Thy Fancy Birthday Party

I just turned 19.

End of story.

HAHAHA. Kidding.

I am now entering my last teen year of my existence. It was both frightening and exhilarating. I can’t decide if I’m excited for it or dreading it. But I am bursting with positivity just thinking about it! 🙂

I was not expecting anything special to happen on my birthday. I know beforehand that we were going to Manila so I already told my friends that I will not be celebrating with them that day. It was really okay for me to celebrate wherever and with whomever because I was actually not planning anything on my birthday. I know that my Mom would just cook pansit (noodles) for the family and that’s it. I know that wasn’t special enough for a birthday but I was fine with it. Really. I wasn’t on to something nice for my birthday so whatever happens is cool. As long as I’m with someone I love dearly, I can celebrate.

I asked the family (our family plus my 2 aunts’ family) if we could go to North Edsa because they were having a shoes and bag sale. I don’t really have any money, I just want to explore, window shop. But I could use some new sandals and doll shoes.


When we got there, I was surprised when one of my aunts made a reservation at Shakey’s (I told her the night before that I’ve never been to Shakey’s). I was speechless and shy because I was supposed to be the one treating them, not the other way around. After we were seated, she asked me what pizza I wanted. Then we ate.

I know this sound so cheesy (but I am naturally a cheesy person) but I am so touched by the people who took the time to greet me on my birthday. I was overwhelmed by the messages my friends sent me. Reading one after another made me feel that I was overflowing with love. That distance cannot stop anyone from showing their love.

I was so happy I could cry.

Fingers’ crossed for another fun year. God bless!
