a happy birthday

yesterday was my 33rd birthday. i wasn't actually planning on anything but my mom decided to prepare dinner and invite some of my cousins and my in-laws.

it was a fun dinner. my mom cooked some of her all-time favorite dishes like caldereta, dinuguan, and of course pansit. my brother cooked the chicken. and of course, there was the sago which my preggy cousin requested for.

side chika: we just found out the other day that my cousin was 1 month pregnant. that will be their 5th child and everyone is hoping that it will be a boy this time. their 3rd child is a boy. but on that side of my cousins, it's a girl-dominated world when it comes to children. i do pray that i'll be the next one getting pregnant.

so anyway, we just had the usual dinner chikahan and salo-salo. my antie dolly & agnes brought me a birthday cake. later on, when my in-laws arrived, they also brought me a birthday cake. well, i ended up with 2 cakes for my birthday and they're identical! hihihi!

it was fun seeing my nieces doing the honors of blowing the birthday cake on my behalf.

overall, it was a happy celebration. there are a lot of things that i am grateful for over the past year. i've been through some ups and downs and despite my own failures, the lord has been kind enough to still shower me with his blessings. i would have wanted more of that but in know he probably has his own plans. still, i am thankful.

aside from the usual guidance and good health for me & my family, i am really wishing and praying to him for only one thing. and i know he knows it already. i just have to wait for now for his special grace. he's probably telling me now, in due time my child, in due time.


  1. Belated Happy Birthday sis!

    I will also include you in my prayers, pareho tayo kasi ng dinadasal e.

  2. In His time, Liza.. In the meantime (puro 'time' hehe), enjoy each other and enjoy scrapping and scrap-shopping ;D.. pagdating ng hinihintay mo, di ka na makaka-shop at makaka-scrap hehe.

  3. I agree with Alpha... enjoy the scrapping and scrap-shopping as much as you can... pag nandyan na ang baby, that will take a backseat.

    Happy birthday dearie!
