So this is what it feels like to be 25. Nothing out of the ordinary. Ha!
Celebrated my 25th birthday in Manila this year, which is the second time I was out of town (last year, we were in Cebu). My day started with our PC exposure at Paseo Center, with about a third of my classmates with me. It was a good day at work. I had fun tinkering with the machines and processes at the backroom operation section for our branches. We also had this memorable/awesome lunch at the sidewalk (long story why) near a parking area, in front of the jolly jeeps. We all had fun at the PC, thanks to Tatay Reno who was our classmate-slash-mentor for the day.
Post-work, I met up with Fonzi, my uncle Gerry and cousin Myx at Greenbelt for dinner. We ate at Sentro, which has super yummy Pinoy food. We, well I, had a grand time pigging out. My sister called up later that night to say that she had planned a surprise on Facetime for me, but unfortunately, Mommy ruined the plan by greeting me too early in the morning. As usual! I miss those goofballs! The next day (my birthday extension), I spent with Fonzi. I always look forward to spending my Manila weekends with him.
I am so thankful for another year to celebrate life, love, family, friendship and career. I just wish Mama was still here to see me grow up some more. I’m sure she cooked Carbonara for me in heaven! Right Ma? ❤
