Yes, folks. I just turned 29 last December 20. I’m still waiting for Joel to upload the pics. Tagaaaal. :p Excited! Anyway, just wanna share some kwento and some of the pics from my and my friends’ camphones.

I attended the simbang gabi (anticipated) in Sacred Heart because I believe there’s no better way to welcome my birthday than thanking God for my awesome 28th and seeking guidance for my 29th. When I got home, a gift from my roomies was waiting for me by my bedroom door. πŸ™‚

When the clock struck 12, I was overwhelmed by the flood of greetings in my Facebook wall, Twitter feed and phone. I spent 2 hours replying to friends and I fell asleep.

When I woke up, I busied myself with chores so I won’t kill myself from anxiety for waiting for my celebration in BF. Yes. Naglaba pa ako sa mismong araw ng aking kaarawan. Nag-general cleaning pa ako ng kwarto. :p By 6ish, Joko picked me up and we headed to Conti’s for my birthday dinner. We were joined by Donnie and Kassy.

We had tofu steak, baked prawns, chicken teriyaki, caesar salad, gambas and pumpkin soup… the best part of the meal though was a gigantic bouquet of flowers delivered to our table. πŸ™‚ Thank you, LLB for sending me flowers. And thanks to Joko for being an accomplice. Thanks also to Donnie for giving me another bouquet. Of mums, me thinks. Akala ko talaga, yellowbells ang matatanggap ko.

Went to Le Souk right after to meet our other friends. πŸ™‚ My 29th birthday celeb’s the chillest celeb ever. πŸ™‚ Mas chill than last year’s. First birthday na hindi ako na-stress. Steady drinking and hardcore kulitan lang. πŸ™‚

And I didn’t have a cake this year. I had creampuffs. Thanks Kassy! My friends put “2” and “9” candles together so that I make a birthday wish. Wait for the picture.

Pakkshet sa lahat ng pinagbaliktad ang candles at ginawa akong lola na 92. Hmppppf. Mga daot.

I didn’t get buzzed by choice becauseΒ I didn’t file for leave the following day. All I could do was kiss the bottle of Absolut. Thanks Enzo! πŸ™‚

After the drinking, bonding and smoking shisha… it was time to go home. Well, at least for my friends.

Zo and I still stopped for a late night/early morning snack (?)


Got home around 5:30 and I didn’t sleep untilΒ I opened all of the gifts! πŸ˜€

Most of my friends did not follow my wishlist. I doubt if they read it at all. :p Doesn’t matter though. They still made me a very, very happy birthday girl. πŸ™‚

Belated happy birthday to me. πŸ™‚
