happy birthday dadi ♥

I know, I know I got tons of backlogs and its piling up other than today is yet another special day I couldn’t miss, so I’m writing shortly for the love of my life.

I couldn’t stop the time from ticking, us from getting old each year, but as we do may we value more the importance of health, love and family. May we grow in faith each day, may we learn to value even the little things around and count our blessings happily.

Dear husband, I wish you’d stay the same person, even annoying and bully boy at times. I wish you’d stay thoughtful and caring and loving, even if you’re not showy at all. May this year bring you more patience, more peace and more money (so, Momi can shop-all-you-can). Seriously, I wish you good luck in whatever endeavor you’d consider, I’ll be forever supportive because that’s what wives are made for.

Happy Happy Birthday ‘Ney! ♥


Your growing family,

Momi, Bea, Lucky Boi & Astro Boi



P.S. Treat me to a decent dinner later, oki 🙂


happy birthday sista ♥

sister noun \ˈsis-tər\ : a female who has one or both parents in common with another <wiki>


Growing up with a younger sibling was not easy at all, a female sibling to be exact, especially that our age gap was quite big there was a generation gap and it took us long before we finally started to jibe and got on the same wavelength. And we have fights sporadically –big and small, which I think is very normal to every sister who’s both tough and insane and smart. 🙂

I know I’m not the perfect nor the ideal big sister other than I’m trying to be one by being peaceful in all my actions and by doing the right thing (?), and I’m making an effort to create a good relationship because we only have each other and that we should stick together thru thick or thin. Okay, I don’t like this post to sound like a drama marathon because it’s her birthday week. She’ll mark her 30 something birthday on the 26th so this post. And we had a little celebration in advance last Saturday after her shift –a simple dinner at my favorite bistro.

With warm bread to start while enjoying a good convo, catching up like we didn’t see each other for ages.

I had her sample my new favorite pasta dish.


Spaghetti Vongole, fresh clams, sautéed with garlic, tomatoes, white wine, olive oil and sprinkled with chili flakes.

And had her pick our pizza, I had no idea she wanted the flatbread so we had it.


Caprese, tomato slice, fresh mozzarella, basil, alfredo sauce, topped with basil leaves


Someday, somehow I’ll be more giving like if there’s only one cookie, I’ll have her have it or at least give her the bigger half because she needs it more than I do. Sisters are meant to share, to care, to help and to have fun with.

Sister dear, may you have a good life ahead, may you have more healthy years to come and may you succeed in whatever decisions you’ll made. And remember that sisters to sisters we will always be no matter how amount of boo-boo and brouhaha will come to us.


Happy Happy Birthday Sista! ♥

Let’s celebrate this weekend with the ubiquitous smell of incense and stinky estero and delicious hakaw!
