Happy Birthday!

Today is the day! It's my 27th birthday!!!

My 26th year had been crazy, fun and full of blessings.. Nothing that I couldn't thank God for! Thank You God again for my sweet family.. for my lovely sets of friends.. for the newer friends I met thru blogging.. for my job.. for the opportunity to travel.. for the chance to help others in a little way thru PBO.. for those who've touched my life and made me realize even more how blessed I am.. And Thank You God for all the days that I'll be waking up to! God is not only good, He is generous!

And yes! I had a simple pre-birthday celebration at home with my best of friends last Sunday.. I wanted a tea party at first, so I made this invite and posted it on our fb group..



But it became an I-don't-know-what-to-call party because I was too lazy to plan and to prepare.. but the tea is still there... iced tea!!! Leveling kaya ang init para sa totoong tea..
 

I made my own version of a clubhouse sandwich.. ham, cheese and egg. And my Kuya Jay cooked the delicious spaghetti!

Mukha ng ulam yun sauce, no? :)

Coffee jelly and graham cake for dessert.. I made 'em! No photo of the graham cake and I may be getting violent reactions for it.. Friends, birthday ko so don't be harsh.. haha :P



Mama also cooked my all time favorite hamonado while Rnix gave me a box of brownies. And I bought myself a cake! It wasn't really by birthday yet so I didn't mind putting a candle on it..



Zaicy arrived early and put in this cutesy banner he made for me. You all know Zaicy, he's as thoughtful as can be!

Super like!

And he had time to play with my three pamangkin.. Na-haggard ka sa kulet ng mga 'to no, Zaicy?


Francine, Iron-Jaydrex and Joelle

Now what I really loved is that my lady guests were indeed wearing dresses.. Ang saya!

With the very summer-y girls - Apple, Rnix and Stah! Plus Chin and Athena
With Rio!
Black Fairy Lori and Princess Sophie

My friends kept bugging me why I was wearing black on my birthday party.. Bawal na pala yun ngayon? So I changed into a happier color..


With Sophie who celebrated her 4th birthday a day before!

It was an anything-goes-party.. spontaneity is key! The kids played the whole time, hindi talaga nauubusan ng energy may kyota. We also chatted non-stop, ate non-stop, laughed non-stop!

Jump kung jump!
The techie kids!
The PBB teens este babies.. may holding hands agad agad on the side!
Play time with Baby Joelle
Buti nagkasya tayo sa sofa namin no?
Naging dining table na ang floor for the kids!
Takaw nyo! Char.
We also watched Speed.. na ni-dub sa tagalog.. na ikina-OC ko ng bongga.. Ang sakit lang sa bangs ng english film na tinagalog no? Mas keri ko pa yun ibang language at magbasa ko subtitle e. Anyways, buti gwapo si Keanu Reeves!

 
We also watched Fast & Furious 6 sa pirated cd, sshhh.. Pero di ko naman naintindihan dahil busy-busyhan ako. Then my special guest (as Rio put it) arrived and brought me adobo that he cooked for me. He didn't stay for long.. but it was enough to make me kilig.. Landi? Charowts.

Ikinaloka ko lang ang reaction, hindi ng mga friends ko ah, pero ng mga kiddo. Like si malditang Sophie na lumapit saken at tinanong, "Anong name nyang friend mo?". Pabulong lang sana yun question, kaso hindi ko naintindihan agad kaya isinigaw niya. At si Jaydrex naman na ni-head-to-foot look ang koya mo na akala mo e siya ang tatay ko.. Kaka-stress ang mga batang 'to!

Anyways, I had an even bigger surprise sa party ko.. nag-brown out! Kalurkey di ba? But it lasted for a few minutes lang and added a little thrill sa celebration so keri lang.



I had so much fun. Thanks friends for coming. I feel loved. Thanks din sa pag-chismis saken kay mama ha? Lalo na sayo Lori dahil buong giliw daw yun kuwento mo sabi ni Jay, haha.

Do I really look 27?
Later today, I'll be celebrating again but this time with my office friends. We'll eat in Vikings in SM Marikina. At dahil birthday ko, libre ang lunch buffet ko, yey!




And before I end this post, let me also greet this very special person a belated happy birthday! She celebrated her birthday a few days ago. I haven't met her in person, but she made me feel appreciated and important.. not just once.

Sorry, I stole your pic :)
Happy Happy Birthday to my dear Mhie of Travelentz! I hope you had an awesome celebration and pray you happiness and good health for you and your beautiful family. And thank you, too. 


Enjoy the rest of the week, blogger friends! Mwah.

  2. Hi crushee. Happy 27th bday. Dito naba ilalagay ang testimony sayo. Sige dito ko nalang ilalagay. Eto na... Ready kana?

    Si crushee ko ay maganda, sexy, malaki ang boobs at matambok ang pwet. Iyan ang gusto mong margining diba? dyuk lang syempre. Haha. Wag ka munang matuwa hindi pako tapos. lol Pero totoo naman na maganda at kaakit akit ka. Sabi ko nga sayo tumataas ang nota ko twing nakikita kita. (High intonation yun ah). haha

    First impression ko. Teka ano ba yung 1st impression yun bang nakita kita o yung sa nakilala kita sa blog. Yung nakilala kita sa blog na nga lang. Ikaw ang babaeng sawi sa pag-ibig. Martyr level. Sinaktan ng boyfriend. Sobrang kalog. Hindi ka mahinhin. Wagas kung makabasag ng pinggan. Kabaliktaran ka ni Maria Clara. In short masaya kang kasama. Nakakatuwa ka kasi. At talagang mahal ng lahat. hihi

    Nung nakita naman kita… remember sa airport tayo unang nagkita nung pumunta tayo Sairgao. Susko basag na basag ang pingan. As in pino. Hahaha. Maingay ka pala at makulit. Kim chiu sa payat. Alam ko na medyo may awkward moment tayo kasi nga dun sa sinabi ko sayo. Alam mo yan. Haha. Iyun nga parang wala kang pinagbago sa blog at sa personal. Mas minahal kita. Chos!

    Happy happy birthday crushee! Wish ko sayo sana mabuntis kana. dyuk! Syempre mahanap mo muna ang magpapatibok sa puso mo at magpakasal kana ng bongga. Nakita mo na yata e. hihi

  8. hmmmm..i got kilig with this "special guest".. if he's really that special i think i should meet him ng makilatis haha charots.. naloka ako sa pagbabakod sayo ni jaydrex!..im glad you enjoyed your pre-birthday celebration and i hope you enjoy your special day as well... i dont know where to post your birthday request and thought i would put it here and on facebook hehe.. so here it is..

    How I got into your blog? Well, I see you on almost all the blog im reading way back almost a year ago. "Hmmm ang sipag naman nya magbasa at magcomment." I got curious, I went on your blog, read it and poof it became coco crunch. Ok, I know its not funny im getting corny na. All I wanted to say is nung mabasa ko ang mga post mo, nagustuhan na kita. I cant stop reading it at madalas akong nakakarelate. Siguro dahil halos pareho tayo ng mga likes and you know may mas malalim na something na pareho tayo, that's why we called ourselves twin sis. Hindi man sa muka at katawan, alam ko na yan at hindi ko itatanggi na mas sexy ka. From the day that I know you in blogging, to the day that we met, until today, you've become a real friend of mine. Medyo maldita minsan, ok hindi medyo..maldita talaga hahaha! But I know you have a good heart and I love you for that. Thank you for everything. Happy happy birthday sis Joanne. Im glad na nakilala kita at naging friend. I wish all your prayers will be answered specially hmmm alam mo na kung ano. Stay happy and pretty and sexy like me ;)

  9. First impression ko sayo..... lagi kita napapansin sa comments kaya nacurious ako. na curious ako sa pic mo. yun siguro at doon na nagsimula. at oo, muntikan na, muntikan na talaga, buti na lang nailagan ko. Killer smile kung makangiti. Pwedeng pwede talagang maging endorser ng toothpaste brand. Isa ka sa mga tinuturing kong diwata na nakilala ko dito sa mundo ng blogosperyo at ng aking fantasy (ano daw?).

    I'm looking forward to see you someday.


    Happy Birthday Joanne.
    Wish you all the best and more birthdays to come. Ingat lagi and God Bless.

    Ingat sila sa iyo.

  19. Hoy Juana gusto ko yung club house sandwich fave ko yan penge. At may "special guest" gumaganun! Bulong mo sakin kung sino daliii!

    Testi?

    Si Juana? Ayaw nyang patawag ng Juana pero tinatawag ko pa rin syang Juana ha ha. Wala lang gusto ko lang nababasa yung reply nyang "waaah sabing hindi ako si Juana eh" - parang ini-imagine ko syang nawawala ang beautiful smile pag sinasabi nya yun na tingin ko ang cute cute ha ha :)

    I came accross her sa mga comments sa mga blog posts. She's blogospehere sweet Joanne. Very supportive not only to her fellow bloggers but also to the noble deeds of PBO - always around parang hindi napapagod pareho ng kanyang "pre-nup photo opp partner" na si beautiful Zai.

    Then I met her in person once. Hindi pala sya sweet but very sweet. Parang ang tahimik nya lang sa personal medyo mas lukring sya sa mga blog posts nya ha ha. At take note - isa syang babaeng pinagpala kasi "zero body fats" ang arrived lolz!

    Happy happy birthday girl! I wish you all the best in life and love. xoxo :)

  20. Happy birthday ulit ate Joanne! :) Ang sweet talaga ni kuya Zai. Bagay na bagay kayo! :D

    Si ate joanne ay una kong nakilala sa blogosphere, tambay sa mga blogs na pinupuntahan ko, at laging sidekick ni kuya Zai na napagkamalan ko pa dating mag fb/gf sila.

    Si ate Joanne ay una kong nakita sa Red Ribbon (Rob Galleria). Nakain, mahinhin, with poise! Mayaman ang dating! ;) Mas maganda sa personal. Nung tumayo na sya at naunang nag lakad e ang sexy maglakad.

    Pag nakausap mo sya e parang di makakabasag ng pinggan. Mabait at palangiti. :) May sense of humor. ayun. Hope to know your more ate Joanne! More bondings to come! :)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ULIT! GOD BLESS YOU! :*
