Goodbye July, let us all welcome August! Time flies so fast, last January I couldn’t wait for July because it is my birth month. Then today I am saying Hello to the month of August.
July is one of the best months of my life every year because it is my birth month. It is the month where I celebrated my birthday. When I was young, my parents always spend so much money on my birthday. But now that I am getting older, I realize that its not how much you spend that matters, it is the people whom you celebrate your birthday with. Last month, we just had a simple dinner with the family and I slept well with a smile in my face.
For the PAST 26 years in my life, I cannot choose when my Best Birthday Ever was because every year I spend my birthdays differently.
When I was in grade school, my mom used to prepare two parties for my birthday, one at school and one at our home. Imagine how expensive it was, aside from the fact that my birthday happens on a lean month. Of course a roast pig is always present; I cannot remember any birthday that there is no “Lechon Baboy” on the table.
I cannot choose my 18th birthday because I didn’t have a bonggacious Debut, no 18 roses, no 18 candles, and no cotillions. But my father has prepared two roasted pig plus one pig which is cooked for other viands.
Maybe I will just choose my birthday that I had celebrated last week. The people were chosen and I have spent it so uniquely, I have a little party at Greenwich Valencia and we also had a little food salu-salo in our home. I have spent my birthday with people close to my heart so that makes it so special.
Yesterday was my birthday and we celebrated it at Greenwich, Valencia. We had reservations good for 20 people and I had a BLAST. Though it was my first time to celebrate my birthday in a fast food chain, it was still GREAT. I mean, hey, most of my birthdays are celebrated in our house with so many guests and relatives, but this time it was different.
We had 2 pizza squares (Greenwich Special Overload, our favorite and Ham and Cheese overload), we also ordered 18 – 1pc chicken joy with rice and spaghetti plus 3 tropicoolers for the kids. And while we were eating I have thought about birthday gifts I wish I could receive for my birthday such as a Nikon D7000, a MacBook Pro for a change, and maybe a curt trailer hitches for our trucks/pickups. Yeah, I know, I have those wildest gift ideas.
Though it was not that “bongga”, I could still say that I have enjoyed it. I celebrated my birthday with my family and my boyfriend’s family, and some of our dear friends. What matters most in life is not how much you spend for a party but who you spend it with.
