This is the day that I’m waiting for! May 16, 2011. I woke up early to attend mass, I got flood on my cellphone and I love it! Of course I have to attend my class. I’m not exempted on that. it’s kind of surprising, it’s my first time to have a birthday on school and first time to experience of singing a Happy Birthday song by my classmates. It’s a little kind of embarrassing but deep inside flattered. I’m actually dreaming of cake like this

Perfect for debut

but it’s worth 8000 pesos so I have to say no no for that and much better to have this

This is my original cake!

for only 500 pesos. See the difference? ha ha. It’s simple and affordable but Yum. It’s a mocha flavor. Love it! Imagine I had 3 parties. First, this one with my family.

Only the first part of the game. This was held on our dining area. next is with my friends, we’re now up on terrace! Nice view.

We had a lot of pose here ’til the digital camera cannot handle it anymore so he end up dead. ha ha. Fried Chicken, Buko Salad, Pancit, Plain Rice, Cake and for beverage are Red Wine and Softdrinks.

Finally the last party is with my uncle’s co-worker, they came up with the surprise and I got a liitle chatting on them in the garden for just about a minute. I missed to take picture on this part. Then I left them with my uncle.

Well well well, it’s too late and my friend’s house are  miles away so they slept with me. I really love that, chatting, laughing, picture-taking again on bed (Good thing my friend jenny brought her little camera. Here’s the sample:

That’s enough. We had just the same smiles on pictures. ha ha. Good thing we able to fit in ourselves in bed.

Then my day went so well, a very happy day. I will never forget this. I felt that I had all the things in life– Friends, Family, Love, Happiness, Good grades on school and everything. There is no word to describe how thankful I am. I didn’t expect to have a birthday party as happy as this. I hope that every girl who turn 18 would experience this, it’s priceless!


9 Days Left

On the 16th of May 1993, at around 5pm, a baby girl was born that added in the population of the Philippines. An eldest granddaughter and the eldest daughter brought joy to the family when they saw her lovely face at the very first time glowing at the nursery room of the hospital. Everyone was excited to touch her, to kiss her and bring her to soothe the body in their shoulders.
After several months, the child learned to crawl, talk and play. Went to kindergarten after a couple of years, she was taught how to write, read and of course to be friendly. She grew up shy and don’t even know how to control emotions, she cry everywhere when she feels crying, she laugh out loud when she cannot even control it.
On grade school life, she discovered that dancing is her talent. This child sets priority on her study, and got an academic award since grade school to college, she said that was one of the best gifts that parents shall have from their children. She has also dreams, a lot of dreams that cannot be anymore mentioned. Certainly, she is also not exempted into problems, she treats it as a challenge and she cried many times but tough enough to surrender. She fell in love and also felt unloved.
Once in her life, she also dreamt of being a princess on her 18th birthday. To have a gorgeous balloon pink silk dress, silver little crown with stunning diamonds on her head partnered with a Cinderella-like glass shoes, gentleman prince that escorts her into the center of the crowd, an 18 roses and 18 candles around her. A beautiful 5 layered cake standing in the middle of the variety of scrumptious foods in the long table. It seems that time runs fast than mind when this child was now already 17 and ready to turn 18 a week from now. Luckily, that child is ME.
My dream debut will just remain a dream. My parents cannot afford of what I wanted to have on my special birthday. But I’m still happy. Money cannot replace all the things that I have now – God, friends and family.
