The menu c/o our neighborhood chinese restaurant:
Crispy Noodles with Mixed Seafood
Fish Fillet with Oyster Sauce
Beef with Brocolli Flower
and Gulaman for our drinks.
We started with the “blowing of the cake” from Lolo Floren and Lola Nely. Iya’s so demure! Her blow is like a kiss from a butterfly, barely making any flickering movement to the flame. Henry was the one who blew it for her this time. She was smiling and looking at everybody while we sang Happy Birthday.
We ate afterwards, our parents, Iya and I, took advantage of the al fresco dining while our friends and Henry ate inside and watched a video. She loved the crispy noodles and did not want to eat fish. So I had to sneak little fish meat and vegetables every spoonful. After eating I sliced the cake for dessert. She ate a little cake and played with Gian, our friends Roy and Gina’s little boy. As usual she’s such a lady and a little worrysome whenever Gian touches her toys. She kept on saying “wag tapon” (she’s protective). There was also a time when both of them were tugging for the same toy she said “Wag malakas!” because she was losing! But she shares, and hands Gian her toy fork.
Iya and Gian opened the following gifts:
Microwave oven – from Henry and Me
Cash Register – from Lolo Leo and Lola Choly
Orange Star Pillow and Soft Pillow
Mr. Potato Head with baby – from Ninang Diane
Activity Puzzle Block – from Ninong Roy

We love you baby! May you grow up God fearing and with lots of love in your heart. Always remember that we are here for you no matter what happens. You are our greatest gift!
