It's Official, I'm no longer in the calendar months

After more than 3 months, I found the time and the mood to update my birthday post, so here it goes.  Yeah, no matter how difficult it is, I have to face it.  My age can no longer be found in any of the calendar months!

I did report to work that day for the same reason I stated during Reese's birthday.  Until September ends, then that's the only time I'll have my fresh leave credits.  (No I'm not complaining, just saying. And besides, as of this writing, I already have it!).

Hubby drop me off to office as usual.   Then after half an hour, I got a call from him that he was downstairs.  I hurriedly went down and was surprised with a birthday breakfast :)

He filed half day leave from work and fetch Reese for dinner.  We went to Poco Deli in Capitolio, Pasig.  We've tried their best seller german sausage and also the lamb one, but the former taste better.  Another "hit" dish was the truffle pasta that hubby couldn't stop raving about.

I was a year older again, hope a year wiser too.  As for my birthday wish, there's really nothing more than to be with loved ones and to keep all of us healthy and safe.  I pray that when I hit my 3rd double digit year (11, 22...) that I'll be still spending it with the people I loved the most.

Reese 5th Birthday

Before July finally ends, I should really attempt to make it and share our little celebration of Reese’s birthday earlier this month.

She didn’t have the usual “birthday in school” celebration. Her new school is not allowing outside food to be brought in. So maybe, I’ll try to be more creative next time to find another way for her to celebrate with kids.

I wasn’t even able to go on leave… I don’t have credits anymore due to the number of emergencies we’ve had this fiscal year (starting Oct).

Given that her special day fall on a Thursday (coding day), we all commuted to Megamall after school and work. We picked up the “Hello Kitty” cake that I ordered from Bread Talk and brought it in our dinner destination, Yabu.

After dinner, we went to the art place in Megamall and let Reese make her own glass-sticker.

Then, the following weekend, her dad and I spent time with her at Cosmic Kidz.

Reese, we hope that you feel loved and appreciated as always. We love you!
