My Eldest Daughter’s Simple Birthday Celebration

It was my eldest daughter’s birthday last Saturday, good thing she did not ask anything special that day but just a money for her to treat her classmates and her best friend. I gave her the money right away when I got my payout at work.

She did not expect anything or something but sister Lilian baked cassava cake on Saturday, I was able to buy a cake for her too and surprised her on Saturday morning. Right after her session in Kumon, she went home ahead of us and prepared herself for a dinner with her best friend. Her best friend have a car so it was not hard for her to go back and forth of which mall and restaurant they would like to dine. They supposed to go to Yakimix but Mj was not able reserve a table for them so Yakimix was not an option, they went to Bigbys instead.

I believe she enjoyed her day so much, she showed me some pictures from her instant film camera, I will be posting some pictures some other time. On the other hand, I may need to stop now, I have to sleep for work later. Goodnight!

Late Post : Mother’s Day

Late post:

Yeah it is almost Father’s day yet I didn’t post our Mother’s Day Celebration. Well it was nothing special, but what made it special was because my kids did an extra effort to surprise me. I didn’t expect of anything that day, I dropped by at the pizza parlor to share it with my kids, I didn’t have extra that day, the pizza I bought was cheap, don’t get me wrong we love the flavor of the pizza, it is tasty and the filling is just delish. The moment I arrived home, my daughters surprised me with balloons and a cake from Bistro Rosario. Oh well, they will not be able to accomplish without their financier, my husband.

Father’s day is approaching I am thinking of something nice to buy at home. I know my husband is not here to celebrate with us but even though I think it still have sense to make it extra special for my husband. I think I will treat the kids for a pizza, I will go to the same pizza parlor but I will buy extra box this time. Happy Father’s day my husband, thank you for always supporting us.

Expect The Unexpected

I was so tired from work but it was Mother’s Day so I need to be lively for the kids, they know how special the day is. If only I have budget today I would treat them to something nice like eating outside, explore at least after going to church. But my money is limited today I only even have some bucks today. I asked my workmate if the affordable pizza house is open today and he said yes. So I went there after work, I choose the pepperoni flavor since I know Faith loves this flavor so much, I only ordered the medium size since I don’t have budget for large size but I am sure the kids would love this treat. Yes, it’s Mother’s day and I should be the one to get some treats but I  know how much my husband is struggling for money right now so we just have to live with what we have. On the other hand, my husband never failed to pay our bills when I asked him to, which is more important so we can enjoy what we have in the house.

I texted Mj saying that I will be going home soon with a pizza, it’s not the Greenwich, which they love the most but it’s with the other brand but I am sure they will love it. My daughter just said “thanks mom” without greeting me “happy mother’s day” I was not disappointed but I expected it, I know them being so sweet and they always remember special occasion especially Mother’s Day since it always advertised in the TV but anyway, it’s no big deal as long as we are together eating this pizza I bought.

You know the saying “expect the unexpected” is somewhat true because when I got home, Mj and Faith came rushing to the door with balloons and a cake greeting me “Happy Mother’s Day!” I was smiling so wide, I never thought they were able to buy a cake, I wonder how but I need to deal it later, I just want to enjoy this moment with my kids. I need to eat the pizza and the cake they surprised me right away because I am already starving.

Our New Year Celebration: Late Post

I think I haven’t posted any foods that my niece cooked last New Year. I know this is so late already, I mean many occasion had passed from December to this date but until now I don’t have real updates. Geez I am just so caught up these days that posting any foods could not be realized, I mean I guess that’s true that when you have something that burdens you could not find any inspiration that you despised everything even in cooking something. So I guess that includes posting foods in my blog, I could not bring up any topic and since that burden is suddenly fading now, I hope so I am inspired again to post some pictures and update some food experience.

Moreover, these pictures were taken last New Year, my niece doesn’t have work that time yet. So she have full time to cook some foods for us to celebrate last year. Mariel said I wasn’t able to take nice pictures so she did not upload these on her instagram, oh well, I don’t mind at all.

My niece was also busy with cooking and cake business, so that night before the New Year’s eve, Mariel needs to go out yet to meet her client so she asked if I can checked the grill from time to time. And so I did, she wanted to have the same exact color in the picture. From time to time, I sent her a picture of this grilled pork chop.
