My Mom's birthday get-together was on November 1st of 2012, but I wasn't able to post this due to my busy schedule. Also because I felt lazy uploading pictures and videos from my phone. But anyway, here's some of the pictures I took on her birthday. Just so you guys know, that was her first birthday party ever. She really haven't had one when she was a kid up to growing up because her parents couldn't afford to do it. That being said, she was really emotional about that birthday party.
Tadannnnnn.......Mom's first birthday cake ever! hahaha......I know, it sounds a little sad and funny at the same time. We ordered the cake from a local bakeshop, and I made those little cupcakes with M&M's on top of it. I know how to bake, just a little though. I am not confident enough to bake for other people aside from my family. Simply because, if they won't like it, they will still eat it anyway. lol
Look at that! Yummmm......My Papa took care of the Lechon (roasted pig). Lechon is very famous in our place. A party or gathering isn't complete without it. You can get a whole pig for around Php 2,500 to Php 5,000. It's a lot cheaper in the province. In Manila, a size of pig like that in the photo, would cost you about Php 5,000 to Php 7,000.
Aren't we cute?...hehehe...This is my dysfunctional family! Funny huh? lol We are like friends. We love being around each other but not too long though! hahaha
Here's some of the folks helping us preparing some of the food. I am very grateful our neighbors are always there to help us when we need them the most. That's part of the Filipino Culture I guess!
In the picture.....Ewad, Ate Gengen, Libeth, Jelo, Beauty and others. Most of our visitors are from my Father's side. Mom's family is from Camiguin Island so they really couldn't come by that easy. It takes 4 hours by boat for them to be able to visit us.
These people are the members of Saint Peter and Paul basketball team - Daniel's team.
The party was fun. I didn't expect it to be that fun. I'll be seeing same faces in May for Papa's birthday. Hopefully things will work out as planned.
Overall, I am happy that Mama enjoyed on her birthday. It's very rewarding to see your parents happy because of you. I wish I could give my parents more happiness in the years to come. Happy Birthday again to my Mom.
