Monday. My prayer group surprised me and Cathee with a birthday party. Surprise parties I'm usually allergic to haha since I'm never ready! Ya know, I didn't have a pretty dress, my hair was unbrushed, my face was devoid of makeup. But, what the heck, I had the loveliest time with my mommy friends!
|Yummy chocolate cake from Red Ribbon. But I want to know who did the icing letters!|
|Cathee blew out her candle first since her birthday was before mine.|
|Vito blew out my candle but I made a birthday wish for my sons.|
Tuesday. My favorite hairstylist in the world, Louis Phillip Kee, treated me to a salon day. I had my good friend Jane Kingsu-Cheng of Forever 21 and Lucky Janie with me and we chatted about everything under the sun—from our sons and yayas to career plans and other bloggers.
making me beautiful! Jane, thanks for spending the day with me and for the free lunch!
Then Vince surprised me with a bouquet of red roses. Vince always gets me flowers for my birthday. I love flowers. He either gets red roses or multi-colored tulips.
|Sugared pili nuts, dried mangoes, calamansi honey with toasted quesong puti, |
La Maria Camembert and Queso Rustico.
Then the day after my birthday, I met up with my girlfriends at Kabila of M Café. We had wine with the tastiest cheese platter ever. We gossiped and encouraged each other. It was a lovely afternoon! Thanks, Kat, Nicole and Nikki!
