My day started at exactly 6:14 as I woke up with a text coming from a thousand miles. The greetings made me feel extra special to think that someone remembers my birthday despite the time difference and distance. The next few hours were hectic for me, tending to my children who happened to have school events that day. I sent my younger daughter to school, picked her up and cooked in between. By 10 o'clock, I hurried myself to my older daughter's school for first quarter Parent Teacher Conference. I left my phone at home and when I came back I already have several missed calls coming from my friends who texted me they're coming for my birthday. I was touched by their plan but I told them I haven't prepared and only cooked caldereta using a kilo and half pork from the fridge. I didn't expect they're coming. Joy came with a red ribbon cake coming from Jes, the Texas Girl aherm Arkansas. Our dear friend Jes is from Arkansas and not from Texas. Teehee. You are the bestest for all the effort you exerted, seriously! Thank you so much guys for coming, Jing, Beds and Lyn also for the food. Thank you Joy for the red wine and your helpful advice to take a shot before hitting the sack. I hope we're complete in the next event. Jes, of course is on the other side of the planet but it could be possible online only if she's not sleeping at 6am when we placed a video call.

If you think that I look thin here, don't be deceived for I shrunk and hid myself in between these awesome ladies.
I thought my day would be a simple one but you just made it extra special.
I couldn't imagine how the food became adequate. I wasn't prepared at
all. I promise to cook more next
time, hopefully for the next birthdays or whatever event we could
make for another get together party. These ladies left the table at mess. Teehee. Kidding. These were taken for photo ops only. Do I sound defensive here? Lol. I am afraid these ladies lose their poise and style once this photo spreads out in world wide web. Haha. Anyways, your identities are safe with me, covered with the packed left overs. Lol.
Thank you guys for coming despite my advisory of a "No Parking" zone area in our community. You all made your own way somewhere in between the corner of crowded parked cars.
Thank you all who greeted on my birthday.
Thank God for another blissful year of my life.

We really had a good time! John was "kuleting" me about giving you a surprise visit. Prior months before your birthday, he'd say you should visit Nora at her place, sya nga pumunta sa mag houses nyo e. Love ka ng boyfriend ko. Cool ka daw e, at mabait. Talaga ba?ReplyDelete
