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.
