day 2467 – aging well

i’ll be the first to admit i didn’t sleep well not knowing how this quarantine birthday would turn out. going into the day, i had no plans besides a home cooked dinner and cake with family. waking up, i thought i’d do a solo lift, have a couple of lonely hours waiting for dinner time to arrive. fortunately, it got better as the day unfolded and turned out to be quite eventful. i met up with some friends who got me onezo bubble tea, then had a hangout to take some shenanigan photos, and finished off with a zoom short party after a decadent dinner. i’ll be the honest i wasn’t looking forward to this because growing older is hard to accept, especially when i feel like i’ve underachieved all my life. i mulled about it for some time, but maturity came around and said that age is just a number; my heart and body still feels young

day 2436 – ice cream cake

crazy quarantine time isn’t the most ideal way to spend any birthday, but with no place to dine in, my brother will have to settle for a sushi takeout dinner. we also changed it up and brought an ice cream cake from dairy queen. it was quite the nostalgic taste because we haven’t had it since our teenage years. i really hope this covid situation has significant improvements soon so we won’t be trapped in our homes desperately looking for things to entertain ourselves with

day 2395 – coach jervin’s

saturday night celebrating coach jervin’s birthday at flightclub. i brought sushi to the potluck dinner and it was demolished within twenty minutes. after much eating, chatting and cake cutting, we played big games of mafia. it was really fun since it was my first time being a mafia. can’t believe some of us stayed until almost 2am just chatting in the dark. this was after teaching seven straight hours so i was super tired and my brain could barely function properly

day 2356 – barbie’s birthday

we celebrated earlier over the weekend, but as with all other times, we always try to have the cake on the day of. we took a bunch of photos and enjoyed this lovely mango mousse cake. i hardly show my appreciation for what he does for me and the family. as we all grow older, i understand i must try harder to show how much i appreciate the distance he goes to do what’s best of us. i’ll definitely try harder to be the better daughter he’s always wanted. i want nothing but a healthy and happy amongst my family. hope that this year will be the best year yet

day 2069 – cake ceremony

rushed home to get the cake ceremony done otherwise my mom will be pissed that the cake is still sitting in the fridge. i didn’t really understand why we bought the cake so far in advance when it should technically be done on wednesday. the dessert didn’t fit too well in my diet though the mango mousse is not the only thing that’s wrecking my diet. time really does fly and we’re already until the fourth month of the year and it’ll be my birthday in a month’s time

day 2012 – flightclub anniversary

even though i couldn’t really do much having banged up both my left and right legs, i still attended the anniversary open gym. i wanted to at least chill with the rest of the flightclub family and be there for their important celebration. i like that this is a place where i’ve met some new friends and learned some new flips and tricks. hoping i’ll hit a few more tricks in their second year

day 1769 – may birthday cake

big save on cake at showtime for all the may babies in the office. last year may babies got ripped off on our faceless cake. this year, we sure got an extra large cake with our caricatures on it. it seems absurd to be recelebrating a birthday that happened a month after the actual date. after stuffing my face, literally, i went for my second tricky class and got more practice flips in. i hope to attend as often as i can cause i want it back soon

day 642 – day of birth

today the calendar says that i turn another year older, but i don’t feel much different and certainly don’t feel much wiser. celebrating my special day with the family, the people that will put up with me and will always be there for me no matter what happens. time sure flies by quicker as i get older, but i don’t want to grow up just yet because there’s too much waiting for me to explore. i am truly blessed to have every one of you supporters out there being patient with me and not giving up on me. i can only promise i will make my very best effort to work towards my goals to be a better me. it would have been a more enjoyable celebration if i wasn’t sick on the day of my birth

day 438 – potluck

image

a thanksgiving potluck with a large selection of  of delicious food was called for. so many choices of desserts available, i don’t even know where to begin. i only managed to try half the dishes and was already enough to keep my stomach satiated until 10pm. too much eating over this weekend isn’t a good thing at all. too much food to tempt me but can’t eat it if it doesn’t fit my macro

day 433 – cartoon cake

i was cake shopping around in t&t and for a second, i was tempted to get this for my mom’s birthday. that would have been a huge surprise to everyone, and would have been really interesting to see her reaction. unfortunately that won’t happen since i stuck with a the traditional asian style cake of strawberry mousse. i didn’t think she would be too fond of this having this cake anyways
