birthday celebration

I don't usually celebrate my birthday. Im also not used to receiving gifts on that day so im really very thankful when someone remembers my birthday.

I went to the grocery to pick up some additional stuff that i'll be needing for what i'll be preparing. I met up with bf on the supermarket & we just ate together. When i went home i was surprised when i saw this bouquet of flowers waiting for me...

wow!
2 dozens of red roses...it's valentines day!

Apparently, it's from my Ninang & Ninong (Godmother & Godfather). I feel like a teenager since i don't usually receive flowers..not even from bf. I received my first bouquet of flowers from bf when we were...take note of this...already 5 years together. He gave me a dozen red roses on Valentines day because i told him he had never given me flowers yet. He's not very romantic at all...tsk tsk tsk..i wonder why i fell in love with that guy at all. *grumbles*

Anyways, i was so happy. Then early that morning i received the PO card so i went out again to pick Linda's love package. When i went home i went about to preparing some bread rolls my way, then cooking sauteed mushrooms my way, white spaghetti my way...wondering why its my way? It's simply because im the type of person who just doesn't follow recipes. I mean, i do read cookbooks, but i don't strictly follow them...definitely not a 'by the book'. I follow my instinct together with common sense.

As far as i know, most of my dishes are edible..lol!
But then as what bf says, i am a good cook. So at least i know that this is a part that i am confident of.


Well, this is our simple meal...rice is staple in a filipino/asian table. It will always be present. So, i have my own white spaghetti, bread rolls (on which i forgot to cut before taking a pic), prawns cooked in coconut cream, mum's fried chicken, i don't even know what to call the dish at the center because it's my dad's own concoction (-__-"). It's not menudo or caldereta, but i have to say that it's good. Let's go with a simple 'pork stew'..hehehe

A birthday meal is never complete without a cake,right?

I had a black forest cake, but im not a fan.

It's because sometimes black forest by Red Ribbon is good when they don't smother the cherry dressing with kirschwasser. It's just that this cake have a very strong alcohol taste that's why i don't like it.

Oh & the next day, i was about to go to the Poveda fair (but it was later on i realized that it's Sunday, not saturday) & drop by at Rustan's to finally purchase a MAC 217 when my bf sent me a text message saying that dad was involved in a motorcycle accident. I was already on the train by that time & when i read that message i was dumbfounded. Good thing i was sitting. I immediately went home & had to cancel my gf's day out...With God's grace, he only suffered leg sprain...thank God!

Though I can't exactly say the same to his baby, his Yamaha Vmax. I bet dad threw a fit when he saw the damage on it. It got dents & scratches...tsk tsk tsk..im sure it would cost a lot in having it restored back..

At least, he is safe. All through the time horrid details were running on my head.. (-__-")

Well, that's how my bday went on..

I'll be doing another giveaway maybe at the end of the month or or early November.
That's it
Have a great to you!

Jaa ne~!

hehe. The food looks delicious! I never strictly follow a recipe. Always have to make it your own way somehow! lol. That's what makes it unique right? Your boyfriend needs to be more romantic! hmmmz... Why did you fall in love with him? LOL. Maybe you should post it on your anniversary or v-day. haha. I'm not a fan of V-day so it's not for me (even though I love V-day colors! hahaha). You know what's the best cake? Chinese cake with lots of mix-fruits and cute decoration and not so sweet frosting! hahahha. Frosting that taste too sweet is not my ideal of a cake -___- lol. Korean cakes are good but they never add enough mix-fruits for me. It has more frostings than Chinese cakes. Just my opinion from what I've bought. lol. But the cake you had looks good to me right now ;]

Elsa said...

I love birthday celebrations :) I had a "Pink Positive" themed party this year haha :D

Those roses are sweeeet. And all those food look yummy, I wish I know how to cook. Maybe if I get the courage to try my luck in the kitchen, everything will have my "personal stamp" as well since I am hopeless at following cooking instructions :D

Sorry about the motorcycle, but glad your dad is fine :)

OMGGGG im so sorry about your dad. I'm really glad that he only got a leg sprain. This happened to my grandparents too. They were riding on a moped and then my grandfather like tried to throw garbage into a moving garbage truck and like the whole moped fell. They're okay (I was like freaking out because they're old).

I love the roses

Seems you had a nice party :)

*Nehs* said...

oh.. yummy foodssss!!!!!!!!!! not a b1g fan of black forest too. :)

Lisa Kate said...

Oh my goodness, I wanna come over and make you cook for me!!!

The roses are so pretty! My hubs (before marriage, of course lol) used to buy me flowers all the time, mostly because he did something bad. Believe me, I hate flowers now because they remind me of fighting! Plus, they die so quick and really are just not worth it. You are better off without them!! I'd rather him spend the money on food lol

I normally like Black Forest cake, but I HATE alcohol tasting cakes. Yuck. Give me the booze on the side, thankyouverymuch!

Sounds like you had a great birthday though!!!

gio said...
