January 25th, an amazing day to start my special day.
Hubby drove me to the office, and our son and his Ate to the school on a very early Monday morning. I have to work even on this day because there is no such thing as birthday leave in our company, only vacation leave. Though I can apply for a vacation leave I chose not, there are a lot of work that needs to be done.
See those clouds in perfect ripple formation? Looks like God sent them to welcome a new year, a new day in my life, because it’s my birthday! Thank you Lord for a wonderful morning!
The funny part was that, Hahaha Hasula became the song of the day, played repeatedly on my PC and 3 or 4 of us sang the same song over and over again.
Before I knew it, it was already 5 in the afternoon.
Hubby took a while to fetch me at the office because he went to buy a birthday cake at Red Ribbon. I had time to capture the sunset from the roof top.
A very simple celebration at home awaits us.
We had pork belly and 3 slices of fish grilled using the Sunnex double non-stick pan, shrimps sautéed with garlic, onions, sprite and a little oyster sauce, a cream cheese flan, steamed sweet corns and the rocky road Red Ribbon cake.
We’re lucky we have house employees who knows how to cook simple dishes or should I say can follow recipes. They prepared all of them except for the cake. All I did was to arrange and take photos.
The celebration will not be completed without picture taking. As usual, it was very difficult to take decent photos with the kids, they just don’t stay put. Anyway at least we have one, pwede na.
Our only guest that day, our kumpare and officemate came in a few minutes later. Our kumare and officemate was on travel that day. Our barkada in Iligan City also have more important engagements to attend to.
Overall, my birthday was a very memorable one, spending it with a friend, our house employees and especially with my kids and husband was more than I can ask for. God is so good to us, and we are very thankful.
Thank you also to my friends in FB for the greetings. :-)

Before the 25th of the month, the January Birthday ladies in the office had a kurambos celebration in a form of snacks for the whole department on January 20th.
The following day we lunched out at Prawn House Centrio Ayala Mall, exclusively for our division. Bongga lang the birthday celebration, there were four of us celebrants in our division alone.
It was definitely a happy birthday for all of us, and we thank our Lord Almighty for everything.
