My 33rd Boitday!

Since papa has been hospitalized, I stopped thinking of how I want to celebrate my birthday. Before I would think of maybe having a party at home, would ask my brother’s family to come over and I’ll cook some dishes. Or maybe I’ll invite my friends in the office or college or high school barkada to come and see our new house. Well probably have a dvd marathon overnight while doing our tomaan session, we could go jogging in the morning or go swimming in a nearby resort. All of those plans are set aside and my world stopped moving since Papa had a mild stroke days before my birthday.

Good thing he recovered. He is now able to walk and somehow talk. We can now understand what he is saying though he needs to say it slowly. That’s the reason why I’ve decided to just treat them out on my birthday. No more fancy celebration. I’ve realized that this should be a celebration of my dad’s fast recovery rather than my birthday. So off we went to SM centerpoint. Me and hubby came at exactly 1PM. Weve waited for them for just about ten minutes and at last, I saw my Papa waiving outside the mall about to come in. He came with my stepmom, my brother and my stepmoms niece. We had our lunch in the foodcourt because we want to take advantage of Papa’s senior citizen card. In fairness I saved almost P200 pesos for the meal. Each of us, six in total, chose a meal which is less than a hundred pesos… minus the 20% discount for senior citizen, it only sums up to around P450 for the 6 of us!

After lunch, weve decided to watch a movie…well, dad at first doesn’t want to go because he thinks it would cost me a lot of all of us will go but since there is a Movie Fiesta in SM Centerpoint which will only cost us P25 each, he agreed to it. So off we went and watched “The Cabin in the Woods” which is a horror/thriller type of movie. Its not so bad and it’s kinda interesting naman so Papa and the rest of the guys enjoyed it. After the movie, I asked them to go home ahead of us as I and hubby will be buying our merienda. We went to the famous Aling Banang in San Juan City which is just about two streets away from SM Centerpoint. We bought pancit bihon, pancit canton, spaghetti and palabok and on our way to their house, we also bought maja blanca and puto to complete the meal. We ate at the store and had a hearty laugh. I really feel blessed to be able to give joy to and happiness to Papa and to his family. We came home at around 8PM already. Sooo tired. It’s such a fun and fulfilling day for me. This is the most fulfilling birthday so far and the most humble of all. It only costed me less than a thousand bucks and I get to make 6 people happy. Only proves that the best thing in life if not free...not so expensive haha!  Thank you Lord for all the blessings and for letting me celebrate this day with people who loves me.
