The BIG Three-O!

I'm thirty years old today and not worried at all. Why would I be? Yes, I'm a year older, but, it also means that I have another year to look forward to. The last 29 years have been good. Not perfect, but the way I just wanted it to be.

My 30th year started with a surprise. I was roused at exactly 12 midnight by my husband Jowell, sisters Chelly and Bru, brother Eboy, and my sister's boyfriend Mhieko's cheerful singing of "Happy Birthday". They even had a cake with a single candle lit. I feel so blessed and loved.
Aside from the singing and the cake, there was pizza and ice cream. The handa was truly simple, but I truly appreciated it. Before that kasi, at around 7PM last night, I was saying to Jowell that this will be the first birthday that I will have no handa. And 4 hours later, there we are, gathered at the dining table and sharing my husband's humble gift to me. I will forever cherish that moment as it was the nth time I fell in love all over again with my husband.

The giddy husband.

No superstitions, please. It's only because I moved too soon. :P

My cake in my favorite color. Yum!

We still have no plans for later. Maybe more surprises, eh!

(Note: Indeed, there was more! Jowell bought palabok, roasted chicken, and pata hamon for dinner. Yum!!!)

And yes, it's ok to be 30 as long as you look 20! Hahaha.
