First Of May

My birthday celebration was a blast. I didn’t have a grand party nor a birthday travel getaway. My contentment and happiness came from the presence of the people closest to my heart – my super mom and dad, brothers, aunties, cousins and my grandma.

To those who personally know me, I’m very family-oriented. I will never trade the time I spend with my family most especially when it’s my birthday to a night laughing out loud with friends or visiting a new and exciting place without them. This was mainly the reason why I never opted to travel with my husband and daughter on my natal day. I will probably consider this option when I have the means to travel with my parents and siblings. Hopefully, soon!

We had a simple dinner in my grandma’s house in Antipolo.

Dinner: Pancit Bihon and Hototay Guisado from Luyong, Crispy Pata from Barrio Fiesta,Β  Kare-kare : my grandma’s specialty. For dessert, we had Nestle ice cream, Banoffee Pie from Banapple and freshly picked indian mangoes from my grandma’s backyard. The pork sinigang was our lunch here at home cooked by my mother-in-law and the Pizza Hut was my treat for our mini-bus drivers.

Before heading to my grandma’s house for dinner, my husband and I together with our daughter, Keisha, went first to EDSA Shangri-la Mall to check if they have usb microphone from musicians friend since I have been so engrossed with music lately.

Here’s a collage of my photos. I can truly say that at my age, I’m one happy girl! I still call myself as such, since I know I still have a lot of things to learn and growing up to make. I’m always grateful for the exceptional support system that I have – my parents, most especially my mom who’s always there for me, my ever-supportive and loving husband, my three brothers, my understanding in-laws and my relatives. Above all, I’m thankful for the smart and charming little girl that I have.
