Before I forgot

By on August 2, 2011

My mother just celebrated her birthday last Saturday, July 30 and I hope we made her happy on her special day.

Mama with Xari.. Bagong ligo na yan. haha

Remember my post about Adam’s and my mom’s birthdays and what birthday gift can I give to them? Yes, that one. Well, nobody cared to help me on that. Haha! But it’s okay. I managed to give my mom three white roses and a polo that didn’t fit her. That sucks really, especially that it have to belong to my 8 year old little sister yet again. I’m really not that good in sizes and assumptions. But I know she loved it. 🙂 I even waited for the night market because I don’t have enough money to buy expensive clothes. The real reason why I went home late not the school project. So ma, if you’re reading this. I’m sorry I lied. 🙂

And the roses, I know she’s touched. Haha. My epic plan to surprise her with the flowers was close to “epic fail-ness” but thank God the curtains of their room blocked my actions outside so I was able to leave the flowers there and at 4am I think, I watched her silhouette as she gets the flowers in the rack in front of their room (I slept in there because I’m such a coward kid who can’t sleep alone in her bed). She called my papa and I’m sure she bragged about it to him. Haha!

simple gifts from us to Mama

When I woke up, it was 11am, the curtains were all up and I can see from where i was lying Marxi in the sala watching Phineas and Ferb. I called and asked her to give my gift to mama (the sleepiness was just my front, I actually was shy to give the gift to her).

I stood up at 12pm and greeted her a happy birthday. Being the humble one as she is, she just said, “Tinipid mo na naman sarili mo ha. Kung ano ano na naman binili mo.” And I know that’s just her way of saying “Thank you.” to me.

Too bad I don’t know how to cook so unlike other teens, I din’t get the chance to help her in the kitchen. #ThatAwkwardMoment when you’re cooking for your own birthday celebration. 🙂 But I made the barbecue sauce!

Yes. I made that barbecue sauce like a boss!

Bea brought a cake, I don’t know the flavor but it tastes like coffee. That girl is such a coffee-lover. Haha! We also had chocolate Red Ribbon cake and the strawberry ice cream which only Marxi likes and this Selecta ice cream with marsh mallows and chocolate bits. Whatever its flavor is. We ate and I washed the dishes for the whole day, without being asked to do it. Yeah!

Bea's cake got to be eaten first. 🙂 and Marxi made a cake for mama, that one in the plate.. haha

My Birthday 2011

By on March 31, 2011

After a blog post about our pet Princess dying, here I am writing about what happened on my birthday last march 27. Sorry, I should have posted this earlier but we do not have internet that day so yeah.

I woke up at around 1pm that day. Actually, I don’t want to wake up yet but my little sister keep on waking me up and even scared me that I will never be able to taste all of the foods that mother prepared.

Well, there never really is a lot of food. I’m 19 so I don’t actually anticipate that much about parties anymore. I’m okay with the macaroni spaghetti and barbecue. Sadly, no cake. 🙁 But the simple things that I got that day were more than an extravagant party.

As I’ve said in my older post, I really am excited about my birthday because of the people that remembers me. And this year they never failed me again. I got text messages, letters and online greetings which made my heart melt.

Also, three beautiful young ladies exerted effort in giving me the most memorable birthday gifts ever!

sweetest things I got from 8 year olds 🙂

 

These were given by Marxi, my little sister and Faith, our cousin. The one with the glitters is Marxi’s she even used my metallic pen in writing the message. Inside that wrapper is a letter and a photo of Taylor Swift. They knew I love her. 🙂 I  think the photo costs five pesos at their school and it’s really sweet to have Faith giving it to me.

And them this one, was  given by Bea

bea's masterpiece

As I’ve said on my Tumblr, ” A friend gave it to me as a birthday gift because she said she doesn’t have any money to buy me one so she made this. Sweet part is she never make anything that involves art and coloring and drawing. She even searched for owl images just so she can draw one. Yah, I know, the “BIRTHDAY” is incorrectly spelled. I was the one to discover it actually and she just laughed at it. Still lovely, isn’t it?” 🙂

Also, we have this written on our little white board all day

 

And you can guess who the writer is

 

Yeah! None other than this little lady over here with her towel still on her head after taking a bath. Marxi can be sweet sometimes. 🙂

There. That’s why I love birthdays, it makes you feel special even just in a day. ♥
