It’s all about birthdays

Birthday, the day we were born. The day we first saw the light, the day we first saw the creation of God. The day were everybody got excited to celebrate it with family or friends. Birthday means gifts and party, but mine was different. The last time i remembered,  i celebrated my birthday when i was 5 o 6 years old, can’t forget about it coz’ that’s the time i started to hate dogs, not really hate but i just don’t like dogs now. Our dog bit me while eating chicken outside our house.

Unlike others, i’m not excited with my birthday. Got envious with my friends and classmates who has party every year, lots of balloons and blew their cakes. As much as i want a party like that, but i can’t, my parents can’t afford it. Oh, i’m not complaining, we’re not fortunate as others and i understand. I celebrated my birthdays by going to church and pray, bonus if my mother cook a “pancit” for long life,  “biko” (sweet rice treat o sticky rice cake) or “suman”(rice cake wrapped in banana leaf) .:-) Thankful to some of my friends way back high school days, for making some of my birthdays memorable, although no foods but at least the laughter and the effort to make me happy is unforgetable. And oh, i dont have pictures too since we don’t have camera.

When i started college, that’s the time i experienced something new in my birthday. Cards, flowers, “mañanita” ( a morning serenade to a birthday celebrant before sunrise,this is some kind of a surprise). Gifts from BF.etc…


This is my first time big birthday celebration ever. With my boardmates and friends at Busaing compound. Sorry no pictures of the foods, i lost my usb and i only have this pics in my album (hard copy). And i’m 4 months pregnant here. Thanks to my fiancé for giving me this kind of party even though he’s not around to celebrate. image

This is not just my birthday, it’s a 4 in 1 celebrations. Birthday, car blessing, thanksgiving and despedida for my husband.




My 29th. Lunch at The Port Waterfront hotel, and the next day dinner at our place. I celebrated twice for the two group of friends (wifey friends and old friends). Thanks Iris n Glen for the surprise cake with all those waiters singing me happy birthday.:-). 5 months pregnant here.

These are all the birthdays i have celebrated. Thanks to my ever supportive husband for giving me all that i need in life, and also “wants”.:-)

That’s why now, i made sure to capture every special moments with my kids, giving them everything as much as we could, the things we don’t have before. I don’t want my kids will experience, same as i did. That’s why we work hard for them.

I know the feeling, celebrating birthdays with nothing, even cake to blow. That’s why now, i made sure that my friends and family (especially my parents) wont forget their birthdays, by giving them surprises like cakes,flowers, o gifts.

I know it’s not about material things or big parties that makes our birthdays special, thats only a bonus. But admit it, we all wish for it.:-)

What’s important is, we have to thank our creator, for giving us another year to enjoy his creation and to be a blessing to everybody. To appreciate everything that we have and be contented.

God bless you all.

Early bird!!

Just another random thoughts:

I’ m wide awake as early as 4am, first reason, my baby asked for milk and here i am now trying to close my eyes again hoping i can go back to sleep but seems like it’s impossible to happen.
Lying here in our room (with light,yah! Coz my children and i afraid in the dark). Staring at the ceiling, and lots of things pop up in my mind. I don’t know where to start. All i know is that i miss my husband, i miss my family in leyte, i miss my friends, i miss everybody. I feel so alone and sad and sick. Migraine, backpain, sinusitis, sometimes fever, and bruises in my body again. Seems like they love to stay with me, as if i love them. Been suffering with all of these for how many years now, and sometimes i got used with all the pain and the hassle they give in my life..
I super miss my husband, but can’t do anything with it. Our future is in his hands. Sacrifices are needed just to give good future to our children. If only i have stable business here that i can buy the time of my husband to stay longer with us here without worrying our monthly ammortization in the bank. Hopefully soon. In Gods time.
I miss my family in leyte, i really want to go home, but our schedule wont allow us to do so. I hope we’ll spend our christmas there, and i hope the weather there is good by that time, coz’ i’m afraid with floods..
I miss my friends, my old and new friends, i mean all of them. You know that feeling when you need someone to talk or text but no one is there for you? That you’re so alone and lonely and you feel like nobody cares. And that you wonder, where are they, why they don’t even text you or msg you on fb just to say how are you, or i ms u.etc.. Just like what i always do.
Do not do unto others, what you don’t like others do unto you. Same like, do unto others, what you like others do unto you. But seems like all the efforts is in me, but others can’t notice what i did.
What if one day im gone, so excited what people will say about me, 🙂 if only i can hear all the things they will miss about me.. #justsaying
Can you guys say what you’ll gonna miss when i’m gone?! At least now i’m still gonna hear you..:-)
Till my next nonsense post..:-) Mother mode now, it’s monday. Preparing my princess to school..
God Bless everyone!!!


A moment of waiting.. (Another random thoughts)

Here i am lying in my bed waiting for my king for our chat bonding on facebook. Long distance relationship is not that sad because of facebook and other social networking like viber, twitter, instagram, skype, ym, etc.. Unfortunately in our case we can only use fb chat, but at least compare to other ship, they don’t have internet connection at all.
I missed old times, you know, letters, cards, printed pictures, etc.. I remember before i wrote him every week or sometimes everyday, send him different kinds of cards and pictures. But now, i’m kinda lazy with all that stuff,hehehe. I’l just open my facebook instead and apload pics or write him a message and there he can see it right away as soon as he open his fb.
Oh, by the way my birthday is fast approaching. Oh no! I’m almost out of the calendar!!heheheh. Anyway, no more plans for my birthday. No more salo-salo with friends. I just want to be with my family. It’s been so long that i’m so dedicated with my friends, i can’t live without my friends, i’m so loyal with my friends coz’ they’re like my sisters, but now maybe it’s time for myself. I’m on hurting stage, disappointed, and wondering why?.. Okay! Enough for this drama!
With all these drama, i found out that the best ever friend of mine is my hubby. I’m so thankful he allowed me to talk to him like a friend and not as my husband. Chatting like a real best friend, who advice you, comfort you, telling you your mistakes and say to you that no matter what happen he’s there for me all the time. How lucky am i to have him in my life. I cannot trust anyone except him.
Forgive me with all these sentiments in life,hehehe.. I’d rather write it here than talking to anybody out there. You know what i mean.. Not all people you talk cares for you, some are just too curious to know..
Time is up… Time for chat bonding with my hubby..
Thanks for reading all these nonsense post of mine..hehehe.. Till my next post..
Wala lang, pampalipas oras, while waiting… 😉
