STORY | I'm Another Year Wiser

March 1. My birthday!

Having balloons and celebrating it with friends and family was quite a blast. I never really get to have a birthday party growing up. So, the thought of being able to host your own celebration got me pretty excited. Yeah, I get giddy over little things. 

It's time to bring out the big balloons

Colorful. That's how a lot of people describe my personality. True enough, I love colors! So, it isn't a surprise that I pulled out a colorful dress from forever21 to dress for the occasion. 

Smiling at the world!
I sort of color coordinate with this door. LOL.

After a heartfelt prayer lead by our resident minister, I couldn't wipe off the smile on my face when they all sang at the top of their lungs "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!" My aunt cooked my favorite afternoon snack --- Sopas (Filipino Macaroni Soup), paired with fried chicken and fish. And I get make a wish blow out a single candle on my blueberry cheesecake!! (Last time I remembered doing that was when I was in grade school!) Guess there's a kid in all of us, huh?

Friends and relatives!
The gathering was simple but so much fun! I also wasn't expecting a surprise dinner prepared by my two besties, Paolo and Lincoln. We went to this awesome Korean restaurant, Gang Nam Style in Makati. They bought me more balloons, cake and a box of donuts. Whoa! Talk about food coma!

The three stooges ;-D
Hoarding the appetizers. LOL.
I want mine crunchy, please!

My tank was so full that I craved for tea to detox. Haha. This was one unforgettable birthday. I am truly blessed to love and be loved. I cannot wait to face the challenging days ahead. Thanks to all the special people in my life who support me no matter what and encourage me to stay strong. I love you all!
