my M turned 28 last saturday. while we celebrated, we also remembered that it has been a year since we practically lived on adrenaline as we fought the ravage of ondoy. we were luckier than most who lost families, properties and selves. nevertheless, it became a year of moving on and forward for many filipinos whose lives were marked by the tragedy. we said a little prayer for them.
on a happier note, the hubby has had / will have a series of celebrations. last week, my folks came over to bring food and goodwill. i think it was just an excuse to visit mischa, but we appreciate it anyway 🙂
on his actual birthday, the three of us joined another celebration as a good friend’s daughters had joint parties, which deserves a separate post. para kaming naki-ride sa ibang party hihihi. after that, we went strolled around the mall, which was great since it felt good to walk around and window shop when you’re not in a hurry and you’re not buying groceries. on the way home, this happened.
sunday was spent with my family (again) at eastwood mall. had a really sumptuous (but seriously purse denting) feast at the flying pig and blufish (they had a crossover menu). we all shared platters of crabs, ribs, sausages and basmati rice.
the little girl had fun running around. the wide space was a nice change from the living room that she was used to in exercising her little legs. we were a little afraid she would topple over the water because she was always making a beeline for it.
happy birthday love! (permit me to be cheesy for once). i hope i never forget to tell you how lucky i am, and how complete i am now. i hope and pray all the time that we have our hearts’ desires, especially in raising this little family we have. i promise to hold your hand all the time, i hope you won’t let go of mine. 🙂
