My Birthday Weekend

Turning 24 is significant for me. In my opinion, when one reaches 24 he/she should already be considered a REAL adult. Well there isn't any theory or scientific study to this claim but I believe that it's the age when we should really really take our lives and our future seriously. So I would like to thank everyone for making not just the 13th but the whole Feb 11-14 special! Ang ganda ganda ko lang. Chuice!

Feb 11

Office lunch at Coach Pia's house. Thank you Coach for being my birthday mommy and serving barbecue, pancit malabon and cake! Nagfeeling Destiny's Child at napakanta tuloy ako ng...

Can you keep up? Baby boy, make me lose my breath!

After work friends joined me for a small celebration at 77 Cafe Bar and Resto along Kamuning Avenue.

Quick review: Food was good and wasn't too pricey. I loved the old house/artsy vibe of the place making everyone feel cozy. Though I had problems with reservations. Got a confirmation on Wednesday but when Mika, Tim and I arrived no table was reserved. We were lead to the first floor but the waiters asked us to transfer back up since according to the manager that section wasn't open yet. I had to insist that they can't treat us that way since they did not even take note of my reservations. Nasindak sa beauty ko kaya tuloy ang ligaya!

Other early birds!

Went home a little after one and had a nice chat with Mika and Josh at the village clubhouse.

Feb 12. Went to Cubao to do some errands. I waited for my birthday while watching The King's Speech. At the stroke of midnight, I said a little prayer of thanks. BANAL.

Feb 13. Woke up at 9 to hear mass at the Chapel near Montgomery. It was a semi-open structure so I had to wear shades the whole time. KEBS. We had North Park deliver food and had a good dinner with the family.

Feb 14. Contrary to everyone's expections, I HAD A DATE LAST VALENTINE'S DAY

*Kilig* CHE!

The person asked me out the night before and picked me up from my office after work. We decided to go to Kiss The Cook along Maginhawa St. Food was great through the service was kinda lame

Afghan Chicken

Five-Spice Pork Spareribs

The setting was romantic. Table for two with flowers and...

Manong Pianista!!!

ANG CATCH. My date was my barkada from high school, KAREN. Yes BABAE. BWAHAHAHAH Apparently Valentine's wasn't a huge deal for her and her boyfriend so it was a perfect time to catch up. Another barkada, James, followed later that evening too.

Of course we ended the evening with...

ALAK. Para sa sugatan kong puso. ECHOZ!

There goes my 24th birthday report! And so after all the celebration, life begins and I've never been so thankful and excited. Cheers to growing up!
