschool. Of course, like any other stage mom, I am more excited than my son. I rented a suit for him and prepared everything. At 5pm I brought him to the salon near our place for his hair to be trimmed and styled. Believe me, he looked gorgeous in his suit like a true matinee idol (wink).

We arrived at the venue (Mar's Garden) past 6pm and the program started at exactly 7pm with cotillon dance from grade 5 followed by grade 6 students. The program was full of dance numbers, mostly, ballroom dance. Teachers also prepared dance numbers and I must say they were graceful, some rendered song numbers.

I did not leave my son all throughout the evening, except during dinner. I went outside and ate in Jollibee located few steps away from the venue and some parents did the same.

The program ended past 12 midnight. I saw my son enjoyed the event, he did table hopping to greet his classmates and schoolmates like it was his own party. He has become sociable and friendly.
