Kuya gave me the birthday cake.
It is a good thing they are very easy to please when it comes to food or maybe it is because I know what they like.. My Ate and Kuya were so happy with what I cooked. One would think it was their birthday!
It is quite difficult to cook so this is reserved for very special occasions only.
Halabos na Suahe
Butter Garlic Shrimps with 7 Up
Lechon Kawali is my birthday staple.
Pancit sotanghon with the drippings of Lechon Kawali
Indian Mangoes with my homemade bagoong
I asked my Ate to buy Arce ice cream.
Snowball: Can I have some ice cream, please?
Of course, I did not give her. I do not like giving her human food.
Aside from celebrating with my family, I also celebrated my birthday with my senior friends, PD, Tita Butchie, Tita Mita and Tita Tess.
It is our yearly tradition.
I had a Chinese Thai menu.
Chinese food but I used ingredients from Bangkok.
Chinese Sausage from a little store in Bangrak.
Pepino Salad to complement the sausage.
I feel bad I only bought a few packets of the Cogi Tempura Batter.
Super!!!! The best! The next time I go to Bangkok I will buy a suitcase full of Cogi!
I regret that I did not buy a lot.
My dipping sauce is also from Thailand.
Shrimp Fried Rice with seasoning from Bangkok, as well.
As usual, Lechon Kawali
Tita Butchie gave me to most wonderful birthday candle for the cake.
But I did not have a birthday cake!!!! The only reason why I invite friends over to celebrate happybirthdayeveryday is because of the "kek" and the blowing of the candle with matching singing of "happy birthday to you...."
I had to improvise and used the Mantecado Arce ice cream, instead.
Jing said, ice cream "kek".
You light up the "starter candle
And then it will light the 8 candles... will open up like petals and a muscial "happy birthday" could be heard.
Nevertheless, I was very delighted.
I do get tired sometimes cooking all the time for my happybirthdayeveryday celebrations but it is all worth it.
My family and friends are all so worth it.
