Gani turned 28!
I just gave birth last year which means I was pregnant the other year, so I wasn’t able to setup anything for his birthdays then. (excuses…) But this time, when he decided that he wants to have it in our apartment, I took some time to prepare for it.
We had his birthday celebration last Nov 22, 2 days before his actual birthday. I cooked Carbonara & Beef Caldereta and ordered billiard themed Cake with flavor “rhumbutter” from Red Ribbon. He kept on asking for that cake flavor since we only had that during our wedding more than 2 years ago. I also decorated the dining area with a Disney Pixar Cars inspired birthday banner with his name and table cloth both from TK. And to add more to the party ambiance, I grab some colorful balloons from NBS and got some free balloon sticks courtesy of Marion. It ended up having a slight kiddie party appeal. :p
Of course, my MIL cooked Squid Relleno & Pork chop in Ginger stew while his brother prepared Kilawin na Talaba. And before I forget, the birthday celebrator himself made the ever delicious Buko Salad.
It’s our 2nd year together, and having a toddler in the house gives us a lot of reason to have our first home-made celebration. Everybody had fun and was delighted to have a different party venue this time. And after all the visitors have gone home, Tita Beth and I continued the karaoke until both of us were too sleepy and tired.
Happy-happy birthday to my life-time partner and I hope the good times would always be there. Enjoy my simple gift. I love you!
