My Birthday Celebration
Tuesday, 3rd of February was my birthday!!! My apologies for the late posting, I just have my blog recently. I always look forward to my special day. It's a day to celebrate God's gift of life. My family in the philippines were the first to greet me on my special day. I got warm voice call, text messages and emails from them and friends back home.
I just celebrated my birthday simply at the hostel. My friends at work helped me cook the food. They voluntered what dishes and desserts they would cook. I just provided money on what to buy for food menu. The food was delicious all- filipino dishes like kalderetang kambing, (goat) beefstakes, sotanghon mixed with bam-i, (for long life they say) sauteed shrimps, pork and chicken adobo and lechon manok. For desserts, we had spaghetti, chocolate cake, macaroni salad, leche flan, fresh fruit salad, maja blanca and cassava cake. The drinks were cold and refreshing.
After dinner, we spent the rest of the night with videoke singing, dancing, laughing and talking.
My friends gifted me with a shirt, scented candles, victoria's secret pear glace body mist, and a cute stuff toy.
I had a fantastic birthday. It was a simple celebration yet it was nice to all of my friends and colleagues at work enjoying the party. To my friends and family, thank you so much for making my birthday wonderful. I hope to return the favor on your birthday as well.
